    After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends - those poor romantic fools - plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache. Until Marielle.... She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past.

    What did you love best about Vampire Mine?

    What I loved about this book is the innocence's of the Angel and how she had to learn about being a human from those around her. It was funny to hear how everyone was trying to impress her and put their best foot forward, while the Angel didn't judge anyone and thought everyone was wonderful for who they are.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Vampire Mine?

    When Marielle got into the closet with Conner, and the conversation that took place there.


    What about Gabra Zackman’s performance did you like?

    I think she did a good job at being the narrator for this book.


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

    Yes, however real life takes away from audio book time :(


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and how each book is about one of the main characters explaining more about them and their past.

    This book was great, I enjoyed it because it put possible real life situations in perspective for both Laken and Will.

    The most memorable part was when Will showed Laken how much he loves her.

    When rising rock star Joe Hawk wanders into the diner where Liss works her dark night is brightened by his incredibly blue eyes and sexy smile. The attraction is immediate and every moment is charged with erotic heat. He's searching for something real. The first impression is easy. Taking the next step is much harder. The plus sized beauty has to overcome her insecurities to take a risk on a man whose life is the opposite of everything she knows and changing faster than either of them knows.

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Destined for an Early Grave to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version but there is a points in the story were I feel it is better to have the audio copy then the digital/printed copy. Some aspects of the book are more effective if they are heard rather than read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Destined for an Early Grave?

    When Cat was remembering her times with Gregor and then how it made Bones feel.


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

    This series is the only time I have listened to Tavia narrate but she does an excellent job.


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

    Yes I started it on Monday and will complete it on Wednesday. If life didn't happen I would have never taken my head phones out.

    FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her - except Robby MacKay?

    Where does The Vampire and the Virgin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This story is a great story, but there are parts where the main character Olivia got a little annoying but the over all purpose of the story was good and the audio version of this book was good.

    How this book ranks compared to other books i have listened to it's in the definitely would listen to again pile and recommend to others pile.


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

    I haven't listened to this narrator before but she did the accents wonderfully.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    So far I have looked up the other books in this series and i'm not sure why each book is narrated by a different person which creates a strong frown on my face because Therese Plummer did a great job.

    They call him the Devil.... He is the most notorious laird of Scotland: fierce, cold, deadly...and maybe even worse. Yet Evelinde has just agreed to wed him. Anything, she thinks, is better than her cruel stepmother. Though Evelinde should be wary of the rumors, she can't help but be drawn to this warrior...for the Devil of the Highlands inspires a heat within her that is unlike anything she has ever known.

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

    I would recommend the book to a friend either in e-reader format or typical book format but i'm not to sure about the audio format. Because there were some character voices that were a bit annoying. But the overall story was good.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


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

    A moment that moved me i'm not sure of but there were parts of the book that made me laugh and smile especially when the main character was telling her husband off, it was quite humorous.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was good it had humor, romance, and a good story line to back it up.

    He comes to her more dead than alive, a towering black-clad stranger riddled with bullets and rapidly losing blood. As she struggles to save him, veterinarian Tess Culver is unaware that the man calling himself Dante is no man at all but one of the Breed, vampire warriors engaged in a desperate battle.

    Denise says: "The Midnight Breed series is GREAT!!"
    "Beautifully Writen"
    Overall

    This is a wonderfully written book in the series, I like how the characters are drawn together slowly and how they both need something from each other but they don't want to put the faith in it until closer to the end, when they realize they need each other to survive mentally.
