A novella companion to New York Times best-selling author Maya Banks' Shades of Gray. Softly at Sunrise takes place in a gap of time that occurs in Shades of Gray. Rachel Kelly has traveled a long, hard road in her journey back to her husband, Ethan, and the Kelly family. Now, as she and Ethan are poised to move into their new home, safe behind the walls of the Kelly compound, Rachel wonders if she’ll finally be free of the ghosts that have haunted her for so long and if she’ll step into the sun after a past steeped in darkness.

I love this series but this narrator is one of the worst I have listen to.
The follow up for Rachel and Ethan is great.

Despite the death of a traitor and key conspirator, the plot to use the GhostWalker experiments to undermine the security of the US by foreign interests still exists. The GhostWalkers themselves must race against the clock to neutralize the danger.

I loved this story. Enjoyed that the story had a lot more action in getting the bad guys than action in the bedroom (sorta back to the original format). Enjoyed the interaction of every one in team 4 characters. They are all unique in their brokenness and how they go about striving for a life together is fascinating. Had a hard time stopping the recording to sleep.

I enjoyed the book. The story was great but the narrator took away from the book. Some of the character she used a whinny voice that was very distracting. Looking forward to moving forward with the next book. Hope they changed narrators.

"Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

Would you consider the audio edition of Bared to You to be better than the print version?

Have not read the the book.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the push and pull of the two main characters as they struggle through troubles.

Which character – as performed by Jill Redfield – was your favorite?

Ava is my favorite as she struggles to be strong.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have laughed and cried with both Ava and Gideon through their struggles. I loved the romance between the main characters and that the story shows that all things are not easy.

Any additional comments?

The sex is hot but the under story is what keeps you glued to the story and not wanting to put it down. Can't wait to see where the story goes next.

What made the experience of listening to Lion's Heat the most enjoyable?

I have followed this series from the very begining and have waited for Jonas to get his due, A strong women that would not be walked over.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Call me romantic but I love the idea of find the one person that was meant for you.

What about Brianna Bronte’s performance did you like?

I loved the preformance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I would prefer that they not ruin the story by making a film of it. A film could never show the true emotions and the breeds struggle to find peace,

Any additional comments?

Would love to hear more of the earlier books.

I really liked this book. It was very hard to put it down. The narration was very good too. This is a vampire book that show a group of vampires that struggles to maintain a piece of their humanity against the nature of the Vampire. They struggle against a set of Vampires who decide that humans are just cattle and they are going to rule the world. Yes this is a theme you see alot, but Ms. Paige has some interesting twists through out the book. I was amazed that this was her first book. Cannot wait for her next book.
