Malic Sunden is in hell—only not literally... yet. As a warder, Malic is used to fighting demons and squaring off against all kinds of creatures from the pit, but this year he’s facing a new and terrifying prospect: Christmas holidays with his much younger boyfriend and his family. He loves Dylan, his hearth, but Dylan’s parents, the Shaws, are another story. They think Malic is a cradle-robber, among other things.
At least their neighbor, Brad, seems to like him. Then again, maybe not. When Malic gets offered to a demon who wipes his memory of everything but Dylan’s name, it will take all Malic has to escape his new life in a hell dimension and return to the man he calls home.

I only recommend this for people who've read the first 5 books or at least the second book since you have to at least know how Malic and Dylan met.
I've already read several of her books, so yes. As long as the narrator isn't Andrew Schwartz.
When Malic was ensnared within the Demon's trap.
Ryan. Simply because he's my favorite warder and wasn't even featured a lot in his own book.
The metadata for this audiobook is incorrect. It says it was narrated by Andrew Schwartz, it wasn't. This was narrated by Paul Morey who is a million times better. If you hated the narrator in the first 4 books, don't worry... This was not done by Schwartz.
This was a wonderful addition to a wonderful series. I loved that they showed more of this couple as well the first book of them seemed a bit rushed but this one fixed it and fleshed them out a bit.
I have the set in audiobook format. I must admit to listening to them often. They are a fast read with great story development. Action and romance. My favorite is Cherish The Name. To get the most out of it read Tooth And Nail for character development. 5 books in all. I hope Mary Calmes adds to the series in the future. Especially with Malic and Dylan.
Malic and Dylan are a couple but they still have a long way to go. Malic still worries that he’s too old for Dylan. Dylan worries he’s too young.
When they go home to Dylan’s family for Christmas, Dylan’s family isn’t exactly welcoming and Dylan ends up hanging out with his buddies more than Malic.
Mal, on the other hand, ends up hanging out with the neighbor – a seemingly nice guy with a broken leg in need of a helping hand.
But… he’s actually trying to lure Malic in for a demon’s purpose and it’s up to Malic’s love of Dylan to save him from the pit.
We get to see the whole gang again and get a really super sweet HEA.
Paul Morey does this narration and I loved it! I love his voice for Dylan and Mal and for the other warders.
I highly recommend this series and this narration.
4.5 of 5 stars
A Great Read!
The fight with the demon at Brad's house.
Yes and I like his voice so it was just as good as the last book.
No Place Like Home. or Home is were your Hearth is.
! Love to listen to jazz, r/b and listen to erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and " good narration is everything"
I loved these two characters Dylan and Malic from "Tooth and Nail". I'm glad Ms Calmes wrote a second story about them. It shows background for Dylan, its simply a nice short story and I have listen more than once.
"Great book and narration"
Cherish your name is a continuation of some sorts, of Malic's and Dylan's story. It's placed on Christmas and what we see is the growth in the relationship between the two protagonists but with themselves also. Dylan's family struggles to accept the fact that Dylan is partners with an older man and don't accept Malic right away. After Dylan explains his feelings and Malic's things start to change for the better. But demon trouble never is far away from a Warder.
We also see how Malic starts to depend more on his fellow Warders and even better we get hints about the series not ending just yet. We can only but wait.
For the narration I can't say much since Andrew Schwartz is one of my most favorite narrators and he always delivers! I'd love to see him do more of Mary Calmes books in the future.
