    It bit: New York hotels cost an arm and a leg, and Terri had flown from England to help plan her cousin's wedding. The new in-laws offered lodging. But they were a weird bunch. There was the sometimes chipper, sometimes brooding Lucern, and the wacky stage-actor, Vincent. (She couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier singing-and-dancing Dracula.) And then there was Bastien. Just looking into his eyes, Terri had to admit she was falling for him.

    "Bad Narrator"
    Overall

    Again, why do let men narrators try to do women character with english accents. Would have been a good book but very painful to listen to.

    Vanda Barkowski is in trouble. As the owner of a hot nightclub, she's more unconventional than most of her fellow vampires, and if some think her a little out of control, then so be it. But after three former employees filed a complaint about her temper, Vanda is sentenced to an anger management class. Worse, Phil Jones agreed to be her sponsor. Phil, the mortal who is forbidden to her.

    What disappointed you about Forbidden Nights with a Vampire?

    The narrator could not pronounce all the foreign names correctly
    example Gregori (Greg-gore-i) is NOT pronounced Gregory
    She also had a difficult time when she switched from female voices to male voices, in other words all the characters came out sounding like females. This was a bit odd considering some of the characters are Scottish Highland warriors.


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

    The narrator should have listened to past performances from this same series to get an idea of how to pronounce all the characters names correctly


    How could the performance have been better?

    The only way to improve this narrator is to replace her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Forbidden Nights with a Vampire?

    I started this series and have enjoyed each book. it grows on one main story and involves characters from book to book. However, it has been difficult to keep my head in this story from book to book since the narrator's keep changing


    Any additional comments?

    It would be nice if Audible actually read this and realized when they're dealing with a story from a series, the narrator should be cast and kept from book to book to ensure the readers enjoyment

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    "Great Book"
    Overall

    This is the best book in the series to date and I've listen to it 4 times already. The narrator dibn't bother me that bad, and she is a whole lot less annoying then some of the others in this series.

    "Great Book"
    Overall

    This is a awesome book and one of the better ones in the series. The narrators is good, a little breathy but still she distinguishes between the character well.

    Vampires don't exist...do they? Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck...but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure.He's been waiting forever for a woman like her...

    "Horrible Narrator"
    Overall

    Please, please keep the same narrator for every book in a series!! It is very difficult for a listener to switch between different narrators. This narrator does not do female character well, especially those with accents. This book had my favorate character of this series in it and I could barely listen to the entire book it was so painful. From now on I will not be ordering any books by this narrator, rather I'll buy the book and read it myself.
