Star football player, Jack Miller, had it all. The perfect family, looks, girls hanging on his every word, and the respect of most people in his town. But one thing was missing--a man to be his own. When Andrew Collins showed up in small town, conservative Sweet, Georgia, he looked more scrawny mutt than high school senior. Andrew's plan was to keep his head down and graduate high school, leaving his family behind to start his real life.

The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

On this book I took a Gamble with the new writer and a new reader you don't know what you're getting into. But this book was a very pleasant surprise. Good plot, good reader and a very well put together book. It was refreshing, fast pace, and will develop characters a enjoyable new book.

Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

I got this book on a whim totally out of my norms, but it was a fun ride. I'm unfamiliar with this author but I will be buying more books with his name on it. I only wish that he had more books listed on Audible and that the reader he got read more books that were for sale she didn't incredible job you will not be disappointed the author match the book impeccably with an incredible narrator. Outstanding job I give both of you a bow.

On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral.

Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier.

I really like that each of these books focus on a different warrior. That being said, if you have not read Desire Untamed, you will have a hard time following this book. So much happens in the first book that you really need to understand the world that Pamela Palmer has created before diving into this one. While I thought the first book in the series was good, I found this one amazing. I'm not sure if it's because I know more about the Feral Warriors world or if it's simply because I adore Tighe; he is by far my favorite character and OMG look at that cover! Looking forward for the next book, Passion Untamed, so I'm forced to wait. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in paranormal romance and/or about shape-shifters. Pamela Palmer has created a very interesting world and I can't get enough

Rob Shapiro, did a great job in narrated this book:)

"Why me? Why now?" That’s what Beaulac, Louisiana, detective Kara Gillian was asking herself when an angelic creature named Rhyzkahl unexpectedly appeared during a routine summoning. Kara was hoping to use her occult skills to catch a serial killer, but never had she conjured anything like this unearthly beautiful and unspeakably powerful being whose very touch set off exquisite new dimensions of pleasure.

I am an urban fantasy addict. Lately, I have been restless and unfulfilled. I'm always desperately looking for new material. Unfortunately the results have been less than stellar and have left me totally disillusioned. So, I decided to take a chance on Mark of the Demon and boy, was I pleasantly surprised. I loved Ms. Rowland's writing style and the quirkiness of the main character, Kara Gillian. It was refreshing to see that the Gillian was not only strong but embraced her vulnerabilities as well. For once in a very long time I did not know who the killer was until the very last minute and was totally shocked and surprised.

Liv Anderson, did an outstanding job narrating this book :)

For as far back as she can remember, Airiana Ridell has always been aware of her extraordinary gift. She can intuit revealing and illuminating "patterns" in the air around her - whether in a spray of mist, in billowing clouds, or in the dense swirls of an impenetrable fog. Her abilities led to her placement in a secret government training facility when she was a child, but everything changed after her mother was murdered.

This book was thrilling and heartwarming story. Great plot because it kept me on the edge of their seat with lots of suspense, drama, action, romance and magic. Christine Feehan brings this fascinating to life with well written scenes and details and well orchestrated and believable action scenes that capture the imagination. I was happy by her ability to grab your attention and doesn't let go and the strong connection to all the charming characters of Sea Haven adds lots of depth to the story.

The chemistry between Max and Airiana radiates strongly, but the relationship will take a lot of work. Maxim doesn't believe he is worthy or that he even knows how to love and his past definitely stands in their way. For such a traumatic past and the sharks circling, Ariana is full of strength and courage and she has enough belief in Maxim for them both.

Christine Feehan brings you into wonderful and magical worlds with all her books and this one is no different. It gives the reader’s everything they could possible want in a story, romance, family, loyalty, community, danger, travel, courage, overcoming adversity, and the mystical and I can’t wait to read the next one.

Phil Giganet is the Best!

The last thing Sid remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, he was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, he was saved - pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. Soon they will be bound by tantalizing secrets, which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of passion and danger.

Well, Christine Feehan knows something about what women want, and what is the essence of romantic fiction. One man, filled with purpose and integrity and courage, whose entire life centers around one single woman....his lifemate. He would kill for her, die for her. This theme, which is repeated over and over again, is incredibly romantic. It works. It makes for extremely satisfying.

Angala Brazil did a very great job with the narration of this book:)
