    Story

    This Novella is not J. D. Robb's best but it is worth the time to listen too. Dallas is trying to find the killer of club-hopping Tiara Kent who is found in her bed with no blood. With her team having problems thinking that Dracula has come to New York. Dallas must find a killer that will take blood from his victims and convince them that they will live again as a vampire.
    This is a short story, that means that you get half of want you get in a normal J.D. Robb novel. The story line goes quickly, but it is a good listen. If you like the 'In Death' series you will love this Novella.

    Louie Cogburn had spent three days holed up in his apartment, staring at his computer screen. His pounding headache was unbearable - like spikes drilling into his brain. And it was getting worse. Finally, when someone knocked at his door, Louie picked up a baseball bat, opened the door, and started swinging... The first cop on the scene fired his stunner twice and Louie died instantly. Detective Eve Dallas has taken over the investigation, but there's nothing to explain the man's sudden rage or death.

    Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he has, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt or start hunting again....

    Seduction in Death, has to be one of my favorite books in the In Death series. It is well written, keeps you on the edge the whole time. In this book Lt. Dallas and her team are looking for a killer that uses seduction to kill women. Susan Erickson does a great narration in this book; she gives life to all the different characters.

    Twenty-five-year-old Rose McMurray may be beautiful, smart, and capable of running her family's ranch at Whispering Mountain, but she's backed away from marriage three times without giving anyone reasons. Everyone thinks she is a coward, afraid of any adventure, including falling in love. She's never done a single wild or reckless thing in her life...until now. Duncan McMurray, like Rose, was adopted into the family. As a Texas Ranger, he swears he'll never settle down and marry.

    Story

    Wild Texas Rose is the sixth book in the Whispering Mountain series, it is the second book with the second generation. This book follows Rose McMurray the adopted daughter of Teagen McMurray. Rose is the middle daughter and spends most of her life taking care of the ranch house. She has decided not to marry three times always feeling like something is missing in the relationship. Now her friend Victoria has written needing her help. Rose has never done anything wild in her life, but now she is leaving to go help her friend with a problem she knows nothing about.
    Duncan "Duck" McMurray is a McMurray in name only, being the adopted son of Travis McMurray. He has been taking care of Rose his who life, keeping her out of danger not that she would know it. Duck never thought that Whispering Mountain was home if Rose was not there. Now Duncan McMurray is in Dallas working as a Texas Rangers, a pair of train robbers are on trial and have promised to kill every McMurray. So now that Rose is up here and not on the Ranch he has two jobs, the Rangers and keeping Rose out of danger.
    This story is said to be about Rose and Duncan, but it is more like four stories in one. Each story crossing over the other; Victoria and Killian, Abe and the school marm's, and Stitch and Hallie's. Jodi Thomas does a great job to spend all these characters in to one store. Linda Stephens does a great job with the narration.

    Story

    Teagen McMurray never wants to level Whispering Mountain and didn't much like people in general. All he ever wanted to do is take care of his ranch. But when he gets a letter from his only friend Eli asking him to take care of his wife and children, Teagen had no choice but to do what Eli asked.
    Jessie Barton is on the run; now that her husband Eli is dead his mother says that she has no rights to the bookstore that Eli owned and that the three girls should come to live with her because Jessie has no money to take care of them. So Jessie is just looking for a safe place to land for a little while with her daughters.
    This is one of Jodi Thomas' best books. All of the Whispering Mountain novels are great, but this one is one of my favorites. Jessie and the girls bring Teagen McMurray back to life. Linda Stephens does a wonderful job with the narration. If you like the Whispering Mountain series you'll love this one. If you are new to this series you'll find out just want makes Whispering Mountain great.

    Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others - especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman found in his Park Avenue apartment tied to the bed - and strangled - with cords of black velvet.

    This is one of J. D. Robb's best Novels yet. Dallas has a case that looks like a sex game gone wrong, but Thomas Anders is a nice guy. No one that knows him things that he was in to that kind of game.
    At the same time another detective is having trouble with a murder that happen two months earlier. That is when Roarke talks about a old movie called "Strangers on a Train". Now Dallas see how the two murders can be related, but can she prove that her killers used a plot line from a old movie to kill their husbands.
    This is an old story line with a new twist. J.D. Robb does a great job writing this story. Susan Ericksen has become the voice of Eve Dallas. There is no one else that can narrate for this series. Susan has made each character come to life.
