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.


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.


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?


When I first started reading Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark, I wanted to read Lothaire's book. My favorite type of hero are the ones that are evil or are just mostly bad. They are always the ones that fall in love the hardest. Their whole being goes into the other person. It just makes you love the character twice as much as you already would have. And Lothaire should be the spokes model for every bad boy.

In previous books, Lothaire does what he wants when he wants and doesn't care what anyone else thinks. Now we see a more "human" side of him so to speak. I really don't want to go into any details because I think you should read the book yourself it's that good. She created the perfect hero (so swoon worthy it's ridiculous) and heroine. Which brings me to Ellie. I loved her. She reminded me a lot of myself and my family. My mother's side of the family is actually from the mountains in Virginia, so I thought it was pretty funny to see the perceptions of mountain folk. Lol. Ellie was a spitfire with a country drawl that I couldn't get enough of. She stole my heart just like Lothaire. There couldn't be a better match for him. :)

I really don't know how Kresley comes up with her books ideas. Her books are creative and addicting reads that you can't seem to put down once they are started. So run your behind to your car and go buy the book, because this is a book worthy to have in actual print. Hell, buy two so you can put the cover somewhere so you can stare at it all the time. Lol!


The best of all the IAD series yet. Now we just have to wait for Nix's and see who is the best then. :)

I so wanted to take Ellie's place in the bed with Lothaire. He can kidnap me anytime he wants! ;)
