Dark Secret: Dark Series, Book 15

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.

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.

    Story
    "Dark Series - Dark Secret...AWESOME"
    What did you love best about Dark Secret?

    Christine Feehan has done it again! She grips you from the first few sentences, and keeps you enthralled until the last word. You really can envision the characters, the battles they face, and the passion they exude. You won't be disappointed by this amazing author.


    What other book might you compare Dark Secret to and why?

    Any other book in the Dark Series. Feehan matches warrior with life mates every single time, and never in a cheesy way, but always with a great ending.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He provides great inflections and intonations.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, we women are stubborn and know how to push buttons. I love to hear the men get exasperated and come up with a funny retort.

    Only as part of the series.

    Least favorite of the series.


    What three words best describe Richard Ferrone’s voice?

    Irritating, repetitive, inconsistent.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The heroine is extremely irritating in this book. Don't judge the series by this book!

    "Here we go Again!"

    Christine Feehans books are remarkable. They combine imagery, emotion, complexity, and darkness in such a loving way. There is no other for me that can write a paranormal book this way all her books including this one are intriguing. Rafael de la Cruz and Colby Jansen are compeling characters who do not let adversity stand in their way and are both extremely stubborn which makes for an interesting read. The ancient language and the code of natural healing along with the idea of a community coming together almost seems like something we should emmulate today. I only wish that men were as caring and concerned as Feehan's character are but not as bossy and controlling. Yet Feehan is not stingy in the sexual erotic area. These couples are highly sexual! They might even make you quiet hot under the collar. The stories all generally follow the same plot with some variations but it's always nice to see what new setting or situation is going on. Each book links them in some way to the previous ones but Feehan does not dwell too much on the previous characters unless it is in some way an integral part of the story. Her books are always good reads.

    "Dark Series"

    It is amazing to think that Christine Feehan has created an entire world filled with both vampires and the race of beings that can become vampires. The fact that the male Carpathians are so in tune with their feelings, once they have them, makes the stories compelling. Be ready for some seriously erotic scenes. Not a frightening series. It is wonderful the way the series builds upon the characters book after book.

    "not this time"

    i have purchased about 10 of these books. I was drawn in, mostly by the new twist on vamps. the concept of the "carpathian" is pretty good. the intimate stuff was hotttt...(the first time) honestly it gets old...but i come back for the rest of the story. I get in to the individual storylines of each of the members of the race.
    this time, however, I dont care. De La Cruz is an ass. for awhile there i thought this would be the first tragedy ending for a carpathian. I can not be convinced. in the other books, the slow coming around of the woman can be imagined and as much i want to slap these chicks sometimes, it still seems to work. not this time. the rest of the story is good but the relationship between colby and de la cruz should end with a nice walk in the sun.

    "Dark Secret"

    Dark Secret was my first Christine Feehan book and first "dark series" I read. I can not get enough and eagerly await her next book. If you like the paranormal and vampire type books with lots of romance, you will love this book. I can not wait to have all her books on audio. I love the Ghostwalker and Drake Sisters series also.

    "OK but not Great"

    I feel that this book although it does involve several dark hunters, does not have the intensity of most of the others. It is OK, but not one of Ms. Feehan's best.
