Imagine being captured and imprisoned by the one man who ever broke your heart! That's what happens in Tall, Dark, & Heartless, an innovative novel that blends fantasy and romance. Stella Bloom performs the novel with her characteristically sexy flourish. Bloom is particularly well suited to portraying the psyche of the heroine, Danni, who must now face down the Pyte who brought her into the world of Sentinels. Steamy and suspenseful, Tall, Dark, & Heartless is a must for anyone looking for a great pause-resisting listen!
He should have left her and never looked back… That's not how things played out for Caine, a nearly one thousand year old Pyte, who should have known better. Instead of walking away years ago, he has been watching over the only human who has touched his heart. He stays to protect her, at least that is what he tells himself. When trouble finds her, he knows that he should just cut his losses and walk away, but there is no fighting the hold the child, who has become a woman, has on him. Now they are both paying the price.
Danni knows that she isn’t technically a Sentinel and is putting her life in danger every time she goes out on patrol. She isn't worried, she has a job to do. It is the only thing that matters to her anymore and she isn’t going to let it go without a fight. Unfortunately for her, she didn’t foresee her ex-boyfriend selling her out to a Master, being captured, getting locked up and stuck in a room with the cranky Pyte. The same Pyte that broke her heart years ago and won't stop glaring at her - as if their little predicament is all her fault.

O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
This was a really nice Surprise. This book had great sex, angst, action and a provided a chance to revisit with characters from previous novels.
I love the Pyte/Sentinel series and every other series that this author has, so I would definitely recommend the ebook but not this audbibook. The edit is very poor, there is a lot of skipping and repeating that is very distracting.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I tried three times to get into this story with-out success. I found the story boring and i just couldn't stay connected to it. Perhaps with a better narrator it might of helped but with all the repetitive stuff i doubt it. Sadly a big No from me.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
Wow! I'm really taken aback by this series...I'm loving it, and at the same time on pins and needles due to the dangers. In this series, you get the continuation of previous characters that are further built up (Ephraim & Madison's family, etc.), with the dimension of the addition of new characters, including our hero, Caine and beautiful heroine, Danni.
Caine and Danni's romance is a deep and powerful one. Caine is a 900 year old Pyte who was endeared to a bossy little girl, where they lived in the Sentinel compound. After noticing that the girl was rather neglected by her Sentinel parents, Caine became her protector and friend until the day he abandoned her when she was about 17 years old. However, quite a few years later, Caine and Danni get saddled together through the ploy of despicable villains. Caine's love for Danni is his weakness and the enemy knows it....even before Danni does.
In "Tall, Dark, and Heartless" you get a love between Caine and Danni that is filled with hilarious moments, hot-insatiable sexual need for one another, and so much danger and challenges that you feel the weight of it. Yet all this couple really wants, is to be together. No worries though, they do get an HEA, but you just know that their story will continue to be told in the next books in this series...So, definitely more to come for Caine and Danni!
Well, after my rant about the male lead in the book that preceded this one, I was so happy that Mathewson redeemed Chris Williams and his relationship with his mate, Isabella in this book. Chris made a permanent change in his outlook and we got to witness the sweet, devoted husband and father in him come to life. The lives of other characters, including a risky budding romance, between Jill and Logan, were explored in between the scenes with the leads, almost as commercials.
Overall, I love how Matthewson creates these hilarious characters and their love relationships that allow a lightness in this dark and dangerous world where despite the supernatural qualities of the characters, danger always seems to follow & with a vengeance.
Can't wait to read/listen to the next book (hoping it will be released soon)!!
Narrator: Stella Bloom has really come into her own with this series. She's doing a fabulous job in her narration.
The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Stella Bloom makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill a book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job
I love this series and cant wait for more books to come out! Hurry Please!
Another great story in this series. Funny and action packed you get introduced to new characters and old. Sets it up for the next book.
Maybe it's just a writing style, but she's very repetitive and it becomes somewhat irritating when listening to the book. I notice the same issue with another of her books, Checkmate ("...a cup of delicious hot chocolate"...sigh). Also, she has this way of having characters engage into little bickering fights that end up being an annoyance more than anything else, like listening to your kids squabble with each other.
Cain was my favorite.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This is my first listen from this author and I'll be sure to get more. I enjoyed the flavor. Yum Yum.
