HE WAS SEX ON LEGS & SHE WAS CHAINED TO HIM - Mmmm
Good start to a new paranormal series filled with all sorts of supernatural creatures - vampires, zombies, wizards, witches, demons and magic.
..Show More »/>What a yummy vampire he is and to quote Abby - handsome with black biker boots, black jeans, black silk shirt, big muscles bad boy Dante was quite simply sex on legs (and I agree) along with tender, thoughtful, kind and besotted with Abby. The h/h were supernaturally hooked up nearly from the start and they finally went from being pursued to being the persuers when they decided to take their fate in their own hands. Along the way the pair meet different entities, had a few near misses, became closer and then, early in the book, they became lovers.
It was a slight 'Mills & Boon' type listen - nothing was ever too dark, too violent, too evil, too exciting, too sexy (well you get the picture) so if you like your vamp stories on the dark side this may disappoint you. But don't get me wrong, it was still a very enjoyable listen.
Worth a credit? Yes and I'm looking forward to the next instalment as this book was written in 2007 and the series is up to book 13 now so I hope Audible will continue to add this series to it's impressive library.
Viper - the charismatic, gorgeous, sexy Leader of the Vampires is obsessed with Shay - a half Shalott Demon who's been enslaved most of her life and, ..Show More »when she comes up for auction. Viper thinks he has a good plan. The simple plan is to sleep with her and then ta-dah he'll finally get her out of his system (yea right, we all know that's not going to happen).
This was an action-packed, funny, sexy romance and their adventure includes Hellhounds, Demons, an evil Villain, a curse, trolls and a Gargoyle who stole the show. As they battle to save Shay she finally begins to trust Viper as she realises he is fighting for and with her and he is willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. There's great chemistry and verbal interaction between the two which results in trust, passion, sex and love. During their riveting journey they encounter some interesting secondary characters (some from the previous book). However, this could be a stand-alone listen.
Worth a credit? For a Paranormal Romance lover this has everything and AIexandra Ivy's world-building skills just keeps adding layers, creatures and characters to this exciting series - so, naturally, I'm going to say YES and bring on book 3.
It just took 1 bite... for me too and I was hooked
This is the best one yet and if you're a paranormal romance lover then this is a great series to get into. It has Vampires, Gods, Goddesses, Werewolv..Show More »es, magic and a Gargoyle who stole the show.
Styx, (the King of the Vampires) is drool-worthy, sexy, and very very handsome (a good start) but he's fed up with all the Werewolves on his turf and they're headed by Salvatore (the King of the Werewolves), he's not quite as drool-worthy but still sexy and handsome too (added bonus). Styx is heartless and he has a plan to kidnap Darcy who's a compassionate, beautiful but feisty bartender as he's found out Salvatore wants her desperately. But his plan backfires when his kidnapping of her starts off a chain of events that'll change lives.
This very well-written, exciting and enjoyable story has mystery, passion, humor, surprises, funny banter, an unpleasant family reunion, treachery, action, sex and, of course, a lovely romance. Ms.Ivy has the ability to draw the listener into the richly described plot, then entertains us as she skilfully juggles her characters about, makes their personalities develop and grow into either very likeable/loveable characters or wicked villains and, in the end, we've been thoroughly entertained. My only peeve was the constant repetition by Darcy of the word "cripes" but I guess in her situation I'd be saying a lot worse.
Worth a credit? Oh boy is it ever a YES and, IMHO, if you too are into sexy vampires and paranormal romances then press 'Add To Cart" now you won't be disappointed but, if you can, start at book 1.
Anna is drawn to tall, dark, sexy and handsome Spanish Cezar and they have a night of passion where she loses her virginity and a few pints of blood (..Show More »unfortunately not shared with the listener). When she wakes up he's gone and she's changed discovering she's immortal so blames him for turning her realising too late that he's not only tall, dark, sexy and handsome but he's also very dead and a vampire too.
Two centuries later she's seeking revenge (unknowing that the Oracles have punished him already by making him impotent and in service to them all that time) as she is actually 'Special' not a Vampire. However, when Anna sees him once again she forgets revenge as the sparks fly, along with a lot of sexual tension, Cezar is instantly aroused by her (yippee) and he tries to explain she's not a Vampire but can do magic. Alas, the Oracles have given him the job of keeping his hands off her and keeping her safe as her life is being threatened by a wicked Queen whose also her Aunt and Anna has an important Prophecy to fulfil.
Cezar has a battle on his hands, he lusts after her and she just can't say no (well who could) but along with their passionate, tender but doomed romance there's action, humor, magic, great dialogue, sex, mystery and suspense along with supernaturals from previous books including a funny French Gargoyle, Fae, a Goddess, a Werewolf and some sexy Vampires which sweeten this enjoyable listen and they all try to defeat the Queen.
Worth a credit? Another enjoyable entertaining paranormal romance gratefully added to my library, along with the rest in this awesome fantasy world, so YES a creditworthy listen. If you're not following this series already I humbly suggest you start at book 1 because of the histories relating to all the other characters involved.
Poor sexy gorgeous Jagr the moody, unsociable, reclusive vampire that prefers his books to people is unwillingly sent on a mission by Styx (his King) ..Show More »to bring back Regan a stubborn, genetically altered Werewolf and one of Darcy's missing sisters but she's just escaped 30 years in captivity being tortured so the only thing she's looking for is revenge.
They have great chemistry and the romance isn't rushed as they understand each other as they've both been imprisoned and tortured and Jagr sympathises with Regan as to why she want and must get vengeance. He agrees to help her before he brings her to Styx and Darcy but even the thought of home and family makes her feel trapped and unhappy. There's plenty of action, likeable characters, humor, various villains, an assortment of supernaturals, a funny French Gargoyle, magic, twists, torture, passion and Regan's character grew and developed thanks to the caring, touching support of Jagr who makes the painful sacrifice of walking away from his soul-mate.
No disrespect to the guy on the cover but Jagr is a very handsome, long haired, sexy, drool-worthy vampire - so what happened with the cover picture?
Worth a credit? This is another enjoyable addition to the series but, IMHO, not the best - but definitely creditworthy and I'm sooo looking forward to book 6 Beyond The Darkness which is about the Were King Salvatore.
