I've come to Seven Gates Cemetery nursing a broken heart, but peace is hard to come by, for the ghosts here and for me. When the body of a young woman is discovered in a caged grave, I know that I've been summoned for a reason. Only I can unmask her killer. I want to trust the detective assigned to the case, for he is a ghost seer like me. But how can I put my faith in anyone when supernatural forces are manipulating my every thought?

If you could sum up The Sinner in three words, what would they be?

Another fantastic addition to The Graveyard Queen series.

Any additional comments?

Amanda Stevens managed to do it again, i am seriously addicted to this series. I cant wait for the next one, which is also the last one! It is difficult to imagine, but The Sinner is even more creepy then the previous books and the end will leave you stunned and gasping for more ; ) The narrator is perfect, i dont think they could have found someone else to do the job better. Awesome!

Rachel Connery is on a seek-and-destroy mission, out for revenge against the mysterious, charismatic man who enticed millions of dollars from her dying mother and cheated Rachel out of her inheritance. She wants retribution and is willing to use every seductive trick at her disposal to obtain it. But desire is a dangerous weapon that cuts both ways, and her trap could end up catching her in a nightmare of forbidden feelings.

Where does Ritual Sins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best and I am an audiobook junky.

What other book might you compare Ritual Sins to and why?

Anne' s heroes are always wicked, dangerous and slightly damaged, but Luke has a category of his own...enough said. I dont think i can compare this book to any other book and i dont want to ; )

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Everything, she did the perfect job...especially Luke' s voice.

Any additional comments?

Loved it...i loved this book since i read it the first time, but remaking it in the audio version really took it to new heights. If you like your hero dark and dangerous and heroine that can give as good as she gets you will love Ritual Sins. Highly recommended!

The plan was for beautiful Claire to marry the terrifyingly sinister Simon of Navarre, wizard in residence to Richard the Fair. Instead, her plain sister, Alys, takes her place, proving herself more than a match for the man with the secrets. Meanwhile, sweet Claire falls in love with a handsome knight, and the truly evil Richard the Fair tries to make life miserable for all.

Where does Lord of Danger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is without a doubt one of my favourite stories of this genre. This book was the first Anne Stuart's books i have ever read and it got me hooked. I love the story and its characters. Simon is a wonderful hero...dark, dangerous, wicked...yum ; ) I also really liked Alys...strong and clever and not annoying at all (often a problem with so many heroines in other romances). Alys' sister Clair is a bit obnoxious, but she suppose to be that. Her romance with Thomas is very sweet and makes a nice contrast to much more intense and special connection that Simon and Alys share. The only thing that i have a little complain about is the abrupt ending...but that just because this couple is so wonderful together that i want to know more about them ; )

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lord of Danger?

When Simon secretly came to visit Alys while she is transported in the cage. I could feel his despair and longing....wow...; )

What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

Everything, she did a fantastic job...just perfect. But i knew that after her performance with The House of Rohan. I always believed that from all the narrators of Anne Stuart's books she is the best.

Any additional comments?

Very happy that it finally happen and awaiting Ritual Sins next month...yay!

After a loveless arranged marriage, Julianna plans to join a convent. Yet she finds herself in wickedly provocative conversation with, of all men, the king's mocking, ribald "wedding present" to the Earl. Nicholas - the jester, the fool, and a mere commoner who immediately decides to seduce her while procuring the chalice for King Henry.

Would you listen to Lady Fortune again? Why?

I probably would, but only because i love the story. I listened to the sample before i bought it and it took me a few weeks to finally relent and purchase it...i mean its Anne Stuart. I was also hoping that the narration would improve further in the book...it didnt. I dont regret it though...Anne's stories are addictive and her audiobooks are like a new fix ; )

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Fortune?

Dont have one memorable moment, but have memorable characters instead. I love Nicholas...i mean who wouldnt even if he is not the typical medieval knight or a sorcerer, but the king's fool. That was unexpected and fun. Julianna is also a great character and their love story delightful. The secondary romance involving Julianna's mother was also interesting.

How could the performance have been better?

By changing the narrator. Susan Ericksen would be perfect (Rohan series was her absolute masterpiece). I am not trying to be unkind but, actually anyone would be better then this lady. Her style of reading just dont go together with Anne's stories.

Any additional comments?

Waiting for Lord of Danger audiobook with bated breath ; )
