Dishonorably discharged, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin is down to his last ten bucks when he finally finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, a little-known and believed-to-be-fringe scientific research facility. When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

What did you like about this audiobook?

The story, plot and character development was well done. Shane and Mac are perfect together and Mac is a good ole fashion hero living in modern times.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I am always looking for new and different versions of scifi/fantasy love stories that maintain a good story despite the "love". Born to Darkness did this better than most!

Nicholas Argeneau was once a successful hunter who went after rogue vampires who broke the immortal law. Except no one has mentioned his name in the last fifty years, not since he turned into a rogue himself. But once a hunter, always a hunter. When Nicholas sees a bloodthirsty sucker terrifying a woman, it's second nature for him to come to her rescue. He had no idea he would also want to kiss her senseless.

What did you love best about The Renegade Hunter?

I loved the relationship that developed between Nicholas and Jo! Lynsay writes with such perfect detail and personality you really get to know and attached to the members of Argeneau family.

Any additional comments?

Lynsay Sands is an excellent writer and story teller! All characters are well developed and have such distinct personalities. I have read everything she has published and eagerly wait for more!

Roundhouse Publishing editor Kate C. Leever’s first letter to her newest legacy author was intended to impress upon him the growing demand for his “vampire romances.” Though he’d expressed little to no desire for publicity, book tours or the like, it was clear that this was a writer waiting to be broken out. Correspondence with Mr. Lucern Aregeneau tended to be oddly delayed, but this time his response was quick and succinct.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I really liked the story but the narrator really did not do the story any justice.

Would you recommend The Heat to your friends? Why or why not?

To read yes but not as an audible book.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator really didn't have the versatility necessary to depict the characters well or help the story come to life. Such a shame because it was a good story.

Did The Heat inspire you to do anything?

Pay closer attention to the narrators and listen to the samples before purchasing.

What did you love best about One Foot in the Grave?

Cat Crawford is a bad ass and the story line is fantastic!

What was one of the most memorable moments of One Foot in the Grave?

There is no one moment, rather it is how the moments weave throughout the story paired with the details of the interactions and events that makes this story and the series great and memorable. However, the constant bantering between Bones, Cat, Cat's mom along with the other characters was so much fun. I laughed out loud on several occasions. Actually Jeaniene does such a great jump bringing all the characters to life and the personalities are well established throughout the series. I really couldn't get enough of the story and didn't want it to end so much so that I ended up reading every book; including all the side stories. I felt a little loss when I had realized I had read them all.

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

She is an amazing performer who is able to give every character their own ORIGINAL voice that matches the personalities Jeaniene describes perfectly. She by far the best and has an amazing talent of bringing a book to life!!!!

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

Because Jeaniene and Tavia possess such talent and a perfect combination the reader is able to experience every emotion; the characters come to life with such depth you can't help but to experience their stories.

Rule #1: Never get involved with someone who won't be there for you when the sun comes up. Once bitten, twice shy, and sexy PI Jackie Morrisey wasn't going there again. Vincent Argeneau may be the hottest guy she's ever met, living or dead, but she's here to stop a killer from turning this vampire into dust, not to jump into bed with him.
