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 enjoy the fantasy romance genre, and I bought this book at the Audible club price since it was less than $10 and a reasonable length. I must say, it was a terrific bargain. I really enjoyed the story. I had listened to the previous book in the series (also available on Audible), a novella called "A Warlord Wants Forever" and was looking forward to listening to this one. It did not disappoint. The world that the author builds is exciting and unique and the characters have depth. The narrator was fantastic, and I would love to listen to more books read by him.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I've read both of Cole's boooks available through Audible, this story and the one before it (The Warlord Wants Forever). I loved both of them. I'm glad to see them in audio and am waiting for the next stories in Cole's series to come out. As much as I really liked the first story I absolutely loved this one! I think the narrator could have used a little help on Emma's voice (which was annoying at first but it got better after a bit) but other than that I loved the performance. Lochlain's voice was just right (can you say shivers?)! The story was pretty good. It progressed well and totally suprised me at the end with an unexpected twist. I would definately give it two thumbs up!!
I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.
I was in a hurry and hunting through a series of books when I came across this one. I really didn't know what to expect but this was a wonderful find! The story is refreshing while still holding a slight formula I have seen before - man wants woman, man kidnaps woman, woman falls for man, woman's family of raging ladies try to kill man... it was a fun journey though.
Bravo to the narrator too - pulling off all the accents he had to can turn ugly but I never once was appauled by bad dialects. he did a great job. 4.5 stars
This is just my kind of book! I loved it. I have read all of this series and can't wait for January for the next book to come out!
The narrator was great but the dialogue was perverse! I thought this could have been a great sci-fi without all of the over the top lusting! Sort of disappointed....
I read this book when it first was published and loved it. It remains my favorite of the author's books. It is also in my top five favorite paranormal romance books. I was a bit worried when I saw that the book was finally in audio, but Robert Petkoff made me love the book even more! He does a fabulous job of creating a distinct voice for each character with appropriate accents and manners of speech.
Very different romantic novel. Its exciting, witty, dangerous, and oh so hot! She's naive and somewhat clueless, he's a brute (literally) who's oh so yummy. I want to read the next book.
I am a business owner, a single Mom, & a lifelong book addict. I hope to fuel my 7 yr. old daughter's passion for books while I feed my own!
This is an incredible series - Kresley Cole has an imagination like no other. I have read the entire series, but am so excited to see them finally coming to Audible! Robert Petkoff's performance is outstanding. This has been a combination to savor!
