    Frannie Darling was once a child of London's roughest streets, surrounded by petty thieves, pickpockets, and worse. But though she survived this harsh upbringing to become a woman of incomparable beauty, Frannie wants nothing to do with the men who lust for her, the rogues who frequent the gaming hall where she works. She can take care of herself and feels perfectly safe on her own-safe, that is, until he strides into her world, and once again it becomes a very dangerous place indeed.

    If you could sum up Surrender to the Devil in three words, what would they be?

    An interesting diversion.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Easy to follow.


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

    Yes! She is remarkably talented and my favorite narrator. Ms. Erickson's british accent was spot on and smoothly delivered.


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

    Not really.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Ann says: "Over the top"

    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    Yes, Nora Roberts, maybe not Katherine Kellgren.


    Has Dark Witch turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I would be wary of another one by Nora Roberts.


    Did Katherine Kellgren do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, however her performance seemed forced and too aggressive.


    Do you think Dark Witch needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, once was enough.

    She may be aloof, and more pretty than gorgeous, but Alani Rivers is the kind of woman a hot-blooded mercenary can't forget, no matter how hard he tries. So when Jackson Savor wakes up next to the naked, sleeping beauty with no memory of what happened he knows he's been drugged - even if Alani doesn't. After she was kidnapped, Alani vowed never to trust another man again. Still, something about this strong, sexy hero with the tender touch makes her want to believe him. Will the truth bring them closer than ever?

    What disappointed you about Savor the Danger?

    The story was weak and the summary of the books accolades were misleading. Although I've listened to stories by this narrator, I found this story was told with a mundane, uninteresting performance, which, in fairness to the narrator, may have been due to the story itself. The fact that it received such a high rating is a mystery. The story lacked form and flow with a vague uninteresting plot. The fact that I am returning this book says it all. Don't waste your money on this one.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lori Foster again?

    Doubtful.


    How could the performance have been better?

    There could have been a story line and plot .


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

    Very disappointing!


    Any additional comments?

    Couldn't wait for the romance and intrique to begin. It did not.

    There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother.

    Where does Fallen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was a good read. The characters were mostly believable and the story had a appreciable level of mystery and surprises. I don't think I would have made the title character so flawed and inept.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Some what.


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

    No, this was the first.


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

    No.
