    Lethally sexy undercover agent Stefan Prakenskii knows a thousand ways to kill a man-and twice as many ways to pleasure a woman. So he's looking forward to his new mission: arrive in the coastal town of Sea Haven and insinuate himself in the life of Judith Henderson, an ethereal beauty with ties to the crime lord he's determined to trap...

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

    No, I had read the book first and found it slow. I was hoping the audible book would bring the story to life. but I didn't like the narrator. All of the characters sounded the same.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Christine Feehan? Why or why not?

    Yes, I have listened to all of the Sea Haven series as well as Water Bound and I enjoyed them all. I can't wait for the next book in the series.


    What didn’t you like about Don Harvey’s performance?

    He didn't bring the characters to life. What I really enjoyed with the other Feehan books was the fact that the narrator gave each character a voice.


    Could you see Spirit Bound being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I am not sure who the stars would be.


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to the next book in the series with out Don Harvey

    Dr. Ellie Sullivan has just completed her residency at a large urban hospital. While jogging in a park nearby, she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of wanted criminals, a couple identified as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter’s face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a criminal investigation. Agent Max Daniels takes over the Landry case. A no-nonsense lawman, he’s definitely not the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined, yet she’s attracted to him in a way she can’t explain. Max vows to be Ellie’s shadow until the trial, and it isn’t long before sparks fly....

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

    Yes, the story was entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elle,
    She is caring and positive despite the tragedy in her life.


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

    Christina brings the characters to life. They are three dimensional and believable.


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

    I was moved when Elle told Max about her childhood stalker, and how it tore her family apart.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the audiobook and I would recomend it to others.

    A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. In constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; he cut himself off from those he loved. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever....

    Char says: "Very Good Book"
    "Insightful look at post-traumaitc stress and war"

    Where does Until Tuesday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    top 25


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Until Tuesday?

    Tuesday's abandonment when he was being trained as a service dog.


    What about Luis Carlos Montalvan’s performance did you like?

    Luis has a wonderful speaking voice and since he wrote the book he was passionate about the subject matter.


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

    I was upset with the way people treated the service dog and how unaware people are about the service dog laws.
