This one is one of my favorite books in the series. Love the sweetness of Silas. They have included a special extra at the end of the book so keep listening after the A Report. Hope they do this again. Very cool addition to the story!

Gabe Ali Rahman is the standby heir to the crown and he's okay with that. So what that he's gotten the reputation of being a playboy prince? He's had a lot of fun along the way. But now he wants more in life than casual flings. When his king asks him to negotiate a peace treaty, Gabe sees his chance to prove himself as something more than tabloid fodder. But when he rescues a woman from unwanted attention at a bar late one night, Gabe conceals his identity. He could never imagine the connection he would form, and the trouble that came with that little white lie.

I'll admit to being slightly confused at the beginning, as to the order of the story. I was having difficulty with the timeline for the first couple chapters but it cleared up quickly.

Love this story! Maybe not as well as Zane's, but it was close.

Highly recommend and you will love the twist at the end.

Tamika Cleary takes a wrong turn up a one-way street - and straight into Thibault Delacroix's leg as he steps into the road. But Mika's in a hurry, and she certainly doesn't have time for a guy who can't even look both ways before crossing, even if he does have a cute face, a body to die for, and the darkest, thickest eyelashes she's ever seen. Unfortunately for Mika, fate has other ideas. When she's threatened by her employer, a Russian mafia boss known as "The Thief", she's forced to accept Thibault's help.

Sky Brooks's life started with a death - her own. Sky spent the first 23 years of her life unaware of this, among other things. She always thought she was just a shapeshifter until she woke up in a strange house in rural Illinois - battered, bruised, and with only vague memories of her mother's death at the hands of vampires. At the request of a powerful witch, Sky is put under the protection of the Midwest Pack. But she isn't sure she can trust them, especially after she meets the dangerously sexy Ethan, a pack member who's known for being more ruthless than altruistic.

The story isn't bad but it didn't keep me engrossed. It definately did not leave me with a desperate need to read the next book. The narrative also felt flat. I had to speed up the narrative a bit to keep from falling asleep.

Nothing is more important to Blake Anderson than the work he does with his brothers at Ace Security. At least that's what he thinks until he meets the fiercely independent Alexis Grant. The security firm's new intern pushes all his buttons - and makes his temperature rise. But giving in to temptation might be risky business. Alexis can tell that Blake has his doubts about her ability to commit. But while most people look at her and see only a flighty rich girl, she knows he sees much more.

For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it's not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school...and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years. Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace.

The narrator made this a great audio book. They did an excellent job with making the characters come alive.

The story is now one of my favorites. I am a sucker for the books where the guy has to rescue his woman from danger and boy does she need it. Her parents are psyco and she has been emotionally abused all her life. When things turn dangerous, she doesn't recognize the danger until it is too late.

The sweet side of the story is how they were crazy for each other in high school but some extenuating circumstances kept them from exploring their relationship. It is years later now and,despite misunderstandings of the past, they are still drawn to each other but have some hurdles to overcome before they can find their HEA.

What a rollercoaster! This book pulls at all of your emotions. Even though it has it's slow moments you easily forget them when the heat turns up. A bit of a Cinderella story, despite some of the hopeless events that set the characters apart, this book too ends with a HEA.

I highly recommend this book to readers and the audio book is great too! It has made my reread and favorite audio lists.

Some small towns grow really good-looking men! This is the case with the four Chase brothers. The homegrown hotties are on the wish list of every single woman in town and Maggie Wright is no exception. Maggie has finally had it with the men she's been dating but a spilled plate of chili cheese fries drops Shane Chase right into her lap. The sheriff is hot stuff but was burned by a former fiancée and is quite happy to play the field. After Shane's skittishness sends him out the door, Maggie realizes that Kyle Chase has had his eye on her from the start.

The audio version is pretty good. It seems like woman do a better job of doing the male voices than the male narrators do for the female voices. None are perfect but male narrators tend to make woman sound either like old woman or give them higher voices than needed, making them sound funny.

Narrator was not bad but it is odd listening to books where the people are supposed to have accents but do not.

I did find that it was hard for me to like Alley. She seemed immature and flaky most of the time.
