It was nice to give Catalina her own voice and the Ms. Rankin was very good. This book was as excellent as you expect from Ilona Andrews.

Glad I only used a coupon on this. Same narrator as other books and she’s good. It is a prelude to the first story but you don’t miss anything by not listening to this first. Depressing and not really worth a credit. Love the rest of the books in this series and the author in general.

One thing I've learned about running a shelter for paranormal creatures, you can't afford to let your guard down. It all started when I welcomed an enchanting new guest to my plantation. Strange things started to happen. Well, more strange than usual. I was caught off guard by some conflicting feelings, and it spurred me on to get Brad, the love of my life, committed. To moving in with me, that is. In any case, I was willing to do whatever it took: love spells, black magic, and something so naughty I'd rather not mention it here.

I wanted to love this because the reviews said it was so funny. The comedy struck me as off key. The story line was awkward and ridiculous even for the paranormal genre. It's my fault despite being a huge Molly Harper fan, enjoying Kristen Painter and early Dakota Cassidy I don't like Robyn Peterman, Angie Fox or Danielle Garrett. If you enjoy all these writers then perhaps you will enjoy this book.

It has been three years since the Destroyer sundered our world. The land is longer whole, but broken into pieces, most technology gone, and the continents shattered into an unrecognizable place. New monsters have risen from the depths, adding danger on top of danger. Through it all, the humans fight to survive as they compete not only with the supernaturals for food and resources, but their own kind as well. And me? The caravans of humans I pass - they look to me to save them. Only I am not the witch I once was.

I loved Meyer's Desert Cursed and the first few books of the Rylee series but this one and the Elemental series were just not to my taste. Narrator was great so if you like the Elemental series then you should probably really like this book.

Getting arrested wasn't on werewolf Ivy Kincaid's agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry...but the downside is the man she's come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. That's not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack's sworn enemy...aka her fiancé.

If you could sum up The Werewolf Meets His Match in three words, what would they be?

Kristen Painter stays true to her style from the first Nocturne book. I really like the light-hearted playfulness of these paranormal romances. Not as funny as Molly Harper but an amusing amusing read and fans of Dakota Cassidy or Harper would probably like this series.

Piper Macintosh's great-aunt has really gone too far. Eighty-seven-year-old Hannah, who fancies herself a witch, has sold her historic Cape Cod house to a Tennessean whom she claims is the man for her niece. Piper doesn't think they're a likely match - particularly not after she meets the reclusive tycoon while trespassing in his garden.

A self-help audiobook for single, financially savvy women; It outlines how to dress, present yourself, what subjects to get educated in, and what type of places to visit in order to meet and attract wealthy men. It not only gives pointers on how to get financial favors from your suitors without giving it up but it also gives pointers on how to make the money you accumulated work for you in the future. The author shares the lessons she's learned over the years and inspires women around the globe to never lose sight of their goals.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Baje Fletcher?

The narration was horrible. She cannot articulate full words. I forced myself to make it 2/3 of the way through but I could not finish, it was so horrible.

Any additional comments?

Being strong, self-promoting and demanding that you be valued are all laudable characteristics toward which women should strive. The narrator makes good points on self promotion (even if some of them are amateurish, you will not be taken seriously on any subject if all you know are the mere basics she includes in her book eg. red wine with meat and white wine with fish) and expects women to value themselves which is wonderful. I object to her blatant condescension toward her duped men and women who aren't doing things her way.

If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you'd have. With her I am the mark, and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her I will bring the world down around their ears.
