    The winds of fate have blown cruelly on a family that once had it all: money, power, prestige. The lives of three beautiful daughters were forever changed when, on a sultry night in Midnight, Alabama, a murder-suicide shattered the Wilde family. The girls grew up to live separate lives but now have returned home, each to face a danger no one can see coming. Former homecoming queen Samantha surprised everyone by going into law enforcement, but beneath her tough facade lies a wary heart.

    Story

    This sequel features Samantha Wilde “Sammie”, the romantic sister in the Wilde triplets and follows her journey to love. Samantha was a detective in Atlanta, who quit her job and returned to Midnight, Alabama, when she had a bad break up with her boyfriend, Dr. Quinn Braddock, and at the same time, found out that her parent’s murder suicide was actually a double homicide and the killer was after her sister Savannah.

    After the discovery of the truth behind their parent’s murder, the Wilde Sisters, Savannah, Samantha and Sabrina decided to join forces and form a Private Investigation business. Four months into their new venture, Quinn comes to town, hoping to reconcile with Sammie. He felt that their feelings were unresolved, and wanted another chance of a life together. The problem plaguing them was that Quinn had sworn off marriage after having a disastrous marriage complete with a cheating ex-wife whose murder had been blamed on him. Plus, he had grown up in a loveless family with two alcoholic parents, and a brother with mental illness. Savannah, on the other hand, had grown up in a close knit family and wanted the complete fairy tale. How can either give up their position and still be happy?

    As Quinn and Savannah try to resolve their relationship issues, a gruesome murder occurs in Midnight mirroring Quinn’s ex-wife’s murder. It quickly throws suspicion on the newly arrived Quinn, as he is a stranger in Midnight. Samantha is resolute in her belief in Quinn’s innocence, but the Midnight locals are clearly uneasy as they wonder if they have a serial killer in their midst. Savannah and Quinn are no longer just trying to save their relationship, but their lives.

    This book was just as good as the first one, though I felt that Sammie was willing to settle a lot more than Savvy was. The writing was intriguing, the plot was well laid and the sisters were tight as ever. I was excited that I figured out the killer early on but I woldn't say the story predictable. It was very suspenseful and entertaining.

    the author set up book 3 nicely, so I look forward to Bri's book.

    This book and series was an utter disappointment. It was needlessly sad and depressing. Pain drawn out over 3 books and just stretched out. There is no reason for this much gloom and I felt bad for Evan and Sarah because the umbrella of pain covered them as well.

    Lady Philippa Marbury is...odd. The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest - 14 days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.

    Story

    This book was way better than book 1. It definitely rescued this series for me.

    Lady Philippa "Pippa" Marbury is the fourth daughter of the Marguess of Needham and Dolby. She doesn't believe in luck and she believes in scientific explanations for everything. Logic and Truth always wins out in Pippa's world.

    She is engaged to the Lord Castleton but decided she wanted to do research on what is necessary to be a proper wife. Pippa deals with her nerves by gathering knowledge so she can feel prepared. She decides to go to the most notorious gaming hall in London, The Fallen Angel, because the owner Jasper Cross is notorious rake.
    Pippa asks him to help her with her research on how to please her fiancee as a wife, and thus opening up a pandora's box with Cross.

    Cross wasn't nobility but he seemed to be the only one in London who didn't find Pippa to be a nerd, geek or odd. He actually enjoyed engaging her in discussion but he couldn't offer her a life like she could have with Lord Castleton.

    What I loved about this one was Pippa's honesty, her strength, her resolve and her curiosity about everything. She made being smart look fun, not odd. I chuckled at her a number of times. She said things people were afraid to say, she was a really good heroine.

    Jasper finally met his match and she kept him honest. I liked this story much more than the Pippa's sister in book 1. I look forward to book 3.

    Interior decorator Suzanne Barron's new tenant is the most dangerously sexy man she's ever met. Navy Commander John Huntington, a former SEAL (aka 'Midnight Man') works best under cover of darkness. Within hours of meeting him, Suzanne has wild, no-holds barred sex with John, then panics at the depth of her passionate response to such a powerful and dangerous warrior. Suzanne doesn't do sex like that. John is definitely someone she needs to avoid for her own peace of mind. But when killers come for her, Suzanne knows she can turn to only one man.

