In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.

The man on Locke's arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new "it" model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell us the men met on the set of Locke's upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that "they only have eyes for each other." This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.

Myrtle - I’m a just an erotic woman who likes control. And edgy sex. And hard men. At the same time. So starting an outreach class at the TDH community center to teach other women how to put the dom in dominatrix was inevitable. Even if I was only doing it to use my boss, Pierce, as my submissive example and pay him back for humiliating me in front of the whole world last summer. Pierce - I regret what I did to Myrtle. She’s the best assistant I’ve ever had and I’ll play along - for now - because I want to make things right. But … come on. Me? A submissive? Ha.

Excellent second book in the TDH series! (Tall, dark & handsome) there are several true LOL scenes in this book as well as plenty of time to fall in love with the characters! As always, Anne Pepperidge and Tad Branson steal the show with phenomena narration, I keep forgetting I’m listening to a book and think I’ve closed my eyes and drifted into a different world.

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity - which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person stark-raving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.

This series has finished with a bang! Summoned to Thirteenth Grave wrapped up the Charley Davison story nicely. Like her last 12, Darynda Jones takes us on a hilarious roller coaster ride of suspense and elation! Lorelei King is one of the best narrators out there, you really forget you are listening to ONE person!

This is not your typical ménage romance, this is twisted, dark and angry... the storyline twists and turns, the characters are not sweet and easy to love, and in the end you will be angry that you have to wait until the next book to discover more of the story!! The narrators are wonderful, Luke Jackson does a great South African accent, Ava Erickson adds so much depth to her reading and Tad Branson... He makes me forget that I am listening to an audiobook and places me smack dab into his characters head!

I’m just a simple girl who likes dessert. And sexy men. And social media. So starting an anonymous video channel called The Sexpert as a side hustle to make up for my low-paying marketing job at Le Man Magazine seemed like a perfectly sensible career decision. Until we went viral, my boss accused my anonymous personality of stealing his idea, and now my super sexy new boyfriend, Andrew, is out to get me. Her. Me. Whatever.

This new collaboration between JA Huss & Johnathan McClain is charming and fun. The main characters, Eden & Andrew, are lovable and quirky from the first few chapters. I found myself giggling, smiling and often laughing out loud. The “rock wall” incident sealed the deal for me! The amazing narrators brought this book to life. It’s almost like being inside Andrew and Edens head, listening to their thoughts, rather than having a story read out loud. Bravo HussMcClain, I’m eagerly awaiting book 2 in this series!!!

He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings - some corporeal, some not so much - as she struggles to right the wrongs of society.
