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 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...
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
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.
I love books that take a different spin on vampires. Especially ones that leave the dark evil vampires but then have others of a different race that are similar but more good guys. I love books set in the Carpathian mountains, and I love strong heroines, this should make it that I would love this book. I didn't. I enjoyed it and it has a excellent story to it. I found I enjoyed it greatly with two exceptions. There were several area where I found myself saying "get on with it all ready" at these places the descriptions were long, detailed and unnecessary. And secondly there was the Strong Heroine, modern day independent woman, with the ability to read minds. This should be awesome. Strong and independent does not = stupid, and a strong & intelligent woman does not disobey in very stupid ways, when they know it could mean their life, especially a woman so adept and reading minds and yet so naive and stupid about the gravity of human nature. She was not believable in the least. I could see her arguing and being pissy, but not going off and doing stupid things just to prove she was independent and strong, and every single time nearly getting herself and the man, she will do anything to keep happy, killed. Also she tracks serial killers for the police and yet she blatantly by thought and yet she constantly misjudges everyone's actions and thoughts and defends them because "they can't be evil". I really had issues with this woman. If she had been made slightly stronger and less whinny I would have enjoyed this story to the fullest, for the story behind the Carpathians and Vampires is EXCELLENT
Would have liked Raven to be a bit stronger as a character.
Jack has just the perfect fit of bad boy, sweet and sexy. Will enjoy seeing him find his lifemate.
Good naration and performance.
Sure. Get more of the series.
A plot, likable characters, less stupid sex scenes. It is the worst book I have gotten through audible so far. i am amazed that it was published at all and that audible chose to record it. Shame on everyone.,
Character development. Editing.
Raven had a simpering, annoying voice.
All of them
this has encouraged me to write a book of my own since I see that anything can get published. I resent that you wasted my money and my time.
I don't like to talk badly about any authors work as I know they put a lot of time and effort into their stories. This seemed to have potential but as I listened, this story never really caught my attention. I like passionate stories where you can feel the emotions of the characters and I didn't get any of this from the characters in this story.
The Heroin in this story seemed weak although she was trying to portray her as strong. I couldn't see her this way. It didn't help that her husband, mate, whatever he was to her saw her as fragile and weak. I would have liked to see a stronger female role.
The narrators voice was great except when she portrayed the heroin. Although I guess it was fitting as the heroin did seem whiny and weak and that is what the narrator portrayed. Her voice became so irritating whenever it was the Heroin's part. I didn't finish the book.
Honestly I don't believe in cutting scenes from a book. It could play some importance later on.
I have read a Christine Feehan book before and enjoyed it and that was why I picked this book. I wanted to start with the first of the series. I'm having second thought's about reading this series though. I was going to give it until the third book to decide if I would continue with the series but I don't want to feel like I'm wasting credits. We'll see.
