Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole continues her electrifying Immortals After Dark series with this thrilling tale, revealing secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals....

All fear the enemy of old.

Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.

A deadly force dwells within her.

Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder - or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.

Centuries of cold indifference shattered.

Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past - or risk everything for a future with her?

    "COULDN'T STOP LISTENING!!!!"

    Well I've just finished this fantastic book and I feel it was well worth losing a weekend over. It had everything - hot handsome sexy vampire, good story, great narrator, steamy love scenes and of course romance - what more can you ask for.

    Never stop writing Kresley and let's have more books by her on Audible please please please 'cause there's a chunck of books missing in the series.

    "Best story yet!!"
    What other book might you compare Lothaire to and why?

    Dark Needs at Night's Edge, maybe I'm just a sucker for bad boys that you gotta love! Their behavior can be "horrible", but when you find out what makes them that way, your heart breaks with them.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is the best male author I have listened to this far.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, cringed, held my breath, cried and sighed.


    Any additional comments?

    This book seemed full. With a little bit of everything that has happened since the start. Because of that you have a lot of back story that's interesting but it adds on to the prior stories from a different view. Totally worth the wait..

    "ANOTHER HOME RUN"

    This will be short and sweet as all I need to do is tell you to read ANY of my Audible reviews on Ms. Cole's Immortals After Dark books and you'll pretty much get the picture. Ms Cole is a brilliant character-maker, plot-developer, culture creator and humorist. This book absolutely slayed me with the female lead..Elizabeth. She was one the funniest, most challenging and smartest females Ms Cole has developed yet...right up there with Regin the Radiant and my favorite of all, Nucking Futs Nix.

    As for the narration....they don't come any better than Mr. Petkoff. His Elizabeth was so well done, I could have sworn she was right in the room with me.

    Story
    "POWER, PASSION, PRIDE AND INTENSITY"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lothaire to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version, but if the audio is anything to go by, the print in my opinion would pale in comparison, but I was sold hook line and sinker on the audio because Robert Petkoff did justice in bringing this book alive and carried you to places you wouldn't have imagined possible with his narrating skills. His character voices are very sexy, touching you in all the right places, spurning you when it gets contentious then delivers that balance to every character and leaves you spent wanting more. He takes you on an intense ride. Guaranteed!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Elizabeth's street smart or mountain-smarts and her determination to rival for Lothaire's love, bringing him back from his near insanity and showing him true happiness.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have no particular because i was lost in the development of each plot.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are several, but to mention 3: (1) I was moved when Elizabeth seemed doomed to die, (2) Lothaire's sensitivity to Elizabeth's virginity and a desire to take care of her and (3) Elizabeth being turned out of Nicks sanctuary to fend for herself when Lothaire seemed unconcerned for her well being because of unspoken shared feelings.


    Any additional comments?

    Robert Petkoff brought this book to life. It was like a movie without the picture and he totally rocked it. He is a GREAT NARRATOR. You get lost in his intensity and he delivered an orgasmic performance. He has become one of my favorite narrators.

    "LOVED THIS BOOK!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I LOVED THIS BOOK BOTH WRITTEN AND AUDIO. I LOVED THE NARRATED MALE VOICES. THE ONLY THING I DIDN'T LIKE WAS THE FEMALE LEADS VOICE.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    I LOVED THE MALE VOICES HE DID.

    "Lothaire: Immortals after Dark"

    The book is very cleaverly writen with lots of twists and keeps you entertained all the way to the end. Robert Petkoff narrates the book to the N degree, he adds so much to the characters with his voice and style. I just can not wait to have a nother book narrated by him. A realy good combination of writting and reading.

    Love this series . Robert Petkoffs narration is a class act . I feel he would make a telephone directory sound sexy .
    The whole Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole are narrated by Petkoff so a good series is made an excellent series . Well worth the credit . In fact I purchased extra to listen to more of the series as just one book a month wasn't going to be enough ...

    "learn tto trust your inner voice"

    i love all the Kresley Cole books so far, I enjoy learning more about the new characters and the lore having been brought up with the paranormal being Wiccan by belief I'm more open than some although some would say gullible or crazy. throughout these stories they have one thing in common, learning to trust your gut instinct no matter how unlikely. Never judge a book by its cover. I know from my own experience that when ever I have gone against my gut instinct I have come a cropper ( something bad has happened ) The one thing I know for sure is that if these kind of being ever became known to humans for want of a better description they would fear them so want to destroy them. What they don't understand they can't control, what they can't control is a threat. I wish I had the courage to write a book however my knowledge of full stops paragraphs and other essential literacy skills, leave a lot to be desired. This would also apply to travellers from other worlds and people with skills that would come under the label of paranormal no might whether they were good or dark it would not matter Military would want to use them religious people destroy them, Head doctors lock them away as insane as I said what they can't understand. So no different than the burning times of the medieval period in time. I like how Kresley builds the characters you feel you know them and can imagine what they look like how they would react to different situations even understand their fears this is a skill in itself.

    "Oh, Lothaire!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Of course I recommend this Audiobook. We waited an age for LOTHAIRE and I had to buy the Hardback because I couldn't wait for the paperback but now I have this and I am so pleased that now I have the set!<br/>Robert Petkoff is a delightful narrator and these books would not be the same without him; his characterization of each person is second to none and the lovely Russian accent is spine tingling. He can do any accent that may be called for and we believe it gladly.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As I enjoyed all the other books leading to this one I was well disposed to love this one, too.<br/>It was 'The Enemy of Old', so who cannot love him?


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    Robert Petkoff is just brilliant! I am very wary of American accents and I think the women who narrate many of these Paranormal favourites of mine actually spoil the books; they require a very talented male voice like the above narrator.
