Publisher's Summary

In Night Pleasures, Kyrian of Thrace - an immortal who protects humans from vampires - wakes up one morning handcuffed to the one thing that can scare him: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. But Amanda Devereaux turns out to be his perfect partner for hunting down a deadly foe, and for helping him to regain his soul - and learn that love doesn't have to bite.

Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

    "For Warned is For Armed! Not as bad Others Say."
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Carrington MacDuffie?

    Yes/ and only because I don't have a choice in Narrators for audio books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carrington MacDuffie?

    Holter Garham


    Any additional comments?

    I fell in love Ms. Kenyon's work with the Chronicles of Nick series so came here looking for more info about the characters, in particular Kyrain and Acheron. I did not have high expectations for this book after reading the other reviews. Because of this I was pleasantly surprised. The narration is almost as bad as people described however better then I expected. I listen to all books a 1.5 or 2x speed and I think the way the women drolled on at speed 1 would have probably driven me crazy. The other thing that helped was listening to Acheron first.It was really nice learning about so many things that are hinted at in the Chronicles of Nick like the truth about Kyrain's wife and such.
    The best thing about the book is the characterization. The characters are witty and compelling
    The worst thing for me about the book was all the sex. My wife would never believed I listened to such a "smutt book." I love Urban Fantasy (Jim Butcher is my favorite author of all time) However it sucks to be a man who likes Urban fantasy because 90% of it is Urban Romantic Fantasy and 40% minum of those books seem like nothing more than sex and emotional foreplay.
    Next book I intend to listen to is Seize the Night so I can found out the story behind how things went so bad between Acheron and Nick.

    "this series is like crack"

    i started with the teen version of these books and ran out of them so i was looking to see what else Sherrilyn had written. found these and just could not stop getting them. i love the main charators and the side ones are great also. it's one of those worlds i would just like to be in. some of the books in the series don't really apply but they are all good reads. love the narration.

    "Great"
    What did you love best about Night Pleasures?

    I loved the follow up from Fantasy Lover. The way all of the characters interacted from the previous book made it a wonderful listen. I was constantly saying to myself "Yeah, I remember this or that about that person from before.


    What does Carrington MacDuffie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I just love the way she does all the different accents.

    Story
    "Couldn't finish it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Night Pleasures to be better than the print version?

    Not even a little. Night Pleasures is one of my favorites in the DH series...and I couldn't finish the audio version of it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hmm. In this one Kyrian is my favorite, but only because Nick isn't in it as much as I'd like.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carrington MacDuffie?

    Unfortunately, just about anyone else. The accents were too jarring (too sacharine southern for Amanda and Tabitha, I couldn't figure out Kyrian's, and Talon's was just...no.) If I had my greatest wish fulfilled? It would be this one, and Night Embrace to be re-recorded by Holter Graham.


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

    Nope. I couldn't even finish it in several sittings.

    "Night torture"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book has been disappointing.I can't think of anyone who would enjoy it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sherrilyn Kenyon again?

    NO!! What a waste of my book credit!


    What didn’t you like about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?

    She sounded like she had something in her mouth, like a piercing. I think she also made it sound as if she despised the main female character as much as I have.


    What character would you cut from Night Pleasures?

    All.

    Story
    "Very sexy, but not that interesting"

    I purchased 3 of the Dark-Hunter series when there was a special and this was the 3rd one for me. I have to say that I found the frequent, graphic sex scenes to be distracting and the plot line to be thin. There are so many in this series that I thought that maybe I would get into the stories eventually, but I never really did. Sorry, but I rate this as just "Ok."

    Story
    "Not my kind of book..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I thought the sex was overdone. It was not germaine to the story in my opinion. I love a book when the characters are well-developed and the sexual scenes leave you to your imagination. I am not interested in continuing on with the series. I'm not sorry I tried the book on the 3 for 2 credits.I do recommend you either use headphones or if listening in your car... make sure your windows are rolled up. Nothing worse than sitting at a red light when the story goes into great detail on a sex scene and your windows are down. Might have made someone's day though!

    "I don't care what others think."
    Would you listen to Night Pleasures again? Why?

    Yap, loved the story. But I did start with the Chronicles of Nick.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't care what anyone else think's, although I'm probably different in that I read the "Chronicles of Nick." first before starting the DH book's. But i truly did like ever thing!

    "Enough to keep me interested"

    While this is not one of what I would consider my top series, it did keep my interest and I will give the next one in the series a chance. Right now, I would consider this series a good fill in until the next books in my top series come out.

    What did you love best about Night Pleasures?

    The story is amazing and kept my interest the entire way...

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

    The entire book moved me...always love the endings...
