Puma shifter, Del Santoni, has lived her entire life as the heir to a decades' old feud with the Armsford family - a struggle that ended in the death of her own father years ago. Since then, both sides have done nothing but fight and grapple for social power - and Del's sick of it. She's willing to do anything to end the war - even if it means dethroning her own family. Del begins a secret mission to recover the Maker's Mark. If legend is true, its symbols will reveal the name of the one true ruling family.

Romeo and Juliette have nothing on Zak and Del. Del is trying to find an end to the feud between her family and Zak’s and ends up needing Zak to keep her safe from those who want to control the outcome. Watching these two find each other and a solution to the family feud was a lot of fun.

Farrah had real reason to be afraid. She had to convince Vladimir, a police officer who had detained her for trespassing on the studio lot, to stay with her. She needed him just as much as she wanted him. She had never wanted anyone more. Vladimir had inherited the name. He used to hate it. Whenever Farrah said it, however, it was like a seductive spell, and he was under it. He was soon also under her. She had confidence in the bedroom but was careless with her life. She infuriated him one moment and enraptured him the next.

The reigning queen’s daughter will claim the throne uncontested unless those who remember and waited to awaken the wayward princess can ally with her.

I read this awhile ago and enjoyed it but the audio version is a whole nother experience. The narrator, Joshua Macrae, adds a delicious accent and wicked tone that adds an element of enjoyment I hadn't gotten from the book. Beware you will blush.
Slumber is the first in a new RH fantasy by Dagmar Avery and K. Margaret and a terrific beginning it is. We get to meet Princess Verity who has been living among humans her heritage unknown to her. We get to see her start to build her court and find her powers. I enjoyed the book but was left wanting more. Bring on the next installment.

Welcome to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where shape-shifters, vampires, witches, and dragons live alongside humans. The town formed around the mysterious energy rift in the bayou, which helps keep the town’s magic in balance. But lately the rift has been widening and destabilizing - threatening to send the town’s magical population into chaos. Energy witch Danica Teel has been sent by the League to figure out what’s going on, with the help of bear-shifter Mayor Zed.

Welcome back to Mystic Bayou! This time it is Mayor Zed’s turn to fall. I adored him in How to Date Your Dragon and was thrilled to see the big ol bear tumble. I love this series. I am always left with a smile on my face and a much lighter heart. I can’t wait to revisit Mystic Bayou again.
The narrators did the story justice and made it come alive.

Kash knows he'll never be allowed to claim a mate. A lifetime of military service has left him too battle-scarred and broken to be considered for the off-world mating project his rulers have created to save their people. His job is to make sure the more fortunate males get to Earth to retrieve their mates. All he has to do is pilot the ship, stay undetected, and keep an eye on things from orbit. It should be the easiest mission of his career...until he lays eyes on the one thing he never expected to find. His mate.

Kash is my favorite out of this series to date. Kash is a big scarred bruiser of a guy who has been put in the position of bringing two guys to Earth to pick up their mates. He’d love a mate but feels nobody would want a hulk like him. Gwen is feeling old, fat and really down. She’s lost her job, The dating service she and her friends signed up for says she is too old for them. When her BFF’s don’t check in from their dates she starts to freak until Kash shows up at her door. Then she has other issues to worry about.
I really liked Kash and Gwen. Kash is torn between duty and love and Gwen may destroy her future because of her past. This is a sweet and sexy romp.

Vadir has a business empire to run and no time to spare on frivolous endeavors. So how did he wind up on the far side of the galaxy to claim a mate he never signed up for? A matchmaking queen and a royal decree, that’s how. His plan is simple: meet the female, negotiate terms, and leave the primitive planet of Earth as fast as he can. What could possibly go wrong? This audiobook contains a bohemian blonde with a hell of a right hook and an interstellar tycoon who is about to learn that the best things in life can't be bought or sold, they have to be won.

Vadir is filthy rich. He likes and understands business. His king has ordered him to Earth to find his mate. He hasn’t the first idea how to win his mate. Lisa is an artist and former wild child she isn’t about to let Vadir put her in a gilded cage no matter how hot he is or how he makes her burn. This is a fun and sexy romp where despite their differences these two learn to become one.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, but a photo of Canadys Herrera leaves Judas speechless. After a failed attempt at a serious seduction in Savannah, Judas has the opportunity to rekindle a possible flame with the one girl that interests not only himself but his hound side, as well. The photos she starred in were a green light, and he’s more than focused on making her his. Especially when he finds out she’s the tour photographer for the summer tour Will It and Morbid Museum has set up.

Smoking hot paranormal rock and roll romance at its finest. This book is NSFW or any public spaces. You are going to want to be somewhere quiet where you can enter the sexfest that is Canadys and Judas. The chemistry between these two is fun and scorching hot. I recommend reading (or listening) at least Just What You Need (Men of Manifold 1) so you have an idea of who all these extra people are. I really got a kick out of Canadys. She is a strong, independent young woman who is comfortable in her own skin. Judas is a hot horn dawg who has met his mate and is better for it.

I’ll admit I bought this book as a way to help The Trevor Project and AIDS United and express my problems with Mike Pence. A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is an inclusive riff off of Marlon Bundo's: A Day in the Life of the Vice President, a children's book written by Mike Pence's daughter Charlotte Pence. VP Pence is notoriously anti-gay so this story probably put a twist in his panties. Bottom line; A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is a fun childrens story and a great way to educate kids about love in all its forms. I enjoyed it and think kids of all ages will enjoy it as well.
