    Jayne Castle delivers consistently engaging paranormals and this is another one to add to my keeper shelf. In the Lost Night, the main characters are interesting and have real (paranormal) issues. I enjoyed Lost Night so much I listened to it twice the first week I got it.

    Vampire and thief Raylene Pendle doesn’t need more complications in her life. Her Seattle home is already overrun by a band of misfits, including Ian Stott, a blind vampire, and Adrian deJesus, an ex–Navy SEAL/drag queen. But Raylene still can’t resist an old pal’s request: seek out and steal a bizarre set of artifacts. Also on the hunt is a brilliant but certifiably crazy sorceress determined to stomp anyone who gets in her way.

    Story

    Hellbent was the second book in this series and I feel robbed that I didn't listen to the first book (Bloodshot) prior to enjoying this tale.

    Excellent secondary characters, all well written and interesting. This vampire, Raylene Pendle, has surrounded herself with a variety of misfits. Her primary job as a high end thief is challenged by a contract to steal some 'penis bones' for a collector.

    You cannot guess where this narrative is going, ever. It's well read by Natalie Ross, who manages to seamlessly voice all the secondary characters and give them individual voices.

    I liked this book a lot. I will be getting Bloodshot next!

    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    Story

    The Secret is a wonderful read. The story is interesting and plausible with compelling characters. I enjoyed the narration and had no trouble distinguishing character's voices or hearing the words.

    This story features conflict between the English/Scottish at the borderlands and how that is distinct from the Highland clans. A very interesting perspective on how the families whose members intermarried might have fared.

    I love this tale. Any woman who has given birth will enjoy the heroine's stint as a midwife and her distress at each woman's labor.

    With 22 million of her books in print, and 12 consecutive New York Times best-sellers to her credit, Amanda Quick is a phenomenally popular author of historical romances. With This Ring, set in Regency England, sends a beautiful, headstrong woman on a perilous quest for the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite. To recover her family’s meager fortunes, Beatrice Poole must locate the antiquities stolen from her favorite uncle shortly before his highly suspicious death.

    Story

    This story has it all, murder, mystery and a horrid novelist. It's a wonderful read with just the right amount of historical detail to give it place, without overwhelming the quick moving plot. Barbara Rosenblat does an excellent job reading the book. I lost myself listening to her characters' voices.

    Amanda Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz and Jayne Castle) has a deft hand at historical romance. She manages to write a story that features a romantic entanglement but includes lots of other interesting plot elements. I enjoyed it tremendously.

    The indomitable Amelia Peabody and her husband, known to many as "the Father of Curses", are into archaeology and mischief again. This third in the series brings the reader once more into Egypt and the shady world of black market antiquities. The winter excavation season has hardly yet begun when Amelia stumbles onto what looks suspiciously like a ring of thieves.

    Story

    If you like Amelia Peabody, and I do, you'll enjoy this third book in the series featuring an amateur sleuth archaeologist in the early 1900's. There is kidnap, murder and a plethora of ancient antiquities all providing a compelling read.

    I love Barbara Rosenblat's voice for these books, which are all in Amelia Peabody's point of view. Her overwrought prose is part and parcel of the 'journal style' of the story told.

    Great fun! But read the series in order, the relationships all build nicely over time.

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    Story

    This mystery/romance is a great read for anyone who loves to imagine life in Alaska. The new police chief relocates to a small Alaskan town right in the middle of the winter. Everyone places bets on whether or not he'll last until breakup. His romance with the local bush pilot is well plotted and reads believably.

    I enjoy a story about the frontier and the tough minded folks who live there. This story is has a generational whodunit that keeps the reader engaged.

    Gary Littman does a great job reading this narrative. His tone changes as his dry, damaged character begins to be charmed by the natural beauty of his surroundings. Very well done!

    Even in Empire City, a town where weird science is the hope for tomorrow, it's hard for a robot to make his way. It's even harder for a robot named Mack Megaton, a hulking machine designed to bring mankind to its knees. But Mack's not interested in world domination. He's just a bot trying to get by, trying to demonstrate that he isn't just an automated smashing machine, and to earn his citizenship in the process. It should be as easy as crushing a tank for Mack, but some bots just cant catch a break.

    Story

    This wonderful story was a surprise and a delight to hear. In a future where the toxic environment causes spontaneous mutations and self aware robots fight for their rights to live as citizens, Mac lives alone and drives a cab. Each morning he drops by to have his neighbor tie his bow tie for his taxi driver uniform since his hands were made for destruction, not delicate work. One morning he finds the family menaced by a bad guy and saves the day.

    This sets up a devolving set of circumstances that find him searching for a missing child and fighting against an alien menace.

    The entire tone of the narrative is noir detective fiction. You could be hearing a classic Chandler book--except the futuristic setting and the fact that the protagonist is a robot. His constant battle to stay calm and avoid needless destruction (that might jeopardize his citizenship) is charming and fascinating.

    I truly enjoyed listening to this book. It will appeal to anyone who loves first person detective stories as well as those who love a good futuristic look at the world we live in.

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    Story

    I am a huge fan of the JD Robb "In Death" series. Eve Dallas is a tough police detective in this futuristic New York city. The books are intricate, fascinating and exciting to listen to. I would recommend that anyone start at the beginning of the series, just because we learn a little more and more about Eve and Rourke as the books progress.

    This story is an engaging whodunit well worth your time and credit.

    Story

    Anyone who loved Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series is going to be thrilled to find this gem. Sophie Jordan has created a teen protagonist with a compelling problem. She's a dragon shifter in a family of women who can't or don't want to shift. She glories in her change and her additional powers until she breaks some law and her mom smuggles her away in the dark of night. Then she has to deal with a new high school... and keeping her dragon hidden away.

    This book is fresh and wonderfully written. I'm a grown adult with no kids recommending I read YA books. I stumbled upon this one and I'm glad I did. Along with the typical teen aged angst, there's a great storyline and I couldn't stop reading. I'm looking forward to more by this author.

    Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.
