Meet my narrator, PJ Ochlan!

Meet the narrator of the two new Elite Ops audiobooks and my new friend, PJ Ochlan. A veteran stage, screen, and television actor, PJ is also a dialect coach and audiobook narration instructor as well as one of the co-founders of the Deyan Institute. We met last fall through Twitter when PJ posted about his work on Hard Target and Personal Target. As we chatted back and forth online, it turned out that we had some friends in common. I knew next to nothing about audiobooks or audiobook production and asked if we could do an interview when Elite Ops was released in audio. PJ generously agreed. I hope you’ll enjoy learning about his process and audiobook narration as much as I did. Kay: What led you to voice acting/narration? PJ: I started acting professionally when I was 11. Shortly thereafter I got my start behind the microphone doing commercial…

Brews and Brawny Dudes: In Which I Talk About How Much I Loved Say Yes to the Marquess

Title: Say Yes to the MarquessSeries: Castles Ever AfterAuthor: Tessa DarePurchase: Amazon | B&N | iBooks | GooglePlay My ridiculous love for Tessa Dare’s writing is no secret. I’ve rambled semi-coherently about her novellas on this blog and managed to extend my fanaticism into other awesome book blogs. That said, I still feel obligated to add a disclaimer to this review: I’m a fangirl, plain and simple, and this review of Say Yes to the Marquess isn’t so much a review as it is just me talking about why I enjoy reading Tessa Dare. I’d been in a bit of a historical romance slump lately–one that started with a couple of Bridgerton novels and just kind of persisted through a few other books that I don’t think I’ll ever get around to reviewing. I was starting to feel sort of jaded and more than a little bored with historical romance….

Catch a Falling Heiress

Catch a Falling Heiress is the third in Laura Lee Guhrke’s An American Heiress in London series. This book starts off a little slowly with a prologue re-introducing readers to the male characters from the previous two books. And those who haven’t read the second book may not fully comprehend why they are setting out to destroy a man. It also seemed a little implausible to me that the heroine Linnet who moves in the same circles as the villain wouldn’t have known about the past scandal. She falls for his line of malarkey hook, line, and sinker. Oh, and why name a stubborn, willful woman after a tiny bird anyway? But I digress. Jack Featherstone, at least, is a hero worthy of that title. He saves her from her own bad judgment by offering himself up as a matrimonial sacrifice.  She continues her run of bad judgment by refusing…
