What really blows you away with this new series is the fantastical world-building ability that Dani Harper has when she created this Fae Kingdom deep beneath the Welsh Hills with it's characters, creatures, myths, human prisoners and it's hidden enemies all held within. But worst of all is the innocent blacksmith Aidan who, in 1124, was kidnapped then cruelly turned into a Grim on the whim of a spoilt beautiful but evil Princess for not bedding her even though she tried to sexually lure him every time she saw him.
Brooke is a good witch who nearly brought her house down when she unexpectedly summoned Aidan during his desperate bid to escape his heartbreaking captivity that had spanned decades. There was a Hubble bubbling of sexual chemistry, plenty of toil as they tried to protect themselves, and their friends, from the wicked Fae Princess and yes trouble when they underestimated her reach. Brooke has three cats who nearly stole the show but so too did the sub story that involved Laurien The Lord Of The Hunt.
Aidan and Brooke don't get together until there's been plenty of back history referring to Aidan's kidnapping, his blacksmith's life and his awful transformation into a Grim (a big black frightening dog who are summoned when someone is about to die). And also how Brooke is struggling with her magic and what good close friends she has around her to support her..... who are going to be needed when Aidan 'drops' in from nowhere
Worth a credit? Mainly dual POV's but there is extra input from other characters too, a good well known and liked narrator but she didn't quite get to grips with all the male voices, romance, tender times leading to a few nice sex scenes, suspense, humor and a bit of a predictable twist. Pure fantastical fantasy at it's best with a downtrodden handsome hunky hero and a feisty witch who came to his aid and together they made some powerful magic. If you like the genre, IMO, you can't go wrong with this series and yes, it's a creditworthy listen.

I really dislike the narrator's voice. She reads the words well, but I don't like the sound of her voice. It might not bother anyone else, it's just my opinion.
The story itself was ok, although I liked the 1st book in the series better. Hopefully the last book will bring all the threads together for a grand finale.
