This is an easy listen for busy, stressed people! This was JUST what I needed. Great humour, brilliant alpha male, male and female readers who put great emphasis on dialogue....so enjoyable. Downloading book 2 now.

Jadee Trollis knows a little something about things that go bump in the night. Thanks to a father obsessed with myths, legends, and the paranormal, Jadee was dragged around the world in his pursuit of everything from ghosts to Sasquatch as a child. She got away from all that craziness in her teens, seeking a normal life as an adult. A trip to Alaska to visit her father quickly turns into a nightmare. Jadee ends up trapped in her father's tricked-out RV, hiding from the dangerous Vampires outside.

I did enjoy this book, but I am still waiting for any VLG book to beat 1 and 2 (Drantos and Kraven). They were so funny! I know this is the reverse of what many readers feel though. I liked the banter between the friends in this book, esp at the start. Looking fwd to reading WEN now.......I hope we hear from Bat and her sister from the 1st 2 books soon - I'm missing them. I hate to be critical because I really like Lauren Dohner as an author, but I think the phrase "You have no idea" is being over-used a little - please take this in the nice way it is intended :-)

I liked the first book in this series with Princess as the main character - and I really enjoyed the first section of this book. However, over time, Angel really grated on me. She was such a victim and the plot became very far fetched with her being kidnapped or another sig event literally every other page! She came across as a very weak and needy character that annoyed me intensely. Seems as though the author might have had to complete second part in record time or something! Quality simply not the same as first half. Bored by end. Joanna Wylde REAPER books far more enjoyable.

When Vince Durant left Bickford, Texas, he was a rowdy cowboy just looking for a good time. He also left unfinished business. He hadn't captured the Ghost, a wild stallion that roams the hills, and he never convinced Georgina Bickford to go out with him. Georgie might be a lost cause, but the Ghost has been calling his name ever since....

A real disappointment. Have really enjoyed this author in the past. This book was dull, dull, dull. Was not rooting for any of the characters at all. The person doing the voice was RUBBISH. Don't bother.

Really disappointed with this-it was very boring to be honest. Mia was very unlikable to me and in reality, I think Luke would have told her to "do one" a long time ago with her spoil brat behaviour!! First Cora Seton book that was a chore to listen to........

When county sheriff Cab Johnson gets a hunch, he's learned to trust it, and his hunch tells him Rose Bellingham is in a peck of trouble. Bad enough he's in love with her, bad enough she's already engaged to Jason Thayer. He's got to figure out what she's hiding before he loses her for good. Rose can't stand one more person meddling in her business, even if that person is a handsome, eligible sheriff. She's been controlled for far too long.

Rob Matheson's a fighter. Flattening enemies with his fists or with his legendary practical jokes, he's a tough enemy, and a troublesome friend. But Rob doesn't know how much longer he can keep up the act. As his buddies get married one by one, he's left with his lonely life - and the sinking feeling he lost more than his dreams when he traded them for a thick skin. Now Rob's father has issued a challenge - he'll give 200 acres of prime Montana ranchland to the first of his four sons to wed.

Great story-liked Morgan's strength in standing up to Rob's family. One issue-the pictures of the cover never match the description of the women!! In the last book, we were told Morgan had black hair like her half sister Claire......the cover of this book showed Morgan with blonde hair?! Confusing. Great story-lived it

All Jamie Lassiter wants is to marry his best friend's sister and settle down for the rest of his life in Chance Creek. He's saved his money, bought into the Cruz Guest Ranch and he's ready for that wedding, but Claire Cruz is nowhere to be found. Claire's too busy leaving Montana behind to care about cowboys or their wedding plans. She's got plans of her own - a trip around the world. She'll go as soon as she buys her tickets and she doesn't care if she ever sees Chance Creek again.

Love Cora Seton books: they are a little similar after reading a few, but I don't care! Laugh out loud funny at times. Liked Claire in this book a lot-not your typical female lead. I also like how fav characters from other books make an appearance-more scenes between Autumn and Ethan would have been welcome. There are unanswered qns in this book that will no doubt be addressed in next book.
