This complete boxed set of The Vampire Coalition includes: Ethan's Mate: Ethan Hale is a vampire with a mission. Together with his three brothers and a few other unmated members, he fights with The Vampire Coalition to protect humans from fallen vampires. His life is fairly simple. If he has a problem... he solves it. If it's an evil problem... he kills it. But his uncomplicated life is about to end when his mate unexpectedly calls him to her. Brianna Cole is weak, her life force fading away. She thinks she is suffering from a rare form of leukemia. Little does she know that her illness is much more complicated. She's dying because she has not united with her vampire mate and given him his soul that she has been guarding since birth.
Rory's Mate: Callie Marks never knew that when she had caught the bouquet at her best friend's wedding... she would also meet her destiny in the same place. Rory Hale was the nicest, sweetest man she had ever met. He was also the most unattainable. Gorgeous, rich, and smart, Rory would never be interested in her. He wouldn't go for a plump, boring woman that was a chef and suffered from the rejections of her past. Who wanted a foundling that had never even known who her parents were? Little did she know... he was very interested. Unfortunately, he was also a vampire who was ruled by destiny in the mating department. His mate would not be his choice. Rory Hale had liked Callie Marks since he had met her at his brother's wedding. Although he couldn't feel desire for anyone except his true mate, he and Callie had a connection. They became cautious friends and he wished he could offer her more. Underneath his confident exterior, Rory had his own insecurities, but Callie seemed to think he was special.

I would recommend this book the stories were great and I loved the fact that the whole collection was together so could listen to one after another and have listened to them many times now if you like sexy vampires this is the book for you I have only one word brilliant
I loved all the characters
No I haven't but would if they are as good as this one
I did listen to it in one sitting
I really like the way that Powers read these stories - just like other stories by Scott.
This is for mature readers only.
I really liked these vampires and the premise of having their souls kept inside their soulmates until they finally meet and mate. The relationship between the brothers and their loyalty to each other is well captured and developed. Each of the men get to meet their mates - eventually. Like with most series, the authors seem to keep the best for last and this was no different.
Fabulous books. Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this collection of books as I worked/ sat in my car when I should be doing stuff. Absolutely adored every book!! Thank you Ms Scott for writing and to Elizabeth for narrating so brilliantly. Thank you x
Wow... I really like this. This is 5 stories of vampire brothers and their prince and how the men, who stop have smexy time after 100 years of living, found their mates... Soooo cute!!!
All the stories are good... and full of action and drama and smexy time. I really liked it. I had to take a break halfway through though.... back to back stories of the basic same format was kinda grading on my nerves. But all the stories are the same but different. So I like it.
Good sale book. Maybe a credit it nothing else you want is out... Not really a buy.
Narration was pretty good... No complaints. Powers has strong male character voices.
"A Good Coalition"
This was a hot little short story for my first all vampire story. Ethan Hale is a 500-year-old vampire that has walked the earth alone searching for his soul-bonded mate. He is well past the standard age of finding his mate so lives a life of loneliness that only includes his 3 brothers. Brianna has been "diagnosed" with leukemia which was not true she was dying because she had not mated with her soul mate Ethan and her first physical introduction to him is when she wakes from her dream to find him killing the "fallen" vampire that has been haunting her in her dreams while she has been yearning for Ethan. There is an instant attraction, and an uncontrollable desire to be possessed and owned by Ethan. As Brianna is weak from her diagnosis Ethan strengthens and heals her with his blood before completely possessing her, as vampire possession is meant to be passionate, fierce and uncontrollable. The mating scene was hot. This is my first time reading this author.
Callie met Rory at her best friends wedding Brianna married Rory's brother Ethan. Callie grew up believing that no one wanted her she was abandoned as a child and she is self-conscious about her weight. Rory who has a twin brother has always lived in Liam's shadow because he is a healer the special one he grew up feeling average he is a 400 year old vampire who never thought he would find his mate like the rest of his brother's. Callie and Rory became friends at the wedding he didn't realize that that Callie was his mate until he touched her although he had feelings for her before she was thinking he was attracted to her sexually he had a problem he could know longer be sexual with anyone but his mate, but once he touched her it was all systems go for him and after a sexual encounter Callie ran. Callie was so confused and when she started hearing Rory in her mind she was really confused, but Rory didn't give up or force her he told her about his life after Brianna told him something about Callie's life and when she was in need he was their. I am enjoying this series very much, and this story is no exception. I liked Rory he seems the most emotionally available of his brothers, yes he is the sexy dominant vampire, but he does it with just a touch of vulnerability that made me love him.
I love this series Nathan is the eldest of the vampire brothers he meets Sasha who is a mage and they hate vampires. Sasha was being attacked by three of the fallen vampires when Nathan is out on patrol he gets to her before they killed her after he killed them he takes her to his house as she is laying on his bed he discovers that she is his mate. This is the shortest of the story and it was a quick read. Sasha is not sure she can mate with a vampire her sister who is a healer like his brother Liam also has a secret. Sasha's parents kidnapped and beat her and were about to force her to mate with a Mage before Nathan and his brother found her. They had a quick mating ceremony which was not as hot as the other's.
