Publisher's Summary

Being human while living with a pack of wolves wasn’t ideal. Ladon wanted the connection the mated pairs had, but it was always out of his reach. One more leap into a relationship could destroy him...Or it could save him.

Belonging to the Verascue family had its benefits. As the most powerful vampires in existence, they were equally feared and admired. They were also the only family Genevieve had left.

Ladon and Gen’s friendship was comfortable and secure. Words of love weren’t voiced, even if they were felt. Until everything changed.

When death breathed down Ladon’s neck, Gen couldn’t let him go. One bite and their bond became crystal clear. She would keep him by her side no matter the cost.

The pack was under attack. Lives were on the line. And it was up to Ladon and Gen to save them all. Together.

love it

Ladon the only human in the pack of wolves. They are all one big family that look out for each other. Ladon feels insecure, weak among the others since he doesn't have any special powers. He loves his extraordinary family, but he is lonely without a mate until he meets Genevieve. Their attraction is strong. She a vampire, he is a human . She doesnt want to make the final connection, but something drastic happens to Ladon, she didnt have time to make a choice between life and death. The mystery, suspense surrounding the pack, shows how loyal they are to each other. , Who is behind it all the terror?
Troy Duran and Sarah L Colton are perfection ! They bring this story to life!

Paranormals of Avynwood

Ladon's Desire (Paranormals of Avynwood, Book 8) is the newest edition of this paranormal world with interconnected characters, a standalone romance. I love returning to this amazing world. Each story is different but gives you the same feels.and draws you into their world. Genevieve's and Ladon's romance begins with friendship and explores into something more. An addictive storyline with unexpected plot twists, reams of adventure, dangerous moments, suspense and humor sprinkled through the pages. Heartbreaking moments that will have you reaching for a tissue box. I loved the ending and look forward to listening to the next audio in the series when available.

Sarah L. Colton, Troy Duran continue to amaze me with their flawless dual performance. I absolutely love Troy Durans deep baritone voice and Sarah's sweet and soothing tone. Excellent performance.

Looking forward to listening to these two narrate more audio's in this series.

Paranormal Romance

Ladon's Desire by Michelle Dare is a paranormal romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sarah L. Colton and Troy Duran.

This is the eighth book in the Paranormals of Avynwood Series. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone. However, they do reference characters from other books so I would recommend reading in order.

I absolutely love Michelle’s books! They always leave me with a smile. I really enjoyed Genevieve and Ladon's story. I liked that they had the insta-connection but slowly built on their relationship before letting the mating bond take effect. I can’t wait for the next book in the series Craving Camden to be released on audio so I can get Camden and Whitlock story.

Sarah and Troy did an amazing job on the narration. They really know how to bring a story to life.

I would highly recommend this series if you love Paranormal Romances.

I have loved every single one of this series!!!

Michelle Dare has created a paranormal world that I love being a part of! Every new book is a new time to fall in love with these characters all over again!

Laden and Genevieve meet when she visits the Quivicon pack house with her cousin. He’s attracted... as is she but she keeps avoiding it because she has been on her own for a long time! He’s human and she’s a Vampire. Until something happens that makes her choose.... and then many things happen to the pack that are the result of some twisted plot that I am not sharing any more about because I won’t spoil it!

Troy Duran and Sarah L Colton ARE these characters for me! Their voices are perfect for these paranormals!! I love both of these narrators!

Ladon’s Desire

This book is heartbreaking! I love this series and love this book just as much but so much happens that I’m not sure how to cope yet. I’m sure by the time the next one comes out I will have recovered and will be ready to dive in. This couple is a little more different with one of the mates being human but that does not stop them from finding their happy ending no matter what is thrown their way.

Great series!

Thoughts on the Plot: I absolutely loved this book! I am not too surprised if I am being honest. I have been in love with this entire series since the very first book. Every book is wholesome and funny. Normally books like this are full of cringe and angst. This series isn't like that. Not even a little bit.

Thoughts on the Characters: Laden has had his challenges. To start with, he's a human in the midst of a wolf pack. He hopes that he will be the mate to a shifter. The mate that he winds up with a vampire for his mate. She's a real gem. I adore her! I want more of her!

Notable Points: This is book eight in the Paranormals of Avynwood series. They can be read as stand alones, but I would fully recommend reading them in order. I am looking forward to reading them again.

Rating on Narrator: This book has been narrated by both Sarah L. Colton and Troy Duran. They narrated the rest of the series as well. 5-Star for both of them.

Thoughts on Audiobook: The two narrators have done such a fantastic job with this entire series. They have such amazing voices. They are easily two of my favorite narrators! They are easily on my auto-buy level in all honesty!

Suggestions for Author: More books, please!

Would I Recommend?: I recommend this entire series! I recommend this author!

Similar To: I would say it's a tamer version of the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) world. I say this very loosely.

A really enjoyable listen

You know what I love about this series, I'm this many books in and I still want to know what's going to happen. I love the way characters from other books are involved. it's great to see a slightly different aspect of the world. I don't really remember Ladon being mentioned in the other books but his character and his story intrigued me. Troy Duran and Sarah L Colton do such a good job of the narration I can tell who is who just by listening. So, so good.

Ladon and Gen!

Genevieve has endured a lot of loss in her life which has resulted in her not allowing many people close but she is a member of the Verascue family and has a few close friends. Although she knows that she is loved at times she feels like she is on the outside looking in until Ladon comes into her life.

Ladon is part of the Quikavond pack of shifters however since he has no special gifts he too feels like he is on the outside looking in. When he meets Gen the attraction is immediate but between her being a vampire and him being human and the escalating danger surrounding their pack things are about to become very complicated for these fated mates.

Romance, intrigue and surprises as we get to not only see Gen and Ladon find their way to each other but we also get to catch up with the other characters we know and love. I listened to an audio copy of this book and thought that the narrators did a great job with both the suspense and romance of the story. 🎧The Flock
