Publisher's Summary

He is Layel, king of the vampires, a master seducer no woman can deny. But since a rogue horde of dragons killed his beloved over two centuries ago, Layel has existed only for vengeance...until he meets Delilah.

Wary of love, the beautiful Amazon wants nothing to do with the tormented vampire. Yet there's no denying their consuming desire every time he nears her.

Neither trusts the other - nor can they survive alone. For in an impossible game of the gods' devising, they've been trapped on an island, about to face the ultimate challenge: surrender to the passion that will bind them forever...or be doomed to an eternity apart.

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Gena Showalter's books have been featured in Cosmopolitan and Seventeen magazines and on MTV.

    "Not a very good book"

    way too sappy. the book is like a reality tv show. and to make it worse, she constantly says the same things over and over. i couldnt even get through the first 6 chapters before i had to quit listening.

    Story
    "Get on with it already."
    Where does The Vampire's Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably near the middle which doesn't mean much cause I don't read many books I don't like.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gena Showalter? Why or why not?

    Yes. I don't hate her books, but I am not to where I just couldn't live without her either.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene where she is not discussing how inadvertently smitten the two are without wanting to admit it.


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

    Not really. This book is more of a guilty pleasure. There is nothing particularly inspirational about it.


    Any additional comments?

    The story line is not a bad one. The only reason that this book doesn't get better reviews is because the author felt the need to drone incessantly about the attraction between the two and how neither, especially the vampire, are willing to admit it. If is hand't been for that then the story line would have been a good one. I just feel that there is so much more that Showalter could have done with the story, given that she didn't dwell on the two longing for each other and denying one another.

    Travel is essential, snowboarding a need. I love speed: cars, motorcycles, boards. Food is more than a requirement; on the best days it's a supreme indulgence.

    "Yummy!"

    I think these books gain something when someone reads them to me. Definitely not literature, but who doesn't need some fun ;)

    "CRAP"

    Awful, had too many sub-stories which took away from the two main characters. Most of the book was the heroin trying to force herself on the hero and the hero saying he did not want her, although he did. Image most of the book " I know he wants me I can see it in his eyes". " I don't want you, what is it about her that I want her but I am not going to take her, she has cast a spell on me". Chapter after chapter of repeating those words in different ways

    "Well done!"

    Intresting and intriguing, this book kept me listening even when I didn't need too. The narration is quite amazing, the reader really seemed to get the picture the author was trying to convey. The story line was good the only comment I would have to stay is that I got more attached to the side stories at times then the main plotline. In all it was defiantly a good purchase.

    Story
    "Droning on and on..."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It does have steamy sex scenes.


    What was most disappointing about Gena Showalter’s story?

    Droning on and on.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I like this narrator. But this was a strange story


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I couldn't even finish it. so I'm not going to try to figure out something good to say about it.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read (really read not listened) to another of GS books. I found it similar to this...and remembered why I decided to not read any more of hers.

    "Sex in an audible book"
    If you could sum up The Vampire's Bride in three words, what would they be?

    The story was good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Vampire's Bride?

    The suspence


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    not very good. Good voice, but no pause when going to one story line to the next.


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

    no break up, inless you are bored.


    Any additional comments?

    I read a lot. But I listen to books I either would never normally buy or would have a hard time getting through.

    "Interesting Book"

    The main characters in this book all have depth and the story was interesting. The story line reminded me of the TV show "Survivor" in some respects. Layel is a hot, haunted character that truely loved his fomer wife and struggles with his feelings for Delilah. I really enjoyed their story. There are also some side romances that were interesting. I thought the book had a lot of good plots and sub-plots. The narrator - Sanannah Richards - is very good.
