    Rescued from sexual slavery by a mysterious Pakistani officer, Caleb carries the weight of a debt that must be paid in blood. The road has been long and fraught with uncertainty, but for Caleb and Livvie, it's all coming to an end. Can he surrender the woman he loves for the sake of vengeance? Or will he make the ultimate sacrifice?

    Story

    I can't help it, I loved this creepy, grotesque, revolting book! Intense is too mild a word to describe this story. Fifty Shades is playtime compared to this. Like Fifty this book is the evolution of Caleb from the dark to the light and it really works. Violent and very explicit sex scenes here...not for the squeamish!

    Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirotis London's rising star. And who better to benefit from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in the ton, the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the future duchess' patronage means prestige and fortune for Marcelline and her sisters. To get to the lady, though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose standards are as high as his morals are...not. The prize seems well worth the risk-but this time Marcelline's met her match.

    A story of love at first sight and the long, suffering journey to get it! This story is so well written I could see every lace, ribbon and bow on the dresses created by the dressmaker. Three sisters, each with their own skill survive the world of the royals. They are talented, witty and sly and I admired them and cheered for their success! Great historical listen with a narrator that is smooth as silk!

    Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they'd become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their 16-year-old son, Adam, has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate, Spencer Hill they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: "Just stay quiet and all safe."

    Meanwhile, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death...and he wasn't alone.

    The Mackenzies gather for a clan Christmas and Hogmanay in Scotland. In the chaos of preparations for the celebration - the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life - one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the hour Eleanor's baby will arrive, to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match, to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe.

    It was a nice update on the lives of the Mackenzies! I still love Ian the best! The 4 Mackenzie brothers are well and in love and making families and many new characters have been introduced. I really like this narrator and recognize all the characters the moment she starts reading! I had fun listening!

    For Mary Sullivan Christmas is, and always has been, about family. And this year is no different. As she awaits the arrival of her eight children and their partners at the cottage in Lake Tahoe, she hangs the ornaments that they made for her over the years. Each decoration brings with it a tide of memories, all of which she holds dear to her heart. But when she comes across the oldest ornament, the one her beloved husband, Jack, gave her on their very first Christmas together, Mary is immediately swept back.

    I like the Sullivan series so it was nice learning about the parents start. This goes from when they meet to the marriage which is like a month! This listen is sedate compared to the others in the sex department and it was sad knowing that Jack dies young. The narrator as always was great!

    It could have been just any night, and they could have just been any two brothers - but it wasn't, and they weren't. The scene is an Atlanta bar. The music is loud and the dance floor is packed. The good-looking brother picks up a girl. But when dark deeds ensue out in the parking lot, what happens next can only be described in two words: vintage Slaughter. From the opening scene to the last line, "Thorn in My Side" is as wicked as it is entertaining.

    In the latest story of the Elder Races, two mates face their deadliest challenge yet-each other… Pia and Dragos's magical young son Liam (the Peanut), is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if that isn't enough, he is also exhibiting new, and unpredictable, magical gifts. To protect him, the concerned parents decide to move to upstate New York. Both Dragos and Pia relish the idea of leaving behind the city. They finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety.

    If you have listened to Thea Harrison's The Elder Races series then you will want to listen to this short about Dragos and Pia. I suspect most fans already have. If you haven't tried it start with book 1, you will love it! Sophie Eastlake will always be Dragos in my mind, she does an excellent job with all the characters in this series!

    Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart - and her virginity - to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's stepbrother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten. She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious - her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger as Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands.

    Now that Tatiana Sokolov is narrating this story, I look forward to the rest of the series! She is great and narrates the Undeniable series. This story was more biker, trouble, sex and drinking, but more realistic than other biker series. I enjoyed it!

    Former small-town girl Amery Hardwick is living her dream as a graphic designer in Denver, Colorado. She's focused on building her business, which leaves little time for dating - not that she needs a romantic entanglement to fulfill her. When her friend signs up for a self-defense class as part of her recovery after an attack, Amery joins her for support. That's where she meets him. Ronin Black, owner of the dojo, is so drawn to Amery that he takes over her training - in public and in private. The enigmatic Ronin pushes Amery's boundaries from the start, and with each new tryst, Amery becomes addicted to the pleasure and to him.

    This story was....no words to describe except...ew!, eyerolling!, silly!, never happening! It was just over the top how this dominant male wooed his female. I rolled my eyes so many times. The story without the sex was not bad but there was very little of it, I may listen to #2....if it is free! The narrator was not bad with what she had to work with.
