At a party for her ex-boyfriend, she meets the unusually attractive Oswald Grant, who sweeps her off her feet. But when he bites her in the heat of passion and she instantly falls ill, Milagro realizes Oswald is not just any fabulous man - he's a vampire.

    After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn - the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies - to make her an offer she can't refuse.

    If you could sum up Neanderthal Seeks Human in three words, what would they be?

    Original, quirky, and fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The originality and eccentricity of the characters.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Grace – was your favorite?

    I loved Janie.


    If you could take any character from Neanderthal Seeks Human out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Janie I would meet for coffee and desert, Quinn I would take to dinner.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. The characters were original and well developed. I hated for the book to end, and I can not wait for the sequels to be made into audio books. I normally don't write reviews, but I felt that I owed the author a thank-you note because I had such a good time listening to her book. Please, please, please get the other books in the series in audio form.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    In Rocket Science, Jay Lake's first novel, Vernon Dunham's friend Floyd Bellamy has returned to Augusta, Kansas after serving in World War II, but he hasn't come back empty-handed: he's stolen a super-secret aircraft right from under the Germans. Vernon doesn't think it's your ordinary run-of-the-mill aircraft. For one thing, it's been buried under the Arctic ice for hundreds of years. When it actually starts talking to him, he realizes it doesn't belong in Kansas-or anywhere on Earth.

    What did you like best about this story?

    It is a fun story, but with a message. I liked the main character. I felt like I knew him by the end of the book.


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

    The voice was the main character. You could picture him in your mind.


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

    No.

    Kibou-daini is a planet obsessed with cheating death. Barrayaran Imperial Auditor Miles Vorkosigan can hardly disapprove—he’s been cheating death his whole life, on the theory that turnabout is fair play. But when a Kibou-daini cryocorp—an immortal company whose job it is to shepherd its all-too-mortal frozen patrons into an unknown future—attempts to expand its franchise into the Barrayaran Empire, Emperor Gregor dispatches his top troubleshooter, Miles, to check it out

    Overall

    There are very few books that I would consider awarding a five star rating. The Miles Vorkosigan stories, in my opinion, deserve every star. The books are a perfect blend of plot and character. This new addition is no exception.
