    The company chairman lay on the cold ground of the woods, his eyes unseeing, his orange hunting jacket punctured by a rifle bullet at close range. Around him stood the four executives with whom he had been hunting, each with his or her own complicated agenda, each with a reason not to be sorrowful about the man's death. If he read it in a book, Lucas Davenport thought, it would seem like one of those classic murder mysteries, the kind where the detective gathers everyone together at the end and solves the case with a little speech.

    Phillip says: "Very good Davenport take."
    "Exciting and thrilling mystery"

    What did you love best about Secret Prey?

    The author presents word-pictures of scenes and events by giving specific details that appeal to the five senses, or to the reader’s imagination. Description presents background and setting. This story had me hooked from start to finish.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This plot did keep me on the edge of my seat. So many of the characters had reason to pull the trigger. Everytime I thought I had it figured out a new twist would unfold in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Lucas


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

    I would leave it as Secret prey a Lucas Davenport mystery

    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling - at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday.

    If you could sum up Chasing Fire in three words, what would they be?

    This story was great from start to finish. I really enjoyed Rowan’s character. A strong heroine who is believable, likeable and stills kicks butt. I didn’t feel any lags in this story and the supporting characters kept my interest without distracting from the main story.


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

    This is my first time listening to Rebecca Lowman and I thought she did an excellent job.

    What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

    I love his accent


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

    I did laugh at the sceens between Lilly and Malcom!

    In the resplendence of William the Conqueror's London court, the lovely Saxon captive, Nicholaa was forced to choose a husband from the assembled Norman nobles. She chose Royce, a baron warrior whose fierce demeanor could not conceal his chivalrous and tender heart. Resourceful, rebellious and utterly naive, Nicholaa vowed to bend Royce to her will, despite the whirlwind of feelings he aroused in her.

    Horse whisperer Shane Stryker is done with passion. This time around, he’s determined to meet someone who will be content with the quiet life of a rancher’s wife. And the fiery, pint-size redhead who dazzles him at the local bar definitely does not fit the bill. Small-town librarian Annabelle Weiss has always seen herself as more of a sweetheart than a siren, so she can’t understand why Shane keeps pushing her away. Shane has formed the totally wrong impression of her but only he can help her.
