All his life, Rand T’Ash has looked forward to meeting his HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough, now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds—and attracts—his wife… Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T’Ash’s shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, placing her at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T’Ash. But T’Ash refuses to accept her rejection and sees it as a challenge instead. They are HeartMates, but can T’Ash persuade his beloved to accept her destiny by his side?

Toni’s no stranger to making mistakes. She has experienced firsthand how walking down the wrong path can send life spiraling out of control. Fortunately, she had someone to drag her from the gutter and help set her on the right track. As penance for the poor choices of her past, she pledges to suppress her baser desires and focus on finding a steady, dependable man, even if that means embracing a boring lifestyle.

My name is Lucian Quinn, and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. Impressive, right? I'm also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. Maybe it sounds vain, but the fact that I'm a god between the sheets doesn't hurt my stock any. What these women don't know, though, is that I'm completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair by my past. But then I meet her....

When the baby kicked for the first time. When the proposal happened, who among us doesn't want to be loved that completely. Factor in he is a handsome sexy billionaire, damn. A little predictable I saw who the puppet master was, didn't realize how deep it went, but.... Not sure if Rose (next book in series) interests me a credit worth but definitely plan on checking out Aiden. All in all was happy with the trilogy.

They call him a monster. Pale blue eyes as cold as ice that see right through you. He’s hard. He’s damaged. He’s dangerous. He lives in a castle fit for a fairy tale, but he’s no prince. He’s savage. He’s brutal. He’s a killer. By an act of fate, our worlds collide.They call him a monster, but he is my salvation.

I've become a fan of dual POV in romances and the narration of this was spot on. you really find yourself rooting for Brochan and Lizzie to get their HEA, they deserved it and compliment each other beautifully. I will definitely give this another listen, which is the hallmark of a great book as far as I am concerned. Looking forward to reading/listening to more by this author.

while I am sure there will be some close minded people who will not accept the love between Ari & Sev that is what made the story for me. Don't get me wrong I am a HUGE fan of paranormal be it romance or urban fantasy the love between these two would have been perfect in any setting
I am a big fan of this series I wish they were all on Audible (hint hint).The narrator was chock full of emotion and the world building was interesting. You won't be sorry.

sounds like she used her phone for the recording. All 3 books had poor sound quality. Then the story ,the blurb sounds like you are going to hear about Jace and classic with a little club drama thrown in,NOT. Most of the time they weren't together and when they were Classic vacillated between I love you lets get married to I knew I shouldn't have married you, you're a hoodlum and I will always be in danger. I know there's a 4th book about Donavan trying to get Classic's eyes, but I am not that much of a masochistic bitch. The whole thing was not linear bouncing around, if I wasn't so anal I wouldn't have wasted time on the trilogy I just kept hoping it would get better. Don't waste your time or money.

I am in a relisten of entire series, and not for the first time. I love the magical Atlanta of Kate & co and was heartbroken the series ended. While each can technically be a standalone (authors rehash salient points) for the most enjoyment start at the beginning with Magic Bites and listen in order. Worthy of a credit urban fantasy at its best.

Looking forward to next book in the series. The narration wasn't bad really but after hearing things pronounced one way for 10 books it's jarring to hear things mispronounced. Also I wished for more of Hugh and Elera as a couple outloud not just in their heads. I saw them as a couple in Magic Triumphs and was hoping for more of a backstory. All in all another high quality tale from Ilona Andrews .
