The family magic seems to have skipped over Tammy Jo Trask. All she gets are a few untimely visits from long-dead, smart-mouthed family ghost Edie. But when her locket-an heirloom that happens to hold Edie's soul-is stolen in the midst of a town-wide crime spree, it's time for Tammy to find her inner witch.

It really can be an endless summer — if you’re immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all — and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist — are many.

I purchased this to listen to the latest Sookie and for the Jim story by Katie MacAlister (I just love that big dog!) and what I got out of it was a few more authors I'm going to be reading more from! None of the stories are very long but they are all great! After listening to Ms. Frost's story about Cat, I immediately downloaded the first in her series and now I'm hooked! I'm off to look for the other authors too. This is definitely and 'Excellent' book!

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

I absolutely loved this book. I read/listen to a lot of vampire/werewolf/paranormal novels and romances and this one was great!!! A lot of action, some descriptive sex and a great character development. I'm anxious to have the next in the series come out on audio! I'd read the book but the narrator really made these characters come alive and I'd rather listen to the story unfold. I'm so glad this book has come to Audible!!

It's Halloween, and John Justin Mallory's partner, Winnifred Carruthers, has been so busy preparing for the biggest holiday of the year (in his Manhattan, anyway) that she seems short of energy and pale. Mallory is worried that she's been working too hard. Then he notices the two puncture marks on her neck....

This one isn't as good as the first. I really would have liked a little more dry JJ Mallory humor. I think it's worth a listen but the first is definitely the better of the two.

Jason Schuyler is a werewolf. He's also one of Anita Blake's best friends, and sometimes her lover. And right now he needs her - not to be a vampire hunter, or a federal marshal, or a necromancer, or even for her rank in the werewolf pack, but because his father is dying. He needs Anita because she's a pretty woman who loves him, who can make him look like an everyday guy.

I love Laurell K. Hamilton. I've been reading the Anita and Mery series since the beginning. She never disappoints me. It is a racy book, not for those faint of heart. It's loaded with sex and action!
My one complaint, the reader is slower than molasses! I had to put my Ipod on 'Faster' just to even listen to her!

Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate, Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend - what more could a witch want? But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

It would have been impossible for Molly not to take a long, hard look at the Impala in the parking lot: it's big, dark, and impressive. But it isn't the only thing that gets her engine revving.

This quick and free audible was worth the hour I spent listening to it. It almost seemed like the type of story she was thinking about making into a book, with 'notes' given before each chapter on what's to happen. It was a sexy story with a happy ending, still worth the listen.

I just finished the Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen and was looking for some more historical intrigue and medical beginnings. While the book started off that way it quickly started to be more of just a mystery. The medical parts fading away. I wasn't impressed. Not what I was expecting.

I was hoping this would be another steamy novel like Cain's Reckoning. Nope. I was disappointed. Not many sex scenes although the girl talks about it all the time, barely anything happens. If you're looking for steamy, this isn't it.
