For five years, rancher Colby Jansen has been the sole protector of her younger half-siblings, and with fierce determination and work she has kept her family together and the ranch operational. Now, the De La Cruz brothers are threatening that stability. They claim that her siblings belong with their father's family, not with her. Colby vows to fight them - especially the cold and arrogant Rafael De La Cruz. But Rafael is after more than her family; he wants Colby, and will not let anything stand between them. After ages of loneliness, the raw desire to possess her overwhelms his very soul, driving him to claim her as his lifemate.

Raphael is a strong domineering male character without being a mindless brute. I rarely give 5 stars, reserving 5 for books I truly enjoyed beginning to end, without any "but"s. I'm glad this is now in my library, I can see myself returning later to listen again. It's that good.
I love how Christine can not only right a romance book with sex scenes, but the fight scenes as a! They are so suspensful! This has become my absolute favorite thus far. The end had me on the edge of my seat and tears.
Prolific reader. I travel for work, so audible works well for me.
I couldn't finish this book and I have rarely found a book so bad that it wasn't worth finishing. It was terrible. The justification of rape, over and over again just appalled me. The author tried to make rape enjoyable. This story just pissed me off.
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
Novel/novella #15 in the series. The story of Rafael De La Cruz & Colby Jansen. Story is a bit drawm out. First Malinov vampire. "Guest appearances" by Natalya & Vikirnoff - see next book. Narration ok, a few mispronunciations. Piqueña is not pronounced like mckenna, but like pick-kane-yuh...sigh
This is one of my favorites of the dark series. The characters are wonderful, the story flows with vivid details, and the action will keep you listening. The narrative sucks at women voices, as many men do, and he makes a lot of grunts and sighs during the story that is a bit annoying. But he's better than a lot of the narrators and his voice is fairly calming. I guess he just doesn't have what Phil Gigante does, and a woman's voice should be done by a woman. I love the newer books with 2 narrators, especially the most recent dark books. You will still enjoy this book and maybe someday they will re-record it with the great performers I have come to appreciate the last year.
An excellent book!!! These books are so GOOD !!! I can't belive how awesome they all are!!!
