This is not a love story. Not the kind that you expect from Nickolas Sparks. This is the story of the love a father shares for his daughter. Of the great length one Dad is willing to go for this love. It is the story of a couple who should never have been married in the first place. The story of a spoiled woman who acts as though she puts her daughter first but in truth only thinks of herself. It is the story of the love of family and the story of devastating loss. You will laugh, you will cry, you will praise a man who believes in love so deeply but somehow does not believe that he is deserving of love. This is a story that will make you ugly cry, again, and again, and again.

I haven't read this story in so many years and I just love the series so when this audiobook went on sale I grabbed a copy. I am so happy I did! I forgot how much I loved Beth & Wrath's story and it is so much more exciting in audio form!

JR Ward did such an amazing job introducing her new vampire world to readers. Jim Frangione did an amazing job bringing the characters to life.

If you are looking for sexy, exciting, alpha vampire males, tons of action, brotherhood love, and absolute soulful love this is the audiobook for you!

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I'd never been able to forget - even though he so easily forgot about me - and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you've had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless prank call. Instead I went off on him - unloading 13 years of pent-up emotions. I didn't think he'd call me back.

I couldn't have scripted a more perfect night. For one fantastic evening, at a masquerade party in the heart of Manhattan, I'm not the millionaire everyone wants a piece of. Fine - multimillionaire. But who's counting all those commas? Not me, and not the most intriguing woman I've ever met. And that's why I'm eager to get to know her more, since my mystery woman seems to like me for me, rather than for my huge...bank account. Everything's coming up aces. Until the next day, when things get a little complicated. (Newsflash - a lot complicated.)

I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book or not but since it is Gena I figured I would give it a try and I am so thankful I did!!!

What if it you literally stumbled upon a war and was kidnapped by the sexiest warrior alive?! Jump on the crazy train of course! That is exactly what wily, snarky, sexy Vale does. She is a survivor and she just goes with it. What she doesn't see coming is Foxy Knoxy.

Knox of Iviland is a slave to war. He has never known compassion, truth, companionship or love. He knows violence, death, hurt and anguish. When she kidnaps a mortal he doesn't expect his life to change forever.

This story is the first in a series and there is a lot of world building. It can get confusing but it slowly clears up as the story progresses. Action packed excitement does not begin to cover this one! There is everything a reader could ask for and more! Gena has created an epic battle of war, sexy hot immortal warriors, and characters that will soon steal all our hearts, just like Knox and Vale! Bring on book 2!!!
