After 20 years incarcerated in a vampire prison, Luther is finally free. But before he can close this chapter of his life once and for all, a kidnapping thrusts him back into the world of Scanguards and into a confrontation with the vampires whose mates he very nearly killed two decades earlier. Actress Kimberly "Katie" Fairfax has turned her back on Hollywood and now teaches drama at a college in San Francisco. When Scanguards owner Samson's daughter disappears during a performance, Katie blames herself for inadvertently putting Isabelle in the path of danger. Realizing that Luther may be the only one who can rescue Samson's daughter, she forges a tenuous alliance with the inscrutable stranger. As passion ignites between them, they not only have to fight against the unknown foe, but also against the darkness within themselves that could destroy them before they can rescue Isabelle.

This book transports the listener twenty years into the future. Luther, the villain from book 2, gets out of vampire prison for his attempted murder of Amaury's mate and child. We got to see the author attempt to redeem Luther.
I had a hard time buying Katie and Luther as a couple, but I did like Luther's side of the story. I am glad he is now on the right side. This series is just up and down for me. This was one of the just okay listens.
Vampire Luther deserved his 20 year sentence for trying to kill Samson's pregnant wife Delilah but he had his misguided reasons for seeking revenge on Samson and Aumury (book 2). But what he didn't deserve was the cruelty inflicted on him while in the Vamp Prison, cruelty that left him a scarred and haunted shell of the man he once was. Haunted by memories of his happy past that so quickly got snatched away from him leaving heartache and a bitter man in its wake.
Over half of the Scanguards, their partners and their now grown offspring, were at the University of San Fransisco where the Drama Department were putting on the Shakespearian Play A Midsummer Night's Dream that Isabelle, Samson and Delilha's 20 year Hybrid daughter was performing in. Security was tight, nothing was left to chance, but it still ends up being a nightmare of epic proportions when their beloved daughter is kidnapped beneath their noses. Beautiful Katie is the Drama Teacher, an ex Movie Star and a Witch with no powers and she feels responsible but it'll turn out she is much more heavily involved than anybody realises. And, as fate steps in, Luther was outside when all Hell broke loose and he became the No.1 suspect.
Later Luther and Katie meet and there's instant attraction and sizzling chemistry but, physically and mentally scarred Luther, tries to resist the pull but Katie could see his vulnerability and his soft side so she wanted this dominant, hardass Alpha Vampire and, after showing some irresistible feminine charms, hallelujah...... she unleashes a sex starved passionate thoughtful lover. They work together to catch the kidnapper always knowing that their romance had an expiry date because Luther had no intentions of sticking around.... being hated by everyone except Katie.
As Luther gets a second chance at happiness there's lots of drama, action, suspense and a twist as he, Katie and the Scanguards have to unite to piece together clues, track down and outwit a very clever kidnapper before Isabelle's time runs out. And, in doing so, Luther finally atones for his sins, receives forgiveness, finds redemption and discovers love when he thought he didn't deserve it, wasn't looking for it, didn't want it, was walking away from it and yet, when it's in mortal danger, he suddenly realises he was going to fight for it, cling onto it and never let it go.
There's a host of loveable characters from previous books and their Hybrid teenage and adult children and Tina Folsom has expertly moved the series ahead 20 years to make way for the offspring of our favourite couples from all the previous books to get involved in the stories and I can't wait to see what she does with it next.
Worth a credit? Dual POV, great narration by Eric Dove, plenty of passion and sex and an exciting and enjoyable storyline with a cast of old and new loveable characters..... so, if you're a PNR lover, what more can you ask for from a credit.
