Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Wonderful job"
    What made the experience of listening to Lothaire the most enjoyable?

    Just as the book did - this audio made me crack up at times. I think I've listened to the last chapter and epilogue about a half dozen times.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    Robert Petkoff did a wonderful job with Lothaire - loved the accent and emotion he put into it. He also did well with portraying a character that is losing his grip on his mind. Having read the book prior to getting the audio I was well pleased with this audio.

    Story
    "heroine's voice got on my last nerve!"

    I loved this story. I loved Lothaire. Obviously, some of his actions would be unacceptable if he was human, but he's not. He's thousands of years old and a product of harsh conditions and centuries of living in the lore. Expecting him to act like a man would be foolish. Mild SPOILER ahead! And yet, our heroine, after she had gotten over her fear of him, did just that. But I still loved the book.

    The biggest problem, and one I have to attribute equally to KC and the narrator, is her accent. More mild SPOILERS ahead. Even though Elizabeth spent 5 years in prison where most of the folks she probably encountered were not backwoods mountain folks and she earned a college degree, she continued to talk like she'd just walked off her mountain. This was compounded by the fact that the narrator made her sound like a 14 year old boy. I cringed at her voice through the entire story. But the narrator did an excellent job on all the other voices and I loved his voice for Lothaire. I noticed another reviewer said she had to quit listening the voice was so bad. I almost did a few times, but I'm glad I persisted because later the accent eased sometimes and I still loved the book. I doubt I will ever listen to it again, as I do other books.

    I hope Audible get more of KC's books in this series.

    Story
    "Just didn't do it for me."
    What disappointed you about Lothaire?

    He had too many flaws that didn't resolve themselves (to my expectations) by the end of the book. I didn't fall in love with him, and I feel that to be a good book you should not feel indifferent about the main character(s).


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kresley Cole again?

    Maybe. I've listened to 3 audiobooks by K. Cole and this is the first disappointment.


    What aspect of Robert Petkoff???s performance would you have changed?

    Great acting for the men, but I didn't enjoy the falsetto voice for the women. For me, the falsetto made the experience second rate.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lothaire?

    If I could play editor I wouldn't touch the scenes as much as I would cut the side comments out. It was annoying to hear all the explanations and thoughts going on in their heads. If all that dialog was necessary then the author should have done a better job developing the characters instead of holding our hand throughout the entire story so I know how to feel or how to respond to a situation.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't enjoy reading about a back-woods country girl with a hick accent who finds herself suddenly the queen of a kingdom. Nor, did I find it believable that a blood thursty ruler was just handed a kingdom carte blanche. Didn't this peaceful kingdom have any emotionally stable nobility to fill the position?

    "Great book"

    The narrator was great. The story line was incredible. Like always the narrator can make or break the book.

    Story
    "The Enemy of Old is the MAN!"

    Lothaire is the latest of IAD series and Kresley have done it once again. The series gets better with every book. Robert Petkoff is outstanding with the narration, it added so much live to the characters. Lothaire is such a complex character and has so much going on in his head and Robert was able to convey it all in such an amazing way. The story is brilliant with all the characteristic of her series, witty, funny, hot and steamy, Oh my! Getting to be along the journey of Lothaire and his idea of how his "bride" should be and his reality on how he sees his "bride" its quite a ride. I just wish the other books become available on audio so others can enjoy all the book in the series in order. Kresley Cole is one of my favorites neck and neck with J.R.Ward.

    "From Hate to Love"

    This is a great story. The main character, Lothaire, you hate him at the beginning of the story and as it progresses you start to want him to get the girl. He make you so mad but overtime you are rooting for him to see the light. This has become one of my favorite books and I hope more Kresley Coles books finally come to audible. I am truly looking forward to listening to them all as they come out. Totally credit worthy. Great story, great narrator, great steamy romance. Total package!!

    "Okay ??"

    I'm not sure what to think of this book... I think it could have had the potential to be fabulous but the narration was very poor! Thank heavens the girls white trash accent lessened as the book went along otherwise I couldn't have listened all the way through. Also the story was sort of ridiculous, Lothaire was just a jerk that I just can't see how any girl would fall for him. I wouldn't recommend this, a very big disappointment.
