Mining ash on a remote planet where temperatures reach hellish degrees doesn't leave Kal (aka Spark) much room for dating. Lucky for this hard-working man, a new corporation, Galaxy Alien Mail-Order Brides, is ready to help him find the girl of his dreams. Does it really matter that he lied on his application and really isn’t looking for long-term but rather some fast action? Earth women better watch out. Things are about to heat up.

I’m trying the next book because it’s cheap and short. But this really was quite boring and did not hold my attention. I just ended it and can only tell you that aliens come to America, don’t grasp the language and slang. She gets kidnapped he rescues her and we all live happily ever after. Yeah it needs reworking. This is my honest review and I paid for my copy of this book! It’s not worth a credit and really not worth $ either

Harlan Mundelein, the Knotted Wolf, the soldier at heart who used to be the guy who got things done, is fading. It's been a long and pointless battle, and he can finally see the day coming that he'll be eternally reunited with his Eventine. He's ready and his mind is made up: he is not getting a One True Mate. His mate is gone. So why does Leilani, a female who has mysteriously appeared to him twice in his lifetime, stir his blood in a way that makes no sense at all...especially when he knows she is not his mate?

Yes it’s hard to follow but I went back a book and re listened from about chapter 20 to the end and then began this one again and it fit so much better. Heck it was the next day and I sure didn’t catch that the first time at the beginning.
It truly didn’t mess up the second time cuz I tell ya I was 20 chapter s in and decided that I had no clue of wtf was going on and reread bruin’s book and the began again and tracked it the whole time. It was really great made you laugh cry hope and wonder. So try it more than once you’ll like it.
Great narration and a good story.

The story was a bit flat to me. Still worth a listen but it’s not really one I’d listen to again. That’s just me don’t let that stop anyone from listening to this book. Narration was better than some others but still there are better ones out there than yourself.

My dear lady you are a horrible narrator. You will sell more books if you stop. I’m certain that it sounds better in your head than it does to those of us trying to bear it
The story was very good. It’s short but to the point and flows well. You are a talented writer. Real narration would have given this book what it needed to be exceptional.

But his carefully structured world turns upside down when he meets a mysterious male who makes him want what he can never have.

fingernails on a chalkboard. where did you find this horrible narrator. he would ruin a nursery rhyme. he made this book nearly impossible to tolerate. a five freaking hour book should not take 3 weeks to get thru. ya know audio junkies tend to like the same narrator ( if is a decent one) to continue the series. I HATE narrator changes. this one was the worst I ever heard
the book was the obligatory m/m romance that everyone feels liked they should do, so ok. it was just short and to the point. I c where it could have been "stretched" but truly no need. it was pretty good.
I anxiously await the next installment of the series. I highly doubt I could listen to this one again just because the narrator was that bad. gaah! !!

As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs.

Thank you Fred Berman for the narration, you are the "voice" of the Dark Hunters, no matter what anyone else says!
Thank you for the emotional roller coaster ride Ms. Kenyon, I LOVED it. I love books that make one FEEL, and I sure did with this one too. Awesome!
