As the vampire princess of the Night Court, it’s my duty to choose my prince from four human men, willing to be mine.

All I have to do is choose one to crown.

I never expected to fall in love.

Not with one.

Certainly not with all of them.

Do I abandon my destiny in order to keep my men, or do I risk it all and rewrite the rules?

Harlow Thomas loves reading and writing steamy romance about sexy men who love the same woman. Why choose when you can have them all?

Did you find it difficult to “break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?  

  •  Once I found ACX it was all relatively easy for me because I had a place to audition, however ignorance was bliss because not knowing the reality about the full industry and only seeing a portion of it when I began, shielded me from feeling overwhelmed.

What type of training have you undergone?

  • I book time with two coaches, Sean Pratt and Andi Arndt – they are AMAZING and insightful and I always leave a session with either of them motivated and encouraged.

How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?

  • Listening to some of my favorite narrators and reading new work from my favorite authors!  I am on a few ARC teams and those authors keep me motivated because I see how many wonderful books are coming out and it just makes me want to narrate them, which gets and keeps me going!

What types of things are harmful to your voice?

  • Unfortunately coffee, espresso type drinks, you know the ones I love and live for!

Do you read reviews for your audiobooks?

  • I do try occasionally to look through the reviews to see if there is something there that is being said consistently enough that would warrant me to initiate a change, but overall I look at the ratings most, rather than what is actually said.  

If so, which ones stand out to you most, positive or negative?

  • would like to think that the positive stand out the most, however, occasionally a negative one can get under my skin if it’s written in a manner that is more of an attack than a review, I don’t mind critique or constructive criticism, I like those because they give me something to work with, but when they get to be just mean those suck.

Who is your “dream author” that you would like to record for?

  •  Kennedy Ryan, hands down!

If you could narrate one book from your youth what would it be and why?

  • I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

What bits of advice would you give to aspiring audiobook narrators?  

  • Find a teacher, mentor or coach and study! Practice, practice and practice some more.

What’s next for you?  

  • So much!  I do have some secret project coming up that when they are complete they will come out of nowhere and hopefully pleasantly surprise those authors fans!  But I have my first duet narrations coming out soon Royal Love and Royal Affair by Cristiane Serruya with co-narrator Logan McAllister.

Story: 4

Narration: 4

Overall: 4

I listened to the audiobook version of this book, which has also been released as several smaller books. The switch from boot to book was seamless and the characters penned by Harlow Thomas were interesting, with the main characters being well fleshed out. The world building was reasonably well done, but at times I felt a little confused about where things were taking place.
As is typical with reverse harem stories there is a lot of sex, it is quite explicit but that is to be expected with a reverse harem, so this is definitely an adults only book.
With plenty of twists and turns, suspense and action and an interesting plot this was an enjoyable listen.

Lacy Laurel’s narration was clear and pleasant to listen to and she maintained a good flow to her narration. I do feel this was more narration than voice acting and there is nothing wrong with that, in fact I preferred it for this book. It was always made clear by the writing who was talking and the intensity of situations. Sometimes with erotic audiobooks the narration can sound a little uncomfortable but Lacy narrated those scenes with the same easy to listen to reading style.

I received a copy of this book from Lacy Laurel and Audiobookworm. This is my honest review.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lacy Laurel. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Day 13: Describe one underappreciated book everyone should read:

Kindred by Nicola Claire

This is the first in a series (and it’s companions series’ ) and I have loved the whole thing. Next weekend I will be reviewing the latest book in the companion series.

Here is Goodreads blurb..

 

From Amazon Romantic Suspense, Mystery Romance and Fantasy Bestselling Author Nicola Claire comes a seductive and thrilling tale of vampires and vampire hunters, in a world where love and trust are as dangerous and addictive as a Nosferatu’s bite.

“You may not be aware, ma douce, but not all vampyre have a kindred, some will live out their existence without such beauty in their lives. I have waited five hundred years for you.” 

Vampires, shapeshifters, ghouls and magic-users abound in a world where the Norms, (those humans without paranormal abilities), are ignorant of the creatures of the night and the supernatural species that live alongside them.

Lucinda Monk is a bank teller by day and a vampire hunter by night, but she wasn’t always a part of this world. Thrown into a heady mix of powerful people and sensual beings, she’s had to find her way practically blindfolded in amongst the creatures of the night.

Lucinda, though, is a capable and realistic kind of girl. Her motto: Never Show Fear. 

But there’s something different about Luce. Something those creatures she hunts want. So, in order to stay one step ahead of the enemy, she has to let the enemy in. In all his compelling, seductive and delicious ways.

Sleeping with the enemy has never meant so much before. But can she trust him?

From the urban streets of the city to the dark alleys and sinful bars that promise a wickedness a girl from the farm has never before been exposed to, Lucinda gets drawn irreversibly into the dark side of life.

And if the Master of the City has his way, she will always be his. For eternity

I read Kindred and have been a huge fan of Nicola Claire ever since. The characters are so well developed. The story is fast paced, romantic with regular surprises and constant adventure. It is one of my re-reads!

Lex

I came to L.A. with dreams bigger than me.
To learn from the best choreographers in the business and secure a professional dance gig working for Hollywood’s elite.
Everything was going according to plan—until I was literally shoved into the arms of the one man who could make or break my career.
Come to find out, it wasn’t my career I had to worry about.
It was my heart.

Theo
Everything about Alexandra “Lex” Quinn screamed amateur, save for the way she moved across the dance floor.
She was athleticism and grace, precision and passion, and she had a stage presence I couldn’t tear my eyes from.
I wanted her…on my team, in my bed.
There was only one problem…
I couldn’t have both.

Day 12: How do you fight blogger fatigue?

I don’t think I’ve ever had blogger fatigue. I guess that choosing which books I read helps as I only do what I want to do on this blog. (the same goes for Megan)

Some days when I am really tired and have taken on a lot of books to get through, I feel stressed and cannot envision how I want to lay out a page, on those days I look at my previous posts for inspiration.

We try and have a sense of continuity with our posts but occasionally throw in a tag or challenge purely for fun.

Maybe we haven’t been blogging enough to get blogger fatigue.
