If Saul Ade had known that stepping into his sister's life would make him a player in the goddess Allendra's unforgiving game, he would have never left the shadows. If he doesn't accept the mate she has chosen for him by the rise of the next Blood Moon, the Sídhe will become human. Unfortunately, the woman he must make his love is a mermaid who once tried to drown his sister's human best friend. If he'd wanted a mate at all, reckless Laurel O'Cuilinn wouldn't be it.

I am really enjoying this series. This one moves the story along a bit. It should be listened to after the other books as I don't think it would make sense otherwise. I loved that she gave the mermaid a HEA. Well worth a listen.

All preschool teacher Gillian Wright wanted was to pick up a third job so she could buy her students Christmas gifts. She didn't think she'd be the one getting picked up instead. Her new boss, Nicholas Roth, is the big man in charge at Santa Incorporated - what Gillian thought was a seasonal staffing agency. But the sexy CEO has a holly jolly secret. He's an equal opportunity employer and most of his staff are elves.

This is a stand alone story but it would be better to listen to the previous one first for the setting. It does not tie up any of the previous stories loose ends. One reference to a character in the first book. Not a perfect story I suspect some of the scenes about Santa’s job where cut out. But I suppose they didn’t further the story. Still I enjoyed listening.

The only thing that would have made this better for me would be adding a male narrator as well as the female one.
I thought there was a good flow to the story. There was romantic tension, but that wasn't the whole of the story as sometimes happens in romances. This is obviously the first book in a multi book story and as such is not complete in itself but it didn't end in a cliff hanger where you have to get the next book to resolve some scene -there are many story threads that are unresolved.
I will keep listening to subsequent books to see how it resolves.

I really enjoyed this book even more than , just the right amount of angst. Unfortunately at around 1.5 hours before the end of the book, I had to turn off my lights and try to do to sleep. I got up at 5am to finish the book before work. Couldn't wait. It didn't matter that I knew there would be a HEA. COULD NOT WAIT. Thanks Kresley and Kimberly for another great audio book.
I liked 'the professional' but I loved 'the master'.

I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

This is one of my favourite books. Zach's British accent had me on the internet to see if he was actually British he did the accent so well - couldn't find out anything about him. Andi also did her usual stellar job.
The troubles the characters went thru were realistic and not overly belaboured - as some romances do to the point of stupidity. I found the love scenes hot. Really this book was well worth while and I will listen to more from these authors. Great work by all involved.

My resignation letter was rejected by my boss with his sexy, trademark smirk and an "I highly suggest you read the fine print of your contract...." So, I did. And now I've realized that unless I fake my death, poison him, or find a way to renegotiate my impossible contract, I'm stuck working under one of the cockiest and most ruthless bosses in New York. Then again, I thought that was the case until he called me late last night with an emergency proposition....

Liked the story a lot. Sort of predictable. The female narrator had a slightly unpleasant voice. But I didn’t notice it as I got into the story. She has 90 percent of the narration. It was well worth listening to.

This book is just as great as the others in the series. Somehow the author gives enough of a different spin on each sibling to keep my attention. Didn’t want to stop listening. Thanks.

I don’t think I would have finished this book if I was reading it. The main character is so flawed it would have been difficult. But audiobooks and the terrific narration by Zachary Weber pulled me along. Well worth while. However listening to this book is not complete without the following book Cracked Kingdom.
