After the loss of her entire family, Lorraine Peters heads to the woods searching for peace of mind and anything to quell her anger. Instead, she stumbles upon a scene of horrific violence, as one man lies helpless in the face of three attackers. Andor Katona's existence has been a harsh one, living for centuries as a monk in the Carpathian Mountains. Unable to find his lifemate, he almost welcomes his release from a colorless and unfeeling world at the hands of the vampire hunters who have mistaken him for their prey. That is, until a whirling ball of fury bursts onto the scene.

Maybe when an Author writes on the dark side they need to come up for some fun and humor breaks now and again. I agree that the last CF books have been boring. this was better. still long winded. i like long books but agree that some information does not need the pete and re-pete's. Strong female lead but sappy male. A keeper for hope fir the future and placed on the back shelf. Would love to see CF Playful with the matches. I know. everyone is a critic. Yet if a fan asks for it she will come through? Really hope so.

Very uncomfortable story due to all the drama. In a nut shell, its a lot of hurt feelings, for silly slights.. Angst, and buckets of tears with seemingly endless repeats. So many character Insecurities that I struggled to get through the book. This may very well be the last of this series I will listen to. I plan to return it.

Hugh d'Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast.

New Author for me. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Narration smooth and easy with verbal demarcation of each character easy to differentiate. A few hanky sodden moment's. Builds a fantacy world with some twists that were original. Pleasently surprised by this new to me Author. Pretty graphic. Mature readers only. Humor was a great respite. Had a strong Heroine that I truely liked.

I'm a lone wolf, and I like it that way. Banished from my birth pack after a bloodbath, I never wanted a mate. Then I meet Kylie. My temptation. We're trapped in an elevator together, and her panic almost makes her pass out in my arms. She's strong, but broken. And she's hiding something. My wolf wants to claim her. But she's human, and her delicate flesh won't survive a wolf's mark. I'm too dangerous. I should stay away.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan's neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel's best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel's blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that. Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the Internet is not her friend. No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can't find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good. But why can't she stop fantasizing about him?

I suppose if you were ten, but wait, impossible subject matter for underage readers. Level of writing is between 10 and 13. Author is in like with her own rhetoric and box banging IQ. It did bleed some true feeling maybe twice. so glad its over.
