London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work, and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face. But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.

Fixie Farr has always lived by her father’s motto: “Family first”. And since her dad passed away, leaving his charming housewares store in the hands of his wife and children, Fixie spends all her time picking up the slack from her siblings instead of striking out on her own. When a handsome stranger in a coffee shop asks her to watch his laptop for a moment, she not only agrees - she ends up saving it from certain disaster. To thank Fixie for her quick thinking, the computer’s owner, an investment manager, scribbles an IOU on a coffee sleeve and attaches his business card.

This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

Definitely a transition story for the series. At least I hope it isn't the last book!? I felt like it didn't flow and the characters lost some of their likability. Each character was isolated for most of the book and I missed the camaraderie. During the isolation each character experienced self discovery, to ad nauseam... I feel like this will be a transition story in this series because it sets up for a great next adventure with great character development potential! I think changes in relationships open up the story line for the future! I hope Granuaile learns she is just as capable of "cocking up" as Atticus in the next chronicle! But the books need to be more about the Iron Druid and characters coming in and out of his story. I miss that. I am obsessed with the series and don't want it to end! Excited for the next book in the series, Armed? Handed? Gripped? lol P.S. Never let anyone but Luke Daniels narrate these books!!!

The beginning if the book leads you to believe it will be about Sophie and her family then she dies. the story then follows a different family's members and jumps big gaps of time with no rhyme or reason!

Oberon the Irish wolfhound is off to Portland to smell all the things with canine companions, and, of course, his human, ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan. The first complication is an unmistakable sign of sinister agendas afoot: a squirrel atop the train. But an even more ominous situation is in store when the trio plus Atticus stumble across a murder upon arrival at the station. They recognize Detective Gabriela Ibarra, who's there to investigate. But they also recognize the body - or rather that the body is a doppelganger for Atticus himself.

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around - and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old, he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

I HATE the way they DON'T wrap up the story line basically holding you hostage for the next book. It ruined a great story by not wrapping everything up and presenting a good hook for the next book. Most series end each book in a way that completes a saga and gets you ready and excited for the next adventure...this just leaves you hanging in the middle of an angst filled scene with no closure! I read series all the time but this made me irritated enough to skip the next book. Total rip off!!!

Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.
