    Candace Steele is as tough as she is alluring. For her, killing vampires isn't just a job-it's personal: She's still haunted by erotic memories of an all-consuming affair with Ash, a seductive vampire who thrilled her-and then nearly destroyed her. Now, working undercover in a Las Vegas casino, she seduces the most powerful undead-right before she drives a stake through their unbeating hearts.

    I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more in the series. I finished it in one day. I love the main character! She is strong and really sticks to her guns. She doesn't let her love interest run over her. The story line is full of action, romance, and drama.

    The narration was very good too. It wasn't too slow and there were no strange habits.

    When Marty Andrews gets bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle, her blond hair darkens, the hair on her legs starts growing at an alarming rate, and her mood swings put her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics in serious jeopardy. Then a drool-worthy man shows up at her door claiming that he accidentally bit Marty. And since he's a werewolf, she is now, too. Thinking Keegan Flaherty is clearly insane, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there's more at stake than just her highlights.

    This was an entertaining book reminiscent of Mary Janice Davidson's undead series. The main character is a bit of a ditz at first, but she grows on you as the story progresses. I will definitely be on the look out for other books by this author.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo”.

    Story

    I usually like everything Molly Harper puts out, but this one was SO BORING!!!! It just dragged on and on. It was also extremely predictable with no surprises whatsoever. I think what contributed to it being so boring was that it kept changing perspectives between five different people. That slowed to story line down to a crawl and made it painful to listen to.

    The narration was great, as it always is with Amanda Ronconi.

    Story

    I keep thinking this series is going to get better, but it isn't. The author spends very little time on the main characters and the majority of the book on supporting characters and other pointless story lines. I thought the first book did it to establish the setting and characters, but the second book did it too and this book was the absolute worst!!! There was very little interaction between the two main characters at all and absolutely no character development. There isn't even a good plot to make up for it. It was basically a book of all filler and no real content. I kept zoning out because what was going on had little to do with story. I had to force myself to finish the book over and over again. I have never wanted a book to end so badly.

    For some reason I just couldn't get into this book. I didn't particularly care for the two main characters or the plot. The story was a little disjointed and seemed to stop and start a lot. The issues between the Gray and Dylan became a little annoying and monotonous. Also, new characters seemed to appear from no where, maybe trying to set up further books.

    The first three books in the series were okay and showed some potential, but this one fell short for me. I think this is probably the last book I will get in the series.

    I enjoyed this book overall. It had enough action in it to keep it interesting, but also had some decent character development. The characters had enough depth to to pull you into their lives. I will definitely get another book in the series.

    The narration was okay, but narrator has some speech quirks that get on my nerves a little. After I got into the story I was able to ignore them.

    Growing up on the tough Philly streets, Gwen O'Neill has learned how to fend for herself. But what is she supposed to do with a nice, suburban Jersey boy in the form of a massive Grizzly shifter? Especially one with a rather unhealthy fetish for honey, moose, and…uh…well, her. Yet despite his menacing ursine growl and four-inch claws, Gwen finds Lachlan "Lock" MacRyrie cute and really sweet. He actually watches out for her, protects her, and unlike the rest of her out-of-control family manages not to morbidly embarrass her.

As museum docent and gift shop manager, Ella is able to keep her distance from people - and her powers in check - while surrounding herself with the artifacts she loves.

    I normally love Christine Warren, but this book was one of my least favorites. Maybe because the author was trying to establish the new series, there was very little story line and just a lot of background information. I'm hoping the next books in the series are better. I'll still get the next book.

    The narrator wasn't very convincing as the guy. It was a really fake sounding girl interpretation of a guy's voice.

    This is closer to a novella than a full novel. It was extremely short and I feel a little cheated that I paid so much for it. However, it was a steamy little story that could be really developed into a great series.

    Story

    This book was okay, but nothing special. On the good side, it held my attention and I didn't think about returning it. However, it took me much longer to get through it because I wasn't driven to keep listening. The two main issues I had were a lack of real plot and lack of character development. It was just a series of kidnappings that were pretty random with little build up or background. The two main characters were underdeveloped, especially the guy. There was also no development between the two characters and their relationship.....he kidnapped her and made her "his"....end of development.

    The narration was "just okay" as well. I have heard much better and much worse.

    I won't be getting the next book in the series.
