Ha'ven Ha'darra is the Crown Prince of the Curizans, an advanced species known for their technology. They may not have the power to shift like the Valdier or the Sarafin, but they have hidden powers of their own that they closely guard. Not even his best friends, Creon Reykill of the Valdier or Vox d'Rojah of the Sarafin, are aware of the powers he holds within his deadly frame.
Ha'ven is happy to help out his Valdier friend when he calls. There are only two things that satisfy the restlessness inside him - a good fight and an even better evening with a hot, willing female. He has no desire to settle down like his two friends have. He enjoys having his freedom and the wide sample of females at his disposal.
All of that changes when he catches a glimpse of the delicate beauty who looks through him as if he doesn't even exist. His blood calls to her, his magic aches to meld with hers, but she blocks his every advance.
Emma Watson's life was perfect. Her love for music and dance let her escape the overwhelming shyness that she suffered from all her life. When she is invited to travel with a group to South America, she believes it is the perfect chance to discover who she can really be. Everything changes when she is kidnapped by a powerful drug lord. Beaten and forced to watch the torture and murder of other women, she withdraws into the world she feels safest - the one inside herself.
When she is rescued by creatures not of this world, they heal her physical wounds, but cannot touch the ones deep inside her. She has given up on ever returning to her world and has little hope for the future. No woman has ever turned Ha'ven Ha'darra down and he isn't about to accept his mate doing it. Now, he just has a few extra problems to overcome. Her Valdier protectors have given him six months to change her mind about wanting to return to them. Can he unlock her magic in time to save their love or will the traitor, determined to kill them, destroy her before he can?

I have not read the print version. But I have to say that the voice performance was not as good as David Brenins. Instead of a sexy alien, I heard cavemen. The story was wonderful, but the men did not come off as passionate warriors. They came off as Neanderthals. I did enjoy the story, but i would have enjoyed it more with the sexy accents Mr. Brenin infused.
It was hard to have a favorite character, because most of the voices came off as primitive beings.
For the story, yes. For the performance, no.
I am addicted to these books they are all so Amazing but this one has a new narrator and he's changed all the voices and not in a good way. The book is one of the best and I can't wait for the next one, however please bring back the original narrator she is so good plus she makes the story come come to life. Still the book was outstanding!!!!
Over 60 years old. Still working in the same company for 42 years. Love listening to books.
The story was very good, enjoyed it greatly. So far I have listened to it 2 times.
Too many to just pick one. I felt for Emma, but I felt more for Ha'ven. His struggle was epic.
I think Ha'ven was my best character.
Well I would love to say any book deserves to be listened to in one setting, but life interferes.
The narrator was pretty intense and forceful and sometimes came across as angry, he just needs to tone it down and feel the characters more.
Loved the story but really didn't enjoy the naration it took me everything to follow and finish the story. Everything about the narator in the story felt fake or exagerated in an unpleasant way. The female voice the mâle narator took seriously annoyed me
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
Read this SES story after the Dragon Lords series & Choosing Riley, the first of the Sarafin princes. They're all linked together with shared characters & story lines. Ochlan was ok, but would have loved consistency of David Brenin.
I was so use to David being the reader and I got a new guy and was to pissed. But S E Smith did it again. This is my first author who has tied several series together and I can't wait until the next book comes out.
Although, P.J. Ochlan did an awesome job, I still missed David Brenin. Great story tho!!
"OK but not for me"
I haven't read any of this series before and I wont again. It's not me.
I realise now that it is an offshoot of 'Dragon Lord of Valdier'. Saving women from evil and them falling completely in love with their rescuers.
In this story Emma Watson is recovering from PTSD, she is kidnapped and falls for her abductor.
I read to the end but I won't be buying any more of these books, they are just not me.
