Single-and-pregnant museum worker Melanie voices an idle wish while examining a Scottish artifact, that a Highland warrior would sweep her off her feet and help her forget her cheating ex.

It was romantic, I didn’t want to stop reading. The characters were engaging and I loved that Melanie was a strong independent women that equaled her partner and not a damsel in distress. Worth picking up this story.

A nerdy gemologist - Bellamy ‘Belle’ DeWinter - ends up the prisoner of a narcissistic yeti named Abigail Snow, who lives in a sparkling mansion made entirely out of blue quartz and whose loyal servants are living statues made out of semiprecious stones. When Bellamy starts to think the yeti girl might actually be kind of cute, he freaks out about his unsettling case of Stockholm Syndrome but decides to man up and help Abigail find a way to break the curse.

So I knew going into this story that this was not going to be a typical zombie story, and it wasn't! I felt it was original, although I grew to hate one of the characters a lot. I wanted them to die a vicious death. Although I still had questions at the end of the story, it was well written and the Narrator was good. I was enthralled and passionate about what was going to happen next. I was all for the survivors and at one point I felt sorry for the infected people. At least the innocent ones.

Overall it was a good story, and I will be reading to parallel stories that go along with it.

Incarceron is a prison so vast that it contains not only cells, but also metal forests, dilapidated cities, and vast wilderness. Finn, a 17-year-old prisoner, has no memory of his childhood and is sure that he came from Outside Incarceron. Very few prisoners believe that there is an Outside, however, which makes escape seems impossible.

Jenny was born on October 31st. She’s never gone trick-or-treating or celebrated her birthday beyond an initial taste of frosting that always puts her into a deep, drugged slumber - a sleep that protects her from family secrets and the horrible reality that dark holiday could reveal. What will happen when she finds her father’s journal and determines to stay awake on Halloween? Will she survive when the dreadful truth comes out?

I love short horror stories because they always have so much going on in such a short span. This story was no different. I started the story so mad at the family for what they were doing, but after all was explained, and the story progressed, I started feeling like the family was in the right! It makes me wonder about the secrets my own neighbors are hiding! Fun story.

What starts off as a simple retrieval of stolen goods turns deadly when Leena Espinoza discovers a girl stashed in a cellar, her guardian murdered. The crew has a soft spot for hard cases, and despite Delilah's odd behavior, offers help instead of turning her over to the authorities. But what they don't know might kill them.

Although a lot of earlier reviews have pointed that this story is a lot like Firefly, that because it is. It is unique in its own way, and that story is amazing, definitely strong female characters that you want to look up to. I didn't want to stop reading this story! great for YA and adults alike!

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.

Im glad that i came across this story. it was original, had great mystery to it, I couldnt figure out the "who done it" until the end, and was so happy with the ending. This story had me at the edge of my seat in anticipation. I am hoping in the next book or at least in the series that Zed meets someone! Such a bear!

How does a "vanilla" woman write a BDSM novel? With hands-on research! Kristen needs inspiration and personal experience for a sequel to her unexpected and kinky best seller. Devon, an ex-Navy SEAL and private club owner, is all too happy to help. Soon, a single weekend of hot and dirty sex turns into something more. But while they fight their connection, a killer has Devon in his sights. Will they survive with their hearts and lives intact?

You cant help but fall in love with the characters in this book! The narrator did a fine job bring the story to life, but I am in love with the author as of this moment.
Kristen is very relate able, and Devon ( and the rest of the team) just makes you want to get naked. There is drama that makes you want to cry, hold your breath, and shout in joy. For the BDSM community, she did wonderful and getting the lifestyle correct, unlike another author I can think of. I am currently enjoying the next book in the series and will be enjoying other works by this author as I find her writing to be crisp clean and refreshing.
