Nicole Ashe is the average American girl, except that she happens to work for a vampire and doesn't realize it. But all that changes when her boss sends her to convince a local rock musician – heartthrob, to help them retrieve an ancient relic that could be the answer to the vampire's curse. Nicole soon discovers that Alec is a vampire...and completely irresistible.

ORIGINAL!! ENTERTAINING!! AND SEXY !!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Born to Darkness to be better than the print version?

Oh my .... I can say that I truly LOVE this audio book, Born To Darkness, sooooo much, and I would have to say the audio was just as good as reading the book, but maybe even "more" enjoyable because the narrators voices were so perfectly cast on this audio book. The music throughout the audio was haunting and seductive and really added to the mysterious ambience and encouraged you to keep listening. Each character was perfectly portrayed, highly engaging and totally engrossing the listener. Such a great new story line that took on a different avenue which I found thought provoking and a more fulfilling listen. The chapters moved at such an unrestrained pace that as I neared the end, I was like 'noo - there's got to be more!!" Nicole and Alec were love at first sight ... and the "BELIEVABLE" kind at that. Alec was exactly how I would find a male vampire to be in the most erotic, seductive way. I loved the history of the vampires and their ancient beliefs. The side characters were awesome and added a great depth to the overall audio experience.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Born to Darkness?

I think I loved the parts most when Nicole would make herself vulnerable and offer herself to Alec (her romantic counterpart), and Alec would just turn and walk away. What man/vampire in his right mind (or even wrong mine) would walk away from a beautiful woman like that? And he did so, because he loved her that much ! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh .......


Which scene was your favorite?

The discovery's of 'who was who' and WHAT WAS WHAT were the best parts, These are the twists that take you in the direction you were not headed for my friends ....


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

yes and no. I like for adventures to last, so I wanted the story to continue. It was a good length that gave you just enough of an earful to make you wish it was longer. But then I know this is how more books are sold ... in series and whatnot. So obviously, I'm on the look out for the next book that come after .. YES ... A CLIFFHANGER!!! sigh ...........


Any additional comments?

Born to Darkness audio book is a "WIN-WIN" on all accounts in the romance-paranormal-fantasy genre. It was surprisingly different from most vampire stories. This is where you will get hooked! .... Go Light Seekers!!!

By the way ... the author should sell black T-shirts that say 'LIGHT SEEKERS-R-US' or something like that. I would buy one!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Born to Darkness?

FINDING OUT WHO NICOLE'S FATHER WAS.


What does Lee James and Destiny Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I SO LOVED THE NARRATORS WIDE VARIETY OF NATIVE DIALECTS PERFORMED FOR THE MANY CHARACTERS IN THIS BOOK, BORN TO DARKNESS. THE CHEMISTRY WAS REALLY STRONG IN THE DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIPS IN THIS BOOK, AND NOT JUST 'READ' BY A NARRATOR ... YOU COULD FEEL THE TENSION BUILDING WITH THESE CHARACTERS - THE FEAR, THE DREAD, THE PASSION, THE SUSPENSE, EXCITEMENT, AND LOSSES ... WHICH IS MUCH BETTER DONE WITH BOTH A FEMALE AND MALE NARRATOR ( DESTINY LANDON & LEE JAMES) AS THEY PERFORMED EACH GENDER ROLE FLAWLESSLY. READING THE BOOK WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE, BUT IF YOU GET THE RIGHT NARRATORS LIKE LORRAINE ACCOMPLISHED ON HER BOOK BORN TO DARKNESS, THAN THE AUDIO WAS BETTER - JUST REALLY DID ENJOY THIS AUDIO LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT AUDIO BOOK IN THIS SERIES. I FOUND MYSELF LOST IN THE CHARACTERS, AKIN TO A MOVIE THAT IS PERFECTLY CAST. THE NARRATION WAS A PERFECT PACE - NOT TOO SLOW AND NOT ANNOYINGLY FAST. THE SHORT SHOTS OF HAUNTING MUSIC THAT CONNECTED THE CHAPTERS AND KEPT ME LISTENING (CLEVER!!), WERE REALLY WELL DONE AND ADDED A TOUCH OF INTEREST TO THE AUDIO.


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

PROBABLY THE LOSS OF JAY AND HOW ONE EVENT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE ... FOREVER.


Any additional comments?

This comment is my response to a review on Born To Darkness by MirjonaTirana, Albania 09-26-12 - DEAR MIRJONA, YOU WROTE A BAD REVIEW FOR THE WRONG BOOK!!!!! YOU MENTIONED "LONG PAUSES" BETWEEN CHAPTERS, A DULL STORY AND DULL NARRATION?????" MY GOD!! ! THIS AUDIO WAS NOT DULL!! AND THE CHAPTERS HAD BEAUTIFUL HAUNTING/SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC JOINING THE CHAPTERS, SO THERE WERE NO PAUSES ANYWHERE! THERE WERE SEVERAL NARRATORS ON THIS BOOK WHO PERFORMED MAGNIFICENTLY A WIDE VARIETY OF DIALECTS AND PERSONALITIES. I AM TIRED OF SEEING BAD RATINGS FROM JEALOUS TROLLS ON THE WEB WHO JUST MAKE IT A HABIT TO BRING DOWN POPULAR, RESPECTED AUTHORS.
