Nestled in the shadow of the Appalachians is where Gwen Ashby stumbles upon the William Marshall Academy, and she's given a trial position as a literature teacher. The gothic boarding school seems trapped in time, yet it feels like home the moment Gwen arrives. She's charmed by the lovely buildings, bewitched by the eager students...and utterly seduced by the headmaster. Edwin Yorke is noble, handsome, and infuriatingly proper. But his tweedy exterior and courtly manners conceal a raw, sensual power.

This is a well written book. I can tell you that it will keep your interest from beginning to end! The story line is one that I've not heard before. The narration is perfect.
Headmaster is a story showing the results of one person actions and what can result in that. It's a book about forgiveness, of choice, and of love.
There may be subject matter that not all will agree is acceptable, however it doesn't change the end results of this book of lessons learned about life.
I would recommend it. I wouldn't regret using a credit or money on this book.~~Mona~~

Chloe Ellis' decision to celebrate the end of a turbulent relationship sends her off for a weekend of hiking and bonding with Mother Nature. When a rainstorm strikes during a spontaneous mountain climb, she has no choice but to seek shelter - and become hopelessly lost within a dank and dismal cave system. There's one more problem: her golden-eyed, incredibly sexy rescuer isn't the average hiker. He's also a dragon.

If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you'd have. With her I am the mark, and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her I will bring the world down around their ears.

This book by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick was well written that drew me in by the rarity of it. Daisy and Nikolai couldn't be larger opposites to one another, outwardly anyway.
One a killer, and the other an extremely sheltered 21 year old by a father burdened by horrid past events that freeze him inside his home. He inflicts this abnormal lifestyle on his daughter and finally at 21 she gathers the confidence and money to leave.
Nikolai was a victim of a lifestyle in the Ukraine that develops him as a paid killer. And, he's a good one, making more money than he even knows how much, and an ability to read the emotions of people in such a way that he offers mercy of a sort.
JC and JF, justify wrong (killing) acceptable and join together these two people who need one another and are the answer each need. Nikolai's love for Daisy is touching, sensual, and giving and the creation of the narrative of the sensual experiences between the two is more touching and arousing than any I have listened to before.
The narration from both narrators is excellent. Iggy is someone who I've never listened to, but his voice is outstanding in the audiobook and one who I long to hear again soon.
Definitely worth a credit or moneys to listen to.

I've noticed a new trend, probably since 50 Shades of Gray came out, where the erotica is going more and more into a dark place with more intense scenarios leaning toward a more uncomfortable place than I'm willing to be taken. I find it quite uncomfortable to know of and to listen to. Also, there is becoming a 'salad tossing' of a sort of who is participating in the sexual behaviors, with no possibilities being exempt. Again, a place I'm uncomfortable in being taken. To approve of such behaviors by qualifying that each person used (and is usually at least three now) Love one another is an immature persona to be placed on such a life.
Be aware that these books, by Kit Rocha will include such scenarios of darkness and extreme sexual encounters that you may want to reconsider your choice to listen.
Sorry that I can't add anything positive in my review of these books, but the solidarity of each character is just not there making it beyond my ability to identify with them.

I will warn anyone who may want to listen to any in this series that Michelle M. Pillow writes this with the male and female FULLY misunderstanding one another. If that be because one attempts to do the thinking for the other or one is too slow to respond to another so an assumption is made, you will find it quite annoying!
The only true way I was able to get through this listen was to skip chapters. I'm sorry to say, because I hate doing that. I won't be using a credit or spending any of my money on one in this series again.
There is substance to the content of MP's book. If she would write the relationship between her lead male and female characters in such a way that we, the listeners/readers could respect and tolerate them, she would be SPOT ON in her writing strength. Setting them up in the manner in which she does make, we the consumer become uncomfortable, and angry with those characters personalities.
I enjoy that she writes this series with females being part of the Galaxy Bride's, where women are taken to various planets where the male's population are needing women to procreate their worlds. The simplistic manner in which a 'crystal' worn by the men since their birth alerts them to who their 'true mate' is. All of this along with the tradition of unity of marriage and the institution of family is well done by Michelle Pillow. I appreciate her for that.
My recommendation is:
If you Can overlook or tolerate the banter of misunderstanding that goes on between the husband and wife in these books then your money/credit will not be wasted.
If such bantering annoys you beyond reason. Don't waste your money or your credit.
