Publisher's Summary

They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light....

Alexandria Houton will sacrifice anything - even her life - to protect her orphaned little brother. But when both encounter an unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex can only cry to heaven for their deliverance.... And out of the darkness swoops Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious, than any other creature of the night. The ageless Carpathian male snatches them from a hideous fate. But is Aidan Alex's salvation...or her sin? If she surrenders to Aidan's savage, unearthly seduction, and gives him the color, the light, the family he craves, will Alex truly save her brother? Or sacrifice more than her life?

    "Unfinished Business"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I felt like we didn't get the final confrontation between the heroine and her new boss. I understand one of the points of this series is that the females are supposed to eventually take on a more demure attitude but that really just kind of bugged me.


    Any additional comments?

    I really just found this overall story to be good but not as enthralling as the first two stories. I am sure the next book will be better given the two main characters.

    "Christine Feehan always good! Marc Bachmann BEST!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Gold to be better than the print version?

    I only listen to audio books


    What other book might you compare Dark Gold to and why?

    Christine Feehan is a wonderful writer...


    Which character – as performed by Marc Bachmann – was your favorite?

    Adrian! Marc Bachmann has THE sexiest voice in the business and does an excellent job with both men and women.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Adrian realized Alexandria was his lifemate.


    Any additional comments?

    Christine Feehan never disappoints! She puts her all in to every book/series she does! Marc Bachmann, as a narrator simply makes me swoon! He is the best!

    "A Wonderful Performance"
    Where does Dark Gold rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd say an 8-9 out of ten. It doesn't top the Phil Gigante/Jane Brown team-ups which is my absolute ten, and there are very few who can challenge that rank. And it's not THE best single-narrator performance I've heard, but it is very, VERY good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Years ago, when I read this book for the first time it was not, I must admit, a favorite. It was good, no argument, but I had just read the first two books in the series, and had found them much more compelling, and it was followed by what is probably my all time favorite of the series, so it did not fare well by comparison.

    Fast forward some years, and past the boom of the paranormal genre with its plethora of plucky, kickass, take-no-crud heroines, and I've come back to this book and found it a breath of fresh air. Alexandria, to me, is a far more relatable heroine.Thrust violently into a situation over which she has no control, her life totally turned upside down, her ability to fulfill her responsibilities to a beloved 6-year-old brother severely compromised, and her ONLY frame of reference for understanding these events being the research she had done on vampires for a particularly gory and violent set of video games and the sadistic SOB who turned her, she does what any normal, rational, strong-minded individual might do.

    She freaks. Badly.

    And I have far more sympathy for Aiden this time around. He seemed a little lacking to me on the first read, but finally realized why. I tend to prefer my heros darker and Aiden isn't. He's not an angst-hero, no tortured past, no deep, dark secrets. He's not sweetness and light either, and he has a distinct streak of arrogance, but really he's just a good man stuck in a terrible situation, trying to do the right thing by his woman.

    Another thing I found refreshing about it this time is the lack of save-the-word syndrome, or everybody's-a-bastard politics. I enjoy world-building as much as the next girl, in fact my other primary preferred genres are sci-fi and fantasy, but sometimes you just want something simple, black and white, good and evil. At its heart, for all the high emotions and drama, this is a quiet book, and a gentle romance.


    What does Marc Bachmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was an excellent choice for this book. Unlike far to many narrators, Mr. Bachmann doesn't simply read the story, he brings it to life, catching just the right tones and rhythms to bring out the drama without going over the top.


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

    Difficult to say. I have insomnia issues and tend to find listening to romances useful for settling my brain down so I can get to sleep, and it can take me awhile to get through a book. On the other hand, I'm sitting here, bleary-eyed, because I finished the last half of this book in one night. Part of that was insomnia, but the other part is because I was enjoying the performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Please, please, please use this narrator in the future for romance productions! He has the right touch for dark-heroic archetypes in the genre, something all too hard to find.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Gold to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I would much rather listen to the audio version than printed version because it seems to come to life more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Aiden was the perfect dream husband. He listened, protected yet did not dominate Alexandria. The author brought alot of Alexandria's parents traits from the first book into her character in this book.


    What does Marc Bachmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marc is very good with the voices. He took some getting use to because the other narrators were women but he did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I just like the entire book. It was a very good pace - not too boring or long, with just the right amount of romance and adventure.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall excellent book.

    "Great story so so narrator"
    What did you love best about Dark Gold?

    I liked the the emotion in this story. I found myself really able to relate to Alex.


    What other book might you compare Dark Gold to and why?

    Dark Prince because I think that Ayden and Meckile both do a good job of listening to their women and compromising.


    What aspect of Marc Bachmann’s performance would you have changed?

    Pretty much all of it.


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

    Yes with a different narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I really wish that Abby Creaton would narrate all the series. He wasn't the worst narrator I have ever heard though.
