Robert Petkoffs narration of the characters is brilliant. His Lothaire was PERFECT for the character portrayed. I like how the author mixes in lots of steamy scenes and Lothaire was chalk full of them! Go Russian Vampire!!
I now look for other titles that he has narrated. He is BRILLIANT!!
I always laugh out laud when listening to a KC book. She has a way of making even the trials and tribulations of the supernatural funny, touching and sincere. Almost like real life??
Because of the pairing with Robert Petkoff i have become totally addicted to Kresley Cole as an author. Normally i don't skip ahead in a series but i couldn't stop myself from buying Lothaire even though it was billed as the last one and so far Audible has only released the first three in the series. (PLEASE do more ASAP!!)
All i can say is BRAVO!! for a fictional romance type of novel it was brilliant! FUN! SEXY!
Mr Petkoff could read the phone book and i would be enthralled!! His delivery and use of different accents are PERFECT for each character. His Scotts/Lachay interpretation are now the men of my dreams! His Accent for Lothaire was spot on. I finished this one in only 2 days but the entire time i kept blurting out, "VWOMPIRE!!"
If you want a really good time just buy one of Kresley Coles books and enter a totally different world full of adventure and sex and modern pop culture.
i can't wait for the next installment and am already re-listening to the 3 i own.
I really like authors like Kresley Cole and Laurel K. Hamilton. I love Shifter stories period, and this one was so unique I was enthralled! Totally different POV than one would usually read. Lots of hot-hot-hot sex scenes! OMG! So erotic! But also not gross... I don't know how she does it.
I love this family and I love how the author writes it so I feel I am living there with them! I have read all three but couldn't wait to listen since I am more a listener than a reader.
The narrator did a great job with the accents although there were places that felt awkward to me. Not sure if that was the writing style or the narration. Sometimes with narrators it stems from a place of them not being readers--delivery is everything! I am kinda spoiled because I am such a huge fan of Kresley Cole/Robert Petkoff and the immortals after dark series. I will still give him 5 stars because I freakin adore a book with accents and this kind of performance.
Can't wait for more from this new author/narrator combo.
Hilarious, sexy, engrossing.
I love this series! I've read it already, but listening was even more fun. The narrator did a fab job and I loved his use of accents!
I have dogs so most of the behaviors depicted were right on from my perspective. I laughed out loud numerous times. I also got super turned on from the expertly written sex scenes.
I am really enjoying this new author/narrator combo. I've witnessed Payne's increased abilities as a writer and I can only think she will continue to get better and better. She is now a one-click for me. My only other one-click buys are Kresely Cole/Robert Petkoff, So way to go to this new unknown, (as of yet), author and narrator.
I think I liked it even better with the various voices and accents. The narrator did a stellar job with the main characters.
The first encounter on the plane... and when Jacob said, "Tae meeting each other." Sigh
He did awesome with the different accents and voices. Stellar job especially with the scots accent and Jacob. grrrrrr. Sexy characters even through his narration which is tuff to accomplish when you narrate this kind of romantic fiction mixed with erotica. High marks to him for accomplishing it!
The whole story was moving. I didn't like how short it was, but the author says part two will be out soon. The entire story moved along quickly with just the right amount of tension mixed with erotic moments.
I really like this new author and have been following her on Kindle. She's improved dramatically in her story execution, but her stories are always the most unique I've ever read. Her point of view is totally different from any others in this genre, which I can totally appreciate. She is never formula romance, thankfully! I also find myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions when I am reading her often funny take on things.
I highly suggest Payne Hawthorne's works as great, fun, sexy entertainment. Guaranteed to arouse as well keep you wondering what's to come next.
I don't read.... But i can say i am adoring the narration and the entire series!
I really like the heroines in this series. They are practical and realistic women. They are alot like me! Melanie is awesome and i adore her right along with Aimee and Sarah from the previous two installments.
GREAT NARRATION!!! Wonderful performance! Really good with all the voices and accents etc.
I have laughed out loud more than once. I have smiled and grimaced and really been a part of this world whilst listening. This whole series is one that once i start a book, i can't stop and have to listen straight through... :]
Can't wait to get the next one!!! I want to be an Immortal Gaurdian! (or the girlfriend to one, at the very least!)....
YES!!! Any of the Frost/Gilbert pairings are the most entertaining and fun world to enter!! Just the right amount of adult themed fun along with great plots and just enough adventure! Frost books move along quickly and are never boring! The sex is also quite well written! Tavia Gilbert is an amazing...wonderful... fantastic.... narrator!! i just adore her and all the voices are distinct and the characters are clearly defined! GREAT pairing!
