Publisher's Summary

Five hundred years ago, Hayden fell into Caleb’s brutal hands, the ruthless vampire who first claimed his mortal life, then his mind. Tortured into absolute submission, Hayden spent centuries at the powerful lord’s right hand, a broken shell of the man he had once been. Until the night he was sent to kill her. Katherine, a young woman whose innocence and sweet nature woke a part of him Hayden had thought long dead.

After joining forces with the local vampire coven, Hayden turned on his master, betraying the man he had sworn to eternally obey. However, before the villain could be laid to permanent rest, Caleb vanished.

Katherine fell hard for Hayden’s protective nature, while his mysterious aura captivated her. Yet after only a single night in his arms, Hayden pushed her away, stating their love could never be. Confused by the rejection, Katherine struggled to move forward, left with no options but to deny her heart the battered soul it craved.

Now, Caleb has returned, set on delivering vengeance against both the man who betrayed him, and the catalyst for his defection. Katherine and Hayden must discover a way to avoid Caleb’s evil intent, while determining if there is any future for their love.

Forever Chosen is a novella featured in the Vampire Brides series. Books in the Vampire Brides series can be heard in any order. Don’t miss a single bride.

Great vampire love story

This book was just what I needed. I have been craving a good vampire love story and a book that didn't have a love triangle. I absolutely love epic fantasy novels but it's hard to find ones that have a good strong romance throughout the whole series. I love how she tells you the backstory and gets you sucked into their love for each other.

Fantastic Dramatization!!!

I love Iove love this dramatization of KL Bond's novel Forever Chosen. I enjoyed listening to her voice just as much as I loved reading the novel in the Midnight Coven series! This will not be my last audio book I will listen to from Kylie Stewart and KL.Bone! #NerdGirlOfficial

Way too much graphic torture

I had been looking forward to listening to this vampire romance novella, but I found the romantic relationship to be underdeveloped, and there was an objectionable amount of bloody torture. I think that this 3-hour novella has more scenes with skin flaying than most full length horror novels or violent thrillers! Yes, the blurb hinted that the vampire villain Caleb conducted torture, but the reality of the graphic nature of the perverted violence in this book is ten times worse than what was indicated in the blurb. In addition, FYI, there was also sexual assault, but the author thankfully held back enough details that I am not complaining about that. Overall, there was way too much emphasis on the villain’s awful activities and not enough romance. Previously, I have listened to and loved K.L. Bone's “Wicked Desires” and “Embracing the Dragon”, so the author’s choices for graphic torture in this novella were puzzling to me. Other aspects of the story were underwhelming, and the story did not hold my attention very well. The lead characters Hayden and Katherine were likable but a little boring. The plot was rather predictable and not original. In addition, I thought there was a little too much jumping back and forward in the timeline. The solo narrator, Kylie Stewart, gave a solid performance. She has lovely posh English accent and melodic voice. She is very good at male and female voices. Occasionally, I thought her pacing was a little too slow. I requested and received a free audiobook copy via #AudiobookObsession, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review. #AudiobookObsession Reviewer

Pushes Limits and Boundaries

Title: Forever Chosen Author: K.L. Bone Format: Audio Narrator: Kylie Stewart Genre: Paranormal Romance, Dark Standalone: Yes Part of a Series: Part of the Vampire Brides series POV: Multiple Steam Level: Dubious consent but not graphic 4/5 While mainly the love story between Hayden and Katherine, Forever Chosen has some dark themes. What would you do for love? What would you endure? What would you sacrifice? What's your breaking point? Forever Chosen lightly explores these questions while also maintaining the love between Hayden and Katherine, even though separate for the majority of the book. I would have loved an epilogue but overall a great book. I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Interesting Story

A Vampire love story, not my usual genre. But this novella had plenty of passion, action packed into it. I enjoyed listening to the narration by Kylie Stewart. She was amazing with all the different voices. 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧

