    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    Overall

    I wish all of my books could be read by Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante, this book is fabulous. I have waited it seems like forever for this book to come out and it does not disappoint!!

    It isn't listed as a romance and I can see why but there is still the underlying romantic tension between Mac and Jericho.

    There is so much I want to say about this book I don't know where to start so I will just say that this book is definitely worth the money! You will not be disappointed.

    I really enjoyed this book....but....and I can't believe I am saying this but there was just too much sex, now I enjoy a good sex scene with the best of them but I think the author missed a lot of opportunity to do more with the story, Liv and Miller couldn't accomplish ANYTHING without having sex is some fashion and towards the end I was fast forwarding. That being said it is a great book, Liv is a bit to wimpy for my taste and when he ends things she forgives him WAY to easily and quickly. The cliff hanger I did NOT see coming and is a great shocker! I sure hope in the next book Liv has a backbone ALL of the time and not just when her 'spunk' rises to the top. Defiantly will get the next book!

    When Lucy walks out of a frozen forest, wearing only a silk dress and sandals, she isn't sure how she got there. But when she sees Colin, she knows for sure that she's here for him. Colin has never been captivated by a girl the way he is by Lucy. With each passing day their lives intertwine, and even as Lucy begins to remember more of her life - and her death - neither of them is willing to give up what they have, no matter how impossible it is.

    I love all of the books from Christina Lauren but this one...I don't know what to say. Usually I can't NOT listen to a book, it took me 3 days to finish this book. I normally ignore everything and listen to my books but this one I didn't mind pausing and then didn't RUSH to get back. The core of the plot is good but I just don't know why I could not get into this book like others. I think a lot of it is because if took me a bit to get what Lucy is and how so many people can see her as a Walker and others can't "because they aren't looking". I wish I could put my finger on it! The good news is the price is GREAT, I would NOT use a credit but definitely pay for it if you are looking for a YA Sci-Fi. At the beginning of the book she was hearing a voice...what happened to that voice, it just stopped talking to her?? Just all around hard to get into. I would love to hear what others are thinking about this one, if it's just me or if others found it hard to get into also.

    To me the sign of a good book is when I have to fast forward because I can't take it or when my blood pressure sky rockets and this book did it all. It made me sick, disgusted and sad plus laughing and crying. I recommend this book 100% but only start listening when you have the time to listen from start to finish.

    Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors - and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan.

    Another great Novel by CF, I have however noticed a trend with authors who have series books with 10+ editions, they seem to be getting away from what made them great....a wonderful story with a bit of sexy thrown in...it seems like authors, including Ms. Feehan, that they are writing stories around the sex now instead of sneaking sex info scenes. I don't know if I am just weird but I find I miss the plot and am fast forwarding through all of the sex, now I love good love scenes but sometimes there is TOO much.

    All that being said I loved this book it brought A LOT of old characters back and showed how some of them are related to each other and learned more about parents of others. It's a great read over all, I did have a hard time getting into and didn't mind pausing it (normally I NEVER pause a book) but I never thought about NOT finishing.

    It's surely worth a credit!

    It’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Life will continue to throw every bad thing it has at her, and she will continue to not put her head in an oven. But that’s okay. That which doesn’t kill her will just require a few hours of mental insanity. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running.

    A lot of the DH books can be stand alone books, yes it is good to have read ALL of them and you would enjoy them much more having read the previous one but not necessary, this one I don't think would be good as a stand alone. You have a HUGE cast of past and present DH with A LOT of their own back stories so it is good have know the history. That being said I loved this book, it has great twists and turns and opens up for a new war coming!!!

    For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…. The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde's Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

    I loved this book as much or more than the first. I really enjoy a book that actually gets my blood pressure rising, this book has it all, a leading male you love and the other you love to hate! I can't wait for the final book in this trilogy I am sure will have me listening over and over like the first two. If you like a book with steamy sex, twists and turns and characters you want to punch in the face then this is for you!

    Greyson King. My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something. He lied. His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero. There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.

    It's 2:00 A.M. and I am laughing out lout, this is a hot, sexy, funny and heart warming read and I can't wait to listen again. I loved the first 3 but this one is completely different and possibly my favorite of the 4 but it's hard to compare, I don't remember laughing in the first 3, this one just has a different 'feel' to it. It's nice that the author took Melanie's personality and wrote around her humor.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I couldn't even listen because of the narrator....


    What didn’t you like about Madeleine Bundy’s performance?

    It was AWFUL!!! WHY oh WHY did you switch narrators? I am sure she would do fine on a book that didn't include male voices but this was does BIG TIME, she TOTALLY RUINS it, I didn't make it past the first chapter....I waited and waited for this to be out on audible and it was a waste....she doesn't even modulate her voice for a male voice I was listening and didn't even know it was Seth's POV


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author but this narrator totally ruined the book for me, you can't tell when its a female or male because she doesn't change her voice. I waited and waited for rubbish. Listen to the first two and READ the third. PLEASE oh PLEASE DON"T use this narrator again!!

    It is A.D. 1486. Fresh from his treacherous turning of the tides against Richard III in the Battle of Bosworth, Sir Gaston de Russe's reputation is dark and dirty. Those loyal to Richard hate him and those loyal to Henry Tudor fear him. He is, after all, The Dark One. In order to gain a strong foothold in Yorkshire, Henry sends Gaston to one of the largest fortresses in the north, a massive bastion called Mt. Holyoak Castle.

    I really enjoyed this book, this is my third book by this author and I am surprised at how different they all are and they are all great! I would recommend ANY books by this author. I think this one is my favorite, I laughed and cried and even though it is extremely long it didn't feel like it. I totally cried in one scene and it was freaking out my kids but TOTALLY worth it! Of course love triumphs in the end but the journey to the end was fabulous!
