    Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin....

    "Fun book, spotty character voices"
    Overall

    The book is all that it is meant to be. It is a breezy, fun vampire-human love against all odds story. What messed with my fun were some of the voices chosen by the narrator. They sometimes did not match the characters well. Vanda sounded so froggy that it was distracting. Shanna (from How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire) sounded too airy and a bit ditzy. A couple of the other voices were like that as well. They did not mess up the story, but I had to work to ignore them so that I could continue to enjoy the book.

    Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits - talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter. Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires, but when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

    donna says: "decent story but does have a few flaws.."
    "Speed it up! It improves the narration."
    Overall

    I haven't read the Karen Chance novels so this narration was my first exposure to her work. At the regular speed for the recording, I was getting frustrated with the storyline and the characters, especially Cassie, because of the slow-mo narration. As the main character, Cassie just seemed off kilter and not very appealing when I listened at the normal paint-drying speed for this narration. After I sped up the recording (using the Audible App.) to 1-1/2 or 2 times the normal speed, the narration seemed to fit the text much better and the characters came to life. I had to do the same with another narration by Cynthia Holloway. So using deliberate speed might be the trick to cure the monotonous quality of the recording and to get a better sense of the book's story and characters.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "Great Book! I love the narrator."
    Overall

    I saw the complaints about the voice for Bones and I don't agree. The tone of the voice does not detract from the character's allure. I think that the books in this series are well narrated by Tavia Gilbert. Her voice selections fit the characters well. Overall, the Night Huntress stories will draw you into a very interesting world of love, friendship, family, and fighting for a cause. They are an indulgent paranoramal escape.
