Feelings kill faster than bullets.
That is Drake's creed. A legend, a renegade, a ruthless, powerful enigma understood by no one and feared by all, Viktor "Drake" Drakovich heads up a billion-dollar empire - and shows no mercy to the many enemies who would stop at nothing to destroy him. He is a man with no love and no weakness, until....
Grace Larsen takes Drake's breath away the first time he sees her and quickly becomes his obsession. Never before has he burned for someone the way he desires this hauntingly beautiful artist who is plagued by troubling dreams. He aches to possess her, to protect her, to carry her to new heights of sensuous arousal and rapturous release.
But entering Drake's world means becoming a target for relentless, bloodthirsty foes have been eagerly waiting for him to expose his weak spot. And the price of their passion may be their lives.

GOOD STORY vs. BAD NARRATOR

I wish the Publishers would give the type of narrator a book needs a little bit more thought, if this had been read by a guy then I'd be giving it a whole different review but instead and alas Karen White's narration was sadly lacking.

I had it playing on double speed so I enjoyed the story, yes it was a bit cheesy, a billionaire arms dealer is nearly killed, he knows who did it but all he thinks of is "touching her" or "holding her" - where's the revenge........ Oh yeah at the end for one particularly bad guy.

Worth a credit? Listen to an excerpt first then make up your mind.

I wanted to love this audio book

I love this story and have since I first read it - Lisa Marie Rice writes wonderful stories. Her books always find a place on my keeper shelves.

IMO this is such a man's story that it really needed a man narrating the hero. The characterization by Ms. White just didn't work for me. In the book he's in his 30's, big and powerful, but in the audio book he sounds like the guy who waits on me at the local deli - who's about 80, 5'2 and 100 pounds soaking wet.

I finished listening to the book, but I really had to work hard to make that happen. I doubt that I will ever listen to it again.

I hope different, really different choices are made for the performer, if more of LMR's books get recorded. If it's the same reader, I just won't buy the recording.