Regan and Liam are both healer's he is a vampire healer and she is a Mage healer. Regan is Brianna's sister who is mated with Liam's brother Nathan. Brianna and Liam have become really good friends see each other everyday for the last eight months both of them are lonely, but Regan has a secret she knows that she is Liam's mate, but she can never tell him or be mated to him because her council will never allow it as well as her parents them want her to continue the bloodline of the Mage she is also in love with Liam. Liam has lived his whole life being lonely and he has a twin brother Rory he watch each of his brother's meet their mate's and fall in love and it made him feel even lonelier. Liam is also keeping secret's from his family about his live what he goes through working so hard that he forgets to feed he also suffers from backlash pain for killing fallen or anyone else for that matter. After helping his brother kill some fallen vamps he comes to find Regan still there after they had dinner and she knew he was going to be in backlash he was in a lot pain and she didn't know how to help him so she offered to let him feed from her and he knew that she was his mate and that she knew he knew. I like how the author made them friends and yes she Regan had her reason's for not telling him her council threatened to kill Liam so she run's but just as she was leaving her house he finds her and they have sex and he learns the truth. Liam goes into a rage when her Mage mate and tries to force her to show him the goods and Liam goes into a rage one so strong that his three brother's can't hold him back and then comes Daric the vampire prince.
Daric the prince of the vampire healer's thought that he would never find a mate in fact he never wanted one after what his brother's mate did to him. Hannah was having a bad day a bad year her father died of a heart attack while she was recovering from a skiing injury and her boyfriend at the time broke up with her. Hannah was working in the pizza parlor that she inherited from her father on a night when their was a snow storm when she gets a call from one of their best customer's willing to pay 500.00 dollars extra for a large delivery because he hated to feed from people at first Hannah thought it was a joke when she realized that it wasn't she agreed to deliver the food. Daric heard a crash and realized that the person delivering his food crashed and that she was hurt, he knew he needed to help her so he fed from her and he didn't get sick, he realized that she was his mate. This was a good story the end of this series and it was the best one. Hannah was insecure and unsure of herself and Daric felt as though he wasn't worthy of having a mate and he really didn't want one after what his brother went through he also felt that his father didn't love him and Hannah wasn't sure that he loved her until she was in danger and risked his own life for her. What I loved about this book was Daric had given up hope for himself and not others. He believed he was undeserving. Daric found someone who understood exactly how he felt and could relate and therefore being able to move forward on faith in one another. This was a good series.
"If it’s All About Sex…"
In my opinion, the best thing about this series is the narrator, Elizabeth Powers. She has a voice that would do justice to any book. I did not finish the box set.
If it’s all about sex then this is the series for you. This series could have been awesome if a little more attention had been paid to the plot.
In book one, the author give a brief description of the 5 vampire brothers being a part of The Vampire Coalition. Their mission is to protect humans from fallen vampires. Sadly, Ethan’s Mate doesn’t go into any detail about their mission or any adventures they have. It is all about Ethan finding his mate and sexually explicit details about their mating. One chapter alone is 24 minutes of only that. The remainder of the book explicitly leads up to the mating or after the mating. Don’t expect ANYTHING about The Vampire Coalition’s mission or adventures. The adventure that happened in book 1 was a brief moment of finding the fallen who was stalking Ethan’s mate. It was a scant description of that event and not adventurous at all. Not much of a plot.
In book 2, Rory’s Mate, again a brief run in with 3 fallen group attacking Rory. Not much on details...Just get me to my mate. Mostly, it’s graphic sex and scant plot.
I’m not sure if I can listen to the remainder of the books because of the weak plot. You almost get an impression of the brothers’ personality and yet that falls short too. There was so much opportunity for a great series – it just wasn’t fleshed out for the readers/listeners. I’ve listened to Erotic Romance novels that DO have plots. I just don’t have much interest in those that don’t. My fault, I should have researched better. However, how do you know which Paranormal Romances have substantial plots and which don’t?
If you are interested, the box set titles are:
1. Ethan’s Mate
2. Rory’s Mate
3. Nathan's Mate
4. Liam's Mate
5. Daric's Mate
I did not get past book 2 & actually didn't finish it because it was going down the same path as the first book. No substance.
"Great Collection of J. S. Scott's writings"
I enjoy listening to books written by J. S. Scott. She does a great job. I had first read some of her Billionaire books and thought I would try something different. This Vampire collection was great. A different twist on a similar theme. Of the different stories, there were some I preferred over the others. I liked the way she connected the people from one book to the next. Great story and the narrator did a good job of separating each of the characters. I will continue listening to Ms. Scott's work. Always enjoy her writing.
"No story lines just sex"
I had to stop in the middle of the 3rd book. I just could not listen anymore. I kept finding myself saying really???? If you like reading books with almost the same thing of a story line and a lot of sex. This series is for you. unfortunately it was not for me.
I really enjoyed this books set. All the stories were intriguing and stirring. I love it when big rough in lethal vampires go all stupid over their beautiful little mates. Never underestimate the power of a woman's love. I especially love the way they like it. I highly recommend this set.
Easy listening. Love the reader. The author writes very creativity about her characters. Good romance.
"gets better closer to the last 3books"
I like the last 3 books, better than the 1st 2 a lot more of a story line, I really liked the last 2 books
"No story unbelievable characters"
Got about an hour into this and gave up. There is no real story to speak of and the characters and their actions are unbelievable.
This series was awesome to listen to and I highly recommend it. J.S. Scott and Elizabeth Powers did amazing work
