When a video of her calling happily ever after "a foolish fantasy" goes viral, marriage therapist Emma Castle is out of a job - and off to Scotland. The tiny town of Gandiegow is the perfect place to ride out the media storm and to catch up with her childhood friend, Claire. But also in Gandiegow is the one man she hoped never to see again. She's successfully avoided Gabriel MacGregor since Claire and Dominic's wedding, only to find that he's now the village doctor - and just as tall, dark, and devilish as ever.

A devastating disaster has left the Forbidden Court in ashes, its fountains destroyed, and its magic at risk. It was destined as the site of Trynne Kiskaddon's coronation as empress. Now, all Trynne can imagine is the roar of flames, the cries of Gahalatine's people, and the smell of cinders in a city gone dark. Tragic as the threat to Kingfountain is, it's nowhere near as foul as the treachery posed by Morwenna.

This is been a long wonderful road I love the whole king fountain Series. This book wraps up a lot of the storylines. It also breaks the chain that they discussed through the book, how time keeps on repeating itself. I do not want to give away the ending but this book is well worth reading. You must start from the beginning or you will not understand it if you start with this book. Definitely not a stand alone. If you have not read this series this is a perfect time to get it because you do not have to wait for each book to come out .

College. A time of transition from youth to young adulthood. New lessons, new responsibilities, new distractions. A period of life treasured by most. Unless you happen to attend an institute of higher learning where the bullies are werewolves, the teachers are sadists, and the pretty girls are all deadly. A school like that demands a special kind of student, someone with the skills and power to survive. Someone like Declan O'Carroll.

When the road forks, how do you know which path is the right one? Raven Black hunts evildoers for fun, but her vigilante justice isn't the only reason she's hiding from the law. Half vampire, half mage, she's spent years living as a rogue to stay alive. When a Russian shifter offers her a job in his covert organization hunting outlaws, dignity and a respectable career are finally within her grasp.

I absolutely love dannika dark everything she writes but I have always had a soft spot for Christian. Is this going to be the story for his happy ending or is he going to step back and in this series will Raven go to Nico. I guess I will have to wait for the rest of the series. I really like all the new characters it is set in the world that dannika dark is already made just a new set of characters they all work together to get the bad guys that the law can't quite catch I'm sure there will be several interesting storylines on this one. let's see who is on team Christian or team Nico I am pretty sure that is going to float back and forth a little. awesome read is always love narration can't say good enough stuff about this duet.

Where does Silver Linings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love the Rose Harbor series

What did you like best about this story?

What I like about this series is that there are different people that come in and out of it, you get updates on their lives and what happens to them. But there's also the constant characters that you love. You get to follow their lives and see what happens with them so it doesn't concentrate on just one thing. The story doesn't actually stop you do get answers about what happens to the characters that have been in previous books unlike some supporting characters you never know what happens to them. My only complaint is I have to wait a year and oh what a cliffhanger this was I do not want to do any spoilers the first day of a book, but you get to find out a lot about Mark. All you mark lovers will be happy about that.

Have you listened to any of Lorelei King and Debbie Macomber ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes I have listened to other books in the series and several different Lorelei king audio books as usual Lorelei king does a wonderful job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I listened to this book in one sitting I have been waiting for this to come out. I have been following this unorthodox romance between Jo Marie and Mark and I was so wanting them to be together now there's another cliff hanger and we're going to have to wait to see what's going to happen again I don't know if I can wait another year.

Any additional comments?

Definitely credit worthy some parts with the two girls in this book seem kind of immature and silly but all in all I love the book and will buy the next one as soon as it comes out because I want to know what's going to happen in Jo Marie life.

What did you like best about this story?

That Sookie has came into her self

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

Yes she is great

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

The divorce at least Eric took care of her by giving her protection if the series was still going I would have believed that it wasn't over between them OH WELL .......

Any additional comments?

I love the Sookie books. I will miss this series. I can't say I didn't expect Sam to get his turn with Sookie, it has been going that way. I just really liked her and Eric, together they brought out the best in each other. The book touched on some character's that I would have loved to hear more from and others I could have done with out. At least there is going to be a book coming out in the fall that going to tell what HAPPENS! !
