The Warlord Wants Forever...the sensually charged novella that started it all, now with an exclusive excerpt from MacRieve!
In this scorching series opener, New York Times best seller Kresley Cole introduces the captivating Immortals After Dark series. The book also includes an exclusive extended excerpt from MacRieve, the highly anticipated next installment in the series.
Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his bride, the one woman who can "blood" him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body - and soul.
Famed throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, Myst has devoted her life to protecting a magical jewel and to fighting the vampires.
Wroth provides her with the perfect opportunity to torment her sworn enemy - for with his new heartbeat comes a consuming sexual desire that can be slaked only by her. Denying him, she flees, struggling to forget his searing, possessive kiss.
The Hunt is on
She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen her enchanted jewel, giving him absolute power over her. Now that she's his for the taking, he intends to make her experience firsthand the agonizing, unending lust she subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Nikolai realizes he wants far more than vengeance from Myst and frees her, will she come back to him?

I am a Wife, a Mum and a Grandma. I am also strong willed and wilfil at times. I have worked all my life and drempt for wining the lottery
Tales of Valkyries, Vampires and ghouls . This is a prequel to the series 'Immortal After Dark'.
It tells the story of Myst and Nikolai Wroth which is an important relationship in later books. Powerful story as always with a good narration by Robert Petkoff.
Parts of this and later books in the series can be sexually graphic so if you don't like that sort of thing don't read it. For me it doesn't matter either way but I do prefer attentive kind love.
"Robert Petkoff made me buy it"
Love all the IAD series, but had skipped this one. So glad they remade the audible with R.P. Great story and makes me want to start over with the rest of the series. Noticed audible doesn't seem to have pre order on upcoming releases, hope the will consider giving us that to look forward to (as long as R.P. is the narrator).
"Wonderful new beginning"
Yes, because it is a revamped version of the original but most importantly because it now has the right narrator! Robert Petkoff was meant to be the narrator of this entire series.
Myst--it was like getting to meet her all over again.
Yes, It was just as phenomenal as the other IAD books he has narrated.
Yes and I did.
So many Easter eggs dispersed in this that give hints as to what is to come in the series. Great new beginning.
"Much better with Robert Petkoff narrating"
Love all Kresley Coles books... glad they re-released this book with Petkoff. He did a great job with the rest of this series. He brings the books to life!
Wish this book had been longer!
"So glad they remade with Robert Petkoff!"
As always, Excellent! Nothing but love! This series is awesome! Love the narrator's voice. The story really comes to life
"Loved it even more with Robert at the helm."
Robert brings something more to yhe table. I had already fell in love with Mist and Roth. To have theire story brought to life with the voice of the series just made it that much more.
"A voice like no other!!"
Petkoff can read anything to me at any time! His ability to drag you in and make you love the characters he voices is incredible. He doesn't just read, like some voice actors, he actually acts. Even the females get a voice from him. Although, I will admit, it did feel somewhat naughty having him give such a voice to such a steamy book but I think I'll recover tolerably. ;-)
"Narrated by Robert Petkoff... need I say more!"
I love this whole series and was please when I found out that this was being narrated by Robert Petkoff the BEST narrator EVER! I read the book and now I listen to it and its awesome! Worth every penny.
I love how the characters are written, the plot and of course the narrator.
Everything!!! I love how he brings the story to life. His voice acting is superb. AMAZING!!!
You'll want more...
Buy the whole series you wont regret it!
"it's Robert Petkoff... need i say more?"
IAD is my favourite series. I listen and relisten to everything in this series. I'm so excited that Robert Petkoff has re-narrated this book. I was just thinking to myself what a shame that i had to re-read this one. it's not so easy for a new mom. NOW MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE! I could re-listen anytime i want.
If you love paranormal. action. and STEAMY HOT romance. this book is definitely for you! Kresley wrote this book in such a way that tempt you to finish in 1 seating. And Robert has made this book even more..... <3 *sigh*
"Robert Petkoff is IAD"
This book is everything romance and heat should be. Robert Petkoff must always read IAD
"So glad this was redone!"
