    Her source of power is her greatest weakness. Tough, ruthless, and loyal, Jared Johnson has always been a force to be reckoned with: first as an outlaw and now as a vampire. Caught in a war between immortals, he doesn't have time to waste. But when a female vampire is attacked, he can't just walk away. He expects a quick good-bye, but what he gets is a vulnerable woman who intrigues and seduces while giving away nothing of the secrets holding her hostage.

    Story

    Jared powers are fun to listen to. The Johnson Brothers together are hilarious. They are a group of guys that don't know anything they NEED to know about women but know EVERYTHING they need to know about THEIR woman which puzzles the heck out of one another!

    I sure hope Sarah writes a book about Derek!

    Looks like those that loved Caleb went on to read Jared becuase there are no bad reviews so far for Jared, and there shouldn't be. Like Caleb, Jared has his own demons, finds his one true love and fights for their existence as a family. Loved it!

    Acclaimed for her richly imagined paranormal romances, Kendra Leigh Castle begins her Dark Dynasties series with this sizzling tale. Shapeshifting vampire Tynan MacGillivray has been ordered to find a human seer who can give his clan the upper hand in a devastating war. So he tracks down Lily Quinn, and together they discover a new world of danger, sensuality, and powers that cannot be controlled.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story though the feelings between the hero and heroine was simply a pulling with not much depth behind it. I never got the absolute dread feeling when something bad happened, telling me that I didn't connect enough with the main characters to be very upset when something happened. The events had little dramatics and not enough comic relief.

    I am sure I could not narrate better than Mr. Bradbury but I found that compared to other narrators, I was just waiting for the book to be over so I could pick a book with another narrator. I found the long pauses annoying. The hero seemed to have a never ending angry voice where some of the thing he said, I thought, shouldn't have been said with so much anger or annoyance. I also feel that typically a woman, in general, has more range to handle a woman's voice and man's voice quite nicely.

    After being brought back from death, police officer Jackson Waverly receives the shock of his life: He has become host to a Bodywalker, a spirit that is reborn in flesh and blood, and part of a proud, ancient race that uses its extraordinary gifts to battle dark, evil forces. Jackson's spirit is a powerful one-none other than the Egyptian pharaoh Menes, who longs to reunite with his eternal love, the Egyptian queen Hatshepsut.

    Jackson and Marissa.....avoidance, acknowledgement, acceptance and power. Typical paranoral theme. These two were so annoying to "watch" but, for me, probably the most rewarding pairing.....The whole love of the ages thing is absolutely marvelous....the foursome thing is quite interesting too... ;)

    Great Book 2

    The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia's savior doesn't turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.... When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen.

    So, I actually stopped and started this book about three times. It was so slow to start...and a bit confusing for me to follow while doing other things. The herone name, to me was such a strange name too....

    I had to actually sit and listen to understand what was going on. Jacqueline did a wonderful job of laying the foundation of this series with this book 1 and though just a bit slower than the other 3 that follow, it was well worth it.

    As a mercenary, Leo Alvarez has signed on for a lot-but he never signed on for his best friend becoming host to the soul of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. Jackson is now inhabited by a Bodywalker, and Leo is forced to grapple with a realm of supernatural beings far more dangerous than anything he's ever encountered. But when Jackson is wounded by an attack from a demon god, Leo must team up with another supernatural creature-a Night Angel-to save his friend from utter destruction.

    A real internal battle is what Leo went through in this book 3 of the Nightwalker series. Not the typical, "my childhood was crappy so it's hard for me to trust" battle but something with real scars that takes a hero and herone stronger than someone you can relate with to get through. Loved this book and great book three of this series.

    When Katrina Haynes discovers a large man lying wounded in the snow, she fears he is at death's door. But as Kat tends to his injuries, she quickly realizes that they're the least of her worries. With an irresistible Scottish brogue and a strange ability to harden his chiseled body like a statue, the stranger awakens a desire she is unable to resist - and a fascination about the intriguing world he exists in. As a proud Gargoyle, Ahnvil must safeguard the Nightwalker to whom he's sworn fealty.

    Story

    The comedy and drama mix is invaluable in this book 4 of the Nightwalker series. The background of the growning force of nightwalkers stoked my growing anticipation of the finale (or at least book 5). I always hate it when I find a wonderful series (and narrator) and it ends. Jacquelyn Frank, teamed with one of my favorite narrators, Xe Sands is a power house for paranormal romance.

    Ever since his cousin Adelaide disappeared, Cole Cameron has been searching for her and for Isaiah Jones, whom he blames for her kidnapping, after a hellacious fight in town involving - if the stories of drunken saloon goers were to be believed - men who changed into wolves. Being a practical man, Cole doesn't believe it.

    Then he is rescued from a pack of strangely intelligent wolves by none other than his quarry, Isaiah.

    Sarah continues to surprise me with these story lines and sexy heros and heroine! I was pleasantly surprised with the uncommoness of Cole and his view of the Reaper world. Thank goodness Miranda accepts that of him. If you haven't read any of Sarah's books, this is a great one to start, even if it is Book 2.

    Hailed as a major talent in paranormal romance, Nalini Singh takes us deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings in her latest extraordinary novel, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future---a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind. In danger from the Psy, Faith NightStar's fragile sanity will be tested by an all-consuming passion for a changeling who can take the form of man or jaguar.

    The Alpha was nice, the Jaguar is nicer! Great book 2 in the Series. There is a lot to look forward to and Nalini does a great job of planting those seeds that more excitement, more unravelling, more loving is coming. I hope that the Publisher's Summary is hiding some of whats going to happen because I can't wait to find out about Faiths father and the broken sentinal!!

    But on to book 3....Brenna and Judd?!?! Oh my gosh, can't wait!

    Story

    Interesting story of many species. At first I hated the Psy but later I felt that it wasn't completly their fault. I like the wolves. I am a little partial to wolves after the Shadow Wranglers Series by Sarah McCarty but the cats have a different personality that is starting to grow on me too. This book has a different kind of "action" than I am used to reading. The fighting is more of escaping and fighting on a mental plane than in a brawl but a brawl is bound to break out sometime. The book is imaginative and believable. Can't wait to listen to the next one.

    I can't imagine accepting so easily a trip back in time so drastic, even if I was from such a mysterious place as New Orleans. I liked Hawk, I hated the smithy and poor Adrienne was just a confused mess. Good sensual parts, none of the physical fighting I expected but mostly fighting of emotions, wants and needs. The book was entertaining though I probably won't go for the rest of the series.
