I'm so hooked on this series. So far this is my favorite book. I love how all the characters work together. Fred Berman does a wonderful job narrating.
Give me Vane!!!!
I loved that the main female character was not stick-thin but close to my own body type-a size 18. I'm so tired that all the female leads are so short (5'4" or under)-what happened to 5'6" women and anyone over size 6. Full figured gals are always overlooked or in a secondary role. They aren't worthy of a look by the handsome, hunky, leading male- much less being enamored and adored over or (God forbid!) sexy! Ok I had my soapbox moment. I LOVE VANE KATTALAKIS!! We were introduced to him in Night Embrace when he was guarding Sunshine and Bride bought an art piece done by Sunshine. Vane was instantly captivated by Bride. Vane is a drop-dead gorgeous, hunk of a man(wolf). He meets Bride again in her shop and is moved by her sadness over a breakup. He wants her to be happy even though his situation is more serious(he and his brother are being hunted to death; his brother, Fang, is trapped in wolf form and is in a coma from the last attempt on their lives). Vane considers her beautiful and buys an expensive necklace to cheer her up. Vane is a were hunter, rich, handsome, muscular, hunky, magical being who loves Bride for the lovely, kind person that she is. After they have sex, they find out that they are fated to be mates-according to his laws. If Vane doesn't convince Bride in two weeks to be his mate-he will be rendered impotent until SHE dies(were-hunter law gives the female the decision to either take the male as a mate or not). He now has to 'woo' her as well as tell her about what he really is-not human like her. Vane does this while dealing with everything else in his life and he now has to protect Bride because other were hunters could smell her as Vane's mate. In effect, she is in danger because of him. I liked how Vane protected Bride whether it was other were hunters or her ex-boyfriend or HIS family.
There was the scene when they first had sex- but the most hysterical was when Bride'sfriend, Tabitha, was being told by her sister Amanda and her husband about Vane's true identity in the kitchen while Vane and Bride were in the living room. You could hear Tabitha's voice screaming "Whaddaya mean he's a dog!!"
When Bride realised how she truly felt about Vane from the fact that he would abide her decision on whether they become mates or not. Vane's care of her and the way that he got along with her family and how he fought(physically) his family when she was in danger.
Although I loved this story and Mr. Berman's narration-I felt that Bride's voice shouldn'thave been southern. I understand that it takes place in New Orleans-but that's just my opinion.
The down to earthness of the heroine....
besides the descriptiveness of the sex scenes...lol...the main female character is my favorite in this series so far...her family is amazing and her way of thinking and values...
when they go to Bride's families house for Thanksgiving dinner...
I could have...
I was annoyed by how often the author mentioned how bride was over weight ok we get it but does it need to be run it to the ground... plus she was curvy not obese
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This is one of my favorites in the series. Vane is so sweet. Of course, I love them bad boys and he was right up my alley. I like the back-story of how they became half human/animal or visa versa, a unique story.
Suspenseful, hilarious, PERFECT
Ashling grey series, because it has suspense and hilarity and paranormal creatures, but this was way more grown up.
Vane, Bride, and Tabitha (lol she rocks). As you can see I don't really have a favorite
Just get it already! You'll laugh, you have suspense, and you will finish the book like
My reading and listening tastes are eclectic.
Liked this book when I read it a couple of years ago, and listening to it reminded me why I did. The plot is good, the heroine is queen sized in love as well as body, and the point of the story remains just as good now as it was. Vane, the "hero", is no slouch either. I would have liked a better Louisiana accent from the reader, as well as bit more voice differentiation, but you take what you can get.
I have read, listened or both to every thing that Sherrilyn has written (love it all) this is one of my 4 favorites along with Unleash the NIght, Acheron and No Mercy !!
I love to get lost in her novels but this one is by far my favorite. I think it's great that the heroine is a perfect size 4 for a change.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
i love this author and all of these books. i hope the get the rest of them on audo soon im dieing for more. i loved how this book went hand in hand with bad moon rising. i love how the men in the dark hunter series love so deeply if only i could find a man like this on earth lol. it was a well devloped book and charters you learn alot more about ash as the series goes on. i listen to his book first and thought i knew all about him but learn something new in every book. bride and vane make a perfect couple. this book makes you realize everyone has someone special out there its just finding them thats hard.
