    Sweet bedtime story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My fav scene...... When Mia displays her shooting skills as well as her medical skills.


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

    Yes and I did! This one is my fav out of the "Sweet"series (southern nights, persuasion). I am a fan of the Eaton Family series.

    It's 1876 and Dr. Viveca Lancaster is frustrated by the limits placed upon female physicians of color. When she is offered the chance to set up a practice in the small all-black community of Grayson Grove, Michigan, she leaves her California home and heads east. The very determined Viveca knows all about fighting for her rights. But she may need more than determination to face down the distractingly handsome Nate Grayson, the Grove's bull-headed mayor.

    Would you listen to Vivid again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to Vivid again because I am a fan of Beverly Jenkins' African American Historical novels. Strong women and even stronger men who lived during very perilous times for Blacks , and made a difference in their own way for the Race is the central theme of her novels. The historical facts interwoven with the romantic fiction is the reason I read this genre. I learn and I enjoy the story at the same time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vivid?

    Nate & Vivid's Romantic episodes.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was ok. However my personal preference would have called for 2 narrators, one male and one female. I didn't dislike the narrator's performance, but I think the characterization could have been enhanced if a male narrator could have performed the male dialogue.


    If you could rename Vivid, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't rename it.

    What did you love best about Bittersweet Love?

    I am a fan of the Eaton Family Series. So this story was very enjoyable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bittersweet Love?

    The most memorable moment was when Belinda & Griffin realized how wrong they both were in their opinions of each other..


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was a disappointment. First, she mispronounced a number of words throughout the story. It was VERY distracting. Second, her reading was choppy in places; pausing where she should not have. Third, her reading just went flat at some points. It was as if this was a practice run. Some of the other Eaton stories were narrated by Corey Allen, ...very enjoyable other than his voice did not register as low as it should have for some of the male dialogue. But he did not constantly mispronounce words as Erica Love did.


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

    It takes Two!

    An Essence best-selling author, Rochelle Alers also boasts a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award and Zora Neale Hurston Award. Sweet Southern Nights continues the Eaton family saga, which finds Dr. Levi Eaton far from his Northern roots, volunteering at a Kentucky clinic. There he meets Angela Chase, whose sultry Southern hospitality is just what the doctor ordered. But as their relationship deepens, Angela worries Levi may discover the secrets she’s been hiding.

    If you could sum up Sweet Southern Nights in three words, what would they be?

    Delightful Easy Listen!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Southern Nights?

    I especially enjoyed the scene when Levi Eaton showed up right on time when Angela confronts her ex fiancé for the 1st time at her cousin's wedding.


    Which character – as performed by Corey Allen – was your favorite?

    Angela was my fav character performed by Corey Allen. His voice and inflections were just right for her. I don't think his voice was deep enough to really capture Levi Eaton's character.


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

    The Eaton's...the Saga continues

    Among Virginia’s horse-country elite, Nicholas Cole-Thomas is the ultimate eligible bachelor. After escaping one disastrous relationship, he plans to remain single. Yet when the beautiful veterinarian working on his horse farm needs help, he invites her to stay under his roof. And the closer he gets to her, the closer he wants to be. Blurring the lines between business and pleasure is risky for Peyton Blackstone. It’s not just Nicholas’ charisma but his gentleness that enthralls her.

    What other book might you compare Eternal Vows to and why?

    If I had to compare, it would be the other Eaton Family series stories, and this one is my 3rd favorite after Mia Eaton's story and Belinda Eaton's story.


    What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

    Yes. Cary Hite was a good narrator.
