    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.

    What did you love best about Lothaire?

    Robert Petkoffs narration of the characters is brilliant. His Lothaire was PERFECT for the character portrayed. I like how the author mixes in lots of steamy scenes and Lothaire was chalk full of them! Go Russian Vampire!!


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

    I now look for other titles that he has narrated. He is BRILLIANT!!


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

    I always laugh out laud when listening to a KC book. She has a way of making even the trials and tribulations of the supernatural funny, touching and sincere. Almost like real life??


    Any additional comments?

    Because of the pairing with Robert Petkoff i have become totally addicted to Kresley Cole as an author. Normally i don't skip ahead in a series but i couldn't stop myself from buying Lothaire even though it was billed as the last one and so far Audible has only released the first three in the series. (PLEASE do more ASAP!!)

    All i can say is BRAVO!! for a fictional romance type of novel it was brilliant! FUN! SEXY!

    Mr Petkoff could read the phone book and i would be enthralled!! His delivery and use of different accents are PERFECT for each character. His Scotts/Lachay interpretation are now the men of my dreams! His Accent for Lothaire was spot on. I finished this one in only 2 days but the entire time i kept blurting out, "VWOMPIRE!!"

    If you want a really good time just buy one of Kresley Coles books and enter a totally different world full of adventure and sex and modern pop culture.

    i can't wait for the next installment and am already re-listening to the 3 i own.

    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    I really like to get to know the characters and Kresley Cole is the best at character developement! I fell in love with Evie and Jack!!


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs – was your favorite?

    Evie was performed brilliantly!! Jack was quite good too .... They were all done well and i could tell who was talking and distinguish their characters perfectly!


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

    at the end... i know she needed to leave us hanging... but i don't like how it went down with Jack and Evie...


    Any additional comments?

    I am quite fond of Kresley Cole as an author and am addicted to her adult series which is narrated by Robert Petkoff.... (can't go wrong there!) ... I do listen to some YA books and this one was very good for the genre. I do prefer a bit more adult situations... but she managed to get in some real teenage angst and some discovery as well... which is nice... i like to have the characters evolve during a story... which they all did!!

    I will definitly purchase the second installment in this series when it becomes available!!

    I don't know, i rarely have time to sit and read. I can say that without Robert Petkoff's naration i do not think i would enjoy these books as much as i do.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    He is the best narrator ever!! I adore all of his performances and i always look for books he has narrated. His ability to do different accents is amazing. He is also quick with the dialoge scenes and can switch up the accents so that i am always certain of who in the story is talking. I can't say enough about his brilliant performance narration! He is awesome!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy all the Kresley Cole books. They are kind of my guilty pleasure and the second that Audible gets another release i buy it and listen to it straight through, usually only takes me a couple days tops. I rarely do that with the other titles i get. So i guess that means i like her and this narrator a lot. The story usually moves along nicely and there is always at least one or two really good sex scenes. Plus the world of the Lore is fun and interesting and different! GREAT Author with a fabulous immagination! THANKS! :]

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    Would you listen to Covet again? Why?

    I will probably listen again. I really liked the narrator! He did a great job with the all the charaters and i could easily tell them apart! I am quiet fond of J.R Wards style of writing! It is hip, modern and edgy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Covet?

    When Vin saw Gretchen from across the club. I was so there!!


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first to be narrated by him. LOVED his deep masculine voice! thought he was supberb for this book!


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

    I love anything supernatural or different. The whole story line and concept are right up my alley. So well written too!! Never a boring or dull moment!


    Any additional comments?

    I am delighted to see that Jim Heron is in the next installments. i wish he would walk into my life!! I plan on purchasing the next 2 when my credits come in this month!

    Would you listen to The Scottish Prisoner again? Why?

    Yes, i will. The writing in her books is so rich and complex!! i know i miss allot and am just about to go back and re-listen to the entire Outlander series again. Last time i did this it took me a year to get through all of them. But that is a GOOD thing!! i adore being in that world with Jamie and Clare. I am head over heels in love with Jamie though!! I liked it that this book was exclusively about him!


    What does Jeff Woodman and Rick Holmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Narration was great! I can't get enough of the Scots brogue and both narrators did supberb jobs of creating the characters as individual and distinct!


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

    I always have viceral reactions to any DG book!! She has a way of writing that transcends words and goes straight to my heart. I have no idea how she does it but she is a fabulous author!!


    Any additional comments?

    It was thrilling to get a small peak into Jamie's time at Hellwater. I was sad when it ended. i wanted more of him and Willie especially. His character is so rich and developed that i think of him as an entirely REAL PERSON!!! He is someone that is now in my heart as if a relative or friend. I will always recommend ANY book that GB has written or participated in. She is the master!! Always worth the purchase and always memorable, entertaining and REAL! I also always learn something about history or the way humanity thought or felt. What can i say? This author is my hands down favorite of all time!

    I loved Dragos and how he evolved throughout the book. Pia was great too and her evolotion was expected. But the author did a great job of showing how Dragos had never loved and why that would feel so forgein to him. His changes throughout the book were inspiring to me as an author.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an easy listen. Great narrator. Fun story. Some Erotica and lots of humor from the distinctly different characters. I got it on sale and would recommend waiting for it to cost less than one credit but overall a really fun romp for a weekend of listening!

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    i tried this one since it was short and quick and practically free. Wanted to get a taste for this author since she seems to get rave reviews in the genre i like. I wish i could say that i was now going to jump right in and get all her titles but alas, sigh, i don't think i will. I normally don't even give a review if i don't like a book. i try and stick with the positivies i feel about books. This one wasn't even that memorable. i think it could have been half an hour instead of the three something it ended up.

    Shrug, what can i say? Not bad!! Really well written! Just not memorable or stirring in anyway. I didn't get a viceral reaction which is what usually makes me fall in love with an author and read everything they have written. Not so much with this one. Sorry! I just wasn't at all moved and it wasn't something i will think about in the future.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gena Showalter? Why or why not?

    Probably not. See what i wrote above.


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

    I loved his smooth, deep voice! He was GREAT!!


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    No idea. It was lacking something but i am not sure what.

    What did you love best about Lover Avenged?

    I haven't reviewed any of the other books because after each one i am in love with the male lead. This one was about Revenge and i ended up totally falling for him as well. Messed up as he was i wanted to belong to him by the end.

    J.R. Ward has a way of creating a true person from each of her characters. Never brushing over anything or leaving any dark places. Her mirror is uncovered and the lights are on! Naked and unashamed! i really appreciate those kinds of REAL characters.

    Even the homo-errotiscism is okay with me. it is REAL! Intricate and developed beings that can live for a thousand years would indeed be attracted to and love BOTH sexes! It is their souls and not their bodies that we are discovering in each of the BDB books and it is because of the authors ability to show us their souls that i am in love with all of them!

    I can't listen back to back to these books however. They are much more emotional than allot of other stuff i tend to listen too and i often find myself tearing up and crying. But i am working my way through them all and am near the end. i will start her fallen angel collection next.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    I love his smooth voice and easy delivery. I do wish for more distinction between the characters and voices. Wish for a few more accents thrown in there. Not to be that kind of person but here goes; i can only imagine how great these books would be if Robert Petkoff had narrated them??

    But Mr. Frangione is becoming a comfortable friend in my ears and i am glad for the continuity throughout the entire series. I always look before starting a new series and if the narrator changes more than once i usually won't start. So, i am grateful for that continuity.
