    Cavanaugh, a former member of Delta Force, is hired by a brilliant scientist named Prescott who needs protection from a drug lord seeking the highly addictive drug he has invented. At least that is what Cavanaugh is led to believe. After Cavanaugh trains the scientist in escape and evasion, the unthinkable occurs: Cavanaugh's team is viciously attacked and entirely wiped out - and Prescott seems to be in collusion with the attackers.

    The speaker was so slow that I could not listen to it at all after 10 minutes. I tried to increase the speed but it didn't help. I've listened to many audiobooks and this is the first I had to stop for slow narration. I very seldom give this low of a rating.

    His father unknown, his mother dead, Nicholas Roman was raised by the vampire Breed with one wish: to live as a normal vampire. But once he's transformed against his will into a gifted immortal, Nicholas now has one goal: to stop the Eternal Order of vampires from controlling his life and from transforming more males from his bloodline for their vicious reign. Then comes a beautiful stranger with a startling secret.

    What would have made Eternal Kiss better?

    Characters I cared about and maybe a different narrator and a more compelling plot


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tavia Gilbert?

    She has been fine in other books.

    With no other family and a life spent in and out of institutions, Aden and the souls have become friends. But now they're causing him all kinds of trouble. Like, he'll blink and suddenly he's a younger Aden, reliving the past. One wrong move, and he'll change the future. Or he'll walk past a total stranger and know how and when she's going to die. He's so over it. All he wants is peace. And then he meets a girl who quiets the voices. Well, as long as he's near her. Why? Mary Ann Gray is his total opposite.

    Story

    I like Gena Showalter's adult books very much. This, however, has too much teenage angst for me. Everything causes angst - boyfriend, boy friends, girl friends, shapeshifters, Dad, voices in one's head, new school, bullies, memories being wiped clean -- the usual high school stuff.

    Why is red meat red? How do they decaffeinate coffee? Do you wish you understood the science of food but don't want to plow through dry, technical books? In What Einstein Told His Cook, University of Pittsburgh chemistry professor emeritus and award-winning Washington Post food columnist Robert L. Wolke provides reliable and witty explanations for your most burning food questions, while debunking misconceptions and helping you interpret confusing advertising and labeling.

    Story

    As a bit of a foodie and a bit of a scientist, this book was at a perfect level for me. There was enough techie talk without being boring and enough practical information to be useful with a good dash of humor throughout. I liked the variety of topics. I enjoyed this book very much and will view my cooking with a more informed eye - or perhaps I should say taste my cooking with a more informed tongue.

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    Michael Cavacini says: "An Entertaining Start To A Classic Series"

    And I love John D. MacDonald for writing this series. I was excited when this series was introduced on Audible. MacDonald paints the best words pictures of his characters. You know not only what the character looks like but the description goes deeper - under the skin and into the psyche. If you like Michael Connely, Lee Child or John Sanford then you must read John D. McDonald. For me, he is the start of this genre and sets the bar very high.
