    Dougal Kincaid has something to prove. After being injured in a battle with the Malcontents, he's ready for active duty protecting unsuspecting mortals from these villainous vampires who want to rule the world. But first he has to get control of himself...because just the sight of a certain lovely doctor has his injured hand doing some peculiar things, not to mention the sizzling sensation that burns along his dragon tattoo....

    This book was sad, sexy, happy and such a great read. Sparks keeps getting better and better with each book in this series.

    The world she has cultivated over the years is believable and steady. It has not veered far off form its beginnings and I love the books for that. I very much look forward to reading about Zoltan in the next book.

    Some of the Narrators chosen for the Love At Stake books have been hit and miss. This was definitely a hit! I had no problems knowing who was talking. Good story and good narrator makes a great listen!

    In a future world, vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.... Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.

    Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked - and given the ultimate choice. Die or become one of the monsters.

    The worlds that Julie create are exquisitely layered and complex. It is easy to forget where you are now and get completely lost in the stories. Julie has outdone herself in The Immortal Rules and should be at the top of your must read list this summer.

When she finds herself across the boardroom table from him, there's suddenly more at stake than just her career.

    I've got one word for you...Hot!

    I jumped into this book after reading one that had my head shaking and disappointment welling.

    It's hard to find a good short read with some power to it. More often than not, if an audio book is under 5 hours it just leaves you feeling like there's something missing. I've read two of Jayne Rylon's short books now and I have been pleased with them both. I spent just about 3 1/2 hours on this book and I feel fully satisfied.

    Dana's job title is scientist not babysitter. She's irritated when her boss slates her to accompany department bad boys Christopher and Jason to a meeting in London on her weekend off. Since her job transfer to England, she's hidden her attraction to the much younger men. Unfortunately, the attraction seems to be growing every day and every night she fantasises about them. Three days virtually alone with them will be no fantasy and might instead be an embarrassing disaster. Or not....

    Story

    Taking on he assumption that our female lead has gotten to know the guys over some time, you can buy into "Love" after less than 24 hours of them getting together. I think that Paulin should consider revamping the story. It seemed a little dated with some of the odd choices in vocabulary.

    She most certainly needs a new narrator. I use noise canceling ear buds when I listen to books and this audio book was well below sub-par. The narrator was one of the worst I've listened to. There was no voice inflections between the narrative and the characters and the "he said" and "she said" was the only way to tell who just spoke.

    Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments, splicing human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such "experiment" captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him - even if he hates her for it. Fury has never known compassion or love. He's spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. He vows to end her life but when she's finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

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

    I have always LOVED Laurann Dohner’s New Species series. It is probably my favorite book series to date. I was very excited to see it available for audio because sometimes, I just don’t have the time to set down with a book.
    I think that a better Narrator could have been chosen for this series however. Sometimes she will change her voice when it’s only a thought or feeling and you don’t know until a few words or a sentence later that the character didn’t actually say that only thought it or felt it.
    If you haven’t read the books before I would recommend reading them before listening to them with this narrator. I would have only given the books 3-4 stars based on the audio, but all except 3 of the 10 (almost 11) book series has gotten 5 stars from me. The books are a lot more passionate and exciting than this narrator can convey.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ali Ahn’s performances?

    I would get an Ali Ahn performed book if I've already read it and must have it on audio. There is room for improvement in her performances.
