Summary

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

Any additional comments?

4.5 stars

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 $$$

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...

Disapointing

I literally couldn't get past the prologue, the story seems so interesting but I may just have to wait for the summer to read it rather than listen to the audiobook because this narrator is PAINFUL to listen to. His voice outside of the dialogue is so monotone and dull I feel like I'm listening to Google translate read this. so so disappointing...

Awesome book!

I really loved this story. Donte and Aydin. Aydin's sarcasm and quick wit while maybe not so healthy was good. Donte not sure about him but marking him. Noturo put back in his hands was a good thing.

Starts with a male on male rape ...

Your definition of rape may be different than mine, but compliance to sex under vampiric thrall is non-consensual sex -- it's drugged sex. Since that's the way the first book in the series started, I'm passing on all of them.

Good start to a series.

I really liked this book, but I have to admit something. It took me a little while to listen to this series because I thought he narrator was mispronouncing the uniquely spelled names of the main characters but as it turned out the author did intend them to be pronounced that way. I bring this up because it did hold me back from listening to these books for quite some time. I honestly don't like the weird pronunciations, it didn't feel right in the beginning and even after listening to all three books I didn't change my opinion. Still that is just a characters name and had nothing to do with the story telling itself.

It is an interesting story and I like Adin and his work collecting erotic works of writing from history. He has a good support team of friends and his sister. Donte is interesting. I didn't fall in love with him right away. He is mysterious but also ruthless and the romance wasn't as stable as I would have liked. A good beginning to the series, though, and I was interested in more.

The narration was enjoyable, and I would listen to him again.

Fun Read

This was a very fun read. The characters are well developed and show depth. The story is well written and keeps you engaged. It is a lighthearted gay vampire romance well worth the time and effort to read!
