After my brother was killed in a motorcycle race, I made it my life’s goal to end illegal street racing. Yeah, I grew up building and riding with him and his sexy best friend, Roni, but I couldn’t bear to watch these kids endanger their lives the same way my brother had. However, when Roni returned to London to take on The Palace, I forgot all about my mission and focused on her while trying to forget the one night we shared years earlier. Hell, who was I kidding. That one night rocked my world...multiple times. There’s no way in hell I’d forget that night.

Interesting short story. Even though I listened to it all at once it didn’t feel rushed or like anything was missing. The characters were well developed and I didn’t feel like anything was missing. Good short listen

What just happened! I was so engrossed in the story I didn’t realize it was almost over. When it ended I started banging on my steering wheel no no no! This series just gets better with every book, the characters more developed ,new allies are formed Wyn’s magic gets stronger, It’s crazy good and other then being so mad it ended I highly recommend it. If you have ever listen to Laurel Schroeder you already know the narration is amazing. Especially when she does Arc, Wyn has three other guardians, can I have him? If you haven’t listened to one of Laurel’s books why not?

Wyn thought everything would be unicorns and rainbows once she reached her mother's palace. The last things she expected were assassination attempts, the Summer King readying for war, and, worst of all, frilly dresses. But all of that is pushed to the side when one of her Guardians needs her help. They're hers. And she'll protect them while keeping her vow to protect the Realm. No matter the cost.

I absolutely love this series! I want to be Winter so I can flirt and spent time with her guardians. This book picks up where the first book leaves off. All though there seems to be just as much danger now that they’ve reached her mothers realm. The story line, character development, suspense and I think I’m in book shock after the ending. Laurel Schroeder’s narration is spot on! She moves in between the characters expertly and brings Winter to life as no one else can. Definitely recommend

First off, I am totally jealous of Sairalinde bearing able to bond and ride a dragon and she’s betrothed to the heir to Elven Kingdom. So yes, there are lots of dragons, magic, mages and elves a fight for who is the rightful heir to the kingdom. Fierce battles, funny antics, sweet romance, some steamy scenes and as with any battle some heartbreak. I loved the story and was immediately drawn it and didn’t want to stop listening. I did struggle a little with the names in the beginning kinda like we all did with Harry Potter but it didn’t take to long till I caught on. Definitely recommend.
When the book first started and the narrator was introducing the book and herself I thought oh no I’m not going to like her, boy was I wrong. I thought she did a fantastic job with narration, she brought the story to life and easily moved between characters

Wow what an interesting book this is. I love time travel and this was better then most. Not reading/listening to the first two did make it a tad confusing in the beginning so if you are in to time travel I would pick up at least the first one as I have no doubt you will be back for this one. For example it took me half the book to figure out if York was from the past or the future, it didn’t matter which it was as it makes no difference in the book I am just one of those readers who wants all the answers. Anyway. I loved the storyline, I can’t wait to get the first two books and meet Sandy and to find out York’s story. The ending was PERFECT! Definitely recommend

Wonderful story! First off I must say that the narration in this book is brilliant! The narrator does an amazing job moving between characters and bringing the story to life. Excellent job! The story is so entertaining I couldn’t stand it when I wasn’t able to listen. There’s action, adventure, a fight for the crown and twist and turns you won’t see coming and unlikely friendships that are formed as Illera ascends to the crown. Highly recommend as it is a great story

As with the first two I loved this book and couldn’t stop listening. I love the combination of past and present and Quinn’s ability to live the past by touching an object owned by someone deceased. I say live because that’s how it is for Quinn. She doesn’t see the past she lives it. I like that the author switched things up a little in the setting of this book. I could never get bored with the a book set in England but still I liked that she ensured we were kept interested. Family secrets were exposed, some worth murdering for. My heart was pounding for Quinn and her baby. The preview of book four had me screaming me for more

Once again Wendy Woodson is the only choice to narrator this series. She masterfully brings the stories to life

Alyssa Wayne woke up with a start. She lay there holding her breath, listening intently to the quiet. After a tense moment, she let out her breath, relaxed, and was just about to turn over when she heard a soft scratching noise. The next sound she heard had her sitting straight up in bed. She was certain it was the click of the front door. She sat paralyzed with fear at the certainty that someone had just entered her apartment. She was equally certain it wasn’t her roommate.

I’ve got serious book hangover! I have loved all the Alexander Ranch books but this one is my favorite. New love, tormented love and all the mystery and intrigue I’ve come to expect from Marla Joseph’s. And don’t even get me started on D.C Cole’s narration. He nailed it on every level.

Wow did I love this story! I was so worried, stressed, anxious, freaking out what ever you want to call it that I skipped to the end because I had to know what happened! Well that didn’t work out so well for me as the last words of the book sent me straight to amazon to buy the next book. I was literally listening to this book and reading book 2 her secret at the same time. Anyway, I was so pulled in to the story that I couldn’t even function. Nothing else mattered except Julia and the weird phone calls and letters and the murder. This is so well written and Tracy Marks was phenomenal as Julia. All I can say is get this book and get the other two as well as you won’t be able to stop listening
