Publisher's summary

It was immediate for Roman. In 3,000 years, he'd never lost control of his emotions, or his heart. But the moment he laid eyes on Evelynne Farrow, he knew she was the woman who haunted his dreams. And everything changed. Everything. Evie Farrow has always loved a good vampire romance. In fact, she makes a living writing them. While sitting in a coffee shop and working on her next mega-hot book, Evie is approached by a tall, dark, and handsome man who could have been pulled directly from one of her novels.

Unbeknownst to her, Roman D'Angelo is exactly what he appears to be - a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the king of vampires. Unfortunately, while Roman is both ancient and invulnerable, Evie is flesh and blood. Just as Roman decides that he and Evie have a date with destiny, for reasons of their own, an ancient god and a homicidal vampire take an equally strong interest in her. Can Roman fight off the incredible forces that would have Evie as their own long enough to win her heart? Or will destiny betray him and destroy everything he has ever dreamed of?

Good story - Terrible Narration

This narrator takes a good story that jumps between different settings with different groups of characters and makes no effort to help the listener transition between them.

The 'almost monotone' narration creates a situation where you can be a paragraph into a new setting with the new characters and you're confused, as if you were following a path then suddenly lost your way. It just makes what should be a pleasant listening experience into too much work to keep the story straight in your mind.

I'll read the story myself and pray the author did a better job with the transitions.
