Jesus made it clear that the devil has come to steal, kill, and destroy. Hell is ready to unleash fury against every follower of Jesus. Yet many believers live in denial, letting the enemy steal their blessings, destroy their relationship with Jesus, and kill their hope. But no more. It's time to put the enemy on notice! Here is everything you need to become armed and dangerous against every adversary that threatens your relationship and growth with Jesus.

I did not like this book at all. I will not be buying anything else from this author. Word to the wise: Always thoroughly investigate an author, especially one writing on spiritual matters! If you perform due diligence, you will hopefully see why this book is incorrect.

“Vampires...” When Raffaele Notte pulls a barely dressed, disoriented woman from the ocean, the last thing he expects is for her to utter that word. The immortal has come to the island resort to help his cousin, but now, it seems, there are rogue vampires dining on unsuspecting tourists. And he soon realizes that not only is Jess a target, she’s also the life mate for whom he’s been waiting....

Sometimes the only way to love - and redemption - is to make a deal with the devil. After the death of her parents, Lady Aurora de Marquise is left with no illusions. Stripped of her birthright and betrayed by her uncle, escape is her only option. With her life on the line, she narrowly avoids another murder attempt - only to run headlong into Lord Brigham de Mornay, a man most consider a monster. With her uncle's henchmen nipping at her heels, Aurora knows better than to trust a stranger - especially one as compelling as Brigham.

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

After reading Nora's books for decades, this one is predictable. The storyline is getting stale ... it doesn't matter what/who/where the story takes place.Other than getting out of the storyline rut, I can't think of anything.

Would you recommend Dark Witch to your friends? Why or why not?

Recommend to Nora fans who never tire of the same old same old.

Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

No favorite ... that in itself is sad.

Do you think Dark Witch needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

We already know the six that will be the 3 H/H combinations, so yes, finish them off. I won't pair them here to spoil readers who don't know where this is leading.

Any additional comments?

If I weren't such a big fan, I wouldn't even have picked this one up. I can say I will wait on library checkouts ... saves money better spent on fresh story lines from other authors.

When Lady Georgette Thorold awoke she saw...her corset hanging from the armoire...a very handsome, very naked Scotsman lying beside her...and a wedding ring on her finger! Before the attractive stranger can tell her his name, Georgette does the only sensible thing - she runs for it. Little does she know, James MacKenzie isn't clear on what happened the night before, either. All he knows is that his money is missing and the stunning woman who just ran from the room is either his wife or a thief...or possibly both.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The first of the book dragged on and on ... I was at the point of putting it down as unreadable. I'm glad I didn't because the second half was worth hearing.

What could Jennifer McQuiston have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She could cut down the H/H rushing around trying to find each other ... all the while dragging the book down as to what occurred the night before .... way way too long on that aspect of the story IMO.

Which character – as performed by Lana J. Weston – was your favorite?

The hero, James, was my favorite. Even when he was hateful ... I liked him. The narrator did a good job ... even with the extensive dragging parts of the story.

Was What Happens in Scotland worth the listening time?

As I mentioned before, only half of it was worth the listen. That is why the rating is so low from me. The last half was actually a 3.5 out of 5 stars for me .... the beginning half was a -2 star if that were possible here.

Any additional comments?

Knowing what I do now, and even enjoying the second half, I would not have missed not reading this book. Perhaps it is your cup of tea throughout ... everyone has different tastes after all.

Uilleam MacRieve, a centuries-old Lykae warrior, was captured, caged, and experimented on by a shadowy human order, along with other immortals. During a prison break that devolved into one of the bloodiest massacres in recent history, he escapes. But the aftermath of his unspeakable torture preys on his damaged mind, while the wolf inside him roars for vengeance and carnage. In the days leading up to the full moon, can MacRieve rein in his beast, even when he encounters his mate - a vexingly impossible female unlike anything he'd ever dreamed for himself?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend this book. It takes you on an emotional ride with many twists and turns.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Macrieve?

There are so many, I can't (and won't due to avoiding spoilers) choose just one.

Which scene was your favorite?

I have to give the same message as before. There are so many, I can't (and won't due to avoiding spoilers) choose just one.

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

This book made me laugh and cry with a myriad of emotions in between. The author has written a storyline that brings your emotions into the story .... you have to react ... you are so drawn into their lives.

Any additional comments?

The narrator performs an amazing read and you won't be able to put this down once you start it!

The spunky heroine of Romancing the Dead returns in this utterly bewitching series. Witch Garnet Lacey is ready to walk down the aisle with the super sexy vampire Sebastian. Besides the fact that he has no pulse, things couldn't be more perfect. Until plans for the wedding start falling apart, and Sebastian's zombie-slash-vampire-slash witch ex-lover decides that both of them should be six feet under. It's just a matter of time before Garnet-who's already sharing her body with a short-tempered goddess-morphs into Bridezilla.

What would have made Dead If I Do better?

The story drags and I couldn't get into it so not sure anything could salvage it. I tried but I just could not go through the torture to finish it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure what I'll find for the next ones ... but July 9th it will be Fifth Grave Past the Light. I love Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Sadly, the narration was as bad as the story so they were uncomplimentary to each other.

What character would you cut from Dead If I Do?

The H/H and all the supporting cast.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your time if you are used to higher end stories ... I won't be buying more of this author.
