    Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive... so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

    There’s a new vampire in town. His name is Valentine Maxwell. Goth-girl Raven knows this latest intruder can only mean trouble—he’s the younger sibling of two vampires she fought to drive out of Dullsville. But when her brother, Billy, befriends this dangerous tween night prowler, the stakes are suddenly higher. Though torn by the excitement of every teen girl’s fantasy—attending the prom with her boyfriend—Raven must do everything she can to protect Billy.

    If you could sum up Dance with a Vampire in three words, what would they be?

    Relationships are tested


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how the whole series was written with goths in mind that they may look different then most people but they can love, respect others and have a story of their own. Also, how you want something so much like being a vampire but you have to take into count the cost on both sides.


    Which character – as performed by Devon Sorvari – was your favorite?

    Raven.


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

    Yes, and when it's done you just want to go to the next book in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it! It's worth it.

    For goth-girl Raven, dating her dream boyfriend is complicated, especially because Alexander’s secret means that they can see each other only at night. And now the pair must be extra wary in the dark with Alexander’s archrival, Jagger, appearing around town. As if Jagger isn’t enough cause for worry, Luna, his strikingly pale sister, has also surfaced and seems to have her sights set on Raven’s longtime nemesis, Trevor.

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

    Yes! I enjoy the fun young adult book and think it's written well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The romance between the goths.


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

    I have read all of the books and she does a good job. However, sometimes I think she dummies down the characters with her voice


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

    Vampires, goths and love. What else do you need.

    Roundhouse Publishing editor Kate C. Leever’s first letter to her newest legacy author was intended to impress upon him the growing demand for his “vampire romances.” Though he’d expressed little to no desire for publicity, book tours or the like, it was clear that this was a writer waiting to be broken out. Correspondence with Mr. Lucern Aregeneau tended to be oddly delayed, but this time his response was quick and succinct.

    What did you like best about Single White Vampire? What did you like least?

    I love the story. I have read the book over and over. My least part is the narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Single White Vampire?

    The correspondence between the two characters and the cod piece in the renaissance section. I laughed out loud. Awesome!


    What three words best describe Jeffrey Cummings’s voice?

    Don't like voice. I barely could finish the book.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The book is already irresistible but the audio would be irresistible it there was a better narrator.

    It's been a hell of a day for Abby Barlow. In just a few hours, she's survived an explosion, watched her employer die, had a startling dream, and now she finds herself in a seedy Chicago hotel with the sexy, unearthly Dante, a man she both desires and fears. For 341 years, Dante has stood as guardian to The Chalice, a mortal woman chosen to hold back the darkness. A terrible twist of fate has now made Abby that woman. Three hours ago, Dante would have used all his charms to seduce her. Now she is his to protect. And he will do so until his very death.

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

    It was hard finishing this audio book. I have read and reread it over and over in eBook and loved it. However, I didn't I liked the narrator.

    In the book when she became the Phoenix. Audio I don't know.

    She was okay, not horrible but I seem to have to keep making myself listen to it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Going by the eBook then yes.

    It’s summer break, and Raven knows she should stay put in Dullsville until her immortal love returns. But when she decides to go after Alexander, she can’t resist a visit to her favorite Goth-spot, The Coffin Club. Sneaking inside, Raven is shocked to discover a secret door that leads to the entrance of another hidden club. There’s something peculiar about this cryptic hangout—and it’s too enticing for Raven to resist.

    Uilleam MacRieve, a centuries-old Lykae warrior, was captured, caged, and experimented on by a shadowy human order, along with other immortals. During a prison break that devolved into one of the bloodiest massacres in recent history, he escapes. But the aftermath of his unspeakable torture preys on his damaged mind, while the wolf inside him roars for vengeance and carnage. In the days leading up to the full moon, can MacRieve rein in his beast, even when he encounters his mate - a vexingly impossible female unlike anything he'd ever dreamed for himself?

    What other book might you compare Macrieve to and why?

    No other author could compare. A library wouldn't be complete without Immortals After Dark series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when Will finally confides his past and takes control over the situation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I have to say the epilogue. Loved it! Can't wait for more.
