Callis Rose is a girl blessed with a gift from above or cursed with a ruthless power she barely understands; it's really just a matter of degrees.

Callis is moved from home to home until she finally settles at the Lowries. As she starts her first day of high school she meets both her favorite and least favorite person.

Loved the story.I believe everyone would like to have Callis’s ability for certain people and times in their lives.To be able to control someone with your mind,to prevent them from harming you or someone else.To make them do things to embarrass themselves for being mean,but for Callis,her poor World turned upside down when by a simple wish to have something,it turned into an ongoing nightmare ultimately ending her life.
Last time Lila Harris was in Happy, Texas, she was actively earning her reputation as the resident wild child. Now, a little older and wiser, she's back to run her mother's café for the summer. Except something about this town has her itching to get a little reckless and rowdy, especially when she sees her old partner-in-crime, Brody Dawson. Their chemistry is just as hot as ever. But he's still the town's golden boy - and she's still the wrong kind of girl.
I don’t know about anyone else...but if I come back to my home town to a hunky cow boy who is devoted to showering me with affection not to mention trying to provide me with some real sexy,steamy moments...It’s a no brainer,I’m staying in Happy Texas and keeping my teaching job,my friends and my hunk a hunk of burnen love.Narration was great,story was great but the female heroine”Lila”was a major procrastinator .

Like a Wolf with a Bone by Shelly Laurenston: Quiet little Darla Lewis couldn't be happier when the most-feared member of the South's rowdiest pack kidnaps her. A girl gets real tired of being overprotected by her own shifter family, and there's nothing like an oh-so-big bad wolf to start a pack feud, unleash her instincts - and have her surrender however and whenever she wants....
This is a really bad spinoff of the show True Blood,but with mostly werewolves.The narrator was great,but unfortunately...even though she did an excellent rendition of dumb redneck,it was a waste of her talent.Put it this way,if you ever saw True Blood and knew the character playing Ginger and also Sams shifter mother.That describes the first half of this book(couldn’t put myself through the second story in the book).Awful waste of a credit and time.And living in the South as I do,I find it offensive to make Southerners to sound like idiots.
Margot Cary has spent her life immersed in everything Lake Sackett is not. As an elite event planner, Margot's rubbed elbows with the cream of Chicago society and made elegance and glamour her business. She's riding high until one event goes tragically, spectacularly wrong. Now she's blackballed by the gala set and in dire need of a fresh start - and apparently the McCreadys are in need of an event planner with a tarnished reputation.
Not one of my favorites by Molly,a bit repetitive.Amandas narration always helps the story be better though.I like Molly’s Vampire and Wolf series much better,more humor,more steam.
It's a business trip that takes attorney Maddie Fitzgerald down to New Orleans, but it's hardly business as usual when a man breaks into her hotel room and tries to kill her. Barely escaping with her life, the sexy, stylish 32-year-old brunette calls the police and finds herself face-to-face with FBI agent Sam McCabe. Unnerved by his questions - and his good looks - Maddie is told she's been targeted by a hired killer, one who has eluded McCabe for years.
Well rounded suspense romance story between a woman running from her past,making a new future under the guise of an alias ,only to be found in the lime light accepting an award.Bringing out the ones who mean to kill her.Now FBI agent Sam McGabe has been sent on a wild goose chase to find the killer before he kills his next victim.Maddy was fortunate enough to get away and has been shadowed by the very agents trying to protect her and other victims.The story is full of suspense,intrigue,mystery, romance and some funny moments with Zelda the dog to lighten the seriousness of the situation.Great story.
Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn't the best idea she'd ever had, but she was desperate - she wasn't about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.
Love Molly Harpers paranormal romance books.This is a nice turn from the usual Vampire story,including Mom’s,PTA meetings a love triangle and BigFoot.Libby has her hands full with deciding to become a vampire to over come her terminal cancer,raise a six year old boy,trying to fight her in-laws from getting custody of her son.Having a romance with a mechanic/biker dude and an obsessed vampire sire.Baking brookies while trying not to vomit for the school charity festival,etc.,etc...Great narration as usual by Amanda.
Prepare to fall in love with the Grayson brothers in Shades of Honor, the first novel in the best-selling series by award-winning author Wendy Lindstrom. Haunted by a gruesome war and his own dark secrets, former Union soldier Radford Grayson returns home, seeking a loving reunion with his brothers and a place where he and his young daughter can make a home. Desperate for peace, Radford is ambushed by his unexpected and forbidden love for Evelyn - his brother's fiancée.
Talk about a hot mess.You come home from fighting in the war,then leave when things get a bit hairy.Come back to find out that you p!ssed off one of your brothers royally after leaving him to carry the family business,then steal his fiancé,nearly beat him to a pulp and scare the crap out of your 4 year old daughter who has trust issues.Sounds more like a”modern”romance not a historical one.I guess they had some messed up stuff go down back then too.What a mountain to drill through.
When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she is in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers. Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. She realizes she is that person. When she meets Jack Walker, they realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he's been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.
The story was ok,more like an x-rated teen novel.The narrator needs more practice and needs to individualize the characters more with different voice pitches.She got a little better as the story read on but not by much.The book probably would have been slightly more better if you just read it.
Reckless, wild, and beautiful, Lily Lawson delights in shocking proper London society – and now she is determined to rescue her sister from an unwanted impending marriage to the notorious Alex, Lord Raiford, by fair means or foul. But while she succeeds outrageously, Alex is a master gamesman who is not to be undone.
Narration was great.Story was unconventional for a historical romance which was a nice change,giving a woman the freedom and power to act as a man during that time.For Lily to fight,live life and push forward to find her daughter,to save her sister from an un happy marriage,only to find a happily ever after of her own.Great story.Loved the twist that gave Lily’s character some spunk.
