    Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    This is an outstanding story that contains richly developed characters and truly great narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although the story itself is quite good, clearly Charlie David's narration was my favorite part.


    Which character – as performed by Charlie David – was your favorite?

    All of them. It is clear that his fine acting skills make all the difference in the world to his ability to inhabit his characterizations.


    If you could rename Hot Head, what would you call it?

    Why rename it, it is just perfect as it is!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to hear another Damon Suede story narrated by Charlie David!!!

    Thorne Lachlan knows a thing or two about getting himself safely out of a blaze. For years he fought in the world's hot spots, a Commando with the Australian Army. Now, retired, he fights flames for the Royal Fire Service. When a grassfire brings him to Lang Downs, the next sheep station in danger, Thorne meets Ian Duncan and sparks fly that neither man can put out. But both men have ghosts from the past that stand in the way of moving beyond mutual attraction.

    Orlando says: "Hopefully the final instalment."

    Would you listen to Conquer the Flames again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely, and I intend to after I have listened to the previous books in the Langs Down series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conquer the Flames?

    When Thorne rescues Ian from the wildfire. Another was when Ian rescued Thorne from the canteen.


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

    Mr. James is a truly gifted narrator who was able to switch from an American accent to a rich and spot on Australian accent and making it sound easy to do! It almost makes me wonderful if he isn't Australian. He was able to voice each character uniquely, so much so that I didn't need the reminders of who was speaking.


    Who was the most memorable character of Conquer the Flames and why?

    I won't spell this correctly, but it was the cook, Cummi. A man of few words who made a huge impact on everyone's life at the station.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm off to buy the rest of the audiobooks in the series!

    Logan Sellers' parole officer has issued three commandments: Stay sober, stay employed, and stay out of trouble. At first, Logan thought those three simple rules would be easy to follow. But that was before he accepted a side job assisting his boss' housebound agoraphobic nephew Caleb. Caleb is deceptively normal for a guy who hasn't left his apartment in three years, and his friendly, caring personality tugs on heartstrings Logan didn't know he had.

    If you could rename When One Door Opens, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't change the title, it is very appropriate!

    What disappointed you about The One Who Saves Me?

    I'm a big fan of Dreamspinner products, Cardeno C and Paul Morey, BUT this was a real disappointment. There were several editing problems, there were continuity problems which surprise me that Paul Morey didn't do something about as he, in a single breath, mixed up the two main charachter's names. Finally, how is it that a boy raised in the northeast, whose parents have NO discernible accents, has a thick southern accent?!? It just seems that everyone involved with this book just phoned it in!


    What could Cardeno C. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shortened it substantially. I just wanted to slap the two main characters across the chops and scream "Snap out of it!"


    What didn’t you like about Paul Morey’s performance?

    Did he choose the character voices or did someone tell him to give a boy raised in New York a southern accent?


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

    Paul Morey is a gifted narrator and I love his voice. Everything else I've heard him read has been outstanding. I don't know what happened on this book, but I hope whomever was in charge gets fired!

    Staff Sergeant Jasper "Ace" Atchison takes one look at Private Sonny Daye and knows that every word on paper about him is pure, unadulterated bullshit. But Sonny is desperate, and although Ace isn't going to take him up on his offer of "anything", that doesn't mean he isn't tempted. Instead, Ace takes Sonny under his wing, protecting him when they're in the service and making plans with him when they get out.

    What made the experience of listening to Racing for the Sun the most enjoyable?

    This is a story where hard work, honesty, hope and love can overcome even the worst of nightmares. Amy Lane has become my favorite author of this genre and Nick Russo did an amazing job switching vocal intonations and accents with great aplomb. I hope Amy and Nick collaborate again in the near future!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Racing for the Sun?

    When Sonny and Ace first meet.


    Have you listened to any of Nick J. Russo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet, but I'm to look for other books he has narrated!


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

    When Sonny met Ace's mother.


    Any additional comments?

    I would HIGHLY recommend this story to any devotee of m2m romance!

    Three years undercover with one of the worst gangs in the country left FBI agent Joshua Chastain shattered. Battling nightmares and addiction, he leaves the concrete jungle for New Mexico horse country, hoping to start over on his uncle's ranch. Foreman Eli Kelly spends his life rehabilitating abused animals, and Joshua is just another lost soul. But as Joshua slowly begins to put his life back together, Eli realizes that Joshua is a lot more than his newest project. Joshua's plan seems to work - maybe a fresh start was just what he needed.
