    Britain’s high society—le bon ton—loves nothing more than a good scandal, and they’re giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several English gentlemen lost their lives. Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated by Samuel. Not only does he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother.

    Story

    I am one of the few that don't enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration, but she did this book justice. Her pace, and her voices matched the characters. I dare say I enjoyed her on this one.

    Soldier Samuel Hartley has returned from war branded a coward for running way during the slaughter of his squad. He has been disgraced and he moved to the States.

    Now he was returned to England, in search of the man he believes betrayed his battalion to the Indians and the French. His investigation brings him to the home of a fallen comrade Reynard Gordon where he meets her sister Lady Emeline Gordon. At first Lady Emeline was weirded out by this gentlemen who dresses inappropriately and doesn't follow the rules of the ton. Then Samuel hires Emeline to tutor his sister in the ways of a genteel bred lady and Emeline gets to see past the stories she has heard of Samuel.

    Even though Emeline is engaged to Jasper Renshaw, her late brother Reyndard's friend, Emeline finds herself attracted to Samuel and she is drawn into his investigation to find the traitor. Emeline is forced to make a hard decision between a family friend, now turned fiancee whose touch feels brotherly versus a man who is everything the ton shuns, but drives her mad with passion.

    I have tried to read this book twice before and found it a tad boring. This time, I couldn't put it down. I listened to it in two days. The narrator isnt as good as Rosalyn Landor, but it was a well written and entertaining book. I loved Emeline, Samuel and even Jasper. Jasper was a good guy, just not the right one for Emeline. The mystery to find the traitor forced to two suitors vying for her to work together and they found that they actually got along. I think I enjoyed the author creating the situation where Jasper and Samuel kind of became friends. It made the story a little more angsty because there could only be one winner of Emeline's hand.

    I can't wait to read book 2

    This story took up to 8hrs before the plot really unfolded. The narrator didn't make the story better. It was just a slow build up and it didn't reach a peak for me. I will try book 2 because there is potential in the plot.

    Detective Ivan Bekker has hit rock bottom. Not only is he recovering from a bad breakup with a cheating boyfriend, he's also involved in a drug bust gone bad. Ivan had to kill a man, and his friend was shot and is now fighting for his life. Though Ivan is under investigation for his part in the shooting, his boss sends him on an off-the-books undercover operation to close the case. The timing is critical - this could be their chance to plug a leak in the department.

    On the cusp of his 25th birthday, Bo Sanford grows frustrated with his directionless life. Slaving away at his father's construction company all week and partying every weekend leaves him little time for introspection, but he knows it's time for a change. When his best friend Mac drags him to a college party, Bo catches sight of a girl. But not just any girl - the girl of his dreams: a delicate blonde-haired beauty with a pink scarf and a smile that promises warmth and humor. There's just one problem: She isn't a girl.

    There’s nothing worse than a cruel, cunning enemy with time to kill - and my murder to plan. With wicked Fire elemental Mab Monroe long gone, you’d think I could finally catch a break. But someone’s always trying to take me down, either as Gin Blanco or my assassin alter-ago. Now along comes the Spider’s new arch-nemesis, the mysteriously named M. M. Monroe, who is gleefully working overtime to trap me in a sticky web of deceit.

    I loved this audiobook and I am amazed at how Jennifer Estep keeps the quality of the story topnotch though we are in the double digits in the series. I will admit that Madeline Madga Monroe turned out to be a much weaker version of Mab. How disappointing. But she did give Gin all she could handle.

    We still got to see all of our favorite characters both good and bad. What excites me the most is that I have no idea what the author has in store for us next. We know the Ashland underworld will raise a champion tasked to take out the Spider, but whom? what? how? and where will they engage our deadly assassin? I can't wait for the next book.

    With panic and intolerance spreading and streets becoming littered with the Order's propaganda, hostility between Humans and Therians grows daily. Dex and Sloane, along with the rest of the team, are determined to take down the Order and restore peace, not to mention settle a personal score. But the deeper the team investigates the bombings, the more they believe there's a more sinister motive than a desire to shed blood and spread chaos.

    Story

    Book 1 felt like a probation period for Dex. This book saw Dex embraced as a member of The THIRDS. It also saw Dex and Sloane trying to figure out what exactly they were doing with each other.

    Favorite audiobook moment was Cael telling Sloan about Dex and the Vaccum. Funniest scene EVER. I kept rewinding it and laughing. Excellent rendition by the narrator. I read some reviews where Dex's humor annoyed those readers but it's because Dex hides a lot behind jokes, laughter and a jovial personality. It's his coping mechanism with life's hurts and he has had a lot of hurts.

    Given the drama with these two, I certainly see why fraternizing with co-workers is frowned upon. It has brought tension to the workplace and it clouds judgment. I also wonder how the people tasked with protecting society can't tell everyone in their organization is boinking their partner.

    I am impressed with the writing because it is full of humor and the world building is good. I look forward to book 3 and more about the vigilante group. Face it, the tide didn't turn until the vigilantes got involved, so I actually like them. I will wait for the audiobook Jan 2015.

    I enjoy the narrator and the job he is doing.

    Story

    I had avoided this book because many reviews said it was heartbreaking. I guess what I saw was hope. The other side of tragedy when people start picking up the pieces of their lives. The book was written really well. It wasn't overly sappy and it wasn't too fluffy. It have a great flow and great pace. Once I started, I didn't stop listening to it until it finished.

    I loved little Polly. Somehow she saw the capacity for love in Mallory and she grabbed onto it hard. It was so sweet watching the shell that both Mallory and Pete formed around themselves develop crack after crack, until the shells shattered. Love and acceptance is the ultimate Christmas gift and that is what this book was about. The second chance at happiness made this book heartwarming, not heartbreaking. It was a great book to read on New Year's Eve. I felt like I was transported to Mimosa Lane and was a part of the story. I look forward to reading some more books in this series.

    the narrator did a great job, but the book was entirely too long and slow for my enjoyment. I think the characters didn't get physical until the last 4-5 hours of the book
    I came in expecting a hot book because the characters weren't really endearing.

    I did feel bad in part for Dan, as he was was frozen in place after the loss of his lover Justin. It was why he was on the fence when he was propositioned by Jeff and Evan.
    I liked Chris, Justin & Dan's bff, as he was a great sounding board. I just wanted things to happened much faster.

    Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth - nothing is more important. Until a chance encounter with a tiny female sets fire to his blood, brings him to his knees and turns his world upside down. Ava Brisbane is more than he bargained for in a mate - beautiful, fragile...human.

    Story

    This narrator does a good job with this book. Clearly this couple has great chemistry, but the sex was excessive. It was so much that I was getting annoyed.
    The narrator did a good job differentiating the various creatures and humans that I had no trouble following even though I was cleaning the house. There is a really interesting story and creative world, but it’s getting lost by the constant sex scenes. I enjoyed the writing but I am familiar with this author as I have read other series by her. So I suspected that I would like this one. I appreciate the fact that this series is different from Rhiannon’s Law and the Desire of the Otherworld series.

    The characters were also entertaining as Diskant displayed usual shifter possessiveness, without being overbearing. He was also a playful shifter which gave Ava room to be witty with him. Ava’s independence will serve her as I know her brother will be a force in the next book. She has proven that she is no wilting flower, so she will be a good partner to Diskant as the Shepherds continue with their agenda.

    I want to listen book 2 but I really hope there is more story and less claiming.
