    Slade needs a cure, but what he finds is a savior, in the latest paranormal romance from national best-selling author Sarah McCarty. Contains mature themes.

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

    Never read it...be Tavia Gilbert's voice is unmatched. She makes you forget you are listening to ONE person...she is just one person isn't she?!?!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Ah Ha moments. Sarah McCarty wrote a great love story without following the "Formula" for ever story in the series. Each male character has his OWN way of falling in love, and each female lead is a powerful woman with her own methods.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    2 scenes: When Slade is talking about Jane being afraid of him when she wakes up...the whole time, she was awake, in control and listening.Also...Jane leaves the house to find Slade. She's putting daylight in wolf after wolf to get to her man...the whole time thinking...I'm not wonderful, I'm just scared. She's such a real woman!


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

    When Jane puts Slade in the box and decides to stay and guard him...very unexpected.


    Any additional comments?

    SPOILER ALERT...don't read this is you want WTF moments...on the other hand, listening to Tavia will take you into the story even if you THINK you know what's going to happen.

    Would you recommend Eternal Captive to your friends? Why or why not?

    I premise is awesome, the rambling is a little tough to get through, We strat forward with the story, then back up and rehash.


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

    Tavia's voice is the reason I'm listening to this series


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

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

    Would you be willing to try another book from Laura Wright? Why or why not?

    I like the world she writes about, but this book rambled a bit


    What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tavia is the reason I choose this book. What a VOICE!!


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

    The loss of control. The fear of desire. Allie always thought that mysteriously sexy rancher Caleb Johnson wanted her as much as she wanted him. But since he never acted on it, she was ready to admit defeat. Until the night she was attacked by a vicious wolf, only to be rescued by another. In the triumphant, bloodied male, there was something Allie recognized---the baritone growl, the mesmerizing eyes, the inexplicable animal attraction. Her savior was Caleb.

    Would you listen to Caleb again? Why?

    No...but I'm listening to everything in the book series!


    What other book might you compare Caleb to and why?

    It was not very powerful as a first in the series, but McCarty can really spin a tale. Just as good as the Lora Leigh "Breed" series


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the opening. It was hard to believe Alli was going to be the Female lead...she is so normal and sarcastic. Push-up bra!?! We've all done something stupid like that to impress a guy! But Alli comes out swinging and hard-core...love her!


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

    Yup, cuz I wanted to get to the next one


    Any additional comments?

    I love this narrator. Her male voices sound like men, her female voices sound like different women. She is brilliant. I'll be looking for more books we reads.

    When a 15-year-old girl is abducted by vampires, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Anita Blake to find her. And when she does, she’s faced with something she’s never seen before: a terrifyingly ordinary group of people - kids, grandparents, soccer moms - all recently turned and willing to die to avoid serving a master. And where there’s one martyr, there will be more.

    Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire - a nightmare in his mind - against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live - until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead. When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow - accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings emerge multiplied.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sebastian...What a man (okay...vampire)!


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    Roberts voice became more powerful, as Sabastian became more confident.


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

    There is a scene in a nightclub when Sebastian thinks Kaderin is going to sleep with the half demon who owns the club. Thier reactions are differant then expected!

    In an underground club, a high-ranking public official spends his secret nights indulging in fantasies as exciting as they are depraved. For a seductive employee of the Dungeon, it's her job to fulfill them. But she's playing a far more dangerous game - one of blackmail, politics, and murder that reaches into the shadow world of the Ghostwalkers, and the creation of a spectacular, one-of-a-kind new weapon of defense. But when a dictator makes his own catastrophic moves, the Ghostwalkers have no choice but to bring in two major players - a man and woman both driven by passion and revenge.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Samurai Game to be better than the print version?

    I've never read a print version of the Ghostwalkers, BUT the emotion in Tom Stechschulte's voice; passion, fear, desire, and determination is good enough to make you laugh, cry and remember!


    What other book might you compare Samurai Game to and why?

    Octavia Butler's Wild Seed was an emotional journey, with the same power to pull you through a desperate love relationship.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

    I loved the passion and introspection in Sam, but Azami was amazing! I could actually feel her pain from Whitney's experiments.


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

    Beware of small pretty packages!

    YES this book must be listened to!! Hearing the different voices and the tension, excitement and deadliness in the voices was exciting! Dion Graham was so amazing, I'll be looking for books narrated by him.


    What other book might you compare Wild Seed to and why?

    This book cannot be compared to any other I've read or listened to. The characters are Black, the situations and based of African American culture and mysticism. Where else are you going to read/hear this kind of work?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved two scenes: When the female lead transformed herself into a Dolphin and described the experience to us - the scene brought a true smile to my face, and when the Male lead finally figured out how much he truly cared. The scene brought tears to my eyes.


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

    What if you had TRUE power over LIFE and DEATH, and could live forever? Could you stay sane - could you love?


    Any additional comments?

    I love Octavia Butler...this book only made me hungry for more...I guess I'll have to go back and read/listen to her other books!

    Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men - a vow she's determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She'll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you. She absolutely does not need male company, no matter how tan and rock-hard his body may be. Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess.

    Where does Under a Vampire Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a mid-range story. Not the best, or the worst. It helped clarify more points in the Argeneau serie.


    What other book might you compare Under a Vampire Moon to and why?

    This book has no comparision that I've read. Writing about an immortal/Vampire who chases the girl all around an island in the sun!! That was interesting.


    Which character – as performed by Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    Christian Notte, the male lead, wassexy, dedicated and focused. He wanted the woman..he persued her


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

    No strong reactionsjust an interesting premise.

    the scene dipicting the Violin in a rock band was very visual - had me searching for rock violin music.
