Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

I enjoy all of Molly Harper's books, this one especially. A different world than her vampires and werewolves, but still great fantasy. Highly recommend.

I enjoyed the story, but a note to narrator and production staff: the bloody song is from the Beatles! Listen and enjoy the story...The small errors are amusing rather than annoying.

The cold, precise Duke of Montford demands things his way: neatly ordered, in place, and adhering closely to the rules. So he is furious when he learns that the tenant of his ducal estate has been dead for a year, and a stranger has been running the Honeywell business - which, by contract, is now Montford's. When he arrives in Yorkshire to investigate, he discovers that the estate is being run by an unruly, tomboyish woman - and a bluestocking at that!

Paradise, Idaho, may not be the largest town, but for newly minted professor Zoe Santangelo, it's the first step on the path to her big break. After teaching in a small Idaho school, her next stop is the Ivy League, and no one is going to stand in her way. She'll do what it takes to move up, to protect her students from a creepy campus stalker - and to protect her heart from Cal Jackson, the hot, hunky cowboy who keeps coming to her rescue.

Major Connor MacKinnon despises his commander, Lord William Wentworth, beyond all other men. Ordered to rescue Wentworth's niece after the Shawnee take her captive, he expects Lady Sarah Woodville to be every bit as contemptible as her uncle. Instead, he finds a brave and beautiful lass in desperate peril. But the only way to free Sarah is for Connor to defeat the Shawnee warrior who kidnapped her - and claim her himself.

I loved reading Defiant, written by the very talented Pamela Clare. Kaleo Griffith brought this story to life by giving voice to the characters in this and the other MacKinnon's Rangers books...Surrender and Untamed. Both Pamela and Kaleo are gifted artists. I've eagerly waiting for Defiant in audio and it exceeded my expectations. Bravo Kaleo, brava Pamela.

Sparks fly when a hardboiled reporter meets a handsome senator. But a political scandal - and attempts on her life - could drive them apart. Or maybe adversity could draw them into a bond even more intense than their steamy sexual embraces.

If you haven't treated yourself to the best romantic suspense series that I've ever read, you are missing something really special. The I-Team is a group of investigative journalists for an independent Denver, Colorado newspaper. Extreme Exposure is the first book in the series. (Right now there are five books with a sixth due out May 2013). The book is a superb blend on action, suspense, romance and some really red-hot passion. I will NOT post spoilers about the story, but Kara is a talented single mom who works as a journalist, and Reece is a state senator. Their meeting is quite memorable...that is all I'm gonna say about that!

I am an audio book fan and feel it is important to match the book to the narrator. Kaleo Griffith is a relative new-comer in this field and has a great future ahead of him. He is an excellent actor, has a wonderful 'bedroom' voice, his female characters each have distinctive voices, accents and cadence of speech without the reader using a falsetto voice. It is easy to tell one character from another and it was not necessary to replay to figure out who is speaking.

The writing is great and the narration is some of the best I've heard. The audio version of book two in the series - Hard Evidence is due out on November 19th. I am a die-hard fan and cannot wait!

Three months ago, governess Serena Barton was let go from her position. Unable to find new work, she's demanding compensation from the man who got her sacked: a petty, selfish, swinish duke. But it's not the duke she fears. It's his merciless man of business - the man known as the Wolf of Clermont. The formidable former pugilist has a black reputation for handling all the duke's dirty business, and when the duke turns her case over to him, she doesn't stand a chance. But she can't stop trying....

What did you love best about The Governess Affair?

This is a truly wonderful love story. While not terribly long, it is so well written and read that it grabs you and you end up listening to it without pause.

What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

Ms Landor is a truly great narrator. She is clear, her characters are easy to distinguish from each other and the listener is instantly caught up in the story. Having read the book, it is a pleasure to listen to the story so well read that it exceeds the written version. Bravo!

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

Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson ( Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.
