    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.

    What did you love best about The Undead Next Door?

    I love the characters and how they play off each other. How they bring out a rich and exciting story, keeping your interest and wanting to know more about them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Love At Stake series is great. The characters, the emotions they show, the fascinating story all pull you into their lives and make you care and want to know more about them. Plus you get to hear more about the others that continues to fill in their characters, making them more real and intersting.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Deanna Hurst’s performances?

    Yes as I enjoyed the way each characters was just enough different that I had no problem keeping them separated and knowing who was speaking at any given time. The characters voices were each separate and distinct.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to getting the rest of this series in audible format.

    The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous... And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly.

    Wonderfully fantastic characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all of the Elantra series and I couldn't imagine anyone else reading these. The life she brings to the characters is absolutely awesome. They come alive and inhabit your mind taking you places you've only vaguely imagined. I've listened to several other stories read by Khristine Hvam and she always brings so much life to the character that pull you even deeper into the story.


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

    These characters, old friends now after reading the entire series, always bring laughter and tears both. That's one of the best things about this series and these characters. They pull you into their lives and you feel their joy, their sorrow and their loves.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series to anyone who likes fantasy, likes strong characters and detailed plots. I've hooked my wife into this series and I'm working on my daughter and granddaughter as well.

    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

    Would you listen to A Quick Bite again? Why?

    I love Lynsay Sands Argeneau series. The characters are fun and so very entertaining and the stories are captivating and keep you coming back for more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Greg's reaction to Lissiana's problem. The interaction of the family and how caring and kind they all are.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when the cousins came up to talk to Greg while he was tied to the bed in Lissiana's room. Their reactions to Greg, their caring way for Lissiana was wonderful.


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

    It definitely made me laugh. The characters are so much fun they make you want to know more and more about them.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series and I would recommend it to anyone who really enjoys a fun and enjoyable story with awesome characters.

    He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    Would you listen to Kiss of Midnight again? Why?

    I read this book a number of years ago and enjoyed it and the others in the series very much. Since I drive around 3 to 4 hours a day going to and from work I love listening to audio books to make the drive more pleasant. I really enjoyed this story but found the narrator's voice just a bit too monotone. It took me awhile to get used to it and eventually the different characters fell into place as it began to sound more natural as the book she progressed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of Midnight?

    I enjoyed the way the characters interact. The connection between the main charactes and how the dynamics of their relationship changed over the course of the story. The realization of their feelings when they were facing off against the cruel Gen 1 leader was very good.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It took me awhile to get used to her voice. At the beginning it was very bland, very blah almost as if she was one of those narrators in a documentary who try to keep everything on a even keel. As the story progressed you could sense a change in the tone, more emotion, showing here and there and it got better. I would have really enjoyed hearing much more feeling in the characters.


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

    Not really. I enjoyed it in the hour and a half, two hour sessions but I think with the voice I would have become bored and tuned out if I had tried to listen to it all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    The series is good and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a great story with interesting characters and plot line. I intend to get the rest in audio books as finances permit.

    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.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes if only for the story line. I really enjoy the Argeneau series. Unfortunately the narrator just doesn't fit the characters. The male characters are all right but the female characters all sound like bad B-Movie characters. The voices forced, higher than you would expect and kind of like Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire. Not my idea of a pleasant read and definitely not like any of the characters in the books that I've come to enjoy and look forward to seeing more of.


    What other book might you compare Single White Vampire to and why?

    Any of the Argeneau series or even Kerrelyn Sparks vampire series. The characters are well developed and fun to follow. they carry you along with them as the story progresses and make you feel a part of what is going on.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeffrey Cummings’s performances?

    Not sure. I'm not thrilled with his performance on this one but maybe a different story, different characters and it would be all right.


    Do you think Single White Vampire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    All of Lynsay Sands Argeneau books are excellent reads. I love the characters, strong, funny, interesting and the stories pull you in making you want to see what happens next. I love listening to them in the car on my drives to and from work.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful series and I plan on getting the rest in audio as well.

    This holiday season, join two of today’s most popular paranormal authors for a special look into their worlds, where creatures are always stirring and no one sleeps through the night. The Bite Before Christmas: Teddy Brunswick knows about the immortals among us. He’s worked with them, called them friend - but he never counted on being snowed in with one over Christmas. Home for the Holidays by Jeaniene Frost: Cat and Bones are looking forward to a normal holiday - at least as “normal” as it gets for the combustible vampire couple....

    Yes. I really enjoy these stories and the characters in them. Both the Argeneau Series by Lynsay Sands and the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost are excellent stories and the characters you really come to enjoy.
