Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time… the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs - and time is running out.

Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina - stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge - and the only woman who could help him.

In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory… but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

This is the first book in Royal House of Shadows. The Quartet features new books from some of the biggest names in paranormal fantasy romance: Gena Showalter, Jill Monroe, Jessica Andersen, and Nalini Singh. Listen to a new book in the series every month, from now through November.

    "Good story but..."

    The voice of Nicoli is horrible! The narrators voice of Jane is great but the voice of the male lead in a racy novel HAS to be alpha, sexy, and sweet when needed. The male voice here greatly took away from the narrative. Again, good narration of all characters except male lead.

    "Horrible narration! Where is Max Bellmore!?"
    Would you try another book from Gena Showalter and/or Genvieve Bevier?

    I loved Lords of the Underworld. I read them all but after reading this book I won't bother with any other books by Showalter. This one was terrible. I wish the narration was done by Max Bellmore! I think it would have made a big difference.

    Story
    "Don't waste a credit"
    What disappointed you about Lord of the Vampires?

    Don't know why this story has as many stars as it does - the narration is so bad it is impossible to get past the weird cadence to hear the story.


    Has Lord of the Vampires turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No,


    Would you be willing to try another one of Genvieve Bevier’s performances?

    This is the second audiobook this narrator has ruined for me. I'll be more careful in the future

    "Story would have been good ,but"

    The story was good or I would have enjoyed it more , but the narration was really bad
    if the narrator can't do the voice then fine , don;t try it ruins the book
    the male voices were real bad and the accents if that what they were suppose to be were even worse
    I liked the story and and Gena Showalter is one of my favorite authors, it just wasn't the enjoyable listen it could have been

    "Really hot!"

    While I love the Lords of the Underworld series, this was pretty great. Although really, anything Gena writes is worth reading (listening, whatever!).

    Story
    "Story "So so" - Narrator "Not so much""

    Gena, Gena, Gena what on earth happened?! Yikes! "Mine" "My woman/man" Really? I could swear you know better than this. The narrator. uggghhh what can I say. She reads the Eugenie Markham Series with Richelle Mead and it is fine. Every male character in this story sounded horrible - how could you listen to the daily takes and think, "Yeah, this lead guy needs to sound just like the ogres and dimwitted throughout the entire book." I know everyone knows better than this including the production staff. I listen only to audiobooks so I am absolutely sure everyone could have done a better job. I speak from the experience of enjoying all of Gena's other stories, other narration by Genvieve and listening to better production from the publisher.

    Story
    "Too Hot!!!!"

    This book made me blush majorly. I had to use head phones to listen to it, as I couldn't allow others to hear exactly what I was listening to. It goes beyond literary soft porn. It gets pretty detailed and graphic during the intimate scenes. I prefer some things to be left to the imagination. Outside of the graphic nature, the story is pretty good. It is written in typical showalter style. You know.... "she is mine", "i need to mark her" type stuff. I was hoping she would change it up a little. Imagine one of the Lords of the Underworld with fangs. The narration was pretty good. The narrator is female, and the male voice she used sort of made the main character sound unintelligent. The book starts a little slow, but give it a chance and you will become wrapped up in the story. It does make me want to read the next one in the series.
