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?

    Story
    "Wow, Hot and Steamy and well written too."

    Ok, so this book is the classic form of: vampire meets girl, vampire distains girl, vampire lusts after girl, and the poor girl is just trying to keep up. Actually the plot is more complete than boy meets girl. There are additions to the plot line and complications along the way. I think this is well written and the sex scenes are STEAMY. Just what I am looking for in a romance novel. I cannot rave enough about the narrator Robert Petkoff. The combo of Cole and Petkoff is a stellar pairing.

    "Fantastic!"
    What did you love best about Lothaire?

    I just love Lothaire as a character, he's evil and has a wicked sense of humor.


    What other book might you compare Lothaire to and why?

    I can't really compare Lothaire to any other book. He's the hero of the tail, but he's also the villan.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Absolutely love Robert Petkoff's performances in all the of Immortal After Dark books he has read. He really makes all the characters come to life.


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

    Yes! If I could have I would have listened to the book in one sitting but, alas, life interfered.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely fantastic books to read and listen to, I so hope the rest of the series comes to audible soon!

    "Oh Boy!!! This was delicious!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've already reccommend this book and the enitre Immortals series!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lothaire?

    the Loveseat. Anybody who reads this book and does not remember the scene on the loveseat...DID NOT READ THIS BOOK.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've heard a couple of his other readings...In this one, the heat and power and sensuality of Lothaire streamed right out of the headphones. Robert Petkoff makes Lothaire.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Even 'Pure Evil' can be tamed by love.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll let you know when I read/listen to the rest of the Immortals series...this was my first. I'm ready.

    "Boring !!!"

    I expected better from this author. Story dragged and I didn't like the reader. I had to force myself to finish this book. I think Ms. Cole needs to get back to basics. I think sex is great in a book, but there has to be a reason that it is relevant. I felt that Lothaire was a wining child at times, the story dwells too much on his bad past. If I were looking for a sexy, strong vampire hero, it wouldn't be him, he would make me crazy.

    "Hilarious!"

    Kresley Cole has sold me! the book is very FUNNY granted one must get pass the first 3 hours, it has a slow build but is necessary to the story. When Ellie starts her hillbilly talking I cracked up "that mouth of Yorns" and "I rode you like a lazy horse and made you cream jeans" Some said it was too long, what couples you know just make up instantaneous over a little misunderstanding of almost beheading?? It also brings in the world of Ivana's (Lothaire's mother) people she was looking for and telling him about at the beginning of the story. GET IT! you will not be disappointed

    "A unique story worth listening to..."
    Would you listen to Lothaire again? Why?

    Yes. The story is surprisingly unique. I like the fact that the author explains the backstory of the main characters, it helps listeners understand were the characters are coming from-- their motivations, beliefs and actions.


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

    Yes- but it is too long to do so...


    Any additional comments?

    I like the story -- it's not predictable and the author is very good at story telling, It's easy to get lost in the story, and it keeps the listener wondering what will happen next.

    Story
    "Spellbinding!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lothaire the most enjoyable?

    Robert Petkoff really brought the characters to life. Kresley Cole's story of Lothaire is one of her best stories in the Imortals After Dark Series. I must admit I only have the other stories in ebook format but I think A Hunger Like No Other is also in audiobook format and also read by Robert Petkoff, I will be putting that one on my wishlist for purchase. If you like the other stories in this series, you'll love this one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ellie Ann was my favorite character simply because she was a strong female and she knew how to roll with whatever life threw at her. She was a very likeable character. Nix is also one of my favorites, I hope she gets her own story soon.


    Which character ??? as performed by Robert Petkoff ??? was your favorite?

    I loved Petkoff's representation of Ellie Ann. I have read other comments about the horrendous accent used by the narrator but It was realistic. She was from the Appalachian Mountains, that's what the people from that region sound like. I thought it was awsome. Lothaire's Russian representation was also very realistic and authentic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When LaDorada was used to get rid of Saroya and she realized she had brought about her own downfall.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Valkyries. Their frat house environment is one of the best things about the IAD Series. They make being a girl fun. I want to live in Val Hall.

    "Great Story and Great Narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The story is epic coupled with a narrator who read the book and sounded as sexy as the characters were portrayed by the descriptions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lothaire, of course!


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, this one is even better than the first one. Robert Perkoff's performance is outstanding. He's very versatile, especially with all the different accents he had to use with the different characters. The listener can actually determine which character is which.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh and cry, it's a roller coaster of a ride! Very fun.


    Any additional comments?

    More, please with Robert Petkoff as narrator!
