Her blood is unlike any other.

When he sees Riley for the first time, he must taste her. Her blood is intoxicating, but it is her ability to resist his glamour that makes her truly beguiling.
 

Declan isn't the only vampire hunting her, and when Riley's taken, he will do anything to find her - and save her. Battling Hunters and enemy vampires is nothing new for Declan, but this time, he cannot fail. If he loses Riley, his very existence is over.

Falling in love with a vampire!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Novellas usually have me wanting more and this story left me wanting more of this wonderful story and fantastic narration. Don't get me wrong. This story is complete and filled with adventure, suspense, a sexy vampire, a strong female, sensual love scenes, and battle scenes. Declan and Riley find a love with each other that neither expected to find. The narrators were perfect for this story. They portrayed the emotions and personalities of these characters. Lucy gave Riley a strong but very feminine voice. Jason gave Declan a deep mesmerizing sexy voice. Be still my heart. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Stand alone novella

So, I've never been interested in vampire stories and rarely read novellas, but I decided to give this one a chance because it has a) a female scientist protagonist, b) Jason Clarke, and c) romantic suspense. I haven't read anything else in the Vampire Brides series, but it wasn't necessary to read any others to enjoy this one.

I'm glad that I listened to Forever Kept as I liked both the performance and the story line. There was enough to the story to make it seem complete despite the novella length. I'm still not a big fan of the whole "blood is delicious" scenes, but I did add some other non-vampire Patricia D. Eddy books to my wishlist.

Brilliant storyline

This book has a brilliant storyline. I really enjoyed the chemistry between the characters. It has a lot going on so it keeps you hooked. Great job from both Lucy and Jason. I could listen to Jason all day and all night, his voice is mesmerising.

Cute and short vampire story

Cute, short vampire and human story. We have a good vampire who hates killing and a dying human woman. She has magical blood and knows nothing of her past. There isn’t anything mind blowing about this book but it was entertaining!

Narration was great! I liked the males voice better than the females, but both the accents were pretty good!

Short but so full

If that makes sense to you;) This was a short story but so packed full of action, drama, suspense and romance. I’ve really enjoyed theses stories from the Vampire Brides series. This was definitely worth it and a great audio performance to go with a story that had me engrossed.

Short but fun vampire story

Riley is dying and she goes to Ireland for a last hurrah. She joins a tour group and meets Declan (unknowingly at first). Declan drinks from her and he finds himself caring about her beyond anyone else. She gets captured by other vampires. Will he find her before it’s too late? This was a fun, exciting and romantic story, brought to life especially with the excellent narration in the audiobook. Both Lucy Rivers and Jason Clarke were great. They both used awesome accents and and had perfect voices for the characters.

This is one of a series (different authors) so can be read as a standalone.

Sad that it finished

This is a novella and quite short but packed full. I really enjoyed listening to this mainly because Declan was not like other vampires, he believed that no human should die from vampire feeding on them. Good morals but what happens when the urge to drink consumes him? Riley, a haematologist has something wrong with her blog and goes one one last trip to visit Ireland and it isn’t long before her and Declan become acquainted. Is it a disaster waiting to happen? Well I am not going to tell you what happened because you really need to listen to it yourself, but I really liked it and will definitely be looking for more audiobooks and books by Patricia D Eddy.
The narration was perfect, both Jason and Lucy made the characters come to life.

Reclusive Vampire & The Dying Human

Declan is a vampire that hates to kill, but he still needs blood to survive. His solution to his problem is his castle in Ireland- he has tourists visit and each time, he lures one into a dark corner, gets his fix, wipes their memory, and sends them on their way. Riley is a scientist whose life is running low since she isn’t able to find a cure, but decides to take one last trip to Ireland. Declan is easily lured to her and both of their worlds turn upside down. He can’t stop thinking about her and she’s being chased by hunters, turned into a blood slave, and ultimately has to decide if immorality is the right choice for her if it’s offered. I really fell in love with Riley’s scientific and morally right personality, but found that she was stubborn at times and didn’t always think things through. Declan had a protective and more human personality than most vampires, but was still seductive and enticing. I wish there would have been more scenery or descriptions of Ireland itself, but overall I really enjoyed this vampire suspense romance.
Jason and Lucy did an amazing job with their narration duet! Their voices flowed nicely with one another and it was always easy to tell who was speaking. I loved the Irish accent that Jason uses for Declan and together they both kept me hooked until the very end!

really interesting story

I enjoyed this book, it started with a human sad element, an illness that could not be reversed fate brought her and her cure together. it wasn't cheesy or predictable and the history of the illness was brought forward from her ancestry
I love a good Vampire and witch story and this didn't disappoint. it had all the elements!
well written and narrated. really enjoyed all of it.

I will look forward to further stories written by Patricia D Eddy
Jason Clarke ... My what a wonderful male voice I could listen to it all day

Great Vampire listen!

Short, entertaining listen. Wish I understood more about her heavy metal poisoning. But the rest was well developed. Male narrator was amazing. Female narrator took more getting used to. Definitely will continue listen to this author! 🎧 AudiobookObsession

Audiobook Obsession

Delcan was a man of peace, until he found Riley. It was nice to see he couldn’t stay away from her. Hunters were hunting his race, and now her. This was a nice different read. Vampires, hunters and witches. I like it!

Vampire Brides Rock!

I love the style of Patricia D Eddy's writing, which is why I took the chance to listen to this! I am not a paranormal listener, but this book caught my ear and I couldn't stop listening. The intriguing story of Declan and Riley had me from the start. With a chance meeting, feelings that cannot be denied and danger lurking, this couple has it all. It's suspenseful, passionate, steamy and I could not get enough. Riley is strong, smart and I love her courage. Declan is the ultimate vampire, the one I think of when I think of creatures of the night. It's a quick, listen that had me entertained from the first chapter. Narration by Lucy Rivers and Jason Clarke only enhanced this story. They are so good, fall into character perfectly and made me right there with them as they found their forever kept.
