    This is a very quick read compared to the other books I normally download but don't let that deter you. It's a funny, cute and quick romance book. Yes, some parts were predictable but let's be honest, ALL romance books have predictable parts. I laughed out loud at some parts and smirked at other. The banter between the two leads was really well done and I'm looking forward to the next book, that I'm assuming will be Maggie.

    If you want a great quick beach read or something to listen to while on a flight....I recommend taking a look at this.

    New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates - until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed - and bound by a love stronger than time.

    Story

    Okay, let's start with the Narration - FABULOUS. This man as Mac's voice down pat. So what I want to hear and is spot on. I can give a little on the female voices cause the guys voices are dead on. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

    The story. Mac's story has been one I've been waiting for (okay, I want all the guys since I've fallen in love with them in Book 1) and I wasn't disappointed. I loved how it introduced his father and the story with him and Tania is just beautiful. I love that her attitude is epic and doesn't fail. I also loved the hidden story line with her sister and I can't wait to see how that plays out.

    Now, yes....I will say that - aside from our lovely cop in book 2, the female leads suffer from a bit of victim-itise BUT I was expecting that in this book considering that Tania is suppose to be Myst's best friend, who yes by the way - I still loathe. I really have high hopes for the next female leads in the future books.

    If you've been debating on this series, I'd say go for it. Couple of things to keep in mind:

    1. Female leads in Book 1 & Book 2 - need to get smacked and will drive you insane. Focus on the boys..they'll make up for it.

    2. There is no time gaps in her book endings and start ups. Where one book ends, the next picks right up. It's nice.

    3. The world of the dragons can be a little off at times but eventually it evens out and is coming together nicely.

    4. Expecting BDB? Not gonna find it here. Dragons. No Vamps. Not a one to be found. Leave your BDB comparison's at the door, honestly.


    Overall I was really happy with the book and I'm highly anticipating Book 4.

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    Where does The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top ten, hands down. This book was wonderful. I had to listen to it everywhere. Such a wonderful introduction to a series about brothers that I can't WAIT to learn more about.


    What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For a while here I've had such bad experiences with narrators and was disappointed time and time again. Angela Dawe is wonderful for this series and I'm THRILLED to see that they kept her to read for the whole thing. Her accents and the changes in her voice are perfect and just made the experience that much more wonderful.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Ian and Beth are in his bedroom @ the Duke's house and she shoots straight up off the bed (don't want to reveal toooo much), That scene....was so touching and emotional, and Angela's voice bring life to the characters just made it all the more so.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're like and tend to shy away from 'historical' romances...this book...gave me faith in that genre again. I had to go out and buy the 2nd one right away and I allowed myself to even look at more books that are similar like this....This series restored my faith in a genre that I had given up hope on.

    Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with Aegis Guardian Regan Cooper shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse - he's about to become a father. Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world in her hands, she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos.

    Story

    What is there NOT to love about the book, okay the narrator but I'm going to talk about the book first. The story is AMAZING. I love, love, love this story and I thought it was going to be hard as hell to compete with Ares (cause I'm comparing it to the other male of the group that has been published so far) but Than sooooo holds up. He is sexy and aggressive and hot and demanding and pretty much all together perfect.

    I wanted to hate Regan for what she did, I really did but I found myself really, really liking her. That is one of the things that Larissa is amazing at...taking a character that we should all hate and twisting it so that we end up rooting and cheering for them. I LOVED the twist at the end of the book and was so surprised cause that wasn't even anything that I saw coming.

    And weaving in the folks from UG is perfect. I love seeing the brothers coming into the stories.


    Okay now, for the narration. Really???? REALLY??? What were you thinking? What a horrible Horrible choice for narrator. They should have stuck with Hillary Huber from the other books cause she is the best with the voices.

    If you can just move past the voice and listen to the story, it's amazing. I highly recommend this and I can't wait for Reseph's book.

    Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer. For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers....

    This is the first and my favorite book by Jacquelyn Frank. It's the first introduction to the Nightwalkers and I fell just a little bit in love with Jacob. He is the wonderful and stoic soldier that is protecting his people with the job he has: Enforcer. Because of a simple shove from Fate he meets Isabella and together they make one dynamic pairing.
    I love how they interact in the story and the arguments that always seem to happen between them.

    Jacob's book also introduces us to the rest of the Nightwalkers and their world and soon I found that I didn't want to leave. The story happening around them, sucks you in so much that when the book ended I went back and bought the rest of the books in the series without a second thought.

