    Pull down the shades and settle in for pleasure with this trio of erotic novellas - handpicked by Susie Bright - showcasing stories that are hot and masterful. Susie Bright, hailed by The New York Times as "the avatar of American erotica", is the undisputed grandmaster of the genre. Now she has handpicked three rising stars - new masters - whose stories will delight, arouse, and captivate you. Connected by a central theme - the idea that one sexual moment can change a person forever - each story is wildly different from anything you have read or heard before.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More interesting story. I am not even sure, if the story I was reading, was the same character, or part of the original story. Ughhh!


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Probably not, I couldn't get passed chapter 4.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The voice was not consistent, with the character.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no, not really.

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    What did you love best about The Kitchen House?

    I could relate to the characters, it was so easy to get to know each and every one of them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say Belle. She was easy to like. She went through so much, but she had a positive outlook on life.


    Have you listened to any of Orlagh Cassidy and Bahni Turpin ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first time i heard their performances, they did an excellent job.


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

    This book really moved me. At the end when the writer, explained how she wrote the book, i got goosebumps. I almost wished she would of shared this, in the begining. I think it would of been more magical that way.


    Any additional comments?

    I heard there might be a book two, if there is, i cant wait! I wished the book never ended.

    Sarah Price has never regretted trading her MFA for a steady job so that her husband, Nathan, could write fiction. But at age 35, her world is turned upside-down by a shocking revelation: Nathan's upcoming novel, Infidelity, is based on fact. Reeling from his betrayal, Sarah is plagued by dark questions. How well does she really know her husband? More important, how well does she know herself?
