Golden Heart and RITA Award winner Christina Dodd is universally hailed for her engaging characters and sultry romances. In Touch of Darkness, shapeshifter Rurik Wilder is in a position to redeem himself after a lifetime of killing for profit. There is only one problem: the beguiling reporter Tasya Hunnicutt. She is hunting for the group of assassins who killed her family, and nothing will get in her way—not even love.

I love this series by Christina Dodd! I had to give Richard Ferrone four stars on this one because his Scottish accent just wasn't there. I had to laugh every time he did it! Still a great book.

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.

I am loving Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series. I love a good ghost hunt and the way Heather combines that with modern crime is fabulous. Luke Daniels is a gifted narrator and I always enjoy his performances.

A couture wedding dress designer to the rich and famous, Lexi LaCroix's image means everything. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, her years of polish and hard work are finally about to pay off. But crossing paths with a sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker who makes her realize how much living she's sacrificed for her success, one touch is all it takes for Lexi to turn reckless. Jax Chamberlin has been screwed over by gorgeous gold-diggers one too many times. Though he runs his own stunt company, all of America knows his Hollywood face even years after he's given up acting.

He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually tense nights in hotels, and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

I cannot get enough of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland! Anytime I want to laugh out loud with a raunchy story, they are my go to gals. Michelle Ferguson was great and will look for more books with her. Wasn't sure about Aaron at first, but he got the vibe of the male character perfectly and was the source of many a guffaw. Loved the book!

I couldn't have scripted a more perfect night. For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I'm not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine - multimillionaire. But who's counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met. And that's why I'm eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge...bank account. Everything's coming up aces. Until the next day, when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash - a lot complicated.)

Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out. The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy - he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle. Then...Callie Carpenter comes home.
