Performance Notes
Rescuing the man tied to a tree seemed like a rational decision. Claire is a smart, capable bookkeeper who happens to work at a martial arts academy. She has no idea the door she walked through to save the bound man would leave her trapped in 13th-century Scotland. She is unable to regret the night of passion shared with Ian, even though it happened with the threat of death just outside the door. She pretends to be content with Ian's friendship, knowing his people must come first. Compelled by honor and tormented by desire, is being his woman, while he marries another, enough? Ian, Laird of the Draig Clan, is a man trapped by fate. Forced by necessity to marry a woman he has never met, her dowry is essential to save his clan. However, he is in love with the woman who saved his life and then spent one night in his arms. Duty prevents Ian from being able to marry Claire as custom, honor, and his heart demand. Drawn to her, believing they share the same desires and dreams in life, he finally offers her the only option available, a place by his side and in his bed.

WHAT AUTHORS HAVE TO SAY: "Patricia is simply a star. Turning Dangerous Odds into an audio book was not going to be an easy task. This true story is rife with thugs, Fed's, a few fugitives, and the occasional diplomat. There were accents that would be required; German, Spanish, East Coast, West Coast as well as a vast age difference in the main characters in the book. Patricia mastered every challenge and simply delivered an outstanding product. She brought the book to life with her rich, yet subtle portrayals while managing to sound like the young girl I was at the time. Aside from being a master storyteller, Patricia is professional, flexible and was simply a joy to work with." ~Marisa Lankester author of Dangerous Odds “Patricia Santomasso did an exceptional job narrating my novel The Far Journey. Like all the best narrators, among which she is most definitely one, she made it better. Her voice made Paula Master come alive, gave her the force, strength and emotion to carry the novel. She took the personalities and backgrounds of the other characters and used a different voice, tone, pitch, accent to distinguish them. A reader will have no difficulty recognizing who is speaking even without attributions Awesome voice acting. Patricia is easy to work with and very helpful. She knows what needs to be done to produce the best work possible. All of us know the importance of a to a top narrator/producer. I can only thank my lucky stars I found Patricia. I look forward to her narrating all my work.” ~Tom Reppert author of The Far Journey "Ms. Santomasso was fabulous to work with on the narration of my debut novel. She asked me questions about the small details of my story so that she could stay true to my vision. In my story, Patricia narrated the voices of several characters who have Down syndrome. She clearly studied their voices and treated them with respect and authenticity. I've heard many times that she was spot on in her portrayal. I was thrilled with both my end product and Ms. Santomasso's level of professionalism. I would love to work with her in the future." ~Laura Ward author of NOT YET "Patricia Santomasso did a fabulous job narrating my book, The Olive Picker. Her voice really stood out from the crowd in her audition, she was able to present the content as if it were her own, and paid particular attention to vocal changes between characters, and expressed the tenor of situations correctly. Patricia was very easy to work with, very punctual, and made the few changes I requested quickly. I felt her production of The Olive Picker totally brought it to life, and the great reviews we are getting prove it." ~Kathryn Brettell author of THE OLIVE PICKER "Patricia was both a joy to work with and highly professional. Her talent and skill brought life to my characters in unexpected ways, even making me laugh aloud at a line I'd written and then read dozens of times." ~Carolyn Astfalk author of STAY WITH ME
