Getting arrested wasn't on werewolf Ivy Kincaid's agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry...but the downside is the man she's come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. That's not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack's sworn enemy...aka her fiancé.

I started with a Miss Frost story and loved it, then went back to the first in the series and did nail order bride which I enjoyed very much. But Hank and Ivy was by far my personal favorite so far. Not sure why, just really enjoyed it.

You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

It is started off great. However, once I realized there was likely to be a lot of angst and sorrow, I decided I didn't want to read it. I think if you like apocalyptic stories, this would be a winner. Just not the type of story I enjoy spending time on. I'm more of a vamp/were person.

The start of the book was very slow and seemed to go nowhere. The sex was just sex and unimaginative at that. The last 5 or 6 chapters we're good, but I don't think good enough to keep going.

It's hard enough for Alastair Stone to keep his two lives - powerful mage and mundane Occult Studies professor - separate without an old friend asking him to take on a new apprentice. Especially after a university colleague wants him to investigate a massive old house for things that go bump in the night. Still, Stone figures it's an easy job: just turn up, put on a little show, and announce that the house is clean. Only it isn't. A malevolent spirit is reawakening in the basement.

In the city of Solantha, mages rule absolute, with shifters considered second-class citizens and humans something in between. No one outside the mage families are allowed to have magic, and anyone born with it must agree to have it stripped from them to avoid execution. Sunaya Baine, a shifter-mage hybrid, has managed to keep her unruly magic under wraps for the last 24 years.

this is more like the old radio shows that existed before tv. And the story had me stressed in the first 10 minutes, so I didn't listen any more.

I liked Fury and really don't like Slade (he just seems too stupid for Tricia). Valiant was great. I'm looking forward to Justice.
