    Great read. Exciting from the beginning. Nice sexual tension and, eventually, sex. Nice love story. Nice suspense story.
    Really liked Tillman and Shelly. I thought Jet was a little brash but I liked her, and Lily. Melkie definitely had some problems!!
    I would definitely recommend this book and read this author again.

    As to the narrator: She did most of the voices OK but I have to tell you it sounded like she was gasping before almost every new sentence she took such a noisy breath. I finished the book but I could never listen to her again. And I had to cringe every time she did Tia's voice, it was sooo bad. Ms. Bentley needs to do someting about her loud intakes of breath while reading or find a new line of work. Sorry!

    No warrior of the Nightfury pack is more complicated or damaged than Wick. Scarred from a childhood of slavery and torture, Wick cannot bear the touch of another person. But all bets are off when he meets J. J. Solares. When she is unjustly imprisoned, Wick agrees to help rescue and keep her from harm. But Wick lives a life of self-imposed isolation, and venturing into the world to seek justice for J. J. may be more than he can take.

    Over all, this was a good story but I have to admit that I skimmed a LOT of it, as I did with all of them.
    I loved all the characters, Wick, J.J, Venom, Mac, Bastian, Rikar, Sloan, and all their women. But, there was soooo much filler.
    From the very beginning of the book there was a plan to go get JJ from the hospital, that's how chapter 1 started and it took all the way to (about) page 120 before they ever got her. There was so much BS going on! Going to the club to find a woman for energy, 20 or 30 pages of that nonsense. Then Wick going outside all loopy, another 15 or so pages, then at the hospital it took another 30 or so pages before Wick ever touched her. I must have skimmed about 75 to 100 pages and that's really not good. I don't mind a little filler, that kind of goes with all books, but there was really no reason for this book to have over 400 pages and 12 and a half hours of (not so much) listening pleasure. I did like this group of dragon/men but I just can't see myself reading anymore from the author. And, if it's the publisher telling her they want 400 pages plus it's time to get a new publisher.

    As to the narrator: Mr. Darcie did a fine job. He's still a little iffy when it comes to the women's voices but he does try his best and that's all I can ask.

    New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates - until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed - and bound by a love stronger than time.

    Another looong story but it was good. I'am going to read the 4th book, Fury of Desire, but if there's anymore written I won't continue the series. The books are just too long and way too wordy. I skimmed a lot of pages getting past Mac's feelings for Tania, which were said over and over again in so many different ways, just to get back to the story. The bad guys, Ivar, Rodin, Hamersveld, are really bad, Rodin especially, ewww.
    I'm not sure about Nian. One minute I think he's bad then I'm not so sure.
    I'm almost positive there will be books on Gage and Haider and Sloan and Daimler and.... but not for me. If the author would write her books without so much BS I would read everything she has but she just writes too much unnecessary stuff. For instance, another author might write that "she got undressed and got in the shower." CC will write, "she bent over and untied her shoes. Took them off. She unzipped her jeans and slid them down her long legs. She slowly pulled her shirt over her head. She unhooked her bra, took it off and walked into the shower." Really? She writes sooo many crazy descriptions of crap going on. You could take 100 pages from this book and not miss a thing. It was a really good story but you have to skim too much just to find it.

    As to the narrator: I guess I've gotten used to him because it hasn't been so bad. Male narrators just cannot do women's voices worth a darn but at least Mr. Darcie tries and it has become bearable. I would listen to him again. The guys just take some getting used to.

    I said after I read Kiss of Midnight I probably wouldn't read anymore of these books because they're soo long and wordy but I decided to try this one anyway. I really enjoyed it. I liked Dante and Tess. They were both very likable. I liked Nora too but I wasn't crazy about Ben from the get-go. I think I'll look and see if there's a book about Chase and read that one next. If not, then I don't know if I'll continue with them in order or just forget it. These books have some great sex and that's one thing that keeps me interested. Not erotic or dirty sex just romantic sex.

    As to the narrator: One reviewer said she did a good job on the men's accents "italian, Russian and Brit," and she did. However, I guess she thought she could do the accents and still sound like a "girl" and that would be good. Umm, nope, not even close! I can't say I won't listen to her again because this book came out on audio in 2010 and Ms. Huber could have gotten better since then.

    I read the first book, Fury of Fire, last year and although I really liked it it was so long and wordy. So, when this one ended up FREE with my KindleUnlimited trial I decided to give it a shot. And, again, I really like it but it was still long and wordy. That being said, I will probably read the next one since I do Love dragons sooo much.
    Just like the first one I just loved Rikar and was glad he found his mate, Angela. Great love story and great sex between these two.
    I like the new dragon, Mac. Can't wait to see his growth. And I love Daimler.

    As to the narrator: I listened to the first book and gave Mr. Darcie 3 stars because he really wasn't any good with the women's voices. This time he was much better. I wasn't wishing for the book to end so I could be through with him, and that's good. So, I'll probably listen to the next in the series.

    Ok, I'm at 57% and I'm done. This is nothing more than the women trying to chase off the Northmen and the Northmen refusing to go. The salt was just rediculous.
    Maybe, I'm just not into Vikings, I don't know.
    Arienh is not nice at all and Birgit is just vicious. I realize she was raped years ago but she wasn't prepared to give Egil any kind of chance, it wasn't him that raped her. I really can't stand sooo much angst in a book and this one is full of it.

