    Annabelle Peyton, determined to save her family from disaster, decides to use her beauty and wit to tempt a suitable nobleman into making an offer of marriage.

    This was the very first vampire thriller! Pure innocence becomes the target of age-old evil. Virtuous Laura has grown up in a solitary castle and longs for a close friend. Her wish seems granted with the arrival of a beautiful and mysterious stranger named Carmilla. A friendship develops but the brooding mood and sexual overtones mar Laura's happiness.

    Overall

    so not impressed, not worth listening to. i took a few days to get through this book because i did not want to listen to it.

  • Succubus Blues: Georgina Kincaid, Book 1

    Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid. When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical? But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic.

    Jessica says: "Another great paranormal series!"
    "love this whole series!!!!!"
    Overall

    i don't know if it's just me but every book in this series has been a bit predictable. i still love the story though and i absolutely love richelle mead's writing!!!!

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Roger says: "review of Abby Cooper series"
    "good but hoping it will get great later in series."
    Overall

    this was an interesting book, could be a bit predictable at times, but a fun read overall, and i do want to continue with reading the series.

    There's something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori. Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price's attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He's the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.

    Jennifer says: "This again?"
    "boring"
    Overall

    i was bored listening to this book, and all of the incredibly unresonable things that happened at the end
    i only listened to the whole book so i would not feel like i wasted a credit on it, but no i still feel that way i wasted a credit on this book, i guess the only thing worse would have been if i had spent my money on it!

    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    Sandi J Wilson says: "FABULOUS FIND"
    "hill-arious"
    Overall

    the whole time i listened to this book it was one joke after another, i had to pause the book to catch my breath i love this author and this book and i definately reccomend this series!!!

    There is a vampire war brewing in the underworld and at the center of it all is Damali Richards, spoken word artist and Vampire Huntress. But she is not just any Vampire Huntress, she is the millenium Neteru: a woman so potentially powerful that the vampire world is about to invoke a bloody battle that threatens to spill over onto her streets in order to posses her. It's just a matter of who will get to her first.

    Dr. Pat says: "Great Book...Terrible Narration"
    "wish the whole series was on audible"
    Overall

    this book is great! the writer is incredibly descriptive and she has a good story to tell i will be following up and reading the rest of the series since only the first two books are on audio, so that is the only drawback.
