Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

Took a bit to get used to the music at the end of each chapter, didn't like the pauses at the end of each chapter either. Thought it was stopping and don't like to fiddle with my cell while on the road.

Sheriff's Deputy Zak is one of the few black bear shifters in a colony of grizzlies. He's used to taking guff from his comrades, but it's all in good fun. He's fought beside these guys for many years and it's time they all stopped roaming and picked a place to settle. Grizzly Cove seemed as good a place as any, and Zak likes the slow-moving police work in the sleepy coastal town. When his job takes him into closer proximity to the lovely Tina, though, he finds he can't resist her. Could it be he's finally found his mate? And when danger arrives at her door, will she turn to him?

Narrator does well with both male and female voices, in a conversation just had a little trouble with giving the sisters their own voices. Every once in awhile, I might have wondered who is having the conversation. But being I have this in an ebook I know.

Ever since Damon Wilder sought refuge in Sea Haven, he's heard the same breathless rumor pass the lips of nearly every local in the sleepy coastal town. Even the wind seems to whisper her name - a reverie so powerfully suggestive that it carries the curious Damon to Sarah's cliff top home, and seeks to shelter him there. But Damon has not arrived alone. Two men have tracked him to Sea Haven, and into the shadows of Drake House, where Sarah hides her own secrets.

Manolito De La Cruz knew he was dangerously close to turning into a vampire. The last thing he expected after being called back to his Carpathian homeland by Prince Mikhail was to catch the scent of his destined lifemate in MaryAnn Delaney. MaryAnn is human, but she knows all too well the overwhelmingly aggressive instincts of Carpathian males.

This is my first audio book from C. Feehan with multiple narrators, which made it interesting! I listen on my cell while in my ride to work.
While I truly enjoyed the storyline the narration at times was hard to hear. Even with the volume turned all the way up, I had to prop my cell on my shoulder to hear, when they were speaking telepathically, it was almost a whisper. :( At multiple times I had to 'rewind' and try again.

For 14 years, alpha wolf Jason has watched his partially marked mate Cadence live her life without him. Circumstances force his hand and he must find a way to get her to uncover her buried memories of their past before someone else steps up to take her from him. For as long as she can remember, hybrid wolf Cadence has loved Jason with every fiber of her being, but he's consistently shoved her away until the love that's there is bound tightly in anger and shame.

I truly enjoy R.E. Butler 's books, I have almost all of her stories on my Kindle! So when I saw this on Audible I didn't even have to think about it, pressed the purchase button right away.
I'm hoping the rest of this series will be available soon.
The only draw back for me was the narrator choice, I feel her voice makes Cadence sound like a teenager. Took a few chapters for me not to analyze it.

Ryon Hunter sees dead people - spirits that beg him for help in ways he can't understand. He'd do anything to end the torment, until a beautiful spirit appears to him with a plea he can't ignore: Help me . . . I'm alive. The woman is wildlife biologist Daria Bradford, mortally wounded after encountering a white wolf, calling to Ryon through a rare Psy gift. When Ryon locates Daria in the Shoshone National Park, it is almost too late, but nursing her back to health at the Alpha Pack compound brings a new complication...

Coming of age during China’s Cultural Revolution, Benfu survived the cruel years, but he did not emerge unscathed. The Scavenger’s Daughters is the story of Benfu and his beloved wife Calli, chronicling their attempts to build a life in the turmoil and aftermath of Maoist China. At the heart of their struggle lies the pain of losing their only child. To fill the terrible hole in their lives, they take in abandoned girls - the unwanted "weeds" - as their own, lovingly caring for them as flowers in a garden.
