Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole continues her electrifying Immortals After Dark series with this thrilling tale, revealing secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals....
All fear the enemy of old.
Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.
A deadly force dwells within her.
Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder - or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.
Centuries of cold indifference shattered.
Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past - or risk everything for a future with her?

Wow! What a fantastic story! I always had a love/hate thing for Lothaire from the previous books. But he truly redeems himself in this one. Robert Petkoff is outstanding in his narration. I've listened to all the books in this series. He does a great job with the different accents and even with the female voices. Highly recommend this one!
Possibly my favorite book ever! I have listened to it over and over again. Ellie Ann Pierce is my type of lead female. She is sassy, smart and resiliant. She doesn't take s@#t from anybody! Lothaire needed a female who could give as good as she got. As ever the writing was fierce and the narration was perfection!! LOVE IT!!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I'm obsessed with the IAD series and I did like this book, but like the last book Lothaire left something to be desired, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he is crazy insane. The biggest redeeming quality of this book is that Ellie didn't put up with all the crap Lothaire was dishing out. I loved the quote "You get more with honey than you do with vinegar and when you run out of both you reach for the buckshot." There was a lot of complaining about the Ellie's accent and how annoying it was. I can tell you that I was so engrossed in the story that it didn't bother me at all and added to the ability to fool people by underestimating her. Still think Robert Petkoff voice is a panty dropper.
I seriously sat on my couch and listened to this instead of watching tv! This is by far the best audiobook I have EVER listened to! Love Lothaire! Definitely should listen to the audiobook before this one first to get a taste of Lothaire.
At the top.
Lothaire - of course!
This book is awesome! Powerful alpha and a feisty female character. I loved it so much I bought the Audible version to listen to it again on my long drives. The narrator nailed it. So far, the best narrator I've listened to.
Sexy, funny at time's and demanding.
None I love romances book but they all seem to be the same, but not this one. I didn't know what was going to happen.
A great narrators. I love that accent.
All in all Lathaire having things his way.
I'm going to buy all Cole book.
Yes in fact I have listened to it twice already.
I love the back woods humor.
I love the way Robert Petkoff changes his voice for different characters. When I listen to him I get a visual of the characters as well as the story.
As the world's most powerful vampire, he was prepared for anything except this mortal: Unexpected Eli.
I love this book. It actually made me like the ruthless Lothaire. I also love love love the humor that Elizabeth's character adds to the story when faced with such a cruel vampire.
I never read the print version.
When she asked him to live in the trailer with her!!! OMG I WAS CRACKING UP!! There were so many more parts. To many to list!
He is AWESOME! I can think of dozens of books that I wish HE had narrated!
This 'Immortals After Dark' series just gets better. I highly recommend this series even though you have to read a couple of the books on Kindle. Thank you Kresley Cole. What an exciting world you have created.
Hearing about Lothaire's past.
When La doranda comes. I won't say anymore because it will give things away
Lothaire. He does an amazing job with his accent.
Yes! I ended up listening/reading it in a day.
