Magic is real. Shifters exist. Trixie Russell knows this. Everyone does. But no one told her about the monster lurking in the basement of the dragon’s castle. Not until it was too late. Victor Petrov is ancient, and vampires his age should not lose control of their hunger. And yet that’s exactly the problem that landed him chained in a dragon’s dungeon. Then in walks a human female with cotton candy hair who smells like sunshine, her pulse a sweet melody in his parched ears, and the fragile thread of his control snaps. Again.

The Not This series is one of my favorites. The storylines are a bit sweet with just enough bite (no pun intended) and wit to keep it real. Victor, a vampire with control issues, and Trixie, a sweetheart who's a genuinely nice, just turned vamp, have wonderful chemistry and their banter had me laughing thru most of the story. B.J. Harrison does a marvelous job with the voices. All in all, a must read/listen from me. Enjoy!

I've said it before and will say it again, I love this series! Devlin and Taylor burn up the pages with chemistry and there's plenty of action to keep the pages turning. With each book the world this is set in is enhanced, made a bit more complex and leaves the reader looking for the next up.

Whispers of the Locke Brothers fill the town, facts and reality twisted to fit what these motherf--kers believe they know about us.That we’re sadistic bastards, incapable of any real emotions or fear. Maybe they’re not wrong about that…Aston Locke - Damaged, Sterling Locke - Savage, and Ace Locke - Twisted.

This series is dark and dirty. The Locke Brothers do things we all sometimes want to and do it without apology. Great writing and stunning narration from Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott bring three tales of good men who do bad things for all the right reason. And how they find love with unexpected women. A great listening experience. Enjoy!

Former Navy SEAL Logan O'Connor is big, rough, and a little wild. He thrived as a SEAL...until he trusted the wrong woman. After a horrible betrayal that almost left him dead, he now works for his best friend at Treasure Hunter Security. He doesn't like the sand, the jungle, or the mosquitoes, but he gets the job done - protecting archeological digs and expeditions. What he likes even less are liars. As he finds himself heading to Peru with a cool, classy CEO in search of her kidnapped brother, Logan knows one thing: Sydney Granger isn't telling him the entire truth.

This is a terrific series that caters to both action and romance junkies. From the sands of the Egypt (Undiscovered), the jungles of Cambodia (Uncharted) now to the jungles of Peru, the people of Treasure Hunter Security find love and adventure. Each story presents the history and mythology of an area that encourages the reader to explore the background of ancient cultures.
I really enjoyed Logan and Sydney's story and found it a fast paced, well written read.

ASH is #14 in the Hell Squad series and moves the saga along at a fast pace with lots of action, both in battle and in the bedroom. I love the relationship between Ash and Marin. As with other characters in this series, Ash is a tough guy who could be easily pigeon-holed as just a biker bad boy but is a character with hidden depths. Marin, our leading lady, is a bit more awkward than previous heroines. She is a genius who tends to get too caught up in her work and is a little out of her comfort zone when outside her tech group. But the as a couple, they work. I think that this is one of my favorites in the series to date and, as with all of Ms. Hackett's series, it places a couple more pieces of the puzzle on the table.
Love this series and if you haven't started, book 1 Marcus is free on Amazon. (What are you waiting for?)

I love this book! One of my top 3 genres is syfy romance and this one has a great twist on the usual alien kidnapping. Ms. Hackett flips the usual trope and creates a woman from Earth that is just as bada$$ as the hero making for a fast action, exciting read. Throw in a world unlike any other,a great sidekick, andin narration by Vivienne Leheny and we have a definite winner! Enjoy!

I easily transitioned from high school jock to egotistical playboy. And when the chance to leave Blue Ridge presented itself, I signed on, dropping everything without so much as a second thought. Settling into the lifestyle of a professional athlete, I indulge in the pleasures of my high-profile status. The only nod to my roots is my annual trip for a celebrity spotlight fix, but when I receive a call that forces an impromptu return home, everything I left behind comes barreling to the surface.

Great writing and wonderful narration allow the listener to get deep into the characters of Branch and Ragan in a story of rising above the demons of their pasts. It was a little tough to listen to Ragan's memories and Branch coming to grips with his childhood but the author eases the listener through it. The only downside is this is part one of two (you know, duet) but I look forward to the rest of this tale. Enjoy!

I started this book and could not put it down. Picking up where book #2 left off, this is Smith & Kinzey's story. His baggage has baggage and she too soft hearted for her own good, making them the perfect couple and I love 'em. Plenty of action and steam, with exciting narration from Stella Bloom, Mission: Her Security is a sure winner! Enjoy!

Another great narration from Stella Bloom. Book 2 in the Team 52 series takes the reader to the jungles of Guatemala and back in an action packed tale of mystery and romance with some history thrown in. January and Seth are a fun to read about, neither one inclined to back down and always ready to sass back. As with Ms. Hackett's Treasure Hunter Security series, it's fun to check out the history behind the story. Great series!
Enjoy!

Camryn McNab knows love is a lie. Okay, maybe not for everybody - her fellow soldiers on Squad Nine are in love in the middle of a vicious alien attack. But it's not for her. She comes from two people incapable of love. For now, her life is about survival, fighting to protect others, and kicking some alien raptor butt. What she doesn't need is a certain wild, bearded, tattoo-covered soldier always underfoot, messing with her things, and driving her crazy. But no matter how hard she tries to outrun Hemi Rahia, she can't seem to shake him, and a terrified part of doesn't even want to....

As we come closer to just what the Gizzida have in store for Earth, we get the first of the Berserkers stories. Hemi and Cam are like fire and gasoline and they've been dancing around each other from the start. Both are strong characters and while Hemi is well grounded, Cam has her demons and has a hard time overcoming them. Plenty of action to move the story with enough humor to make it a fun read.