    Never have a read a series so unique and different and spellbinding. Jacquelyn Frank has become one of my favorite and go to writers now.

    For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...

    What three words best describe Vanessa Hart’s voice?

    Odd, Confusing, Poor Choice


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really liked this intro for the series. Someone else also mentioned that it took them a while to understand that it wasn't based in modern time and I understood that. There was no real direct mention in the first chapter, not the prologue, that it happened in the past. Other than that I loved the story. I loved hearing the struggle between the male lead, Chapel, and the female lead, Prudence.

    The twist on a classic vampire story is great. The Holy Grail/Blood Grail story line is wonderful and something that I haven't read before. I'm excited to see how the other members of the Dark Protectors will come into the story and who will they and their mates defeat the enemy in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is very.........odd. Not bad just......odd. Do I think that the book would work better with another narrator, yes. But I do really like the voice the narrator has for Chapel. It's just the voice used for Prudence and her sisters. It's off and not doesn't really work well.

    Bishop has been a vampire for 700 years and though he wishes nothing more than to live his life in peace, getting humans to believe that vampires are not monsters is a difficult task, and vampire hunters like The Reaper make it even more difficult. Believing that a vampire killed her mother, Irina leads a band of vigilantes, determined to rid the world of these monsters. What no one knows is that Irina herself is half vampire. Determined to deny that side of her, Irina captures Bishop.

    Story

    I love the series and Kathryn Smith is becoming one of my trusted authors but this book I'm sad to say is ruined for me by the narrator. She accents are horrible, there is SERIOUS volume issues here. Like she gets to close to the microphone sometimes and she'll sound really loud or high pitched and then sometimes very low or normal.

    I really liked Bishop and would have a feeling that I would have loved Marika a lot more if the accent used for her wasn't slaughtering her for me.

    Okay about the book now:

    Bishop is amazing. I love that he's all MINE and hard ass. To me he very much comes across as a guy that is deceiving. He looks lazy and like he's not going to do anything but push the right button and BOOM, killer on your hands.

    Marika sounds like a fabulously interesting character and I like that she is always fighting within herself over the folklore of the Vampires that her villages tell everyone and what Vampires really do and are. I would love it if there was more of the interaction between all the boys, having them meet up and all but I really like the series.

    It's a great spin on the 'grail' stories vampire lore. I HIGHLY recommend reading book one in this series.

    I LOVED this book, even more so than the first one in the series. Cause this I was able to love both the male AND female lead! The story was awesome. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED how it picked up literally right where the first book ends. We got glimpses of how bad ass Angela was in the first book and I KNEW she would be an awesome female lead and was not disappointed.

    Coreene gives us teasers at what I think one of the next pairing will be (MMMM MMMM MAC!!) I've officially become a BIG fan of Forge! And am I the only one that is hoping for a Venom/Wick pairing?!?!?!!? I'm hoping that Coreene will give us more info and yes a book on Sloane cause he sounds funny and awesome and fabulous.

    Again, let me restate....people that compare this to BDB don't know what they are talking about. BDB isn't the end all, be all that people go on about. I loved Dragonfury and I can't WAIT for book 3.

    OH and....the narrator: Benjamin Darcie.......Love him. AWESOME CHOICE!

    A clandestine race of half-dragon, half-humans known as dragon-shifters lives among us. Bastian, leader of the Nightfury dragon clan, is sworn to protect humankind at all costs. For him, honor and duty always come first. When the clan dictates he take a human mate to sire a son, he falters, aware that for a human to birth a dragon-shifter she must die. Myst, the woman given into his care, is the most extraordinary he’s ever met, and though he can’t bear the thought of harming her, he is bound by duty.

    Story

    This was a really good book. I liked the idea and the plot behind it. I will admit that Myst (the female lead) drove me insane with her reactions to things and through most of the book I wanted to smack her upside of the head. But there other points I wanted to address. Some of the reviews on here are saying this is another BDB and a rip on JR Ward. JR Ward isn't the only person to write fantasy/paranormal romance books nor is she by far the best. This has nothing to do with Vampires and to compare the two books and authors are like comparing oranges with apples.

    People that are hardcore BDB and think the world revolves around all things BDB and Ward will tell you that this book is not worth it, I disagree. I like the idea of half human/half dragons. The guys in the book are interesting and intriguing. The action is good but it does have some slow points, especially with Ivar and the lab stuff but have a feeling that will pick up in the next book.

    If you are looking for a new type of book to read but want to stay in the para/fantasy romance world that I recommend this book.
