Sexy

I highly recommend this book to fans of kink. There is a focus on an alpha male pleasing his Mistress through his submission. The twist of the Mistress being a young vampire allows for a variety of naughty situations.

Overall a very sexy book.

A good deal of plot outside the romance, which I appreciate.

Very Enjoyable

I really enjoyed listening to Nightfall, Maxine Mitchell did a very good job narrating the story, I really liked Selene and Quinn and the whole cast of characters at After Hours. The story was believable and very enjoyable, I'll likely listen to it again sometime soon.

Maxine Mitchell destroys this story

I haven't finished Nightfall yet, but I'm so annoyed that I have to comment now. The story is good, and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next. However, it'll be a miracle if I get to the end because the narration is the worst I've ever heard. Maxine reads like she's an old time movie star where everything was so dramatic. She makes the heroine sound completely unbelievable. There are a number of times when Celine is supposed to sound monotone and cold, but Maxine goes right at it with her over the top inflection. The most irritating thing is that she doesn't make the D sound. Any word that ends in D, comes out as a T. Woun-t, instead of wound. Kin-t instead of kind, share-t instead of shared. I thought I was being too picky until I read some reviews of her other narrations . Quite a few people have mentioned Maxine's narration being off the mark. Does Audible read the reviews? I'll never listen to another book that's narrated by Maxine Mitchell and I may have to read the rest of this book rather than continue to listen to it. It's disappointing because she has narrated a lot of books in my favorite genre.

Good fit with the series

While this is the 11th book in Joey W. Hill's 16-book "Vampire Queen" series, it was only the second book in the series I had read. (I started with #16, so clearly I have no respect for order!) I have read numerous other titles by this author and this one was very much in keeping with her style but also unique to the characteristics of her Vampire Queen series.

Hill writes BDSM stories. In the Vampire Queen series, the Vampires are (usually) sexual Dominants, and their human servants are (usually) sexual submissives. In the case of this particular book, the Vampire/Dominant is female, and the human servant/submissive is a very "alpha male" sort of guy. I think Hill handles the dynamic well and respectfully: while Selene (the Vampire) certainly wants to dominate Quinn (the human servant), she doesn't want to humiliate or emasculate him, and Quinn is happy to explore their power exchange as long as it takes place in generally private surroundings.

Since this was only the second book in this series that I had read, I wasn't really well-versed in the politics of the vampire culture that is central to the series. I got an up-close-and-personal view of it in this book and, well, it's pretty brutal. Very brutal. Exceedingly brutal. Because I wasn't as familiar with this series, I wasn't really expecting the Punisher-level of graphic violence that is presented here, and it caught me off guard. (The only thing that "rationalizes" the violence in this series is that vampires and their human servants have amazing and lightning-fast healing abilities. They can withstand a great deal of physical damage, and while the damage DOES hurt, they will recover from it fully within a few hours or a day as long as they have blood and rest.)

One quibble I had with the story itself is that I thought Quinn acted very foolishly in the final chapters. Despite many others (vampires and humans alike) telling him to not act, he put his head down and bulled his way on through, which then created a situation he had to be rescued from. Since human servants can live for three or four centuries, it's reasonable to hope he'll wise up over time. But in this story, he acted like a lunkhead.

This story is co-authored by Desiree Holt and is presented as a crossover, but I can't tell which series of Holt's this one ties into. I wish I knew, because I'd maybe be interested in checking out some of the others. Her website didn't really say.

Also, this book does have elements of M/M, so if that's not your cuppa, steer clear.

Very exciting hot & unexpected romance

I’ve loved every hot erotic word that Ms Holt writes, this is my first from Ms Hill, the duo penned a great story. I wasn’t expecting vampires but the story and love between the two was amazing. They had such respect for each other and hot erotic love. Narrator Ms Mitchell did a terrific job. Don’t miss this one.

Wow, this angle on a vampire romance, is sure different

I liked most of this book. It had a good plot with lots of action. The sex scenes are hot but, may make someone who is conservative, somewhat uncomfortable. There is a dominant/submissive relationship and the dominant is the Heroine; who is a vampire. There is also a M/F/MM sexual encounter that includes bondage and sodomy. There is quite a bit sexual activity in the book so Trying to FF through those parts would probably shorten the book by 1/3.
This Vampire book has a few different twists, to the legends so I don’t think it will seem like the same old same ole. Enjoy!

Good, not great

I liked it. Didnt love it, though.
The sexy parts were drool-worthy. Amazing.
The romance, especially from the H part, was beyond sweet.
Her attitude as a vampire, very well handled.
The narrator, FLAWLESS.
Then why didnt I love it? Too much drama and vampire-politics got in the way. And too much unrestricted violence. Who knows me will think this is weird of me, because I hate rushed resolutions, and Im not squimish, but this book just took too damn much out of the story, making it slow and boring at some points, when more interaction between the main charcters and a deepening of their relashionship would've been waaaay better.
Still, like I said, I liked it. I'd read more from the series and the author, although not right now.
