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.

When their last outgoing flight is cancelled, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single-engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley, knowing that she needs to get home just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack, and the plane crashes into one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

I listen to books while driving an 18 wheeler to keep me entertained. Usually love this series. The storyline is very good, but the reader is so monochromatic that I have had to turn it off or almost fall asleep twice now!
I'm not sure when I'll finish it, but not while I'm driving.

One thing I've learned about running a shelter for paranormal creatures, you can't afford to let your guard down. It all started when I welcomed an enchanting new guest to my plantation. Strange things started to happen. Well, more strange than usual. I was caught off guard by some conflicting feelings, and it spurred me on to get Brad, the love of my life, committed. To moving in with me, that is. In any case, I was willing to do whatever it took: love spells, black magic, and something so naughty I'd rather not mention it here.

Donna Carver gives us a funny and interesting look at the trucking industry and the trucker's wild CB radio slang. She gets the ride of her life from the passenger seat of a "sure enough store-bought large car". She's stylin' and profilin', checking out the seat covers and watching the bushes for bears.

This book is for old timers who want to relive how it used to be.
Almost nothing is the same in trucking these days. Even when I got into it in 1999 most of these things weren't true. (And her boyfriend sounds like one of the guys who made things change so fast).
There is no story. It was mostly a "how to" book that has gone out of date.
