Publisher's Summary

In Night Pleasures, Kyrian of Thrace - an immortal who protects humans from vampires - wakes up one morning handcuffed to the one thing that can scare him: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. But Amanda Devereaux turns out to be his perfect partner for hunting down a deadly foe, and for helping him to regain his soul - and learn that love doesn't have to bite.

Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

    "Fantastic!"

    I really loved this one. Sherri's second novel is worth a read!!! Very dramatic and steamy, heart pounding but rewarding right up to the end.

    "Kierian of Thrace Nightwalker"

    Carrington did a great narration to this email n going Series . Kierian the Nightwalker is a intriguing. mysterious character. His life story is one agonizing experience of loss. His way back to trust and love kept me engaged in the outcome of his story.

    "listen for yourself, I enjoyed it!"

    I read all the negative reviews, and almost didn't bit this book. I'm glad I did. I found it very enjoyable, and will get the next book in the series now. if you like Linsay Sands, I Think you'll enjoy these too.

    "Writing Style"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I couldn't get past 20min into the audiobook. The writing style tends to repeat the same information TOO often and the main character lost my interest.
    Best guess on who would enjoy this book: someone who is interested in an unrealistic fantasy relationship with Mr. Perfect and Plain Jane.

    "The bigger you are the harder you fall!"

    Kyrian of Thrace has met his match. As a Dark-Hunter, he is immortal and has fought the enemies of humans for thousands of years. He believes he will never be anything but what he is, however he has not met Amanda. An accountant. Really? An accountant?

    However the attraction between them grows to a raging fire and for the first time in his immortal life, he wonders is he can trust her--love her. If he can trade his immortality for love.

    Artemis, a selfish and vengeful goddess who creates the Dark-Hunters, despises the fact that any of her creations may wish to give up their life as a Hunter to pursue a future that includes life and light.

    What can convince her to let him go? True love?

    Story
    "Very difficult to rate"
    What disappointed you about Night Pleasures?

    It was so difficult to ignore the terrible accents of the narrator that I couldn't listen to the story. It was distracting and I didn't make it past 40 minutes.


    What was most disappointing about Sherrilyn Kenyon’s story?

    I'm going to have to buy the book, to read the story. I can't comment on it.


    What didn’t you like about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?

    The author described someone as having a Southern drawl, like honey. The narrator translated this to "annoying twang".


    Any additional comments?

    It's unfortunate that I don't listen to books right away. I've had this book since 2009 and now it's too late to get a refund of the wasted credit.

    "Too Sexy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Night Pleasures to be better than the print version?

    ???
    I listen to audio books because I love stories but my ADD doesn't allow me to sit down to read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night Pleasures?

    I like the weapons.


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    Her accents are clear & her characters are distinctively clear.


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

    I laughed out loud at a few parts. I like the smart add wit. However I would like the story better if it left out some of the sex.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not into erotica books. I like these vampire/dark hunter/greek god stories but I can do without all the sex.

    "Southern accent was irritating!"

    I love Sherrilyn's books and especially love listening to them at work. I'm really glad that I started with books that were narrated by Holter Graham or Fred Berman because if I had started with this one, I'm not positive I would have bought another audio book. Carrington's narration, especially with her long drawn out far too sweet southern accent, grated on my nerves. Amanda was far from a "Southern Bell" but that's how Carrington made her sound. One can be born and raised in the deep south and not sound like Scarlet O'Hara! Fortunately the story line won out for me, I persevered through the cavity inducing southern accent and enjoyed the story overall. I may avoid Carrington's narrations of Sherrilyn's other books if she does more of them. Give me Fred Berman or Holter Graham any day!

    Story
    "Can I get my money back, please?"
    What would have made Night Pleasures better?

    The narrator, while having a pleasant enough speaking voice, made me want to grind my teeth every time she attempted a New Orleans/Southern accent. I grew up in the south in a southern family with southern friends, including some from New Orleans, and the only time I've heard a accent that bad was when somebody's telling a joke where a southerner is the butt. Ms MacDuffie may be an excellent narrator for some work, but she should avoid works where a southern accent is required.


    Any additional comments?

    I looked at this book because I enjoyed the Chronicles of Nick series, which I found out was a spin off of the Night-Hunter series. Hoping to get back stories on the characters from the chronicles, I thought I would listen to this series. At only 1 hour and 20 minutes in, I was so disgusted with the narrator's terrible southern accent and constant repetition of the two main character's appraisal of each other's sexual attributes that I had to quit the book. This is coming from a person who has an OCD that will not let me stop in the middle of a book or series of books. In fact, out of over 200 audio books this is only the second one that I will not be finishing. While I recommend the Chronicles of Nick spin off series, I warn others to save their credits for something else.

    "For Warned is For Armed! Not as bad Others Say."
    Would you try another book from Sherrilyn Kenyon and/or Carrington MacDuffie?

    Yes/ and only because I don't have a choice in Narrators for audio books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Carrington MacDuffie?

    Holter Garham


    Any additional comments?

    I fell in love Ms. Kenyon's work with the Chronicles of Nick series so came here looking for more info about the characters, in particular Kyrain and Acheron. I did not have high expectations for this book after reading the other reviews. Because of this I was pleasantly surprised. The narration is almost as bad as people described however better then I expected. I listen to all books a 1.5 or 2x speed and I think the way the women drolled on at speed 1 would have probably driven me crazy. The other thing that helped was listening to Acheron first.It was really nice learning about so many things that are hinted at in the Chronicles of Nick like the truth about Kyrain's wife and such.
    The best thing about the book is the characterization. The characters are witty and compelling
    The worst thing for me about the book was all the sex. My wife would never believed I listened to such a "smutt book." I love Urban Fantasy (Jim Butcher is my favorite author of all time) However it sucks to be a man who likes Urban fantasy because 90% of it is Urban Romantic Fantasy and 40% minum of those books seem like nothing more than sex and emotional foreplay.
    Next book I intend to listen to is Seize the Night so I can found out the story behind how things went so bad between Acheron and Nick.
