    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!

    Molly Harper's werewolf series was cute. Unfortunately, this is a stale vampire story with cookie-cutter characters- very reminiscent of Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse mysteries... and Ms. Harris does it MUCH better.

    Tyler Karras is an honest man, a transplanted Brit living the American dream, but his charmed life takes an unexpected turn when his brother, Nick, is coerced into joining ranks with San Francisco's Russian mafia. Ty intervenes to secure Nick's freedom, yet only succeeds in incurring their wrath. With no choice but to accept Nick's new life, Ty returns to his own, but his dreams are dashed when his wife - pregnant with their first child - is killed, the victim of a reckless crime. Despondent and bitter, Ty macerates his grief in alcohol.

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

    Perhaps a different narrator.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nancy S. Thompson again?

    I would give it a try. The story may be good, I just could't listen to it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Glenn Mckenzie?

    I don't know

    Innocent Angela Bainbridge knows her dreams of a fairy-tale wedding and finding passion in a man's embrace can never come true. So when she's swept into the arms of - and kidnapped by - notorious Lee Raven she's both righteously angry...and curiously captivated. There's something about this brazen outlaw that awakens Angela's desires. She knows any crimes he's committed are for the protection of his family, but Angela realizes that a lifetime together with Lee can never be....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Other reviewers on this page seemed to enjoy it. It is a good deal promoting Whispersync.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lorraine Heath again?

    I have read several novels by Lorraine Heath, and even if she begins strong, she seems to go skidding off the road into implausibility and silliness. This story really didn't even get that far. Sometimes the right narrator can save her.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Moe Egan’s performances?

    But the worst part of this audiobook by far IS the narrator. Her cartoonish take on Mexican and English accents was cringe-worthy. Narrators can make or break an audiobook, this narrator took a hammer and further smashed an already broken story.


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

    No, I can't even use it as a door stop!


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, there are some wonderful romance writers who write strong smart westerns. I'd like to see you introduce some new blood into the romance genre.
