    Would you consider the audio edition of Unveiled to be better than the print version?

    Rebecca De Leeuw has now become my favorite narrator. She is masterful in this performance.


    What other book might you compare Unveiled to and why?

    I was as captivated by this book as I was by Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale. High praise indeed!


    What does Rebecca De Leeuw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. De Leeuw drew me into the book in the first few minutes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! I had to pull myself away from it in order to do things like, go to work!

    Once upon a time...as a fair maiden lay weeping upon a cold tombstone, her heartfelt desire was suddenly made real before her: Tall, broad of shoulder, attired in gleaming silver and gold, her knight in shining armor had come to rescue his damsel in distress.... Hailed worldwide as one of the most romantic novels of all time, Jude Deveraux's dazzling best seller "will capture your heart - and hold it" (Daily Herald, Chicago) with its breathtaking tale.

    I found this book title on a list of the 10 best historical romances, a list that included Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice! I immediately bought the audio book and found upon listening that I had read the book before. I loved Steve West's performance. It made a book that I slightly remembered into one that I will not forget. It WAS a fantastic story!

    Would you consider the audio edition of To Wed a Wild Lord to be better than the print version?

    I found the narrator to be very compelling, therefore, the story came to life through his narration.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene at the race course at the end of the book.


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

    I love the romantic scenes in books and this one had several.

    Heartsick and desperate to leave her sorrows on England's shores, innocent Georgina Anderson seeks passage on the "gentleman's ship", Maiden Anne, disguised as a cabin boy. The captain, however, is no gentleman; he's the ex-pirate and irrepressible rake, James Malory.

    Would you try another book from Johanna Lindsey and/or Laural Merlington?

    I have read books by Ms. Lindsay before and enjoyed them. I am not sure how much of an effect the narrator had on my opinion. I really disliked the narration!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Laural Merlington’s performances?

    No, I would not.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a book where I really didn't like either the hero or the heroine!

    Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it. Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she? Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was certainly not for me. I don't know who would enjoy reading it. It is extremely graphic!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sweet Surrender?

    The very pornographic sex scenes!


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed other Maya Banks books. I just did not enjoy this one at all.

    He's a duke. He's a mathematical genius. He can't talk and he's locked in a lunatic asylum. Only a modest Quaker girl can reach him, but when she helps him to escape, she's swept into his glittering aristocratic world, her life torn apart by his desperate attempt to save himself.

    Would you listen to Flowers from the Storm again? Why?

    I have already listened to it more than once! Nicholas Boulton's performance is a masterpiece! I am generally inclined to stay away from male narrators, but Mr. Boutlon is in a class of his own!


    Which character – as performed by Nicholas Boulton – was your favorite?

    I loved his performance of Christian. The halting speech, his very struggle, is clear in Mr. Boulton's performance.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot rave enough about this book!
