The Illusions of Eventide is volume 1 in the House of Crimson and Clover series and the recommended starting point for new listeners.
Nicolas Deschanel was betrayed by the only two people who mattered to him. Their disloyalty stung, and an overwhelming sense of loss lingers. Nicolas has lived the high life, professing to not have a care in the world, and now this illusion is calling his bluff.
Determined to take control of an existence now devoid of purpose, he sojourns to his family's holiday home on the Gulf of Mexico. Resolved more than depressed, he plans to privately say good-bye to a world that no longer needs him. Of questionable fortune, he finds a woman, Mercy, sitting alone on the shore at eventide. Nicolas is conflicted between an obligation to help and annoyance at her intrusion.
Mercy has many layers of secrets. Deepest of all, she cannot tell this Child of Man she is thousands of years old and very powerful. In her presence, Nicolas' own dormant powers begin to surface, triggering a sequence of events that cause both of their lives to spiral further out of control. When old friends from both sides come to help, together they all learn a painful truth: New life can begin only once you've set free what means the most.

This is a good but confusing series
Any additional comments?
I really enjoy this series. It is not chronologically posted so it does get a little confusing keeping up with what's current and what's happened. I do recommend this series to readers that enjoy fantasy style stories of magical beings. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

should not be in any sci-fi collection
This not a science fiction / fantasy novel. I wouldn't even call it paranormal romance. I read the prequels and got through half of this book before I gave up.
this is a group of stories about dysfunctional people who use sex as a tool. sex as reward for doing good things (her words, not mine). sex (rape) as punishment for upsetting a relationship between brothers. mystery? it tries to be a murder mystery but doesn't succeed because you learn of the obsession in the beginning. all references to powers (up until I quit reading the book) seemed like an after thought. EVERYTHING felt like filler between sex "scenes". if you believe sci-fi/ fantasy should be the primary focus of the story this is not for you.
