    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.

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

    Absolutely, It was a fun read with an interesting Hero and Heroine.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie?

    I don't want to give anything away but it has to do with the inspector and his reasoning for getting so called justice on this family.


    Any additional comments?

    You will fall in love with Ian. He as autism and he continues to fight it for the women he loves is just beautiful.

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Undead Pool to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I have not read the print edition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way Rachel 's friends always rally around her. They love her and they are really family even though they are different species.


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

    I have and they are all good. Marguerite Gavin knows how to perform and bring a book to life.


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

    Rachel and the Mystics


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if this is Rachel and Kim Harrison's last book, but if it is it ended with a bang. I hope it is not the last of Rachel, Jenks, Trent and Ivy. They have been a part of my life for so long. I'm not sure what it will be like without them.

    Andre "Thug-A-Licious" Williams escaped Harlem’s meanest streets thanks to his stellar hoop moves and explosive mic skills. Now he dominates the rap scene and the ladies, but no matter how many women he takes to his bed, only one has his heart: Carmiesha, his ride-or-die queen, who has stuck by him through thick and thin. But Thug also has a nightmarish history with someone else. Pimp Williams, his cousin and ex-partner in crime, is a cold-blooded killer who spreads havoc all over Harlem and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

    What would have made Thug-A-Licious better?

    At least one redeeming character. Every last one of them was a hot mess.com including Karmisha, though she tired to be better.


    What was most disappointing about Noire’s story?

    Oh I don't know, the rape scenes, bad rap lyrics or a man sleeping with so many women unprotected and not catching HIV which I think would be more realistic.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not one.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't even finsh this book because it was such a hard listen. The narrators voice is fine, but the story itself was just too miserable. Karmisha showed the most promise and I just wanted her to find a way out of harlem. And the idea that a child can inherit the devil qualities of his father without living in that enviorment is extremly questionable. In all I really hated this book.

    Where does Catching Fire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have read a lot of audiobooks and Catching Fire ranks in the top 10.


    What other book might you compare Catching Fire to and why?

    I think divergent comes close, but catching fire is better written.


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

    No I have not listened to her other preformances


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

    Catching Fire made me laugh, cry and everything in between.


    Any additional comments?

    Katiness is a very complicated person, but she lives in a complicated time. Which makes she the perfect symbol of rebillion. Catching Fire is her growth book and your feelings for her grow as well. In The Hunger games she was a child, in Catching Fire she is a force to reckon with and you can understand President Snow's fear of her and the change she symbolizes.

    Rosalyn Landor has a way of make an men of the historical period as either arrogant or a dandy. It's really a great gift.


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

    No sometimes I had to step away in the beginning becasue it was slow. By the 2nd half of the book it picks up nicely.

    Who was the most memorable character of The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas and why?

    Miamor, it was really nice to hear her back story.


    Any additional comments?

    Like my title says I don't know whether to be happy about the Cartel 3 or mad at the ending of the Cartel 2 . I feel like the story ended specifically so we can spend our money on the Cartel 3 to see how it really ends. While a smart move on the authors part, I still feel lied too.

    Following a steamy European encounter, Tiffany Matthews is now working as a sous chef at wealthy businessman Dominick Rollins’ prestigious L.A. restaurant. Tiffany tries to keep her new boss at arm’s length, but soon she surrenders to his not-so-innocent flirtations. Now things are heating up in the kitchen—and in the bedroom.

    What disappointed you about What Love Tastes Like?

    The narration was horrible, which is odd since I usually like Patricia R Floyd. Her male voices are horrible and she made Nick sound overbearing and stiff.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Zuri Day again?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patricia R. Floyd?

    I would have cast Shari Peele. She did Love in Play and that was great.


    Any additional comments?

    It's like Zuri Day used these big extra words that I just thought was not needed to make a point or describe a scene. And Patricia Floyd made all the characters except Nan and Joy, come off conceited like Angelica.

    Best-selling author Zuri Day crafts sizzling romantic tales that leave listeners yearning for more. Love in Play finds the curvaceous and wildly successful Dominique Clark finally feeling in charge of her life - until she meets Jake McDonald, her son’s gorgeous football coach. Their first encounter leads to several passionate nights, but out of the bedroom there’s no issue they won’t butt heads about. Dominique’s good sense tells her to end it, but something in her heart says this game might be worth the risk.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    What made the experience of listening to Hounded the most enjoyable?

    The character of Oberon the dog was hilarious and lovable. If a dog could talk to in my head and had is sense of humor and love I would befriend him in a minute. Loveable.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The witches were entertaining and the old lay across the street. Least interesting was the goddess. It was confusing keeping track of who was who.


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

    No.
