Enjoyed Dirty and Twist, so gave this a try.
Kylie Scott blends a good story with humor, so I enjoyed this book. Dirty is still my favorite.
Clementine Johns is a likable character as well as Ed Larsen.
Will listen again to decide if this rating in just.
First, will listen to Dirty again.

New Orleans belongs to me. You don't know my name, but I control everything you see - and all the things you don't. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn't need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn't know she caught my attention. She should've been more careful. I'm going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It's time to collect what I'm owed.

The narrators are bad, especially the female. The storyline is bizarre and simply too uck. Kiera is to stupid to be likable, and Mount sounds like a cartoon villain when female narrator reads.
Just the worst........... even at 2 for 1 credit, it’s a waste of a credit
Never again to choose a Meghan March book. Too twisted for me.

I am a big g fan of Lisa Flanagan, and she is the only reason I listened as long as I did. It was nice to have a book about someone who is 40. But the continuous gibberish that comes from this woman sounds more like a 20 something ditzy flake.

I am so unhappy with this waste of a credit.

Ugh, 12 hours of this. ...pulling my hair out

Semele Cavnow appraises antiquities for an exclusive Manhattan auction house. When she discovers a manuscript written in the time of Cleopatra, she knows it will be the find of her career. Its author tells the story of a priceless tarot deck, now lost to history. As Semele delves further, she realizes the manuscript is more than it seems. Both a memoir and a prophecy, it appears to be the work of a powerful seer, describing devastating wars and natural disasters in detail thousands of years before they occurred.

Really liked both narrators, made it a special listening experience.
Story was fascinating, and complex. Know this is a book I will enjoy listening to several more times to catch all the details.

Author did a great job with character development, loved some of the characters and hated some too.

Thanks for a great ride.

Hardening her heart, the young woman sets out to claim what is owed and soon gains a reputation for being able to turn silver into gold.

There was nothing about this book that I did not love. The minute I began listening, Lisa Flanagan's voice mesmerized me, and I could not stop listening (except to sleep). Her narration was award winning.
I have since downloaded 2 more books by Naomi Novik.
I will re-listen to Spinning Silver again and again, and am looking forward to the next Naomi Novik book with anticipation and excitement ....
This book is in my top 10 all time favorites of all books I have enjoyed on Audible

Kitty Norville is a midnight-shift DJ for a Denver radio station---and a werewolf in the closet. Sick of lame song requests, she accidentally starts "The Midnight Hour," a late-night advice show for the supernaturally disadvantaged. After desperate vampires, werewolves, and witches across the country begin calling in to share their woes, her new show is a raging success.

Since the Others allied themselves with the cassandra sangue, the fragile yet powerful human blood prophets who were being exploited by their own kind, the delicate dynamic between humans and Others changed. Some, like Simon Wolfgard, wolf shifter and leader of the Lakeside Courtyard, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn see the new, closer companionship as beneficial - both personally and practically.

I'm still enjoying this series. This book introduced a lot of new people, so I will have to re-listen to this to try and piece
together who everyone was.
I love Joe and Jackson, and Hope.

Cried once in this book, and many chuckles, especially with Simon's thoughts.
downloaded last two books.

Big fan of Capt Burke. Wise, compassionate with a bit of smart-ass. Perfect combination.

Vlad is also a favorite, and Tolia, and grandfather Erebus. First book that I’d have to say, I love the vampires. Most vampire books make vampires slimy, but not Anne Bishop.

I do not have any issue with Alexandra Harris as the narrator. Got used to her almost immediately, so don't agree with the negative reviews.

As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut - a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg's Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard - a business district operated by the Others. Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job.

Have to admit that I was a bit disappointed in the "Horseman" conclusion.
Wish there was less repeating of explanations outlined in all previous books. Seems like filler to me.
Asher story was most enjoyable.
