Werewolf Braxton Devereaux would do anything to protect his mother from his abusive father, even commit murder. Or so everyone assumes. Pack Law justice is swift and unforgiving when it comes to murder, and soon werewolf assassins are out to balance the scales - Braxton's life for his father's. On the run, Braxton flees to the anti-extradition state of Missouri on his Harley, but before he crosses the border, he is felled by an assassin's bullet - and an unsuspecting blonde.

I chuckled at book 1. I outright laughed at this one. So many wonderful moments. The wrap-up of the suspense felt a bit like an afterthought, but I honestly didn’t care. It was still fabulous.

A book that reminded me why I love shifter books so much. Beautifully written and utterly captivating, BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON didn’t let go and left me wanting more. Add to that Jeffrey Kafer’s delectable growl and stomach-tightening timbre, and you have one hell of an audio winner.

This is the first book I've listened to in ages that I found excuses to keep listening to. Normally, I'm a start and stop kind of gal, but I literally hurried through anything that was an adult responsibility just so I could get back to it.

In addition, I should mention that I normally like narrators who do voices. Jeffrey does not. And I didn't care. He changed it just enough for the listener to differentiate, and his voice is absolutely perfect for Jodi's sexy, alpha, hot-and-steamy yet action-packed Arkansas Werewolves.

If you love shifter novels, I highly recommend this book. It's everything we all love in a beloved read paired with an author's voice that I dare you not to fall in love with.

Would you consider the audio edition of Wyvern's Mate to be better than the print version?

I'm a huge fan of Deborah's dragon books, and when I heard she was doing a new series with women dragon shifters, I was very intrigued. I love the sci-fi feel of these, with the dragon realm being on another planetary realm, and Deborah did an amazing job with the romantic tension in this first installment of the Dragons of Incendium.

Drakina must join with her prophesied carrier and conceive a son who is set to be the crown prince and the savior of their planet. However, the dragon princess has no intention of staying with the human once she's gotten what she's after. But when she gets to know him, she realizes that Troy is her heartmate, not just her baby daddy. Unfortunately, the man's intentions for the princess are nefarious.. He's bartered to get out of prison in exchange for the dragon's life. But once he meets her, he knows he'll never be able to do it, and his life might just be worth a few moments of pleasure in her arms.

Drakina and Troy's journey of discovery is rife with surprises and will keep you riveted. The only reason I didn't give the book the 5th star was because it was very short and left me feeling as if the story were rushed a bit. Someting to be expected with novellas, however. I'm looking forward to listening to more, as Saskia is perfect for the narration of these tales!
