    Story

    This is a fabulous fairy tale of a book, with delightful characters, suitably steamy encounters, humor, and wit, and Susan Duerden does a wonderful job of reading. I'm in love with her hero's voice!

    Caleb is a man with a singular interest in revenge. Kidnapped as a young boy and sold into slavery by a power-hungry mobster, he has thought of nothing but vengeance. For 12 years he has immersed himself in the world of pleasure slaves searching for the one man he holds ultimately responsible. Finally, the architect of his suffering has emerged with a new identity, but not a new nature.

    Would you listen to Captive in the Dark again? Why?

    I'm almost embarrassed to admit I enjoyed these books, but fantasy is fantasy, and if it works, it works. Not for the faint of heart or anyone wanting a sweet, gentle love story. I'd probably listen to certain scenes again, but not the entire book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captive in the Dark?

    LOL! I'm ashamed to admit it. I did like the hero's background, and how really wicked he was, wanting to lick the heroine's tears.


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

    Emily Durante is always good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Don't trust gorgeous heroes.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not a great book, but it's sort of fun kink and better written (and much better narrated) than 50 Shades of Gray. There's all the naughty stuff -- bondage, toys, anal sex, spanking - but it doesn't pretend to be anything else, and the characters have justifiable (almost) motivation.

  • Exit Strategy: Nadia Stafford, Book 1

    Regulars at Nadia’s nature lodge don’t ask what she does in the off-season. And that’s a good thing. If she told them, she’d have to kill them. She’s a hit woman for a Mafia family. Tough and self-sufficient, Nadia doesn’t owe anyone any explanations. But that doesn’t mean she always works alone. One of her contacts has recruited her in the hunt for a ruthlessly efficient serial killer cutting a swath of terror across the country. The assassin is far too skilled to be an amateur - and the precision of the killings is bringing the Feds much too close to the hit man community for comfort.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Exit Strategy to be better than the print version?

    Jennifer Ikeda does such an outstanding job on this that I can't imagine it without her voice. She does everyone so well, including the male characters, that I'm searching for more of her work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Exit Strategy?

    When Jack makes Nadia hot chocolate.


    What does Jennifer Ikeda and Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's the perfect voice for Nadia, helping you get into the complicated heart and soul and mind of a contract killer, plus her Irish brogue for Jack is downright sexy.


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

    The scene when Jack's leaning over her and she begins to realize she's attracted to him. Plus the scene in the closet.


    Any additional comments?

    This is violent, fascinating, angst, funny, and the romance is so subtle it's deliciously addictive. Jennifer Ikeda does a great job of bringing out out a wonderful story, and Richard Ferrone's villain and victim POV are excellent as well.

    Charming, sexy, delightful!

    Lorraine Heath or Jennifer Ashley's historicals


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

    No, but she's excellent.


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

    I was particularly moved when the heroine finally sent her brother away.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope more of Tessa Dare's books are made available, if they're as good as this one.
