I listened to the audio book during my road trip to Texas. This review will be shorter than the others, as I will not have any saved text to share with you.
Dark Gold is the Carpathian story of Aidan and Alexandria. This book si wonderfully amazing and I really enjoyed listening to Juanita Clark read it to me.
Aidan, a vampire hunter that has existed alone for many centuries. Sent to America to help protect the humans from the vampire predators, Aidan has known very few. Alienated from his people, he only exists with honor. Only exists to rid the world of his fallen brethren.
Alexandria is a talented graphics artist who is trying to land a job as the new designer for a totally rockin awesome vampire game being released. Her parents died, and she has been left alone to care, to provide and raise her six-year-old brother. Living in hell holes, scrounging for money and food to keep them moving forward, she loves Joshua dearly and will do anything to keep him safe and give him what she hopes will be a bright future.
Kidnapped by a vampire who claims her as his mate, she and Joshua suffer through caves flooded by tides, violence and terror from the vampire, and attempted double suicide to avoid the terrible existence of what she knew would come.
Rescued by Aidan, whom believes her a deranged vampiress, Aidan and Alexandria begin the relationship progression that all Carpathians must endure. He wants her. He is tormented by his inner demons. She defies him and refuses to accept that she is no longer human. Yadda yadda …
The vampires want nothing more than to claim Alexandria, to use her psychic abilities in hopes to bring emotion and color back into their lives.
This take is beautiful and I definitely recommend this to all mature adults in need of brilliant entertainment. Moderate to extremely descriptive violence (woo hoo) and extreme sexual content. This book focusses more on the fear of attacks and the struggles within their relationship. Although the sexual content finally comes forth, there is very little.
I do not advise immature adults to read this book. This warning is to those whom refuse to acknowledge that their children are NOT young adults. They are children. Know better.
