Publisher's Summary

Seductive and lethal, vampire Léopold Devereoux returns to the Big Easy to find a killer. His search leads him to a beautiful and mysterious woman who awakens desires and emotions that he's long fought to keep buried. After centuries of self-imposed solitude, the billionaire philanthropist struggles to restrain his growing thirst for the intriguing, lovely female who's captured his attention.

Laryssa Theriot, an antiques proprietor in the Vieux Carré, agrees to help the commanding - yet debonair - stranger who seeks her assistance. She withholds her secret abilities, afraid to trust the man who threatens to unleash her darkest fantasies. All the while, Léopold consumes her thoughts, testing her erotic limits and bringing her to new levels of ecstasy. As the menacing force that has stalked Laryssa for years finally catches up to her, she submits, putting her life into the hands of the dominant vampire who offers his protection.

They embark on a perilous adventure deep in the heart of New Orleans, forced to search for an ancient sacrificial relic that they hope will save their lives. As they face formidable challenges, Léopold and Laryssa surrender to the passionate intimacy that possesses them. After hundreds of years of denying himself love, will Léopold bond to the woman who has begun to crack the impenetrable shell around his heart? As evil draws near, will Laryssa survive the demon that has come to take her soul?

Warning: This audiobook contains several erotic love scenes and is intended for adult listeners only.

    "THE CHARACTERS CAME ALIVE WITH RYAN'S VOICE.. SIGH"

    This is a fantastic series if you're a paranormal romance lover..... Vampires, Were-shifters, Witches, Demons and now, in this entertaining story, yet another 'species' has been conjured up by the very talented Kym Grosso in her new, very imaginative, hot, romantic, funny and exciting plot. The sexy, charismatic and hunky French Master Vampire Leopold, who has turned his back on close friendships for 1000 years, has finally met a woman that can tear down his barriers, isn't afraid of his Alpha 'me a cold and scary Vamp' ways and is a perfect match for his sensual desires (and boy does he have some... Ooo la la!). But Laryssa comes with baggage of her own.... in the form of an evil Demon Stalker wanting to sexually claim her together with her missing magical sacrificial dagger that will allow him to open up the portals of Hell and, if that's not bad enough, he wants her soul too.

    An addictive action packed ride that has a humorous feisty but confused and vulnerable Heroine, a French Vampire Hero who oozes charm, looks and sex appeal also the plot includes characters from previous books who all get involved in the storyline so multiple POV's (but mainly from the H/H's). However, the main star, who made this an awesome listen, is Ryan West as his narration was just perfect.... no matter what personality, nationality or gender he did, he did them all so well and what a gift it is to have a narrator such as Ryan. He made a good book into a great listen and gave all the cast of paranormals larger than life likeable (and dislikable) characters with their ego's, faults, strengths, vulnerabilities, sexy and humorous sides so visualising them, and each scene, was a joy.

    Worth a credit? Yes, absolutely but this is a very sexy listen and not for the unsuspecting listener who shies away from the explicit and downright flirty and dirty sex scenes.... You've been warned.

    "Hot!"

    Great story and very hot! A seriously fun read.. I could not take too many breaks as wanted to know what happened next.
    This is not a story for those offended by well described sexual scenes. Yet for those that are open and love a great paranormal romance, this is right up there with the best!

    "Hot"

    I am going to start by admitting that this is my second read of this novel. the first was not audio and I am so glad I took part in the audio version of this.
    I fell in love with Ryan West through his narration of Kym's first novel and my love has only grown. Ryan just has this way about using his voice to bring to life these intricate characters Kym has developed. His use of accents is awesome, but by far I love his southern drawl.

    As for the story, well, it is awesome. There were so many things that I forgot about that happened in the story and found myself laughing out loud again with the interactions between Dimitri and Leo. Love, love love this Series!

    "Unpredictable"

    Storyline was great however, Larissa's character very whiney and at most times irritating. Loved Leopold very strong, masculine with a little bit of cocky.

    "Absolutely Mesmerizing!"

    Thrilling and mesmerizing, this is a can't put down book. The characters just draw you in and won't let go. Narrator Ryan West as usual does a superb job of transporting you right into the story world, making it real. The epilogue always leads you right into the next book. I very highly recommend this book and the entire must read series.

    "Fast paced, action packed and full of heat"

    First I have to say that I LOVED this narrator. Also, I did come into this series late so, this was my first one. That, however, didn't take away from the story at all.

    Lots of action and lots of heat kept the pages turning. The storyline is good and I loved the characters. I will definitely be checking out other books in this series.

    "Naughty naughty Leopold!"
    If you could sum up Leopold's Wicked Embrace in three words, what would they be?

    Just three?! I would say adventurous, naughty and passionate!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters and their personalities. Kym Grosso did a great job in developing the characters and giving them each their own voice. I liked the friendship between Leopold and Dimitri. The banter back and forth made me laugh.


    Which character – as performed by Ryan West – was your favorite?

    Leopold of course! Ryan West does a great job in getting into character with Leopold. His voice is consistent, steady and clear the whole time.


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

    Yes! The combination of Kym's story and Ryan's performance made this book really enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    Kym Grosso is a gifted author. Her Immortals of New Orleans series is outstanding! The characters are likable, witty and full of passion. Leopold's Wicked Embrace has it all. An alpha male, a passionate female who can take care of herself, and some naughty scenes! I recommend the whole series! You will not be disappointed!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes i would as the book is all action packed, romance, hot hot hot sex. The aurthor is very clever with her words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Leopold's Wicked Embrace?

    I have all the books in this series and was awaiting for Leopolds book to come out. I liked the way he courted Larissa, Patient and very decisive that he wanted her in his life.


    Have you listened to any of Ryan West’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Ryan West is one of My favourite narrators. The way he brings out all the emotions of the characters, the way his voice changes on all the characters. I think he is very Brilliant and talented.

    The book made me laugh sometimes and it was fast paced which i like in My books.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to listen to Audible books driving as My work requires driving a lot, Doing house work. Kym Grosso is becoming one of My favourite authors and i love Ryan West sexy voice.
