    Don’t Sweat. Don’t Laugh. Don’t draw attention to yourself. And most of all, whatever you do, do not fall in love with one of them. Gene is different from everyone else around him. He can’t run with lightning speed, sunlight doesn’t hurt him and he doesn’t have an unquenchable lust for blood. Gene is a human, and he knows the rules.

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

    The actual writing itself was great! AND of course the sincerity of the characters within the prose.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The setting and the actual vampires. blood drinkers should be vicious and disturbing.


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

    Sean is fluid but the only problem I had was sometimes the lead character seems to forget he's being hunted and he keeps talking instead of moving. I know its a good story when I"M yelling at them myself.


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

    Something like (See vampires the way they should be and Pretty and shiny Aint it!)


    Any additional comments?

    Just make the lead character run! more! and stop thinking so much when its time to get going. :)

    When a figure from Ethan's dark past makes a splashy debut in Chicago, Merit and her master don't know whether he's friend or foe.

At an exclusive society soirée attended by the upper echelons of the human and supernatural worlds, Merit and Ethan barely stop the assassination of a guest. When the target turns out to be a shady businessman with a criminal edge, Merit suspects a human vendetta. But the assassins have fangs.

    What made the experience of listening to Dark Debt the most enjoyable?

    It was the same type of book I expect from Chloe


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Merritt of course


    Which character – as performed by Sophie Eastlake – was your favorite?

    Well the usual suspects of course. But I'm looking for the big prophecy to come bout. The vampire pregnancy.


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

    what they don't tell you about Vampires

    What other book might you compare Hidden Wings to and why?

    Jessica Shirvingtons Wings.


    What about Susannah Jones’s performance did you like?

    Aziza Jane Stewart is living on borrowed time, and making a few mistakes in London seems like a good way to go out with a bang. But when two compelling strangers draw her into an ancient conflict, she realizes her curse isn't about death at all...it's about the power within her. The sexy giant following her says he can smell trouble on her skin, the smokeless fire and magic of the demons he was born and bred to hunt. Brandon may be an enforcer, but his reaction to her is anything but adversarial.

    Would you listen to Burn with Me again? Why?

    I already have.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Aziza was a great new character to the supernatural world. She is the sexiest character that hit the scene in a while.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes and know. He presented it well to me because I'm involved in the supernatural doctrine but for the new reader, he had to describe the same thing twice, which was good, but he just can't do it thin the same paragraph or chapter. I'm glad he didn't.


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

    I'm a stickler for the small things, so, when I heard two re-peats, I was a little annoyed with the technicians slip. It wasn't the reader or the writer. There was a cut to be reread and they didn't space it out far enough. I caught it but the lay listener would not have. so we're good!


    Any additional comments?

    this first installment of heat, sex and power was daring and good as hell... Keep it up my brother. just don't wait so long in-between books.

But when a mysterious plane crash kills off the heir presumptive of the Sandersville coven she has no choice. After stepping in to fill her sister’s shoes, Katherine realizes she didn’t have a clue - faery wars, depressed trolls and angry unicorns are just the beginning. For centuries, her family has served the high Queens on both sides of the Atlantic but it is a well-known rule that mid-level witches stay away from high-level Queens.

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

    absolutely. The only thing that is disappointing is the waiting. I now understand the reason why my friends, family and readers of my first book, tell me their going to have to reread the first book to remember why they liked it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the continuity between the writer and reader. The character differences was pronounced by the reader and that means a lot when audio is involved.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Yes she did. It was interesting how it was done actually. How she realized the differences between her mothers actual faces. She knew of the motherly side but the queenly side was eye opening.


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

    I found just bright spots in this articular reading. She was very thorough and she took her time. so, no I didn't find anything.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes. However long it takes to write the next installment. Please let us know at the end of each book how long it will be for the next one. LOL

    Any additional comments?

    Just that there was a few scenes that made me scream with how it was written. The characters should have came to a different conclusion and the way the acted to me was unintelligent and at best, childish. Even though it was a good story, I had to give a bad mark against story.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hatch to be better than the print version?

    I never read the printed version but I wouldn't need to read it with the performance of Tim Bruce.


    What other book might you compare Hatch to and why?

    Well, I could have given it another book similar but it wouldn't do it justice. I believe Hatch would be a stand alone book. you can't compare the righteous hero in hatch with the selfishness of the other books character. even if the character in the other book finally coming around at the end.


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

    Tim was perfect for this book. all characters were geared for his brand of action.


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

    nope but it raised my blood pressure of few times.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see a book two in this trilogy.
