Publisher's Summary

Life is what happens when you're making other plans. Boy did it! Lauren graduated top of her class, ready for her career in genetic research. But when she was presented with the opportunity to study the most amazing thing she'd ever seen, a virus that completely rewrites human DNA, altering someone to become a Vampire, she couldn't refuse. When she realized that the research society were actually the villains, that the Vampires were not evil, or undead, she helps them destroy the lab where she worked. Now, she's enemy number one, living a life in hiding... if they find her, they'll kill her. The last thing she needs is any contact at all with that forbidden world. And yet, as careful as she is to stay off of everyone's radar, she's drawn back into the world of blood and sex she'd never really been a part of anyway. A vampire crash-lands at her feet late one night downtown Chicago, drunk, sexy, and too compelling. No, no way! She can't let him in.
Bryn's been drinking and partying nonstop for 300 years, a life that always seemed satisfying to an old vampire who had no interest in any serious pursuits. It was enough to have a good time, sleep, and do it all over again the next night. A bad decision to "borrow" a motorcycle after too many bourbons in Chicago brings a woman into his life that he wanted, badly, but she had no interest at all...she knew his Vampire world and walked away from him.
A chance meeting that leads a drunken Vampire, and a lost woman through danger, the rain forest, and sex like neither one of them have ever known. Yes, life does happen while we're making other plans!

Driving his motorbike while drunk was a really bad idea for loveable bad boy Bryn because it landed him at the feet of Lauren, a human woman hiding from the revenge of an evil Mastermind who kidnaps and experiments on non-humans. Because once he meets her Bryn feels responsible for her and gets caught in a web of intrigue and destruction to protect her….. but the biggest danger for him is falling in love.

This has most of the characters/Firsts from the other books plus more in this exciting story that contains all the usual elements C L Quinn likes to put in her books… thrilling action, nail-biting suspense, hot sex, humor, twists, danger and more because the vamps were all wrong when they underestimated just what a mad human could do.

Worth a credit? Great plot and ongoing storyline, great characters, a great author and a great narrator made this a great PNR listen and very creditworthy.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"


What made the experience of listening to Days of Redemption the most enjoyable?

It was just good...I love this series!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lauren...even though her self doubt drove me crazy...Lauren is very honorable though...and strong...she is a good person!

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

Pyper once again is queen of the accents...I like her style very much..she has a certain cadence that takes a bit to get used to, but I couldn't imagine these stories being told by anyone else now!

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

When Lauren and Bryn finally decide they were going to be together..they went back and forth so much...and I kept telling myself, if they didn't end up together, I was going to be so mad!!

Any additional comments?

After 6 books into this universe, I see many things happening...and it fascinates me that these men and women can live so many lifetimes...and love so much...I am so glad Bryn and Lauren made it work...Bryn is a funny guy...a vampire alcoholic...who would of known? I am worried about Tamsen...she is actually one of my most fave characters..and I am excited to listen to her story next!!!!
