    In Polecat, Alaska, Rachel Miller and Jake Hunter have a mutual admiration for each other - from across a lake. There's nothing Rachel likes more than spying on the very fit wilderness guide when he skinny-dips each night. And Jake has always been curious about his reclusive artist neighbor. He even bought Rachel's first wood carving: a wolf who looks suspiciously like him. Jake is a werewolf, but not just any werewolf. He's the founder of WARM (Werewolves Against Random Mating). And that means a human like Rachel is off-limits, no matter how attractive he finds her.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I like the series but I personally think its getting to be boring. This one was a better book than last story by author.


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

    Maybe go in different story line. The stories are starting to sound the same.


    Did Abby Craden do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I had no problems with narrator.


    Do you think Werewolf in Alaska needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Writer needs new story line this one is getting old

    Deposited on the doorstep of what appears to be a beautifully restored mansion, Laura finds it odd that the cab driver is so eager to drive away; and that's just the beginning... From a butler who seems to avoid any physical contact whatsoever, to a housekeeper who floats rather than walks, Laura can't help but start questioning her sanity. Then, when a man she's never seen before appears and claims he's her dead husband, she has to decide if it's time to head for the hills or stay and discover what secret past she has with Greenwood Manor and its handsome - albeit deceased - owner.

    What disappointed you about Greenwood Manor?

    The story is blah and not well written. Story line sounded ok but no it wasn't. Used too much sex in it no real story.


    Has Greenwood Manor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no but I will try to be more careful picking the next one.


    How could the performance have been better?

    was ok but not great....I tried listening to this twice fell asleep both times....boring

    Welcome to a world of chivalry and honor, of danger and desire, of legend, and of love…. These four original novellas bring to life all the romance and adventure of the Middle Ages, with the common thread of a rich medieval tapestry woven through each tale by an acclaimed master of historical romance….

    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    Young Lerris is dissatisfied with his life and trade, and yearns to find a place in the world better suited to his skills and temperament. But in Recluce a change in circumstances means taking one of two options: permanent exile from Recluce or braving the dangergeld, a complex, rule-laden wanderjahr in the lands beyond Recluce, with the aim of learning how the world works and what his place in it might be. Many do not survive. Lerris chooses the dangergeld.

    For more than 30 years, Pern has conjured visions of brave men and women mounted upon the backs of dragons. As anyone knows who has been touched by the storytelling magic of Anne McCaffrey, to hear of the exotic world of Pern is to inhabit it - and to experience its extraordinary dragons is to soar aloft with them and share their dazzling adventures. A Gift of Dragons brings together three beloved stories and a thrilling new tale of Pern, published here for the first time, in a single volume.
