    Standing on the cliffs of 12th-century Ireland following the disappearance of his twin, Hoyt Mac Cionaoith is visited by the goddess Morrigan and is charged with the ultimate of tasks: saving his and all future worlds. His enemy, the beautiful but deadly vampire queen Lilith, has had over 2,000 years of experience in cruelly killing and changing humans into one of her own - including Hoyt's brother, Cian.

    What disappointed you about Morrigan's Cross?

    While I truly enjoy Nora Robert's stories, I do not enjoy this type of theme. Nora Roberts writes very captivating stories and this is just one that I did not enjoy.


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am sure that others will enjoy this book, just not my style.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    I am sure.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    As I said, Nora Roberts writes very captivating stories, this was just not my type. I will continue to listen to stories she has written, just not this type.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen everyday to a story, I truly enjoy audible.

    What would have made Coming Undone better?

    I really enjoy romance stories, but this one was very illicit for me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lauren Dane again?

    I don't know, if all her books are this level, probably not.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Romance can be very appealing especially if it is done with care not to make the characters filthy.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Coming Undone?

    The scenes may not be the problem, it was the language and wording in the tender moments that ruined it for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Not really, any author has the right to write at a level they want to, but a reader has a choice to not read the material too.

    Love is just an elevator ride away . . . Sofia isn’t exactly running away from love, but she has other priorities. Still, she can’t help but notice her new neighbor, Jamie, in the elevator every morning. Her first impression tells her he’s totally type-A and way too serious to be any fun at all. But try as she might, Sofia can’t deny that he’s tall, well-dressed, and handsome - and he smells so good. What Sofia doesn’t know is that Jamie’s been wondering about her, too. He can’t seem to get her out of his mind.

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

    I began listening to this book and just couldn't get into it.


    Has Thirty Postcards Away turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not really


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Whelan and Will Damron ?

    I really don't think it was so much any of the narration, just didn't like the story


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

    Really, bored with it

    Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams.

Together they'll go undercover to swindle and catch the world's most wanted - and untouchable - criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency.

    If you could sum up The Villa in three words, what would they be?

    Historical, romantic, memorable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Villa?

    I liked the way that dislike was turned into friendship, trust and love


    What about Laural Merlington’s performance did you like?

    Sometimes an author can make or break a story......this one was good!


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

    Gee......Expect the unexpected


    Any additional comments?

    I truly enjoy most of Nora Roberts books and so does my husband.....we like the bit of history in a story and are always looking for a story with a punch and a good ending.
    With so much violence, unrest, and economic times what they are, it is nice to get lost in a good story.

    What made the experience of listening to Jewels of the Sun the most enjoyable?

    I loved the story telling by the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jewels of the Sun?

    The evening walk that Jude and Aden take to his special spot and the story he tells.


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

    I believe this was my first time to hear her. I think her Irish accent was very well done. She did a fine job of emphasizing the individual parts. I felt like I was being drawn into the story.


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

    I'm not sure what a tag line is.


    Any additional comments?

    Not too often do I read a book over shortly after I have finished it, but this one had a very special feeling to it. I will probably listen to it again soon.
