    Before she met Dragos, half-human half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now, she's mated, pregnant, and heading south to repair the Wyr's frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners, in more places than just the bedroom. In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be.

    What made the experience of listening to Lord's Fall the most enjoyable?

    Draggos was not afraid to let his feelings be known for his mate. I can't believe Pia would want him to big wuss, but it was cute how he softened up to her a lot. I also am so glad that he and Rune finally talked. I didn't like Rune's book because I didn't believe their friendship should have broken up over such a weak misinterpretation. Especially since they had been best friends for centuries.


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

    Her voice impressions. It brought the other characters to life. The voice of Evie gave me pause but for the most part, they were good.


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

    When he goes with his instincts to find her even though he promised to give her a week where she was.


    Any additional comments?

    I sure hope she has more of these coming soon because there are some serious new characters.

    Beth Cornett is the town good girl, so staying out of the way of the motorcycle club's dangerous members is a no-brainer. Unfortunately, Beth manages to catch the eye of Razer, who has every intention of tempting her despite her misgivings. When her worst fears are realized, Beth is left heartbroken and determined to forget her walk on the wild side.Razer will not change for any woman, not even Beth. He realizes his mistake too late, however, and she is not about to forgive and forget.

    Would you try another book from Jamie Begley and/or Elizabeth Hart?

    Not if they are like this one.


    Has Razer's Ride turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I have read some books along these lines and this was too much to take. Taking a girl you know is innocent and "forcing" her to "swallow" by grabbing her head is so beyond degrading. This dude wasn't even respectful. Beth was not very smart. She let this guy do anything to her with the excuse of being more open. So you need to disrespect yourself to be open? I kept finding myself fast forwarding because I was getting so pissed off. If this is Ms. Begley's picture of Biker life? No thanks! They seem to be a bunch of overgrown street gangs who are worse than rappers calling women bitches and ho's! Except, they are living it and these women just can't help but be attracted and drawn into their sexiness! WOW! Delusional!

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

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

    Women who are into this sort of degredation. It just wasn't really romantic. I know Bikers are supposed to be hard-core, but, this type of disrespect just wasn't for me. It was difficult to listen to. Unlike "Motorcylce Man" by Kristin Ashley (which was excellent!), this is a little bit twisted. Horse, who was ex-Marine Corps, sure didn't show a lot of honor. No, he just showed a lot of rediculous anger.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stella Bloom’s performances?

    I don't know.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissappointment. You want them to actually see something different in the women in their life or one they want to be. Other than a lot of sex, I couldn't see beyond her being a doormat and miss ditzy agreeable where no matter how degrading, all she wants to do is F@#$ him. I think the character needs counselling, not a romance book.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those "to each his own" type of books. I wouldn't waste my credits on it.

    Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The heroin. She wasn't very likeable. Contrary can be okay but taken to the extreme gets tedious. She was very reckless and sad to say I was hoping for her to get shot and get a clue since she spent most of her time putting everyone in danger.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Change Indie's attitude. Not cute.


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

    Yes and this on a scale of 1 to 10 gets a 3 from me.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The heroine gettting a clue to danger.


    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as her other series. I still think Motorcyle Man was the best book.

    Hallie has never run so fast in her life. One of the frightening sky warriors from the warship Valiant is hot on her heels and intent on capturing her as his bride. He takes her down, places his collar around her neck. With one word, he claims her. Mine. Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent years rising through the ranks. Hallie is his reward, the beautiful sprite ensnaring him with a glance. Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth.

    Would you try another book from Lolita Lopez and/or Stella Bloom?

    I believe if you are the type that gets off in introducing virginal people into orgies, wife swapping etc. Then this book is for you. I don't see this as the type of Romance for me.


    What could Lolita Lopez have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not really. The whole premise of the book was rediculous. Men coming to a planet and chasing women to find wifes then ties them down in a bondage manner with chains to consummate the "bond". Really?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stella Bloom’s performances?

    Stella Bloom was okay but the book itself was ridiculous.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, Sadness and disappointment that I wasted the first few hours on this ridiculous idea. This is just a book for those who just want to hear people who just want to hear the erotic portions since this is about 90 percent of the book. This book has no real substance or story line.