I love SPADE!!! He is so sexy and masculine and refined!!! GREAT male character!!
EVERYTHING!! See above... nothing but glowing praise for her as a narrator!! i will never hesitate to purchase something she has narrated!
Almost! Spent a weekend and i was done...
Great author!! Get anything she has written and is narrated by Tavia... wonderful, fun entertainment!! :]
I don't read, i only listen.... and i very much enjoyed this audio book!!
I really like to get to know the characters and Kresley Cole is the best at character developement! I fell in love with Evie and Jack!!
Evie was performed brilliantly!! Jack was quite good too .... They were all done well and i could tell who was talking and distinguish their characters perfectly!
at the end... i know she needed to leave us hanging... but i don't like how it went down with Jack and Evie...
I am quite fond of Kresley Cole as an author and am addicted to her adult series which is narrated by Robert Petkoff.... (can't go wrong there!) ... I do listen to some YA books and this one was very good for the genre. I do prefer a bit more adult situations... but she managed to get in some real teenage angst and some discovery as well... which is nice... i like to have the characters evolve during a story... which they all did!!
I will definitly purchase the second installment in this series when it becomes available!!
I don't know, i rarely have time to sit and read. I can say that without Robert Petkoff's naration i do not think i would enjoy these books as much as i do.
He is the best narrator ever!! I adore all of his performances and i always look for books he has narrated. His ability to do different accents is amazing. He is also quick with the dialoge scenes and can switch up the accents so that i am always certain of who in the story is talking. I can't say enough about his brilliant performance narration! He is awesome!!!
I really enjoy all the Kresley Cole books. They are kind of my guilty pleasure and the second that Audible gets another release i buy it and listen to it straight through, usually only takes me a couple days tops. I rarely do that with the other titles i get. So i guess that means i like her and this narrator a lot. The story usually moves along nicely and there is always at least one or two really good sex scenes. Plus the world of the Lore is fun and interesting and different! GREAT Author with a fabulous immagination! THANKS! :]
I will probably listen again. I really liked the narrator! He did a great job with the all the charaters and i could easily tell them apart! I am quiet fond of J.R Wards style of writing! It is hip, modern and edgy.
When Vin saw Gretchen from across the club. I was so there!!
No, this was my first to be narrated by him. LOVED his deep masculine voice! thought he was supberb for this book!
I love anything supernatural or different. The whole story line and concept are right up my alley. So well written too!! Never a boring or dull moment!
I am delighted to see that Jim Heron is in the next installments. i wish he would walk into my life!! I plan on purchasing the next 2 when my credits come in this month!
Yes, i will. The writing in her books is so rich and complex!! i know i miss allot and am just about to go back and re-listen to the entire Outlander series again. Last time i did this it took me a year to get through all of them. But that is a GOOD thing!! i adore being in that world with Jamie and Clare. I am head over heels in love with Jamie though!! I liked it that this book was exclusively about him!
The Narration was great! I can't get enough of the Scots brogue and both narrators did supberb jobs of creating the characters as individual and distinct!
I always have viceral reactions to any DG book!! She has a way of writing that transcends words and goes straight to my heart. I have no idea how she does it but she is a fabulous author!!
It was thrilling to get a small peak into Jamie's time at Hellwater. I was sad when it ended. i wanted more of him and Willie especially. His character is so rich and developed that i think of him as an entirely REAL PERSON!!! He is someone that is now in my heart as if a relative or friend. I will always recommend ANY book that GB has written or participated in. She is the master!! Always worth the purchase and always memorable, entertaining and REAL! I also always learn something about history or the way humanity thought or felt. What can i say? This author is my hands down favorite of all time!
Yes! Moved along nicely. GREAT characters and personality definition! Perfect sprinkling of erotic and humor!
I loved the humor sprinkled in. It was modern and fun. GREAT ride!!
I loved Dragos and how he evolved throughout the book. Pia was great too and her evolotion was expected. But the author did a great job of showing how Dragos had never loved and why that would feel so forgein to him. His changes throughout the book were inspiring to me as an author.
This was an easy listen. Great narrator. Fun story. Some Erotica and lots of humor from the distinctly different characters. I got it on sale and would recommend waiting for it to cost less than one credit but overall a really fun romp for a weekend of listening!
