Présentation de l'éditeur

Seven years ago, Dr Shea O'Halloran experienced an unexpected and horrendous pain unlike anything she had ever known. It felt as if she were being tortured. Eventually the pain disappeared, but Shea never forgot. She has since devoted her life to trying to understand the cause of the rare genetic blood disorder that is slowly killing her. The answers to some of Shea's questions start to reveal themselves when she is approached by two men, who accuse her of being a vampire. Shea runs for her life and - following a feeling she can't explain - her desperate wanderings lead her to Romania. The ancient one known as Jacques Dubrinsky can explain. Seven years ago, Jacques was captured, tortured and buried alive by several humans and a Carpathian betrayer. The years of extreme pain and lack of sustenance that followed have nearly driven Jacques insane. He has been using what is left of his powers to psychically draw Shea to the region. But is Shea to be his healer or his prey?

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Quand l'amour est la seule défense contre la folie... 12 novembre 2003
Par Dassya VOIX VINE
Format:Poche
Fini. Z'aime. Beaucoup. Beaucoup.
Décidément, j'adore quand le héros est un brin complètement dingue ou qu'il est un rien psychopathe. L'héroïne est forte et cartésienne malgré l'univers fantastique que crée Feehan. Mais celui qui bondit littéralement hors des pages, c'est Jacques. Intense. Désespéré. Animal. C'est un héros vibrant qui m'a prise aux tripes et m'a déchirée le cœur. Bref, j'ai été mordue.
Certes, Feehan a encore des invraisemblances et certaines situations me laissent perplexe, tout comme la fin m'a semblé expédiée. Mais ce 2ème volet de sa série Dark avec les Carpathians est encore meilleure que le 1er.
Il me reste encore un volume à lire avant de pouvoir lire "Dark Magic", dont Gregori est le héros. Que j'ai hâte!

Bon, il va falloir que je revois mes positions en ce qui concerne cette série.

J'avais moyennement aimé le premier volume car le style de l'auteur était trop lourd et étouffant. J'ai moins eu cette impression dans ce deuxième volume.

L'histoire était vraiment intéressante et l'auteur a beaucoup développé les informations sur ses vampires des Carpathes. Le personnage de Jacques, à la limite de la folie après avoir été torturé et emmuré vif pendant 7 ans, était vraiment très prenant.

Par contre, l'auteur passe beaucoup de temps à répéter que ces vampires ne pensent et ne réagissent pas de la même façon que les humains. Or, j'ai eu l'impression de mieux comprendre le personnage de Jacques que celui de Shea, celle qui lui est destiné. J'avoue qu'elle a fait et dit pas mal de choses qui m'ont semblé illogiques dans les quelques premiers chapitres. Mais c'était sans doute pour faire avancer l'intrigue...

L'un dans l'autre, je vais me diriger doucement vers le troisième volume de la série. Histoire de voir...

: ) j'ai aussi beaucoup aimé.

Malgré sa folie, jacques sait se montrer tendre quand même !! Son personnage est réussi, sa détresse est bien retranscrite, et pour ma part il m'a fait pitié T_T . j'aime l'attachement qu'il porte à Shea, et du côté de la trame, elle est très bien menée, ce qui nous fait passer un bon moment tout au long du livre ( moi en tout cas je n'ai pas deviné qui était le traitre avant d'arriver à la fin).

