Book Description
The stranger silently summoned her from across the continents, across the seas. He whispered of eternal torment, of endless hunger, of dark, dangerous desires. Somehow, American surgeon, Shea O'Halloran could feel his anguish, sense his haunting aloneness, and she ached to heal him, to heal herself. Drawn to the Carpathian mountains, Shea found a ravaged, raging man, a being like no other, and she trembled. In his burning eyes, his icy heart, she recognized the beloved stranger who'd already become a part of her. This Carpathian made had compelled Shea to his side. But was she to be his healer...or his prey? His victim...or his mate? Was he luring her into madness...or would his dark desire make her whole? Read by Juanita Parker. 12 CD's 12.5 Hrs.

    E' il secondo libro sui carpaziani, ed è sicuramente più bello del primo, sono uomini molto belli,oscuri, che viaggiano sempre sull'orlo dell'abisso, la possibilità cioè di diventare vampiri, ma sono le donne che hanno una marcia in più, e che finalmente si fanno delle domande sul loro futuro, legato indissolubilmente a quello del compagno Carpaziano, e che hanno dei dubbi nonostante la natura magnetica e l'aspetto bellissimo dei loro compagni.

    Less rethorical than the first book of the Carpathians, "Dark Desire" is just a bit more intriguing to read. Anyway, I really do not like Feehan's style and plots, boring, predictable, full of tediously recurring situations, soppy speeches, ludicrous and unlikely sex. So long and thanks for all the fish. Goodbye to the Carpathians.

    Much better than the first "Dark Prince"

    I would've given Dark Prince 3 1/2 stars if there was half stars. This I would've give 4 1/2 because it was really good. I liked the main characters a lot whereas with the Dark Prince, I like the ...continue

    I would've given Dark Prince 3 1/2 stars if there was half stars. This I would've give 4 1/2 because it was really good. I liked the main characters a lot whereas with the Dark Prince, I like the secondary characters and the story of the Carpathians vs Vampires.

    This one has a human woman dealing with being half human/ half something she doesn't know but has a little introduction from her mother's journal. She thinks she has a blood disease with need of regular transfusions. She has become a renowned surgeon while studying her "disease" and is trying to cure it.

    She gets a mental link, that she thinks is a dream, not reality. When some crazy Vampire hunters start hunting her, she runs to her father's homeland and the mental link becomes very strong.

    The man is the mental link and has been tortured and buried alive. He is half mad and doesn't know who he is calling to and bringing to him. He thinks it may be a betrayer. He can remember nothing of the past, just pain.

    That is the beginning and premise. It is a Carpathian novel of lifemates find one another. I don't really think you need the first book to understand what is going on. It gets explained well enough but you will miss who the people are later in the novel. It is not necessary, but it'll make you want to read the first book which is not as good.

    我也覺得比想像中好看, 甚至比"黑暗王子"這本書更好看.. 雖然女主角被男主角的痛苦與絕望折磨地有些小悽慘, 但是她的悲天憫人的情懷, 遇事堅強不退縮的勇氣與推理智慧都令人折服.. 看著男主角因為遭遇虐殺被折磨不成人形, 內心喫血仇恨的獸性幾乎要淹蓋人的理智時, 女主角如何撫慰他受傷的心靈與癒療創傷, 彼此之間的情感交流.. 為倆人的愛情增添說服力與可看性!!
    配角-高睿非常搶眼, 十分令人嚮往他的故事, 活了千年內心也更孤寂落寞.. 希望他的生命伴侶也是美麗與智慧兼俱.

    感覺比黑暗王子好看一點,不過我覺得女主角有M的傾向,一見面男主角就像殭屍一樣吸了她的血,還能鎮靜的救他,劇情就像書名一點,蠻黑暗的,不太能接受命定中的對象這種設定,只能給三葉了,實在不是我的菜,還好我只有租來看,果然有先見之明!!!

    補充一下...
    男主角可以知道女主角在想什麼,還可以努力影響女主角要幹麼,難怪是生命的伴侶!!

    這本書跟之前的RA074黑暗王子是有相關聯的,但不會造成前後閱讀的困擾。

    印象中,黑暗王子不是很好閱讀,我好像沒看完,這本在閱讀上倒是出乎意料的順暢,讓我想再試試黑暗王子。

    可能因為上一本Dark ...continue

    可能因為上一本Dark Prince要介紹太多卡帕西族了,劇情節奏較慢--做成我適應不良,雖然在故事結尾時,我興趣大增--有很想看下一本的感覺,而這本Dark Desire叫我一點也不失望,倒失足的跌入了卡帕西的旋渦裏。

    Dark Desire的男主角是Dark Prince的弟弟,過了七年非人生活後失去常性及記憶,完完全全在轉化的邊緣。
    故事一開始,飽受凌虐的傑克被在囚在棺木中,在饑渴及痛苦中爭扎活下,還是感受到生命伴侶見死不救的痛苦,在苦等七年後,對卡帕西族一無所知的詩雅終於出現,亦同時承受了傑克失去理智的攻擊,她將傑克由轉化的危機中救出來,不過失去理智及記憶的傑克同時也將她轉化過來。
    我挺佩服詩雅的勇氣,身為醫生的她以救人為己任,所以在承受傑克攻擊時,她在受傷的同時竟能理解傑克的敢擊行為,更能用語言化解危機,對於這種智勇雙全的女主角,我真的完全沒有抵抗力。
    二人在大半本書,機乎是一個躺著一個忙著救人,但仍精彩萬分,連躺著都魅力十足的男主角,不過十分令人懼畏就是了。不過不要因為故事集中在二人身上而覺得劇薄弱,就故事的緊湊性,這本毫不輸蝕。
    先人獵魔狂的人類追殺,還要面對男主角面臨失控的邊緣,再來還有背叛者--真正的吸血鬼,真正的內外夾攻,不要忘記還有男女主角們的張力,令人完完全全見識到卡西帕人的魅力!!!
