Lothaire by Kresley Cole

Title: Lothaire

Series: Immortals after Dark bk 12

Author: Kresley Cole

Genre: Paranormal


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?

In Kresely Cole’s 12th and  latest installment in her Immortals After Dark series, we are finally given the story behind one of the most powerful, mysterious and dangerous beings. Lothaire the Enemy of Old has finally been revealed! No one knew where he came from, what he was up to or who the female was that would be destined for such an evil being.

For anyone who hasn’t read the series all Kresley’s books can be read as stand alone’s. The book focuses more on the couple and their struggles rather than all the other events that are happening in the series. Kresley does a very good job of explaining what is going on for new readers while not being repetitive!

I LOVED IT!!! There has always been so little known about Lothaire. Only knowing that he is feared by all. Males either want to destroy him or run from him, while even the Females who despise vampires, can’t resist his strikingly good looks. The one thing everyone knows he covets is power. So who could have blooded him? Allowing him to finally recognize his fated female?? Enter Elizabeth Pierce. The last person Lothaire could have imagined would be his Bride… a human. A weak, fragile human… the fates are surely laughing at him, but there is another being that is trapped within Elizabeth. With a plot to seize the Horde crown…a human Bride must be a mistake.

Like I said, I loved how the story pulled away from the events happening in the series and focused more on the couple. I can say its one emotional thrill ride. Just when you might start to get mad at Lothaire, you end up loving him more. Elizabeth is an awesome heroine, and the perfect match for Lothaire. Just as an FYI… Lothaire hasn’t bedded a single female in over a millennium. So when he finally finds the Female who brings his body back to life, he takes FULL advantage. There are some hot, Hot, HAWT love scenes that leave you melting!! LOL I can’t wait to see who will Kresley write about next!!!

    I can’t wait to read this one! I loved the other ones in the series and the excerpt I’ve read of Lothaire just made me want to read it more. Elizabeth seems like a very strong heroine, just what Lothaire needs!
    But I’ll have to be patient and wait for it to be less expensive (soon?)!
    Thanks for the review!
