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

    In the top ten of my list. Downloaded all three books and completed the whole trilogy in two days flat!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Malachi for his very strong character. He is the epitome of a hero. I also like Lela.


    Which character – as performed by Amy McFadden – was your favorite?

    Sarah Fine is a very talented writer indeed. Her two main characters were amazing and the rest of the secondary characters were good.


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

    I like Amy McFadden performance very much. She does a good job. I will be looking out for more books read by her.

    Nothing ruins a romantic evening like a brawl with lowlifes - especially when one of them later turns up dead and my date, Detective Isabella Cherabino, is the number one suspect. My history with the Atlanta PD on both sides of the law makes me an unreliable witness, so while Cherabino is suspended, I'm paying my bills by taking an FBI gig. I've been hired to play telepathic bodyguard for Tommy, the 10-year-old son of a superior court judge in Savannah presiding over the murder trial of a mob-connected mogul.

    What did you love best about Vacant?

    I loved Daniel Thomas May's performance as always. His portrayal of Adam Ward's character like when he faces his problems and weaknesses with such strength and determination to overcome them that make me cheer for him when he succeeds! I like the ending when he and his love decide their future.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vacant?

    When he saved Tommy from his kidnapper.


    What about Daniel Thomas May’s performance did you like?

    I like Daniel Thomas May's performance. His voice is so soothing and calm. His portrayal of all the different characters are so easy to follow. He was superb in C J Cherryh's "Foreigner" series and I collect every book of that series. I will also be collecting this series for my library as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so glad that I did not listen to the review given by somebody who criticized the book. I purchased it despite the review because I like Danial Thomas May's narration and I was not disappointed. The book was well written and I will be looking forward to the next book which hopefully will be soon.

    What did you love best about Burn for Me?

    I like the interaction between the two main characters, "Mad" Rogan and Nevada. He is so arrogant, so confident of himself. Nevada is independent and so caring of her family. The secret that Rogan is hiding. Nevada's grandmother and her mother both strong women.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Burn for Me?

    There are too many to count.


    What about Renee Raudman’s performance did you like?

    Very good! One of my favourite narrators.


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

    I laughed a number of times. I enjoyed it when Rogan presented Nevada with a bouquet of carnations and she closed the door in his face. What he did after that was so funny!

    I hope Bk 2 will be published soon.

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

    I love it! I have finished Bk 2 of Connie Suttle's Blood Destiny Series and I am now waiting anxiously for Bk 3. I am completely hooked on it. Blood Passage definitely rank among my Top 5 list of Paranormal books. I am so thrilled when Audible came out with Bk 2. Please keep the rest of the series coming ASAP?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lissa of course. I like her strong character and her very admirable personality. She is caring, loyal and courageous. She is brave to speak out when she see the need and also to fight to protect her friends regardless of the cost to herself in doing so. A true heroine in every way.


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

    I like Traci Odom's performance very much. Her characters were spot on. Please do not change the narrator for the rest of the series.


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

    The last part when she was so disappointed with the Vampire Council and their unfairness towards her that she ended up doing something hazardous to herself (no spoiler).


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Audible for the first two books. Please release the rest of the series ASAP!

    Finding a mate is the farthest thing from alien warrior Jared Bennett's mind. After years of exile on Earth, the king is close to developing a weapon that will alter the fabric of time and hopefully bring peace to his own people. But a chance encounter with scientist Kelsey Wells ignites a scorching desire far more consuming than talks of rebellion. To Kelsey, Jared's heritage is exotic and alarming - nothing like the logical, scientific facts of her own world. But despite her fears, she can't deny the heated response of her body every time the magnetic leader comes near.

    There were many wonderful moments. When she was abducted and Jared Bennett went all out to save her and when he almost died she was willing to die with him. That moment was so.... touching indeed. So much love!!

    Freelancing for the Atlanta PD isn’t exactly a secure career; my job’s been on the line almost as much as my life. But it’s a paycheck, and it keeps me from falling back into the drug habit. Plus, things are looking up with my sometimes-partner, Cherabino, even if she is still simmering over the telepathic Link I created by accident. When my ex, Kara, shows up begging for my help, I find myself heading to the last place I ever expected to set foot in again—Guild headquarters—to investigate the death of her uncle.
