Nevada Baylor can't decide which is more frustrating - harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor "Mad" Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she's become a crucial player - and sometimes a pawn - but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin.

Nevada Baylor has a unique and secret skill - she knows when people are lying - and she's used that magic (along with plain hard work) to keep her colorful and close-knit family's detective agency afloat. But her new case pits her against the shadowy forces that almost destroyed the city of Houston once before, bringing Nevada back into contact with Connor "Mad" Rogan.

Allison Trent doesn't look like a hacker. In fact, when she's not in college working on her degree, she models on the side. But behind her gorgeous face is a brilliant mind for computers and her real love is writing - and hacking - code. Her dream is to write a new security program that could revolutionize the tech industry.

I was kind of annoyed with the story. Liam was not really likable and I was kind of hoping the story would have Allison get some other guy. And the story was kind of all over the place. I love Julie Garwood's books. Super bummed.

Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

I watched The Girls Next Door. I remember the episode that she talked about in the book where she said Hef didn't think she photographed well. Because it made me think 'crap if she doesn't photograph well, I must be awful'. I thought the story was really interesting. I really like Kendra too so I am bummed they are not buds, but oh well. It was a nice story and I thought she did avoid job narrating too.

Lorina would much rather keep her head down and her hands in the dirt underneath Ainslie Castle, but her on-screen partner is proving to be a major distraction. Brother to the castle's current lord, privileged, perfectly sculpted Gunner Ainslie is a sure bet to keep viewers glued to their screens. Lorina intends to keep the ladies’ man focused on the job at hand, but Gunner is confident he’ll soon have the beauty falling into his bed.

I think I have all of Katie Macalister's books and like all of them because they are light and funny and the characters get themselves in ridiculous but funny scenarios that they eventually find their way out of. But I was actually repulsed by the scenario the main character plotted. I am a health care worker so maybe that is my problem with this, but ugh... I just am not super impressed with the main plot. The two characters were likable for the most part. And there were funny moments. But I was cringing at the main scenario. I don't want to give spoilers in my review so I won't go in to details. I gave it three stars because I didn't give up on it which is usually what I do if I hate the book.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The plot was annoying.

What was most disappointing about Julianne MacLean’s story?

The entire book was the heroine proving she was worthy of her husband, not the other way around.

What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think Ann Flosnik does a good job with narrations. I have her Karen Robards books and I just finished Kushiels dart. I never have thought anything of her performance before. I think i find fault because The constant whining of the main character grated on my nerves.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I like the idea of a fairy tale with princess and a prince. This was why I bought the book. This story was definitely not something I got caught up with.

Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

The residents of flood-stricken Hunsford, seeking refuge in the parsonage atop the hill, are unaware they are interrupting Darcy's disastrous proposal. Even worse, the flood has washed out the only bride to Rosings Park, stranding Darcy with the woman who has just refused his offer of marriage. But it may already be too late to redeem Elizabeth's reputation.
