    Rumor said the powerful Nicolai DeMarco could command the heavens, that the beasts below did his bidding... and that he was doomed to destroy the woman he took as wife. It was whispered he was not wholly human - as untamed as his tawny mane and slashing amber eyes. Impoverished aristocrat Isabella Vernaducci would defy death itself to rescue her imprisoned brother. She’d even brave the haunted, accursed lair of the lion - the menacing palace of legendary, lethal Don Nicolai DeMarco.

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

    It was ok, but not as exciting as many of her other works. Seemed to drag on and on at times. I knew pretty much what was going to happen the entire time.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christine Feehan? Why or why not?

    absolutely. Some of my favorite books are written by Feehan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    none stand out, really. I guess the climax when they find out that there was more than one "beast". The way the women were portrayed... I think the thing I liked most was the older female was loved by her husband, even though she was a bit insecure about them.


    Was Lair of the Lion worth the listening time?

    It was just "okay"


    Any additional comments?

    not my favorite, but still pleasurable enough.

    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    What made the experience of listening to Gabriel's Inferno the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was wonderful, like warm, silky milk chocolate on the tongue. The writing made me feel like I was listening to actual literature versus listening to a "bodice ripper". When you combine the two, it's a magical concoction.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gabriel's Inferno?

    When they finally made it to Florence. The seduction was magnificent. It took a very long time to get there though, but well worth the wait.


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

    No, I haven't had the pleasure before, but I will certainly correct that momentarily.


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

    Not at all. It's much too long for that, but that doesn't make it any less pleasurable.


    Any additional comments?

    I have just thoroughly been made love to. I'm not fit to drive, so I suppose I'll sit here for a while and reminisce.

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

    If you could sum up Captivated & Entranced in three words, what would they be?

    Irish by Grace


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captivated & Entranced?

    When he was able to find the lost boy by going from location to location. Driving to the convenience store where they stopped with him during their kidnapping was a pretty good moment. Him recognizing his "Auntie" was another good moment. That was tense.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She did the voice changes pretty smoothly. Lots of enthusiasm and a good Irish brogue. I loved her Irish accent.


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

    Never underestimate the power of an Irishman in love.


    Any additional comments?

    I commented mostly on the second story, but that's not to say the first isn't good. It was, but I thought she could have developed the male love interest a bit better. I wanted to want him more but he was just short of it somehow.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    What did you love best about The Search?

    I loved the strength of the main character. She wasn't taking anything lying down, and she was hilarious in her "nerdlike" mannerisms. She knew Klingon.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I anticipated what would happen, but that didn't stop me from loving every minute of the book.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    She did a very good job on this one. She seemed comfortable with the characters. She didn't have to work to get the feel of them. She had it from the start.


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

    I loved it. I laughed a lot. It was poingnant, but still fun.


    Any additional comments?

    Probably my favorite Nora Roberts book.
