    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I normally don’t read science Fiction but took a chance on this one---I couldn’t put it down. It had a way of drawing you back. Well written and preformed. Most importantly the thoughts behind it were different--somewhat predictable but it didn’t hurt the story. A good read.

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    This is the first Tiffinie Helmer book I've read. I've been tempted to read others but most of her books are short-novella length. I like a story that has time to let you know the character and you can sink your teeth into it. That is why I chose Shiver. Love stories based in Alaska, love the history and the wilderness aspect. This story will give you all of the above. Good character development, good storyline based in Alaska. Please we need more of this length novel. Even though your short stories are cute and would have had a great possibility as a longer novel they just don't feed the need of a true reader. We need more. I am will to buy and read them when you write them.

From the moment she arrives, however, her problems only intensify. She's being stalked, but by whom? Is he real or only a figment of her imagination?

    Melissa Mayhue you are a writer I look up to. I have enjoyed reading both books(1&2). I thought your stories are ones I will remember and want to read again. Heartwarming love story, adventure filled and the Fae's magic--how could anyone resist. I am addicted and need my next book--please say it's soon. Forgot to mention- Narrator, Elizabeth Wiley, did an excellent job. Your story became alive with her abilities.

    As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett's secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city's unearthly underworld.

    I had to get Book 3---SO HAPPY I DID--great flow of story line and new action to spice up the story. Great imagination---time well spend and I really have enjoyed the reading/ listening.

    Now for your narrator--Amy McFadden--excellent choice--you are doing a great job!

    When LA’s vampires, witches, and werewolves make a mess, they call Scarlett Bernard to clean it up. Her ability as a null erases all magical traces from anything — or anyone — that comes within ten feet of her, and keeps humans in the dark about the city’s paranormal activity. One night when she’s called to a grisly crime scene, Scarlett is spied by the all-too-human LAPD cop Jesse Cruz, who strikes up a deal with her: he’ll keep quiet about the supernatural underworld if she helps him crack the case. She agrees, but the city’s chief vampire, Dash, starts to suspect Scarlett is behind the murders and will reveal all she knows of his shadowy empire. Now it’ll take more than Scarlett’s unique abilities to clear her name, keep the underworld underground, and track down the real killer.

    Born into mystery. Shackled to darkness.... Khara has spent centuries discovering everything about the Underworld―except her place in it. But when she's ripped from her home, solving the riddle of her origins becomes more important than ever. With evil stalking her through the dark alleys of Detroit, she finds salvation from an unlikely source: a group of immortal warriors sworn to protect the city. Khara needs their help to unravel the tangled secrets of who and what she is—secrets many seem willing to kill for. But time is running out, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer necessity binds her to an arrogant fallen angel. Can their shaky alliance withstand that which threatens her, or will her soul fall victim to the unholy forces that hunt her―those that seek the Unborn? From the author of the bestselling Caged series comes a pulse-pounding new series of supernatural romance.

    I took this book on a whim--I was not disappointed. The story was compelling, and well structured. Every step in the story pulls you to the next. Characters are interesting, and hold your interest to want to learn more. It is not my normal choice of books, but I'm so happy I did read it. Now I need Book 2.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    I have read and enjoyed the Iron Druid Chronicles. But to be honest the story was not connecting as I wanted it to. Yes I'm the reader and require my stories to flow. I started to see each book as another romp with only some characters to be constant. Well I must say thank you. "Shattered" is the glue that holds the tales together. It brought things together to make sense--even to Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid himself. I can not wait until book 8 to see where they will go from here. Love the new character, Owen Kennedy,very colorful. And Granuaile has helped the story since she was added.
