    Late in the night of April 14, 1912, the mighty Titanic, a passenger liner traveling from Southampton, England, to New York City, struck an iceberg four hundred miles south of Newfoundland. Its sinking over the next two and a half hours brought the ship—mythological in name and size—100 years of infamy.

    Would you try another book from Richard Davenport-Hines and/or Robin Sachs?

    No No and NO


    What could Richard Davenport-Hines have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I have no idea! I couldn't even finish it I kept falling asleep listening to it


    What didn’t you like about Robin Sachs’s performance?

    he didn't even seem to enjoy the story. He spoke in a monatone voice the entire time making the words just seem to drag on and on.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Just disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I would only recommend this book to someone who has a hard time sleeping at night. No medication help needed just plug this in. Don't know what else to say just aweful and sadly I haven't been able to return it to get something else.

    Emma Gavin writes best-selling novels about werewolves, but that doesn't mean she believes in them-and she certainly doesn't think she'll meet one. But that's exactly what happens when her books catch the attention of a rich and powerful pack of Manhattan Weres who have kept their existence hidden for centuries. Alarmed by the accuracy of her novels, they're determined to find out if a renegade is acting as her informant.

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

    Probably not this book, I found it slow in the beginning and then rushed at the end.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    ending seemed a little rushed


    Which character – as performed by Abby Craden – was your favorite?

    hmmm not sure


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I kind of tuned out in parts


    Any additional comments?

    Although I wasn't captivated by this book I do love Vicki's "nerd" series so I thought I would give this one a try and I will probably try to read the others in this series just to see if they get better, but I think I will skip purchasing the audio and use my credits on other books.

    Psychic M.J. Holliday finds herself in a witchy situation. When M.J. and her friends travel to a small town near Edinburgh, Scotland, to film the first installment of their new cable TV show Ghoul Getters, they find plenty of spooky action in a series of supposedly haunted caverns. But when they discover the body of a maintenance worker, the cause of death is reminiscent of an old legend involving a witch's wrath.

    Gilly will always be my favorite


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

    yes I would say when MJ found the ghost of the witch's sister looking for her baby in the castle was kind of sad.

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

    gives each of the characters life


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, I found my self wanting to listen to this book during any free time that I had and finished it quickly only to dowload the next one in the series and listen to that one too.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend that you check out the previous titles in this series. Not because they aren't stand alone books all by themselves but the other books are also really good and you get a little bit more back ground on the characters.

    In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man. Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Undead Sublet: A Free Story from 'The Undead in My Bed' to be better than the print version?

    I always enjoy the audio over the printed version because I can listen to it in the car while in traffic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Undead Sublet: A Free Story from 'The Undead in My Bed'?

    I think the back and forth between Tess and Sam was hysterical.


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

    I liked how she included accents to the character it made Sam feel like a real person.


    Who was the most memorable character of Undead Sublet: A Free Story from 'The Undead in My Bed' and why?

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    What made the experience of listening to Some Girls Bite the most enjoyable?

    I will admit that I had already read this book in print, but couldn't resist adding it to my audio list to listen to it again in the car on my kindle.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Merit is my favorite character. How can you resist a college student made vampire (without her consent) made Sentinel. Challenges the big scary Master of the house when she's just two days old (vampire days that is).


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    she did a great job portraying Merit


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

    The tension between Merit and Ethan.


    Any additional comments?

    I would Highly recommend this book to anyone who likes the girl to come out on top for a change ;D.

    Having narrowly averted an (under)world war, Cat Crawfield wants nothing more than a little downtime with her vampire husband, Bones. Unfortunately, her gift from New Orleans’ voodoo queen just keeps on giving - leading to a personal favor that sends them into battle once again, this time against a villainous spirit. Centuries ago, Heinrich Kramer was a witch hunter. Now, every All Hallows Eve, he takes physical form to torture innocent women before burning them alive.

    I wouldn't say better, but it is nice to have a voice behind the characters to give them life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cat is always my favorite character. She's stuburn, independent, and kicks butt.


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

    she gives the character's life


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

    there are both sad and funny parts in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Although this book wasn't as strong as the others in this series it was still a good read. Even though I didn't feel there was as much Cat/Bones action in this story I'm glad that I read it.

    What made the experience of listening to Buckhorn Beginnings the most enjoyable?

    How the author basically had two seperate stories under one cover was great.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Buckhorn Beginnings?

    I'd say having a woman in a strictly man only zone left some pretty funny moments in the stories.


    Which character – as performed by Isabelle Gordon – was your favorite?

    I'd say Honey was my favorite character. I connected with her the most I guess because I'm just as suburn and independent as she is.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the story line of these two stories. I will deffinately put more books from this author into my wish list to find out what happens to the other brothers to see what woman will come along to tame the rest of men under one roof. :D

    So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood.
