Enter a little Faerie magic, and the search for a bride is on. Caitlyn Coryell is having a really bad day - she just discovered her fiance with another woman!

    Would you try another book from Melissa Mayhue and/or Elizabeth Wiley?

    I love Melissa Mayhue's stories. I adored this book. But I'm sorry, Elizabeth Wiley was just not the voice to use. She has a nice voice, but her attempts at an accent and a male voice at that was distracting. (Sorry Ms Wiley)


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Wiley’s performances?

    Perhaps. If she's not attempting a male voice or an accent.

    As a light-talent, Alice North has the rare ability to make things disappear, including herself - a gift that comes in handy during her magic act with her dust bunny Houdini. Business mogul Drake Sebastian is day-blind, since his sight was nearly destroyed in a lab accident. But he’s the one man who can see Alice when she disappears - and he needs her. On Rainshadow Island, two dangerous Old World crystals are missing, igniting a paranormal storm. Drake thinks Alice is the key to finding them, and proposes they head there, but only after a marriage of convenience.

    Would you try another book from Jayne Castle and/or Joyce Bean?

    I enjoy Jayne Castle/Quick/Krentz stories - two unfortunate items - Ms Bean's male personae is quite difficult for me to suspend disbelief; the abridged version is severely cut and all of a sudden you missed what? Continuity is non-existent and there's no way to tell if you missed something, fell asleep, or ....

    Governess Honoria Wetherby values her independence. She would rather travel the world than marry and give some man control of her life. Then, one stormy evening, fate changes all her plans. She stumbles upon a mortally wounded young man in the woods. When the stranger dies, she is trapped in a cabin with his body and with his newly arrived cousin, Devil, whom she soon learns is aptly named.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Devil's Bride to be better than the print version?

    One thing I love about this audio with Simon Prebble is the fact that he knows how to pronounce all those words in the print edition that I only thought I knew. Love his voice anyway.


    What other book might you compare Devil's Bride to and why?

    A Rake's Vow matches up with how well this one is done


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

    English as it was meant to be spoken/heard and proper enunciation and pronunciation

    Sariana was a cool, confident business-woman, an outcast from the East determined to regain her rightful status. Gryph was an intense mercenary respected and feared throughout the opulent cities and savage frontiers of the West. But from the moment they met, fate made them one. Was it their destiny to be bound to a powerful force that both captivated and frightened them?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story is full of 'visual' information - excellent action and romance.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Natalie Ross did an excellent job and transition between voices was excellent


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

    Would that I could sit and listen in one sitting... or walk...


    Any additional comments?

    Jayne Ann Krentz/Castle's off-world stories are great fun.

    Men in tights never looked so good. At least that's Pepper Marsh's first impression when she attends a jousting competition at the Rennaissance Faire in Ontario. An unemployed and unattached software engineer, Pepper has had enough of the computer geeks in her dating pool. She yearns for a man of yore. A man not afraid to stare death in the face... and laugh at it. A man with a big lance....

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

    I just remembered this being a fun book to read, so I thought the audio would be just as fun. It wasn't. Some parts I didn't remember which isn't such a big deal, but it was boring. I read the book in one sitting and I had a hard time staying awake for this one.


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

    eh.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    a tad too monotone for my taste


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    TV movie, yes. Big screen, doubtful
