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?


Lothaire is number twelve in Ms. Cole’s Immortals After Dark series. I have been eagerly waiting for this to come out after Dreams of a Dark Warrior came out last year. For those worried about picking up a series with the latest book, please don’t worry. She includes in each book a kind of encyclopedia/dictionary to the world, called the Book of Lore. I loved this book. Lothaire is as much as a butthead as one would expect with a nickname like “The Enemy of Old” and for a mere mortal (as Lothaire sees her), Ellie is feisty as they come. Lothaire keeps trying to knock her down a peg, and she keeps jumping right back at him, ready for more. When I recommended this book to a friend, I told her that he made me want to snuggle him and strangle him at the same time. He is a character I love to hate and then love again. I enjoyed Ellie as well. Feisty heroines always grab me. My only problem with this is having to wait another year for the next book in the series.

Bobbie gives Lothaire  by Kresley Cole 4.5 stars!



Hi everyone!! I am Bobbie B and I am quite honored to be a guest here at RFCM. I met Nikki about a year ago on Facebook and have been a fan of her and this blog ever since. I love her humor, honesty, and support of authors. When I was trying to come up with a book to review for this post, I asked her what book should I pick? She had me send a list of books that I had and she told me definitely Lothaire.

After that, I promptly got sick. Review opportunity of a lifetime (yes, I take each guest post/review that seriously) and absolutely no interest in reading/writing. Head desk moment and not one of my proudest. So to make up for me disappearing, I am going to offer up a surprise or two. An ecopy of Lothaire (or your choice of ebook up to $11.99 if you already own Lothaire) from Amazon, plus two $8 Amazon Gift Certificates which makes for three lucky winners .

Am I forgiven for disappearing?

All you have to do to be entered is answer this question: Do you like arrogant heroes?

Thank you Nikki for having me over!!!


  1. I somewhat like arrogant heroes. They have to somewhat learn to not be so arrogant for me to really fall in love. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I sometimes like arrogant heroes. It really just depends on how they interact with the heroine. It also depends on whether their arrogance is over the top because if it is, I can’t relate to them. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  3. Hey Bobby!
    Yes, I love arrogant heroes. Why? Not only do they occasionally show their flaws, when they think no one is looking but when they find that woman…oh man. Some of the best heroines are the ones who can knock a guy like this down a few pegs and have them begging for more!

  4. Arrogant heroes need a spunky heroine to give them their comeuppance!! I would love to win this book, it sounds great, and I have not read any of Kresley’s books!!

  5. I do like arrogant heroes but they should be paired with a heroine who is complimentary to them and they should balance each other out.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Yes I do! They are so yummy. An arrogant hero & a fiesty heroine make for a great story. Thank you for the giveaway!

  7. I do like arrogant heroes but there has to be more to him than that trait. Plus I want a heroine that can sort of balance him and at the same time give him a taste of his own medicine! Very entertaining pair that would be.

  8. I do like my heroes to be somewhat arrogant. They then do be a above average guys and that is to be expected. I think it takes a passionate personality to carry that kind of attitude so that passion would creep into other areas of their personality too. And who doesn’t like passion??

  9. It depends what they are arrogant about. If they’re trying to save me or give me some great lovin’, then I’m right there with them. If they’re yammering on about how they know everything about everything, then I think I’ll drop kick them into tomorrow.
    Thanks for the giveaway.


  10. Thanks for your review. I’ve heard mixed feedback on this book but I must say it sounds pretty awesome! As for me, I love an arrogant hero…as long as the heroine knocks him down a time or two. 🙂

  11. I love arrogant heroes because I’m hopeful that at some point the heroine will take them down a peg or two.

  12. Yes as long as they have other redeeming qualities. I kind of expect alpha heroes to be a tad arrogant.

  13. Yes, I do like arrogant heroes, particularly if it’s in a teasing, playful manner not in a hurtful one.
    Thank you for the giveaway!


  14. I adore arrogant heroes, lol. They require a strong and feisty heroine, and I love a gal that take an arrogant man and take him down a couple of pegs before he knows what hit him! I adore Barrons from Karen Marie Moning’s Darkfever, and they don’t get much more arrogant than that 😀

    Thank you so much for the giveaway chance!

  15. It depends on how arrogant!! As long as they cool it with the heroine after a get to know you and now we’re perfect together, they can still be an ass with the world, as long as behind closed doors they are sweet as pie for her. Thanks!!

  16. This is the book everyone is talking about and everybody is dieing to read it. To be honest, now I’m dieing to read it 🙂
    I think just about everybody agrees on ‘not too arragont.’ I have found that I like the strong, sure-of-himself type but if he’s a jerk and a bully 4get about it. I don’t like the wimpy men either. Also I don’t like the arragont suit wearing guys who thinks he’s a gift to women because he’s got an office on the top floor and has a few more bucks.

  17. I do like them to be slightly arrogant. I do like to see an arrogrant one knocked on their behind and then fall in love. This is a new author for me and would love to win and read this book. Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. I like a arrogant hero as long as he treats the woman right and show that he can’t live without her. Thanks for giveaway.

  19. I am with the majority of you. Arrogant heroes are okay, but they need a strong, feisty heroine and they need to learn from their mistakes. I don’t think Lothaire will ever stop being an a$$, but now he has Ellie to knock him down a few pegs. He is one of the most arrogant heroes I have read. Those that have read any in this series: What book are you hoping is next? I’m hoping it will be Nix. I adore this world and all of the colorful characters.

    Thank you EVERYONE for coming by and taking the time to comment. I heart Nikki to pieces and I am looking forward to doing more reviews here (and of course there will be a contest every time I come to visit) LOL

  20. Arrogant heroes are fun, because in the end the woman always brings them to heel. So yes I like an arrogant hero as long as he is loveable too.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. I love arrogant heroes because basically that means that they need an awesome woman to keep them in line. Although I think that I prefer heroes that actually should be arrogant, but they don’t realize that they should be (Does that make sense?). Anyway, thanks for the fantastic giveaway!
