Publisher's Summary

Rafael De La Cruz has spent centuries hunting vampires with his brothers. With each passing year, his capacity to feel emotions has grown weaker and weaker, until finally there's barely a memory of one left - only sheer willpower keeps him from turning into the very abomination he hunts. But it'll take more than will to keep him away from the woman who is meant to be his and his alone.

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.

    "LOVE"

    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.

    "Just awful."
    Would you try another book from Christine Feehan and/or Richard Ferrone?

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "2nd DeLaCruz boy finds his lifemate"

    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

    "easy to listen to"

    Richard Ferrone has a great voice. I like the way he brings the characters to life. As for the book...it is Christine Feehan. I love just about everything she's written

    Story
    "A true carpathian tale"

    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.

    "Dark Secret"

    Great story. This happens to be one of my favorites in the series. Listening to the story adds vivid high lights to what I see in my mind as I listen.

    Story
    "Awesome Read..."

    I loved this book, which surprised me. The book started out kind of slow but you really grow to love Colby, the leading female character.. she is a hard worker, doesn't let no man push her around or use her and deeply loves her brother and sister. She runs a ranch by herself with the help of her younger brother Paul and she loves horses.
    Weird stuff starts happening around the ranch and to make matters worse, her fathers family shows up after many years and wants the ranch and her brother and sister. This is when you meet the main male character, Rafael De La Cruz.
    Murder and mayhem over takes Colby's life and to make matters worse she can't keep her hands or her mind off Rafael. He entangles her in manipulation and takes what was not given to him freely. You hate him.
    Throughout the book I just kept shaking my head and saying.. "there is no way this book can end on a happy note." As things go from bad to worse. BUT, I was happily mistaken. By the end, I saw things in a different light.. as did Colby.
    Give this book a go.. I think you will be happy you did.

    I have enjoyed each book of this series. Richard Ferrone did a wonderful job telling this story. Will be looking for other books where Richard is the narrator.
