Tall, Dark & Heartless | [R. L. Mathewson]

Tall, Dark & Heartless

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.

Audible Editor Reviews

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!

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Nice Surprise"

    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.

    "Love the story, hate the audiobook."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.

    "Cant wait for more books in this series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tall, Dark & Heartless to be better than the print version?

    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


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series and cant wait for more books to come out! Hurry Please!

    "Tall, Dark and Boring"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "An OK story"
    What could R. L. Mathewson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Stella Bloom – was your favorite?

    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.
