    Brilliant and ambitious dressmaker Marcelline Noirotis London's rising star. And who better to benefit from her talent than the worst-dressed lady in the ton, the Duke of Clevedon's intended bride? Winning the future duchess' patronage means prestige and fortune for Marcelline and her sisters. To get to the lady, though, Marcelline must win over Clevedon, whose standards are as high as his morals are...not. The prize seems well worth the risk-but this time Marcelline's met her match.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story line is pretty cliche for historical romances. Strong willed woman - dashing man, obstacle and then they get together. The story was passable enough to listen the entire book but not enough to entice me to listen to another book in the series.

    He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    What disappointed you about Kiss of Midnight?

    I gave this book ample time to show some promise.but there was no character development - no whisper of a story line forming - just every cliche vampire story line you can find. There is no chemistry between the romantic leads. I gave this book 8 chapters to capture my interest and it just remained lame.


    What was most disappointing about Lara Adrian’s story?

    The lack of one and the cheesy dialogue


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

    No redeeming qualities

    It's a lousy first day on the job for Nina Blackman. A patient, loopy from the anesthesia, bites her. At least he was cute. The next morning, Nina wakes up with a set of razor-sharp fangs, bionic vision, supersonic hearing, and a taste for blood. But there's a good explanation: It's her patient, Long Island vampire Greg Statleon. Is Nina willing to commit to one man for eternity, even if they are perfect for each other?

    This book ended in the middle of the story. The villian was easily/quickly foiled and Nina never learned and/or explored her new powers. There was so much more that should've been expanded upon but wasn't. That being said, it was otherwise an enjoyable listen that kept me entertained.

    Would you try another book from Jerrica Knight-Catania and/or Sherill Turner?

    Probably not


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jerrica Knight-Catania? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't likely try another book by this author because there are too many books to spend my time hoping the next by this author is interesting. This book lacked any semblance of an engaging story.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    If there was a real plot aside from a few secrets being kept and forgiven

    Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would...or should.

    When Marty Andrews gets bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle, her blond hair darkens, the hair on her legs starts growing at an alarming rate, and her mood swings put her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics in serious jeopardy. Then a drool-worthy man shows up at her door claiming that he accidentally bit Marty. And since he's a werewolf, she is now, too. Thinking Keegan Flaherty is clearly insane, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there's more at stake than just her highlights.

    The narrator is so bad at foreign accents! I don't think she actually knows what a spanish or russian accent sounds like because she got them all wrong.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story focused solely on this werewolf wanting to force himself on a vampire for 6 chapters - to the point where I lost interest in the book. I couldn't make myself waste more time on this boring, lame book. There was no story or character development at all. The only reason to read this book is as supernatural porn - that's about it. I don't mind books with explicit love scenes but a story should be the primary focus - not the other way around.

It falls to Angel to lead the remnants of her gang halfway across the country to claw their way through corporate intrigue, zombie drugs, and undead trafficking to rescue her friends - and expose the traitor responsible for their abduction.

    For Olivia, romantic bliss has never felt as right as it does with Cash. Unpredictable, except when it comes to satisfying her desires, Cash has a well-earned "bad boy" reputation, but he’s turning his life around with the one woman who accepts him for who he is. Until strangers from the past turn Olivia and Cash’s world upside down. What they want is something only Cash can give them. And if he doesn’t deliver, then they’re taking the one thing that Cash values the most. Olivia always knew that in falling for Cash she was likely to get burned. But this new threat is beyond anything she imagined....

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

    Probably not - I find Olivia's irrational and semi-stupid character annoying. The story is OK and entertaining enough but Olivia's character drags it down to where I don't think I will continue listening to this series - especially when there are so many books I'd rather listen to that are better. So I couldn't recommend this to someone else when I'm not even sold on the series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Have Olivia stop being irrational and also, perhaps, listen to the people who have experience with danger instead of insisting she (who has had no experience) knows better. And perhaps discuss her relationship concerns with Cash instead of internalizing it. But of course doing something as common sense as communicating properly would've taken out a major part of this story - god forbit

    The story opens in 1906 in New Rochelle, New York, at the home of an affluent American family. One lazy Sunday afternoon, the famous escape artist Harry Houdini swerves his car into a telephone pole outside their house. And almost magically, the line between fantasy and historical fact, between real and imaginary characters, disappears.

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

    I would not recommend because, though the author is talented at painting a picture and is a true wordsmith, I just felt no connection or interest in the characters and what happened to them. I can see where others may like this book but its not for me.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
