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.

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. Based on the drooling anticipation of so many SBTB readers before its release, I read Lothaire when it first came out.

Rereading it now, after devouring the rest of the series, I enjoyed it just as much, though not in quite the same way. Thus, knowing the back story is lagniappe, not necessity. Elly and Lothaire are my favorites couple among the Loreans, despite an off-putting power imbalance.

A triangle consisting of a multi-millennia-old vamp, a psychotic former vampire goddess, and an iron-willed twenty-something country girl forced to share her body with with said goddess creates quite an interesting dynamic.

Aside from being a stone killer, the only trait she has in common with Lothaire is sneakiness, boding ill for a long term relationship. Fortunately our heroine, Elly is pretty sly as well, only on her, it looks good.

There are so many ways in which the characters of Lothaire and Elly complement each other. Of course there is a slight age disparity to overcome, as well as the prejudice natural between an uber-powerful legendary monster and a young squirt inching into her third decade who is not only a lowly mortal and ex-con Thanks, Soraya! Cole opens the novel with a prologue set in Lothaire's childhood and uses it to show that her hero has both mommy and daddy issues as well as some deeply buried problems with self-esteem.

Then, when he's a grown vamp of something, he meets Elly a newly-minted psych graduate who proceeds to analyze the crap out of him. This strikes me as absolutely hysterical. It also makes the prologue-set-in-the-tragic-past device, which I normally despise, palatable.

The exchanges between Lothaire, who expresses himself like a dirty-mouthed four year old at times and a 16 year old mean girl at others, and Elly, who in spite of her terror is always calculating the best way to achieve her goals, are a grin fest for the reader. Peripheral characters are also a source of delight. Whether in snarky conversation or ironical circumstance, Cole is a mistress of humor that doesn't make the reader groan in embarrassment for her characters.

Humiliation is rarely undeserved and never insurmountable. At one point, Elly, after a heavy make out scene with Lothaire, feels Soraya rising. Rather than being upset, Elly is smug because virginal Soraya taking over Elly's messy, well-serviced body is a fair return for all the times Elly rose to consciousness covered in blood.

Soraya is, in fact, thoroughly grossed out. I was all: Go Elly! You give new meaning to the term spunky heroine! The Lore is based on a believable substructure of rules and conditions and isn't unduly plagued by contradictions and unanswered questions. The role of mortals in this world is a little problematical, as the relationship between the Lore and the mundane world is never satisfactorily explained.

One wonders how the humongous quantities of sex and violence produced by Loreans never seems to impinge on mortal existence. Much as I enjoyed Lothaire , a few caveats contributed to that minus sign after the A. I mentioned my dislike of pity party prologues and my discomfort with the ill-defined role of the mortal world. However, my strongest reservation has to do with that power imbalance between Lothaire and Elly.

While Elly's personal strength and courage allowed me to forget or discount that imbalance most of the time, there were moments when Lothaire's bullying came close to breaking her, and I could not ignore how powerless she really was. I hate rape scenes, especially disguised as love-making, but I think that ambiguity about sexual attraction can make characters more complex and interesting.

That said, I suspect that, for some readers, this would be a deal breaker. Another possible deal-breaker is Cole's frequent use of extremely rough language.

Her Immortals swear. A lot. Don't fucking care. There are no flowery euphemisms here, thanks. Nipples get sucked or bitten vamps, remember? Nor does Cole use medical terminology. Neither lady parts nor vaginas, members nor penises, though she does avoid some of the cruder terms for the latter. There is also a heavy-duty obsession with body fluids. Sex scenes are detailed, frequent, and undeniably hot, but calling them earthy would be throwing roses at 'em.

I would recommend Lothaire to any reader who enjoys mismatches made in heaven, edged dialogue, immortal angst and multi-leveled hilarity. Great review. I think what I liked most about Lothaire is he starts out selfish, violent, and insane and pretty much stays that way throughout the whole book. And I love him all the same. Nice review! I totally agree about the language in the book, it got a bit much after a while. Nix is one of my all time favs. I had the audiobook a while back and I usually love these books but I returned this DNF Elie and family were one redneck stereotype after another.

I enjoyed reading book so I picked up the audiobook to entertain me on a long car ride. My family is from Appalachia, and I have never heard anyone with such an exaggerated accent. The accent the narrator chose made the characters sound even more stereotypical than they were. So thanks! Although the rapey bit does make me a tiny bit nervous.

Although having just one character who did that would be hilarious. I absolutely loved this book. Kresley Cole is my favorite paranormal author. Really in-depth review! The …. I heard that before I read it and was unable to keep a straight face throughout the book.
