New fan of narrator, Coleen Marlo! She brought the characters to life, or she pulled me into the story -- either way, I enjoyed the experience. I liked the witty banter and playfulness found in the story. I felt like these were characters I'd like to be friends with. I look forward to the next book.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn't know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me. I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted - I knew who I wanted - until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

There may be people who enjoy reading about being dominated and controlled; I do not. It was difficult to stomach a "hero" with misogynist tendencies; and a seemingly strong, smart woman allow herself to be disrespected.

I was so looking forward to the continuation of the story, but Libby was so whiny and annoying in the 2nd part. She would make poor choices, even though deep down she supposedly knew better. Repeating the same types of mistakes made her appear less than intelligent, and a bit neurotic. Hard to imagine this was appealing or attractive to the hero of the story.

The narration was really good. I know in some of Le Veque's books, the narrator will actually sing the song portion in the story. There was a recording/editing error in one chapter where the narrator said something like, "Bloody hell, it's another song. I don't know this song." That made me laugh.

I really enjoyed the Seven Series and was really looking forward to this series. I was so disappointed in the "heroine." I went over a few chapters more than once thinking I missed something. It was confusing to read about her having some great power, but she couldn't protect herself. After awhile I wanted to punch her in the head myself.

The story didn't make sense to me. She came across as weak and dim witted. I did not enjoy this book at all. By the end of the book, I was frustrated and annoyed. What a waste of time.

Nicole does a great job with all the different characters, except for April's. April sounded sort of like Marilyn Monroe and was annoying. I think narrator was trying to sound naive, but April sounded witless at times.

Overall, I enjoyed the story and look forward to finishing the series.

Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn't for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even have seen her die. In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig "Vig" Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera.

It all started with a spell. Arran Conall lives with the consequences of his foolishness daily, his mistakes guiding him into darkness. He had no way to know that his beloved would fall prey to the ancient magic that awaited Blaire on the day he sent her away to marry his brother. Now, the only woman to ever give pause to his philandering ways lives centuries ahead of him, out of reach while still holding on to his heart.

It began nearly 400 years ago. The Conall clan and all their people were murdered in a surprise attack, their beloved castle and all evidence of who destroyed them burned to the ground with their bodies. In the centuries following, archaeologists searched through the ruins looking for any evidence of what or who had caused the untimely demise of such a powerful Scottish clan. All efforts were fruitless until a spell put in place by an ancient Conall ancestor finally began to work its magic.

Characters were interesting and believable! Bethany Claire does a great job giving each character depth (you feel like you know them); and Lily Collingwood did a fantastic job bringing them to life. This audible was reminiscent of the old radio shows --- before there was TV. Kept you engaged and entertained.
