A New Series!!!

Dark Prince (Dark #1) by Christine Feehan  

From the Publisher...

Prince of the Night. 

He came to her in the night, a predator -- strength and power chiseled his features. The seduction was deep and elemental; he affected her soul. His need. His darkness. His terrible haunting loneliness. Her senses aroused, she craved the dangerous force of his body. Burned for him. And he had only touched her with his mind.

Lady of the Light

She came to him at dawn, his bleakest hour. As the beast raged inside him, threatening to consume him, he vented his centuries-old despair in an anguished cry that filled the waning night. And she answered, a ray of light, piercing his darkness. A beautiful angel. Her compassion, courage, and innocence awakened in him an exquisite longing and tenderness. He knew he must possess her, for only she could tame his savage side and lift the dark shadow from his soul. Apart they were desolate, bereft. Intertwined physically and spiritually, they could heal one another and experience an eternity of nights filled with love.

Enter the enchanting world of the Carpathians, where dark adventure, mystery, and love await, and the desires of two daring hearts unite in one irresistible passion.

A telepathic hunter of serial killers, Raven Whitney helps catch some of the most depraved criminals. But her work keeps her from getting close to others, and has drained her body and spirit. In need of rest and rejuvenation, she embarks on a vacation far from home.
Mikhail Dubrinksy is the Prince of the Carpathians, the powerful leader of a wise and secret ancient race that thrives in the night. Engulfed by despair, fearful of never finding the mate who can save him from the encroaching darkness, his soul cries out in loneliness. Until the day a beautiful voice full of light and love responds, softly soothing his pain and yearning.

From the moment they meet, Raven and Dubrinksy are helpless to resist the desire that sparks between them. But just as fate unexpectedly brings these life mates together, malevolent forces threaten to destroy them and their fragile love. Yet even if they survive, how can these two lovers – Carpathian and human – build a future together? And how can Dubrinksy bring Raven into his dark world without extinguishing her beautiful goodness and light?

From Me...
I don't know why I liked this book so much. I listened to the audiobook, whose narrator was good enough, but not stellar. However, I liked this book enough that I have already downloaded the second and third books in the series.

Part of it has to be the Prince of the Night. Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky, who is extremely sexy, dominates most of the book. I have to acknowledge, though, that he has more than a few misogynistic tendencies. Then again, what can you expect when dealing with a centuries old vampire-type person (vampire-type refers to the species of Carpathians which are not vampires, but do drink blood).

I think what I loved most was the mind connection between the Mikhail and Raven Whitney, the female protagonist.   They talk to one another with their minds only.  It's a very interesting plot line, especially during the romantic or dangerous scenes.

I did wish that Raven had more common sense, but c'est la vie.  Unless you write the book yourself, more than likely, you would change something.  As it is, I have read the first one and can't wait to read the second.  I seriously hope you will consider the books for your to-be-read pile.
