    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    If you could sum up Fifth Grave Past the Light in three words, what would they be?

    ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! I can't wait for the next installment!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The progression in the romance between Charlie and Reyes. And finally some answers


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

    Everything. I can't imagine this series being narrated by someone else. She does such a fantastic job of drawing you into the story and bringing the characters to life.


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

    It made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes at points.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a great read (or listen)

    Two-hundred-year-old Daegan Blackwell is one of the last remaining Empowered, an ancient magical race. Daegan's duty is to lead and protect his remaining Brethren in the coming war foretold by prophecy. The last thing he expects is to meet the one woman who will either save or destroy him - his destined mate. Fiercely independent Realtor Olivia Farrell believes darkly handsome Daegan is simply a prospective client. Until she's attacked by a man with a strange aura - and Daegan fights him off.

    What did you like best about Darkest Caress? What did you like least?

    I liked the story line but I really thought both the hero and the heroine were kind of annoying and some of their actions were stupid. Would've appreciated the story better if the characters actions were a little more realistic

    For Faith and Mark, the telepathic connection they’d shared for years was nothing compared to the scorching physical connection they realized as adults. From the first moment they came together, "erotic" was too pale a word to describe their relationship. Together they explored each other's deepest, darkest desires. But now Mark, survivor of an ambush to his Delta Force team, is a prisoner of a terrorist group in the Peruvian jungle, and his telepathic communication with Faith is his only contact with the world.

    What did you like best about Jungle Inferno? What did you like least?

    I liked the story but the narrator is awful. I really did not like the voices the narrator used especially the voice she used for the male lead. There was nothing sexy about it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She did such a poor job with the male lead character that it made it hard to listen to the book. Also, she did an awful british accent.

    To save innocent, young Storme Montague from the claws of Breed slave traders, Wolf Breed Styx is forced to claim her himself - on the condition that Storme will no longer be a virgin by night's end. And though Storme's defenses are up, Styx will free her - in ways she never expects.

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

    I really tried to like the heroine but I really wanted to shoot her. God! Such a whiny, irritating character. It made the romance between the hero and heroine totally unbelievable.


    Has Styx's Storm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I will continue with this series and the genre.


    What aspect of Brianna Bronte’s performance would you have changed?

    The voice she used for Jonas sucks.
