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?

"A unique romance - it truly stands on its own!" (Sherrilyn Kenyon, New York Times bestselling author)
I am thrilled that the Immortals After Dark series is becoming available in audio format. This is the best paranormal romance series out there, in my opinion, and I've read hundreds and hundreds of books in this genre. Robert Petkoff does a fantastic job as narrator for this book. I can't wait to hear his performances of the rest of the books!
no, this is my first, it is a fairly good story, just hard to get into.
The performance was outstanding, I will be looking for more books narrated by him.
Yes, by the end I quite enjoyed it.
I've been looking for a new series after finishing the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Karen Marie Moning's Highlanders and Fever series, and Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. I think this series is going to compete without much effort. The story line is captivating, the sex is hot, and the characters attach themselves to you. For days after finishing the book I remembered some of the scenes and secretly relived their vivid accounting. It will remain on my list of books to revisit again and again in the future.
Enthralling from the beginning. I enjoyed this one.
Action as well as romance. Not boring.
Would have an enjoyed having a woman depict Emma.
went to get next book and it is not on audible!? hope they get more soon.
The narrator, Robert Petkoff… what can I say, but my goodness this man is talented! I’ve read a couple of reviews where some listeners weren’t impressed with his female voices, but you should take into consideration he had to represent about 15 different personalities in this story. From being a Narrator to Emma, Lachlan, Bo, Regin, Harlan etc. He did a fantastic job for a voice actor. He’s very talented. The majority of the time, I forgot it was one voice actor. His portrayal of Lachlan was perfect!
I give all thumbs up for the choice of using Mr. Petkoff. I’m all for mixing up the romance section with new voices. I was getting a little bored with the same voices.
I love Kresley Cole’s stories. The story is a graphic romance, so beware. If you haven’t read Kresley Cole, it might not be your cup of tea.
Dark, different, and extremely erotic! The narrator took a bit of getting used to at first, but he ultimately, along with the author, delivered. Audible please get more Kresley Cole!
I do not just want to read books; i wish i could climb in and live there.
The Narration was excellent!!! which is always important....
Other Kresley Cole books and Gena Showalter too!
YES !!!! Very much
the emotion from each of the charters.
I feel in love with the story line.
The beginning when he breaks free from his prison.
I did listen to it all in one sitting I didn't sleep the whole night.
Can't wait tell more of her books are out on audio.
the best paranormal romance I've read lately.
My only comment would be to make more Kresley Cole audiobooks asap!