    Emma Keane is your average city girl trying to get a date. There's just one thing holding her back: the disembodied male voice speaking to her through her mind. Sound kind of crazy? Maybe. But crazy turns downright deadly when the voice persuades her to travel to the wilds of the Mayan jungle. There she will free his body - his incredibly hot, muscled, naked body.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the Narrator because she brought the characters to life. The problem is...you ever had one of those friends that talked and talked and talked and you come to the point where you kind of drift off wishing you could but in to either stop them talking or get them to back track? It started off well and two hours in, I wanted to kill the heroine. How could anybody be that annoying? There was the requisite too many misunderstandings that just got down right irritating. Not a whole lot of action. I got tired of the heroine constantly ready to believe everything negative. She might as well have given herself up to the bad guys in the beginning and saved the rest of us about seven hours of her repeating the same actions over and over again.


    What character would you cut from Accidentally In Love With...a God??

    The heroine and replace her with someone who has a clue.


    Any additional comments?

    The book did have some good bantering but even that began to drone on. I really would have liked to see these characters work together instead of listening to a book full of the heroine talking to herself. Constantly. Of course she comes up with more wrong answers than right. The ending was a cliff hanger. I hate those. The fact that you won't find out the outcome of that story until book three was even more frustrating. It wasn't worth a credit. It's entertainment value lie in the narrators characterization of the characters. This is what saved me from returning the book for a refund.

    Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago. Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to.

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

    I am not a very descriptive person but, WOW! I loved the Gargoyle angle. Right now everything seems to be centered on a Werewolf or Vampire. There are a mixture of races which gives me hope for this series. This is one of the few books that didn't point you to the answer in the first hour of the book and I enjoyed every minute of it. There were a lot of sub stories that didn't overwhelm the book or take over the story. There was just enough to let you know that there is a lot more going on than just this initial story. The heroine was a little weak, but her over protective family clearly showed you why. You get past that and the romance that builds between Terrick and Larrissa gives the story a chance to develop gradually instead of prematurely climaxing and throwing a lot of ridiculous misunderstandings in the way of an actual story. Or lots of sex. which is very irritating when you would like to understand the story itself. I liked it because I didn't have to spend 8 out of the 9 hours and 57 minutes listening the same sex positions in just about everyone's book. Thank you Danielle for giving us an actual tale to follow.!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stone Guardian?

    When Terrick's warriors decided to follow him when the council in his Clan wavered on their loyalty to him.


    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    I LOVE Tavia Gilbert. I buy most books narrated by her because she is very good at giving characters their own voices in the stories she narrates.


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

    Clash of the Realms


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend Danielle Monsch as an author to watch along with this series.

    Lady Shay is the last of her kind. Half human, half Shalott, her blood is a precious aphrodisiac to vampires, who consider it more precious than gold. Though Shalotts are renowned assassins, a curse held over Shay lands her on the slave auction block, where her fate is uncertain. Viper, the beguiling chief of a deadly vampire clan, can't explain his longing to possess the beautiful Shalott who once saved his life, but now he is free to do anything he wants with her. Strangely, while he desires both Shay's blood and body, he wants her to surrender willingly.

    What made the experience of listening to Embrace the Darkness the most enjoyable?

    The action started immediately and continued throughout! I also loved Le'vay the gargoyle. What a surprise to have a funny and unexpected sidekick. He appeared often enough to keep you listening and laughing at is quips. I enjoyed Shay and Viper. Two alpha personalities constantly protecting the other. They were constantly denying their feelings for each other but their actions blatantly showed the opposite. Very enjoyable to see these two fall hard. Le'vay, although cowardly was just funny!


    What other book might you compare Embrace the Darkness to and why?

    Surprisingly, this was the first time I didn't compare one of the other books I had read to this one.

    Most schoolteachers count the days until summer vacation, but not Gwen. Sure, she loves her job, but it doesn’t exactly pay well. So when a student’s father asks her to fill in for his nanny for the summer, Gwen should be thrilled. After all, Alexander Romanescu is insanely wealthy, and she adores his daughter, Isabella. And yet… And yet she can’t shake the nagging feeling that saying yes to this man could lead to much more than she bargained for. Not to mention that the gig isn’t even in Los Angeles - it’s at the Romanescu’s isolated estate in Transylvania.

    This book was very misleading. It wasn't really a romance. Just because you have sex doesn't make it a romance. The questions about whether or not she was actually a descendent of Vlad Tapesh was very fuzzy?! Gwen was whiny and unsure of everything except that she really didn't care about her baby's father. One who came off as a weak punk because he loved her.
    The most dissappointing one I have ever listened to. This book had no heart only the whiner that is Gwen because everything seemed to be about what she wanted to do. I was still looking for all the things she said about Alex in this book but never could find. Maybe it was in the portions that was cut out of the audio book. Truely a waste of my time and I strugged to finish it hoping it would get better or that they would have some kind of resolution.
