    As a harpy, Sentinel Aryal is accustomed to dealing with hate, but Sentinel Quentin Caeravorn manages to inspire in her a burning ire unlike anything she's ever known. Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy's incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own. To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur.

    This is book 6 of the Elder Races series, and I think it's my favorite! Dragonbound, book 1, had a special magic to it and even though the follow up books were great they didn't have that all encompassing magic of book 1, this one does!

    This is the story of Quinn, Pia's old boss and owner of Elfies pub, and newly christened sentinel of the Weir people. He's been under investigation for 2 years by Ariel the Harpy sentinel. She knows he's dirty, a law breaker, she just hasn't been able to prove it. The truth is Quinn is on the shady side of the law, it's how he has lived his life and its what he knows. He is also a total male alpha, handsome enough to get any woman he wants, and he dabbles in BDSM, but something is missing from his life he is bored.

    Ariel is on a mission to destroy Quinn, anything or anyone that threatens the Weir needs to be eliminated. The fact that Quinn is now one of the seven elite sentinels sworn to protect the Weir way if life is NOT acceptable!

    Great story, hot scenes, the heat between these two leaps off the page. I really hope we don't have to wait another year for book 7. If you haven't started this series you are truly missing out!

    For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…. The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde's Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

    I was soooo worried this book would have the second book blues, I just loved the first one so much I prepared for the disappointment...luckily I didn't have to be disappointed because this one was better than the first!

    We pick up where book 1 left off..Liz has walked out on Brady...she doesn't want to make him choose between the campaign and her so she chose for him. Now she is trying desperately to get on with her life, shouldn't be too hard, people break up all the time right? Well that is what she tells herself anyway! As she tries desperately to go on living a normal life she thinks of Brady every day, but she made her choice and now she has to live with it and TRY to build another life, a Brady free life...a new man....a new direction. But how do you build a life when your foundation is gone?

    I am LOVING this series!!! I was a bit dissapointed that we didn't even see Brady for like 3 hours but he got there eventually...and then was gone again...at that point I was with Liz, I was longing to see Brady too!!! When a book can grab you like this and has you rooting for the characters and hoping for them then you know you are into a good book!

    Have a mentioned I love this series? I am going to be so sad when this is over, but the ride has been so worth it!

    When Liz Dougherty’s first reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper finds her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. Senator Brady Maxwell may look the part with his devastating good looks and impeccable style, but his politics rub Liz the wrong way, and she’s not going to let him off easy. Liz’s hardball question catches Brady off guard and shows her editor, Hayden Lane, that she’s headed places as journalist. But to Liz’s surprise, she’s also headed for a secret, high-stakes romance with Brady Maxwell.

    Story

    It's rare I find a contemporary romantic trilogy that doesn't disappoint, well Merry Christmas to me!

    I have read books 1 and 2 now and the third is downloading but I wanted to get this review in before the weekend. The witty banter, the classy writing, the lack of made up drama, the amazing characters, I just can't say enough good things about this series! It doesn't talk down to the reader, it isn't all fluff and happily ever after and everything just magically works out, these books are raw and they feel like they could happen to people you know.

    The tagline of this book should be “Even smart women can lose their heads over a man”. I found myself empathizing with this woman, she is brilliant, has the highest academic merit scholarship you can receive, she wants to be a journalist specifically for the political arena and all her planning and all her education couldn’t stop her from falling for a guy…the ultimate WRONG GUY! He’s powerful, he’s attractive, he’s in the spotlight, and he is a sitting Senator…why not just throw a vegetarian and a butcher together, they make about as much sense! She wants to be a hardnosed reporter uncovering scandal in the political arenas, she doesn’t want to BE the scandal!

    This story holds on to you from the start, can she accept being a secret, should she even want to accept being someone’s secret? She’s smart, young, attractive…so why oh why can’t she get this guy out of her head!?!?!?!

    Great book, I really liked it, even though I wanted to throw my phone out the window at a few spots…but if you ever found yourself wilting under the power of your lovers smile you will understand this book. Sometimes everything you thought you knew gets flipped all around when the guy you have fallen for simply smiles at you.

    There isn't really a cliffhanger, no one standing over someone with an axe, but you are left with the "WHAT ....was that it? What happened next? vibe....so be prepared with book 2.

    Narrator was awesome! Sexy North Carolina accent for our deep talking leading man didn't hurt either!

    Highland warrior Blane Sutherland has one mission: disguise himself as an Englishman, cross the border, and retrieve Lady Aliah de Mowbray. Always up for a challenge, he agrees, pursuing his conquest with vigor - and trying to deny the powerful desire that eclipses him each time he touches his charge. A rogue of the highest order and a younger son, he has nothing to offer a lady but a broken heart.

    I didn't like book 1...but with sooo many highlander books out there when audible had a sale I was like yeah, okay, sure.....then I look in my library and I was like oh CRUD! The good news is, it was better than book 1....the bad news is that really isn't saying much!

