    A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps to catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks for a vacation far from home. Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. From the moment they meet, Raven and Mikhail are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them. But just as fate unexpectedly brings these life mates together, malevolent forces threaten to destroy them.

    Overall

    I'm a guy who can enjoy an occasional romance and this book is a good one, occasionally. The sex is drawn out, overblown, full of every cliche imaginable and hard to get through sometimes. Come to think of it, that describes much of the book. The premise is interesting though and keeps me listening. Have large doubts about making it "deep into her velvet sheath" of a series.

    Suffering a horrific childhood as the son of a Bloodletter in his father's war camp, Vishous pledges death to members of the vampire-hunting Lessening Society. Vishous knows no love. He feels no emotion. He lives only to oppose the slayers. But after suffering a mortal wound, a human surgeon named Dr. Jane Whitcomb tends to him. Her ministrations, however, extend beyond his physical injury - and before long her tender hand has awakened feelings of pleasure that Vishous never dreamed existed.

    Story

    I've been listening to this series in order and it's been great 'till now. What happened to Jim Frangione? It sounds like him I guess but the story is being read COMPLETELY different than the first 4 books. This is the first time you can't tell which male is talking and half the time their pitch is raised to female status. That never happened in the other books. Even common recurring words are now pronounced differently. Sympath has become symphath as one example. Was this the first book he recorded and the reading evolved from here or is this a narrator bait and switch. It's confusing. It's a great book all in all but I hope the narration in the next books returns to the norm that caught my attention to start with.

    Byron the Carpathian has traveled the globe for centuries, desperately seeking a mortal woman for his lifemate. And then, in an Italian villa, he hears the threads of enchanting music.

    Story

    My wife and I are making progress through this series and I don't understand the narrator complaints in the reviews. The Carpathian men in these stories are hundreds and sometimes thousands of years old, yet they are expected to sound English? I haven't liked any of Juanita Parker's performances and what she did to Lucian in "Dark Guardian" was almost a sin. None of the women readers have even attempted to make the men sound like what they are, ancients from Eastern Europe. This is only the second male reading and I hope to hear more.
