    As a guardian for his colony, Julian Sawyer travels to Earth to bring back the Chosen: women who possess energy potent enough to help revitalize his people. The stunning, silver-clad beauty who strides into his club one night radiates a sensual magnetism unlike any he's encountered, and Julian realizes that Asia Callahan is not just Chosen, she is his kindra: his one true mate. For months, Asia has tracked the beautiful and mysterious Julian across the country, convinced that he's behind the disappearance of her sister and a dozen other women.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'd recommend this book. I'd also say buy you a hard copy. This is one I'd read over and over again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunting Julian?

    I liked finding out that Julian had never had sex with any of the girls he's taken. It was the one surprise I didn't see coming.


    What does Xe Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a wonderful job with the male voices! I like that she makes you "see" them as well as feel and hear them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This whole series made me rethink how I see other's who are "different" from me. If you let your mind go...you can read between the lines and see how we are all prejudice and bias toward other races, creed, colors and classes.

    I was so pleasantly surprised that I had to write this review as soon as I finished the book. Why? Because for the first time I didn't find myself angry at, or wanting to slap the leading lady! This is the first and only book were I didn't have to make it pass unnecessary misunderstandings between our hero and his lady love. The problems they face in getting together was perfectly acceptable, they fit! I would have liked more interactions after the wedding, but even the short conclusion is exceptable! Overall it was a decent story. As always Rosalyn Landor gives a wonderful performance!

    This was a very good story, well written and faith building. My only problem with it, the narrator was bad. She read with no feelings and very little passion. If you can endure that and make it to the end of the story, it is well worth the credit!

Refusing to play those politics, he became a Runner - someone who makes sure planets get the weapons, medicine and supplies they need to survive.

    I don't know why it took me so long to read these books, but I'm so glad I did. This is a wonderful futuristic series, and well worth the price of the book. I don't like to post spoilers so I don't give away the book plot, but if you like Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series, you will like this one, although they are NOTHING alike. Again, I'm so happy I got into reading/listening to this series, and I'm looking forward to the new release coming out in May I believe.

As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk.

Ms. Ward can't write fast enough for me. This book takes you and grabs right from the first word till the last!

    WoW! What can you not say about the Black Dagger Brotherhood series? You can't call them boring, or dull. You can't say they are badly written or inconsistent. You can't say they don't pull you in and have you waiting with bated breath for the next installment. Ms. Ward has really hit the mark with these brothers!

    This book is about the Wrath, who is the reluctant king of the vampire race. He is strong, smart, wise, compassionate and handsome! What more could you wish for? Because of these outstanding traits you over look the fact that he is blind! Who cares! It in no way takes away from the character.

    Beth is half human half vampire. She is also the daughter of the now deceased Black Dagger Brother Darius. She is also well written, strong and intelligent. In my opinion, she turned out to be perfect for Wrath.

    I look forward to the next installment of the series in order to see how each couple fares.

    Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a single suitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal. She's had just about enough of being a respectable wallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking on a life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the ones described in a popular scandalous book. When she meets her brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke, it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .

    Story

    I'm a reader who likes to hear the "whole" story. That being said, I try to find good books that are written as a series. If a character grabs ahold and becomes real while reading its like they become family. The hero of this story is one who may fit that bill. Hawk is strong, handsome, honorable, and loyal. He's what most ladies want in their hero, so you will find he wins a place in your heart. Adrienne, who has been pulled from the future, on the other hand comes across, ( to me at least) , as being unsure of her own mind and feelings for most of the book. She was so back and forth that I was astonished Hawk found anything to love about her. She just never seemed to use her " modern thinking" brain for anything! She comes across as gulible and naive for the whole book! Considering she was from the future I expected better. She made me want to thump her in the head and scream, "Wake the @%$# up". I had to remind myself that she was just a character in a book.

    Overall, the story caught my attention enough to want to continue the series, but I'm hoping the next book, To Tame a Highlander, is much better. Yes, I would recommend the listen because Phil Gigante does an excellent job and brings each character to life, and that's what we all want while we listen!

    Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    Where does Lover at Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank the J. R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood series as some of the best audio books you can own! I love each and every story in the series and can't wait to hear what happens next! I would rank these books at the top of my list for "re-listen"!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is so hard to pick just one character as my favorite, but if I really have to choose it would be King Wrath! In each and every book he has been a powerful, strong, driving force to the brothers. But if you really get into the books, you will find yourself pulling for each and every brother in the series. Even the supporting characters find a place in your heart.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Always Wrath! His voice seems to come to life when he reads as the king.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I have to admit. I didn't know how I would feel listening to the love scenes between two men. Ms. Ward did an excellent job with all the love scenes, and I found myself wanting these two, ( Qhuinn & Blaylock), to get together. The other part that got to me was when Layla goes out to the meadow and Xcor comes to see her. I am hoping he can somehow get out of the wrong side of life and get together with Layla.


    Any additional comments?

    If you buy these books, start from the first book and work your way through. They are well worth the price and will not disappoint you in any way!

    What did you love best about To Marry an Heiress?

    The plot and the overall story was very good. Enjoyed hearing how they come to love each other.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Didn't really have a favorite character.


    What aspect of Vanessa Hart’s performance would you have changed?

    I would change how she reads! What I mean is, she READ's well, but seems to make a statement sound like a question, or a question sound like a statement. Seems to add comma's where there should be none, than she sounds flat and uncaring when she should be very excited! Really made it hard to listen to the whole story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I like how our hero comes to understand that he is in love with his new wife.

    To most, they are animals—even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And attorney Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair. It’s her job to defend those in need. But there’s absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can’t disguise his sheer strength.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd recommend the book but not read by Traci Odom! I really like the story line that Jennifer Ashley has taken with her writing. I even like her historical romance writings, and this series does not disappoint, but the narration really made the story dull and hard to listen too. If you want to read this one, I say get the hard copy you will enjoy it much more!


    What other book might you compare Pride Mates to and why?

    I would compare this book to those written by Jacquelyn Frank. I really enjoy her series also!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Traci Odom’s performances?

    No!! No!! NO!!!!!!!


    Could you see Pride Mates being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see this being a tv series. Who could star...maybe Jason Momoa. That is one fine man!


    Any additional comments?

    If you like reading the whole series and getting to know the character in each book, Jennifer Ashley delivers, but do yourself the favor, don't try to listen to Traci Odom read them. You'll just be disappointed!
