Awakened after millennia, dragon warrior Reaper is ready to fulfill his destiny...until he sees Greer. With one glimpse, everything Reaper has ever known throughout his very long life is irrevocably changed.

I loved this book...
I love the narrated version even more.
Jeffrey Kafer is a fantastic storyteller who brings every character to life. He handles every single character in a way you think they are actually in a room with you.
Greer and Reaper have an abundance of chemistry between them from the get-go.
We get the things we always love from this author.
Action, Suspense, and Love. In this one, we get laughter as well.
The perfect couple to wrap up this series with. Of course, we find many of the characters from the series in this book as well.

Tori is off to California, and everything she knew and those she recently met were suddenly gone from her life? Where is Eli? Like everything in her life it all goes poof... Tori is still and likely will always be struggling with her and in this story we find her reaching for the bottle. Until something as simple as strings bring her joy. The one spot of happiness in this story for our Tori is the music store where she gets a job... And someone from her past makes an appearance. The narrator seems to miss many words throughout the story which does take from an audio book. She is clearly spoken which is a plus. Although there seems to be that missing ooomph you want from the narrator when playing each character.

Hypnotized by that which were thought to be mere myths, the most precious of all things - a vampire’s bloodmate.

This story didn't disappoint when I read it and it blew me away listening to it. The narrator handles each character flawlessly, and brings each person to life. Very well spoken, speaks with emotion which is wickedly great in this story. Victor is an ancient, who normally has things under control until the Thirst... Vampires, Dragons, Wolves, and Elves Oh My!!! Kimber is his... No one is taking her unless they want to die this Victor vows...

Hilarious, funny, sweet and sexy yep you get all that in this one. The narrator handles each character smoothly and clearly. Betty runs animal shelter, she was kicked out of her old pack because she can't shift so she has lived her life as human. Ken is the adopted son of the Alpha of New Port and he will kill Betty if she can't shift so what is Ken going to do? I loved this story when I read it over a year ago and to now listen well it just pops to life.

I read the book a few years ago and It was fantastic to see them now on audio. I love this story, Tori is one very damaged female but she finally gets her revenge on those who have hurt her. Eli is suppose to protect her but his feelings are going in another direction wrong or right? Well I guess we will learn more in the next stories. The narrator does a wonderful job in bringing this story to life. She is well spoken, and very clear to understand which always makes an audible so much better.

Eoin Grant hasn't encountered a female of his race in decades, and this crazy person's scent declares her unmated. Fate set her in his path, and he won't let this opportunity slip through his claws. No matter how wary she is of him. After all, how many chances does a dragon have at finding love? But fate can be a crueler mistress than his perfect mate. Of all things, she thinks she's human. But she's been around enough shifters to know the look, and she won't go down that road again.

Being a waitress pays the bills, but Jessica knows she is so much more. She’s a newbie witch, a rookie cryptozoologist, and a young woman with a secret wish for a hot romance with a real Shifter. You know, the kind of romance she reads about, the kind that would knock her socks off. With no hope for paranormal excitement in Chicago, Jessica packs up and heads for a small town in the country which is rumored to be a hub of shifter activity. Certainly, she can find at least one hot Shifter to dig her stilettos into. Right?

In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, only one male has ever been expelled—but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice. Haunted by visions of a female he could not save, he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him. However, he is not prepared for what he must face in his quest for redemption.

Murhder is back!!!!! The author brought back so much in this story and the very reason I fell inlove with it. All of the Brotherhood are on board in this book, however John Matthew and Xhex play a large part for many reasons. We get a human doctor also who works for a company that is experimenting on vampires? The narrator brought this story to life in so many ways. Each character I felt like were there talking to me. Fantastic story and I can not wait to see what Mrs. Ward has instore for us next.

Wanting her means putting a target on her back.... Layla’s taste in men runs toward the epic side of awful. With one murderous ex-fiancé already behind her, she’s attempting to start over in Redemption Harbor with the help of her bestie, Nova. And wine. Lots of wine. The very thing that helps her make another epic mistake - trying to kiss Xavier, one of her newest friends. So what if he’s sexy, funny, and has completely taken over her fantasies? Relationships and Layla don’t mix. And Xavier is clearly not interested anyway.

This book is high suspense, action and oh yes the hotness is melting. The narrator handles all characters perfectly and she is clear spoken, and literally makes this story come to life.

I have read other stories in this series however not this one and when I had the chance to do an audible this one hit the spot. Rafael heads up a large corporation with his brothers. They also deal with the bad and evil in New Atlanta. Kaya is the Police Chief and she has had enough of the bad guys. When Kaya finally meets the elusive millionaire everything that could twist her panties in a knot does. This isn't instant-love between this couple and I enjoyed that. We get suspense, action and yes indeed hot steamy romance. The narrator has a deep baritone voice which adds quite a bit to the intense sections of this story. I like when they can do that it makes a story pop and come to life. Also I forgot to mention this story contains Hot, and Sexy Gargoyles!!
