Plague howls across Europe, the Hundred Years' War rages across the land, and the city of Asylum is consumed by a brutal civil war. Amidst this threefold maelstrom of havoc, enter Sir Luther Slythe Krait: a knight long bled dry of chivalry and shorn of heroism. A man whose lone desire is to slink through the backwaters and alleyways of civilization. But Sir Luther is a man who gets what he deserves, not what he desires. Thrust into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse amidst Asylum's power-mad lords, can Sir Luther play one off against another long enough to accomplish his task?

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This story was fast paced with so many twists and turns that it was hard to keep up. The many encounters the hero had were well written but they kept me guessing what will happen next. the narrator added to the story. This type of fantasy is not my forte. But the overall story was good.

Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she'd vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled - or maybe yanked - away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.

This is another story in the series. I love how the author weaves romance into the story without explicit descriptions of sex. The family dynamics are great.

Just south of Tupelo, Mississippi, on the Natchez Trace lies a place of mystery called Witch Dance. When Thomas and Margaret Speedwell took their twins to Witch Dance for a weekend camping trip, they never imagined they would be pulled into a vortex of witchcraft, tragedy, and karma. One of the girls goes missing; the other won’t say what happened on the other side of the hill. The tragedy pulls together a cast of characters from Margaret’s childhood and beyond - Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians, Toltec ancestors, the extinct Hopewell tribe.

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I loved the ending. There were some parts that were totally unbelievable. But this is a fantasy so I guess it was ok but even so you have to stay within what is plausible. It was a good story that had several plot twists that made the story interesting. I am not a fan of ghost stories but this one was a different take on what was expected.

It’s every girl’s dream, getting rescued by a handsome stranger. When I woke up and saw Kit Green standing over me, I thought he was an angel. I didn’t see the dark wings. What is he doing out here all alone? I don’t question it at first. I’m too busy being blinded by intrigue and desire. If it weren’t for him, I’d be dead. I want to repay him with my body. But things quickly begin to not add up. This cabin is full of secrets. It’s cold outside, but I’m starting to think he came out here to burn for his sins.

This was a good story but was spoiled for me with all of the sex scenes. More backstory of how the past 4 years that led to the decision for suicide would have made it great. The narrator was good and moved the story along. Loved the mom and the relationship. Such a good ending. I know sex sells but too much takes away from the story. I got this via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review.

It's no joke that D'Raynged takes slacking his undead life away wicked seriously. He's a vampire of simple needs. All he wants is warm blood, his roommate's Netflix password, and to be left the hell out of all the supernatural crap that keeps happening to Chia Petit (aforementioned town manager, roommate, and best-friend-that-he-may-or-may-not-be-in-love-with). Household maintenance is definitely not on his to-do list, especially not when it comes to the boiling red energy leak in Chia's bedroom ceiling that is dripping ghosts of all the former shifters and humans killed on her watch.

My review is that this next book in the series is strange. The way it started as well as the many twists it took to get to the end. Chia has two men in love with her but she only loves one and has not been deceptive about it. But the other can't control his feelings and this causes some problems not the least of which is jealousy and twisting the knife in a wound. The ending was a surprise. The narrator was a good addition to the story.

Will the unexpected arrival of his former girlfriend distract him from his duties?

I got this book via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. When it first started I said, "Oh no, not another one." But as I listened I enjoyed the way the story twisted around the various characters. The grandfather was a hoot and so were many of the other patients. The HEA, although expected happened in a good way. The narrator added to the story and made it come alive.

The concept highly imaginative. Overall a good listen as long as you listen with an open mind especially in the climate that we are in right now.

This story was given to me via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This is a continuation of a series that captured my attention from the first book. The narrator added so much to the story. All of the characters were vital to the story and it would not have been complete without each one. So glad that Jason will get the help he needs. Grandpa was something else.

Kat Stevens is a slightly insecure, mostly bored technical writer who likes her cat a lot more than her boss. She hasn't laid eyes on her great aunt Abigail since she was eight, so she's stumped when she inherits Abigail's house in the small hamlet of Alpine Grove. Kat's uncomplicated life gets decidedly less so when she discovers the inheritance comes with some hairy conditions: four dogs and five cats that her aunt wanted her to love as her own. Of course, the house smells like a barn - with a touch of antique skunk - and, naturally, has serious roof issues.

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I enjoyed this story very much the narrator was a little slow so had to speed it up to 1.25 but other than that it was a good listen and I loved the double engagements. Loved how the story started and how in tune the two became after discovering who they really were to each other. The plot twists kept me guessing on some of the things.
