As the last unattached member of the Kelly clan, Joe is more than ready to risk life and limb on any mission he's assigned to, but when it comes to love, he'll keep his distance. He's content to watch his brothers become thoroughly domesticated. Zoe's had nothing but heartbreak in her life, and she's determined to start over with a completely new identity, thanks to her college friend Rusty Kelly. But it's the gorgeous smile and tender words of Joe Kelly that begin to weaken her resolve to never risk her heart again.

Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Tad Branson?

If this had been the first book I read by Maya Banks it would be the last. So not like her!

What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

The story was so week I almost missed it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Tad Branson’s performances?

He was OK.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Brighter Than the Sun?

All of Joe and Zoë talking to their self in side of their heads and not out loud. Which was 50% of the book. They both were pathetic.

Any additional comments?

The first KGI books are wonderful, good storyline and strong characters. I wish is had stopped with PJ and Cole's story. The books after that were week. This was the weakest one yet. I don't hold out much hope for the next ones. I put the blame the publishers, this book should have been sent back for a redo. Very disappointing read.

Former border agent Dalton Kirk thought his life was over - literally - when a gang of smugglers left him for dead. Defying all odds, he survives his ordeal and returns to his Wyoming ranch ready to dedicate his future to a more peaceful home on the range. Until lovely Merissa Baker knocks on his door. Merissa is well aware of her reputation as the local eccentric - she knows things before they happen - and she’s had a vision that Dalton is in danger.

What disappointed you about Wyoming Bold?

There is lecture after lecture in this book the only one not in the book was (Save the whales)...Come on you don't have to harp to get a point across and pick one or two per book it gets old after about... I lost count... and I'm going back to count...

Has Wyoming Bold turned you off from other books in this genre?

DP books yes. I have all her old book and I keep hoping she will come back but I've wasted to much money hoping, this is my last DP book !!!

Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

He has a nice Voice and he can bring a character to life. But they have to be there first, to be honest by the end of the book was hoping the killer would kill off the hero and heroin.

Any additional comments?

The Heroin's father... is a drug dealer But " A Prince among thieves" because he keeps his hands clean by using others to sale his drugs and kill... DP words from the book... REALLY!!!The last think I need to comment on is the on going trailer throughout the book about the next book. DP would have been better off putting more time working on this book and less with the next one. I was so disappointed.

Would you listen to Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels again? Why?

Yes I think I will.

What did you like best about this story?

It's so dark, but in a good way.

What about Eric G Dove’s performance did you like?

Eric G Dove is great... I will look for more of his books.

Any additional comments?

I see the next book is due out... So sad it looks like Eric G Dove is not going to be reading it. So I will have to stop at this book. Why mess with a good thing.

In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

If you could sum up Treachery In Death in three words, what would they be?

It is outstanding….

Which scene was your favorite?

When Dallas put her gun down and takes her on hand to hand...

Any additional comments?

Entire In Death books, this one is the best so far. Not that I’ve found a bad one. This book has all of Dallas's team working together and it also bring in people form other department and I love that. If this is your first In Death book it will make you want to go back and read them all... I'm hooked...

His mission: Night Wing. The revolutionary test plane with a top-secret weapons system was Colonel Joe "Breed" Mackenzie's #1 priority. And weapons expert Caroline Evans was his #1 distraction. True, the stubborn blonde was giving him the cold shoulder, but Joe hadn't become the best of the best by giving up. Then he discovered someone on the inside was sabotaging Night Wing, and with her late hours and specialized expertise, Caroline seemed the obvious choice.
