Powerful and charismatic, Raphael is a Vampire Lord, one of the few who hold the power of life and death over every vampire in existence. Thousands call him Master and have pledged absolute loyalty on their very lives. But when, in a brazen and deadly daylight attack, a gang of human killers kidnaps the one female vampire he'd give his life for, Raphael turns to a human investigator to find his enemies before it's too late.

If you like paranormal romance with a lot of action, then this is the listen for you. It definitely is an entertaining listen. I'm sure the remaining stories will be just as entertaining. I would venture to say that Duncan's Story should be good.

If I had to critique anything...I would say that at times I felt like it was almost like two storylines going on. One is a blooming love story; the other being an action-packed crime story of which both scenarios involve vampires.

In either case, I am looking forward to book number 2.

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world-famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn't plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn't count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she'd ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls - especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn't end well.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The first one (Lick) was good; but, this one was so much better. Mal, while pained, is a hoot. I love the banter between him and Anne.

Hopefully there will be more installments to come. Preferably with Ben and Nick's characters.

Definitely worth the credit or just outright buy it.

This installment takes drama to a whole different level. Lanie's emotional baggage would drive a good man to his knees fairly quickly. She's a self-proclaimed "drama queen". Believe me, no truer words were ever uttered. When I wasn't rolling my eyes at the drama parts, I found I actually enjoyed the book. Alvira's small cameo in this one was tame compared to previous books; but welcomed all the same.

If you are a fan of KA, take a chance.

Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

I have been waiting so long for this series to come out in audible format. Like the books, I'm sure the adrenaline rush will be just as exhilarating. In KA's RC series, not only are there the expected "man candy" badass characters' but also strong female character representation.

Indie and Lee's story sets the foundation for many entertaining stories to follow. All I can say is just sit back and enjoy the ride. You will be so glad you did.

Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart - and her virginity - to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's stepbrother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten. She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious - her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger as Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands.

I am fast becoming a fan of Joanna Wylde. The story was well written and entertaining. I know that "property" and "woman" are supposed to be synonymous; but I'm still having a little mind-meld over that one.

The supporting characters were instrumental to the storyline. I'm hoping the next installment will be Em's story.

Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

The reviews drew me in and I'm so glad I took a chance on this book. It was better than I had anticipated. Don't get me wrong, I am still trying to wrap my head around the "Property" jargon; but the overall love story wins out.

I think Stella Bloom did a great job narrating. I'm eagerly anticipating diving into the next installment, "Reaper's Legacy".

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

Great Love Story! You definitely won't be bored with this listen. Don't get me wrong...there are a few far-fetched moments; like the lead female character not remembering ANYTHING like GETTING MARRIED, but all-and-all, entertaining.

Supporting Characters set the scene for more installments. I will definitely be looking out for the next book on audio.

Definitely the Best of the Series! I enjoyed every minute of the story. It is raw, yet “real”. It was nice to have characters from earlier books make an appearance, especially Alvira. Kristen Ashley is definitely one of my favorite authors and Kate Russell’s narration is outstanding. If you are a fan of the series, this one should be an automatic download.

I swear, this series just keeps getting better and better. I can honestly say that I can’t wait to listen to this story again and again. I’m glad there is finally closure regarding the angst between Nick and Shaya. Although we love to hate her, I think we would all miss Greta if she didn’t make a cameo in each storyline.

Suzanne Wright, as usual, does an excellent job at giving each character’s personality depth. In turn, Jill Redfield brings the stories to life. Dare we hope for spin off stories from Nick’s new pack? One can only hope.

Again, I’m eagerly anticipating the next installment.

While I love the series, this one wasn't one of my favorites. The narrator made the dialog sound like every little thing was a suspense crime waiting to happen.

The new and supporting characters from past stories were a welcomed experience. I'm definitely not going to let this installment deter me from getting the next though. Most of the books are truly entertaining

If you are a fan of the series and need a quick "Argeneau Fix", then listen out of habit rather than expecting a really great story.
