    If you could sum up Honeymoon Bite in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, awesome, true love story


    What did you like best about this story?

    A very different vampire story, lots of twist I didn't see coming and a HEA :D


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Many scenes caught my attention, but I think at the end where Marcus and Ann were in the vineyard is the happiest.


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

    Love is powerful and always wins!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the storyline, very different from any others in the vampire genre, the story didn't stop, no awkward or blah moments. It kept me listening waiting to find out what happened next. Very emotional, it was an emotional roller coaster ride. I laughed, I sure cried, I got mad too :D Loved the narrator's voice, I call it the chameleon voice. Doing all those accents, personalities and genders speaks of talent. Thank you for a great experience.

    Going undercover at a mass wedding as a bartered bride, Morrigan Blake has every intention of getting off the barbaric planet just as soon as it's over. Or, more correctly, just as soon as she captures footage of the mysterious princes rumored to be in attendance. After a euphoric night, Morrigan discovers her spaceship left without her, and Ualan of Draig is claiming she's his wife. It's not exactly the story this reporter had in mind.

    What did you love best about Barbarian Prince?

    I love that it has my fave shifters, dragons, and it is the reason I picked this up. Interesting mix of the futuristic and shifter with a medieval feel to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ualan of Draig is my fave character, the warrior with a tender heart. Even though Morrigan hurt him so many times, he is so good to her. I also loved the Queen.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My fave scene was almost at the end when they were in the closet and she is communicating with her editor.


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

    Not at the beginning, but as it went on, made me want to just sit and listen. to find out what is next. I listened while in the car, while cooking...


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to listen to more on the series with this narrator. Great voice. He did a wonderful job with Ualan and most other characters, but I feel that needed more emotion with Morrigan's voice especially in the love scenes. What she said and what she sounded like didn't quite match.

    There is no comparison, each book has it's own unique flavour, even in the SEAL Brotherhood Series.

    Yes, I did listen to all of his work for Sharon Hamilton. He has the ability to turn something great into awesome bringing something special to each book.


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

    Extreme? No. I went thru a whole range of emotions... laughter, tears, excitement, anger, fear

    Loved this book about Luke and his love, Julie. Very passionate tale of a man finding his soul mate who will help him heal.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Heavenly Lover to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I think adding JD's voice made a big difference for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heavenly Lover?

    Listening to Daniel after he found out that Claire is not human, heartbreaking.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My fave scene was where Daniel was reading to the children form the book he illustrated.


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

    Yes, I could not wait to go back to listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    A sweet, sweet story, very different from any I read in the fantasy angels genre. Daniel and Claire are made for each other, Josh was a great nemesis. I can't wait to listen to Underworld Lover.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Highland Fire?

    I think the end is memorable. It is a twist I didn't expect. Loved it.

    Definitely I would, because is a great story as usual by Ms. Hamilton and is narrated by the awesome voice of JD Hart.


    What other book might you compare SEAL of My Heart to and why?

    There are lots of books out there that have SEALs as main characters, including the ones in the series this is part of, but they are all different, there is no comparison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have many, but the one I burst out laughing was where they were in the donut shop and the kiss between Kenny and his girl was described: "... It sounded more like a toilet plunger..." Love it when the author throws these funny descriptions in.


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

    Love at first sight does exist!


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this and all the books in the series. I said it before and saying it again... the books were awesome when I read them, but listening to them narrated by THE VOICE of JD Hart brings them to life.

    I liked the whole story, action, comedy, suspense are mixed beautifully with passionate moments.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't pick one :D


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

    I think it was towards the end when Mark and Tyler were transporting the bomb away from the cruise ship, they were ready to selflessly sacrifice themselves to save so many and that brings to the forefront their courage and willingness to defend what they believed in, protect the innocent.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all the books narrated by JD Hart and the versatility of his voice amazes me every time, but this one I think is the best yet. All the accents are perfectly rendered, the mood of the characters come across clearly, the various characters of different gender and nationalities are well defined. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

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

    Definitely!!! I would recommend and I do recommend this book, this series, to anybody who like the vampire romance genre. Why? Because it is different in many ways, the Golden Vampires are able to walk in the sun, they have a strong family bond, they grow up human till they hit puberty when they have to choose between a mortal and immortal life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved all the characters, well shaped and written. Well, I didn't like Dag, he is nasty, but he was needed in the story.


    What about J. D. Hart’s performance did you like?

    I've listened to all his books he narrated so far and JD still amazes me, the way he changes his voice to suit each character, sometimes I think there is more then one person narrating it.


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

    I went thru many emotions listening to this book, I think the best part was at the end when Paolo and Cara finally fated... mmmm


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series to anyone and adding JD Hart's voice to it, I can promise hours of enjoyment. He brings the characters to life in such a way that you will not be able to stop listening.

When Findley McKenna returns after his battle with the English to offer Maggy Boyle a home amongst his clan, he finds only death and destruction instead of the young widow who has stolen his heart. The only things left of her home is the burned out hut and decaying bodies of the auld people Maggy has taken care of for the past three years. With only a prayer, his Highlander heart, and a bit of bloodied plaid to cling to, Findley will crawl through hell if he must, in order to find Maggy and her sons and avenge the massacre before him.

    I can actually visualize it better, at times I felt like I am in the same place where the characters were.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't pick just one, each of the characters has something I liked.


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

    Brad Wills voice brings the story and characters to life, the various voices, ages, genders, tones, temperaments are very well portrayed. Some places it felt like there are more than one person narrating it.


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

    Throughout the story, I laughed out loud, I cried, I sighed. There were quite a few scenes, the part where the wedding scene starts to unfold, the description of the warriors lining the walls was made vivid in my mind, made me want to be there, to experience it. My absolute favourite was near the end when Findley gets on his knee and makes his pledge to Maggie during their wedding. *sigh*


    Any additional comments?

    I am blown away by the talent of Brad Wills, just WOW !!!
    I am looking forward to listen to Wee William's Woman, my fave story in the series. Keep writing Ms. Tisdale and I'll keep reading and listening :D

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the whole story, the portrayal of a close bond between sister and brother, the close bond of a SEAL team, their 'no man is left behind' mentality makes me admire and love them more each time I read a story. The best part, as in each story written by Ms. Hamilton, is that love has the power to heal and the women in each SEAL's life is as strong as their men and in their own way support and strengthen them.


    Which character – as performed by J.D. Hart – was your favorite?

    I love each character narrated by J. D. Hart, his voice is amazing. Each time I listen to a book narrated by him I am amazed with the range of voices, the emotions, the personalities he can portray.


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

    I laughed out loud imagining the SEALs dancing and singing when they helped out at Sophie's nursery before the final sale day. I cried when Sophie died. There were a whole range of emotions throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend this series, amazing stories. Even though I know they are fictional characters, they seem so real and their life, their struggles, their strength & dedication is pouring of the pages. With J. D. Hart's voice they come to life.
