Publisher's Summary

Buffalo, New York--thundering waterfalls, great sports teams...and a treacherous vampire lord who is slowly losing his mind.

New York City vampire Rajmund Gregor is the undisputed master of the Big Apple. He bows to no one but his sire, the vampire Lord Krystof, who has ruled the Northeast for hundreds of years. But when Krystof summons Rajmund to his headquarters in Buffalo, Raj finds his master slowly descending into madness and his territory crumbling around him.

Raj is the only one of Krystof's children strong enough to seize power, but he'll have to save his master before he can destroy him.

Several women have gone missing, and the local police are convinced a vampire is behind it. Is Krystof so lost to reality that he's capturing and murdering human women? Is a rogue vampire moving into Krystof's territory for the kill? Or is it something far more insidious, something that could threaten the existence of vampires everywhere?

Sarah Stratton is living a lie. Her past holds a secret she shares with no one--not even her good friend, Cynthia Leighton, the West Coast vampire lord's mate. It's a secret that could destroy her carefully constructed life as a professor at a Buffalo university. It's also a secret that could save the lives of the missing women. To save them, however, she must enter Buffalo's vampire community and put herself into the care of Rajmund Gregor.

But can she trust Raj, the dangerously seductive vampire who wants to lay claim to far more than her secrets?

ONE OF THE BEST VAMPIRE SERIES & A GREAT NARRATOR

This really is a great Vampire series to get caught up in.... there's hot hunky vamps, strong heroines and exciting plots and this one doesn't disappoint. Raj is the Master of New York and he has to bow down to his Sire who's The Lord of the Northeastern Vampires but who is slowly going insane. He has summoned Raj to Buffalo to try and find out who's been snatching young women from Blood Bars and why. Buffalo is where Sarah lives and he was instantly attracted to Sarah when he met her in NYC when she visited with her friend Cyn who is mated to Raphael (the powerful Lord of the West Coast) and now that he bumps into her again his attraction grows along with his sexual and blood urges, his possessiveness and his aggression if anyone else touches her. Sarah is also attracted to the sexy blonde Alpha Vampire but she has some deep secrets she's not willing to share even though they're working on solving the same case.

Slowly clues come together, attraction grows and there's lust filled kisses and witty banter but all Hell breaks loose when her secrets are revealed and Raj feels deeply betrayed but the clues are still building in the chilling kidnapping case. Sarah and Raj have a lot of verbal sparring with tensions rising and then their slowly building relationship suddenly explodes in some frenzied sex scenes (which are well worth the wait). Suddenly his take-over bid to be the Lord by defeating his Sire is coming to a climactic dramatic conclusion with only one winner. Then Sarah becomes one of the victims and he can't hold on to his temper because someone has betrayed them and someone's about to be turned to dust.

Dual POV's, non stop action in an exciting addictive plot, a few interesting secondary characters but the real joy came from the narrator who did a perfect job at all the different accents, the emotions and the dialogue and she turned a great book into an awesome listen.

Worth a credit? If you want a Vampire romance with a sexy hero, a strong heroine, an intense, romantic storyline and a great narrator then look no further than this listen which was definitely creditworthy. It could be a stand alone listen but it does have Raphael and Cyn from a previous book making an appearance and ends with them in a very chilling situation which is a big teaser for the next V.I.A. book.

A solid Paranormal Romance Series

I started this series with books 5, 6 and 7, and have now gone back to the beginning of the series to catch up. This is my third book in the series narrated by Traci Odom. Anyway, I'm still enjoying this series and will continue on to book 4.

Love this series!

Would you listen to Rajmund again? Why?

Absolutely ! listening to Raphael again now to start the series over while waiting for Sophia to come out on audible

What did you like best about this story?

The interaction between characters -the intensity humor loyalty and love

What does Traci Odom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a talented actress -she portrays the characters so varied that she has become the voice of cyn Raphael and All the others without falling into falsettos that grate on the readers nerves - she hits it just right

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yep -if I could

Any additional comments?

Hurry on Sophia and all the rest !!!

Rajmund

I loved the story. The narrator was good although I don't think Raymund's "voice" was as powerful as it could have been. Other than that, I really enjoyed this one.

THIS SERIES JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER

Any additional comments?

Fortunately Book Two didn't end in a cliffhanger so this starts out fresh. Raymond is a very loyal and powerful vampire in NYC, yet his obedience to his Lord has been stretched thin as Lord Krystol's age slowly drives him insane. Raj knows he will soon have to challenge his Lord and begins to plan for it when Krystof demands his presence and attention to a cryptic problem in Buffalo, NY. It just happens to be where Sarah lives. One past chance encounter with her that he's never forgotten. A cliffhanger ending that'll have you grabbing Book Four!<br/><br/>Wow. What a ride this book delivered!<br/>Traci Odom is her consistent best!<br/><br/>TWO THUMBS UP!

great continuation of a wonderful series

not the usual love story. Sarah is confident, strong,and independent. She has had to be. Raj is at a transitional phase of his life with lots of changes occurring. Waven together is a great continuation of a wonderful series

Great third book to series

Read these books on my kindle and they are really excellent I am just not massively keen on the narrator bizarrely as I find her depiction of the female characters a bit annoying but still definitely worth a listen
