Leah Buchanan's family has been in service to vampires for five centuries. Even so, Leah wants nothing to do with her family's legacy. But when she's summoned to her Selection by the Vampire Dominion, under familial pressure, she has no choice but to go. Lucien has been living under the strict edicts of the Vampire Dominion for centuries, but he's tired of these ancient laws stripping away everything that is the essence of the vampire. So he's taking it back. And this is because Lucien has been watching and waiting for decades for Leah.

Any additional comments?

I hated Leah! In the first 1/2 to 3/4 of the book I could not stand this 40 year old child. She got on my nerves and I wanted to smack her. She got better as time went on and Lucian and his family made this book work and the events that played out once his family came into the picture. I will get the next book in the series because the story line was good and the plot thickens still but I hope this leading lady is more likable.

Tall and thin, twenty-eight-year-old Bronwyn Palmer has become positively gaunt, a ghost of her former self. That self was - and still is - the wife of a rich, handsome executive with an ocean-view house and his own security staff. It was in that house, two years ago, that Bryce Palmer learned Bronwyn was pregnant with their first child. But Bryce’s rage over his impending fatherhood touched off a chain reaction of emotional and physical traumas that wounded them both.

Arranged marriages seldom happen in modern America, so Daisy Devreaux hates her father's ultimatum: marry the humorless man he has picked for her, or go to jail. It's not much of a deal for Alex Markov, the prospective groom, either. He's got no time to indulge an uptown girl. So Alex puts Daisy to work in his traveling circus, expecting the harsh realities will break her. Instead, he finds she's got heart enough for both of them.

All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago. Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to.

OK I just have to say Why I gave this book 4 stars when in many aspects it did not deserve them…. This book was not the emotional roller coaster I was hoping for I want something that would tug on the hart strings and make me cry or yell…. This book made me LAUGH!!!! 1st off Lannie in this book sounds like a foul mouthed high school girl but dear god the mouth and the comments made me laugh.. What a hoot... Noah I liked him he was very real and so were his actions and emotions for the most part, but I really got tired of hearing how huge his D**K was. But all in all it was a great book if you wanted to laugh…
P.S. Yes it did have some pretty hot sex!!!!!

For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...

If you could sum up Be Mine Tonight (The Brotherhood of Blood, Book 1) in three words, what would they be?

exciting, emotional, and sensual...

Who was your favorite character and why?

Prue.. She loved Chapel and when she realized and accepted how HE felt about himself and about being a vampire she continued to love him unconditionally....

Have you listened to any of Vanessa Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never, but I will be getting the next book in the series....

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't think there was a particular moment but what moved me was how Chapel saw himself and even though her had 2 people who cared for him tell him how they saw him he just could not see it.... "It is easier to believe the ugly things people say about you then the beautiful things that are true"

Any additional comments?

At first I really couldn't get into this book. The first half was just ok and I almost gave up but just couldn't because of the reviews that this book got I knew that I was missing something... Then the 2nd part of the book picked up and carried me away I connected emotionally with Chapel and Prue.... This turned out to be a great book for me because I love historical and paranormal romance and this had them both....

Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past-one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life.

What made the experience of listening to Tangle of Need the most enjoyable?

Lots of changes in the Psy/Changeling series... I love that we got to see more of the day to day lives and the building of relationship foundations in the Snow Dancer pack I just Love Love Hawk and Sienna!!! Riaz and Adria story was good I like the emotional pull it had on me I connected with Adria and that surprised me because in Kos I did not like her at all..... I have very mixed feeling about Riaz and Lezette... I am excited about Alice and what we will discover about her.... But the way the book ended and the Major Cliff Hanger!!!! Wow now that was enough to make m scream...lol

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Hawk, I have since the first book but now that we are deeper in the series I am very curious about Vasick.
