    Homicide detective Angela Keen thrives on the city’s rough streets. But when she becomes the prize of all prizes in the dragon-shifter world, due to her “high-energy” status, she gets more than she bargained for. Kidnapped by Lothair of the Razorback clan, Angela barely survives captivity before managing to escape. Hurt and alone with nowhere to hide, she faces certain death when Lothair uses the trace energy she leaves in her wake to hunt her down. But before he can reach her, a mystery dragon-shifter intervenes and saves Angela’s life.

    Would you listen to Fury of Ice again? Why?

    When a new book in a series comes out I like to quickly listen to last book to fill in any gaps in my memory. I'd listen again since I'm beginning to really bond with the characters now.


    What other book might you compare Fury of Ice to and why?

    Probably a cross between Thea Harrison's series and JR Ward's brotherhood. There's magic and shapeshifting alongside a tight group of males fighting evil.


    Which character – as performed by Benjamin L. Darcie – was your favorite?

    Forge, the lonely and misunderstood dragon of the book. Mac is a close second, his character is a hoot ( can't wait for his turn ;)


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

    When Forge was finally recognized as a good male.


    Any additional comments?

    This isn't a deep read, but when I listened to this book at work it kept a good deal of boredom at bay.

    For nearly six centuries I have roamed the night, a mortal man no longer. Would that I could undo the past -- when I entered the sanctuary of the Knights Templar to wrest from them the Holy Grail, only to discover the chalice I raised to my lips was not the sacred relic but a hellish cup of damnation. Now I shun the day and all things human, driven by an ungodly thirst. And yet...

    If you could sum up Be Mine Tonight (The Brotherhood of Blood, Book 1) in three words, what would they be?

    Nice twist, thanks!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Temple, for being so kind...for a bloodsucker.


    Which character – as performed by Vanessa Hart – was your favorite?

    Mulina, Temple's companion.


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

    The moment Temple realized it's okay to be happy - it was well written.


    Any additional comments?

    A very easy and enjoyable read. I will read the others.

  • Night Reigns: Immortal Guardians Series #2

    In the second installment of Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians series, when Marcus Grayden's grief over the loss of the woman he loved causes him to become reckless, he is assigned a new Second, who proves to be immensely distracting. Contains mature themes.

    What did you love best about Night Reigns?

    I've read a lot of paranormal crap. Some books are just copycats of other successful storylines. This series is completely unique and well thought out. I had to often stop myself from listening for fear of listening to the whole thing too fast.


    What other book might you compare Night Reigns to and why?

    Again, this one stands out on it's own. The humour and tension are well timed. The characters are people I'd like to meet. I'm a fan of JR Ward's work, so anyone into her will be happy with this.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anything with Seth in it. I'm totally into that guy.


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

    I'm a graphic designer so I could make the movie poster instead. I'd leave the words to someone else.


    Any additional comments?

    I have put in my calendar when the next one comes out. Thats the sign of a good series I say.
