My tastes vary. I like PNR and some HR. I have been known to like YA and NA just as well as some naughty bodice rippers and other romance books.

    What made the experience of listening to To Tame a Highland Warrior the most enjoyable?

    The voice. OMG It was the best. I have listened to many audio books and no matter how great the story is, if the narration is crap --- it can ruin a story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    GRIMM -- Because how can you resist such a sexy man? Followed 2nd by his uncle.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    GRIMM

    After a decade spent in isolation in the Ugandan jungles thinking about stuff, David Cross has written his first book. Known for roles on the small screen such as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show with Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages, Cross has carved out his place in American comedy.

    Nikki says: "Hilarious but a little preachy"

    It was whispered all through London society that he was a murderer, that he'd spent his youth in an asylum and was not to be trusted - especially with a lady. Any woman caught in his presence was immediately ruined. Yet Beth found herself inexorably drawn to the Scottish lord whose hint of a brogue wrapped around her like silk and whose touch could draw her into a world of ecstasy.

    Lupdilup says: "FANTASTIC BOOK, NICELLY PERFORMED."

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Witch Walking to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoy audio books and the story and narrator really have to match. The narrator did a great job of the characters.


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

    Not really --- but it was very entertaining.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    I liked her range in characters. You definitely knew who was talking depending on her voice.


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

    No --- but it was enjoyable.
