My name is Freyja. I will soon cease to exist unless I acquire a cure for my curse from the fey in the twilight realm. The fey empress will kill me if she learns I'm an abomination - a Nephilim. And I'm not just the spawn of any angel, but the monstrous angel king she beheaded. The smoking-hot, formidable Dragonian prince, my abductor, knows nothing about my curse or that I am his fated mate he is desperately searching for - the First Witch.

I would really encourage anyone that is thinking about reading this book to start with the first book. Book one is so great and you will not want to miss it! The writing is amazing and I just could not put it down!

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Here you will find action, suspense, mystery, and sizzling romance! The story is so gripping that is hard to get anything done until you figure out how everything is going to turn out! I read the kindle edition last year and I still got sucked in and could not put it down.

The Dragonian prince takes awhile to realize what is write in front of him. Freyja misunderstands just about everything he does and somehow gets jealous of his feelings for the “First Witch”! Which is like being jealous of herself! Lol

I loved to way everything wrapped up nicely at the conclusion after a major epic battle!

It seems TerraMates are employing some shady people with horrible work ethics. The employees are not even tricking women into bogus arrangements anymore! TerraMates are flat out kidnapping women that are not even interested in getting married or moving to another planet!

Narration is well done and brings the story to life. I always enjoy when there is dual narration.

This Alien mail order bride story is so unique and entertaining! I really enjoy the plot, drama, romance, and eventually things fall in place nicely with a great HEA conclusion.

I enjoyed the unexpected twists in this story! Lisa Lace is so creative with her stories and they are all enjoyable to listen/read. I’m already looking forward to my next book! I cannot even imagine what TerraMates is going to come up with next!

I’m very selective with the mysteries I decide to read and I’m so glad I gave this book a try. I’m not familiar with this author, but from now on, I’ll keep my eyes open for more books written by her. I have not read the previous books in the Northstar Security Series but this one can be read as a stand alone.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

The characters were interesting and the story kept me enthralled from beginning to conclusion. I like light mysteries with a touch of romance and humor! This book was even better than I expected it. Now, I just need to go back and read the previous books in this awesome modern detective series!

Leslie North is a very talented author and I always enjoy her books! This book is an excellent addition to the Sharif Sheikhs series. I love traveling to exotic locations! I’ve always wanted to visit Dubai. Maybe one day, but until then, I’ll read Leslie’s contemporary romances! I always feel immersed in her books and have a hard time putting it down. It’s a good thing I can usually get through them in one sitting. This one is just under three hours of listening time.

Narration was really good and brought the story to life.

The main characters are strong and independent. Khalid was very difficult to deal with because he kept ignoring all Katie’s ideas to help his gallery. Katie is beautiful and driven to succeed despite her difficult boss!

This can be read as a stand alone but I would suggest reading the first two books as well. This is a great series.

I really enjoy cozy mysteries that incorporate some four legged helpers. I’m a cat lover so I specially enjoyed how helpful her neighbor’s cat was to solving this murder. There were some twists and turns that kept me guessing who could have done it and why.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

I did think Maggie acted crazy at times! Most people would have been cautious when they think someone is a killer! Not her! She was diving head into the investigation and going after the killer alone!

The story was interesting and kept me interested and guessing all the way to the conclusion. I enjoyed how the story wrapped up nicely and we figured out how the disappearance was connected to the newest murder. People are not always what they seem!

I’m not familiar with this author but I’m glad I decided to give it a shot. It is an interesting and complex story with some twists and turns.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

This was a bit of a reversal on the female being a strong older character and the male being young, inexperienced, and fragile. The story flowed in a good pace with unique characters that kept me interested and engaged from beginning to conclusion.

I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

I’m not familiar with this author but I’m glad I decided to give West a Chance. This book is well written with a lot of twists and turns to keep you guessing. It is a good beginning to an intriguing time travel series. The story is told in Josie’s point of view. There are a lot of interesting characters and the story develops at a good pace with new information being revealed as the story becomes more complex. Not everything is as it seems!

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

This story had some unique characters! A mentally ill man with some disturbing behavior living in the cave with the ghosts of the people he killed! An ally that turns against you when you least expect.

I was a bit disappointed with the romance. It basically barely started then boom huge cliffhanger!!! I love HEA but unfortunately things did not conclude in a happy note. I’m not sure why Josie trusts Carter at all! In my opinion he is hiding too much to be trustworthy.

I do want to find out what happens next. So I’m looking forward to the next book in this intriguing time travel series.

Linsey Hall is one of my favorite writers. She can weave an interesting and engaging tale that will have you sucked in and totally enthralled. I love her stories!

Nix, Phoenix knight, is a Firesoul and has to do everything she can to conceal that fact. Her magic can get her killed if anyone finds out about it.

Ares, a hybrid vampire, accuses her or killing a men. He puts a colar on her and plans to take her to the vampire council to be judged/condemned.

It is amazing how 31 hrs fly by when listening to this great series. I have enjoyed every single one of her books in the Dragons Gift series so far.

Laurel is an excellent narrador that brings the story to life. I really enjoy listening to her.

Here you will find everything that makes a great fantasy book: magic, lots of action, mystery, and a touch of romance.

I’m always looking forward to listening to any book written by this amazing author and talented narrator.
