    I listened to this book just for the whole purpose of getting to the end. Nothing exciting ever happens in the book, and it's one you'd listen to if you didn't have anything better to do. Of if you can't sleep. Lie down, relax and listen and trust me you'll be instantly asleep. Rosalyn Landor has a wonderful voice that coupled with a boring book puts you to sleep in a flash. If it wasn't for Rosalyn Landor I wouldn't have even gone through 30 mins of the book.

    It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover, Bones, at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

    This is the third in the series of Night Huntress novels and I must say JF is bringing the series along beautifully. There is not much repetition, which would bore anyone to death. The story line is coming along very nicely and the I really like the way JF is evolving the characters. This is a definite must read for anyone who is into vampires and vampire slayers.

    It's 1811, and the threat of revolution haunts the upper classes of King George III's England. Then a beautiful young woman is found savagely murdered on the altar steps of an ancient church near Westminster Abbey. A dueling pistol found at the scene and the damning testimony of a witness both point to one man - Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, a brilliant young nobleman shattered by his experience in the Napoleonic Wars.

    Story

    Absolutely brilliant, It gives you a look and appreciation of Crime Scene Investigation without the modern day perks of computer analysis, finger prints and DNA. There is a certain dark humor which I really enjoyed, very strong characters which I wouldn't have been able to read without. The story is gripping, the characters move you, and the best of all Davina Porters narration and voice makes your toes curl with ecstasy.

    I can't download the second in the series fast enough!!!

    Story

    I'm only halfway through the book right now but I've already checked thrice to see that the author isn't Nora Roberts. The book is a very light read. Frivolous and not having much of a story line and bare remnants of a mystery. The story line also doesn't really catch you and make you want to read. Nothing to hold your interest. So far it's a 1 star...

    ...The book now done, I can clearly say that my views have not changed one bit!! The thread of a mystery that we are to be following is still hanging unsolved and the book ended very abruptly. This mirage of a mystery is to be continued in the rest of the series, that is if anyone can stomach having to read the rest of the series!!!

    I love Scots and Highland books, and I must say that this book was no different. I enjoyed the way the story flowed, there was not much romance between Aidan and Lleas which suited me just fine. There was so much description to the landscape and the ancient ways that I really enjoyed. I will be reading the rest of this series.

    What's a duke to do when a carefully selected bride rejects him rather than marry without love? He salvages his pride by marrying the next woman who falls into his arms. Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie bewitched the Duke of Belmore the moment she appeared from nowhere and knocked him over...literally. Joyous MacQuarrie is a Scottish witch whose powers of white magic are not always easy for her to control. When Alec's pride makes him choose to marry her, Joy turns the life of the most serious and snobbish duke in England upside down.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    I must say this book took my breath away. Kat as the female character calls herself is a half vamp, being conceived by a newly created vamp raping her mother. A shame, and vengeance which her mother carries and makes her carry. Seeing that she goes out at night to kill those awful creatures. This is when she meets Bones a 200+ year old vamp, who initially takes her under his wings trains her as a vampire slayer and later becomes her love interest.

    The action in this book is fast paced and makes you want to cheer for Kat. I can't wait to get to the other books in this series!

    A heart-stopping crime thriller from the author of three consecutive No. 1 bestsellers, including Birthdays for the Dead and the DI Logan McRae series. He's back... Eight years ago, ‘The Inside Man' murdered four women and left three more in critical condition - all of them with their stomachs slit open and a plastic doll stitched inside. And then the killer just … disappeared. Ash Henderson was a Detective Inspector on the initial investigation, but a lot can change in eight years.

    The book and characters are very much in tune with Nora Roberts and just as exciting with a climatic and exciting finish. But I must say I enjoyed the 1st book the most because of the narrator. I wouldn't mind listening to it again if it was read by Katherine Kellgren. I'm not saying that Susan Ericksen didn't do a great job it's just that the voices better suited KK more cause she did the first book.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Nothing's better than a combination of Nora Roberts and Katherine Kellgren.
    The story is moving and beautiful and KK makes it even more wonderful with her voice.
    NR makes you care for her characters and love them. I'm waiting for the rest in the series to come out. I've seen them in the kindle edition for pre-order but not yet in the audible version.
    Can't wait for the audible version to come out. Hope it's being read by KK again.

    England, 1888. Quiet and scholarly Princess Emilie has always avoided adventure, until she's forced to disguise herself as a tutor in the household of the imposing Duke of Ashland, a former soldier disfigured in battle and abandoned by his wife. When chance draws her into a secret liaison with the duke, Emilie can't resist the opportunity to learn what lies behind his forbidding mask and find out what adventure really means. The duke never imagines that his son's tutor and his mysterious golden-haired beauty are one and the same.

    I must say I enjoyed the book once I'd forced myself to get past the first 2 hours.
    Had I not been traveling and could change to another book I would have. But I was stuck with this book and figured I'd read it through. I must say I was glad of it and have gone on to purchase the second title in this series and have started listening to it too.
    I takes some getting used to. but once you have it's a good book.
