If you could sum up Jericho in three words, what would they be?

funny, heart stopping, anxiety

What other book might you compare Jericho to, and why?

i cant seem to find any other book to compare this one to for some reason.

Which character – as performed by Christine Williams – was your favourite?

I loved Maddie. She is so funny, determined and loving. i love the way how she stuck to not making a move on a straight woman as she didn't want to scare Sid off. Even when Sid finally made a move she was determined not to rush anything.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

drive a woman crazy

Any additional comments?

must say this book had me cursing morning noon and night. I was on edge waiting to see when the hell one of them would make a move.

The only thing that frightens shapeshifter Selene Rhodes more than the full moon is the idea of falling in love. Selene Rhodes has lived her whole life with a terrible secret: not only can she take the form of any animal at will, but once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-creature without a human conscience. Managing her condition means living by a strict routine, and more importantly, abstaining from intimate relationships with human beings.

Where does Wild rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its right next to the honor series. Its been a while i have enjoyed a book that was not written by Radclyffe. I loved every moment of this book, couldn't get enough.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wild?

I think it was when Eve brought cake to Selene's house to thank her for saving her from that psycho and they fell into bed over and over again.

Have you listened to any of Alexandria Wilde’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I swear Ms. Wilde sounds really like Abby Craden I dont know why. I absolutely love Abby and I enjoyed Ms. Wilde's performance as well.

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

Yes, when Eve was the house when the call girl arrived and Selene couldn't tell her what was really going on. I think I cried when they both were crying knowing how much it hurt Selene, not telling the truth and how much it hurt Eve not knowing the truth,

Any additional comments?

I was really hoping this book had a follow up or better yet a few more sequels to this story. The story has ended and now I dont have anything else to listen...oh well.

Emily Parker has a busy life over which she maintains iron-clad control. Raised by drug-addicted parents, she’s used to taking care of the people around her, to the exclusion of her own needs. But not tonight. After years of celibacy, she’s ready to pay for exactly what she wants: to surrender control, by having it taken away. Having worked as a high-priced escort for years, Nat Swayne not only enjoys her job - she’s damn good at it.

What made the experience of listening to The Night Off the most enjoyable?

every single word spoken, every movement made, my skin was on fire. Emily and Nat were amazing in and out of the bedroom. I must admit, I tried listening to the book at work and I had to stop, waited until I got home. The book was just full of too mush action for my poor body.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Night Off?

There are so much but I really loved when they were at the restaurant and Nat was attacking Emily's body under the table while the waitress went and came to them. Poor Emily had to sit and take it without a sound so not to awaken anyone's suspicion.

Have you listened to any of Alexandria Wilde’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first book by her. Surprisingly she sounds a great deal like Abby Craden whom I love listening to dearly so it was a great first listen. Looking forward to more of her works.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I couldn't stop listening to the book, i didn't go to bed until i had finished the book. Really wanted to know what Emily would have done to get back Nat and it was worth it.

If you could sum up The Magic Hunt in three words, what would they be?

intense, fierce and passionate

What did you like best about this story?

it was most enjoying to see couples getting together who were not in the same clan. Wolf and vampire!Fay and wolf! I really love Sylvan's nature to protect her mate and wolves. this book in the series was especially enjoyable because of the amount of the fights that took place.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

the battle with Sylvan, Bernado and the vampires for her wolf. it was so intense, i didn't even realise i was holding my breathe and until Silvan won. I was so afraid that Francesca would have killed Sylvan

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

When Sylvan and her clan won each battle I celebrated. The sex scenes were unimaginable, they were too intense especially when it came to Cattia and Michell, Francesca and Michell

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to the next book in the series. I want to see if Francesca will ever meet Sylvan in battle

What made the experience of listening to Justice for All the most enjoyable?

the build up to the end was an experience in itself. it was indeed enjoyable!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

my favorite characters were the spouses, Catherine, Micheal and Sandy. The hold that they have on their partners are somewhat so unbelievable.

What does Betsy Zajko bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

she brings out every emotion being portrayed by the characters better than if i was reading the physical book

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

in each of the books in the series, I pretty much cried every time one of the characters ended up in the hospital and their partner had to go through the ordeal. When Sandy got injured and Dell wouldn't let go of her in the car was really touching. that entire scene was really intense

Any additional comments?

When I started this book I knew it was the last one in the series so I tried to not listen to it as I didn't want it to end but I really needed to know how it ended. I wasn't really excited about the ending but I really am happy that they caught some of the bad men who were using and abusing those young girls

Would you consider the audio edition of A Matter of Trust to be better than the print version?

never read the print version

What other book might you compare A Matter of Trust to, and why?

It comes close to the Honor series but this is only the first book in the series so who knows if it will get better or not. Both series has similar circumstances than bring each women together and in the end the same results

What about Betsy Zajko’s performance did you like?

I really liked her voice and her emotions between the two women. Great performance!!!

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

I was smiling a lot so although there were times when I really felt it for JT fighting her demons and straining to stay away from a woman knows nothing about being with another woman.

Any additional comments?

i really do love Radclyffe's books, i find all of them to be quite ravishing an exciting.

With a relentless TV lawyer and public mob still out for Lillian Linden-Smith's blood for crimes committed by her "American royalty" parents, getting out of the country is her only hope for anonymity. If that means cleaning up and presenting an antisocial know-it-all Ph.D. for bookstores, clubs and lectures, fine. Dr. Hathaway may have succeeded in driving away all the others, but not this time. From their first meeting the sparks fly, and each is thinking: She has no idea who she's dealing with.
