This book was awesome. I really loved Lera'a Sorrows and I really loved Illera's Darkliete Illera is fighting her fate when she doesn't want to marry the Prince of Frain and runs away but considering Lera's Sorrows and the King in it i don't Blame her. I liked the way we see her use her magic that she inherited from her mom. There was a surprise that I didn't .see. coming and I didn't figure out who she picked. Mini love triangle. All in all wh a t a great book and I can't wait to read more in this world.

The entity who has been called the Witch Hunter is focusing on those who have psychic powers. He has issued an edict to the Tantalarians, demanding that they bow to his will. He has challenged the wrong people, though he doesn’t seem to realize it. One Tantalarian in particular feels he has an ax to grind with this Witch Hunter. This entity has mentally attacked Terec and singled out the woman he loves to use for his own nefarious purpose. He will not rest until his foe is dead. The game lines have been drawn; the war is on.

Ricki Sparks knows she can make a mean red velvet cake but can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into a blind date. When she opens the door to see the man she’s been secretly sweet on since the first day he walked into her bakery, she fears her heart will be demolished. At least she knows she’s in for a wild ride. With a past like his, private investigator Garrett McBride doesn’t feel he’s worthy of a good woman’s love. Especially not Ricki, the sweet, beautiful baker. But its not just her delectable baked goods that keep him coming back and it isn’t long before he admits to himself that he wants her for his own. He never suspects that the greatest danger to her may come not from himself, but from the deceitful woman Ricki has befriended.

Omg David Quimby is great at narrating this book. The audiobook was almost better than my paperback or ebook copies just because I could listen with I was working. Cheyenne McCray is a great writer and Playing with You is a great book with great characters. I don't like a lot of male narrators but David has become one of my favorites.

Edgar Allan Poe - the master of horror - was also responsible for writing the first detective stories in history. His master sleuth, the elusive logician C. Auguste Dupin, is the man the police turn to when they find themselves unable to solve a mystery. Here are two of Poe's Dupin stories in a single volume, one involving blackmail of the royal family and the other...a tale of two brutal murders in the heart of Paris!

After 10 years of wandering the outer rim of the galaxy, Eddie Teach is a man without a purpose. He was one of the toughest pilots in the Federation, but now he’s just a regular guy, getting into bar fights and making a difference wherever he can. It’s not the same as flying a ship and saving colonies, but it’ll have to do. That is, until General Lance Reynolds tracks Eddie down and offers him a job. There are bad people out there. Someone has to stop them.
