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...

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.

A twist on the typical paranormal book

There characters were solid but it took a while for the story to build enough to understand where it was going. It also didn't follow the usual paranormal format and changes the rules of the game, so you need to pay attention so that you understand how this world works. Overall I liked the characters. However, I didn't like the performance at all. She didn't differentiate between characters very well and her accents were horrible. Was it bad enough to stop listening - nope. I jumped straight into the 2nd book!

Disappointed

I like paranormal romance (JR Ward, Lora Leigh, Richelle Mead, etc.), but this didn't have enough storyline and I never fully believed the chemistry between the two main characters. Perhaps that is partly because the "instant chemistry" is there in the first 3 minutes of the story, before we even know the characters and care about them, and also because he is being so mean to her. I like a rough male character, but he came off as too much of a jerk to me throughout the entire story so that I felt bad for her continuing to hang around him yearning for his affection/touch. Also, please, please use another word than rasped when male characters speak! There was so many "he rasped" in the dialogue that I started rolling my eyes, wishing for the author to use a thesaurus and pick some other verbs.

Good Intro

Good introduction to the series. I have to say Ian has a sylor's mouth. So if you are sensative to language be prepared.
