Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones comes a story in her Charley Davidson series…

When Donovan St. James’ precocious charge asks him—no questions asked—to tail the doctor who keeps their ragtag team patched up, he wants to refuse. Not because the saucy teen is getting too big for her britches, ordering him around like a mob boss, but because the woman stirs feelings in him he would rather not explore. However, when evil threatens the doc’s life, he realizes he has no choice. Sia saved his life once. He will try to return the favor. He just prays he can do it without losing his heart.

Running from the supernatural entity that has destroyed entire worlds to have her, Sia thought she’d found a haven on Earth with a motley team of warriors protecting the girl destined to save humanity. But when Sia’s found, she realizes something on this plane is more scrumptious than her: that very teen. So, she runs—and Donovan St. James follows. Nothing is more alluring than a scruffy biker with a lacerating gaze. And she vows to tell him that…if they survive.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Holy Moly Donovan!!

Wow, this was such a powerful story. Lots packed into such a short sweet book!!! I'm happy anytime I get a little more of Charley Davidson and her world. Add on the fact that Donovan has ALWAYS been one of my particularly favorite side characters, throw in Lorelei King's magnificent narration and that adds up to pure perfection on all fronts for me!!!

Way too rushed

I'm at a little bit of a loss on how to word this review. First of all, I LOVE this series. I have loved everything about it and especially love the way that Lorelei King does the narrations. The "sayings" and memes at the beginning of each chapter are hilarious...truly.

So, I couldn't wait to dive back in and find out what was happening in Charlie's world. Imagine my surprise when I actually felt a little lost with what was going on. I know, I read a lot of books, and I mean a lot. I kind of remember Donovan but the Doc? Did I know who she really was? I honestly do not remember learning that. And that's quite a BIG thing to learn. Being BFF's with Charlie for 100 years, I can't believe I forgot that (but it has been known to happen...) Anyway, the only reason I'm even mentioning this is that this format felt much too short for the story that was told. The story was interesting. There was a lot of information given out, but it was so freaking rushed.

And that ending. It was like, the necessary word count was achieved and it was like, "okay, and everything was a-okay. The End" Now, obviously I'm being facetious, but it honestly felt like, "what the heck just happened? That was it? Seriously?"

I'm not usually feeling cheated with a story from this author so it came as a bit of a surprise. But, to be fair, maybe I just have high expectations because she always delivers. Either way, I am definitely still onboard as we begin to make the transition to Beep's story (wait, is she even called that anymore....? )

Excellent, we'll worth the wait.

I love it, short but very sweet. Thank you Darynda Jones for this well written Charlie Davison fix I been jonesing for. You just got to love those hell hounds, lol. I listened to this while working out at the gym, good thing I had a mask on and the music was loud, to cover me laughing out loud. I highly recommend this book and everything Darynda. Narration by Lorelei King was excellent, which is no surprise.

Very nice!

Aahhh! Donovan got a happily ever after story too! Though, it certainly seemed that things were going to end in heartache! The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene!

Great short story

Charley and Reyes make a short appearance in Donovan's story but it's wonderful seeing them help Donovan out in his bar. I like getting "more" of the story about the time away from this plain. His attraction to Sia is really unexplainable to him but he can't resist her. Lorelei King is fantastic as usual narrating.

So thrilled they're back.

What a wonderful surprise. Although too short atleast we get to see more of some of my all-time favorite characters ever written, and it leaves me hoping for more adventures with Beep, her mom and dad and all the other wonderful characters from the Charley Davidson series ❤ Thank You!
