    He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty.

    Circenn, loved the accent.

    Both. It is a very emotional story, especially when Lisa got her family back.

    The USA Today best-selling author of You Slay Me, Katie MacAlister is a resounding hit with fans who find her vivacious heroine, Aisling Grey, one hot ticket. After making some amusing on-the-job blunders, Aisling squirms out of a sticky situation using her powers as a Keeper to the Gates of Hell. As if her list of new duties wasn't already a drag, she's got to keep her career as a courier on track - and lately things haven't quite gelled on that front either.

    If you could sum up Fire Me Up in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, Funny, Sweet


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire Me Up?

    When Drake agreed to give up the sept to save Aisling and admitted he loved her.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    If I had to pick one, I would choose Jim. You have to love the character, even if it sometimes can make you want to send it to "Abaddon." I also loved Drake because I am half Hungarian and love his voice and mannerisms.


    If you could rename Fire Me Up, what would you call it?

    The title suits the dragon theme. Leave it alone.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series. I hope there are more books that include Drake and Aisling.

    Phillip's brothers, Cameron and Ethan, are now happily married. The family boat-building business is starting to thrive. And the Quinns are closer than ever to keeping Seth permanently protected from his errant mother who would sell her own son rather than loving him the way the Quinns do.

    Story
    What did you love best about Inner Harbor?

    I first read the story of the Quinn's a few years ago. I wanted to hear Philip's story on audio to decide whether to buy the other books. I have never visited the Chesapeake Bay area, but the book makes you feel like you would love to live there.


    What other book might you compare Inner Harbor to and why?

    All the Quinn books are great and I would relate them to many of Nora Roberts series' books. They are easy to read and pulls you in to the story. If I would compare this book to another author, I would say either Catherine Coulter or Suzanne Brockmann.


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

    The narrator was good. He was very fluent and was confident in his speaking. It would have been better if they had added a female narrator for the ladies' voices. It would have made listening more memorable.


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

    On a weekend day, I would like to sit back and listen. Otherwise, I would take it a chapter at a time.

    Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Kiss of the Highlander the most enjoyable?

    The story was well thought out and the characters were believable. The ending of the book made me want to read the next book in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all the characters, especially Drustan and Dageus. Gwen was my favorite female character and I look forward to reading about her again.


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

    Hearing it read with a Scottish accent made it seem like you were there in the story.


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

    Time permitting, I would listen to it and have my book open at the same time. It makes it easier to visualize the action. It is not as great as watching it as a movie, but it is still memorable.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book needs to employ both a male and a female narrator. Most women can't sound like men and most men can't sound like women, so partner up. That it why I can't give the performance 5 stars. Phil has a great voice for the male voices, but a woman needs to read the female dialogue. It sounds more believable and it will sell more books. I know I would buy more if the change would be made.

    Jessi St. James has got to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the hardworking archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six-and-a-half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male.

    Would you listen to Spell of the Highlander again? Why?

    Yes. I love the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spell of the Highlander?

    When Cian threw the mirror down the stairs, knowing that it would break and that he would die. What a sacrifice! Thank you for allowing him to live.


    What about Phil Gigante’s performance did you like?

    I love the Scottish accent.


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

    When Cian was yelling at Dageus to go find Jessica, who had been left behind, it really showed how much Cian loved her. It also reminded Dageus how much he loved Chloe. It was a very emotional moment.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be great if they could redo the audio book with a female narrator and a male narrator. I love Phil, but adding a real female would make the feminine characters sound believable.

    From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A 16th-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the 13 Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit. When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure.

    What other book might you compare The Dark Highlander to and why?


    I would compare Dark Highlander to any of the other Highlander books in the Moning series. I wish they could make them into a movie.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    1. Chloe defending herself from Giles. 2. Dageus saving Chloe from Simon and the Draghar by sacrificing himself.3. Chloe and Dageus reunion at the end. Wish there had been a reunion with Drustan and Gwen.4. Silvan and Nellie's "wedding."So many more........


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

    Both. Extremely exciting.


    Any additional comments?

    My only negative about the audio version is that I wish that there had been a female narrator, too. I have nothing against Phil, but it would be easier to listen to a book when you have a real female voice to offset the male, especially in a romance story. This goes for all audio books with both male and female characters.A good example of this is the audio book by Christine Feehan, Dark Slayer. I would buy it in an instant because there are both a male and female narrator. It was great!Think about it.
