    Weddings have the strangest effect on people. How else to explain the fact that Sissy woke up in Mitch's bed the morning after her brother Bobby Ray tied the knot? Or that gunmen are trying to kill Mitch. Sissy Mae now has to escort a bleeding, stubborn, yet still incredibly sexy lion shifter to her Tennessee Pack's turf to keep him safe? It doesn't help that Mitch's appraising gaze makes her feel like the most desirable creature on earth, or that the ultimate stray cat is suddenly acting all kinds of possessive.

    Thank you to whoever slowed down the timing on the narration ... soooo much better than the performance in The Mane Event and The Beast in Him. Overall, the performance was just better .. yay! I can't wait for the next book to show up.

    Dr. Trisha Norbit is flat on her back in a hospital bed, pinned under a really big New Species male. Though drugged out of his mind, he promises her ecstasy and is determined to deliver - but hospital staff intervenes. 215 is a man Trisha will never forget. But, when she meets him again at Homeland... he doesn’t even remember her! But, when her life is in danger, he’s the only one who can save her. As they flee through the wilderness, their desire ignites and cannot be denied. Hot sex, on the run, has consequences that are even more dangerous and will change their lives forever.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I loved the story in this series and still do. It's with the audio book version that I find myself very disappointed.


    Did Vanessa Chambers do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    NO. The narrator just doesn't do much for me when portraying her male roles. Her voice doesn't do well in representing the male characters because rather than being deep it just comes out nasally and too high. This is a big disappoint to me given how much I love this series and the male characters.

    Some things are so worth waiting for. Like the moment when Jessica Ward "accidentally" bumps into Bobby Ray Smith and shows him just how far she's come since high school. Back then, Jess's gangly limbs and bruised heart turned to jelly any time Smitty's "all the better to ravish you with" body came near her. So, some things haven't changed. Except now Jess is a success on her own terms. And she can enjoy a romp - or 20 -with a big, bad wolf and walk away. Easy.

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

    Love this series!. However, this is, for me, the least favorite of the books because I found Smitty to be way more whiny than I thought he would be from how his character was portrayed in The Mane Event. That's just my personal view. I thought the narration was better in the Mane Event, where the characters seemed to be portrayed more distinctly. I would have liked the male voices to sound more ... male. The genders came across somewhat androgynous. The speed of the audiobook was still way too fast (similar problem in the first audiobook The Mane Event). But I love my Shelly Laurenston books and I'll take them any way I can get them.

    Shelly Laurenston turns up the heat with two sizzling novellas. Christmas Pride: How come all the good-looking ones are insane? That's what runs through NYPD cop Desiree "Dez" MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn. Shaw's Tail: Brendon Shaw, hotel owner and lion shifter, has seen better days. He's been beaten, had a gun to the back of his head, and had to be rescued by a Pack of shape-shifting wolves.

    What did you love best about The Mane Event?

    Love this series and loved this book and story. The speed of the audiobook was a real problem as it was way too fast and really degraded the performance - and enjoyment - in the story. I hope the powers that be do a much better job with the subsequent books.

    Genevieve Drake is a Dhampir - half vampire, half mortal, born and bred to be the perfect complement to her vampire mate, like those of her family for 16 generations. Instead, she chose to become a cop. Three months ago, she survived a vicious attack by a psychotic ex that left her with psychic scars and a desperate need for a new line of work. Time to rethink her future. Hunter is tall, dark and handsome - and very, very powerful. He's also been waiting for Genevieve. She was just 16 when he had a vision that they'd one day become lovers.

    "The narration kills this short story ..."
    Overall

    This short story is an erotic romance. The author reading it sounds like an annoying tour-guide or kindergartner teacher reading to kids. Her cadence is a "sing-song" melody and extremely irritating. The story line is fairly light, so the awful narration takes the overall experience down to a zero. Glad I didn't spend more on this purchase.
