The Auxem are desperate. A virus has killed all their women and is beginning to affect the males' fertility. Their only chance for survival is mating with human women. Jayne Lynch is in charge of supervising the small group of volunteers who will be test subjects for a breeding program with the aliens. She's supposed to be impartial, but then she meets Arnon, the dark-haired, dark-eyed, muscular crown prince. The chemistry between them is too strong to ignore.

This is a great addition to the TerraMates series. Lisa Lace is an excellent author that weaves a great sci-fi romance. The story is unique and interesting. The TerraMates founder’s daughter volunteered to join a new program to help match women with their Alien husbands. The stakes are higher in this unique planet because their males mate for life and need children to save them from extinction.

Narration is well done and brings the story to life.

I’m hoping there will be more stories about Auxem men and early women. Armon has several brothers that need a HEA as well. I’m looking forward to the next TerraMates book!

I have enjoyed every book written by Lindzee! This new suspenseful romance series is excellent with unexpected twists and turns. I really enjoyed book 1 in this series and book 2 is just as great.

Narration is well done and brings the story to life.

The characters are well developed and interesting. Layla’s life seems perfect but things start crumbling down when she comes home. Tyler decides to make a huge leap of faith and goes after what he wants.

Lindzee’s stories are well written and clean. They are appropriate for any age group. I’m looking forward to book 3.

Gianpierre Romano is being dragged back to Italy by the one thing he can’t escape: family. The Romano fortune and name has followed him wherever he goes - but that only made the headstrong Italian more determined to strike out on his own. Now, he’s on the cusp of achieving international fame for an architectural project in the Middle East when he’s roped into reconstructing the foundation of his family’s resort. It’s a project that Gianpierre has the passion for, but not the time - not if he wants to make it to Dubai for the start date of his dream project.

I always enjoy Leslie’s books and this one is no exception. I love learning about other places and Italy is one place I’d love to visit. Her characters are strong and willful. Luciana is a great character that has just been hit by tragedy and been given a difficult task of raising her niece.

Narration is well done and brings the story to life.

Gianpierre is a complex man with big dreams and no room for love. His interactions with her niece were heartwarming and sweet. I always enjoy the HEA conclusions Leslie North can expertly weave in her stories.

I enjoy this cozy mystery series so much! I would strongly encourage anyone to start with book one so that you will be familiar with the characters and not miss anything. This family of witches is a hoot!

Narration was great and brought the story to life!

This series is so entertaining and fun with unexpected twists and turns and delivered with lots of laughter! Aunt Pearl is still up to no good and trying to run the sheriff out of town. She invites several people to their family holiday celebration. Cendrine is not pleased but there is nothing she can do. This will not be a private family dinner like she had expected and trouble brews.

Excellent Author and amazing narrator! I’m always looking forward to any book done by this dynamic duo!

This is the fourth book in the Starcrossed Dragons Series. I have enjoyed every book in this reverse harem dragon fantasy! This was an outstanding conclusion to a great series.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Maya and her handsome mates have to track and find one of them that went missing. They also need to come clean on some of the lies they have woven in order to get what they wanted or needed.

There are lots of surprises with her pregnancy and new powers that emerge. We find out the father and whether or not she defeated the power hungry Lady of the East.

The sad part is that this is the last book in this great series.

Outstanding story with a sweet HEA conclusion . I’m already looking forward to my next Leslie North Romance!

Timeless is an outstanding book and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the story continues on Fearless. Please read Timeless before reading this book. You won’t be disappointed! Jenny and Genevieve are adjusting to their new reality when Maurelle manage to switch them again!

Narration was great and brought the story to life!

I cannot imagine how frustrating it is to be in your wedding day and then all of a sudden you are thrown back into your old life! It is a bittersweet moment for both Jenny and Genevieve!

I was pleasantly surprised with all the twists and turns. Several questions I had after reading Timeless are answered in this book. The story sucks you in and keeps you entertained all the way to the conclusion!

If you like fairytales, magic, time travel, a touch of romance and great twists, this fantasy series is for you! I’m so looking forward to the next fairytale twist in this series!

This is book 2 in the Divine Fate Trilogy. The story continues with Ryn attending an angels only high school. A bit of a love triangle develops. Ryn is training in secret to hide her unique purple “fireball” ability. (ok, I know it’s not a fireball!)

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

Ryn is trying to find Grace. The demons are doing anything they can to stop her. The future of the Davina are at stake. The future of the world depends on reaching Grace. This book does not have a major cliffhanger, but I was not ready for it be over! I’m looking forward to book 3!

Luxury real estate agent Adeline Peluso came to Italy in search of adventure. Inheriting an apartment with a view of the coast in Sicily sounded like something out of a movie, but after two years spent watching a resort she’d always loved fall to pieces she’s ready to throw in the proverbial towel ... that is until one of the owners finally walks into her office. Tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome, the man would drive her crazy with his arguments if he didn’t set her aflame with his kisses. Billionaire Nicolo Romano is a global citizen.

This is a great start to the Romano Brothers series. This story is set in Sicily where the brothers have inherited a centuries old resort. They plan on selling the resort so someone can destroy it and rebuild a new project, but Adeline wants to save the resort and keep the rich history intact.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Adeline goes through great lengths to manipulate things to go according to what she wants. Nicolo has no roots anywhere and likes being on the go all the time. He wants to be the best at what he does and a great opportunity opens up for him in India. Adeline applies to a job in Spain... Will circumstances pull them apart? Will the resort get another chance to shine and get back to what it once was?

I love Leslie North books! Her stories are great and all locations captivating. I’m looking forward to getting to know the other brothers in next books.

This is a great suspenseful romance! If you are familiar with Leslie North you know she has a talent of weaving an amazing tale with a strong heroine and a tall, dark, and handsome Hero. I love her Sheikh’s stories and the amazing places I get to explore in her books.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

I don’t think I have ever heard the name Wynifred before! She is an author of an upcoming book called “Love Solves All”. She is brought in as a mediator to get cousins to heal a deep set rift.

Rameez and Haris start competing for her attention instead of working on mending their relationship. Tensions mount when a dangerous collector joins in trying to get his hands on Rameez’s new acquired Island.

Excellent story with a HEA conclusion.
