Bestselling author Kresley Cole continues her seductive Immortals After Dark series with this tale of a vampire shunned even by his own kind and a beautiful phantom, bound together by a passion they cannot resist.A RAVEN-HAIRED TEMPTRESS OF THE DARK...
Néomi Laress, a famous ballerina from a past century, became a phantom the night she was murdered. Imbued with otherworldly powers but invisible to the living, she haunts her beloved home, scaring away trespassers - until she encounters a ruthless immortal even more terrifying than Néomi herself.
A VAMPIRE WARRIOR CONSUMED BY MADNESS...
To prevent him from harming others, Conrad Wroth's brothers imprison him in an abandoned manor. But there, a female only he can see seems determined to drive him further into madness. The exquisite creature torments him with desire, leaving his body racked with lust and his soul torn as he finds himself coveting her for his own.
HOW FAR WILL HE GO TO CLAIM HER?
Yet even if Conrad can win Néomi, evil still surrounds her. Once he returns to the brutality of his past to protect her, will he succumb to the dark needs seething inside him?

So many books...so little time! :)
Just when you think all hope is lost for Conrad, who has become mad during his years as a vampire and is being held against his will by his brothers in the hopes of improving...Conrad starts to see ghosts, but not just any ghost...
Enter Neomi, who was horribly murdered many many years ago, and is forced to live with it everyday of her ghostly and very lonely life while she watches the lives of the living around her...that is until Conrad, the first human, or vampire that is, sees her.
As they keep each other company in the house they are both trapped in, they are given a second chance with each other...or do they?...
Again, Kresley Cole has such a way of bringing opposites, or not so opposites it may seem, :) together and throws in a few twists that will have your mind spinning! While, this wasn't my favorite, I still really enjoyed it and got a new appreciation for Conrad, who really seemed like a lost cause. Maybe it is possible that people, or vampires, can change after all. ;)

love Nix in all of them
each character has their own 'vioce'
all of the books are a great read and great to listen to. hope she writes more, then more to audible.
One of the best I've ever read!
This is one of the most exciting vampire stories among several others I've listened to.
Petkoff brought each character to life. He's a consummate narrator creating the voices and images perfectly. I'd read any book he narrates.
Kresley Cole is a wonderful vampire story teller creating characters and images that come to life. I've downloaded several of her books, but this is so far the best.
I love to multi-task with Audible!
I love his voices, each charactor is distict and unique to themselves. It was easy to follow the dialog.
Book 4 in the series, and loved it!
I love these characters, their wit and personalities, the stories and the narration. I'm so glad I found this series!
Love the lore. Vampires, demons and lykae, oh my!
Kresley Cole NEVER disappoints. Every book takes you on a separate journey - yet the stories are so beautifully intermingled you feel like you're seeing old friends again.
Poor Conrad he is the black sheep of the Wroth brothers. Which is hard to be because they are vampires. Make no mistake he has earned his badness. I believe next to our #1 vampire of all time Lothaire. Conrad could easily be the 2nd most dangerous vamp in the Lore.
In walks Neomi who is a classy ballerina and temptress who happens to be a ghost. Poor Conrad he's already crazy does he need to see ghost too? Yes he does because no one else can calm him down and his brothers can't do it.
This is one of the deepest love stories in KC's series so far. It's fun because we get to have some more of Nix and Meriketa who play major rolls in a lot that goes on the Lore. It's also good to finally get all the brothers Wroth together in one place for a minute.
Book & History Enthusiast
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!
Very near the top of my list.
The other IAD books.
His rich voice that draws you in from the start. The man is amazing. I hope they pay him lots and lots of money so that he can devote all his time to reading books.
When Conrad convinces his brothers that he is NOT mad and that he needs to save his bride. They believe him and help to find Neomi.
I enjoyed this book a lot. I liked the smaller cast of characters and a simpler storyline. I loved the fact that Neomi was a human turned ghost turned.................! Not saying. I do not want to ruin it for you. Well worth the money.
