    The last person Daria Babcock expects to find in her grandmother’s home is a brawny, naked Highlander. She doesn’t buy Mamie’s explanation about finding the poor man shot in the woods. Nor does she trust the gorgeous laird, who insists his own memory fails him. But Daria came to Scotland looking for adventure and romance, and after the intriguing stranger kidnaps her, she gets her wish - and so much more....

    If you could sum up The Last Debutante in three words, what would they be?

    An intricate story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Debutante?

    The secret of the family and all the little twists and turns...very well done.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Daria learns the truth of the family.


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

    Parts I felt so sorry for Daira, it was as if she had been played here whole life, but her family was just protecting her. Other parts were wonderful with her and Jamie the Laird.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not really a historical romance reader/listener, but I did find the overall story to be quite interesting with the little subtle twists and the way Daira handled herself throughout the story...this is one pretty determined debutante and a good survivor. Thumbs up and thinking I may go back and look at some of the other books in this series.

    Uilleam MacRieve, a centuries-old Lykae warrior, was captured, caged, and experimented on by a shadowy human order, along with other immortals. During a prison break that devolved into one of the bloodiest massacres in recent history, he escapes. But the aftermath of his unspeakable torture preys on his damaged mind, while the wolf inside him roars for vengeance and carnage. In the days leading up to the full moon, can MacRieve rein in his beast, even when he encounters his mate - a vexingly impossible female unlike anything he'd ever dreamed for himself?

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

    Yes, once again KC has captured RL news and put it in her wonderful stories


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Macrieve of course and really liked his twin...who is the voice of reason.


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

    RP does such a great job with Kresley's books, its very difficult to say which is a favorite.


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

    This is a roller coaster ride, you may find yourself crying on one chapter and laughing on the next.


    Any additional comments?

    Uilleam MacRieve aka Will believed he’d laid to rest the ghosts of his boyhood, and then he is captured by the Order, and all his ghosts come back. Chloe is going thru changes of her own, and captured by the Lore and put on the auction block. As the daughter of the leader of the Order she is much hated...but as you may have guessed she is Will's mate. He must come to terms with her turning and what she is turning into, and bury his own past to move forward. Chloe has to come to terms with the fact that she is becoming something that her father hates and studies and become what she is meant to be for her and Will.

    Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf again? Why?

    Ohhh yes, Maggie and her political incorrectness and Nick the outsider aka Monkey Man who can be so naive about Maggie.


    What other book might you compare The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf to and why?

    Any of the "Naked Werewolf" series by Molly are so funny and cute, and yet still have the nice "who dunnit" endings along with the bad man getting his due.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Loved the scene when Nick was sitting on an outcropping of rock overlooking the valley and Maggie approaches in her wolf form. Nick thinks that Mo (main character from book 1 another must read, but not manditory) is the werewolf and calls Maggie...Mo. Maggie in turn huffs at him, and promptly bites him on the rearend...then there's references of inflatable donuts and so on...makes for some fun listening.


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

    This is just a wonderful listen, although there are some serious issues here and there and they aren't taken lightly...(caring for the elderly who have memory issues) but they are warm and caring pack who take care of one another. Just a funny and entertaining read.

    Where does How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Molly and Amanda are a dynamo...you can't beat these two teamed up on a storytelling adventure. Love the story line, and the twists and turns that Molly has in her books.


    What other book might you compare How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf to and why?

    How to Run with a naked werewolf another great with Molly and Amanda, and also the Lynsay Sands series (although not quite as funny as Molly but still a good read/listen)


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

    Amanda has a wonderful strong voice, and does a wonderful job with different character voices. I've become quite the fan, and have started looking at other books she narrates.


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

    Dating the average guy is easy you should try flirting with a werewolf!


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely can't wait for Molly's next book in this series, and I hope that Amanda will be right there with her wonderful voice.

But when Leigh finds out that the handsome "someone" at her great aunt's wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts - not that she was intending to sleep with the guy.

    Well of course the ending, but the story was so nicely done, and flowed so well. I don't really consider myself a happily ever after modern romance reader, but the simplicity of the story had me hooked. Such a cute read/listen!


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

    She is wonderful, love the outtakes at the end...just shows listeners that alot of time and practice and patients goes into getting it right.


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

    When he forgot his own words to her, and she walked away never to return. Couldn't believe it!

    Yes, maybe a possible humankind to come...but it's looking like Sasha will change that for the Psy...because she is flawed and has emotions. Then Lucas enters the picture and our changeling is a powerful leader to his people and for some reason is drawn to Sasha.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    I would name it the same as the book...very attention grabbing and lets the viewer know it's fun and has a "bite" pun intended ;)


    Any additional comments?

    I am waiting for the next one of these to come out...Molly has hit pay dirt as far as I'm concerned...I laugh out loud, and for some reason can see myself in some of these situation, and I love to use the lines in her books..."evil pixie" is going to stick with me for quite sometime.

    It seems like good luck when gorgeous and mysterious Ken Callahan stops to help single mom Chris Nelson with her car. But then she breaks his arm...then his toe...and then his heart. Not easily discouraged, Ken moves into her basement...cooks her potholder in the spaghetti sauce...attempts to seduce her with cookies...and destroys her favorite pan by trying to make a roast in it. All may seem lost for Chris and Ken, until a meddlesome Aunt Edna, a ride on a Zamboni and a genuine love of family all conspire to turn their luck around.
