    Dougal Kincaid has something to prove. After being injured in a battle with the Malcontents, he's ready for active duty protecting unsuspecting mortals from these villainous vampires who want to rule the world. But first he has to get control of himself...because just the sight of a certain lovely doctor has his injured hand doing some peculiar things, not to mention the sizzling sensation that burns along his dragon tattoo....

    Melanie J. Luther says: "Not my favorite out of all of Kerrelyn's books."

    If you could sum up The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Sad, Interesting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo?

    Dougal and Vonna the rubber doll!!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paula Costello’s performances?

    No She was not very good. Her Scottish accent was horrible. She keep saying I instead of Aye which means yes, yeah in the Scottish Brogue, but Paula Costello sounded more like the way the Japanese would pronounce yes. She got on my nerves with her narration.


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

    Love at Stake!!

    Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome — and most arrogant. And of all London’s ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one — Caroline Richmond. She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love.

    Orphaned and besieged, Princess Alesandra knew that only hasty marriage to an Englishman could protect her from the turmoil in her own land. To the amusement of her makeshift guardian, Colin, younger brother of the Marquess of Cainewood, the bold raven-haired beauty instantly captivated London society. But when Alesandra was nearly abducted by her unscrupulous countrymen, the fighting instincts that won Colin a knighthood for valor were kindled. Deceiving himself that he wanted only to protect her, Colin swept her into a union meant to be a marriage in name alone...yet Alesandra's tender first kiss and hesitant caress ignited a wildfire in his soul.

    Justice North is the face of New Species. Seeing him up close makes Jessie’s heart race. He’s the ultimate alpha male - big, muscular, exotically beautiful… and dangerous. Of course he’s off limits. But then the sexy man purrs and all bets are off. Jessie Dupree is a mouthy, fiery human female who brings out the animal in Justice. She wants to show him how to relax, and he’s all for anything she wants to do, but Justice has sworn to protect his people and to take a Species mate.

    Yes becasue it one of the best PR I have read. fast paced Hot Sensual Sex Scene strong heroine and hero great story!!!


    What other book might you compare Slade to and why?

    The narrator isn't very good with male voices and all her character voices sound the same.


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

    I Laughed and Cried their are some great funny moments and than their is an attempt rape on the heroine which caused me to want to cry. i hate attempted rape scenes as much as I hate rape scenes.

    Slade is a great story fasted paced, great characters and hot sex scenes!!

    When Destiny was only a child, her family was murdered and she was transformed into a Carpathian: a powerful and shadowy creature of the night, but not quite a vampire. Destiny shares a telepathic connection with Nicolae, her mentor. But now Nicolae needs to find her, or he may lose his soul and succumb to darkness forever.

    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Richard Ferrone?

    NO! I have other Dark series audio books with Richard Ferrone as narrator. I would NOT Have bought them if I had know how bad a narrator he is.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Velda and Inez the 2 sisters


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He didn't sound female in the female parts at all and he sounded evil he should have just narrated the Vampire voice. He doesn't have a stately Old English voice to portray the male Carpathian. Richard Ferrone just sounds creepy!!


    Do you think Dark Destiny needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No because it is a prat of a series and the main characters are in their own books and are also mentioned in the other Dark Series books.


    Any additional comments?

    I have the entire Dark series on audio some by Books in Motion some by Tantor audio and the females narrating this audio books did a great job. I don't think Richard Ferrone is good for this audio series. Get someone else.