    So, in book 1 fair maiden gets caught in the middle of an English Scot battle, a Scot warrior see's her comes to her aid and poof insta love.

    In book 2 the brother of the warrior is sent to retrieve the fair maiden's sister who has been left at the castle back in England. How does he do this...well he of COURSE dresses as an Englishman gets the girl and then scares the heck out of her when poof he has a kilt and a scottish burr...yeah I would have shot him too!

    This book did have humorous moments, but not enough to make up for drab ones.

He is taken by her quiet confidence and the powerful connection that sparks between them, but his duty lies at Castle Assynt, where his clan is in turmoil.

    This isn't really a stand alone read....from the first book "Charming the Shrew", we had a plot to kill the king. There was a lot of fallout from that plot which means Ailig now has to go home tell his dad that 1 brother is dead, 2 are in the service of the king for being idiots and oh yeah...Ailig has been ordered by the King to assume control of the Clan from his father IMMEDIATELY, or the Clan will have to face the consequences....lol..no big deal right?

    All in all it was a good book, nice characters that we really got to know and overall I have to say I was very pleased even though there wasn't a lot of steam to go with my brooding highlander thoughts, but still good!

    Yes, it's only $2, no idea why. It wasn't a great literary classic but it kept me wanting to listen. Our leading lady has had a tough life, and I mean tough! Forced to defend herself one day against an evil man she fled on horse to Scotland hoping to find refuge before the English soldiers found her....the evil man she fended off was a Barron, and she was a simple kitchen worker, with no right to refuse the advances of a man of his station.

    While running for her life she comes across brawny highlander men who take one look at her beaten form and pledge to protect her, after all if they didn't their moms would skin them alive!

    The story of her past unfolds and things are kind of predictable and it is a bit repetitive that the girl thinks she is ugly, and plain because she has been psychologically tortured her whole life but I say again, 12.5 hours for $2... How can you go wrong????

    When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

    The ladies sounded like ladies, the men sounded like burly highlanders, very enjoyable listen!

    The story was very good too! Our leading lady was married to a horrible "man", he used belittlement and beatings to get her submission, after 3 years of living in hell...he died, and she was free...or so she thought! The King is a horrible "man" and he thinks she has something on him so she is ordered to marry his most trusted Baron, a cruel man, and she can not and will not go through that again...her brother sweeps her away to the Highlands of Scotland and gives her to the most feared laird in the land...he's ruthless to his enemies but he's well respected and the brother has been in battle with him and finds him to be an honorable man.

    Mass chaos ensues with an English woman being wife to a Scottish Laird, but it was very amusing to listen to and left you with a good feeling of hope and happiness when all was said and done, I really liked it!

    I really liked this book, not your typical highlander story. This is the story about a Widow, granted she was Widowed at about 14 years old! Anyway, she's strong willed and eventually she returned home to her father and pretty much ran his house, even though he had a new wife and even her brothers had wives...she ran the house. Our Hero enters the story and he likes the spunk of our heroine and one thing leads to another and she is basically tricked into going back home with the man to run HIS house....she has experience at the job so why not. See, little known fact...once you are a Widow your father can't tell you that you HAVE to marry person X, your hand is yours to give...plus she inherited a good deal of money when her husband died.

    It's a nice tale from start to finish and a LOT of steamy scenes, very graphic steamy scenes...once a Widow that whole virginity thing is supposedly gone so people are sort of okay with shaking up at that point :-)

    I really liked it, I will have to check out some more of Stephanie Laurens books!

You took Connor and Ellery's journey of love, courage, and strength as Ellery's illness threatened their future in Forever Black. You continued their journey through the eyes of Connor Black in Forever You as you watched them get their happily-ever-after through marriage and planning for their first child. Join Connor and Ellery once again as they face the challenges of parenthood.

    This will be the same review for all three books.

    This series had some powerful stuff going on. There was concealment on both sides leading to misunderstanding and drama galore, but it was a nice growing relationship story. Sometimes I just stared at my phone thinking the leading lady was on crack, but she had her reasons for doing what she did, and he had his reasons for being the way he was.

    This isn't up there with the Crossfire series because those are just exhausting to read with all the ups and downs, but this also wasn't memorable like some of the other trilogies I have read...maybe I'm being a poor sport about this but I think too much of their story was told. The old saying of first theirs love, then theirs marriage, then there is blank in the baby carriage...it was just told so clearly that it didn't leave much to the imagination.

    The series is cheap enough so go ahead and purchase it, just save your credits for more powerful listens...I wouldn't call this series fluff but it wasn't gripping either.

    Forever You, is the highly anticipated sequel to USA Today’s best seller Forever Black. Connor Black’s life consisted of his company and his use of multiple women. There was never going to be love, relationships, or a fairy-tale life. Emotionally dead and damaged after a personal tragedy, Connor Black vowed never to love or fall in love with a woman - until Ellery Lane walked into his life by accident and changed him forever. He starts experiencing feelings and emotions he never felt before and finds himself being drawn into her world.
