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 ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
I think this is the book that Snoopy spent so many years typing out as he sat on top of his dog house.
On the old SCTV series, the actor Joe Flaherty used to play a cheesy vampire character named Count Floyd, who spent most of his time trying to convince the audience that something totally silly was actually quite "scarrrrrry" and wiggling his eyebrows. I think the author had Count Floyd in mind when she created these characters. If she tried to make the book sound scary, it might disguise the fact that it was silly.
Unfortunately it doesn't work this way. Making the narrator speak slowly and ponderously doesn't help either.
Silly book. I didn't finish it.
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...

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.
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.
Ok, was not sure I was really going to like the idea of (Carpathians)! Lol I love romance and have for decades, I wanted more spice! Well, Christine Feehan gave me just what I wanted! I was actually talking to the book!!! Lol
If you are an older woman, want more mystery and spice, take a chance get this book! You will not be disappointed!
I usually love these types of books but I just could not get through this. I listened to over an hour of this book and it just left me feeling bored and no attachment to any characters.

In some ways it is as we get to listen to the story and imagine it in our minds! The book on the other hand is just as good in its way as well.
Raven Whitney was my favorite character, as she was beautiful but so strong-strong enough to stand up to the Prince of the Carpathian people. I also loved Mikhail the prince as he was so enamored of Raven-she was a gift he had waited centuries for!
I really liked Abby's performance-this was the second audio book I bought of Dark Prince and it was so much more, her voice distinguished between all of the characters really well, and I just love the way she read it!
I listened to this book in two sittings as I did not have time, but if I could I would have loved to listen to it all in one sitting!
I really loved this audiobook it is one of my favorites of all the books I have bought over the past couple of years, and I know I will listen to it again!
The heroine annoyed me she kept insisting she was smart and strong. I never felt it from her. She consistently freaks out wasting so much energy, isn't she psychic? Also the whole Carpathian thing they seemed to be weak every time they fought it made them weak and they had to go underground for healing, they spent more time sleeping and healing. I'm gonna stick to with the series it does have potential. Fingers crossed for book #2
