    Word has spread that contractor Mel Turner can communicate with the spirits of the dead, and she's having a hard time maintaining a low profile. She decides to embrace her reputation for the chance to restore a historic house that calls to her. The new owners, who hope to run a haunted bed-and-breakfast, want Mel to encourage the ghosts that supposedly roam the halls to enhance the house's paranormal charm. The catch: Mel has to spend one night in the house to win the project.

    Turner Construction's latest restoration project is a historic Queen Anne Victorian in San Francisco. This time, general contractor Mel Turner has to work around the owners, who insist on sticking around-along with some ghosts that insist in their own way that the work stops. The ghosts aren't the only ones standing in the way of the renovations. A crotchety neighbor, Emile Blunt, secretly wants this house and could be behind some of the disturbances. But when Emile is found dead, it's Mel who appears guilty.

    With this book we get to know our main characters a little better and the author does a great job describing the scene. As the mystery unravels you find yourself totally changing your mind from what you first thought of some of the guest characters. And as always there is a little history lesson about San Francisco. Enjoy!

    Melanie Turner has made quite a name for herself remodeling historic houses in the San Francisco Bay Area. But now her reputation may be on the line. At her newest project, a run-down Pacific Heights mansion, Mel is visited by the ghost of a colleague who recently met a bad end with power tools. Mel hopes that by nailing the killer, she can rid herself of the ghostly presence of the murdered man - and not end up a construction casualty herself....

    I love Juliet Blackwell's writing style. Her main characters always are polite and thoughtful with a dash of humility. Mel is no different she's a smart confident woman (although she doesn't know it) working in a man's world. After reading this book I immediately bought the next. If or when your looking for good clean fun stop right here.

Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

    By the time I got to the 11th book in this series it felt like all the Brothers were good friends and my emotional attachments to them made this one of the most enjoyable book in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm going to go with the obvious, Quinn. Especially because he save the life of my favorite Brother.


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

    He did the whole series and I think he was an excellent choice. He, like the author, keep it pretty consistent.


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

    First time in all my life I ever got hot over a male on male sex scene. Maybe it is because this love affair had been building for several books. Truthfully all the books in this series made me laugh and cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Such a great series and so well written. The writing style is fresh and different for this genre, she has a real solid point of view and every character is super cool. You know I can't say that every series that I have read, by whoever, continually puts out a good product after 11 books but I can surely say this about The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Where does A Hunger Like No Other rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was so fun it was in a class by itself.


    What other book might you compare A Hunger Like No Other to and why?

    I guess the Black Dagger Brotherhood may compare. If you like this series you would like BDB. The world building is very detailed and stays consistent even though each book is about a different set of lovers.


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

    Lachlain MacRieve!


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

    I did have an extreme reaction to these characters, the Werewolves were a hoot and when they finally get down to it, it's hot.


    Any additional comments?

    So far I've loved every book in this series except the last one and only because I haven't read it yet. The author does have a formula that by the 3rd book you've figured out but have no fear the mental masturbation does get relieved eventually so once you've read a few you can deal more easily. But although you can predict some of it, the story lines are great, they're well written and a whole lot of fun. I'd recommend this series to all my girls at work.

Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness.

    Would you listen to Undead and Unwed again? Why?

    I went through this entire series twice.


    What other book might you compare Undead and Unwed to and why?

    I would recommend this series to anyone who read the Sookie Stackhouse series and vise versa.


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

    Wouldn't that be great. It would mean that I didn't have to work and I was sitting around eating Bon Bons and listening to MaryJanice Davidson all day. Not a bad way to live.


    Any additional comments?

    My husband says I have a lot in common with this character.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    What did you love best about Reflected in You?

    I loved when they escaped to the beach house. Living on the water all my life I could imagine hearing and smelling the ocean while I walked on the beach with our star crossed lovers listening on there private conversation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sex was great! More real to me than in most stories.


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

    I'm not sure if I've heard any other Jill Redfield performances but she did a great job on the Crossfire novels.


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

    For the love of obsesion.
