    Grieving widow or black widow? The day Joan Medford buried her husband was a fateful one - because before the day was out she'd meet the two men who would change her life forever. Forced to take a job waitressing to support herself and her child, Joan finds herself caught between the handsome young schemer whose touch she comes to crave and the wealthy older man whose touch repels her…but who otherwise would make a tempting husband number two. It's a classic Cain triangle - brutal and sexual and stark - that can only end in death. But for whom, the guilty…or the innocent?

    probably not


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

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

    The way she read was kind of monatone - which added to the mystery of the story. I liked the was she narrated it.

    yes

  • Succubus Shadows: Georgina Kincaid, Book 5

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 3 mins)

    Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals - all child's play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding is a different story. Georgina isn't sure which is worse - that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Succubus Shadows to be better than the print version?

    i'm writing about all six books - and yes i think the audio is better than the written because the narrator was excellent


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Succubus Shadows?

    i can't say there was any one memorable moment - i loved this whole series.


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

    humor, excitement always looking forward to more - very hard to put down or in this case listen to.


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

    not sure


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this series so much and the narrator - that it was one of those stores you hated to see come to an end. loved it that much. I could listen to this narrator all time. She has a very clear voice not hard to hear.
