Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments, splicing human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such "experiment" captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him - even if he hates her for it. Fury has never known compassion or love.

He vows to end her life but when she's finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

Wolf shifter Jaime Farrow has a secret. And no one - not her Alpha, not her best friend, and most definitely not gorgeous Dante Garcea - can know the truth. She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him.... As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it....

Suzanne Wright is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to see the new installment of the series. This is going to be a long running series. The author has a way of making you like and relate to the characters’ personality. The storyline is very similar to the last novel (Feral Sins: Phoenix Pack, Book 1<<< Read first, the stories do intertwine. These books cannot really be stand alone.) But she made different enough to keep you intrigued.

So in other words; if you like authors who can make her readers (like me) have a smile throughout the story and don’t mind heated blushing moments then this is a book for you. The narration was great. Jill Redfield gave the perfect amount of attitude to the author’s one liners. If you like werewolves (I do) stories that have to do with not the usual problems then you want to check it out. Strong, independent women who don’t take any brown stuff this is the right book. Sexy men and battles and sexy men ooops but should be mentioned more than once; just buy the book and save the credit because the price is better then right.

I hope you enjoy and smile ;o)

Where should I start. Well I got the book because its romance and paranormal two of my favorite things. (And let get real the price was not bad at all.)

The herion of the story is great. She is snarky and takes no lip from no one. She reminds of me:0) The series will be like other romances but what draws you in are the characters. There is a tragic alpha with a sad back story and the same sad back story for the herion. They need to learn how to open up with one another. Sound familiar. Well it is a romance. It is how the story is told. Well I think they did a pretty good job. There is also a lot naughtyness going on but again romance. The writer introduces a lot of character so I believe the series will be a long one. It kinda reminds me of the Christine Warrens series "the others" but this one only has werewolves. I enjoyed how they did not take a lot time explaining how "humans" know about them. I think it takes away from the characters' love affair when they start talking about how socity reacts to the paranormal. They also did not wallow in the unhappy childhoods the characters had.


All in all it is worth the money and the free time. There are a lot of steamy love scene, a lot dirty talk, strong female with a soft spot for her man, sexy dangerous men, funny one liners (my opinion), and werewolf politics.

I was entertain...I hope you will be too ;o)

Before she met Dragos, half-human half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now, she's mated, pregnant, and heading south to repair the Wyr's frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners, in more places than just the bedroom. In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be.

I loved Thea Harrison first book in this series. And the characters back!!!! I just want to say this book is not a stand alone you have to read or listen to Dragon Bound and then Oracle’s Moon. This book reference these books. But if you are para-romance fan and want to get into a new series that will be around a while I suggest you look into the elder races series. It has not disappointed me yet.

I like when authors give characters multiple books in a series. Its like catching up with old friends. If you read or listened to Dragon Bound and loved it like I did you will love this one too. You get to know how the couple and unborn dragon baby is doing. I have a feeling there will be few more books with Pia, Dragos, and Peanut. (Figures crossed)

The book has romance and sexy men. Fighting and evil vs good. It gave a little about future books like who will be hooking up next. And Surprises about characters in Pia life (like her ex-sexy boss).


This book will keep you entertained. I hope you agree and Enjoy;-)

It's not easy being a girl. It's even harder when you're the only girl in a family of werewolves. But it's next to impossible when your very existence spells out the doom of your race.... Meet Jessica McClain - she just became part of the pack. In the vein of Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs, a new urban fantasy that rewrites the werewolf myth....

I am going to make this short. Loved the story, love the concept, but the performance not so much. The narrator is good but the her voice sound too young to me. Half the time I felt I was listen to a teen book. But the author made up for it. I really enjoy the story. It was different then your usual Werewolf books. It's not all about the romance their is an actual plot. But don't get me wrong their is some romance.

There is some yummy men, there is a strong female, father-daughter, sister-brother, and some fight scenes.

So if you don't want to get into a long series, this is not a book for you, if you can't get into an book if the narrator does not fit your imagination then look else where. But if you like have lore retold in a different way then check this out.

Hope you agree and enjoy good listens:-)

"Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own.

I was a fan of fifty shades but i read this book i turn coat. This book is so well written that you will not be able to stop listening. I like the fax that is it not all able a troubled man who is ready to fall in love. But of to messed up individuals trying to live as normal life with each other. There are a lot of similarities with fifty shades that you at times will feel you are reading the same book but the characters will say something or the writer will describe a scene and you knew that there is something different.

I also like that fact the sidekick/best friend has his own issues to work out. I thought the characters were likeable.

Give this book a try just so you can choose which one is better.
Sexy men, conflict, and mind involving story.

I think its a good read. Hope you agree and enjoy:0)

The first book of this series I enjoyed. I thought it was a little different. It takes dragon lore in a different direction. The books are tied to one another. So if you want to find a new series to look forward and will be long running then this the series for you.

It has everything a romance needs. Bad guys, hot guys, naughty parts, fights, tough chicks, bad vs good and so on...

The author gives hints of future or possible books. It addicting so watch out.

I hope you enjoy and agree :0)

I liked this story a lot. It has a lot of yummy Highlanders and strong women. This book is the first in a trilogy. Its about three brothers who's hearts were harden by loss. So we know what will happen they will find the women that will allow them to find love and what it really means. That is every romance. But what a true romance fan loves is how the characters get there. The author did a great job in telling the older brother's story. The narrator made it every entertaining.

It can be graphic so if that is not what you are into then don't read or listen to Maya Banks books. I think she is a good story teller with a lot spicy.

There are some fight scenes and highlander politics which I thought gave the book more depth.

I hope audible will record the other books. I would like to know what will happen next.

I think this book and book #1 are my favorite in this series. I liked this book for many reasons. I like the fact that the characters were likeable and interesting. Another thing that I enjoyed a lot was that the author gave you glimpses on the direction she is going to take the series. Through out the whole story their were hints of possible future book. Which involved my mind even more.

Their were a lot of unanswered question that will be answered in other books in series. If you are not patience to wait for the answers...this might not be the book for you. I don't think this book could be taken as a stand a lone. So I recommend that you start in the beginning.

They are sexy men...(of course there is its Thea Harrison Book). There is a lot Fantasy taken in different point view. ( I have read other books with Djinn and they were never portrayed like this. They are always unfeeling spirit creatures with no forms. Not at all lip biting sexy Kid loving males.)

I also love the female heroine struggles with being Oracle. The author give the character just enough whin but she did not make her a whinier. Some author over do in that area.

I hope you enjoy and agree :)
