Cherise wanted a quiet, normal life...something she had never had. After a traumatic loss, she decided she needed serenity, so she moved halfway across the world to the American states, to a beautiful, quaint village in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. And there, with fresh air, tall trees, and lovely neighbors, she opened a little patisserie, and settled into a wonderful, normal life. Her family had already told her she couldn't run from her destiny.
Turns out, they were right. The last thing she ever wanted was to see a vampire again. But suddenly, a very damaged one shows up, stripped of his memory, unable to keep human blood down, and in need of help that only someone with her skills could provide. Damn't! She should have known that something would ruin her perfect quiet life of solitude, gardening, and baking her incredible French pastries. No matter how desperately she wanted to send him away, he needed her. The family legacy couldn't be denied... she was born to use her empathic skills to help supernaturals bridge the two worlds. Okay, she would help him and send him on his way quickly so that she could get back to her gentle life. Of course, it figured that this vampire was more than an average vampire...he was one of the first bloods, ancient vampires...powerful, rare, arrogant. Cherise had never been attracted to the large, oversexed vampires. So why did her heart race and breath quicken when he came to her for help? Stick with the plan, she told herself, get him well and out of the village. Only it wasn't going to be that simple when she discovers he's been the target of horrible torture and abuse. It will take all of her skills to help this man become whole and well again. And maybe more of her than she's ever had to give before. Maybe she would discover that even an empath doesn't know what's in her own heart.

"YES YES AND MORE YES!!!!!!"
This was great!
This is total PNR and unique...I loved it...I wasn't sure after book one...but was intrigued...and I am glad I went on to book 2....dragged me right in!
Pyper is a great narrator, her accents are so good...I am quite impressed!
This would be a good movie!!!
The author gave me the first book in this series, after I enjoyed her Charlie Quinn story..Last Best Hope...and now I am moving on to book3...this is a creative world, and the vampires are nothing like you will ever come across...they are very unique...This is Cherise's story after the big fight in book 1 and Cherise is a very interesting lady...I found it quite enjoyable and I highly recommend!
This is my very first find of this wonderful author!! I have listened to this audio with the perfect narrator!! Do not miss this not too sexy but just enough sexy time (not too graphic)novel!
"Really enjoyed these stories"
At first, I was annoyed with the heroine's attitude even though I knew from reading the first book, where she was coming from. However, I got over it as I listened. Loved David, and truly felt for him. I stayed up listening till the early morning hours and hated having to stop in order to get some sleep. Looking forward to the next. Pyper Down does a good job changing from character to character with varying accents.
Endless Days is the second story in The Firsts series by author C.L. Quinn and it's a story you don't want to miss. The first story I learned about Bas and Park and it rocked. This story is about Cherishe, an empath and Kav, the vampire but not just a vampire he's a First. This story is intense, Kav has lost memories and Cherishe is the one that helps him to heal but in a way, throughout the story they kind of help each other. We learn about all the different powers that vampires and empaths have and it kept me engrossed throughout the story. I enjoyed the bonding that Quinn adds to the story along with all the emotional connections. This story has it all, excitement, adventure, and the sex scenes are hot. It's a great story and I highly recommend you give this series a listen.
Pyper Down is absolutely a great narrator. This was when she first started this series and since she's been doing this series she has become the characters, she's gotten that good. She does a perfect job with the accents and the pronunciations that each character needs to have. She makes this story hers in her own little way. She does an outstanding job with this story and especially all the French she has to use.
I ABSOLUTELY LOOOOVE THIS SERIES ALREADY!!!!!! What an AMAZING STORY!! Park is a STRONG MINDED, TAKE NO CRAP kinda woman!! That is until HE comes into her life!! They have to go through hell for each other, but what good relationship doesnt!! WOW, what a ride!! I CAN NOT wait for the next book! The narrator Piper is New to me, but I LOVE HER!! She's fabulous with the accents, they aren't fake! You really feel like your listening to the character!!
"Excellent really lovewish it was longer"
Can hardly wait to read the next . This book grabs you at a fast pace and does not let you go. Great storyteller, I love it
"Another exciting chapter in the FIRSTS sereis!"
OMG yes! Print can't even compare to audio. It's like apples to oranges. Print being the apples and audio being the oranges, oh so juicy & succulent! No comparison! The accents were fantastic. I could never have pronounced all those names or done the accents myself. The narrator did a wonderful job!
I don't like to compare books as if someone didn't like the book I compared it too, then they instantly wouldn't like this & that isn't fair. Each book should be judged on it's own.
I loved all the accents. The French accents, the Irish accents. Piper did a real bang up job! (Excellent job).
It made me smile & blush a lot. Hearing how badly David had been tortured over 30 years time made me want to cry for him! I was thrilled to see this book take off with Cherise! Seeing Park, Bas & Cohen again was nice too. I love to see characters carried over into other books. it's like seeing old friends.
What a great story. Exciting to say the least. Wonderful plot. I look forward to the next book in this series!What a wonderful imagination this author has!!!
"A SUPER SUPERNATURAL SUSPENSE/LOVE STORY"
Another exciting instalment to this great new Vampire series that has pretty much everything a PNR fan wants... a damaged, tortured and oh so sexy Hero, a likeable Heroine, action, twists, surprises, suspense, bitter enemies and a nutty new one, humor, a Goblin, passion, sex and a lovely romance. And you also get to hear multiple points of view from all the many characters involved which brings depth to both the plot and the characters.
There's also great world-building which successfully draws you into each scene and that, together with all the descriptions and good narration, makes this a very captivating listen. The sex scenes are nice and don't have very graphic references.
Worth a credit? Oh YEAH and, IMHO, this is a series that hopefully will grow and grow.... and me, well I'm happily off to listen to book 3.
"did not think that I would like this series,"
but, get ready for "Wow "
can't wait to get the next story in line.
"Cherise meets her Vampire"
I like to have someone read to me. I get to enjoy the story more. It also brings the story to life.
When Cherise figures out she is in love with a VAMPIRE lol
She managed to capture each character fairly well. And she read the story with a clear voice.
I enjoyed this book. It allowed more of Cherish whom we met in Book one
This was the best book I've ever heard. It's a great story about vampires.
All of them as her narration is great.
Again all of them
Yes laugh and feel romantic
