    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    Where does Cole's Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks up there…. Usually I rank a book by how many times I have listen to it. Even though I thought this book was great, I can't seem to go back for seconds. I thought I was pretty paranormal savvy, this book left me thinking…What the h*ll. I mean one of our heroes being violated by a vampire.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cole's Redemption?

    Even I loved Zander and Selene as a couple. I enjoyed the way they found each other, I like the fact they brought out the best in each other. It was the stuff going on in the backgound that's got me not knowing what to feel about this book.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Potter does an excellent job as always. I thought she bought to life what the characters were going through. I don't think I would have experienced the emotion, if I had just read the book.


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

    .........EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Run with a Naked Werewolf to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because of the performance of Amanda Ronconi. You can almost see the book come to life with her narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Anna/Tina personallity. LOL, she picked a bar fight to help her man. I liked Caleb's loveable ways.


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

    I've listen to all of the Molly Harper Series. Plus another series where Amanda Ronconi started out as the narrator


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

    I did listen to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy the Naked Werewolf series, I hope this isn't the last of this series. I think I would enjoy a crossover series.

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

    A lot more mystery and less of everything else that going on in this book.


    Has Fatal Deception turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has turned me off from any other book in this series.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She didn't destract, (the entire series has gone down hill for me) I guess she can only work with what she was given.


    What character would you cut from Fatal Deception?

    Unless the Author is planning to breakup the perfect couple she has spent several books creating, I don't understand the purpose of Agent Hill hanging around loving a women he can never have.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the first book was really good. Enough with the sex scenes every other chapter, we get the heroine and hero are hot for each other.

    Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would totally recommend (and have) this book. I love the storyline, the heroine already kicking vampire butt, not knowing anything about the Immortal Guardian world. I liked the narrator, who brought the story to life, you simply get caught up in all the action, and bond with every character.


    What other book might you compare Darkness Rises to and why?

    I like Christine Feehan Dark series and JD Tyer's Alpha Pack however, Darkness Rises and the other books in the series are so good the character so well developed that you can't wait to read what happens next. I just couldn't stop listening.


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

    I've only listen to her performance in this series. Some narrators are made for a particular series. I love how she has brought each and every book in the series to life. I love every character


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

    Some of the antics and charaters made me laugh, particularly the changing ringtones and the hero trying to use modern day slang.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope it's not a whole year before we get the next book.

    If you could sum up Dark Lycan in three words, what would they be?

    Really good story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Lycan?

    Loved the battle scenes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He is just reading the story, not performing. You don't know which character is which, they all sound the same.


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

    The book is exciting, the narration made me want to cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Please bring back Phil Gigante and Jane brown for the female narration.

    What would have made Black Moon better?

    Maybe if he had resisted evil throughout the book instead of at the very end and if it had a better herione it would have been better


    Has Black Moon turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no I like this genre


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?

    Sure, I guess the narrator can only work with what she is given


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

    No, I expected more after the first two books

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

    Maybe clear the mis-understanding up sooner, and not have her whine the first part of the book. This book for me was painful to get through.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator was fine as always. It was this book


    Do you think Vanity, Vengeance and a Weekend In Vegas needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, this cast of characters are still some of my favorites

    Awakening after all this time in a world of absolute darkness and oppressive heat, Dax wonders in how many ways the world above must have changed. But it is how he has changed that fills him with dread and loathing. Buried alive for hundreds of years in a volcano in the Carpathian Mountains, Dax fears that he has become the full-fledged abomination that every Carpathian male fears, a victim of the insidious evil that has crept relentlessly into his mind and body over the centuries.

    Window Rock, Arizona, is the last known location of Honor Roberts, who vanished when she was just 13. It was her only sanctuary from the Breed research that would surely have ended in her death - one such insidious experiment should, indeed, have killed her. That she lived is both a miracle - and a great mystery. Stygian's mission is to find Honor Roberts, no matter the cost. Now, with the help of Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation, he is closer than ever to his goal. But will the discovery of Honor Roberts mean the destruction of the mating heat that has developed between Stygian and Liza?

    What would have made Stygian's Honor better?

    It would have been better if the book was shorter. I felt like I was listening to the same chapter over and over.


    What could Lora Leigh have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The book could have been much shorter. I guess the plot after the first chapter


    What didn’t you like about Brianna Bronte’s performance?

    I didn't enjoy the book so it made listening to her performance unpleasant


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stygian's Honor?

    I would have cut half the book


    Any additional comments?

    I don't recoment this one. The book was too long and the heroine unpleasant
