    Lynn has create a set of characters that are interesting and meld together. Her situations have a twist and you are never sure where she is going with the story. Her prose rivals Kenyon's and her characters are interesting and stimulating. I have read her first set of books in this group and this continuation builds on them.

    Hallie has never run so fast in her life. One of the frightening sky warriors from the warship Valiant is hot on her heels and intent on capturing her as his bride. He takes her down, places his collar around her neck. With one word, he claims her. Mine. Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent years rising through the ranks. Hallie is his reward, the beautiful sprite ensnaring him with a glance. Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth.

    I listened to the story without a break. Good to the last word. Lolita has created a new world with great guys. The story line is plausible and interesting in itself and her relationships are fun. Lolita explores complicated feelings and desires. I am looking forward to her next installment.

    Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment, one of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the "mating frenzy" locks them into a battle of sexual heat they cannot escape. The evil Genetics Council is hot on their trail. Leaving a trail of their own of deception and blood. Callan will use his strength to try to save them both...and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.

    Story

    As the first book in the series, it does fill in the background on the first breeds. This story is a good beginning with heat and solid storyline. Lori makes her characters real with real situations in an unreal fantasy. Callan has the air of authority needed to carry the series and be leader of the pack. Keeping the intensity of the story is difficult and Lori seems to have achieved that in this book. Greater insight into the breeding program and the evil characters in the background would have made the book more interesting but it still is a good read. The relationship of the couple is well laid out and central to the story. I have read all of the series available so far and look forward to the books that fill in the gaps. I like the fact that each book stands alone in the relationship of each couple but the integration of the basic storyline that flows through each book. Revisiting couples throughout the series helps to make the group seem more real and allows the story to flow. Keep going.

    Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind - and none of the heart. Born a Psy, Sascha Duncan must hide the emotions that mark her as flawed. But a passionate Changeling will tempt her to reveal everything - and risk her very soul.

    Story

    Fantastic new idea!! I love the use Psy power to create difficulties for the character as it has not been over done. Nalini has created a world that is interesting and very believable. Her characters inspire emotions and captivates the reader or listener. I can hardly wait for each new installment. Slave to Sensation sets up a world for her characters to use and makes the plot original but doable. Facing the greater use of the brain with all of its inherant problems, heros and heroines alike stuggle to find the most important emotion, love.

    Blessed with great beauty and wealth, Emily Armstrong had the highest privileges that youth can bestow. But all that is behind her now. Pregnant and abandoned by the man she loved, she struggles to survive in the slums of Philadelphia after the Civil War. Vowing never to be fooled by love again, she builds a new life as the mistress of a boardinghouse, known for her morals, virtue, and strictly guarded heart. But when a traveler from out West visits for the Centennial Exhibition and checks into Emily's lodging, something stirs within her. Rugged yet ever the gentleman, this cowboy is nothing like the man who left her pregnant long ago.

    Story

    I have read a number of Robyn's books before and was pleased with the stories so I decided to try this one. The idea sounded interesting but I found the story weak and not interesting enough to finish. I will finish it eventually as I have bought it but her characters did not have a lot of personality and the story ran in circles. I was bored after the first chapter. Not Robyn's best effort.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great series! Make sure you start at the first one Born of Night. Sherrilyn Kenyon has created a world that is believable and wonderful. She creates an interesting group of characters and places them in intense situations. I have read all of her books and would recommend them to others. Changing the fact that Darling was not gay was totally covered and workable. Catching up on the lives of previous characters is great and adds to the fun.Keep up the great stories.

    Narration was good and pleasing to the ear. A few pronunciation difficulties but acceptable. Nice mellow tones and inflections.
