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?

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Well I've just finished this fantastic book and I feel it was well worth losing a weekend over. It had everything - hot handsome sexy vampire, good story, great narrator, steamy love scenes and of course romance - what more can you ask for.
Never stop writing Kresley and let's have more books by her on Audible please please please 'cause there's a chunck of books missing in the series.
This book ranks right at the top of my book list!!!
I have listened to the narrator befor and love his performance. His voice is SOOOO SEXY....yummmmm.
I love Kresley Cole, and absolutly am in love with this series. I am over joyed that there making them into audio books. Its worth every penny you spend. It is laught out load funny. The books are writen so, so well, and the narration is so well done. This seriers is a BIG FAT 5 all across the board...Enjoy every second <3 <3 <3
Dark Needs at Night's Edge, maybe I'm just a sucker for bad boys that you gotta love! Their behavior can be "horrible", but when you find out what makes them that way, your heart breaks with them.
He is the best male author I have listened to this far.
I laughed, cringed, held my breath, cried and sighed.
This book seemed full. With a little bit of everything that has happened since the start. Because of that you have a lot of back story that's interesting but it adds on to the prior stories from a different view. Totally worth the wait..
passionate reader and vegan
This will be short and sweet as all I need to do is tell you to read ANY of my Audible reviews on Ms. Cole's Immortals After Dark books and you'll pretty much get the picture. Ms Cole is a brilliant character-maker, plot-developer, culture creator and humorist. This book absolutely slayed me with the female lead..Elizabeth. She was one the funniest, most challenging and smartest females Ms Cole has developed yet...right up there with Regin the Radiant and my favorite of all, Nucking Futs Nix.
As for the narration....they don't come any better than Mr. Petkoff. His Elizabeth was so well done, I could have sworn she was right in the room with me.
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
Fantastic characters and a great plot, Kelsey Cole has an awesome imagination! I enthralled with her world and her characters. This is a great series that gets better and better.
Robert Petkoff your voices are truly magnificent!
Guys this one is worth 2 credits!!!
Never read the print version, but if the audio is anything to go by, the print in my opinion would pale in comparison, but I was sold hook line and sinker on the audio because Robert Petkoff did justice in bringing this book alive and carried you to places you wouldn't have imagined possible with his narrating skills. His character voices are very sexy, touching you in all the right places, spurning you when it gets contentious then delivers that balance to every character and leaves you spent wanting more. He takes you on an intense ride. Guaranteed!
Elizabeth's street smart or mountain-smarts and her determination to rival for Lothaire's love, bringing him back from his near insanity and showing him true happiness.
I have no particular because i was lost in the development of each plot.
There are several, but to mention 3: (1) I was moved when Elizabeth seemed doomed to die, (2) Lothaire's sensitivity to Elizabeth's virginity and a desire to take care of her and (3) Elizabeth being turned out of Nicks sanctuary to fend for herself when Lothaire seemed unconcerned for her well being because of unspoken shared feelings.
Robert Petkoff brought this book to life. It was like a movie without the picture and he totally rocked it. He is a GREAT NARRATOR. You get lost in his intensity and he delivered an orgasmic performance. He has become one of my favorite narrators.
I LOVED THIS BOOK BOTH WRITTEN AND AUDIO. I LOVED THE NARRATED MALE VOICES. THE ONLY THING I DIDN'T LIKE WAS THE FEMALE LEADS VOICE.
I LOVED THE MALE VOICES HE DID.
Right up there with "A Hunger Like No Other"....I loved every minute of this book. Perfect balance....Once again Robert Petkoff proves why he is my favorite narrator! I cannot wait for the more of the series to be available on Audible. I can only HOPE that they are as good as my two favorites
Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.
Loved this story. Have listebed to this story over and over. Cole is possible my favourite author.Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.
I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
"Kresley Cole's standard seduction for Vampires"
If you have read, listened to, Kresley Cole you will know that these books are enormous fun filled with her own lavishly dirty cliches.
In this book Lothaire is the protagonist, after glimpses of his 'Mad' behaviour in previous books it was exciting to delve more into his dark 'evil' world; but don't despair we then return to the usual antics, mis-communication and the sexual deviance's that will either make you laugh out loud or curl your toes.
Overall I really enjoyed listening to this audio book, the narrator is great and has stuck through out the series so he understands the different characters that pop in and out of the books (watch out for nix cameo - she's as crazy as usual) but this is not one of my favourites from the series.
