Hotter than hell and half of Alabama, FBI Agent Mac Callahan is thirsty for everything except love. Coming home to bust a white-collar crime ring, Mac intends to execute his usual practice with work and women - get in, get it on, and get out. Instead, he finds himself unexpectedly drawn to the legacy of his family, his plantation, and the charms of a Southern girl.

Alexandra Monzelle is a hard-fighting, heat-packing Seattle vice cop, and she's not much interested in being protected. Her short skirt and sex-kitten heels are tools to lure her suspects into talking about the deadly new drug hitting the streets. She can take care of herself and then some. Unfortunately, she can't seem to get that through to Kellach Dunne. Kellach is a fresh import from Dublin, and he's landed at the heart of a vicious motorcycle club that deals in guns, narcotics, and mayhem.

Would you listen to Wicked Ride again? Why?

Yes, I would listed to Wicked Ride again. I love the worlds Rebecca Zanetti creates. She also has a wonderful knack for writing deliciously alpha heroes. Her heroes always tend to come off overbearing and overprotective but at the same time are able to support their heroines' goals and ambitions.

What other book might you compare Wicked Ride to and why?

This series, The Realm Enforcers, is a spin off series to the Dark Protectors by Rebecca Zanetti. In the Dark Protectors Series, the alpha heroes were vampires. The first book is Fated. I also recommend Zanetti's Sin Brothers Series. It is more of a contemporary romance or romantic suspense series. The first book in the series is Forgoten Sins. Both series are available on Audible. I have listed to both and I highly recommend them.

Which character – as performed by Brock Thompson – was your favorite?

I loved (hero's) Kellach's Irish Brogue.

Any additional comments?

Warning: this is NOT a MC (motorcycle club) romance book. This is a PARANORMAL ROMANCE. The characters in this book are undercover in a motercycle club to search for the dealer of a deadly drug killing witches. Please do not read if you are looking for a mc romance. This book is filled with action and suspense. It has lots of steamy romance. The hero is alphaliciously hot! I highly recommend it!!! The hero in this particular book is a humorous, sexy witch. The heroine is a human detective. When the two meet, heat combusts. This book received four stars instead of five because I found the heroine's resistance to trust the hero irritating.

Being captain of his own rescue ship is the life Liam Synar has always dreamed of living. Being master of a hereditary demon is not. Coveting Malachi's power, his exiled evil brother hunts him to capture the demon that Liam's life mate unknowingly hosts. Putting Malachi inside Ania two years ago had been an act to save her when she almost died saving him. If only the demon hadn't killed again.

What made the experience of listening to The Demon Of Synar the most enjoyable?

i enjoyed getting to know the characters and the setting devolpment. This books is an introduction to a series and I look forward to reading more about the characters in later books in the series.

Any additional comments?

The story continues in Book 2, The Demon Master's Wife so there is no resolution at the end of Book 1. Just a FYI. It is worth listening to and waiting out the resolution, especially at $1.99.

In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this book and the rest in the series to anyone who enjoys witches, vampires, or were. Lots of action and entertainment. Harrison creates an intriguing world.

What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love the growth of the characters throughout the series and the new maturity in their relationships. While I hate for one of my favorite worlds to end, I could not have been happier with the outcome of the story. Harrison did a brilliant job.
