Wiping out humanity is his number one objective - until he meets her. Aramus has no patience or sympathy for the excuses humanity uses to hunt cyborgs down and eradicate them. He's put up with too much at their hands to ever forgive and forget. But all that changes when he rescues a fragile human doctor who refuses to see him as a machine. She teaches him that perhaps not all emotions are a weakness and that love can make even a cynical cyborg like him stronger. And for those who'd mock his change of view or threaten his female? Go ahead. His knuckles could use some exercise.

Stewart Glen, Scotland – 1514. Masked in a Gypsy guise, Broderick MacDougal hides his vampiric identity while seeking to destroy the man who slaughtered his family. When an old Clan rival ensnares Broderick in a trap using an enticing widow, he is compelled to discover if she is bait or an accomplice, and the cinnamon-haired beauty is his next conquest. Widow of an abusive husband, Davina Stewart-Russell clings to the only image that gave her strength during those dark times - the Gypsy rogue who stole her heart as a youth. After nine years, she is finally face-to-face with him again, but reality clashes with fantasy as she is confronted with Broderick's passionate pursuit.

This is a very well written story! The narrator is also awesome! He really made the story come alive! I loved his accent, it was perfect for the story and was just super well done. I was sucked in very quickly and then I didn't want to put it down. I had to find out what was going to happen next and how it was all going to work out. Broderick and Davina are very well written characters that draw you into the story. This world has been crafted very well and I loved the way that we were introduced and brought into the world. It's different but figuring things out wasn't hard and getting too much information at once didn't happen. It was done very well. Broderick and Davina meet when she is young and he foretells her going through very rough times but to hold on to an image of strength and not give up, that image ends up being him. He shows up years later after Davina has gone through years of trouble and Broderick's enemy has shown up. Broderick knows that Angus, his enemy, has included Davina in his plans but he doesn't know how. I really enjoyed how the relationship was grown and how things progressed in the story. There is plenty of intrigue and guessing going on and action to keep you interested in the story. There is a lot of sexual tension in this story and the sex would be considered explicit but it isn't often. Once you start reading the story, that will make complete sense with the characters and story line. I felt that this was a great start to the series and I can't wait to read the next one.

Maybe Charlie Rockwell should have thought a little harder before adopting the large, out-of-control rescue dog she saw featured on the local news - but, then again, her life has always been best with no waiting, no attachments, nobody to hold her back. Will Porter lives a life of order and routine, so, of course, he's miffed when a savage Rottweiler picks a fight with his golden retriever at the dog park. His anger quickly vanishes when he looks into the tearful eyes of the dog's owner - eyes that look strikingly similar to his ex's.

This was an okay story. I enjoyed it but something just didn't seem to click for me regarding the narrator. I can't quite pinpoint what it was but something was just off for me.

What did you like best about Desert Tryst? What did you like least?

I liked the two characters. I thought Susan did a good job on building their relationship.

What does Greg Tremblay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love the accent. It's spot on and it really made the story for me. I love the facets that he put into it, that you don't always read the same way.

Any additional comments?

This was a quick and enjoyable story. I listened to this as an audio book and really enjoyed it. Dima and Tom are good characters and the narrator did a great job with the accents for them. I liked the story. It's short and so it pretty much just focuses on their relationship and their figuring it out.
