    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Story

    At barely over 5 hours, Driving Mr. Dead is more of a morsel in comparison to the three-course meals offered in the Nice Girls Don’t and Naked Werewolf books, but it is still very well-written, hilarious, and satisfying. The best way I can describe the two main characters is that Mr. Dead could be Mr. Darcy with a better ass (or so I imagine), and Miranda's personality kind of reminds me of a post-Andrea Dick (from the NGD series). I listened to DMD mostly while driving and more than once I had to fake a cough so that my fellow motorists didn’t think I was a nut who spontaneously bursts into laughter.
    I only have two wee complaints: 1) due to the book’s brevity the story was 'lite' on mystery, drama, and supporting characters. But hey, Molly Harper-lite still beats 90% of everything else in this genre. And 2) where’s the next Jane Jameson book?! I’m going to start an 'Occupy Molly Harper’s Front Lawn' movement if I don’t get some Gabriel Nightingale stat!

    Oh and, as always, Ms. Ronconi is the perfect complement to Ms. Harper's characters.

    Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breathing and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature. Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress....

    Story

    I've read and enjoyed the rest of Cole's Immortals after Dark series, so I was very surprised by how much I didn't like the The Warlord Wants Forever audiobook. I'm not sure what was different about this one. The rest of the series takes place in the same world, some of the same characters, the same themes, etc. But for some reason TWWF had my inner feminist's hackles up. It could be the few scenes that stradled the fence between erotic/ kinky and skeevy/rape-y. The narration didn't help matters. They each read Nikolai and Myst and had a different interpretation of each. At the very least they should've agreed on Nikolai's accent.
    If the rest of the IAD series is going to be produced in audiobook, I suggest they find the right narrator (one who can do m/f voices). I'd love to hear Gabra Zackman or Nicole Poole narrate the rest of the series.
