    I REALLY enjoyed this series!

    I wasn't really thrilled with the idea of this book when I had read the reviews and read that the last story was man in love with a man story. I'm not into those types of stories, but I purchased it any way and I am so glad I did!

    Let me say that even though the last story is man on man, it is more of a love story than anything else. Yes there is man on man sex, but it was the first one that I actually really listened to and was greatly glad that I did. While that type of thing still won't float my boat, this one was done in such a way as to be appealing even to the straight crowd!

    I say give it a chance! There are three stories here, they are all connected to each other but will each stand alone. And if you don't find you like one, there are still two more excellent stories to listen to that are well worth it!

    He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart - until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland.

    I bought this book because it was on sale and I had enough to buy the book with a cash credit. I wasn't sure at first if I would really like this book because it is not of my normal genres that I listen to. But I do love a good Scotland Warrior in a kilt... honestly what woman doesn't? So I gave it a try not expecting much.... it was on sale after all.

    Boy was I surprised to find that I absolutely LOVED it! I loved it enough that the rest of the series is now either in my cart or my wish list to spend my monthly credits on!

    I had read all the reviews and was a bit worried about the narration because of them but I found him to be an easy listen for a male reader. This man has a "purr" to his voice that is very exotic and intriguing.

    If you are looking for a fun, easy, yet riveting listen, this one is great!

    Nothing incites Marcus more than the primal hunger roused by his former fiancée, Elizabeth. It’s been years since she jilted him for another man, but that only means there’s a lot to catch up on, a lot to make up for, and that he’s going to enjoy every sweet moment.… The same drive and passion that sent her into another man’s arms is what brings Elizabeth back to Marcus. Her attraction to him is the one thing she fears, but she’s run out of options. Resisting is impossible. But does she have the courage to surrender everything?

    I was a bit worried about getting this book after reading a few of the reviews, but I am VERY glad I didn't listen!

    While a few people go on and on about a supposed "rape" scene, I didn't see it that way. It is very BDSM in that sense, but I was in no way offended by the supposed scene and found it no way distracting from the story. Quite the opposite really. It goes from BDSM into a love story.

    If you are open minded and looking for a good listen, this is a good one. I know I really enjoyed it!

    While I REALLY enjoyed this story, I was HIGHLY disappointed to hear it as the first story in a 3 story compilation I also purchased the same day!!!

    You can get this SAME, FULL story by purchasing Hot in Handcuffs: Three Novellas of Sensual Capture.

    I really wish I would have realized this myself before I spent my credits on both of these books thinking I was getting the SAME thing.

    Now, don't think for a single minute that I am in ANY way putting down this book! It was GREAT! I loved it and wish it would have been longer if anything.

    I just wish I would have realized I purchased the same thing twice on the same day!

    Would you listen to Surrender to Me again? Why?

    I have listened to this book a few times already! I love it! So far I would say it is the best in the series!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hunter!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I know this may sound weird, but I loved the scene where Hunter is leaving to return to active duty believing that he will be divorced by the time he returns (or I should say IF since he is sure he isn't going to return alive) to the US. The lengths he goes to in order to make sure that Kata is taken care regardless just goes to show that you can be a bad ass and still speak love with your every action!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really hated to see this book come to end, but the ending itself is awesome! I laughed, cried, got mad, got upset, and of course got turned on!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep this series coming!

    Seventeen-year-old Lorelei Patio is the adopted daughter of 200-year-old vampire Sergio Patio. She never realized why her family has had to move so often or why she is not permitted to get too friendly with other young people. In fact, except for one shocking moment that seemed more like a dream, Lorelei never fully realized who and what her father was nor what her sisters were brought up to do for him. But one day, that all changed.

    If you could sum up Daughter of Darkness in three words, what would they be?

    Surprisingly Great Read!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Daughter of Darkness?

    This whole book was great, I can't think of just "one" moment that I would mark as the "most memorable"


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This reader did a very good job with the whole performance, I was pleasantly surprised.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened to this book in one sitting! I could not turn it off! And then I listened to it again!


    Any additional comments?

    I do hope they continue making the rest of this series into audible form! I keep checking but so far, no luck.

    How can a virgin seeking happily ever after with a hot pop star who has a penchant for threesomes win her fantasy man? Kimber Edgington desperately needs a plan to convince Jesse McCall, who's been her friend and secret crush since they spent a summer together as teenagers, that they are meant for each other. But all the tabloid stories about his sexual escapades make her feel oh so inadequate.

I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this novel, but it left me wanting MORE!

    I really do hope they intend on doing the other two books in this series as audible books! I know I will gladly line up to spend my credits on them!

    While the ending of the book sort of left you hanging and wanting to know more, there was so much more than just good sex in this book! Having never read/listened to anything by Sylvia Day before, I am very glad that I took the chance and listened to this one! Well worth the credit and then some!

    It took me so long to decide to buy these books because I let the reviews scare me away. I really kick myself for that!

    I am so glad I finally broke down and decided to make up my own mind on these books. I think they are great! I will admit that I am hooked and a huge fan now. I'm waiting for MORE!

    Please don't let others who are seeking a literary masterpiece that is obscure and poetic keep you from giving these books a try. Yes, they are graphic and erotic, but in a sense they are very tame. Don't be afraid to try your own wild side out by listening to the adventures of Christian and Anastasia. They are a real, modern, love story that will be around for a very long time!

    When a stalker ratchets up his attempts to get to her, cable sex-talk-show host Morgan O'Malley turns to Jack Cole - a self-proclaimed dominant - for help. Though Jack is a bodyguard, Morgan feels anything but safe in his presence. Because slowly and seductively, Jack is bringing her deepest fantasies to the surface. And when he bends her to his will, what's more shocking than her surrender is how much she enjoys it and how she starts to crave his masterful touch.

    I was going through Fifty Shades withdrawal, no new books from authors I know I love and cherish, so I was just searching through recommendations on My Listener Page when I read a few reviews for this series. Finding a good erotica book that has a story to it and is well written is hard to do so I was half way expecting to be returning the book.

    I must say that I will NOT be returning and in fact have turned around and bought the second book in the series as soon as the first one finished playing! I am hooked and I do hope there are more books in the series coming along.

    Being as I came to listen to the book with no real expectations, I can not tell you how pleased I am that I listened to the recommendations of others.... not something that I usually do since most of the books I've come to love get very mixed reviews.

    I won't give away anything of the story other than to say that if you are going through Fifty Shades of Withdrawal, this book will heat you up and more than cure any withdrawal symptoms you may be facing! I know it MORE than worked for me!