Hot vampire romance

This book is part of the Midnight Coven Universe. It is a novella and can be read as a stand alone. I enjoyed this book. I will be honest and tell you that I have read only one other book in this universe. But you really don't have to read them all. I don't feel like I missed out on anything. This book is absolutely a stand alone. It took me a little bit to get into because the storyline skipped from present to 3-5 years ago and that was a little bit hard to follow until I got the hang of it. Hayden is a tortured knight who is ordered to kill Katherine.. only he can't kill her. Hayden fights to keep her safe and they grow close and fall in love. There is so much more to this story. I had a hard time with the timeline jumping around but it honestly gave us back story and made a short novella seem longer and filled with more story. If you love hot vampire romances, I highly recommend this book. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Another great novella

Capturing me from early on I had to listen to this in one sitting. As this is a novella I thought it wouldn’t give much information about Hayden’s turning but I was happily surprised that this was quite detailed. The narrator did a good job in differentiating each character so you knew it was a different person’s POV. One thing is for sure, K.L. Bone writes great paranormal romances. 🎧 AudiobookObessionReviewer

Enjoyable.

This book was enjoyable but I was a little confusing at times I think if it was a little longer the author would have had the time to explain things a little more and I would have liked it more. The Narrator did an amazing job. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Forever Chosen

Hayden has been stuck in Caleb's service for 500 years. Learning to endure and just going with what he wanted to save himself form more torture. That is until the night he was sent to kill her, and women were not normally on the list and Katherine was special. Instead Hayden chooses to betray Caleb with his rival coven. Warning: although the story is not overly descriptive you get the meaning of the torture Caleb goes to with all his victims. Kylie Stewart does a fantastic job with the narration. I totally look forward to more from this series. Thanks audiobook obsession for the recommendation.

Audiobook Obsession

The story wasn’t bad. It was ok. The narrator did a good job. But I was confused a little with all the jumping around with time. It was hard to stay focused and understand everything.

Paranormal Romance

Forever Chosen by K.L. Bone is a standalone novella featured in the Vampire Brides series that I listened to on audio narrated by Kylie Stewart. This is the third book of K.L. that I have read and it did not disappoint. I do have to say the book does jump around in time so listening on audio while working was a bit confusing and I had to rewind a few times. However, I really did enjoy the story. Kylie did an amazing job on the narration. I absolutely love her voice. She does a great job with different voices for each character so it makes it easy to follow along with the storyline. #AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Twisted Love & Hope for Freedom

Hayden was once a knight for an English king, but was tortured, enslaved, seduced, and turned by a sadistic and psychopathic French vampire, Caleb. He’s done centuries worth of horrible things to serve Caleb blindly until he’s ordered to kill Katherine, a sweet and innocent woman who has brought light and love back into his life after so much darkness. Hayden tries to stay noble and protect her by keeping his distance, but passion wins and the past can’t easily be left behind. KL created an amazing backstory for Hayden and that was very detailed and heartbreaking. Caleb was an easy villain to hate and you couldn’t help but root for Hayden to officially break the sire bond and have his HEA with Katherine. This book was filled with torture, romance, death, sacrifice, betrayal, and some darker themes. I’m looking forward to reading the other stand-alone books in the Vampire Brides series to learn more about this world. Kylie did an amazing job with this narration! Her voice is easy to listen to and captivates you from the start. I love the different voices that she used for each character and how well she portrayed Hayden’s pain in her performance. @AudiobookObsession *I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Unique but a bit convoluted

This was an interesting storyline but the way it jumps around its timeline is a bit confusing at times. I did eventually get into it. Being such a short book it was almost over by the time I did though. I do think it has potential as a series if the books were a bit longer giving the storyline and characters a bit more time to develop. Kylie did a fantastic job narrating this book! All the different accents she used were brilliant. It helped give each character their own unique personality and she did it so well and so seamlessly. I'd love to hear more of her work. #audiobookobsessionreviewer
