    It wasn't until the death of her Gran, Adele Hale Stackhouse, that Sookie learned the secret of her own ancestry: her true grandfather was a part-human fairy. Now, for the first time, Adele's long-hidden journal reveals how she and Fintan met - and how they loved. "Love Story" by Jeanne C. Stein is one of 15 brand-new tales contained in Dead but Not Forgotten: Stories from the World of Sookie Stackhouse, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner.

    When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children - neither of which she is prepared for. Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household, both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.

    Oh so good.....I haven't listened to a bad Elder Races. Again this couple comes a very close second to Pia and Dragos and I would love to know more. The story, a little confusing at times so listen closely but very interesting and suspenseful. This is the first Gin and Oracle I have encountered and their story and talents are magical. I love Sophie in this series and would recognize every character she has performed!

    While filling the display case in her bakery, the bell over the door sounds and Tessa O'Hara looks up to see the man of her dreams. Within thirty seconds he asks her out for a beer. But after four months of dating, she discovers he's an undercover DEA agent-and he's investigating her possible role in her ex-husband's drug business. For Tess, this means their relationship is over.

    Story

    Ok, I loved Mystery Man but this one had too many baby, honey, sweetness, my boys and on and on. There was a little action near the end, otherwise no Wild Man that I could find. The narrator was a little annoying this go round, but with all the fluff words I can see why.

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    I got this on sale so I am ok but not worth a credit. It makes Federal Prison look tolerable. There were some funny moments but that's about it. I loved the narrator. I have not watched the tv show but I bet it is much better. It's just Piper's story....

    Story

    I am loving this story and these characters, this is #2 in the series and I am taking a break before beginning #3. This story is very intense and based on reviews, #3 is the same. It has been an emotional roller coaster to listen to. Just when you think things are getting better for the characters, the bottom falls out and you think you know what is coming! I am not a fan of this narrator, she squeaks, but I am invested in this story and nothing would keep me from finishing.

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

    I like the other MC series out there better, this was pretty much just a lot of sex with a little plot and storyline. The narrator was ok. I would might continue on with the series if I find one on sale, otherwise...not.

    Dragos Cuelebre is no longer the only dragon. Dragos’s son Liam Cuelebre (a.k.a. Peanut) is springing into existence, reminiscent of the first of the Elder Races who were born at the beginning of the world. At just six months of age, he has already grown to the size of a large five-year-old boy. He can read, write in complete sentences, and his math skills are off the chart. A white dragon in his Wyr form, Liam also holds more power than almost anyone else.

    Through their innocent correspondence, a lonely young wife grows to love an imaginary man thousands of miles away. But when he returns to England from India, her idea of reality is turned upside down. Drawn from a safe world of tea and parlor chat into madness and mystery, she cannot find her own cherished Robert in the frightening stranger who claims her love. Laura Kinsale personally chose the exceptional talent of Nicholas Boulton to voice her favorite heroine, sweet, witty Folie with her ferret, Toot.

Still, she can't help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has - however fleeting their affair is destined to be.

    Not as good as #1, it felt rushed. The underlying story is good but barely brought up in this sequel. Lots of quick, fast and hard, with a thank-you at the end! I am interested to listen to more about the creepy villian so I will probably continue on.

    When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind. Reality is much worse: A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude.
