Summary

Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love....

After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends - those poor romantic fools - plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.

Until Marielle....

She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these... feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning - for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?

Lacklustre and boring

Written more for a youth market than adult. I found it irritating and in the end I gave up!

It's about time Connor got some!!!

Connor has been around since the first book in this series - watching all of his friends and colleagues fall in love, so it was definitely his turn. This story was a step away from the usual vampire/human/shifter love story but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

more teen than mean!

Fine for the teenage vamp/shifter fans out there. Nice story but lacking that substance from other better known authors of the genre

Cute

Hmm Grouchy Scottish vampire and a virgin sort-of fallen angel.. It sounds really really corny but it works. Some laugh-outloud moments as well as touching scenes, the kind Kerrelyn-sensei seems to be good at doing. I have read the series on and off and I seem to have missed reading several books The 2 books I've recently read were fun enough that I will go back and pick up those books.

More of a romance novel

I found this to be a decent paranormal romance novel. Just be forewarned its about 75% romance, 5% action, and 20% related to the paranormal setting and characters. There is room for sequels if the author decides to do so.

Love The whole series

I enjoyed this book very much. Actually it brought tears to my eyes several times. I love how the books intertwined and give you information about Romans childhood.

Innocence is not completely lost

What did you love best about Vampire Mine?

What I loved about this book is the innocence's of the Angel and how she had to learn about being a human from those around her. It was funny to hear how everyone was trying to impress her and put their best foot forward, while the Angel didn't judge anyone and thought everyone was wonderful for who they are.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Vampire Mine?

When Marielle got into the closet with Conner, and the conversation that took place there.

What about Gabra Zackman’s performance did you like?

I think she did a good job at being the narrator for this book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, however real life takes away from audio book time :(

Any additional comments?

I love this series and how each book is about one of the main characters explaining more about them and their past.

Good Story Not so grate Reader

Would you listen to Vampire Mine again? Why?

Liked the story even though the reader was... Lest put it this was she made Kerrelyn Sparkes kind of bland.

Terrible and boring narration!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Wrong narrator for this type of story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gabra Zackman’s performances?

I have heard her many times, but this was the totally wrong book for her.

Any additional comments?

The narration made it impossible for me to finish listening. I love this series, but skip this one!
