Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway - until he admits his student visa has expired and he's in the country illegally. Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him.

Maybe this is a generational thing but there was just way too much 'getting drunk to have a good time' going on in this book. The story line also seemed a bit contrived. I finished the book, but I will avoid the author in the future. The narrator did a good job all things considered.

John Charming isn't your average prince... He comes from a line of Charmings - an illustrious family of dragon slayers, witch-finders and killers dating back to before the fall of Rome. Trained by a modern day version of the Knights Templar, monster hunters who have updated their methods from chain mail and crossbows to Kevlar and shotguns, John Charming was one of the best-until a curse made him one of the abominations the Knights were sworn to hunt.

Meh...I finished this audiobook but it wasn't a satisfying experience. The characters, the storyline, the narration were just dull. I can't think of a single reason why I'd use a credit to purchase the next book in the series. Charming was in fact anything but....

Eric didn't ask to be a vampire. In fact he didn't even believe in them. Biting your own tongue with your fangs does a lot of convincing. Even so, being a part-time undead isn't as easy as you might think. It can let you hold down a day job, true, but sometimes the night "life" can be more than a little difficult, what with those bloodthirsty urges and predatory instincts kicking in.

I'm pleased I stumbled across this series. It reminds me a bit of the Gentleman Bastard Sequence and also the KingKiller Chronicles. I'm looking forward to delving into the second book in the series soon.

Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirotis London's rising star. And who better to benefit from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in the ton, the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the future duchess' patronage means prestige and fortune for Marcelline and her sisters. To get to the lady, though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose standards are as high as his morals are...not. The prize seems well worth the risk-but this time Marcelline's met her match.

I don't normally read romances but the reviews were really good for this book so I thought I'd give it a try. The fact that Kate Reading was the narrator added to my willingness to gamble with a credit. I enjoyed everything about this book...storyline, characters, setting. I plan to continue the series.
