Blane is sick and tired of being everyone’s emotional sounding board. It’s his gift, but they don’t realize how much it hurts him, and how exhausted he is. With the sickness taking over and Sophie’s impending delivery, he knows he’s in for a hell of a ride when she has the baby. When her water breaks a few weeks early, everyone is in a panic except him. He keeps it together for his queen. At the hospital, when things get too rough, he makes his escape only to run into the one woman he needs - his mate.

A short story, but lots happening. Blane finds his mate, Dallas, then almost lost her. With the nymphs, the witches, the pack of wolf shifters, the rabid dragon shifter assassin out for blood, no wonder the dragon shifter tribe is barely holding on despite most of them finding their mates. The story is a bit scattered, got lost a few times, but I was able to find my way back. Blane and Dallas get their HEA, but did she have to loose her sister? We are left with a few loose ends opening the door for the next stories.

I like listening to Mr. Brown's voices, although I had to replay sections at times because he spoke too fast for my ears.

I've spent my entire adult life avoiding dating, which is funny because I work for a matchmaking service. My boss calls me "The Beast" because of my no B.S. attitude. My job is to scare away problem clients - the unmatchables. In waltzes Mister Alfred Barnes. He's stuck up, brazen, and mouthwateringly gorgeous. Guys like him think they own the world, but in here I'm in charge. Kicking him out of my office is one of my greatest pleasures...until I find out that he totally lied about his identity.

I love listening to Ms. Kelly's voice and the main reason I picked this story and so glad I did. She idoes great with the various characters and their temperaments.

Talk about a twist, showing that not all is as it seems at first glance. It gets very emotional as Ember opens up to Colton about her life and my heart was breaking. Not sure I would have had it in me to forgive the brother or the parents. Colton is easy to fall in love with seeing how he treats her and helps her heal. It is a long road but they finally get their HEA.
Never did online dating, I had a few chuckles listening to Ember reacting to some of the situations. Loved the banter and the flirting between Colton and Amber.

I just wanted to cheer her up. She was upset, so I offered to take her mind off things the best way I know how: in bed. But damn it, one night with her wasn’t nearly enough! I want more, and this has never happened to me before. So I made her another offer.…

I really enjoyed listening to Ms. Mei telling Scarlett and Zach's story. Warm, rich, versatile, perfect for listening for hours. I will definitely listen to more of her narrations.

A good friends to lovers romance with likeable characters, but I wanted to smack both Zach and Scarlett a few times LOL talk about misunderstandings and assumptions on both sides that create quite a few bumps on the way to HEA, which they eventually get.

My first story from Ms. Vaughn, found it entertaining, with unique twists on the paranormal shifter genre. A good mixture of suspense, action, sweet and some hot moments along with hilarious ones too. Great chemistry between Ava and Damon. Granny is my fave secondary character, would have loved to meet her in real life :D Looking forward to the next story.

Mr. Kafer's voice is easy to listen to, versatile giving each character their own voice and voicing their emotions quite well. I really enjoyed it.

Waking up in hell is not Del Bellator’s idea of a good time. She’d rather be back on earth, killing demons and hunting down magical treasure for her shop, Ancient Magic. Turns out escaping hell is easy - it’s staying out that’s hard. Del's dragon magic is illegal in the supernatural world. Worse, she doesn’t know how to control it. And if others learn her secret, she’s dead. Things get ugly when the Warden of the Underworld shows up to drag her back to hell. He’s a one of a kind demon shifter - the sexiest, most powerful one she’s ever met - and he’s set his sights on her.

When I see a book narrated by Ms. Schroeder, I know I'm in for a treat. She does both female and male voices with such ease making me wonder is it really one voice. Her accents and portrayal of emotions are well done.

I am glad this series comes in boxset and I was able to listen to the series without waiting. I thought I will be doing it in sections, but could not stop because the story kept me coming back for more. An exiting world, with unique paranormal powers with the main character, Del and her friends, Cass and Nix, along with their friends battling the Shadows to save humankind. There is a budding romance between Del and Roarke, I loved Roarke and how protective he is of her.

My first book from Ms. Hall, and I am looking forward to read Cass and Nix stories.

No one knows why the district attorney is gunning for Susan Wilson, but Clint Wolf is determined to find out, even if it’ll get him in trouble. While he works to clear Susan’s name, his crusade is sidelined when a bar manager is murdered during an apparent armed robbery. The method of operation is eerily similar to those used by the ruthless gang who killed his family, and Clint might soon have to face down the demons from his past to solve the mystery.

Quite a story and with a twist, the human saves her vampire mate, the strongest lord in North America at that. I loved the story but the fact that Raphael allowed himself to be captured and how, is a bit difficult to believe. But then again even vampires can't shed all human traits and loved how Cyn proves yet again, that nobody should mess with her. Elka cracked me up with her sass.

I enjoyed listening to Mr. Russo's voice, so versatile, especially loved the ones he gave to the Japanese twins. He can really pull off the Alpha male growl SIGH

The entity who has been called the Witch Hunter is focusing on those who have psychic powers. He has issued an edict to the Tantalarians, demanding that they bow to his will. He has challenged the wrong people, though he doesn’t seem to realize it. One Tantalarian in particular feels he has an ax to grind with this Witch Hunter. This entity has mentally attacked Terec and singled out the woman he loves to use for his own nefarious purpose. He will not rest until his foe is dead. The game lines have been drawn; the war is on.

I thought when I read this story, that it was quite a roller coaster, but listening to it told by one of my fave voices, Mr. Callanan, who brings it to life vividly, his many voices unique to each character and reflecting his passion for the craft. The Witch Hunter challenges the one he should not have. Does he lose? I am happy with the outcome. Getting there is quite another story, Terec and Adele along with the inhabitants of Tantalus unite to fight an unseen foe and show us that despite their different backgrounds, love is possible. This series is getting better and better and I can't wait for the next one.

This story starts with high action and doesn't stop til the end. An interesting premise, got my imagination going and thinking this might be possible. A great mix of scifi and thriller and a touch of romance, this story follows Caitlin running for her life after her husband gets killed while talking on the phone with him no less and she has no idea why. Reaching out to John, an old friend living in the city she is in at the moment, they unravel the mystery getting to the bottom of why and how, but with great sacrifices. It all ends well, but the listener does not find out till the very end having to journey thru the twisted journey along with the characters.

Loved listening to Mr. DiLeonardo's voice, flexible to suit each character, a true story teller I could listen to for hours. Looking forward to more.

I really enjoy listening to Ms. Kelly's voices, she brings the story and characters to life with passion, making it hard to stop listening.
Different from other shifter stories, "The Fire Wolf" has some unique twists making it interesting.
In this story that mixes suspense, drama and hot romance we follow two couples, brothers and sisters, one wolf, one human mating and on opposite sides of the pack law. It all ends well for both couples though.
