“Vampires...” When Raffaele Notte pulls a barely dressed, disoriented woman from the ocean, the last thing he expects is for her to utter that word. The immortal has come to the island resort to help his cousin, but now, it seems, there are rogue vampires dining on unsuspecting tourists. And he soon realizes that not only is Jess a target, she’s also the life mate for whom he’s been waiting....

I enjoy this series but the narrator was not enjoyable to listen. Keep trying to find the right voice.

I have a secret. I don’t want people to know me as Eleanor the billionaire. Or Eleanor the crime boss’ ex-wife. But Hunter’s crystal green eyes behind those glasses, his hard body cut like diamonds, makes me want to become Eleanor the cougar. Purr… Hunter just became the hunted. I will show him what a woman in her prime can really do. But will my past and secrets catch up to me before I find my happiness?

Narrator was terrible, very robotic. Repetitions throughout. Unprofessionally done. Too expensive for the quality. Worthless.

  • The Werewolf Meets His Match

Getting arrested wasn't on werewolf Ivy Kincaid's agenda when she arrived in Nocturne Falls, but her life rarely goes according to plan. The upside of spending the night in the local lock-up is finding a hotel room is no longer a worry...but the downside is the man she's come to marry will get his first impression of her behind bars. That's not exactly the way Ivy was hoping to meet her pack's sworn enemy...aka her fiancé.

I really enjoyed listening to Narrator. I really enjoy his female interpretations as well. I love the series and am looking forward to continue listening to the other books.

Gabrielle has had enough of battles, of wars, of seeing the man she's engaged to nearly lose his life when it isn't even his fight. Once Gary was a gentle and very human researcher. Now he's a fearless and lethal Carpathian warrior with the blood of an ancient lineage coursing through his veins - a man Gabrielle still needs and dreams of with every breath she takes.

I am going back to reading this series. The actors are "over the top". I don't enjoy the stories as much anymore.

It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

Would you try another book from Lynsay Sands and/or Victoria McGee?

I would try another book only because I love the author's work. The Narrator's voice is computer-like (unnatural) and makes the story sound cheesy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Greg and Margarite. Greg, for being the normal human with his rationalizations until he learns the truth. Margarite because she is the all-knowing, powerful and loving matriarch.

How could the performance have been better?

A better Narrator. Even with a better Narrator the choppy editing would be forgivable.

Could you see A Quick Bite being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes, I could see the Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series made into a TV series. The stars would have to be young and physically beautiful but good actors in order to be successful. The Vampire Diaries have had success because of the qualities I mentioned but in this series they would have to be comedic actors.
