This ranks up as one of the top three series i have listened to. The stories all flow together using the same amazing narrator.
Amazing as always!

I have one thing to say about Robert Petkoff reading these books....WOW!!! He is the perfect person to read these characters. Rarely do you come across an actor who can not only play all male characters very convincingly but also play female characters and make you forget it's a male reading the character. Not to mention the accents he does are spot on! He makes listening to these great stories so enjoyable I find myself getting lost in them. I'd like to hear him read Christine Feehan's books as well...he'd be perfect for those too!
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Now THIS is paranormal romance! Action, drama, suspense, wit and more intriguing supernatural beings than we can shake a broomstick at coalesce into one of the best paranormal romances ever. This is an amazing intro into a very promising series, one with plenty of well-rounded secondary characters to carry on what begins here. Lachlain is at once a rough, anti-hero alpha and achingly caring and sexy. He's very complex given the nature of his last several centuries and he couldn't be better complimented by Emma's sweet, yet not-so-biddable nature. She's weak in the beginning, yes, but morphs into a powerful, kick butt type the longer she interacts with our hero. She's smart, witty and possesses a timeless grace that others around her can only dream of possessing. Her family of Valkyries is very intriguing and I'm glad to see Cole keeping their stories coming as well. This is a very fresh, very consuming addition to the world of paranormal romance. Very much worth as many rereads as the book itself can handle. It's on to the second in the series next, No Rest for the Wicked and the third, Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night.
Robert Petkoff is one of the best narrator I have listened too. He made a really good book great.
Absolutely. Erotic love story between the two!
Emma and Lockland. The struggle to be together and there journey it takes you on.
All of them!
A must have!!!
I would totally listen to this book over and over again. The passion in the book is so great.
Fifty Shades is a series I can compare it to. The passion is similar. I can image the scenes in my head very clearly.
I really like the accents he used for the different characters.
Yes I did have a reaction to the whole book, I went around talking about the characters to family and friends.
I loved this book and ended up going to bed so much later than I was suppose to. I could not wait to order the next book in the series and am now on the third book. I think that this series is absolutely great and have already told so many people about it. Fifthy Shades of Grey was great and so is Immortals After Dark.
I am a Trubie from Philly!! As you can see Eric is my fav, swoon!!! I love all Philly Teams, and sports!! And my favorite past time is reading.
I really do not have the time to read like I used to. My schedule is too complicated.
The beginning is the memorable. I won't give it away, but it almost put me off. But, once I got past that I was okay. The beginning is really intense!!!
This was my first Robert P performance. I love the way he does accents and voices!! The female voices will grow on you trust me. It's a little interesting at first, but just remember it is a guy doing a chick's voice (keep everything in perspective)!!!
The scene when Emmaline decided to accept her destiny. And make the decision to choose her life for herself. That was a great moment for me. We all have that one moment to jump off the precipice or walk away, and she dove!!
I suggest reading this series. It's really good, and I enjoyed it. Robert's performance was great, and I really loved the way he did Regan.
I've listened to 1-5 in this series. This first book was my least favorite. The good news is that it only gets better from here, and this first one was an enjoyable listen. Overall, this author really knows how to deliver a well-paced, action-packed romantic adventure. The problem is I didn't particularly like either character in the beginning. He's a bit of an un-evolved caveman. She's a bit of a wuss. I wasn't fond of the dominant/submissive tone of their relationship. Fortunately, I hung in there. As the characters develop further, he loses some of his caveman act as he works out his inner strife, and she discovers her backbone. Some people might be too turned off to hang in there long enough to witness the shift. If you're not into seductive "rape" scenes but do like romantic action adventures, you could easily skip to book 2 and not miss much. Don't give up on this author too early. She does deliver good entertainment. Robert Petkoff, the narrator, is generally ah-may-zing, but the falsetto that he chose for this heroine was a little grating. I'll forgive him as he does everything else so well.
Yes - i love this book, read it once a year or so, but now that i have the audio version - the voice acting is really wonderful. At first i wasn't excited at all that it was narrated by a man, but i'm hooked!
I think this particular book just got on my nerves from the beginning. I'm sure that this book just might suit another, but this isn't my taste.
I guess less caveman more sexy vampire.
I think the narrator did what he could . He was ok.
To each their own.
