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.

Lover of ideas who feels no guilt at all about her pleasures.
Fans of Paranormal Romance and excess in general will find plenty to like about this wild fantasy. Spunky heroine softens the heart of an otherwise rock hard guy who does his best to convince her to join the undead and become his lifemate. Needless to say - he has some very persuasive arguments. I found the romance of unquestioning devotion and fierce protectiveness absolutely irresistable.
Christine Feehan does it again! This book is exciting and you won't be able to stop listening. I recommend it to those who like a thrilling love story edged with danger. After listening to this book - you will have to find all the others available by Christine Feehan. She is the best!! You will not view vampire romance the same ever again. =)
I love this book, but the narrator for this story reads it too slow for me. I love the characters though, and I enjoyed learning more about the Carpathian characters Feehan writes about.
Books make the world go round!
This is the first book I read by this author and I loved it. I thought it was a wonderful love story as well as a little bit of danger. I found the narrator to be wonderfully exhilarating. His deep voice was very romantic. I enjoyed the book and look forward to the next one Dark Demon and even Mind Game though I know its on a different subject. I hope the author will tell us more stories about the Carpathians.
This was a great book! I picked this book because I was going on a long car trip and wanted something to keep my mind occupied. My husband even got into it. This was the first book that I have read from this author and I found myself looking for another. Dark Demon is available and I suggest you get that one also.
The story line became a bit monotonous. The plot for the main character could have been better developed and the sex scenes were a bit over the top. However, I enjoyed the book for the most part.
OK, so I know that this author has a big following, and I'm a fan of vampire fiction and of romance, so I thought why not? What a disappointment. The reader was doing his best to make a tired and trite story interesting, but there wasn't much there to work with. Christine Feehan's prose was far too purple for my taste, and I'm not talking about the sex. She kept going over the same territory again and again, with only slight variations in vocabulary. I found myself rolling my eyes and laughing aloud--and not in a good way! Add to that the "unwilling attraction" cliche taken to the extreme, and it was, overall, distasteful. This may be some readers' bag, but it wasn't mine.
The story was beyond boring and the person who narrated it by the end of the book I couldn't stand how he spoke the lead guys name Raff ielle- is how it sounded. I expected a better story from this author I have read many of her books and was not this disappointed. I couldn't believe what the lead lady had to put up with, I cant imagine anyone tolerating being treated the way the guy treated her.
Im not so sure I would give it another chance
tried a little too hard
I would not read it if it did
Great Book, If you love the Carpathian Novels, then you'll agree with me that this is a great one. I have listened to a lot of the Carpathian novels, through Audible.... This is the first one that I listened to with a male narrator... I didn't think I would mind... But UGH!!! The guy is terrible... Serioulsy AUDIBLE!! Get a BETTER Narrator... PLEASE!!
A great story always enjoy Christine Feehan and the Dark Series. I read the book and thought it was one of the best stories of the series. The thing I don't like is on the audio book is the narrator. He is just plain bad. I do not care for the way he tries to speak like a woman and also his Spainish accent it awful it is almost painful to listen to him read this book. I can only hope this is the last book he did for this series.
