Today's post is a little different. Kaleo Griffith is not an author, but he is the narrator for Pamela Clare's I-Team series, which Kame loves. I hope you enjoy this interview!



WELCOME TO THE BLOG, KALEO! :) 



Griffith-- born in Lubbock, Texas and raised in the Hawaiian Islands--has been been performing since the age of 15. Griffith graduated cum laude from Franklin Pierce University with a B.A. in Theatre, holds an M.F.A. in Acting from Rutgers University, and is a graduate of The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He has also lived, and trained classically in the United Kingdom through Roger Williams University.


Voice/Narration
Griffith's voice work encompasses many TV/ Radio commercial campaigns and audiobooks. Griffith was just honored by The Library Journal and AudioFile Magazine for BEST AUDIO OF 2013
in Karen Russel's (Pulitzer Prize finalist) Vampire's In The Lemon Grove (for which Griffith  also won an "EARPHONE")

Kame: Hi Everyone!
One of the fantastic things about being a Guest Reviewer is I read great books and I get to talk about them.  As you all know I am a HUGE Pamela Clare I-Team fan, read them all and anxiously awaiting the ones yet to be written; but the I-Team opened me up to the world of Audio books.  (Thank you Pat and Colleen!) I have learned not all audio books are equal and to me it all comes down to the narrator – and I must say Pamela Clare has the best narrator in the business; Kaleo Griffith, and today he is here at TBQ's Book Palace!

Hi Kaleo – thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule.


WELCOME BACK TO THE BLOG, CHELSEA! :) 



Chelsea M. Cameron is a YA/NA New York Times/USA Today Best Selling author from Maine. Lover of things random and ridiculous, Jane Austen/Charlotte and Emily Bronte Fangirl, red velvet cake enthusiast, obsessive tea drinker, vegetarian, former cheerleader and world's worst video gamer. When not writing, she enjoys watching infomercials, singing in the car and tweeting (this one time, she was tweeted by Neil Gaiman). She has a degree in journalism from the University of Maine, Orono that she promptly abandoned to write about the people in her own head. More often than not, these people turn out to be just as weird as she is.

Her New Adult Contemporary Romance titles include My Favorite Mistake, which has been bought by Harlequin along with a sequel, Deeper We Fall and Faster We Burn (April 20, 2013)


Her Young Adult books include Nocturnal, Nightmare and Neither, the first three books in The Noctalis Chronicles. The fourth and final book, Neverend will be out in 2013.

Unwritten by Chelsea M. Cameron
Expected Release Date: June 2014
Genre: New Adult Contemporary


Blair Walton isn't your average tattooed children's librarian. She's also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her bff Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she's afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death, if she knew about them. Blair and Raine keep their smut peddling ways a secret from everyone, including family.
On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and "do some research." It just so happens that Blair has a guy that's ready and willing. Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He's British, looks fabulous in a suit and gets bonus points for being a single dad. But what started out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. Someone else is writing this love story and Blair has completely lost control. But will Declan still feel the same way when he finds out the truth about Blair and her secret motives?

Once Upon a Billionaire by Jessica Clare
Publisher: InterMix (April 15, 2014) 
Series: The Billionaire Boys Club, 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance



The Billionaire Boys Club is a secret society of six men who have vowed success—at any cost. Not all of them are old money, but all of them are incredibly wealthy. They’re just not always as successful when it comes to love…

 As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi’s presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required—especially when dealing with royal etiquette.

 Unfortunately for Griffin, he’s stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn’t know a thing about high society—but she sure can kiss. Her lack of polish may sink Griffin, because after all, even his money can’t buy class. But through Maylee’s eyes, he’s starting to appreciate the simple things in life—if simple means the most complicated woman he’s ever met.

 Maylee is everything Griffin isn’t—and everything he wants—if he can let down his guard and step outside his sheltered world…

The Billionaire Boys Club is breaking all the rules. Don’t miss other novels in the series from InterMix.

Wild About Her Wingman by Robin Bielman
Publisher: Entangled: Bliss (April 14, 2014) 
Series: Secret Wishes, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Playing it safe never felt so risky.

Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…

As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.

WELCOME TO THE BLOG, LAURA! :) 



Laura is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over a dozen books in contemporary and paranormal romance. Growing up, Laura’s large extended family believed in the supernatural, and family lore involving angels, ghosts, and evil-eye curses cemented in Laura a life-long fascination with storytelling and all things paranormal. She lives in Maryland with her husband, two daughters, and cute-but-bad dog, and appreciates her view of the Chesapeake Bay every day.

Hard to Hold on To by Laura Kaye
Publisher: Avon Impulse (August 19, 2014) 
Series: Hard Ink, 2.5
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not
being able to save those he loves—which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago. 

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he
makes her feel—and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them,
they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

Almost a Bride by Sarah Mayberry
Publisher: Tule Publishing Group  (April 12, 2014) 
Series: Montana Born Brides, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

For a limited time only, Almost A Bride is only $0.99!

Tara Buck has always been the good sister, level-headed by comparison to Scarlett, her flaky, impulsive twin. But when Tara learns her fianc√© has been cheating on her with one of his school students, the orderly world she’s created for herself suddenly feels as if it’s falling apart. For years she chose the safe option, but from now on she’s going to live a little, stretch her wings…be a little daring. And if that means acting on the long-suppressed feelings she’s always had for Reid Dalton, then so be it!

Reid has wanted Tara from the moment he met her, but she’s always been out of bounds. Not only is she his patrol partner at the Bozeman PD, she’s also engaged. But then her relationship blows up, and Reid finds himself battling his own instinct to stake his claim with the finest, hottest woman he’s ever known.

Even if anything did happen between them, it would only ever be temporary - Reid’s a born wanderer, while Tara’s roots run deep in Marietta. So even if things are good between them, it seems their romance is destined to be short and sweet...


Tara’s twin sister, Scarlett, also has a Montana Born Brides story: look out for Second Chance Bride by Trish Morey. Find out more at MontanaBornBooks.com.
