    Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.

    This 'Immortals After Dark' series just gets better. I highly recommend this series even though you have to read a couple of the books on Kindle. Thank you Kresley Cole. What an exciting world you have created.

    Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn't be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina - her "crazy" great-aunt, who spoke to the dead - a woman was murdered nearby. Craig Rockwell - known as Rocky - is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's team of paranormal investigators. He never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Now another body's been found in those same woods, not far from the home of a woman named Devin Lyle.

    To Dana Steele, books and the knowledge they hold are the key to contentment. But now that search for knowledge must include the second key needed to release three souls held captive by an evil god.

    Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear.

    What did you love best about White Fire?

    Suspense, surprises, wonderful writing are abundant (?) in this series of books. The latest book, White Fire, is incredible. I couldn't stop listening. Hey, can you write another soon?


    What other book might you compare White Fire to and why?

    Perhaps you could compare it to the other Pendergast books, but they are all so good. I do enjoy books by Dave Patterson as well.


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

    You absolutely hear his acting ability! I do love to read but I always felt guilty that I wasn't getting everything done around the house. Now I can become absorbed in great books and attend to life's boring tasks! No guilt!


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

    I was heartbroken near the end. Then, of course, extremely relieved.


    Any additional comments?

    People, listen to any Preston/Child book and you'll be thrilled.

    Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship. Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

    What did you love best about Beautiful Bitch?

    Love this continuing story, but the narrator was weak. Not at all pleasing to listen to this narrator. I probably wouldn't have listened if this were my first purchase by this author. His voice was weak!
    Please don't use him again.

    When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

    Fifty Shades
