Publisher's Summary

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is...different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, "normal" is a bit of a stretch for Dina.
And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night....Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans - an alpha-strain werewolf - and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

Story was good, narrator did not fit.

I had first read this book when it came out. I loved the premise that it was an "urban fantasy" with a sci-fi twist. I am a big fan of the author, so when I saw that the second book of this series was coming out, I decided to brush up on the first one by listening to the audio version. I was a bit disappointed in the choice of narrator. Looking at other audio books from the same author, it appears as though they contract the same woman to do all their books. While she is a very fine reader, her take on the character and the accent she used just did not fit. The main character of this story is a young girl in her twenties. Although she originated from Georgia and settled down in Texas, I would almost rather the narrator not use an accent then try a southern one. Between her accent and her cadence, she sounded more like a matriarchal southern belle than a young woman in her twenties. It was hard for me to believe this character was a young woman just starting out and rather an older woman who wanted to serve lemonade and cookies to the neighborhood kids. I think that, although she may have been fine for other books, they may want to rethink this narrator for the next installment.

Interesting series start, narration annoyed me.

The narration volume going so quiet practically whispers I couldnt hear it and that means I probably missed alot of important info. oh well, not about to go back and listen again anytome since I am still recovering from the anooyance with how she said "wuff" or "woof" instead of wolf. seriously, by the end I cringed and groans aloud every time I heard it. The story was interesting a good start to a new series didn't grab me as much as the Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series.
