    Tammy has always tried to be prepared for any calamity life might send her way but she never imagined a sexy, lion man-beast in her future. He’s stalking closer, growling at her, and she’s too terrified to even flee. Valiant hates humans. But when he gets a whiff of the adorable human female who has invaded his territory, he starts rethinking. Her fear scents of pure, sweet temptation and the closer he gets, the more appealing she becomes. Once he’s got his hands on her, he isn’t about to let her go. One thought will change his life. MINE!

    Where does Valiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I give the story/book a 5 rating. i love the story of Valiant and Tammy. I give the narrator a 2 rating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Valiant?

    Toward the end when Tammy is in the cage with 927 and they are rescued by Valiant and Justice. Tammy tries to help 927 by comparing her first school day to his first time being free.


    How could the performance have been better?

    the narrator did not have any range in her voice. It sounded like she was holding her nose when she was trying to distinguish the different characters. She failed big time with different voices. she made them sound real dorky.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Laurann Dohner's books and to me when I read them the different New Species are very masculine and proud. The narrator ruined the audible book for me. I think a man narrator would be better for the New Species audible books.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the story its self, but did not like the narractor to well.


    What three words best describe Valerie Gilbert’s performance?

    Too bland. To me she did not sound like she was into the story or characters. I didn't like the voice on some of the MAIN characters.

    I thought the book keep me on edge with the suspence, but it did make me sad about the kids.

    I have a lot of audible books and love to listen to them while doing different things. To me the narrator made the story AWESOME!!!! Ms Eastlake made each character have their own personality and to me that along with the story made this audible book Great!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Xavier (not sure I spelled his name right). I love his old world ways, and in the begining he was so mysterious. Mostly I like his gentlemen ways.


    What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

    EXEMPLARY!!!!! She was sooooo good! She realy brought out the characters different personalities. Also, the way se SMOOTHLY transition from one character to next when she was doing the different accents was OUSTANDING!!!!


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

    Yes!

    To most, they are animals—even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And attorney Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair. It’s her job to defend those in need. But there’s absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can’t disguise his sheer strength.

Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she's landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control...

    What made the experience of listening to Darkness Dawns the most enjoyable?

    THE NARRATOR MADE THIS BOOK AN AWSOME READ!! SHE DID THE ACCENTS PERFECTLY.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was written very well. I have bought and read all her books on this series but I enjoyed this Vampire story better on Audible. The narrator really made this book so much better. Thank you Ms. Potter


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

    WOW! I bought the books in this series and read them, however, Ms. Potter really pulled me into the story. Her accents and change of characters were brought to life. I enjoyed the audible better than me reading them and trying to imagine the characters as they speak. Great narrating!!!


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

    Love the whole book, but I loved the interaction between Sara and Rowland. I also like Amy's parts in the book so I bought Amy and Marcus's story.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Potter as a narrator is AWSOME!! Keep Narrating!

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have read all of J D Robb books on Eve Dallas and look forward to the new ones to come. LOVE THEM! I travel a lot and love the audible books and on many occasions have bought books I have already read. However, I did not like the narrator Susan Ericksen. I didn't like her voice for the J D Robb series at all!! ESPECIALLY THE VOICE SHE USED FOR DET PEABODY! SHE MADE PEABODY SOUND LIKE A DUMB DORK!!!! When I read the books I have a great respect for Peabody charature along with many others the way J D ROBB describes them and the characters they play. But the narrator ruines them! I won't buy anymore J D Robb, Eve Dallas audible books with Ms Ericksen as narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really like Summerset in this book because of the interaction between Eve and him.


    What three words best describe Susan Ericksen’s voice?

    Terrible, yuck, nasal.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I would Love to buy more of J D Robb aaudible books, however, because Susan Ericksen is Narrating them I will not buy anymore. I will just read them.

    Would you listen to Dark Curse again? Why?

    The narrators REALLY brought the story to life! I would listen to the book again and have. I love Christines books and have read them all.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Curse?

    I thought the most memorable moment in the book was when Lara found the microbe in the women and removed them from Raven and Savannah during the healing ceremony. To me that was a hugh time/moment when they identified the microbes, saved Raven's and Savannah's babies and determine what was causing the miscarages. This was the hugh turning point to be able to fight Xavier. It was then that Mikhail new what was causing the death of the babies and that his people now had a chance to survive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was the Healing ceremony scene. The turning point in the fight against Xavier


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

    Yes and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt the narrators Phil and Jane did an OUTSTANDING JOB!!! EXCELENT TEAM! They brought you into the story. MADE IT REAL!!!
