    Welcome to Sodom's Crossing, just south of the equator - well actually downtown Manhattan! From her billboard in Times Square to her rare vertical photos in Playboy - the world was finding it easy to be Vixen-ized. Vikki had sworn to her fellow castmates on Always Tomorrow that she would protect their secrets by being the sexy, unscrupulous siren on camera and off - to the hilt. Making sure that investigative reporter Dan Falkner would focus on the illusion rather than the sweet, shy woman Vikki really was. There was just one problem - Vikki never imagined how easy it would be to enjoy being a vixen....

    If you could sum up Video Vixen in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, intriguing, humorous


    What did you like best about this story?

    There are so many aspects to Vixen . . the contrast between the character and the actress is one of the main points. Of course as this ace reporter learns more and more about the lives surrounding the cast, it gives the reader a look through his eyes the difference between reality and PR. All in all it shows wonderful insight into the 'person' in a personality.


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

    This is my first encounter with Ms. Book, but I don't believe it will be the last.


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

    When Daniel learns begins interviewing the cast and learns about their private lives.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read - and enjoyed more than one of Ms. Chase's novels, and I am so pleased at how well they transform into audio form. It breathes more life into already wonderfully believable characters, I enjoyed the book and the audio was just as enjoyable, I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to just listen to a GREAT story.

    Welcome to Glacier Country! Luthor Devlin and his ranch hands were out tracking 20th-century rustlers when they stepped into a time warp! There on the jagged cliffs was a woolly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger, and a tawny, near-naked savage. She was a primal fantasy come true - that left him stunned!

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Dare the Devil the most enjoyable?

    It was more like listening to a movie than a book . . . a refreshing change. The extra audio experience truly made the novel come even more to life. The characters were extraordinarily voiced and all in all it was a joy to listen to . . . although I do admit at times I had to turn it off while I was driving . . . some of those scenes are not meant to be listenied to while in traffic . . that is unless you want to explain to a traffic officer why you suddenly were speeding!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The discovery that there was more to Luthor than what you would expect - the secondary story, something that Miss Chase is very apt at completing, rounded out the story making it a full dinner and not just the bare appetizer.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Lufhor and his crew first spot Cam on the ridge and think that they have traveled back in time Although when he sees her performing her stunts and his heart just about comes out his throat I found charming and endearing.


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

    I found myself lauging at the conceptions and misconceptons that Luthor had and also the way Cam discovers that there are really, careing men out there who are willing to bare their heart and soul.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought that the extra time and effort that Destiny Landon and Lee James showed their mark as professionals who gave a lot of time and effort into this project. They made the book even more enjoyable and it was obvious to me that they both enjoyed the book and I would certainly look for other books that they have worked on!
