    Best-selling author Rachel Gibson is acclaimed for her quick-witted and endearing romances. True Love and Other Disasters begins as the Seattle Chinooks hockey team owner dies, bequeathing the team to his young widow, Faith. Faith is determined to be taken seriously as the owner, and she’s not going to let anyone—especially dreamy star player Ty Savage—get in her way.

    If you could sum up True Love and Other Disasters in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, tense and fun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Savage! His growling and heated looks fit him to a tee on and off the ice. He's certainly the beast to Faith's beauty.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Bennett – was your favorite?

    Susan Bennett's voice characterizations were dead on. She brought to life the anxiety of Faith's centerfold-turned-hockey team owner through Rachel Gibson's clever words. Both ladies quickly became my new favorites.


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

    Rachel Gibson had my skin itching and heart racing waiting for these two secret lovers to get caught. I loved the humor in her writing and the sexual tension she created.


    Any additional comments?

    When I finished with this book I wanted more!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Death of a Salesman: CliffsNotes to be better than the print version?

    I've not read the printed Cliff Notes, but the audio version was convenient and helpful. My time was so crazy at the time I needed to read the book. Listening to the Cliff Notes in the car gave me the insight I needed.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer L. Scheidt, M.A.? Why or why not?

    If I needed to, I would.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to hear the play too!

    Stevie Corbett is in jeopardy of losing everything she’s sacrificed and worked so hard for – her career, her future. Her life. She has just two weeks to make a monumental decision, but her fate rides on keeping the truth a secret. It’s Judd Mackie’s job to uncover secrets. And he’s spent the last few years dogging Stevie, exposing her for the spoiled glamour girl he believes her to be. Now he has the chance to scoop the story of the year and let the whole world know the truth about Stevie.

    Would you listen to The Thrill of Victory again? Why?

    I loved the story so much it easily became one of my favorites! I tend to listen to Sandra Brown's classic romances over and over. The Thrill of Victory is now at the top of my list!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the development of the characters - both. So many layers are peeled away with such tenderness.


    What about Natalie Ross???s performance did you like?

    She did a great job with the emotion that poured from the characters.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Thrill of Victory and why?

    Judd Mackie. His values, his complexities made him so likable, so desired!

    B.J. Clark despised him. As the manager of the Lakeside Inn, she could only feel contempt for Taylor Reynolds, the man who had bought the hotel. His reputation for transforming lovely hotels into modern resorts preceded him. But when Taylor arrives, B. J.'s loyalties become divided between the hotel and staff and the hot, torrid kisses that she and Taylor share.

    Where does From This Day rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This falls right in with my favorites! The humor and sexual tension compliments the characters and just leaves you with a smile on your face.


    What other book might you compare From This Day to and why?

    Seduction by Design by Sandra Brown read by Jenna Stern


    Which character ??? as performed by Therese Plummer ??? was your favorite?

    Both main characters are great, but Ms Plummer did such an excellent job with inflections, I loved her voice changes from the southern accent of the cook, to the seductive tones of Taylor Reynolds.
