    "Amazing"

    The Dark-Hunter series has been all I have heard from my wife for the past 3 years. Now I know why she loves it so much. Amazing read.

    "Greaaat!"
    If you could sum up Night Embrace in three words, what would they be?

    Vampiric steamy romance


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I personally just love the scale of Sherri's world. Seeing characters from her other novels make cameos and play into the current story is so freaking cool! Honestly, I am a fan of the steamy scenes, but I already really enjoy the humorous parts. There's a particular moment in which Talon gets into a naked situation he can't easily get out of...at least not without telling his friends.


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

    Yes, but because of life responsibilities it was over several days. Worth every second.

    "Fun story but painful for a NOLA native"

    The narrator had a lovely voice but to hear her butcher the local names was almost physically painful. when did Mardi Gras become a 3 syllable question?

    Story
    "Can he really save New Orleans?"

    Talon is an immortal that can only emerge from his home after dark. Sunshine is a human that loves the daylight. Can they merge their completely different lifestyles?

    Talon, thousands of years old, finds that he cannot leave Sunshine defenseless when his enemies target her. She is a bright light in his otherwise dark world and when they stay together for her protection, her inquisitive nature and gentle stubbornness frustrates and attracts him.

    Mardi Gras is coming and the enemy is out in full force hunting for Sunshine.

    Can he keep her safe while the enemies of the Dark-Hunters are determined to kill her?

    "LOVE THIS STORY"
    If you could sum up Night Embrace in three words, what would they be?

    ROMANTIC!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    Talon hes romantic and completely in love!


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

    She does a good job but not my favorite pick.


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

    Wouldn't make it a film.


    Any additional comments?

    Like most of her books at first I have a hard time getting into the characters, but towards the middle of the book I love them.

    I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.

    Story
    "Beauty tames the Beast"
    What made the experience of listening to Night Embrace the most enjoyable?

    I loved how the female lead was able to "tame" the male lead. She was able to bring him to the point where he could see how he could be loved and show him that he deserved to be loved.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    There were some pretty sexy scenes in the book


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

    I liked the narrator. An audio book allows me to multi-task


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

    All Sherrilyn Kenyon books give you that warm fuzzy feeling by the end of the book. I think that's why we read them


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. I am only a few short of reading them all. Unfortunately, I haven't listed to many. I hope to resolve this in the future.

    "Fantastic!"
    Would you listen to Night Embrace again? Why?

    Absolutely! The story line was great and the performance of the narrator was fantastic. I really enjoyed it.


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job bringing the characters to life. She kept the attitudes, voices, accents and dialects diverse. I could always tell which character she was speaking for and it made the book that more enjoyable.

    Story
    "The Fireworks are everywhere in this one!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Night Embrace to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love books, but hearing the story just helps to bring the characters to life in a way that reading alone does not always do. This narrator is excellent at drawing me in.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Embrace?

    The upstairs room when all H*** breaks loose! What action! Love it!


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    I like that the performance is seamless. He slid from male to female and from accent to accent without a hitch and without breaking my concentration on the story.


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

    All the moments between Talon and his sister, especially the last one.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series, and I have found myself owning both the books and the audiobooks. That takes a lot for me, so way to go Sherrilyn. I may be broke, but keep em coming!
