Everybody is the hero of their own story and the villain of somebody else's.
A book in three parts that introduces the world of the Preternaturals (all couples appear throughout the series):
When werecat Greta learns her tribe plans to sacrifice her on the next full moon, unleashing the potent magic of her blood, a dark sorcerer is the only one strong enough to protect her. Will Dayne kill her as he has so many others of her kind? Or is his grudge against her family strong enough to save her?
In the midst of a power struggle for vampire king, it soon becomes clear to Anthony that the only way to protect a fragile human in his care is to claim her as his mate. Meanwhile, his deepest wish is to have his lover awakened from the memory loss that took everything, not just the memories he meant to erase.
Be small. Be invisible. It's an understandable life mantra for a human woman in a world of monsters. But even worse, Jane's blood contains a touch of vampire magic that makes her their target. With her faster-than-normal healing time, she's an ideal punching bag for the abusive vampire she's been living with, the one she thought might protect her this time. When he sells her to a werewolf in payment for a gambling debt, Jane is sure her life is over. But Cole may be the one being who can free her from the vampires for good.

Part One: KEPT
Wow! What a great little story. I absolutely loved Dayne and Greta. Well, except for the part where she took the raw steak out of the fridge and ate it. I thought that was pretty gross. But mostly, I really liked the story. It was all about her running to Dayne, a sorcerer, to protect her from getting sacrificed. And, even though Jaden wasn’t in it too much I liked her, too. And Simon got exactly what he deserved, the jerk. Anthony was kind of cool, too.
Yes, there was some pretty heated and explicit sex in this story.
Part Two: CLAIMED
So, Anthony messed up with Charlee and had to find a way to fix it. And then icky Linus shows up and ruins things, since he wants to go back to killing humans. Eventually, Anthony has to tell Charlee the truth, and overall that goes over pretty well, although Charlee trusts him even less now, thanks partially to the crap Jane told her. And Gregory should have given up on the tournament to choose who would be king of the vampires. LOL, he was pretty funny sounding in the audible version.
Hmmm, I don’t remember any sex in this story.
Part Three: MATED
OK, I love Cole right off the bat, but it could just be the voice the narrator gave him. And I did like Paul in the other book but he turned into a real a-hole in this one. Wow, I just wanted him dead. The other thing I didn’t like about this is when Cole and Jane started to make love, they’d been together for weeks and never even kissed, and as soon as they finally started kissing she put her hand between the two of them and started to stroke him. Really? How unromantic is that? Suddenly, I didn’t care if they had sex or not, I was so bummed about Jane’s actions. At this point I just wanted to story to end. I know, I’m really weird!
Anyway, Rhonda and Anthony were taken care of. Cole and Jane, Greta and Dayne, Charlee and Anthony, lived HEA and this was a good book. I’ll have to see what other books go with this one.
There was explicit sex in these stories and swearing and the F-bomb was released 43 times.
As to the narrator: Chet Williamson is new to me and overall I really liked him. The funny things in the book were even funnier the way he read them. His women’s voices weren’t very good, so he needs to practice that, as they are masculine. I did listen to him at 1.25 and that seemed to be perfect.
