    Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gabriel's Rapture to be better than the print version?

    I much prefer audio books. The narator is great!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gabriel's Rapture?

    When he asked Julia to marry him.


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

    I'm not sure if I have listened to him before but I think he's great. He has a wonderful voice and is good at different voices.


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

    If I could have I would. But it was split between 2 days.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is a thrid one. I can't wait!

    A secret government unit is formed under the oversight of Adam Harrison, famed paranormal investigator. The case: In a historic mansion in New Orleans’ French Quarter, a senator’s wife falls to her death from a balcony. Most think she jumped, distraught over the loss of her young son. Some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits that inhabit the house - once the site of a serial killer’s grisly work.

    Michele says: "Great Book"

    What about Jeffrey Cummings’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed his performance. He does a good job at changing his voice for each character.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy murder mystery/romance/paranormal this is the book for you. It started me on all the next in this series and I have enjoyed all that I've read.

    When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires. Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

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

    An erotic romance that is well written. I like the fact it is written with emotions showing.


    Which character – as performed by Adam Paul – was your favorite?

    It took me awhile to get used to this performer. I as not sure about him but got used to him part way through. He's ok but now as good as some performs I have listened to.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait until the next 2 books. I've liked all of Maya Banks books I have read.

    Detective Sergeant Apelu Soifua knows firsthand how cops work in the big city; he spent seven years on the beat with the San Francisco PD. There, the job was just a job. But back home on American Samoa, it’s personal. On an island, there are no strangers. Secrets may be commonly known but they’re never discussed, and solving crimes requires a certain…finesse. Here, Apelu walks the line between two cultures: Samoan versus American, native versus new.

    John S. says: "Great narration and interesting setting"
    "Good book."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Pago Pago Tango the most enjoyable?

    The fact that I lived in Samoa from 1982 to 1984 and knew the island and lifestyle. It really hit home. We also have an adopted Smaoan son who will be 29 this month. We loved living there and was very happy to read a book about the island. I think there was only one murder when we lived there.


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

    Very surprised by who was the ring leader in the end.


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

    The main character. He did well pronouncing the words correctly. Missprounced a few.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt he ended the book a few chapters short. There should have been a wrapup of arrest and find out what happens to the bad guys. Instead we were left hanging. Was dissapointed with the end of the book.

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    Would you try another book from Linda Howard and/or Nanette Savard?

    I like Linda Howard but will avoid Nanette Savard.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nanette Savard’s performances?

    Never. She over dramatizes everything. She is not good at expressing things in dramatic form without coming off as screaming

    Is there anything sweeter than a first love? Don't ask Claire Keyes. The 28-year-old piano prodigy has never had a regular boyfriend, much less a real romance. Her music career has left little room for friends or family - which is just part of the reason she hasn't seen the family bakery or her two sisters in years.

    Yes I would recommend to a friend. It's a nice romance, fun to listen to.

    Yes, in fact I pretty much did listen to it all in a very short time.

    Barry Laverty, M.B., is looking forward to his first Christmas in the cozy village of Ballybucklebo, at least until he learns that his sweetheart, Patricia, might not be coming home for the holidays. That unhappy prospect dampens his spirits somewhat, but Barry has little time to dwell on his romantic disappointments. Christmas may be drawing nigh, but there is little peace to be found on earth, especially for a young doctor plying his trade in the emerald hills and glens of rural Ireland.

    Would you consider the audio edition of An Irish Country Christmas to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed the audio versions of all the books in this series. The performer brings it to life for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't pick one. They were all great.


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

    Yes. I wish I could have listened to it in one setting.


    Any additional comments?

    A great series of books! Love the ones I have listened to already.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Where does Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's hard to rank it that way. I enjoy so many kinds of books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor as well as the story line of the book. I have loved this series of her books as well as the werewolf two books. I hope she writes more of these.