    Alexander Roman wants nothing to do with the controlling rulers of his vampire breed or the family he escaped from a hundred years ago. But as a new threat to the pureblood vampires emerges, Alexander's ties to the past are forced upon him again, and without warning, he finds himself - disoriented, terrified, and near death - at the door of a stranger. Dr. Sara Donahue is dedicated to removing the traumatic memories of her patients - like those of the stranger at her front door.

    Story

    I think Tavia Gilbert did a good job, her voice is much better suited for his series than Night Huntress. I am intrigued by Lucian and Browyn, but I see I will have to wait to book 3 to get sanctification.

    Alexander Roman was out hunting blood when the Dawn approached rapidly. He found himself trapped and managed to crawl up the steps to a random person's house before passing out.

    Dr. Sara Donohue came back from her shift at the hospital to find a man in front of her house. She dragged him inside and quickly found herself facing one of her former patients who was stalking her. As the stalker tried to kidnap her, Alex recovered enough to save her.

    This incident catapulted Sara into the battle between pure and impure blooded vampires.

    This book was definitely okay, but it suffered from all the usual issues you expect from 1st in series. I like that it had all the cliche stuff like flying vampires, wiping memories but it had a little different twist with the vampire communities that sounded like cults. The writing was okay as well, I wasn't blown away by the characters or the world building, but I entertained enough to keeping listening to it. I will continue this one

    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

    Thank you Robert Petkoff for nailing the narration and keeping me listening even when I have other things to do. This series has become a Top 5 series for me. WOW. I would have never believed it as i could barely finish the first couple of books in this series.

    In this series, we meet demon Malkom Slaine who has been dealt a pretty crappy hand by life. He doesn't know his father and his mother was whore who sold to to be a blood whore to vampires when he was a little boy. He has been used and abused all his life until he met his best friend Kallen, the King. Kallen gave Malkom a sense of belonging and a mission until they were betrayed and taken by vampires. Malkolm swore revenge on all those who held him captive and those betrayed him.

    Carrow Graie, a witch, was sent to retrieve Malkolm by the human Order that kidnapped her, in exchange for his adoptee Ruby. Carrow has also had a crappy family life as she never really mattered to her parents. they treated her like she was invisible so now she has been living a life starved for love. When these two came in contact, Malkolm's heart started beating--she was his mate. Carrow knew Malkolm would help her, but could she betray him and return him into captivity? Would Malkolm forgive her betrayal?

    this was like a beauty and the beast story because Malkolm started off as a beast...a sweet, but angry and protective beast. I find the stories where Kresley Cole gives us lykae and demons are just the best. They are sweet, funny, sad, high in action and just weaved together well.

    Malkolm has been added to my list of favorite Heroes and has Carrow. They made a really sweet pair. I can't wait to read the next one in this series

    What does it take to rise from life's depths, swim against the current, and breathe? Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn't expect - an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own.

    Story

    This audiobook felt like it took forever. I couldn't wait for it to be over. While the narration was okay, the story was just awful. I am hard pressed to find 2 main characters that I wished went their separate ways at the end of the book. I didn't buy into their relationship at all. What a disappointing book to listen to after Flat out love.

    Blythe McGuire is going through the motion of college, trying her best not to let her depression get the best of her. Blythe and her brother James lost their parents in a tragedy and the loss threw her in a tailspin.

    Blythe's senior year she met Christopher Shepherd, a guy who seemed to understand and share her pain. Chris also lost his mother in a tragic accident and these two lonely hearts connected...or so Blythe thought.
    See Chris told Blythe he doesn't do relationships, and Blythe thought she could handle the friends with benefits. But feelings emerged as they often do in these types of relationships. What will Blythe do when she knows Christopher isn't the "settling down" type?

