    Two all-new novellas that cross the boundaries of desire. "Exiled" by Maya Banks: Enticed to the island paradise where an enigmatic prince is living in exile, beautiful, virginal Talia is introduced to a world of forbidden pleasure where the prince's every whim is fulfilled and her fantasies are rendered in exquisite detail. "Sway" by Lauren Dane: Levi Warner is an established, older man - wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book was not my style at all. Gross, not represented accurately in the description, and frankly, I am embarrassed that I even started the book. I am not into weird sex triangles where a woman is used as a toy by multiple men.


    Has Cherished turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will never purchase another book by this author.

    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    What did you love best about Poison Princess?

    I loved the spot on narration, which perfectly suited the incredible story. I have been rechecking regularly for book two. The two narrators , Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs, gave me shivers with their ability to draw me into the book. I felt like I was there, watching the story unfold before my mind's eye.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I couldn't guess what was coming, which is my litmus test for a good book.


    What about Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs ’s performance did you like?

    ALL OF IT! Amazing!


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

    I found myself listening with the lights on...parts of it really had me goosed. Really. I got goosebumps and chills, but also found myself laughing out loud and wanting to cheer.


    Any additional comments?

    Kresley Cole has become my favorite author. With this book, I consider her one of the most incredible character creators out there. Such imagination. Thanks for taking my mind on that journey!

    What made the experience of listening to Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night the most enjoyable?

    The narrator has a great voice. I usually find male impressions of female voices comical, but this narrator, Robert Petkoff, draws you into the story with consistent, distinct, and incredible voices for each character. Kresley Cole has become my favorite author, and has enticed me into a new Genre. Her characters are clever and witty.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The heroine. She kept me smiling with her brazen personality.
