Anne caught her husband cheating with the maid of honor before their wedding cake was cut. She decided to take her planned and paid for honeymoon in Tuscany, alone. On the evening of what was to be her wedding night, she gets bitten by a female vampire.
Marcus Monteleone has waited 300 years to find his fated female, only to discover her dying in his arms. He saves Anne's life by turning her, and then works to gain her trust, to cope with being a newly-formed golden vampire.
But when Anne finds out Marcus has not been completely truthful about his past, she vows to live as a human, and shuns the vampire world. Alone and unprotected, she falls prey to the very villainess who took her human soul, and who now takes the only man she’s ever loved.
Which lover will have to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the other before they both are lost?

It's different to my usual SEAL books from Sharon's mighty pen but I enjoyed it all the same! There was a lot of information in there which I felt needed more pages to delve deeper into each one, but I'm guessing that's where book two - Mortal Bite will lead me! I only like a few of the Vampire stories like Tina Folsom's Scanguards and obviously the Twilight Saga, but I'm glad to say that Sharon didn't disappoint in wetting my appetite with her rendition of the immortal world!
I really am looking forward to the second in the series as I now need to know how this continues.
It's not so easy to change from one topic to another but Sharon is obviously versatile enough to pull it off!
Again and again JD gives an amazing performance. He's not just a narrator, he's an actor through and through and he lives it through his portrayal of the characters.
I've grown accustomed to his voice and as soon as the reproduction begins I'm transported into the scene and am a silent member of the audience enjoying the unfolding of yet another really good story.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Let me just say get your shower ready, put it on COLD and be ready !! This book is full of Hot Sex - you've been warned... I loved how the vampires are different in this story they are not your average burn in the sun, twinkle like Twilight’s Edward and go around wreaking tons of havoc around the world. Anne is not a vampire slayer in this book which I also liked. I actually even like how Anne becomes a vampire...
How Anne reacts and what she does after becoming a vampire are very well written and you can feel what she is going through as she changes and no it isn’t rip their heads off and drain all their blood leaving behind a slew that mangled dead bodies either. I like how Marcus comes into her life from all of this to guide her for reasons I wont tell (spoiler lol) but like a typical man forgets that women need to know everything and you cant keep parts of it out so yeah he mucks that up. But I promise all will be alright...
The sex scenes are truly amazing.. they are super Hot – nuff said there right... But I must say that with J. D. Hart's sexy voice one can't help but Drool, a lot...
The ending had me on the edge of my seat I was like OMG no way this can not be happening but it was and well all I can say is hurry and get the book and find out what happens to Anne and Marcus... :)
I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
I loved this story. It is a little different take on the vampire but I loved it all the same. The narrator has a very sexy voice and did well with the character voices. This story was easy to follow and hard to put down!
"To Thy Known Self Be True"
Delicious, Hot, Romantic
There is no comparison.
Marcus Montaleone. He was sexy, omniscient, compelling and made my ears tingle with delight.
When Marcus took the wrap for Anne.
I love listening to romantic stories like this when they come to life in my ears.
yes I would cause the audio is even better than the print and that book was awesome
Listening to JD Hart bring Marcus's voice to life
When Anne and Marcus finally get to have sex
Yes but couldn't due to time factor
Complexed, Entertaining, Original
He was wonderful. Made the characters stand out better then others I've listened to.
This is a very well written love story with some good vampire characters. Good interplay between all the cast members. Even though this may be the first book of a series, it is a self-contained story. I can see where other characters can play off this book and have their own stories written. I love the HEA concept and what lengths people or vampires will go to insure the safety of their loved one or true mate. I loved the concept that all children born from vampires have the choice to either stay human as there are born or become a vampire. New and very original concept in a vampire book. I was given an audible book by the author thru a book party. This is one of the first audible books that I felt was done very well by the narrator. Most could use two voices, one man and one woman. This narration did not need that.
Yes! I would listen to it again and again just to hear JD's voice as he portrays Marcus!
This is the first time I listen to JD, but it won't be my last!
There were too many to mention, cannot single out just one.
I felt their emotions swirling around me as the narrator worked his way through chapter after chapter of this fantastic story. I actually think I swooned!
books are my drug of choice :D
Exciting, awesome, true love story
A very different vampire story, lots of twist I didn't see coming and a HEA :D
Many scenes caught my attention, but I think at the end where Marcus and Ann were in the vineyard is the happiest.
Love is powerful and always wins!
I loved the storyline, very different from any others in the vampire genre, the story didn't stop, no awkward or blah moments. It kept me listening waiting to find out what happened next. Very emotional, it was an emotional roller coaster ride. I laughed, I sure cried, I got mad too :D Loved the narrator's voice, I call it the chameleon voice. Doing all those accents, personalities and genders speaks of talent. Thank you for a great experience.
Not better... the book is fabulous, but the audible just adds to it and makes it even more powerful
I have been a PNR fan from way back... Ms. Hamilton makes the story and characters truly believable.
I think that JD Hart does an amazing job or narrating for Sharon. He brings the books and stories to life!!.
There are many points in the book that moved me... both to tears and laughter. Loved this series and can't wait for the next issue.
Ms. Hamilton is an extremely gifted author. Those that have not read her books are definitely missing out. I highly recommend anything Ms. Hamilton writes.
i would definitely listen to it again i throughly enjoyed the story and JD Harts incredible sensual accent made me nearly swoon
Marcus, he was an exceptionally sensual vamp
I've listen to several of JD Hart audio performances and this one is as good as all the rest
Romantic - Sensual - Addictive - Love story
I enjoyed this so much with the sensual love story and JD Hart exceptional accent it made me go back and listen to some of my favourite scenes.
