    Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different - more serious, more personal - and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day. Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: He wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards - in six weeks - or it's no deal. Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing.

    CAC says: "Very intense and controversial....but a fab listen"

    What disappointed you about The Siren?

    This book made me so sad that it affected my day


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something like Lady be Good by Susan Elizabeth Fields.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Aeron James?

    I don't know


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Siren?

    All Nora's destructive scenes. I will prefer to read that she became somebody who learned to love herself completely. It is not my kind of romance novel.


    Any additional comments?

    I shouldn't criticize it because it is art. Each person is different thanks God.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant.

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    Would you listen to Lover at Last again? Why?

    I liked the way Ms Ward connected the previous books and also opened the story for a few more books. I was afraid that she was getting tired of the Black Dagger Brotherhood's series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was sexy, romantic and open. Ms Ward was not afraid of write about two men love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Blay met Qhuinn at the bar.


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

    It is never too late to start a new life.

    Thank you Ms Ward, this book made me fall in love with the Brotherhood again.

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Haden says: "My friends thought I was crazy."
    "Not many writers will add to Lincoln's history."

    This was the first book.


    What three words best describe Scott Holst’s performance?

    I liked it.


    Did Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, to look for more information about Lincoln.

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

    Yes, the description of each character was so good that I felt like if I knew them.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Still Life with Crows the most enjoyable?

    Believable. The characters are so human that sometimes I felt the need to slap them.


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

    It's easy to forget that we live inside a society that mold us. In this book we have a single mother with no support or advice from society, just the influence from her inflexible father. And a baby that grows with only an ignorant and selfish mother as guide.


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

    I liked the voices he used for each character.


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

    NO. On the last chapters I was so tense that I had to stop because I started to hear noises around me.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you.

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    Would you try another book from Megan Hart and/or Lauren Fortgang?

    I was a little disappointed with the story, so it's probably that I will not buy another book from Megan Hart.


    If you’ve listened to books by Megan Hart before, how does this one compare?

    The story was different on each one of them but the truth is that I didn't like the end in any of them.


    Did Lauren Fortgang do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She differentiated the characters by making a voice for each one of them.


    Could you see Naked being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I imagine that Matt Bomer as Alex, Gabrielle Union as Olivia, Christopher Egan as Patrick, Daryl Sabara as Teddy and Amanda Seyfried


    Any additional comments?

    I know that we can't influence what a writer's imagination creates, but I love happy endings. Megan Hart's endings leave depressed.
