Petite, kind, brilliant, and young, Stevie is nothing like the usual women in whom bodyguard Shen Li is interested. The youngest of the lethal, ball-busting, and beautiful MacKilligan sisters loves pandas. Shen is a giant panda shifter, which means that Stevie won't stop cuddling him. But Stevie has a way of finding trouble. Like going undercover to take down a scientist experimenting on other shifters. For what, Shen doesn't want to know, but they'd better find out. And fast.

What a thoroughly entertaining read with enough action, drama, and a bit of romance that held my attention to the point of not being able to stop listening . The narrator, Charlotte Kane , is one of my favorite narrators and helps to bring this story to life for me. Well done Shelly Laurenston!

But when he runs into her at a wedding eight years after their tumultuous break-up, passions ignite and Alexei decides he will settle for nothing less than red-hot, dirty, and oh-so-erotic revenge. Can he have his Eva and get his revenge, too - without losing his heart again?

What made the experience of listening to Her Russian Billionaire the most enjoyable?

What a wonderful story of finding loving, losing love, and finding love again. Eva and Alexei knew their bond was special but life and family still got in the way. Fast forward years later, and family secrets, misunderstandings, and misinformation is still trying to keep them apart, Can these two put everything aside and forgive each other to finally make it work this time? I truly love this couple and their journey back to each other. Let's face it Alexei wasn't an easy man to love, but Eva saw past his tough exterior to his softer side. Their story was just a joy to read and I gave it 5 stars.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Her Russian Billionaire?

The most memorable moment was when Alexei realized the secret that Eva had been hiding from and how he reacted to the life changing moment of truth.

Which character – as performed by Clementine Dove – was your favorite?

I love how Clementine performed all of the characters, but she just made Eva coma alive for me.

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

There were times when I was so angry with both Eva and Alexei when they were playing games with each other trying to prove who was the most stubborn. They made me want to yell at them both.

One of the few white kids in a rural Kentucky town, Logan Whyte always kept to his own kind out of self-preservation. He never considered himself racist, but that didn't stop him from falling in with the wrong crowd--one that celebrated hate as much as he fought it--or from ending up in prison for eight years on an armed-robbery charge.

What did you love best about Incarcerated?

Katie and Logan were both looking for someone to alleviate their feelings of loneliness, and what better way than to find a pen pal. These two talk anonymously for awhile getting to know each other making each other feel I lot less lonely. They both feel that they have finally found someone special, someone who really understands them. until the truth comes out and they realize they really didn't know each other at all.
What would you do if you fell in love with someone only to find out that the person you thought they were couldn't be more further from the truth? That's exactly what happened to Katie and Logan. This was a story about finding out what really matters to you where love is involved, how you can think you know yourself until life comes along and shows you how wrong you are and that there's always something new to learn about yourself. True love know no color and for me is what Incarcerated is about. I loved it and give this one 4.5 stars!

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Katie. Through out the story you get to see her evolve into a strong individual who decides that she will finally take a stand and live her life for herself and not for others.

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

Olivia did a great job of making the story come to life for me.

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

This book was an emotional read that made me cry, scream, and in the end swoon for this couple.

Would you consider the audio edition of Inevitable: Love and War to be better than the print version?

I read the book before listening to the audio and I have to the audio version was very entertaining. Teal and Trent's personalities clashed from the moment they met, only to find out later that they were more alike than different. This led to a a fiery passion between the two of them that became harder to ignore the closer they became.

What did you like best about this story?

My favorite scene was when Trent and Teal could no longer deny the chemistry that was sizzling between them.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I enjoyed the narrator, although sometimes I think her performance of Logan and Trent was a little to overacting as far as the southern accent.went.

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

First impressions are not always the best impressions.

Two weeks of vacation with her man? Hell yeah, that is exactly what Teal Lofton's libido needs. And after surviving seven months apart, their reunion doesn't disappoint. What she didn't account for was an unfortunate encounter with people from Trent's past. A racist, a druggie, and a double-barreled shotgun, culminate into a vacation that will alter the course of her life forever.

Would you consider the audio edition of Indelible: Beneath His Ink to be better than the print version?

What a wonderful love story about two people who couldn't be more opposite from each other. Teal and Trent are from to different worlds, but when their paths cross neither would have suspected that they would have an attraction that would be so undeniable. Although I'm sure the print version is great, having had the opportunity to listen to the audio version made the story that much more enjoyable. I loved the narrator, he just made the story jump from the pages.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I just loved the strength that Teal showed. She knew when to be a rock and when to show her vulnerable side and lean on her man.

Which character – as performed by Michael Pauley – was your favorite?

Michael Paul gave a wonderful performance as Trent allowing his true emotions to shine through.

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

The most touching scene between Teal and Trent for me was the hospital scene when Trent finally proposed to Teal. It was a very beautiful and touching scene.

Some of the most beautiful people in the world are not human. They have no souls, feel no emotion, and are pure evil. You can tell by the color of their dark, dead eyes. Samuel Glaus knows this. He is the son of a human mother and soulless father. He is, after all, half human and a hunter of the soulless. He is also in love with one who cannot love him back.

While trying to figure out the mystery behind Nikki's abduction these to perfect strangers find that they are actually better together than they ever were apart. I love how Veil became very protective over Nikki without knowing exactly why he felt that way. Nikki's trust in Veil to keep her safe no matter the circumstances created a bond between the two them that was very heartwarming for me. Also, I loved the narrator of this story. Todd Van Linda makes for a wonderful storyteller. This story had all, mystery, drama, romance, betrayal. All the elements that make for a great story. I look forward to seeing what's up next for these two there's bound to be more drama in their future. Yes, it ends in a cliffhanger.

The most memorable moment was Nikki proved she was more than just a pretty face, that she would fight along side her guards.

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

The most emotional part of the story for me was when Veil though that he and Nikki were making love for the last time. You could feel the anguish he was going through.
