In a universe where assassins make the law, everyone lives in fear - except for Syn. Born of an illicit scandal that once rocked a dynasty, he always knew how to survive on the bloodthirsty streets. But that was then, and the future is now...Syn was raised as a tech-thief until his livelihood uncovered a truth that could end his life. He tried to destroy the evidence, and has been on the run ever since. Now trained as an assassin, he allows no one to threaten him.
I'm enjoying the series much more than I thought I would. Enjoyed it more when Kelly was the narrator in Born of Night. Fred doesn't give enough differences between the voices for me. And his female voices are grating, to say the least. Didn't like him when he read the Dark-Hunter series, either. Sigh!!!!

Liberty Jones has dreams that will take her far away from Welcome, Texas, if she can keep her wild heart from ruling her mind. Hardy Cates sees Liberty as completely off-limits. His own ambitions are bigger than Welcome, and Liberty Jones is a complication he doesn't need. When Hardy leaves town to pursue his plans, Liberty soon finds herself under the spell of a billionaire tycoon.
Sugar Daddy was an ok book. I enjoyed Liberty and the way the book took us through her growth. I just wish Gag would have shown up earlier in the story. The narrator was ok...just a little too high pitched. However, Blue-Eyed Devil(next book in the series) more than made up for this slow moving story. It's narrator and story were wonderful!!

In the Ichidian Universe, The League and their ruthless assassins rule all. Expertly trained and highly valued, the League Assassins are the backbone of the government. But not even the League is immune to corruption. Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League - and has been hunted by them ever since.
What an EXCELLENT narration of the book. The story was typical Sherrilyn...but the narration MADE the book!!!! Kelly Fish did an outstanding job with ALL the voices...giving each character a different voice. A truly wonderful experience!!!!!

Once, Atlas, the Titan god of Strength, was the Greek goddess Nike's slave. Now, he is her master. And soon these sworn enemies destined to destroy one another will be forced to risk everything for a chance at love.
I've tried listening to this series. 4 books later and I'm done. Just too sophmoric!

He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought - and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.
I was upset when I was informed they were changing narrators in the middle of the series. I thought..."Here we go again." I started the book, then stopped. Adjusting to the new "Mac" took a few times. Then it clicked!! I wish Natalie would have read the previous versions. She has a more calming, mature voice. I LOVE her as Mac. And Phil...well he's WONDERFUl as the male voices!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this series. However, the endings are giving me anxiety attacks. LOL I hate waiting a YEAR before the next book in the series comes out...but that's because I'm one who snuck and opened my xmas presents early, hating to wait for the surprise. LOL Thank you Karen for this wonderful series!!!

Katherine Cahill's life is shattered forever when her three young children are killed on an airplane that is blown to pieces by a terrorist bomb in the skies over Italy. Determined to make the terrorists pay for this savagery, Katherine circumvents the frustrating bureaucracy of the State Department and heads for Syria in search of their leader, Tayib.
7th Book in the Troubleshooters Series, and my least favorite. I found myself zoning out throught the story. Kinda boring. And what's with the narrators?! Why would you have male and female readers, only to have them alternating chapters? That's just plain goofy and it's SO distracting. The male should read the male voices and the female read the female voices.
It was supposed to be an elaborate demonstration of SEAL rescue techniques to celebrate a presidential visit to a California naval base. Professional, no-nonsense White House staffer Joan DaCosta arrives early to scope out the area. Assigned to be her SEAL liaison is Lt. Mike Muldoon - strong, decisive, tough, and fearless. When tension mounts between them, fueling a growing attraction, a sinister danger is lurking, as terrorists plot a daring attack against the president.
I loved the story of Muldoon and DaCosta. However...the narrator made it a trying listen. She at least needs to "deepen" her male voices. What a distraction listenening to. You had to really concentrate on who was speaking. I hate that. Otherwise, a great story.

Fang Kattalakis isn't just a wolf. He is the brother of two of the most powerful members of the Omegrion: the ruling council that enforces the laws of the Were-Hunters. And when war erupts among the lycanthropes, sides must be chosen. Enemies are forced into shaky alliances. And when the woman Fang loves is accused of betraying her people, her only hope is that Fang believes in her.
I really liked the book. Narration was good...story line...good. I only wish that Fang and Amy's story would have been more "connected" rather than their story be more of their individual stories. Otherwise...I recommend!

Tory Bodeen grew up in a small, rundown house where her father ruled with an iron fist and a leather belt - and where her dreams and talents had no room to flourish. But she had Hope - who lived in the big house, just a short skip away, and whose friendship allowed Tory to be something she wasn't allowed to be at home: a child. But after Hope's brutal murder, Tory's life fell apart. Now grown, she's trying to find a measure of peace. But Hope's killer is still nearby.
What an intense book. And the ending. WOW Didn't care for the narrator. Couldn't differentiate between characters. Otherwise, a very good book.

Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade. Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.
I'm really enjoying the series. It's interesting and I just love the characters. :-) I am SO GLAD they brought back Marguerite to narrate. The pronunciations and character voices you've come to love are there again. :-)
