    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?

    Story

    I found the story lacking in the ability to engage my attention fully and as a result as I was listening and doing chores - if I missed stuff I did not feel the need to back up the book. The characters and story could have used developing and found it quite predictable at times though I did like the overall consept of the story. I am not sure if I would seek out another of her books to read.
    As for the narrator, I thought she did a good job of bringing unique voices to the different characters.

    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....

    When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it’s up to “young” vamp Gregori Holstein, VP of Marketing, to persuade the U.S. government to declare the video a hoax. But first the president wants a favor, one that requires Gregori to spend forty-eight hours in very close contact with the First Daughter. Abby Tucker would rather spend her nights in a lab than attend her father’s state dinners. She’s dedicated her life to finding a cure that will save her dying mother and needs only two more ingredients. To find them, she’ll have to venture into the most dangerous region of the world....

    I really enjoy this author's writing! She is has a way of infusing humor into her writing that left me rewinding the book to catch all of the story. I definitely will be reading more of her work. I also loved the narrator as well and find she is able to bring unique voices to the cast of characters in the book.

    Story

    I loved this book! The interplay between the characters is quite funny and I had to rewind several times because I was laughing so hard. The author is very good and writing very real characters and I found the story very plausable. The narrator did a good job on separating out the characters and performing the book. Highly recommend this book.

    Hailed as a major talent in paranormal romance, Nalini Singh takes us deeper into the world of the Psy and the changelings in her latest extraordinary novel, where a gifted woman sees passion in her future---a passion that is absolutely forbidden by her kind. In danger from the Psy, Faith NightStar's fragile sanity will be tested by an all-consuming passion for a changeling who can take the form of man or jaguar.

    This is the second book in this series I have read and I have quite enjoyed both of them. The narrator is very good and is able to use distinctive voices for the people in the story and has a very expressive voice. A very enjoyable listen!

    Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer. For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers....

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

    I love reading audiobooks even if I have read it in print. I find this narrator has a way of bringing more personality to the characters than I tend to project into the books when I read them in print. In many ways, listening to the performance in audio is like watching the movie after reading the book - it can bring another layer to the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jacob?

    One of the most enjoyable part of the book was how Jacqueline Frank describes the internal struggle of Jacob as he comes to terms with the knowledge that he is attacted to Bella despite how forbidden this is in his society. She has a very descriptive way of bringing to life both emotions and events.


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

    I have listened to Jacob, Gideon, and Ellijah and I have enjoyed Xe Sands's performances in all of them.


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

    Jacqueline Frank has a lot of humor and banter between the characters that made me laugh out loud on several occassions throughout this novel.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances. I quite enjoyed both the performance of the book as well as the book itself and will continue to read Jacqueline Frank novels.
