    Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    Where is book 3 and 4 on Audible?? You tempt us with the first two books and then there's nothing until book 5. I've really gotten to like these characters (and I'm an avid Anne Rice vampire fan) and book 3 and 4 are unavailable. What's up with that?

    I do have to say that I wish they would get someone else to narrate these stories. This guy sounds like he's doing the 6 o'clock news and this just doesn't work for me especially during the more erotic scenes. I'm not sure why he was picked to narrate these luscious stories. Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

    Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of his people, the Carpathians. But they are dying out, falling prey to vampires or are choosing the soulless life. Mikhail is no longer sure he can bear the bleak future laid before him. The only thing that can add light to his life, can relieve his terrible loneliness, is to find a life mate. But he has given up believing one exists. He vents his centuries-old despair in an anguished cry that fills the waning night. And then, incredibly, a life-saving voice answers him.

    Overall

    I'm not much on romance novels, but I love vampire novels so I thought I'd give this series a shot. This is the first one I've listened to and I must say that I think I would like it a whole lot more with a different narrator.

    This narrator used the same voice inflections and and pattern for each character. There is just no reality in her voice. She's very melodramatic which makes the love scenes almost silly instead of intensly passionate. There are sometimes that she should have even used a whisper, but she sounds the same with each sentence she reads.

    This audio monotony takes what could be an enjoyable book and turns it into almost utter boredom. I would like to listen to others in this series, but not if it is with the same narrator.
