Could her sworn enemy lead her out of darkness?
As a member of an ancient order of hunters, Lark has found that eliminating dangerous vampires is about more than duty. It's personal - a kill for every day her husband was held captive before his death. Staking her prey isn't a challenge until she confronts Domingos LaRoque. Mad with vengeance and the blood of a powerful phoenix, Domingos tests her skills...and seduces her soul.
Once a talented musician, Domingos can't escape the constant music in his head...or his need to destroy the werewolf pack that tortured him. Though trusting the hunter ordered to kill him could be his gravest mistake, the dark desires between them can't be refused. Yet as he and Lark become allies to defeat a mutual threat, loving the enemy may be the ultimate sacrifice.

I pretty much love anything that comes from the talented mind of Michele Hauf and this one, whilst being a 'bit different', was an enjoyable listen and it's the start of her new In The Company of Vampires series.
You don't get a hunky alpha type hero but instead you get Domingos, a tortured by sadistic Werewolves, damaged, nearly mad vampire bent on revenge and Lark, a Huntress and part of The Order known as Knights, but she too was haunted by her past and trying to revenge a wrong. He is such a sweet, tender, likeable character that you just can't help but fall in love with and root for him as he tries desperately to befriend Lark as they call a truce between them day by day until a bond is slowly formed followed by attraction, desire and hot on it's heels.... sex and love.
But for most good stories there's always the 'bad guys' namely Rook and King who are in charge of The Order and in this paranormal action-packed listen it is suggested that they are not human and they try to destroy alliances and interfere but who are they really and what is their goal? - we will have to wait and see.
Worth a credit? An entertaining, enjoyable but heart-wrenching love story and I can see this series getting better and better so I'm patiently waiting book 2 - hint hint Michele - please please don't keep your fans waiting long.
If you love vampire eroticism, you'll love this one. I listened to it on a long drive and was ready to get back in the car and finish the next chapter!
The scene when Domingos is slamming his head into a wall would have completely freaked me out. You'll have to read it to see what I'm talking about!
Every love scene is my favorite.
The narrator's voice was very pleasant and soothing, which is important for a book of this nature. She's easy to understand and I love that she can speak with a french accent that doesn't sound corny. I wish this narrator had done all of the Harry Potter books - that's hours of listening to a bad british voice I can't get back. :)
An intriguing romance made more so by the talented narrator! Her soothing voice, easy cadence, clear articulation, dramatic emphasis, and grasp of the French accent quickly captivate and lure the listener into the thoughts and emotions of each character. With skill and ease, she brings each to life. Well done!
