He puts the horrific tragedies of his past behind him and finds serenity in his new life. That is, until he recognizes a customer as former Nazi SS officer Hans Stern....

I was on the shelf about preordering this book but decided to go ahead since the majority of the book takes place in the US. The chemist is such a logical person who keeps his family alive in his memory. He comes across this old x-N. The Nazi

Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league's fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury - and to play alongside his big brother, Max - is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most...er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.

I like Sawyer Bennett books because they always have a plot line that doesn’t depend only on the in and out bed scenes. They contain meat in the series. No pun intended 🤭🤗

Meet the hottest detective duo in New Orleans - she's Queen Latifah. He's Danny DeVito. Or they would be if this were a movie - in print, they're Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino. Talba's got the beauty, the brains, the computer savvy, the poetic soul, the youth, the right demographic, and the sass. Eddie's got the detective agency. Also a short fuse and yes, wisdom. Not only do they make it work, they've got chemistry.

Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings - some corporeal, some not so much - as she struggles to right the wrongs of society.

Since I have been in at the first book, by the last chapter I thought Darynda had ended her “Grave” book series and was a little sad, but Due to a twist (may I add a corkscrew twist) in the plot there will be more. If you have read or listened to books in this series you will not be disappointed in “The Trouble With Twelfth Grave and will be looking forward to the ones to come.

Ari Katz is intelligent and driven and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin, Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap. When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari's induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn't expect is to take her brother's place among the until-now all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it's not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that's exactly what happens one cold February evening.

Another addition to J.D. Robb's 'in Death" series that I wait for each year to come out in Audible form. Unfortunately this year I saved it until the horrible hurricane IRMA needed to be watched and paid attention to so there were so many stops and starts it didn't get the dedicated time it needed. I will, in the near future listen to it again, but the first time around, even interrupted it was riveting. You will be entertained and will listen more than once.

Peter Stone is a poor, black vampire who is wondering where his nightclub, mansion, and sports car is. Instead, he is working a minimum wage job during the night shift, as being a vampire isn't all that impressive in a world where they've come out to mortals. Exiled from the rich and powerful undead in New Detroit, he is forced to go back when someone dumps a newly-transformed vampire in the bathroom of his gas station's store.

It's a stunning attack, lightning quick and chilling in its execution. A merciless gang of terrorists seizes the Presidio County Courthouse in the midst of the worst blizzard West Texas has seen in a century. Loaded down with enough firepower to outfit an army, the attackers slaughter dozens, take all survivors hostage, and assume complete control. The nation - and the US government - are at their mercy. Or so they think. They don't know that a seasoned Texas Ranger is also inside the courthouse.

This entire book makes me so thankful I was born in the Western Hemisphere to parents who felt even for the time in which my sisters and I were raised valued education for each one of us and was determined we all would graduate from college. The facts that the author in this book had the issues she had were because of the fact of her gender and the land in which she was born and the politics of the time. What she was subjected was horrific for driving a car. She went to prison for driving a car. Let that sink in for a minute. Listen to this book. You will value your laws and the people who help to help uphold them.

In North by Northwest, Paula is at her best in two memorable performances, one recorded in Bayfield, Wisconsin, at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua, and the other at the historic Aladdin Theater in Portland, Oregon. Join Paula Poundstone in her element: sharing too much information, telling unpredictable stories, and interacting with her audience with a spontaneity that is considered without peer.
