The story is very entertaining and much more true to form then most supernatural fiction. I enjoy a good mystery and history lessons thrown in as they make sure I keep learning a thing or two everytime I read. The characters have charm and are inviting. I enjoy the narrators use of a light southern accent that is not too over the top to annoy the listener. It felt like a comfort read. This was just my type of book!

I figured I would struggle with this book, but wanted the series in my must read in order checked off my list. I'm glad I did! Not what I expected at all. Dont judge it by the small blurb or the first chapter which bounces ahead for a bit and then back. Hang in there and enjoy!

I reviewed this and the first in this series for my teenage kids. I have to admit that there are a few times the Heroine swears like a pirate which was a shock at first, but in context is more understandable. I would still allow my children to read it and reiterate the importance caution if they ever decide to use such language. It is a good story and yet reserved enough for the younger generations. I would enjoy sharing this story with others.

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS, and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it's not true love. It's a bun in the oven, and I'm not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick coworker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty, and wild - and he's also a notorious commitmentphobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me. I won't fall for him, he won't fall for me, and there's no way baby will make three. Right?

I enjoyed these characters. They had so much in common, but neither even thought about being more to each other until Nicole needed a surrogate. I would have loved to have heard more about Ryders thoughts concerning fathering a baby when he initially considered her offer, but other than that I thouroughly enjoyed this book.

Ivy thought that she and Adrian had conquered their fates. Yet with thousands of innocents still trapped in the demon realms, she's determined to locate the final hallowed weapon and harness its unparalleled power to free them. But the last relic nearly put Ivy in the grave - there's probably no coming back from this one. Adrian's dark lineage has made him the most powerful of his kind, yet even his incredible abilities might not be enough now. Instead, the treacherous fate he has fought so hard to escape might be the only way he can save Ivy.

Adam Rutledge, Viscount d'Arque, really rather loathes Christmas. The banal cheerfulness. The asinine party games. And, worst of all, the obligatory trip to the countryside. His grandmother, however, loves the holiday - and Adam loves his grandmother, so he'll brave the fiercest snowstorm to please her. But when their carriage wheel snaps, they're forced to seek shelter at the home of the most maddening, infuriating, and utterly beguiling woman he's ever met.
