Alyn’s Review – LOTHAIRE (IAD # 12) by Kresley Cole

 Visit Kresley’s web-site 


Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness—until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.


Growing up in desperate poverty, Ellie Peirce yearned for a better life, never imagining she’d be convicted of murder—or that an evil immortal would abduct her from death row. But Lothaire is no savior, as he himself plans to sacrifice Ellie in one month’s time. And yet the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with wealth and sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, Ellie surrenders her body to the wicked vampire, while vowing to protect her heart.


Elizabeth tempts Lothaire beyond reason, as only his fated mate could. As the month draws to a close, he must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will Lothaire succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?

Alyn’s Review:
YUM! That pretty much sums up my opinion about this villain of a vampire. Kresley Cole’s latest in the Immortals After Dark series is a page turner that had me squirming beneath the sheets. Be prepared for tears, anger and of course some seriously steamy scenes that will have you begging to be bitten.

Lothaire has been painted as the ultimate villain and is known as the Enemy of Old because he doesn’t discriminate; he hates everyone, especially humans. This beautifully erotic story explains where the blonde vampire king’s hatred comes from and why he is so determined to rule the world of the immortals. There is simply one problem; a female named Ellie who is on death row for the gruesome murders committed by her hand. Ellie holds the key to closing the door to a blood vendetta that has lasted for centuries. The dilemma for Lothaire? Ellie is human which is simply unacceptable but he cannot succeed in finding the true bride that blooded him without her help, even if it kills her. Ellie must figure out a way to seduce this gorgeous vampire with eyes like ice so that she can live, or lose herself completely.

The word that sums this one up for me is PASSION! So much of it in this book. Passion for Lothaire and understanding for this misunderstood vampire. You will laugh at his banter with his favorite witch and of course Miss Nyx the Everknowing who brings new light into their past. The steamier scenes are bloody and beautiful (I know that sounds funny but it is true) and Lothaire’s commitment to his true bride as well as his dedication to a promise made as a child is heart wrenching. 5 stars and an absolute must read for any Immortals After Dark fan or paranormal romance fans alike.