    It's a nice cover but that's about all.

    As to the narrator: I've listened to 2 different books by Ms. Coomes and gave her 5 stars but this one is just terrible. Just because you give a man an accent doesn't make him sound like a man. And these men did not sound like men. It was her voice with an accent. Not good..

    I was thinking of giving this book a 3 star review but I liked it more than "it's okay," which is a 3 star review.
    However, I doubt I'll read the next book. It's just way toooo long and it was a little repetitive. The one good thing about my iPad is being able to get a count on how many times a word or phrase is used; Jesu was said 54 times. Rahat was said 33 times and chewing on the bottom lip was used 29 times. Seriously? If the story hadn't been so good I would have given up.
    I liked Xavian and Afina a lot. Xavian's lust for her was crazy but his love for her was written better than any I've ever read before.
    I also liked Henri, Cristobal, Garren, Cruz, Andri and Shay. All the bad guys, Vladimir, Halal and Al Pacii were all just as bad as a person can possibly imagine.
    Besides it being sooo long this book is all about story telling. You have to go through pages and pages before anyone says anything and I don't really like that. It's like not involving the players in the book. When there's no dialogue I get bored pretty easy. It was a great story that's why I finished it. There was some really great sexual tension and some awesome sex in this book and if you don't mind there being so little dialogue then this book is for you.

    As to the narrator: She was good and bad. She did show emotions while reading, which is good. BUT her males didn't exactly sound like men, which is bad.
    I mean, really. When a book keeps referring to the hero's voice a low and sexy and the narrator sounds like a girl, how stupid is that. If she had sounded like a man when a man was talking she would have been a perfect narrator. I don't think I'd want to listen to her again if she can't even try to sound manly.

    Veterinarian Lauren Townsend has good reason for hiding her psychic ability. Not only did her “freakishness” earn her pariah status in the small town where she grew up, it cost her a fiancé and her faith in love. When Lauren foresees a murder - through the killer’s eyes - she traces the victim to a sprawling ranch, never guessing what waits for her.... Cal Taggart’s rugged ranch life doesn’t need any more complications. His stubborn determination cost him his marriage, and it may cost him his livelihood.

    I'm not really sure how I felt about this book. Parts were ok and parts got a little wordy and boring. I liked Cal but Lauren was a little annoying. It seemed kind of silly that she waited until the end of the book before she told Cal why she was really there. And, the author made Marlena so unlikable it made me not even care if Lauren saved Marlena or not. I really felt sorry for Brady and I hated his father, Harvey, who was really not his father, which I was glad of. This book did have lots of sexual tension and sex, which helped to make it a little better.

    As to the narrator: I can honestly say I don't think I would ever listen to her again. She sounded like she was reading the dictionary one minute then was full of silly emotions the next. When Cal and Lauren were have sex, or were about to, Cal sounded like he did when he was hanging off the cliff and was struggling to breath. His passion filled voice was just horrible and a little creepy. Definitely would not want to listen to Ms. Beresford again. She was very inconsistant in her reading.

    This was a really good read. It got a little boring for a minute but came back soon enough. I liked Jess and Sabastian a lot. Could barely stand Claudia or Quintin. And loved Aunt Eunice. I was surprised at one of the bad guys, and disappointed but they both really got what was coming to them. An entertaining book with sexual tension and great sex.

Then Lucas Cochran came back to Colorado. In the drought-cursed high country, he needed Angel Creek and its cool water to turn his Double C ranch into the cattle dynasty he craved. His ruthless ambition guaranteed he would fight to take it away from the black-haired, green-eyed spitfire who claimed it.

    Usually, I read a book a day, give or take. This book I bought on July 18th and I'm still only at 36% and I've read several books while waiting to get interested in this one. It's not happening, however. I don't really like Dee. I like Lucas only a little. I don't care if they get together or not. I think I like Olivia and Luis better than Lucas and Dee. Also, I think I prefer LH's CIA books rather than her westerns. In fact, I just love westerns, but not this one. I gave it 3 stars because I'm not finishing it.

    As to the narrator: I'm never disappointed in Natalie Ross. Her voices are clear and distinct and her heroes always sound sexy. Can't ask for more than that.

His life is orderly, scandal free and exactly the way it should be until Miss Eleanor Westin careens into him, upsetting the perfect balance of his world. She is everything his father said he should not marry. Yet, he cannot put her from his mind, not even when a decade old scandal threatens the very foundation of his family.

    I thought this was a really good book. I could see why Clay was the way he was, having been brain washed by such a bastard of a father. Elle was a little silly at times, with her refusal to straighten out the misunderstanding and her pride. And it was kind of odd that she would turn down Acker's proposal but accepted Lord Wilkes, who gave her the creeps.
    Oh, and, I really hated her grandfather, Lord Stanhope. I can only hope he dies in the next book, if he's in it.
    There was some great sexual tension and great sex in this book, too.

    As to the narrator: She did a great job with the voices. There could have been a little more emotion in her reading but she did a great job, over all.
