    Squire William Raven has only one goal: to finally receive his spurs and become a knight. When his lord, Sir Robert de Cantilou, returns from a five-year crusade in the Holy Land, William wants nothing more than to impress him. After Sir Robert's return, noble guests arrive from France, bringing intrigue to the castle. William is oblivious to the politics, as he's distracted by nightly visits from a faceless lover, a man who pleasures him in the dark and then leaves....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was captivating and ended all too soon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed the development of the main character. The character had long term goals beyond the relationship.

    Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.

    What made the experience of listening to The Iron King the most enjoyable?

    I loved that the fey realm is entered by one of "us" and seen through our eyes. I love details, like iPods not working, etc.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Iron King?

    The dance where she meets the winter prince.


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

    I love her interpretation of Puck.


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

    I couldn't hardly put this down. I was captivated.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't care if its a "Tween" series. It is a well written story for any age listener.

    Don't look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them. That is Ethan Chase's unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs - including his reputation - begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he'd dare to fall for. Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world - the land of Faery.

    What did you like best about The Lost Prince? What did you like least?

    I like the fact that we get the human perspective in this book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending is dark and foreboding. Wish there was more time with the lead after the final show down.


    What about Jake Lewis’s performance did you like?

    Loved Jake's performance. I didn't notice the performance so much as I believed I was listening to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Great characters in this one. Love the view into the fey in our realm.

    At four in the morning, the night of his 25th birthday, Baron Montford finds himself quite sauced with a large group of gentlemen in his library. Spurred on by revelry, pride, and drink, Montford takes on a wager he'll soon regret: to successfully seduce the virtuous Katherine Huxtable within the coming fortnight.

    Would you try another book from Mary Balogh and/or Anne Flosnik?

    Anne Flosnik is a wonderful narrator for the regency romance novel. She can make an average novel seem better. Mary Balogh's book 2 is so similar to book 1, that I'm not sure there is a point to getting book 3.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was good. I loved the mud pit scene.


    Which character – as performed by Anne Flosnik – was your favorite?

    The grouchy uncle was awesome!!


    Could you see Then Comes Seduction being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    This is not TV/ movie material

    Ewan McCabe, the eldest, is a warrior determined to vanquish his enemy. Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

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

    I did enjoy it for the most part. Thought some of the scenes were a bit over the top and somewhat formula based.


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

    I love stories about the Scots.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator's attempt at a Scottish accent came off as slavic.


    Did In Bed with a Highlander inspire you to do anything?

    I will want to listen to books 2 and 3. Rionna was my favorite character.


    Any additional comments?

    These are not the best, but in the same vein as Julie Garwood.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    Would you listen to How to Run with a Naked Werewolf again? Why?

    I will listen to this over and over. The non perfect characters wrestling with real problems that real people have is very compelling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Caleb is my favorite Graham yet. He's doing his own thing, not just a cookie cutter character that you get in most series.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    Amanda does such a great job emoting the personal struggles of Anna/Tina. I really feel like I can see through Anna' eyes.


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

    The scene where they have to get the ring. That was hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful series. I'll be seeking out more from Molly Harper.

    Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version


    What other book might you compare The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf to and why?

    This is part 2 of a series. I've not read any other books quite like these, but the writing is on par with Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Maggie bites Nick in the bottom.


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

    The scene in the hospital after the wreck broke my heart a little.


    Any additional comments?

    The best thing I can say about this book is that I immediately downloaded book 3 of the series. Captivating. I love the residents of the Crescent Valley.

    What did you like best about this story?

    This is not your typical werewolf story. People have jobs to go to, and bills to pay. No one is ridiculously wealthy. Its a little more adult in that way.


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

    This is my first recording by Amanda. She did a great job.


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

    I laughed several times.

    Great romance.

    Many self-help books offer a lot of new age platitudes and sappy mantras: Just love yourself. See the glass as half full. Really? That’s not how it works, and you know it. A lifetime’s worth of struggle is not overturned in a small moment of positive thinking. But if you have the right attitude - attitude and skills - you can and will accomplish anything and everything you want. This book gives you both, attitude and action. By its end you will have all the tools you need to change your life. No hype. No false promises....

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

    Jillian Michaels takes the philosophy she uses with Biggest Loser contestants and applies it to all areas of your life. And no, there are no crunches. This is about the mental work the contestants do to make a real lasting change in their lives. It is about goal setting and going after those goals.
