Publisher's Summary

Ian Buchanan has always felt the unknown--the deep, impenetrable darkness that lives within him. Yet he is determined to lead a "normal" life, ignoring the unsettling dreams in which he succumbs to his wildest desires.... Until psychic Molly Stratton tracks him down, claiming to share his sensual nightmares.

The petite Molly even has the bite marks to prove it. And she's also received a message from Ian's deceased mother: an enemy is near. And it's time for the creature inside Ian to finally awaken. A creature with an insatiable hunger that must be controlled before it overtakes them both.

Hot Paranormal/Erotic Romance

A good start to a new series. Molly was a likeable heroine, sweet yet strong when she needed to be. Ian's struggle with his destiny went on just a bit too long for my taste. But all in all a good story. The world Ms. Byrd created was interesting and I'll read more in this series. If you like your romance filled with emotion and intense passion, you should enjoy this book.

Great story!

I really liked the author's style. I look forward to the next book. However the narrator was not good! If not for the poor narration, I would have given this book 5 stars.

Good Writing - Bad Narration

This is an interesting book with great sexual interactions, an elusive bad guy and a tasty end. Unfortunately the narrator ruins this book. While I am sure she would be great for reading children's novels, her intonations and voices are way off and sometimes just creepy for a sexy paranormal romance. I will read the rest of this series in paperback...

Eh...

This books story in general holds a lot to be desired. I forced myself to listen to most of it , but had to stop halfway through. I lost interest , the book was extremely repetitive. Lots of pointless descriptions and dragging on....Don’t normally write reviews but this was the first book I’ve listened to that I didn’t like...

Very Disappointed

The protagonist annoyed me. He seemed like a brooding, petulant child. The voice used to denote Scott sounds like Julie Andrews. Molly has some serious self esteem issues and is just a gluten for punishment. He speaks to her like shit. She’s like a puppy that gets kicked and keeps coming back showing affection. I kept listening hoping that I’ll be rewarded for my efforts but to no avail.

Bad Narration

The narration was bad, but I found the lead male character unbearable and just couldn't make myself listen past character 7.

Over all storyline was good and managed to get

Got through series but only to hear ending, all male 'heroes' did little more than complain and whine until the self pity got beaten out of them. Overall story good, about the best I can say that is positive.

Promising But...

This book started off really well and drew me in but as it progressed I grew more and more disenchanted with Ian. His stubborn unwillingness to listen to anybody else and his instance upon treating Molly like she couldn't make up her own mind what she wanted just grated on my nerves. He spent a good chunk of the book being a petulant, angry, whiny man-baby with a Texas sized martyr complex.

I rather enjoyed this book

Based on the reviews I read, I really thought I wouldn’t be able to finish this book. Yes, I do agree that the narration, especially her attempt at male voices, was pretty awful. I have heard worse. There have been a few books that I had to immediately return due to the unbearable narration; this book wasn’t that bad. I kinda enjoyed this unique spin on the paranormal world. You know, I think that is what I liked best. This plot was unique and I plan to listen to more of the series.
