Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Night Huntress series comes a breathtaking new journey to the dark side of desire.

The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows—her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield—and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family’s past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness—and a demon shape-shifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who lusts for a taste of her.

He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human—even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the nightmare together, because once the first crimson drop falls, they will both be lost.

    "Jeaniene hits another home run"

    Although I swore I wouldn't get into the whole Vampire thing with my reading, these are must hear. Yeah, some vampires abuse their power, but they do police their own. The Night Huntress series stole my imagination, as half vampire, half human Kat tries to kill all the vampires (her mom was raped by a newly made vampire before his ability to reproduce was completely dead) and ends up falling in love with and mating with a master vampire. In this book, Spade, one of their best friends falls in love with Kat's best friend while trying to help her escape a demon who her ancestor escaped from. Once nobility in England, Spade has all the manners bred into the English Gentlemen, with a killer streak not to be missed. Tavia Gilbert does an excellent job with this exciting and quick paced story.

    "Good story line ruined by too much romance."

    I love the night huntress series but when I tried to listen to this one I feel like I am left out. There are many listeners like myself who like supernatural novels and enjoy character development but are tired of most vampire books being soft porn. Don't get me wrong, this is a good book it's just that I was expecting more then love stories from the “Night Huntress World”. I get the impression that the author decided to do short story romance and is leveraging their good writing skills to force a story line around it. I cannot emphasize enough that the narrator is excellent and Jeaniene Frost's writing is far better then most. The problem is that this book crossed that thin line to where you have to say it's just a romance. Besides the night huntress and this one I am also listening to “A Night Prince Novel” with Vlad which I do think is more in line with the balanced romance/action/mystery I was looking for when I tried this one. I already bought “Eternal Kiss of Darkness" just in case I am being overly critical. We will see.

    "Repeat Performance"

    Almost the same story as Kat and Bones. The narrator is great at sounding like a spoiled, wining little brat. At times it was hard to continue to listen to the story.

    "Jeaniene Frost books"

    I am thrilled with Jeaniene Frost's books and I cant seem to get enough of them.. The narrater Tavia Gilbert does a fabulous job of making you feel like you are sitting and watching a movie not listening to a book. I highly recommend the Night Huntress World and The Night Huntress Series. Just love them. A very satisfied listener.. :)

    "Just as GREAT as the Night Huntress Series LOVE IT"

    Read the Night Huntress series first, all 5 of them so you will understand this spin off book. I listened after book 4 and it was just too soon. If you love the other series, you will love this as the characters still interact with each other. Just super, pulls you in, keeps you, and wont let you go. Worth the credit or worth the money. Definitely will listen to more than one time.

    "Disappointing"

    Cat and Bones are my favs so I thought this new series would be just as good. It was very disappointing. I didn't finish the book. I absolutely couldn't stand the main female character Denise. She was so whiny and annoying. There was no chemistry between Denise and Spade. Why would he fall for her? It was a waste of a credit.

    "Excellent!"

    This series is addicting!!! Highly recommended. The plot is intricate, characters compelling and narration superb. I often forget that I have not seen these in a movie format because once you begin listening you are immediatly emersed into the world of the night huntress - Thank you Jeaniene Frost for sharing your gift.
