I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
Let me first start by saying that I loved this book. I read Redemption first and instantly was caught up in the rapture that is Penton. I enjoyed that fact that isn’t your typically vampire series. The twist of the storyline kept me listening, going back and re -listening to chapters in the book.
What can I say about Mirren? He is strong, mysterious, gorgeous and extremely passionate. Just the very thought of him, makes me wish I was in Penton, AL. Glory is an outspoken, take charge, compassionate woman. The romance that sparks between Mirren and Glory is quite electric.
My only problem with this book is the narrator. Angela did a fantastic job in the first book. I wish she was doing the reading in this book. Amy didn’t have the depth that Angela voice did. I hope for the third book, Angela is back as the narrator.
I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to purchase this book because of Ecstasy, the book before this in the series. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Ecstasy; it just dragged in places and didn’t get really good until half way through the book. But Rapture, ohh Rapture was excellent from the beginning. Daenaira is a strong, loyal, dedicated heroine that fights for everything that is right and just. Magnus is everything that I want my dominant men to be in a romance, strong, passionate, and willing to be vulnerable to their counterparts. The sex scenes in this book are tender and erotic at just the right moments, especially the first time Daenaira and Magnus came together. That scene was almost heartbreakingly beautiful to me. Love Love Loved it!!!!
My girl Kristen, as always did a fantastic job. She is definitely in my top five of favorite narrators.
Once again, Ms. Wright had my laughing so hard at work; I got questioning looks from my co workers. This book is hilarious. Jamie doesn’t have as big of a potty mouth as Taryn but that doesn’t make her any less funny. I like Jamie’s strength and courage and her struggles throughout the book, and Dante, WOW!!! He makes me wish to be wolf-shifter.
I love Jill Redfield as a narrator. She always gives the performance that little extra. Such as when a line says the character laughed, she actually says the line laughing. It’s that little extra that makes her reading very enjoyable.
*****This might be a spoiler, but if you read the first book you should be expecting this. The funniest scene in the book was when Taryn went into labor. I literally cried, I was laughing so hard. Thank you Ms. Wright.
