    Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed - until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive. Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. Soon passion burns between them.

    Summer break is over, and Raven is hardly eager to be returning to Dullsville High. Not only does school mean daily interaction with preppy pest Trevor Mitchell, but her sleep-filled days and romantic nights with her immortal boyfriend, Alexander, must come to an end. Plus the shock of morning classes isn't the only change in store.

    It bit: New York hotels cost an arm and a leg, and Terri had flown from England to help plan her cousin's wedding. The new in-laws offered lodging. But they were a weird bunch. There was the sometimes chipper, sometimes brooding Lucern, and the wacky stage-actor, Vincent. (She couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier singing-and-dancing Dracula.) And then there was Bastien. Just looking into his eyes, Terri had to admit she was falling for him.

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

    I don't know if I would recommend the audio book to a friend but I would and have recommend the book/series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters and the pitfalls of wedding planning.


    What three words best describe Jeffrey Cummings’s voice?

    Not the best. I only bought the audio because I like the series and wanted to listen to it at work but he's okay but not my favorite. When he does the female voices it sounds corny.


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

    No, but wish I could have fell into the story and forgot I was listing to it. When I listen to Kresley Cole's series narrated by Robert Petkoff you completely step into the story and blissfully enjoy it all the way through.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