    My issue with this book was that Blythe was (besides being generally pathetic) emotionally all over the place. First of all, Blythe would tell Chris she wasn't looking for a boyfriend or a commitment, but in the next sentence, she would say that her and Chris are so connected. Blythe said she didn't believe in marriage, next breath Chris and my time will come. She was just so emotionally unstable. I felt like she couldn't tell lust from love.
    Christopher was such a douchebag. He was a liar and a cheat, his reasons just were not good enough for his behavior.
    Blythe's chasing after someone who was supposed to be a friend and treated her so callously, when she claimed she had grown stronger just perplexed me. He was just a user and bad guy to me. A lot of people had abusive parents but they don't treat people and lie by omission like he did. His behavior was appalling and disrespectful of a friendship.

    I am so thankful I read Flat Out Love, Flat out Matt or I would have thought this author was a mediocre writer. Her characters in this book were not developed well and hard to like. I was truly disappointed with this one.

    Lady Aline Marsden was brought up for one reason: to make an advantageous marriage to a member of her own class. Instead, she willingly gave her innocence to John McKenna, a servant on her father’s estate. Their passionate transgression was unforgivable - John was sent away, and Aline was left to live in the countryside - an exile from London society - and he took her love. Now McKenna has made his fortune, and he has returned - more boldly handsome and more mesmerizing than before.

    Story

    Lady Aline Marsden made an inexcusable faux pas; she fell in love with the help, John McKenna. Even though they grew up together, Aline was the daughter of the Westcliff, while McKenna was a bastard and stable boy at the Westcliff estate. When Aline’s father found out about the affair, he threatened to ruin McKenna, but Aline convinced her father that she would get rid of McKenna.

    Twelve years later, Aline and her sister Olivia live with their older brother Marcus, the current Lord of Westcliff. McKenna and his business partner Gideon Shaw came to town for a business deal. It became clear that business wasn’t the only purpose for McKenna’s visit. Would Aline and McKenna get a second chance?

    Even though this was Aline’s story, it was also her sister Olivia’s story. Olivia and Aline were victims of indiscretions that tainted them in the eyes of the ton. However, with the support of their loving brother Marcus, the two ladies were very close and surprising resilient. But love has a way of forcing one to confront and deal with one’s vulnerabilities. Aline and Olivia had to fight to get a second chance at happiness.

    Other than the Westcliff name and a mention of Harry Rutledge, this book didn’t quite feel like a Wallflower book, but it was as enjoyable as the other Lisa Kleyaps HRs. I was really reminded of all the shallowness and vanity that rule the ton. I was also reminded that love can still survive a decade of separation. I just can’t help wondering what the couples would have done if America (New York City) wasn’t an option for residence. Was their love strong enough for them to face the ton daily?

    I LOVED IT. What an awesome audiobook! Robert Petkoff was on it again! His various voices really kept each character entertaining! I don't think I can go back to reading this series on my kindle.

    Sometimes the timeline with this series throw me off, but the events of this book coincided with A Hunger Like No Other. This one was a lykae lead, not demon nor vampire.
    My two favorite books featured Lykae, Bowen & Garreth.

    In this book Garreth was playing rugby with other supernatural creatures when he scented Lucia, his female. The one had been searching all over for. He quickly followed her scent until he was able to really behold her. She was an archer, the best archer in the lore, but she had taken a vow of chasity. There was a true dilemma because Lykae had to claim their mates and during the coupling, they had to bite and mark their mates. Lucia's excellence in archery came with a price from a god--if she had sex, she would lose her ability. So Garreth set off to prove to Lucia being with him, was worth more than her skill as the #1 Archer.

    What Garreth didn't know was that Lucia had other secrets that she was hiding and they were just as big as her gift with the bow & arrow.

    These two were hot, they were sweet, they just worked. Garreth was everything someone like Lucia needed or could want. He was unbelieveably patient with her, he was protective and he was sweet. He put her desires and needs above his own in all things. Wow. I loved how he labored to gain her trust and the fact that never took advantage of it. He was good to her and they made a great team.

    I am surprised that I am 10 books into this series and I am enjoying each book more and more. Really great series
