Seductive and lethal, vampire Léopold Devereoux returns to the Big Easy to find a killer. His search leads him to a beautiful and mysterious woman who awakens desires and emotions that he's long fought to keep buried. After centuries of self-imposed solitude, the billionaire philanthropist struggles to restrain his growing thirst for the intriguing, lovely female who's captured his attention.
Laryssa Theriot, an antiques proprietor in the Vieux Carré, agrees to help the commanding - yet debonair - stranger who seeks her assistance. She withholds her secret abilities, afraid to trust the man who threatens to unleash her darkest fantasies. All the while, Léopold consumes her thoughts, testing her erotic limits and bringing her to new levels of ecstasy. As the menacing force that has stalked Laryssa for years finally catches up to her, she submits, putting her life into the hands of the dominant vampire who offers his protection.
They embark on a perilous adventure deep in the heart of New Orleans, forced to search for an ancient sacrificial relic that they hope will save their lives. As they face formidable challenges, Léopold and Laryssa surrender to the passionate intimacy that possesses them. After hundreds of years of denying himself love, will Léopold bond to the woman who has begun to crack the impenetrable shell around his heart? As evil draws near, will Laryssa survive the demon that has come to take her soul?

Great story and very hot! A seriously fun read.. I could not take too many breaks as wanted to know what happened next.
This is not a story for those offended by well described sexual scenes. Yet for those that are open and love a great paranormal romance, this is right up there with the best!
"THE CHARACTERS CAME ALIVE WITH RYAN'S VOICE.. SIGH"
This is a fantastic series if you're a paranormal romance lover..... Vampires, Were-shifters, Witches, Demons and now, in this entertaining story, yet another 'species' has been conjured up by the very talented Kym Grosso in her new, very imaginative, hot, romantic, funny and exciting plot. The sexy, charismatic and hunky French Master Vampire Leopold, who has turned his back on close friendships for 1000 years, has finally met a woman that can tear down his barriers, isn't afraid of his Alpha 'me a cold and scary Vamp' ways and is a perfect match for his sensual desires (and boy does he have some... Ooo la la!). But Laryssa comes with baggage of her own.... in the form of an evil Demon Stalker wanting to sexually claim her together with her missing magical sacrificial dagger that will allow him to open up the portals of Hell and, if that's not bad enough, he wants her soul too.
An addictive action packed ride that has a humorous feisty but confused and vulnerable Heroine, a French Vampire Hero who oozes charm, looks and sex appeal also the plot includes characters from previous books who all get involved in the storyline so multiple POV's (but mainly from the H/H's). However, the main star, who made this an awesome listen, is Ryan West as his narration was just perfect.... no matter what personality, nationality or gender he did, he did them all so well and what a gift it is to have a narrator such as Ryan. He made a good book into a great listen and gave all the cast of paranormals larger than life likeable (and dislikable) characters with their ego's, faults, strengths, vulnerabilities, sexy and humorous sides so visualising them, and each scene, was a joy.
Worth a credit? Yes, absolutely but this is a very sexy listen and not for the unsuspecting listener who shies away from the explicit and downright flirty and dirty sex scenes.... You've been warned.
"Hot, Sexy, and Wicked!"
Wow! Book five in the Immortals of New Orleans was Awesome! I loved PNR's, and this serious has a great mix of action, suspense, steamy sex scene and humor! Grosso has done an excellent job developing the plot and characters, as well as the world building which is very captivating. While each story could be listened as a stand alone, each book adds more depth to the word and characters, and builds on each other.
Throughout the series, I've liked Leopold and enjoyed his story. His character is sophisticated, sexy, lethal, but also has a vulnerable and caring side which we get to see as his and Laryssa's relationship blossom. A very powerful vampire indeed.
West's performance is amazing! I really enjoy how he portrays the characters, especially the dominate/alpha males.
Awesome series, and narration that's totally worth a credit!
"Great Author and Fabulous Reader"
Loved the book as I have all her books. Ryan is the best reader. Love him
Storyline was great however, Larissa's character very whiney and at most times irritating. Loved Leopold very strong, masculine with a little bit of cocky.
Thrilling and mesmerizing, this is a can't put down book. The characters just draw you in and won't let go. Narrator Ryan West as usual does a superb job of transporting you right into the story world, making it real. The epilogue always leads you right into the next book. I very highly recommend this book and the entire must read series.
"Fast paced, action packed and full of heat"
First I have to say that I LOVED this narrator. Also, I did come into this series late so, this was my first one. That, however, didn't take away from the story at all.
Lots of action and lots of heat kept the pages turning. The storyline is good and I loved the characters. I will definitely be checking out other books in this series.
This was my first audio book and now I have a new addiction!
Hot hot hot! What an amazing story that still let my imagination fly. I can't wait for my next audio book from Kym and Ryan!
"Naughty naughty Leopold!"
Just three?! I would say adventurous, naughty and passionate!
I loved the characters and their personalities. Kym Grosso did a great job in developing the characters and giving them each their own voice. I liked the friendship between Leopold and Dimitri. The banter back and forth made me laugh.
Leopold of course! Ryan West does a great job in getting into character with Leopold. His voice is consistent, steady and clear the whole time.
Yes! The combination of Kym's story and Ryan's performance made this book really enjoyable.
Kym Grosso is a gifted author. Her Immortals of New Orleans series is outstanding! The characters are likable, witty and full of passion. Leopold's Wicked Embrace has it all. An alpha male, a passionate female who can take care of herself, and some naughty scenes! I recommend the whole series! You will not be disappointed!

I have all the books in this series and was awaiting for Leopolds book to come out. I liked the way he courted Larissa, Patient and very decisive that he wanted her in his life.
Ryan West is one of My favourite narrators. The way he brings out all the emotions of the characters, the way his voice changes on all the characters. I think he is very Brilliant and talented.
The book made me laugh sometimes and it was fast paced which i like in My books.
