    When Shelly Brockman walked into his office, Sheriff Dare Westmoreland could almost taste the sweet, steamy passion they'd once shared. Then Shelly informed him he was the father of her son, the unruly preteen he'd arrested that day, and his fantasies turned to fury!

    I liked it. The Westmoreland men are great. I like them even better than the Madaris family.

    As a healer, he knows her body. But it's her heart he wants. For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace.

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

    My favorite kind of male character. Loner lacking social skills; finds love!


    What other book might you compare Gideon to and why?

    He reminds me a lot Gregory from Christine Feehan's Dark Magic.


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

    She is awesome. I have listened to hundreds of audio books, and she is the best narrator hands down!!! Usually a narrator is good with one gender or type of voice, but she is totally multitalented. She performs the male voices as well as she does the female voices. You can even determine which character is talking before a name is mentioned because she differentiates the voices in a way that allows you to identify the character. The best thing is the characters' voices remain the same throughout the series. Amazing!

    Living under Reese Madaris' roof makes LaKenna James the envy of every woman in town. But Reese's offer of a place to stay is strictly platonic - just until Kenna's new condo is completed. He has no idea that his best friend has been attracted to him since college, and Kenna plans to keep it that way. Ever since his cousin Blade got married, Reese has become Houston's most eligible bachelor - and a magnet for gold diggers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes it was interesting and has just the right amount of steam, without being raunchy.


    What other book might you compare Inseparable to and why?

    I would compare it to the Westmoreland Series. I have often said the Madari's Series lacked the steam of the Westmorelands, but this proved me wrong. Some of the previous books in the series left a lot to the imagination, but this one filled in the blanks!


    Did Ohms Pete do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No. You get used to him part way through the book. But I just don't care for him as a narrator. His voice is to deep to play the feminine roles, which tend to make him over act it out. Nobody in the book says "thing", everybody says "thang", drives me crazy. I am pretty sure this isn't Brenda, but something he added.


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

    Steamy

    Two years ago, geologist Corinthians Avery had brazenly sneaked into a hotel room to seduce Dex Madaris, head of Madaris Explorations and the longtime object of her affection. But the man who emerged from the shower to find Corinthians clad in next to nothing was handsome foreman Trevor Grant. When a smug Trevor informed her that Dex was not only absent from the trip, but at home happily married, Corinthians was mortified.

    Story

    The story is good, it is the typical BJ. I enjoyed the story, although I must admit I am more drawn to the Westmorelands. Warning..the narrator is going to take some serious getting use to. If he says "thang" one more time I am going to scream...lol. The narrator tends to make parts of the story seem very theatrical. Maybe he is going to get better, but I don't really think I am going to be able to take more of Peter. It took me almost a week to listen to this story, and that is really telling. Normally it is difficult of turn off her audio books without finishing them.

    Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    Among the Shadowdwellers, Trace holds power that some are willing to kill for. Without a stranger's aid, one rival would surely have succeeded, but Trace's brush with death is less surprising to him than his reaction to the beautiful, fragile human who heals him. By rights, Trace should hardly even register Ashla's existence within the realm of Shadowscape, but instead he is drawn to everything about her-her innocence, her courage, and her lush, sensual heat.

    Story

    It was good, but it just took a little while to get into the story. It didn't capture your attention immediately the way the Nightwalkers did. I would have probably liked it better if I had not already listented to the Nightwalker Series. The narrator left a little to be desired after the awesome narration of Xe Sands in the Nightwalkers.

    All in all it was pretty good.

    She will take him beyond his wildest dreams. As Demon King, Noah is dedicated to protecting his kind from their human and Nightwalker enemies. Yet for six months he has struggled with vivid dreams that threaten his very sanity. Every night he's tormented by images of a woman both achingly real and tantalizingly beyond his grasp. And his bone-deep need leaves him no choice but to force her to leave the life she's known and enter a world beyond her imagining...

    As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.

    Story

    It was OK, but was longer than it needed to be. I was looking forward to Zacarias' story, but his story was drawn out, a lot of repeated dialogue. The story made you feel a little like you rewound the MP3 player because you heard the same story line numberous times. Maybe there is a minimum on pages/hours required by the publisher to account for the repeated information. The book could have been maybe 5 hours shorter. I have been a long time fan of the Dark Series, Drake Sisters, and Ghostwalkers, but I am starting to see a trend of the books becoming drawn out. I would like to see more interaction with the other Carpathian's like in previous stories, this would better fill the space than the repetitive lines.

    The last thing Sid remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, he was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, he was saved - pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. Soon they will be bound by tantalizing secrets, which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of passion and danger.

    Story

    Luv Christine Feehan, but I wanted my money back for this one. I wrote here directly because I was too disappointed with this one. The book was very drawn out unneccesarily. It was really unrealistic. There was too much focus on ther heroine. One of the very few I have not reread or relistened to with no intention of doing so.

    One week of mind-blowing sex on a beautiful Caribbean island. Of all the business proposals financial tycoon Dominic Saxon has heard, Taylor Steele's is definitely the most tempting. All Taylor wants in return is for Dominic to father her baby. No strings, no commitments...just a mutually satisfying arrangement. Make that very satisfying. For a man with no intention of marrying again, it sounds ideal.

    There seems to be a lot of negative reviews, but I liked the book. Granted the book is senual, but lets face it, if you read BJ that is what you are looking for. I am very critical of audiobooks and its narrators, but I found the book and narrator really good.
