Lothaire ( Immortals After Dark #12 ) by Kresley Cole

Lothaire by Kresley Cole
Excerpt

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?

Review

I'm not really a fan of IAD series because I don't like to read heavily romance book with weak plot whereby H/H usually have instant love and attraction at the first sight. It took away all the mystery. However, due to the rave review and honestly the COVER (yupe, I just can't help myself)....

So I started on Lothaire and hope it can workout as a standalone and it really did. Apart from the fact that I don't like the idea of him keep wanting to turn Ellie (ok, great sex can't be the excuse), the story was great. Although the book was heavily on the romance and very little about the plot, I enjoyed myself very much with what both H/h was doing in the room. :Blush:


Rating 4/5
