There's no leverage like seduction...until love takes a bite of his plans.
As the Indiana Jones of historical erotica, there is no document existing - or just rumored to exist - Adin Tredeger can't unearth. Why he would risk the biggest coup of his career to join the mile-high club is beyond him. But the disarming, dark-eyed man who somehow enters Adin's locked airplane washroom has him completely nude and coming apart. All without a whimper of protest.
From that moment Adin and Donte Fedelta engage in an international battle of wit and cunning. The prize - a priceless, 500-year-old journal with illustrations so erotic it could make the Marquis de Sade blush. Yet Donte's desire for the journal goes far beyond simple possession. The undead nobleman wrote it. And he's not above using every trick in his otherworldly arsenal - including seduction - to get it back.
Chemistry draws them together even as fortune tugs them apart. But when a third party joins the chase, they must unite to fight an enemy with a deadly goal - to erase Donte from history.
This audiobook is a rerelease of a previously published book, with substantial rewrites. This title was originally released as Notturno.
Warning: This product contains one cocky college professor, one centuries-old vampire who is out to show him who's at the top of the food chain, and red wine. Because it goes so well with humble pie.

"Better in audio format"
I read the ebook several months before the audio version was released. It was 3.5 story for me, which I upped to 4 stars in my review. Upon experiencing it on audio, I'm upping the rating to 4.5 stars for a perfect narration that truly brought the story to life. I still appreciated the nicely developed characters and colorful secondary characters, that it was very well written and edited, and was dark without being morose. The long journal passages from Notturno that nearly bored me to death in the book took on a wholly different light when read aloud in a decent Italian accent. They were so beautiful presented this way and changed my perception of Donte.
More enjoyable in audio format!
"Well I loved it!!"
It was an easy listen good drama action a great start to the series I hope all the books will be in audio...
Narration was good really enjoyed, as this is first time I have heard from this narrator I was a bit iffy in buying but have to say I really was happy with the work he did.
I'm not sure what the other reviews were about, yes it wasn't the best story for this author but what do you expect for vampire story they are all corny when it comes down to the HEA, I would listen or read again I think it's just the beginning for these characters and there is so much more to tell..
Awesome work please put the rest of this series in audio as you can't have the teaser at the end of this and not finish..
Worth the $$$
Yes, great narration and good story.
Love Adin - he simply doesn't know how to stay out of trouble.
Donte - he did such a lovely chocolate velvety voice for Donte. You gotta love a guy with that kind of lush voice.
Again, Adin. He is the moving force behind things happening - he just can't help it.
Love this entire series. It was a happy find.
"Good, not Great!"
This was a good m/m vampire story... not great... not even a repeat listen. There was a fair amount of action, but the romance was... well lets just say boring... Even the bad guy turned out to be a decent guys... so eh... IDK... maybe a credit... not a sale or even a buy...
Narration was ok... I have heard better...
This was a DNF for me. I got an hour and a half into it and just couldn't do it anymore. There was a non consensual situation that just pushed me over into the nope territory.
I didn't really care for either of the characters, and add on to that there was too much sex/sexual tension to keep in interested. It just seemed like fairly flat characters who just wanted to have sex, and I couldn't imagine them actually developing a relationship.
I am not a fan of the 'doormat' trope. Adin was just TSTL at times and didn't seem to care that he was being used. He walks right into trouble all of the time and didn't seem to want to be careful even after he discovered that vampires existed. Donte was too creepy to me even for a vampire. Seems like Edward multiplied. The manuscript storyline didn't really make a lot of sense and I'm having a hard time understanding what Santos' role in this series is. I'm a Maxfield fan from way back, but I think that I avoided this book when it was originally published for this very reason. I hope some of the other stories I've read are audio book bound. I would love to listen to the books I actually like.
