Dan got barbaric and battled giant spiders, an apocalyptic death cult, and an undead necromancer bent on flooding the universe with eternal darkness.

The hero is a not likable or even admirable...He's just plain stupid. He gets his butt kicked so bad in practice with a wooden sword after being an arrogant jerk. Also its not believable any of his harem would find him attract much less worth sharing. Got thru the first book ok but its the end of the story line for me. I couldn't even finish it. I prefer my heroes to actually be heroic but that is just me you might like it if your into hero humiliation. ;)

All I wanted to do was have some R&R from my time in space with the Marine Corps. My tour was done, my days fighting bad guys over once and for all. Or so I thought. But damn was I wrong. So f--king wrong. Imagine being told you're going to be responsible for bringing a child into the world, one who would have the power to change it all, to once and for all fight off the evil forces threatening to enslave our galaxy and that of the supers who brought the message.

A brave knight is wrongfully cursed, turning him into the most beautiful woman on the planet. To reverse this spell, "she" must form a quest to seek out the Wicca master who cast the spell, hopefully changing her mind. Along the way, the knight falls in love with her squire, battles vampires, helps aid an elf revolution, and even becomes pregnant. Ultimately, her squire must make the hard choice: Does he help his master complete "her" quest, or does he try to keep his one true love?

When your only super power and battle tactic after you get changed into a woman is ...I cant help but have oral sex with the first priest I meet in front of my boyfriend while he watches in disgust while I cant stop or The vampire rapes me while my friends hang around and decide how to pull him off and they take so long he almost finishes...or ill let the demon rape and impregnate me willingly so my friends can achieve a goal in our quest. ya Just NO. Its written well with likable characters but our hero turned female thinks that a vagina is his best weapon.

What if the woman you loved was the one person you could never be with? Elizabeth Grayson doesn't want a bodyguard. She's worked hard for her normal life, but her father, the founder of a booming seafood empire, is a prime target for his unethical competitors. When her father hires a bodyguard for Elizabeth, she's less than enthusiastic...that is, until she meets the mysterious Layne O'Connell. Sarcastic, charming, and secretive, Layne is hired to keep Elizabeth safe. But protecting her heart wasn't in the job description.

The Sullivans are in this one so that's a plus but the main heroin is not heroic at all. While in the night books the wordiness added a certain charm its just too much in this one. How long can you draw out a climatic scene with useless introspection before its conclusion, how many times can you say the same I Love you in a row before the main fight scene? This just starts to ruin the pace and looses what little charm the book had. I was skipping 30 seconds at a time 3 or 4 times in a row and they still had not moved on from the constant inner monologue that added zip to the story... too much fluff not enough story. Sorry I've listened to a lot of her books mainly because I've used my credits and I can listen to as many romance paranormal story's as I want for free...but your killing me with this one. The love scene was just as drawn out. Who gets all hot and bothered right in the middle and then spaces out for 5 min to think in there head about a falling star while the other person somehow doesn't even get fully undressed after you beg them too LOL! ok I will probably read some more of her work cause she has a way of telling a light fun story but...EDITOR Please.

My name is Arizona Smoke, and I'm the proud owner of a house haunted by my dead Gram, best friend to a cocktail dress loving werewolf, and apparent soul mate to four plumbers who also happen to be elemental dragons. Besides rippling pectorals, tattoos, and … uh, nice, long pipes, the guys also have control of the elements. Supernatural law (whoever heard of such a thing anyway?) dictates that since I stumbled upon the guys in their alternate forms, I have to marry them. All four of them. Oh, and apparently one lousy (okay, awesome) night of sex means that I'm an elemental, too—and no amount of magical penicillin can cure this disease.

This is one adult fantasy that does shy away from the Hot stuff. The plumber jokes where so corny but kept the book light. The story was surprisingly good and the sex scenes (which were every chapter it seemed) where scorching. So if your looking for some no holds bared full on adult paranormal Fantasy this would be it.

I love the IMP series and Debra Dunbar books but common maybe you should visit the island next time before writing your book about it. It ruins the story when you base your plot around these non existent trees. There is no such thing as a Pineapple tree. They grow close to the ground ...its a plant. I have visited the island only once and discovered this right away. It just seems so lazy to make a huge mistake like this. Then you compound the situation by dwelling on the misconception... the fungus on the tree, the orchard, the bark being infected and so on just a huge lazy mistake. Also having your heroin have to give herself to others or multiples guys at a time that she just picks up in bars when she doesn't want to constantly to get a little power then come back and get with her partner ...sloppy seconds or thirds ...eewww! That doesn't make me feel good for her either. Having to pimp yourself out against your will is not a super power its kinda sad so I didn't enjoy this book. I just felt sorry for the main character and embarrassed for the authors lack of research.

But when he comes to collect on the debt I can’t pay, one of his goons slams me with a deadly curse. Suddenly, I’m out of options and out of time. When I’m given a rare chance to join the secretive Undercover Protectorate and train at their academy to become an investigator, I have a way to hunt the cure for the curse.

This is the first time i've liked a story but felt the narration was ruining my experience. The cadence of the narration in this book is awful. She reads four or five words at a time no matter where in the sentence structure she happens to be and makes every phrase a captain Kirk like question whether it is or not. The tone of her voice is fine but she cant seem to string a whole thought or sentence together at once, there are always these disjointed short phrase's ... horrible . I tried speeding it up or slowing it down but it just makes it worse even more sing song and totally annoying. Usually after a couple of chapters I can ignore a narrators quirks and just submerge into the story....no luck so far.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

Ya im a guy love urban fiction and fantasy books. Sometimes these can get pretty intense and after a series you just need a break from all the stress of your characters getting almost destroyed all the time. This was a great purely fun listen laughed a lot and was a total stress relief in the car during traffic. Im a total closet Molly Harper fan...ssshhh dont tell the guys LOL!
