Enter the enchanting world of the Carpathians, where dark adventure, mystery, and love await, and the desires of two daring hearts unite in one irresistible passion.
A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps to catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks for a vacation far from home.
Mikhail Dubrinsky is the prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. Engulfed by despair, fearful of never finding the mate who can save him from the encroaching darkness, his soul cries out in loneliness - until the day that a beautiful voice full of light and love responds, softly soothing his pain and yearning.
From the moment they meet, Raven and Mikhail are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them. But just as fate unexpectedly brings these life mates together, malevolent forces threaten to destroy them and their fragile love. Yet even if they survive, how can these two lovers - Carpathian and human - build a future together? And how can Mikhail bring Raven into his dark world without extinguishing her beautiful goodness and light?

I have a listening addiction.
a vampire romance novel. big disapointment. no idea it was this drivel before i used my credit. please give my credit back so i can buy a real sci fi book
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Well, I couldn't even get past the first 3 chapters...Don't waste your credit!
The only thing that could have made this a 4 or 5 star rating, would be to start over...
Hola, soy India!
Cliche romance novel. Maybe its the way Abby read the book. Maybe its the way Christine wrote it. But I it made me want to blow my brains out as I listened to it.
A better reader might have helped me finish the book
I usually like this author, but will not buy any read by this person
Tom Stechschulte often reads for this author and does an excellent job
The reader droned through the prose with the sepulchral tones one might expect from a very bad, old-fashioned preacher, but hammed-up the dialogue so that one might feel they were listening to a conversation between "Lurch" and "Tweetie-pie".
If you like your author to repeat themselves over and over for hours unended, this is the book for you. By the time I got to the end of it- I wanted desperately to find the creator of this disaster and slap her senseless. The constant drone of the characters poorly formed romance, under a layer of preternatural guise made me want to vomit. The only reason I finished this book is because I got it for free as my first credit purchase. The readers reviews and ratings are highly dissappointing and I hope to never encounter anything this incredibly awful ever again.
The biggest thing I don't like is the narrator makes Raven seem such a whiny child, she sounds weak and frightened all the time when that is clearly not what she is supposed to be. All the male voices sound like they suffer from asthma. She narrates the story well and has a nice voice, but cannot act the voices well at all.
This is still my favor book series ever and I am listening for the third time in preparation for a couple new stories they have coming out in the next 2 months in the dark series. Really hoping they will be available here on audible, as this membership is by far the most utilized one I have ever done! I don't have time to read, so listening on my daily commute is simply wonderful! This series introduced me to Christine Feehan. And I admit - I am hooked!
The main charterers the guy is pushy which I can deal with but the female lead you just want to slap with how whiny she is through out the whole book. I kept hoping it was going to get better but it didn't. Wow what an annoying waste of time, not my cup of tea.
I hate writing a review like this but I just cant help myself after listening to this drivel.
Not Christine Feehan
Not sure if it was that woman reading that enhanced the whiny tone of the female lead but it couldn't have been more like nails on a chalk board if she tried.
I got nothing
Awful narrative not sure if the sappy sex scenes were worse I had to force myself through this book since I pitched it too far back to return
