Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole continues her electrifying Immortals After Dark series with this thrilling tale, revealing secrets of the Lore, fierce realm of the immortals....
All fear the enemy of old.
Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.
A deadly force dwells within her.
Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder - or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.
Centuries of cold indifference shattered.
Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past - or risk everything for a future with her?

Lead female voice work is very distracting
Even though I am a big Kresley Cole fan I could not get past the main female character's voice. I had to stop listening (and plan to buy the paper book). The narrator and male character voice work is very good so I really hate to give such a bad review. Having a thick accent is one thing, but the female lead comes off as incredibly stupid. I was raised in Arkansas and am used to a lot of deep southern accents, many of which from people with very limited education, but this audiobook's southern voice work is just too grating for me.
Mr. Petkoff's neutral and male voice work is very enjoyable, but he needs a female partner to read the female lines. I think performing voiceovers for the opposite sex in a non-comedy is a serious challenge for any performer, so this advice is to the producers of audiobooks rather than to the performer himself. The qualities of a beautiful deep masculine voice do not lend themselves to realistic female voices.The listener empathizes with the lead characters. Most readers/listeners of the romance genre are women so female voice work is just as important as the male voice work. If you want to sell more audiobooks, pay for two narrators.
