Kit Colbana: assassin, thief, investigator extraordinaire. Now broken. She always expected her past to catch up with her but never like this.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

Jason Sutherland is a billionaire investor who has it all: good looks, billions of dollars, and every expensive toy a man could ever want. What he doesn't have is the one thing he wants the most: Hope Sinclair. Unfortunately Hope, the little sister of his best friend, was off limits. But when he finds out that she's getting married, he decides that he's staking his claim before it's too late, and it will take more than a little deception and risk to accomplish his goal.

It is hard to like a romance where the hero has no redeeming qualities. It just makes her stupid too.

Bear shifter Clover is steaming mad and ready to be fitted with a new pair of bearskin boots. How dare the sexy head of security for the McCoy clan forbid her younger sister from marrying his brother? His brother knocked the girl up, and he's going to do right by her, or her name isn't Clover Lulabelle Movie Star Windwalker Jones - which, unfortunately, it is. (Her parents were hippies.)

I really hate when the women are attracted guys that are jerks. It makes the heroine look stupid and desperate. It is hard to care what happens to either of them.

The first book in a bold new fantasy romance series by New York Times best-selling author Kerrelyn Sparks. Luciana grew up on the Isle of Moon, hidden away because of her magical powers. But when her father arrives, he offers her a choice: remain on the island or return with him and marry the Beast of Benwick in order to save their legacy - and her father's life.

The story was great, but the word "grimaced" was used way more than normal and it stood out because of the narrator's accent pronouncing it grim ACED. It was really annoying after a short while.

While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead - or to whom.

I will like this series, but I miss Jim Frangione. The new guy has a nasal female voice that is a little off putting. Not irritating enough to avoid the book, just not what I have come to expect from Foster's audio books.

They did not edit the recording at all. The narrator repeats flubbed lines and they just left it in there. I could only stand about 15 minutes before I had to turn it off.

Everyone's heard of the mysterious Moon Ghost Jaguars, supposed shape-shifting men who steal women as their brides. What they forgot to mention was that half-naked, ripped, and oh, so delicious, they always came in pairs - and turned into really big freakn' cats! But Carlie's not about to let these furry Tarzans dictate her future, even if they seem to have conquered her body.
