    So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood.

    Would you listen to How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire again? Why?

    No. I didn't like the sex scenes and the romance genre has the same story over & over again.


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

    The dentist icked out by blood was fun.

    Moon, once a solitary wanderer, has become consort to Jade, sister queen of the Indigo Cloud court. Together, they travel with their people on a pair of flying ships in hopes of finding a new home for their colony. Moon finally feels like he’s found a tribe where he belongs. But when the travelers reach the ancestral home of Indigo Cloud, shrouded within the trunk of a mountain-sized tree, they discover a blight infecting its core.

  • Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Room to be better than the print version?

    It was nice to hear the boy speak. It made the book come alive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked to concept of "Room". That is only 1 of anything in his world.


    If you could rename Room, what would you call it?

    The title is perfect for this book. It tells exactly what it is about.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book first and wanted to hear it. I was not disappointed.

    For an overpopulated Earth, whose resources are strained to the breaking point, there is only one place to look for relief: straight up. With the successful completion of the Padrugoi Space Station, humanity has at last achieved its first large-scale permanent presence in space. Additional bases are feverishly being built on the Moon and on Mars, stepping-stones to the greatest adventure in all history.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Would you listen to Deadlocked again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again, and have. I enjoy this series, but don't care to watch the tv version. My imagination is much better.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is only okay. She uses a bit of a sappy southern voice and it get wearing after this many books.

    In a time when no Thread has fallen for centuries - when, indeed, many are beginning to dare to hope that Thread will never fall again - a boy is born to Harper Hall. His name is Robinton, and he is destined to be one of the most famous and beloved leaders Pern has ever known.

    Would you listen to The Masterharper of Pern again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to this book again and probably will. I have enjoyed this book for some time and it was nice to hear the words instead of reading them.


    What other book might you compare The Masterharper of Pern to and why?

    I would compare is to any of the Pern novels by Anne McCaffrey. Her's are better than the novels on the same subject written by her son, Todd McCaffrey.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Masterharper Robinton, of course.
