A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her....
After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.
A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy....
Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents - until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae - and their notorious dark desires - ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.
An all-consuming desire....
Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?

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!
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.
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.
Kresley Cole is such a fabulous author! I have listened to and read the books in series many times and only enjoy them more each time. The characters are wonderfully vital and each must find their own way through past traumas to make a new future together. Loved it!
Umm, no. I found myself super annoyed at the main characters in the beginning. Him, less than her. I understand that she had been this super-sheltered person but good Lord, I felt she was a dolt. She did develop nicely as far as being a good, loyal and eventually strong person on her own but I had to work through the first half of the book to see that happen.
This book had a LOT of sexual build up and tension. When you finally got to the actual sex scene, it was well written but afterward, I lost the characters again for a bit. Luckily, the action started shortly after and we didn't have to focus on her becoming a dolt again and him being obnoxious again for a bit. Actually, in retrospect, he was always that way and for a big, tough guy that claimed she was his & he had to protect her, she ended up not needing him for anything but his blood in the end. Despite all this, I would say that if you like steamy sex scenes and a bit of action on the side, you will probably enjoy this book. I am only a fan once in a while. I am content I spent the credit, I just will wait until I'm in the mood to grab another Kelsey Cole novel again. I tend to like more action and a stronger heroine from the start than not.
It is often said that a book's performance can make or break it. It's never more true then with Robert's interpretation of this one. He is brilliant!
The story is a good urban fantasy with all the usual supernatural characters and a love story with challenges. The heroine grows and changes as the story progresses. Overall, a good story in this genre.
Robert brings it to life in an amazing way. His accents and voices for each character are spot on. His rhythm for the reading feels like a smooth stretch of highway.
I recommend it!
