    It's 1825 in London, and the two curvaceous and blonde 23-year-old Cynster twins, Amanda and Ameliaare, are desperate to get married. All they need are two fine, strapping gentlemen - preferably with large purses.

    So what do these two lusty young ladies do?They make a visit to the local gaming halls, of course!

    Maisie Rubinstein says: "excellent"
    "Passionate and touching"
    Overall

    Taking the time to comment on this audiobook because it was a truly full story from beginning to end. To me it was a little more touching than simply gratuitous. The passion was exquisite. Thoroughly enjoyed the listen!

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

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

    Will probably listen to this one again. Ranks in top 5%.


    What other book might you compare Feral Sins to and why?

    Have grown fond of PNR. Compares with some of my favorites from JD Tyler and Sarah McCarty. Made me laugh, cry, and not stop listening.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    Character separation both male and female always makes for a better listen and Ms. Redfield did not let me down. She also does not go over the top on the steamy scenes. Intense and hot, yes!


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

    There was a very touching moment between the hero and heroine that did make me cry. But most of the scenes had me grinning til my cheeks hurt.


    Any additional comments?

    Buying second book now.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    What did you love best about Dark Witch?

    I am a huge Roberts fan and while this is not my fave, I loved the new characters. Was ready for another tale set in Ireland.


    What didn’t you like about Katherine Kellgren’s performance?

    Out of control volume! Had a headache by end of first half. Her exuberance really did nothing to help the narration. Tension does not necessarily mean load and the same goes for excitement. More attention to sound editing would have probably helped.


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

    Wanted to as far as the story, but couldn't listen to it for that long. Second half was a little easier than the first.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to next installment. Maybe narrator can do some listening to other highly rated books to improve.

    Krysta is used to getting the drop on vampires. Her "special abilities" aren't much, but the plan is simple - she plays helpless pretty young thing to lure them in. Then her shoto swords come out and it's bye-bye, bloodsucker. Until one night she finds herself with an unexpected ally. He's a vampire, all right, but different. Mysterious. Handsome. And more interested in saving her skin than draining it. Etienne has been an Immortal Guardian for two hundred years-long enough to know that Krysta is special.

    What did you love best about Darkness Rises?

    Strong and spunky heroine with strong and yummy IG. What's not to love!?!?


    What did you like best about this story?

    Really great installment in the series.


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    I initially started the series because ms. Potter was the narrator. Love the way she creates the separate characters. Listening is so much better when you don't have to keep trying to figure out exactly who is saying what.


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot wait for next book in series. There are enough unanswered questions to make you really want to follow the mysteries. Love well rounded listens... Laugh, cry, get mad, lots of sexy steam (very adult!), loving, and the list goes on...

    Sandman. Angus. Morpheus. He is known by many names, except his true one, Adrian. When he departs his world, it is to enter the sacred space of sleep, and he is not there to sow sweet dreams. Adrian's mission is to reap the dark energy of nightmares, work that has twisted his soul as well as his once-handsome face. Now, he lives only to await the day darkness finally overcomes him...and to collect exquisite reminders of what he's lost. But there is one treasure that stands apart. Having risked everything to obtain her, Adrian soon realizes his mistake. For Kathryn has a wholly unexpected power over him,

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

    Somewhere in the middle.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I enjoy Xe Sands narration skills and have sought books with her as the narrator, but if she said guardians instead of gatherers once more, I was going to pull the plug. Argh!


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

    Chasing the devil from dreams... To keep him for yourself.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book of this series and I have gotten caught up in the world that has been created. Looking forward to future installments.
