    In all his 400 years, Rayven never met a woman like Rhianna McLeod. She is a vision of light, of warmth, of everything he is not - nor can ever be. Doomed to live forever in darkness and solitude, he knows all too well the risk in getting close to her, yet he hungers for her with a fierce passion he swears he will never allow himself to feel. Rhianna's father sold her to Rayven to put food on the table so she had no choice but to go with the dark stranger. To her surprise, he gives her everything she wants: the finest clothes, education, and the run of the castle - everything, that is, except his touch.

    What did you love best about A Darker Dream (Love Spell Romance)?

    The story was well written and I didn't find myself bored with a lot of unnecessary fluff


    What other book might you compare A Darker Dream (Love Spell Romance) to and why?

    This book is very similar to every other vamp book you've ever read.


    Did Christine Padovan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes and that's about all she did properly. Her cadence was all wrong and the voice she used for the leading male was awful... didn't appeal or give any desirability


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Just an ordinary vamp falling for an ordinary girl…


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good read if you're bored and just need something..

    When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living - with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of seven billion animated corpses. And one international team of elite special operators - supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us - are humanity's last best hope for survival....

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    This series puts a wonderful spin on dysfunctional relationships, I was able to laugh at the various similarities I have with the female lead and reflect on some more serious issue within my own life.

    I loved this book from cover to cover, it's well worth the credit (but why waste a credit on book less than 10 bucks)

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    If you loved FSOG you will like this book as well, but you won't read/listen to it thinking about how much they are alike, these are two different books.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Once he had loved with such passion, his name was legend: Tarien Soul. Now, a thousand years later, a new threat calls him from the Fading Lands, back into the world that had cost him so dearly. Now, an ancient, familiar evil is regaining its strength, and a new voice beckons him - more compelling, more seductive, more maddening than any before.

    The narrator was good, no Parker, but the most irratating aspect of her narration was the fluency of her reading, she needs a little more practice

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. This was a really great listen. The storyline is interesting and the romance is steamy (not raunchy, which I like too - but she gives a great balance for those who don't like sexxxy romances) The highlight in this book is the cool little secret revealed about Ami and the development of new enemies to the group. I actually think this one was better than the 1st... and we'll get a part 3 (no release date yet, but I can't wait)
