Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. Winter despises her stepmother and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend - the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be, and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years.
Winter was the perfect topping for a series so rich with marvelous characters and intriguing intertwining story plots. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles and thank Marissa Meyer for sharing her imagination with the world.
Don't miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture, in theaters August 2013.

Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the best-selling Infernal Devices trilogy.
It is one thing to read about a love triangle full of jealousy and betrayal. But what do you do when all three parties love the other two with all of their soul?
these three characters are so beautiful. My heart was in constant turmoil; happy and broken for one or the other. I think Cassandra Clare did a perfect job of telling their story and working it out for them in the end.
When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she's determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother's gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?
It's always a pleasure to watch another player brought to his knees and this story did it exceptionally well. Love Sebastian York's voice. Sooooo sexy!
When Sophie, the least interesting of the Talbot sisters, lands her philandering brother-in-law backside first in a goldfish pond in front of all society, she becomes the target of very public aristocratic scorn. Her only choice is to flee London, vowing to start a new life far from the aristocracy. Unfortunately, the carriage in which she stows away isn't saving her from ruin. It's filled with it.
Very good story. better than I expected. narrator did excellent job with all voices except for King's. I had hoped he would sound more masculine and less like the snobbish aristocrats. excellent overall.

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had.
In a literary world already flooded with post apocalyptic stories, The Red Queen has managed to surprise me and entertain me thoroughly. I look forward to the next installment in this series with great anticipation
Dr. Joyce Yards has never met anyone as sexy or as irresistible as 466. He refuses to discuss anything except getting her naked beneath him. Their therapy sessions are growing hotter, his raw hunger for her is becoming aggressive, and she is falling for him. Joy knows the dire consequences if she gives in to desire. It will break her heart but she must walk away.
I was a little disappointed in this one. I really like Moon and was hoping for something a little more . . . exciting . . . for him. His situation was interesting enough. I just think it could have been told differently.
Kat’s boss wants dirt on the NSO. She is sent to Homeland undercover, but everything goes wrong as soon as she enters the front gates. She is arrested by a big, powerful, sexy New Species but she is not frightened. He turns her on and things heat up fast between them. Now, she just hopes he doesn’t break her heart.
DAMN!!!! Brawn was my number one until Darkness came along. LOVED seeing the baddest of bad asses humbled by love. And the sex? Like I said . . . DAMN!!!! Best New Species sex ever! Darkness is my new book boyfriend.

Vanni is furious when her fiancé tricks her into attending a conference where his father's church is protesting the New Species Organization. She hates everything those vile bigots stand for. Vanni goes to the bar to cool off and ends up seated next to a handsome New Species. Things heat up fast when they are both drugged.
I wear my own heart on my sleeve and I love the idea of a big powerful male unafraid to show his feelings, feelings that transfer to passion in the bedroom. Besides, I have loved Smiley from the beginning. I am so pleased that he has finally found the love of his life.
Zandy’s had too much to drink and is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She knows she’s going to die. When next her eyes open, a beautiful man-creature is holding her in his arms. He’s just too tempting to resist; her very own fallen angel. She wraps herself around his body, determined to have him. But when this angel turns out to be flesh and blood, reality crashes in - she’s seducing a New Species. Tiger’s shock quickly turns to intense passion when the human female kisses him, despite the fact she’s trying to get his clothes off while he’s engaged in a task force operation.
Tiger's surrender to love is my favorite. The harder they fight, the harder they should fall. And the sex is smokin'. Wow! Somebody get me a fan!

One look at Brawn, and Becca is wondering how he’d look without his clothes. He’s also instantly attracted to her, but has sworn never to touch a human female. They just aren’t sturdy enough for the type of rough sex Brawn enjoys most. When he learns he’ll be living under the same roof with Becca, Brawn simply sees it as a chance to broaden his knowledge of humans. Hopefully he can do so while keeping his hands off her.… His good intentions go astray when they’re both kidnapped and locked together in a cage.
Brawn is one of my favorite characters. But then who can resist a tall, exceptionally buff gorgeous man with midnight blue eyes and black hair to his ass? And let's not forget those canines..... and those special kitty skills.... YUM!!!!
