    Nate Walker has never shied away from the hard road. Even when it meant leaving behind his family's wealth - and the fiancée who only wanted a rich man. Nothing was going to stop him from opening his own five-star restaurant.

    And he was on his way, until his car broke down on a dark road in the Adirondacks, leading him right to White Caps Inn - and Frankie Moorehouse.

    Would you listen to The Rebel again? Why?

    Yes. I really enjoyed listening to The Rebel, because it delivered a terrific story rich with emotion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rebel?

    I can't choose just one memorable moment because there were so many. J.R. Ward weaves the lives of her characters together to create a very intriguing story. Each person has his/her own unique obstacles to overcome. I enjoy hearing it all unfold.


    What about Gayle Hendrix’s performance did you like?

    Gayle Hendrix's performance is perfect for the mix of characters. The cadence of her voice maintains the pace of the story to effect.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Take the heat, stay in the kitchen. You won't be disappointed.

    What did you love best about A Righteous Kill?

    Not only was this a "killer" story, but it was expertly crafted with wit, charm, physical and emotional tension. While I have read and listened to several hundred books, I'm always delighted when I find one that I could read/listen to over and over again; this one was no exception. I experienced what I call "reader's remorse" at the end of the book because I didn't want it to end. I hope that this book is the kick off to an exciting new series. As they say in Hollywood, "The show must go on!"


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

    The plot had some wonderful twists and turns which kept me riveted and begging for more.


    Which character – as performed by Derek Perkins – was your favorite?

    I am the type of reader who likes to appreciate each character for his/her own personal merit. What I liked about these characters was that each had the very essence of humanity that kept them real and interesting; each was so masterfully developed that it was difficult to find fault with any of them, even the bad guy. I understood and enjoyed them all.


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

    Indeed! This is why I enjoyed this book so much. I felt the full range of emotions from beginning to end. Without that kind of awareness, it would feel empty; it was anything but empty.


    Any additional comments?

    Kerrigan Byrne, give me more!

    Meet the MacLauchlan Berserkers - Roderick, Finn and Connor. They are three of the world's Unwanted. On a snowy Solstice night, their tale becomes one of blood and vengeance, of love, redemption, and forging the bonds that make a family.

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

    "Unleashed" provides three charmingly captivating stories which combine elements of myth explored in a uniquely clever style. Before this novel, I had never heard of Berserkers; now I can't wait to hear more. Byrne's prose reads like poetry, creating visual images and evoking powerful sentiments, giving readers a full range of emotional experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all of the characters for different reasons with one reason outstanding; while many were supernatural beings, they all shared characteristics that show us human frailty in one way or another. Everybody can identify with this.


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

    This was my first experience listening to Derek Perkins's narration and while I am a stranger to his works; I am no stranger to excellent narration. With a library of over 400 audiobooks, I believe I'm qualified to make this distinction.

    Ruthless might as well be Gray Bennett’s middle name. When the renowned Washington, D.C. insider talks, powerful people listen. But Gray hasn’t come home to Saranac Lake to play politics. Or play at all. A tragedy has shaken the unshakable Gray Bennett to his hardened core. And so has the most unlikely of women. The mousy redhead who used to run around the Moorehouse B and B - the one he never noticed - is now all fiery hair and lush curves. But sweet Joy Moorehouse is too innocent for a cynic like him.

    What made the experience of listening to The Player the most enjoyable?

    J. R. Ward knows how to deliver an emotionally rich story. I really feel something for the characters, whether it be frustration, sadness or happiness; my emotions are touched.


    Any additional comments?

    About two-thirds of the way through the book, just as some of the main issues were nearing resolution, the narration changed to that of a completely different book! I was so very dissatisfied. I called customer service to make them aware of the problem and they reassured me that it would soon be resolved. To my knowledge, it has not yet been fixed. I am still waiting for someone from customer service to contact me and let me know that the problem has been resolved allowing me to reload it to my library. Until this happens, my advice to you is this: DON'T PURCHASE THIS BOOK, unless you like to hang indefinitely waiting for the ending. Why torture yourself?
