    Killian O'Neal has a plan. The governor's son, Neith, has been enslaved in a high-end brothel. Killian's going to break him out, take him home and collect a reward. It's a daring mercenary rescue. What could go wrong? A lot, as it turns out. The governor doesn't want his son back, the ship and crew are on the run from the slavers, and Neith is in withdrawal from a drug that instills in him a desperate lust. A passionate heat flares between Killian and Neith - but is it just the effects of the drugs still in Neith's system, or could it be something more permanent?

    Book 2 of the series and I enjoyed following the characters first met in Book 1. Another outstanding performance from narrator, Jack Lefleur, one of my most favourite narrators.

    William Drake’s living an ordinary life - he has a job, a dog, and a house near Lake Superior - when a frantic call for help from his ne'er-do-well sister, Katrina, throws a big rancher-shaped kink in the works. Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, Will’s arrival at the Montana ranch belonging to Katrina's fiancé, Martin, is marked by a flat tire and unexpected help from a tall, dark, and handsome Good Samaritan. The stranger turns out to be Elijah Hunter, Martin's brother - the most unsettling man Will has ever met.

    The story coulda/shoulda been good. The narration of this book was SO bad, I couldn't make it all the way through, I had to turn it off about 1/2 way. It was extremely difficult to tell which character was speaking at times. At other times, the stilted halting delivery was frustrating at best. There appears to be an issue with tense, in particular the word "ask". He ask, she ask....no, they did not... he ASKED, she ASKED. It started out as a minor annoyance, but by halfway through it was every instance and ended up being all I heard.
    Apparently the words "emphatic" and "empathetic" are now interchangable as well.
    I will not buy another book with this narrator. I would rather buy the book for my ereader and read it myself! Extremely disappointing, if this would allow me to give NO stars to performance I would have done that.

    Mercenary Captain Torin Covell needs a man who knows his way around a cockpit. Ace pilot Rain needs to get the hell off-planet. Thrown together by chance, the two men form a wary partnership. Torin has every intention of dumping Rain at the next moon, despite his intense attraction to the hotshot. In his line of work he can't afford to trust anyone, especially someone as infuriatingly charming and naive as Rain. But first, he's got a mission to complete.

    What Rain wants, Rain gets. And what he wants is Torin, any way he can get him.

    Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core - and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

    Sergei Stolkov is a faithful officer, though his deepest desires go against the Doctrine. A captain with the invading Coalition forces, he believes that self-sacrifice is the most heroic act, and his own needs are only valid if they serve the state. Mike, an operative planted within Cirokko's rebels, has been ordered to seduce Sergei and pry from him the Coalition's military secrets. His mission is a success, but as he captures Sergei's heart, Mike is tempted by his own charade and falls in love.

    Really good story, keeps you interested right to the end. The narrator, Jack LeFleur, was superb...going at just the right pace, you could tell the characters apart, and he has a wry sometimes sarcastic tone that really benefits the story. He announces the chapters so you know where you are and reads at just the right pace. I will be looking for other books with this narrator because he was so good.

    One of the best books I've listened to in quite a while. Lots of great story and fantastic ideas. I found it so good that I listened to the whole 11 hour story with only a short break. Kept me interested right to the end, and was able to evoke a very emotional reaction...both by story and the way it was narrated...unusual in today's writings. The narrator, Paul Morey, was superb! I will look for other books with this narrator!

    Really looked forward to this second book in the tri-book series. Again, enjoyed the story very much, but would have preferred that the performance was done with original narrator, Sean Crisden. Eagerly awaiting third book, Honored Vow, in the series....really hoping author will go back to Sean Crisden to narrate.

    Max Shannon is a good cop, one of the best in New York Enforcement. Born with a natural shield that protects him against Psy mental invasions, he knows he has little chance of advancement within the Psy-dominated power structure. The last case he expects to be assigned is that of a murderer targeting a Psy Councilor's closest advisors. And the last woman he expects to compel him in the most sensual of ways is a Psy on the verge of a catastrophic mental fracture.

    It's not easy being a girl. It's even harder when you're the only girl in a family of werewolves. But it's next to impossible when your very existence spells out the doom of your race.... Meet Jessica McClain - she just became part of the pack. In the vein of Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs, a new urban fantasy that rewrites the werewolf myth....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd like to for the story, it had promise...but probably not. Truly barely made it thru the whole thing myself because of the poor and irritating narration. Couple of times was very close to just quitting listening, but hate to get into a story just to quit it.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Was so relieved to reach the end of the annoying narration, that I really didn't pay a whole lot of attention to ending, except for the "not-quite finished, please read the next book" type of ending.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Casey Holloway’s performances?

    NO. Until this narrator either grows up into her voice, and improves the robotic stilted quality, improving tremendously or the writer uses another narrator, I will not buy any more of this series, nor any other book where she is listed as narrator. Sorry, but much MUCH more practice is needed before going live again.


    Do you think Full Blooded needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, it didn't end with any kind of finality. However, I will not buy a follow-up book if the author keeps this narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    very disappointed all told.

    Stefan Joss just can't win. Not only does he have to go to Texas in the middle of summer to be the man of honor in his best friend Charlotte's wedding, but he's expected to negotiate a million-dollar business deal at the same time. Worst of all, he’s thrown for a loop when he arrives to see the one man Charlotte promised wouldn’t be there: her brother, Rand Holloway.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Timing (Gay Romance) to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Timing (Gay Romance)?

    The interplay between Stefan and Charlotte really works to boost the main story going on between Stefan and Rand.


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

    This one is great. Really like the narrator and his quirky sarcasm. I enjoyed the way he balances the characters with one another.


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

    Yes..... and did!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first book of Mary Calmes that I ever read, and it made me go look for the rest!!
