It's Halloween, Leigh's favorite time of the year. As a rookie witch with high hopes, she has a lot to look forward to. When a mysterious supernatural force meddles in her life, things take a turn for the worse. Hunter gets caught in the paranormal crossfire, and his very soul may be at risk. Leigh's job seems to have suddenly gone sour as well. The public school doesn't share this young teacher's enthusiasm for what they deem to be a religious holiday.

Seductive, powerful Lamia DuLaine is used to getting what she wants - and she wants Julian Talbot. From the moment she sees him in the hedonistic atmosphere of 1814 Brussels, she knows she must have the roguishly handsome lord, and nothing as inconsequential as an innocent chit of a fiancee will stand in her way. After all, Lamia has more than just beauty in her arsenal; a thousand years of living have given the DuLaine unparalleled expertise at manipulating humans, especially men.

The story is great. Claudys imagination in story telling is just one of a kind awesome. putting it in audio just makes it even more addictive!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them. why? Because the story just wouldn't be the same with out any of them.

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

Stevie is awesome. she brings it to life. You can sit with your eyes shut and really get into the story. also audible works great for multi tasking :)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Any of Claudys books i want to sit and devour in one sitting, so yes.

Ever wonder how much your life would change if you won a million dollars? Well, that fantasy is about to become reality for one lucky winner of the new reality game show The Haunting. Six people will enter the contest, but not everyone will win. In fact there can only be one winner. A drug dealer, an exotic dancer, a drug addict, an entrepreneur, a district attorney, and a rich kid are each desperate in some way.

One goal consumes Chazma Donnelly: find the dark sorcerer who murdered her parents. When the trail leads her to Ireland, she takes a job cataloging a private library. But she doesn't expect to find a manor house that eerily echoes one in her dreams, or an employer whose touch awakens a savage darkness in her. The attraction between Chaz and Jethro McBain is volatile, but darkness surrounds his aura.

If Leigh has learned anything this summer, it's that magic can be chaotic. Despite some headline-making disasters in her last diary, Leigh is eternally hopeful. With Four-bitten Fangtasy behind her, Leigh decides to write a little paranormal erotica with her newest disasterpiece, Bangin' the Billion-were. She even takes on a rehash of the popular YA dystopian genre in her novella, Regurgitant. It seems that even the editing of other authors' writing can make her unwittingly fire up her literal witchcraft.

What did you like about this audiobook?

Loved the voice. loved the real life drama.this was a completely new genre for me and it rocked.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I had the book on my TBR. I haven't had a lot of time to sit and read read as of late so I've been using audible. I have no complaints about this story. the story was great! Love drama confusion real life stuff. with a good choice of a HEA.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

She makes you think about the meaning of love. Soul mates. they do exist. no matter if you find yours or not there is one out there for everyone.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

I really liked her. but and i hate to say it but i only had a problem with her female vs male change over. they weren't much different from each other. not like I'm used to. but oooh how i loved and i mean LOVED how she got in to character!

Oy vey! Shit just got serious in Chicago. The Witches Union has discovered that Leigh Epstein has been dabbling in the dark arts, and now they want to become creative editors for Leigh's paranormal romance, "Four-Bitten Fangtasy", a book about a shape shifting-werewolf-vampire hybrid named Vlad. They definitely have something up their sleeves and they've assigned our young apprentice witch to a mentor named Gertie, who isn't quite up to snuff.
