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.

    "Yay, a new series I can get into!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It had all the qualities I wanted: Paranormal world, love story, lovable H/h, fulfilling HEA, and humor to keep the seriousness of a dangerous story light enough to enjoy.


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

    She would do anything to give him back his soul.

    Story
    "Cheesy Romance Novel"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have just read the Nick Chronicles and really liked those stories, and thought that this was a continuation of that series. It is, but in a very different genre, it is suddenly an awkwardly done romance novel. A character making out right after meeting, with a high frequency of “bulge” conversation and very staged encounters. It isn't a believable romance, and really that isn't my cup of tea anyways, I guess the title should have clued me in, but coming off her other series I wasn't thinking along those lines. I only got through a first part, but I do think it is a shame; I liked this world she created in the other series.

    "Introduced by Fate"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. It was hard to get interested in the story or the characters.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon? Why or why not?

    Yes. Another series may be along the lines of my interest.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    /////it might have been beneficial to have two narrators for the main characters--one male, one female.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Different characters, different circumstances.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "No More, Please!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This was horrible. I could live with the silly plot if it wasn't for the horrible narration.


    What was most disappointing about Sherrilyn Kenyon’s story?

    It wasn't interesting. I have read other stories by her and I thought I would like this, but it seemed to be lacking any excitement.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carrington MacDuffie’s performances?

    I wouldn't mind listening to Carrington read a regular romance novel if it didn't involve creating accents. Her accents are absolutely horrible, unbelievable, and ridiculous! Almost every female has an exaggerated


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

    I like a good sex scene as much as the next romance reader, but it was the same one over and over. And it seemed as if was used as filler to make a short, uninteresting story drag out to fill a book.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I can listen to anymore Sherrilyn Kenyon books if they are this uninteresting and the narration is this horrible.

    "Enjoyed"

    I enjoyed the story, but could not stand narrator's voices for characters, especially female voices. The main female character sounds so whiny. it is the same in the sacond books. Eventhough narrator could immitage accents, I would rather if narator did not use any accents at all because, for some reason, it took away from the story.

    "Graphic romanticists"

    The basis of the story in interesting. I found it to be a titillating romance story wrapped in emotional pschology of relationships, wrapped in fantasy lore.. Not what I was looking for but I thought I would give it a try.

    "amazing of course!"

    I own the whole paper back series. I just had to have the audio series so I can listen to it while I am at work. It is worth the money! If you are a person who loves "vampires" and mystery...this is your type of series. Please note that there is some sexual content in these series. I personally wouldn't allow a young teen (12-15) to read this series because of the sexual content. We all know that kids will see/read it somewhere else though. My advice to the parents is check out the book first before letting a younger teen read it--just to make sure you approve of the material. I have gotten several of my co-workers addicted to the series! Don't have to read them in order, but it makes more sense if you do.

    "Good part of a great series"

    I have listened to or read most of this series, and resisted this book because of all the negative reviews. I started the series with book 4, Zarek???s story. I must say I don???t really understand all the negative reviews at all. If you are new to the series this is a good start, as it gives a good background on the Dark Hunters, Appolites, and Daimons. This is a fantasy romance and has some steamy love scenes, I wouldn???t call them soft-core porn as some other???s have suggested, but they are descriptive, so if you are not into that in your romance books, maybe this series is not for you. I totally got the instant connection between Kyrian and Amanda they are soul mate. I???ve read enough romance novels to know, when soul mates meet the connection is instant and unexplained, I don???t need some grand gesture to accept it. I liked the narrator, although my favorite narrators of the series are Fred Berman and Holter Graham, I didn???t mind this narrator at all. This is not my favorite of the series, but I did enjoy this offering and I wish I had not let negative reviews deter me for so long.

    "Complete rubbish."

    I am half-way through this book and I cannot BELIEVE how absurd it is, just sex no substance or storyline whatsoever. Why do some female writers believe all men are walking hard-ons?? Seriously, I read LOTS of fantasy and sci-fi, and this is just cheesy porn, AWFUL. "Made sweet love to her with his hand"?? REALLY!? Is this written for hormonal tweens? I have never rolled my eyes this much. And the narration...just awful. If your going to write porn at least get someone with a somewhat sexy voice! I'd rather listen to my mother read this to me. PASS
