Publisher's Summary

Vanda Barkowski is in trouble. As the owner of a hot nightclub, she's more unconventional than most of her fellow vampires, and if some think her a little out of control, then so be it. But after three former employees filed a complaint about her temper, Vanda is sentenced to an anger-management class. Worse, Phil Jones agreed to be her sponsor. Phil, the mortal who is forbidden to her....

If Vanda knew who - or what - Phil really is, she'd reconsider her attraction to him, for his true nature is wilder than anything she'd ever imagined. He has tackled the beast within and now is the perfect person to help Vanda with her rage... if only he can keep his cool when she makes him so undeniably hot. But with rogue vamps on the loose, will they ever have their forbidden nights?

Bite into another Love at Stake novel.

    "The Vampire Bad girl"

    I have been waiting for Vanda's turn to do the love dance. And who better to tango with than Phil. I enjoyed this story. It had the right amount of tug and pull between Vanda and Phil. There romance was hot ,sassy and sexy. And there were some surprises to boot. I am fan of the Love at Stake series. SO if you like the series you'll like this one. The narrator did a fine job.

    "Lack of consistency because of different narrators"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am really enjoying the series


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    One of the main characters Vanda had an accent in previous books, Gregori is now pronounced as Gregory , Jack, the hero from last book went from French accent to no accent. ........I could go on but I do understand using different narrators but the lack of consistency between books about different character accents is a huge fail!!!!!

    "Overall Story is Great"

    Narrator did not keep up with the character to this point. Her narration left quite a bit to be desired. 90% of the accents for characters were either gone, or awfully done. Big bummer, because this could have been an awesome installment, but was ruined by a bad performance. Again, this series would have been so much better if they could have found a narrator up to the job and stuck with that person. The story itself is great, and moves the series plot along, and the main characters are interesting.

    Story
    "Bad narrator, failed to pronounce names correctly"
    What disappointed you about Forbidden Nights with a Vampire?

    The narrator could not pronounce all the foreign names correctly
    example Gregori (Greg-gore-i) is NOT pronounced Gregory
    She also had a difficult time when she switched from female voices to male voices, in other words all the characters came out sounding like females. This was a bit odd considering some of the characters are Scottish Highland warriors.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The narrator should have listened to past performances from this same series to get an idea of how to pronounce all the characters names correctly


    How could the performance have been better?

    The only way to improve this narrator is to replace her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Forbidden Nights with a Vampire?

    I started this series and have enjoyed each book. it grows on one main story and involves characters from book to book. However, it has been difficult to keep my head in this story from book to book since the narrator's keep changing


    Any additional comments?

    It would be nice if Audible actually read this and realized when they're dealing with a story from a series, the narrator should be cast and kept from book to book to ensure the readers enjoyment

    "Liked the story but not the narrator."

    I was not able to get into this book as much as others because of the narrator. One of the biggest fails of this narrator was that Wanda had an accent and sounded like a tough cookie in other books but her version made her sound like a timid, whiney girl. Also, Jack, the main character from the last book had an accent and his name was pronounced differently but in this book he had no accent. I would still recommend the book if you like the series.

    "enjoyed the story not the narrator"
    Where does Forbidden Nights with a Vampire rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the story and while it was not my favorite of the series it held my interest.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the meshing of the supernatural worlds


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She made everyone sound like they were 5 years old. I got the impression that the charactors were whinny and dependent and having read and listened to the other books in the series I know thats not the case


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

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a good book that moved the story line along
