    In the wake of a failed love affair, brainy beauty Jilly Lovitz takes off for Tokyo. She's expecting to cry on her sister Summer's shoulder, then spend a couple months blowing off steam in Japan. Instead, she's snatched away on the back of a motorcycle, narrowly avoiding a grisly execution attempt meant for her sister and brother-in-law. Her rescuer is Reno, the Committee's most unpredictable agent. They'd met once before and the attraction was odd - tattooed Yakuza punk meets leggy California egghead - but electric.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would if they liked the pathetic type heroine and asian dudes. Super sayan asian guy sounds hot.


    Has Fire and Ice turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No- but i havent been in a rush to read another of Anne's books


    Could you see Fire and Ice being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

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

    Snot and tears. J&C tend to do that to me.


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

    I've listened to the mistress of Avalon series, and I'd say her voice box was developed to narrate this series and this series alone. Granted she sucks at Bree's voice, but Porters voice is the only one I hear when I replay Jamie and Claire quotes in my mind

    Marlie Keen was trying to lead a quiet, ordinary life. She thought the knowing - the clairvoyance that allowed her to witness crimes as they happened - had been destroyed in the nightmare of her past. Then one night it returned with a vengeance, and she desperately needed to find someone to make it stop.

    What would have made Dream Man better?

    A more believable plot with more believable characters


    Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

    Of course. I love Gigante's male voices but his female ones... just doesnt work


    Any additional comments?

    Linda Howard for me has always been hit or miss. This was a miss

    Cursed with the extraordinary power to feel other peoples’ emotions, Megan Fields has tucked herself away in a remote corner of New Mexico, working as a small-town sheriff’s deputy. She finds solace in the silence and heat of the desert. But when Breeds begin dying on her watch, Megan realizes that the secrets from her past can’t stay buried forever. Someone is out for blood - her blood. An arrogant Feline Breed, Braden Arness broods with feral intensity.

    honestly- the only entertaining element of this was the P-word and C-word was used frequently to reference certain areas of the female anatomy, and "entertaining" if only at a juvenile level. I am in no way prude, and I didn't find the vocabulary "distracting", I just felt it was the only part that was worth noticing in this book. It starts off intersting enough, but as soon as the first sex scene comes in, the entire plot seems to dissapate and the book becomes pages and pages of mattress mambo. Then when the plot kicks in again, it all screams Sci-fi meets bad soap opera... really heavy on the cheesiness.

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    What made the experience of listening to Shadowfever the most enjoyable?

    I loved that they used two narrators for this. Especially Phil Gigante. His voice for Jerricho Barrons is so sexy ...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Sinsar Dubh. Those conversations are pretty thought provoking. I sometimes find myself thinking of ways to create without destroying.


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    JZB hands down.


    Any additional comments?

    If you loved the print you have to give the audio a try.
