Growing up, Bianca St. Ives knew she was different from all her friends. Instead of playing hopscotch or combing her dolls' hair, she studied martial arts with sensei masters and dismantled explosives with special-ops retirees. Her father prepped her well to carry on the family business. Now a striking beauty with fierce skills, the prodigy has surpassed the master.

What did you love best about The Ultimatum?

I don't usually write review but this author deserves a stellar one. She wrote about a women protagonist who never gave up her power, and never gave up. A character eminently likable. I'm so tired of reading books we're the man swoops in and saves a woman.This book the woman saves everyone.

What did you like best about this story?

There are too few authors that provide us with strong women role models. My only comment is "Write faster". I'd like to have the sequel now.

  • One True Mate 1

An all wolf-shifter police force has been the only thing between humans and an unknown evil for centuries, but the pack is in danger of dying if they don't find their promised mates soon. It's a race against time to find the angel/human hybrid "One True Mates" that the pack's spiritual leaders say truly exist. Steamy. Light swearing. High heat. You've never experienced a shifter romance like this before.

The story might've been more interesting if the narrator wasn't so absolutely terrible.

The lack of inflection the narrators voice made this a very difficult story to listen to. And increase volume doesn't mean inflection or acting. I will not be doing book to
