Life in Devil's Gate is hell on earth.

This series starts out with a bang! I love the dynamic that Grace presents. A Witch with untried powers; thrust into the center of a paranormal war over Devils Gate. I was quickly drawn into each character. They were well developed and easy to fall for.

The narration was fantastic! Sarah brought great depth and personality to each and every character. I had zero complaints.

I would rave about this book in the PNR world any day but the fact that it is Reverse Harem as well makes it even better! I cannot wait for the next book to come out!

This was a back and forth Love triangle that was like a train wreck to watch. You could see the trouble coming but couldn't look away. The female was so back and forth on what she wanted that I started to get whiplash. Cheating is not my favorite in books but that is just me personally. I did enjoy the book - The middle was a little slow going for me but the end packed a punch. All in all, good story, damaged characters (but that is just part of the story) :)

Narration was great. A pleasure to listen to and good character voices.

Just because Wyn has changed doesn't mean that the war is over. Not at all. Angus and the Morrigan are ready for battle, but so are Wyn and her allies. It's time to fight for the Winter Realm and the balance that keeps the magic alive.

This was a great conclusion to the series. I enjoyed seeing all the character develop and come into their own. The plot kept me pulled in and entertained.

This was a great middle ground in the steam rating- it gives you a little glimpse of heat but also has fade to black type of scenes.

The narration was great. Well read- At the beginning of the series I remember that Laurel's accent seemed a little overwhelming to me but really, it did end up being perfect for the character and her background.

Great PNR RH series

Macey is really quite ordinary, if you ignore that she's a kelpie princess living on land. Still, her life is boring until she gets kidnapped by a man who doesn't quite know why he kidnapped her. Try and figure that one out. Thankfully, he and his two companions are prepared to help her find out why she can't return to Earth from their house in the Mists. Now the only problem is that Macey keeps getting distracted by the three mysterious and very sexy men....

This story was great! I felt like it was a unique story with great characters. I loved that it had a bit more heat in it that I normally see in Skye's PNR. I personally thought the collaboration was great! I look forward to reading more from this duo!

Narration was great! This was the 1st I have listened to from this narrator and was not disappointed. It was well read, entertaining and clean.

Great listen! Looking forward to book 2

This is one of my favorite series! The characters are flawed, complex and perfect! The story is the perfect amount of Alpha CEO, Light BDSM, suspense, plot twists and Heat! It kept me captivated the whole way~

Narration was perfect. Lacy and Jeffrey were a great pair! They brought these characters to life in a way that few others could. I couldn't picture anyone else as these characters. Fantastic narration all around. They both put so much feeling into their performances which keeps you drawn in and connected the whole way.

This is a steal for 1 credit!

"They say grief passes. They say the pain gets less. Well, I don’t want it to go. I don’t want it to stop hurting. The pain helps me function and get through the day. And it helps me focus on one thing: revenge." The Morrigan needs to die, no question about that. But first, Wyn and her Guardians need to find her. While the Realm prepares for war, allies arrive from unexpected places. But there are enemies hiding in plain sight who could stop the war before it's even begun. Can Wyn destroy the Morrigan without sacrificing the lives of her loved ones?

Need more! Of all the books, this one was back and forth with my emotions. watching the damage grief can reap to see new powers unfolding. I was quite twitchy at the end and now will be pacing until the next book comes out. Again, i would love a bit more heat in this RH but it is still a great story.

Narration is still fabulous. Laurel does a great job with all characters! Fantastic listen

Wyn thought everything would be unicorns and rainbows once she reached her mother's palace. The last things she expected were assassination attempts, the Summer King readying for war, and, worst of all, frilly dresses. But all of that is pushed to the side when one of her Guardians needs her help. They're hers. And she'll protect them while keeping her vow to protect the Realm. No matter the cost.

The Triune's attention is a deadly thing to attract. The world's oldest and most powerful vampire queens devise a plan to ensure the fledgling Isador queen is eliminated before she can call enough Blood to protect her. But Shara has already drawn formidable and famously powerful Blood to her side: Leviathan, king of the depths; Guillaume de Payne, the headless Templar knight; Wu Tien Xin, the silent invisible assassin; Nevarre, the Morrigan's own Shadow; and, of course, her first two Blood, Alrik and Daire, inexperienced, but extremely powerful in their own right.

For the first time in her adult life, Shara has plenty of money thanks to the Isador legacy - and she's not alone. Daire and Rik are devoted lovers, but they know other Blood are coming. Blood who may challenge Rik for the coveted alpha spot at her back. As her power grows, so does her hunger. But without fangs, she fears she'll never be the queen her Blood expect. More Blood means power struggles and complications, and she has no idea how to keep everyone happy. Worse, her dreams are quickly becoming something to fear.

I LOVE this series! It is an awesome Vampire Reverse Harem series with plenty of steam, plenty of suspense and plenty or intrigue. The characters and exploring their powers has been a wild ride. New characters are always being added and the story is constantly evolving. The writing is wonderful and have been me sucked in from the very start.

Narration is FAN-TA-STIC! Cassandra makes an amazing vampire queen! She has such a unique voice that is perfect and so enjoyable to listen to. Tristan is amazing as well. They make an amazing duo and have enhanced an already amazing story and added a whole new depth to enjoy.

Great great read for any PNR lover~
