Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love....
After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends - those poor romantic fools - plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these... feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning - for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?

It was delicious! It left me feeling great! The book was awesomely written. Thank you Ms. Sparks. The narration by Ms. Zackman was awesome too! Her use of her voice was well done.
Say something about yourself!
i just don't think romance was up to par and i wish there was more sexual intensity.
Hmm Grouchy Scottish vampire and a virgin sort-of fallen angel.. It sounds really really corny but it works. Some laugh-outloud moments as well as touching scenes, the kind Kerrelyn-sensei seems to be good at doing. I have read the series on and off and I seem to have missed reading several books The 2 books I've recently read were fun enough that I will go back and pick up those books.
I found this to be a decent paranormal romance novel. Just be forewarned its about 75% romance, 5% action, and 20% related to the paranormal setting and characters. There is room for sequels if the author decides to do so.
Books are my addiction when it comes to "ME" time, you can usually find me under a warm fuzzy blanket with my Audible App engaged!
What I loved about this book is the innocence's of the Angel and how she had to learn about being a human from those around her. It was funny to hear how everyone was trying to impress her and put their best foot forward, while the Angel didn't judge anyone and thought everyone was wonderful for who they are.
When Marielle got into the closet with Conner, and the conversation that took place there.
I think she did a good job at being the narrator for this book.
Yes, however real life takes away from audio book time :(
I love this series and how each book is about one of the main characters explaining more about them and their past.
Liked the story even though the reader was... Lest put it this was she made Kerrelyn Sparkes kind of bland.
No. Wrong narrator for this type of story.
I have heard her many times, but this was the totally wrong book for her.
The narration made it impossible for me to finish listening. I love this series, but skip this one!
Love dogs, reading and listening to audible books too
No but I would change the narrator
When the ladies explain to the 'angel the three steps rule, lol
The 3 steps rule
Love the whole series but I really dislike the fact that it change narrator on almost every book which give preview character different voice I hate it

I love Kerrelyn Sparks but Gabra Zackman..... never again.
In the ebook version I love Connor and Marielle.
Coleen Marlo or Donna Rawlins would work well or..... my favorite narrator is Robert Petkoff
At the end of the book I cried (both versions)
Gabra Zackman has a boring voice and it was hard to focus on the story when she spoke. I was disappointed with this narrator.
I really love the story line and how each of the characters continue to develop throughout the other stories. I listen in the car, on walks and even while cleaning. I can't wait to see who falls in love next. While I do wait, I am listening to them all over again...
The only draw back I have witnessed from the Audio books is the fact that the narrators change with every single book. The biggest frustrations come during the later books in the series pronounce the names differently than the earlier books and the accents are all off. A single narrator for the entire series would be preferred.
"Enid Blyton meets Twilight"
I am an adult and listen to and read adult literature. For me this lady is writing a twee fairy story. Sorry bored to tears and won't buy any more from Ms Sparks even though Audible seems to be glutted with them
"It's about time Connor got some!!!"
Connor has been around since the first book in this series - watching all of his friends and colleagues fall in love, so it was definitely his turn. This story was a step away from the usual vampire/human/shifter love story but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
"vampire mine review"
good story a little different from the others but enjoyable. What was not was the voice of Gabra Zackman if you can get past her dreadful monotonous voice its a good listen !
"Book review preson"
I love the books by kerrelyn sparks and the vampires are bring to life by her words in the books
"more teen than mean!"
Fine for the teenage vamp/shifter fans out there. Nice story but lacking that substance from other better known authors of the genre
