Stewart Glen, Scotland - 1514
Masked in a Gypsy guise, Broderick MacDougal hides his vampiric identity while seeking to destroy the man who slaughtered his family. When an old Clan rival ensnares Broderick in a trap using an enticing widow, he is compelled to discover if she is bait or an accomplice, and the cinnamon-haired beauty is his next conquest.
Widow of an abusive husband, Davina Stewart-Russell clings to the only image that gave her strength during those dark times - the Gypsy rogue who stole her heart as a youth. After nine years, she is finally face-to-face with him again, but reality clashes with fantasy as she is confronted with Broderick's passionate pursuit.
When Davina's past returns to haunt her, Broderick is forced to reveal a dark secret worse than anything Davina thought possible. The challenge before them has fatal risks and neither of them is prepared for the sacrifices expected for the sake of eternal love.
Listener Advisory: The abridged version of Midnight Conquest still includes all the original storyline details, action and nail-biting scenes of violence and domestic abuse. (Don't worry...the bad guys get it in the end!). However, the love scenes have been edited and are no longer described in graphic and direct language, in order to appeal to a wider audience. As such, there are no more "glistening folds" details. (Collective groan of disappointment ensues...) Though this story can be enjoyed by listeners slightly younger than 18, parental discretion is still advised.

An Engaging Emotional Roller Coaster..
He has the right voice, tone, pitch and pace..
The setting of the novel takes place during 16 th Century Scotland.
There is just about everything in this storyline including a Prophecy, Two Romances, Blood Slave(s), Gypsy Fortune Tellers, War-Death, and Betrayal.
Broderick, the main male leads, most pressing concern is seeking revenge against an enemy.
He has a chance encounter with Davina, the female lead, they both seem to leave some kind of impression on each other, too bad he meets her several years too soon..
Years pass by when they finally meet again and Davina's concern is that Broderick doesn't remember her.
I liked Broderick, he was a decent male lead and I also liked Davina who was strong in character yet also sweet.
Overall, the storyline is an engaging emotional roller coaster not for the faint of heart, however, the storyline pulls you in and rewards the reader with an ending that will alleviate the scenes of violence and angst.
David Monteath was the best person to do the narration. "Awesome Sauce"..
