    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

    "To whom are you taking her?" Merrill asked, uncharacteristically curious. "Dragon," Griffin grinned. I stared at Griffin, my mouth surely open in surprise. Dragon? There was somebody named Dragon? That didn't sound promising. Who named their kid Dragon?

    Where does Blood Domination rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoy this series. I can't wait for the next one. I consider Ms. Suttle among the authors I always search for when looking for my next read/listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Sometimes stories of certain genre's become formulaic. Ms. Suttle has veered away from the usual and stretched out the adventure. I think she has done a fantastic job.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked to cookie eating scene. It was charming.


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

    If life didn't interupt I would have.

    For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it's definitely personal.

    Where does Dark Heir rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    All of Faith Hunter's books are among my favorites. The characters stay in my mind and I always want to know what happens next. This book is no different and I will listen to it more than once or twice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Oh so many things to choose from. I love that she has a relationship with someone who is all in. I liked the MOC holding back from touching her. The Younger Bros interplay is fantastic. If I keep going it will seem like gushing.


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

    Ms. Hvam is Jane/Beast. I cannot imagine any other reader. From the first book to now she has settled into the character's skin. The Cherokee words flow more smoothly. I have actually tried other authors because Ms. Hvam was the reader.


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

    I like the waking up with Bruiser. It is clear Jane can handle herself but being able to settle into an embrace has its own magic. She can gain strength from her romantic relationship and the one with the Younger Bros. Molly????

    Would you listen to Sleight of Hand again? Why?

    I very much enjoyed this book and will most likely listen again when the next book in the series is coming available for a refresher.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sleight of Hand?

    Over all I liked the characters and the fact that this is strong female lead with earned skills.


    What about Kimberly Henrie’s performance did you like?

    She did a fine job. I can hear other readers read it as well. There are a few pronunciation issues that she could work on but it wasn't bad at all. Amanda Ronconi, might add a little sass Ms. Henrie left on the table.


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

    Yes, I was excited to hear what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    I love finding a new series but hate waiting for the next book to become available. SO HURRY UP Mr. HENWICK!!!!!

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

    Yes, once again this team delivers a great experience. My only complaint is there are few other authors and readers delivering this level of Wahoo. It takes too long for the next books but I guess you have to wait for greatness...hmmph.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great sense of adventure and blend of magical history for this world.


    What about Renee Raudman’s performance did you like?

    I love that there are times when listening that I forget it is not an actual male reading the male parts. Her reading lets me get lost in the story.


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

    When lineage is everything to the powerful and the wealthy it's ironic that the elite dismiss this strength in this line of women.

    What made the experience of listening to Broken Soul the most enjoyable?

    Finally the next installment! I must have a true addiction to this series because I have been jonesing for a JY fix. I am now riding the bliss of the mental rehash of this newest adventure.


    What other book might you compare Broken Soul to and why?

    The closest, but not exactly the same, would be the Patricia Briggs', Mercy Thompson books. Although I don't care for the Alpha and Omega spin off books. I also like Connie Suttle's Blood Wager books as a comparison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many good ones to choose from.


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

    Yes! Of course I already said I have an addiction.


    Any additional comments?

    Urban fantasy readers cannot call themselves fans of this genre without reading/listening to this series. There are a couple production issues on the audio version but they don't detract from the book as a whole.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Clean Sweep to be better than the print version?

    Not sure


    What other book might you compare Clean Sweep to and why?

    It falls in the same line as the Magic bites series. Plausible with the amount of "Facts" they lay out. Always entertaining.


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

    I really like Ms. Raudman but you can tell who she is pulling for as the romantic lead with the voices she gives the men.


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

    Not really but it did make me cringe which was intended so I call that a win.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this author/s and wish they could just pluck the story fully formed from their brains so we can get them faster. I'm just greedy like that.

    An Austenprose "Readers' Choice" for Top 5 Books of 2012. In this thrilling and sensual adaptation of the classic love story Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet and the citizens of Hertfordshire know Fitzwilliam Darcy to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man, but they never suspect the dark secret of his true nature. He is not a man at all - but a vampire.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I liked the story and thought it was original BUT Oy! with the name repetition. I swear half the book is repeating Sam and Caine. The plot was good I just wish the author did not try and up the word count with redundant fluff.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jacqueline Druga before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first book by this author.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was fine. It did not detract and I liked the happy puppy sound of Caine's persona.


    Was Beyond Fear worth the listening time?

    This was worth half the listening time. Like I said if you take out the name echo this would be a fine book.


    Any additional comments?

    I think this author really has something original with the plot. The story was interesting enough. I cannot believe no one mentioned the repetitive calling of names as an issue prior to publishing. This might be one of those times when advice should have been heeded. If you are trucking around your life and want to listen to chatter with a good plot this book is fine. I had to stop listening for a few days to get past being annoyed by the name issue before I could finish it. Because I liked the concept I will give this author another shot. But I hope the same issues don't apply. Longer does not necessarily mean better however creativity can overcome sometimes.
