Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.

I love the Phoenix pack/Mercury pack series! My only complaint, (thus only 4 stars for story), is they are a bit formulaic toward the end. Each man claims his mate in every way. Other than that, I love them. Jill Redfield is fabulously fantastically awesome!!!

So excited I actually figured this one out! Okay, I thought it was someone else, but then didn't. AND I wasn't completely sure until the end, but I guessed right. The true mystery is how Heather Graham keeps cranking out such incredible stories! Luke Daniels...I want to marry his voice. Lol! Love this series!

The 1940s: hard-boiled detectives and femmes fatale are box-office gold. In one iconic scene, set in a deserted museum, the private eye arrives too late, and the buxom beauty is throttled by an ominous Egyptian priest. Now: the Black Box Cinema immortalizes Hollywood’s Golden Age in its gallery of film noir tributes. But the mannequin of that Egyptian priest is hardly lifeless. He walks - and a young starlet dies a terrifying death. Movie mogul Eddie Archer’s son is charged with the grisly murder.

I adore this series! I thought I had the culprit all figured out, but I was in for a Surprise! Heather Graham does an amazing job of writing about real crime while combining it with the supernatural. So entertaining. If I had my wish, Luke Daniels would read ALL my books to Me! He is mega talented and his voice makes me swoon.

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now. Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

I found The Restorer by Amanda Stevens in an email from Audible. It sounded like an interesting book, so I tried it. I loved it! I had never heard of a graveyard restorer, so I also learned a lot about that process while trying to solve the mystery. I had never heard Khristine Hvam perform before, but really enjoyed her narration. Will be going further into this series for sure!

Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.
