What happens when a Bradford with questionable OCD, a temper, and a reputation for making his employees cry falls for the woman who refuses to accept the fact that he's fired her and was - terrifyingly - more of a Bradford than he was?

I'm so glad I found this series. A lot of fun bickering going own between Rebecca and Lucifer (Christian). Christian is nicknamed Lucifer because he's an a** and proud of it. Rebecca works for Lucifer and she pushes all his buttons. This book was funny and I enjoyed every minute of it. It kept a smile on my face for the entire 9 hrs and 11 mins.

This series is a great pick-me-up for when you want something light and fun.

Fran Jules brings these books to life and makes you feel like you're part of the Bradford family.

I have all 5 books and have listened to them several times. The Devil's Dust MC has the usual hot alpha males but it also has strong females. Yes, they are very capable of murder and mayhem but it's in defense of the MC or helping someone. There's mystery, intrigue, excitement, fun, and of course sex.

M. N. Forgy has created a MC that makes you want to be a member. Like you're on the outside looking in. Excellent writing.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell bring the characters to life.

Absolutely worth the credit. Get the whole series!

Ricco Ferraro is a playboy, adrenaline junkie, and rope master. He has a dark past from an event that happen when he went to Japan as a teen. Ricco is holding rope modeling auditions in the family owned hotel where he meets Mariko. Mariko also has a dark past. Unknown to Ricco his and Mariko's paths crossed when he was in Japan. This is their story.....

This story has mystery, it's intriguing, and very hot. For me there was a disconnect with the car racing/car parts that's why I gave the story four stars. It's not as exciting as the first book Shadow Rider.

Christine Feehan's mystical concept of shadow riding is intriguing and exciting to me. I imagine it's like riding a roller coaster.

I can listen to anything performed by Jim Frangione he's just amazing!

Absolutely worth the credit.

The story of Jenny and Griz comes full circle.

The first 3/4s of the book has a lot of excitement and intrigue. I found myself saying out loud 'what the f***! many times.

During the last 1/4 of the book I found myself disengaging from the book and fast forwarding thru chapters. This is because there is a lot of inner dialogue towards the end. I mean stuff we already know and have been told several times. It got a little irritating. Thank goodness for the FF button.

Anyway, the book is well worth listening to especially if you have the first two books this one is a must. The inner dialogue is just a pet peeve of mine most people don't mind.

Beth Flynn's writing is complex, emotional, and exciting.

Monique Makena gives a great performance especially with the male voices. Each voice is unique and character recognizable each time.

I absolutely recommend this book!

He tells you he's on a secret mission and needs you to pose as his wife so he will need to have sex with you several times so you smell like him. Question: Would you go for it?

I love this paranormal series. It's sexy, exciting, thrilling, cringing, and hot.

Renea Mason is a true talent. She knows how to captivate her reader. Noah Levine and Erin deWard draw you into the story and don't let go. Also the story is performed in conversation style which is my favorite.

Having survived the unthinkable, he never dreamed he would come this close to another human predator, let alone a female pretending to be his destiny.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. There's a good twin and a bad twin. The bad twin knows about the Celestial God's way of choosing a mate for the vampyr's. So the bad twin switche's places with the good twin then causes all kinds of havoc.

It's an exciting story that keeps you guessing about what's going to happen. In the usual Dark Moon Vale way the story doesn't disappoint.

Tessa delivers on point as usual and Eric's performance is riveting.

But when Glenda proves more resourceful than most of her kind, he agrees to see her safely through the Alaskan wilderness. He'll have to fight an overwhelming attraction to the inquisitive beauty every excruciating step of the way.

This story continues from book 3, Lorn. Veso is on guard duty and kidnapped by vampires. Glenda is human and was also kidnapped by vampires. Turns out Glenda is a very distant relative of the king vampire. The king vampire wants Glenda and Veso to mate so they can provide the king with his queen. Yah the king doesn't care about incest.

Glenda and Veso are held captive in a room with Veso chained to a table. Not to be released until the queen is born. Glenda manages to free Veso,they escape, and their story begins...

Veso is broody and Glenda takes not shi*t. The banter between these two kept me smiling. There's action, adventure and hot sex.
