Jamys Durand has survived being made an immortal Darkyn, horrific torture, and years of grueling warrior training. But he has no future to offer Chris, the mortal woman he loves, without his own territory. When he learns of a lost Templar treasure, Jamys vows to possess it and win his lady's heart.
No one knows Chris Lang wants to be a tresora so she can live with Jamys, her secret love. Her superiors offer to make her dream come true, but only if she finds the lost treasure before Jamys can. Working together, Chris and Jamys track the jewels through a shadowy maze of priceless artifacts, decadent secrets, and one ruthless opponent who can possess an immortal's mind...and will stop at nothing to have Chris.

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
This new series is getting better, I have not read or listened to any of her previous series of books giving the backgrounds and histories of The Darkyn or The Kyndred which is VERY frustrating because you don't know the who, what's and whys.
This was a sweet romance but it was one of those frustrating listens that has you shouting "just hurry up and tell him/her that you love them). Plenty of supernatural characters from the previous book get involved in a parallel plot which was very exciting and thrilling. Overall it was a very enjoyable paranormal listen that is action packed and romantic that has a couple of sexy hot bits but I may be losing the battle to keep up with all the 'entities' mentioned and what they have already done, can, are or are planning to do. I feel like I've walked into a really good film but it's already over halfway through and I'm lost.
Worth a credit? It was well written, emotional, action packed along with a nail-bitting doomed romance - so I guess it was but I just wished I could have listened to the whole series. I will however, persevere in the hope that book 3 will shed more light on the series.
Lynn has create a set of characters that are interesting and meld together. Her situations have a twist and you are never sure where she is going with the story. Her prose rivals Kenyon's and her characters are interesting and stimulating. I have read her first set of books in this group and this continuation builds on them.
She does a good job with these characters as usual and a good plot to go with it. I've read all the darykin and kyndred books and these last two are some of the best. Familiar characters done well.
Not to mention that Johanna Parker does a very good job narrating the book.
