On her first visit to Clan Stonefire, Department of Dragon Affairs inspector Evie Marshall has an ulterior motive - she needs to seduce its clan leader. If she can't seduce him and become his mate, the dragon hunters will kill her. Of course, Evie doesn't know the first thing about seducing a man, let alone a dragon-shifter, but with her life on the line, she's going to have to become a fast learner or die trying.

Would you listen to Seducing the Dragon again? Why?

Most definitely. Jessie Donovan's stories are wonderful and I can read and listen to them over and over again.

What other book might you compare Seducing the Dragon to and why?

In my opinion, there are really no other books that compare to this book. Jessie Donovan has a unique way of telling her stories and I find that they don't really follow the mold of other dragon shifter books.

What about Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performance did you like?

He is awesome, in the way he reads the stories and the different voices he makes for the different characters. Even his scottish accent is really good.

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

I loved the plunger scene. I won't say more as it will spoil the scene, but it was hilarious.

In exchange for a vial of dragon's blood to save her brother's life, Melanie Hall offers herself up as a sacrifice to one of the British dragon-shifter clans. Being a sacrifice means signing a contract to live with the dragon-shifters for six months to try to conceive a child. Her assigned dragonman, however, is anything but easy. He's tall, broody, and alpha to the core. There's only one problem - he hates humans.

Would you consider the audio edition of Sacrificed to the Dragon to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed both versions of the story. The audio version just put the voices to the characters and was fun to listen to.

What other book might you compare Sacrificed to the Dragon to and why?

I'm not sure there really is any stories that would compare with this one.

Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I found him to e a great narrator.

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

If I could have listened to it all at once I probably would have listened to it that way.

Any additional comments?

Jessie Donovan is great author and she really did a great job with picking the narrator for this story. The narrator just made the story that much better.

If you could sum up Stolen and Forgiven in three words, what would they be?

Captivating, Enthralling, and Exciting

What other book might you compare Stolen and Forgiven to and why?

This book is unique as the authors take you to a place where the shifters are out in the open and yet hidden from humans

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

The story almost takes on a life of its own when you listen to the someone else reading the book.

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

This book has made me laugh so many times while I was driving my car that people must have thought I was crazy.

Any additional comments?

The only thing I would find fault with the narrator for is his pronunciation of the word heady. To me the word the way he said it was wrong.

Would you listen to Finally Found You again? Why?

Yes, It was a fun and interesting story. I had just finished reading the story and was gifted this audiobook for an Honest review. It was different listening to the story being read to me rather than me reading it as I tend to skip things when I am reading and actually heard them being read to me.

What did you like best about this story?

The story line was right in line with the rest of the series.

What about Gregory Salinas’s performance did you like?

He was amusing with the expression I could hear in his voice

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

yes, I listened to the book in one sitting as I was doing laundry.

Any additional comments?

I love Carrie Ann's books and I enjoyed being able to review for her.
