    Charlie Howard travels the globe writing suspense novels for a living. To supplement his income - and keep his hand in - Charlie has a small side business: stealing for a very discreet clientele on commission. When a mysterious American offers Charlie 20,000 euros to steal two small monkey figurines to match the one he already has, Charlie is suspicious; the job seems too good to be true, and of course, it is. He soon finds the American beaten nearly to death, while the third figurine has disappeared.

    What fun! and a masterful narration job by Simon Vance. Already read the second installment and laughed out loud so many times. Chris Ewan is witty, funny and with great british self-deprecation that I so adore about that culture and oh go ahead and throw in a smudge of JD Salinger while your at it. Worth a list if you like to smile.

    Lissa's life as a vampire begins on the day her husband is removed from life support. Turned by rogues who wager her life, Lissa is running from her maker who is determined to kill her, hunted by the Council who has branded her a rogue and blackmailed by werewolves, who utilize her newly developed talents for their own gain.

    Story

    Excellent and clever story and I could not put it down. Older woman who loses her husband gets illegally turned into a vampire as a major surprise to the mostly male vampire community. She has to find out what she while using her wits to survive. Very surprising story line with many characters including a few werewolves for good measure - the plot has a number of intriguing turns that are not too hard to follow and totally worth a listen. I got hooked on a whim and ended reading everything Connie has written. I am now an officially addicted fan! The reader is quite good and keeps you involved in the story.

    The New York Times best-selling author of The Six Wives of Henry VIII and The War of the Roses, historian Alison Weir crafts fascinating portraits of England’s infamous House of Tudor line. Here Weir focuses on Elizabeth I, also known as the Virgin Queen, who ascended to the throne at age 25 and never married, yet ruled for 44 years and steered England into its Golden Age.

    Story

    If you liked the movies featuring Elizabeth I, starring Cate Blanchette, who gives a stellar performance, they you will totally appreciate getting the "true story". I was amazed at how the producers of that film simply took full editorial license, rewrote history and loaded it with a host of major inaccuracies! Shame on them! It was great to have such an established historian deliver robust research, yet presented in such a very entertaining way and combined with Davina Porter reading it (she also reads the Outlander series which is also terrific), Devina brings the characters and their quotes to life which, if you read this book, may seem a tad dry, but Devina injects life into Elizabeth's story and makes the characters and their challenges feel so very real. Thanks to both Alison Wier and Davina - an excellent combination. I am richer for having heard Elizabeth's story. On completion of this story, I wished that every young girl could know more about such a clever leader. This is just a must read and must listen if you are a fan of history. By the way, just before this book, I finished listening to Debrah Harness books in the All Souls Trilogy (Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night), the latter has the key characters back in time in Elizabethan England. So much fun to go back and forth to see how the author pulls from the true history and weaves real details into her paranormal book. If you enjoyed the Harkness books, you will appreciate learning the true story of that time in history.Enjoy!

    Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: She's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro - one of the dead-channeling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desperate measures. Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls.

    Story

    Jim Frangione who reads for JR Ward books is dreamy in this very good story. Necromancers, Witches, Psychics and a likable macho detective make for a great mystery. If you like JR Ward you should very much like this new series. It has a similar vibe but its got a very different world build that is well done. Its takes a few chapters to get into the story but stick with it - it gets very meaty. Makes me wish it was a movie. Standby, its good enough to be a strong visual story if it gets picked up.

    Sometimes the only way to love - and redemption - is to make a deal with the devil. After the death of her parents, Lady Aurora de Marquise is left with no illusions. Stripped of her birthright and betrayed by her uncle, escape is her only option. With her life on the line, she narrowly avoids another murder attempt - only to run headlong into Lord Brigham de Mornay, a man most consider a monster. With her uncle's henchmen nipping at her heels, Aurora knows better than to trust a stranger - especially one as compelling as Brigham.

    Started out interesting but fell flat after the first half of the book. Nice narration by Sue Pitkin but even she could not save this story overall. After hearing the expression "God's Teeth!" for the 30th time, I almost had to jump to a different book. Not recommended unless you happen to enjoy a very slow story. If you enjoy historical romance read Diana Gabaldon and start with Outlander - simply amazing.

    For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters—a pleasant position, with one caveat. Her charges’ older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response—and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.

    For vampire Aidan Murphy, life has never been so desperate. The vaccine used to treat a global pandemic has rendered human blood deadly to his kind, leaving them on the brink of starvation and civil war. In tiny Penton, Alabama, Aidan establishes a peaceful community of vampires and unvaccinated human donors. He dares to hope they can survive - until his estranged brother descends upon Penton and begins killing the humans. Determined to save his town, Aidan kidnaps an unsuspecting human.

    Susannah spins an intriguing tale with strong character development that is highly entertaining. Also, the narrator, Angela Dawe, does an excellent job with the range of people. Living in a world where most humans have been vaccinated against a pandemic, it turns out that this is fatal for vampires. To answer this challenge, one vampire creates a utopia in Penton, AL with unvaccinated humans that he rescues from across the country and supports them through rehabs and other limiting life situations, then gives them the option to live in a small town with a positive supported community in exchange for blood.Top this off with a vampire national government that does not like this idea and other vampires that are attracted to building the community you have intrigue a strong love story all woven into a fast paced fun story. worth a credit? Totally!

    "All it would take was my true name being mentioned after dark, and it would float back to my aunt. She was the Queen of Air and Darkness, and that meant that anything said in the dark was hers to hear, eventually. The fact that spotting the missing Elven American Princess had become more popular than spotting Elvis helped."

    Yes, there are a good bit of erotic scenes but is weaved as a relevant part of the story so if you are not comfortable with this then this story is not for you. But Laurell weaves a fantastic story - vivid characters come alive with very creative characters and scenes and the narrator totally brings it home. I could barely put it down. A really fun listen for P/R fans - totally worth a credit!

    This Christmas isn't so merry for Toni. Her best friend's been locked up in a mental hospital ever since she told the police she was attacked by vampires, and the only way for Toni to get her out is to prove that bloodsuckers really do exist. So she's taken a job as a bodyguard for the Undead, but she gets more than she bargained for, especially when she meets Ian MacPhie, a Scottish rascal looking for Ms. Right.

    Story

    Liked the story a good bit but in a way, I now wish I had read it. The reader, Coleen Marlo, is very talented and solid however her accent of a Scotsman is truly wanting. It just does not work. I had to stop a few times slightly annoyed as Coleen goes totally out of character a good number of times and the editors missed a lot of mistakes where she goes out of accent and just marginally ok. Half the fun of Audible for me is to listen to the talented theatrics of a dynamic reader. If that is important to you - suggest you read this one. Also, if you adore great readers try Roslyn Landor(reading Lisa Kleypas books or others) or Jim Frangione (black dagger brotherhood series - outstanding) - just no, no no comparison.

    Kerrelyn is very talented - some fun stories - would love to hear her books with another reader. Coleen is too - just not for a sexy Scotsman.
