    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy reading about the House of Night Gang and all their adventures.


    Any additional comments?

    It is sometimes hard to follow this series in the Audible versions because the narrator keeps changing. I think Edwina might have been my favorite one.

    After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    Tavia Gilbert's performance of all the Night Huntress novels is outstanding. This one just adds to her accomplishments.

    I hate that we have to wait until Spring, 2013 to see what comes next.

    Story

    Todd Aston III's reputation as a playboy preceded him; he wore power as seamlessly as he wore his custom-cut suits. But Marina Nelson had promised her sister-who was marrying Todd's cousin-that she'd help him plan the perfect wedding. And somehow, between tasting cakes and modeling wedding dresses, Marina discovered that she wanted Todd-and that Todd wanted her. She was powerless to prevent the inevitable.

    Judy says: "Nice ending to the series"
    "Okay, yes, it is a silly little romance!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ultimate Millionaire to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version so I cannot compare the two.


    What other book might you compare The Ultimate Millionaire to and why?

    It would compare to any other little romance book. If you like reading them, you will like listening to them.


    What about Gabra Zackman’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did an excellent job.


    Any additional comments?

    Of the three in the series, this one is probably my least favorite just because the story was not as strong with as much humor. Either way, it was still an enjoyable book.

    Story
    (2053)

    Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

    Would you try another book from Patricia Briggs and/or Lorelei King?

    I loved the first four books in this series. I liked the fifth one. This one was definitely the weakest of the bunch. As for the narrator, I always love listening to Lorelei King. She does a terrific job.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect is the love story between Adam and Mercy. I love an Alpha Male! The least interesting aspect is the lack of the rest of the characters in the story. We don't get to spend anytime with the rest of the cast!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the wedding - it was perfect.


    Do you think River Marked needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    We definitely need a follow-up book to see what is happening with Mercy and Adam - I think we may have a surprize bundle coming!
