    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.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Donna Rawlins’s performances?

    Absolutely not. The midwestern accent gets old quick and her accents are off. It's very clear she doesn't quite connect with the characters. For example: a scottish character that says "ye" its not some old-timey yee. It's just part of the accent. They don't always say the whole word. Oh, and clit-OR-is. The mispronunciation got me every time.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book I've read previously. I like to listen to audio books as I drive, but don't want something I haven't read before, because I tend to miss stuff. As a read, this has always been one I particularly enjoyed, but the narration just makes it drag and make me wonder what is taking so long with this plot... A shame. If you like the series, go read it on your own. Definitely worth it.

    Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin....

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

    Yes. I've read this book previously, but I honestly liked it more after listening to it. It's light and humorous and the antagonist isn't some big bad.


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

    It's very clear that Ms. Sparks has very little control over how her books are narrated, but this narrator is just one of the best. I can understand the pseudo-monotone might bother some, but her dialogue is right on the money.
