Lothaire- Kresley Cole (book 12)

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?

OK I will start this review with a few personal things- 1.  I LOVED this book. 2. I do not like the cover and before everyone starts throwing eggs at me, let me explain. This cover model, Paul M. is so freaking HOT- the kind of "OMG my panties are wet just looking at pictures of him", smoking HOT!! But this pic does not do it for me but he does have the complete feel of Lothaire that KC wrote about- makes me wonder if she had this yummy man in mind while she wrote it.
We met Lothaire many books back and he has always been just so evil and funny that you kinda have to love him, he's extremely arrogant and self-righteous (reminds me of Jericho Barrons but at times made JB look & sound like a cuddle little puppy dog). It was an awesome read to have him knocked down a few pegs by a mere mortal hillbilly woman. Lothaire uses his Oracle to find his Bride but when he finds out she is a human he is not pleased and she is young. He spies on her for years watching her grow into a woman, while on one of his many trips to watch her his heart starts beating again but he soon learns that she is possessed by a Goddess, a very evil goddess that enjoys killing. He thinks that Ellie is not his bride that the goddess is. Ellie goes to jail for five years and while she is set to be executed he pops in and traces away with her. The banter between the two of them is great. He agrees to protect her body but to get rid of her soul so his Bride can take over. When surfaced his Bride makes excuses why she will not have sex with him and she tells him to use Ellie. He and Ellie do sexually things but not intercourse because he is afraid with his strength he will hurt her. The sex scenes are great, I cracked up when he was "teaching" her how to give head (as he calls it). The fight in both of their hearts to keep from falling in love with each other is great and the moment he realizes what she means to him was so well written. He can't bring himself to fall in love with a human, he has hated humans his entire life and to think that Fate has matched him for life with a human is too much for him to wrap his head around. Ellie on the other hand tries so hard not to fall in love with the man that has never once treated her like a woman, with respect and is always threatening her and her family.
Nix.. Nucking Futs Nix is fantastic in this book. LOL I love it how she walks around with a bat on her shoulder. Lothaire thinks that she has betrayed him his whole life and she did a few times but for his own good. I hope her book is next. This book we also met 5 of Lothaire's cousins- ummm yummy I hope they all get books too!!
My Rating: 5    Wendy
Here's a  few pics of Paul- like I said smoking HOTTTTT!!!!
