    Would you consider the audio edition of Iron Kissed to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the audio edition, but never read the print one


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Iron Kissed?

    When Mercy refused to give up her investigation even though she'd been asked by several to quit.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've listened to almost all of Mercy's adventures and this is in the top 4.


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

    Felt bad when Mercy had her free will taken away.

    Would you listen to Outlaw again? Why?

    I would absolutely listen to Outlaw again for many reasons, first of which it grabs your attention and holds on to it drawing you into the story deeper and deeper. There never is a time when you get bored with the fine details of the whole story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Outlaw?

    When Robin jumps the 15 feet from the sea wall to the ocean and starts to tow his wounded ex-comrade to shore.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Monarch realized his gun was jammed and he had to rescue the Secretary of State with an axe that he was unfamiliar with.


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

    When the cherry bomb was thrown at Monarchs face.

    Vampires don't exist...do they? Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck...but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure.He's been waiting forever for a woman like her...

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.
