    If it was still beating. Angus MacKay has been undead for almost 500 years and it's not often something, or someone, surprises him. Until Emma Wallace. The sight of this luscious agent from the CIA's elite Stake-Out team was enough to stop Angus in his tracks. But then he discovers that she's a vampire slayer, intent on killing the "monsters" who killed her parents. And it's Angus's job to stop her.

    It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover, Bones, at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

    If you could sum up At Grave's End in three words, what would they be?

    Will not disappoint you.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cat and Bones of course... the chemistry sparks each word.


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

    I have read and listened to the books. Tavia makes the Audio books. No one else could read this series and make it work like she does. She embodies the characters.


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

    There is an emotional part *** Spoiler Alert *** where Cat thinks Bones is dead and it makes me cry because you never know what the writer may do but it works out well. Trust me.

    Buy it, you wont regret it.

    Genevieve McInnis is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen's rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress - something warm, wicked, and tempting.

    What did you like best about Highlander Most Wanted? What did you like least?

    I liked that the story brought up old characters from the first book. However, the main characters wasn't as like able nor is this book as good as the first.


    Would you recommend Highlander Most Wanted to your friends? Why or why not?

    Honestly no, because I was so happy and pleased with Book 1. I would totally recommend that book but Book 2 was lacking.


    Did Kirsten Potter do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but I didn't get as invested into the characters as I did in the first book. It maybe the story or the narrator or maybe both.


    Do you think Highlander Most Wanted needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No thank you.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the first and leave that be.

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    What made the experience of listening to Dark Skye the most enjoyable?

    Kresley Cole writing skills and Robert Petkoff narrating abilities make the whole series work. Together they make "Immortals After Dark" phenomenal.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Skye?

    How Thronos and Lanthe first met and his cute nick name for her. ****Spoiler Alert**** Also, it touched me at the end of the story when he was getting his memory back he used her nick name. SO... touching!


    Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

    Honestly... all of them.


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

    I wasn't ready for it to end by a long shot. I wanted more.... Kresley makes characters and stories come to life.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The 1st book I liked Sookie the most.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Johanna Parker?

    I personally love Tavia Gilbert. I like her doing Kat and Bones in the Night Huntress series and just love how she did the voice for Denise (southern accent) in First Drop of Crimson. She would have made this audio book awesome!


    What character would you cut from Dead Until Dark?

    Personally I've never liked Sam

    Summer break is over, and Raven is hardly eager to be returning to Dullsville High. Not only does school mean daily interaction with preppy pest Trevor Mitchell, but her sleep-filled days and romantic nights with her immortal boyfriend, Alexander, must come to an end. Plus the shock of morning classes isn't the only change in store.