Bref je le recommande grandement !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful! A must read! 9 décembre 1999
Par Jankben - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Fighting to survive unendurable torment, Jacques Dubrinsky's shattered mind manages to establish a connection with a stranger. A woman who might be able to save him, or who may be the cause of his agony. American surgeon Shea O'Halloran feels compelled to travel the thousands of miles to the Carpathian mountains, where she discovers a being like none she has ever known. In her desperate race to save Jacques, Shea must face the truth about what he is and about herself. Christine Feehan has given us another can't- put- it -down page turner with Dark Desire, the second book in her series about a race of people who face extinction and are hunted as vampires. I was pulled deep into the emotional impact of Jacques' destructive madness from page one. The relationship between Jacques and Shea reminded me of the Beauty and the Beast story. He desperately needs her but at the same time is dangerous to her, and she is drawn to him in spite of the fact that she knows it may lead to her destruction. Not for the faint of heart, this book does contain some graphic violence and some pretty hot romance. A very well written, entertaining story that I highly recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific 2nd Novel In The Carpathian Series - A Must Read! 30 août 2004
Par Jana L. Perskie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
"Dark Desire" is the second book in Christine Feehan's Carpathian series. This novel stands alone and it is not necessary to read the first book to appreciate this one - although I think you will enjoy it more if you do. Carpathians are a unique race of beings, originating in Romania's Carpathian Mountains, who have existed since humans first inhabited the earth. They are definitely not vampires. They are, however, a different race than man, gifted with the ability to change shape, fly, and move faster than the eye can see - and also able to communicate through both telepathy and language. Acquiring sustenance from human and/or animal blood, they do not kill or turn people into vampires. Carpathians mate for life but since the females rarely live to adulthood, and their childrens' mortality rate is high, not many males are able to find a female suitable for a lifemate....or any female at all. The women provide the light to the males' darker side. After 200 years, the Carpathian male loses all human feelings, unless he has a mate. The race is dying out and many males, having lived for centuries without wives, often choose to end their existence or turn rogue, (vampire), in despair.

Jacques Dubrinsky, a brooding and once powerful Carpathian, was betrayed to vampire hunters who tortured and imprisoned him in chains where he has remained for seven years. His memory gone, Jacques' shattered mind reaches out in agony and finally manages to establish a connection with dedicated American surgeon Shea O'Halloran. His voice haunts her dreams and finally she feels compelled to find his place of imprisonment and try to save his life. Her compassion, courage and ability to love will return Jacques to sanity and restore his memory if anything or anyone is able. Shea has a rare blood disease and needs constant blood transfusions to remain alive.

Shea does find Jacques but they are both in terrible danger. They must deal with Jacques' past and also Shea's - which is much more unusual than she knows. Also, the evil men, and vampire, who originally tried to take Jacques' life are hot on their trail, as are his Carpathian family. They believed he was dead and now want to help both Jacque and Shea.

This is an extremely exciting and imaginative novel. The romance is sensual and scorchingly hot, but violent at times - remember, Jacques is not quite sane at first - also the descriptions of his torture are graphic. Ms. Feehan brings back characters from her first Carpathian novel and introduces others. These creatures, (beings?), are wonderful - certainly enough so that most women would offer up their necks without a qualm. Highly recommended. I can't wait to read the next Carpathian novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A captivating, emotionally intense and satisfying read 13 janvier 2000
Par C Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
My sister introduced me to the first book in the series, Dark Prince. I was the one to find Dark Desire on the shelves, and I bought two copies and rushed directly to my sister's house to give her one of them.
Jacques is a man teetering on the brink of insanity after years of torment. Shea is a brilliant surgeon with an endless supply of compassion and a lifetime of loneliness, struggling to find the cure for a blood disorder that will eventually claim her life. She is the one person who can keep him from madness, the other half of his soul. He is the one person who can end her loneliness and provide her the unswerving, unconditional love she both needs and fears.
Christine Feehan has created a fascinating world, filled with drama, passion, and characters that grab your interest and hang on. The Carpathian life mate bond is an intense merging of souls, wonderfully depicted by Ms. Feehan's talented pen. What woman could resist the idea of a gorgeous man who will love her unconditionally, for all eternity, putting her life and happiness before his own?
Whether you're a fan of vampire romance or not, this series is not to be missed for romance readers who love intense, passionate, emotional reads. I can't wait for the next installment.
Good job, Ms. Feehan!

Par Passionate - Publié sur Amazon.com

Whew! I must say that after reading Dark Prince, I could not wait for the next installment of intense passion. Even though I was--and still am--anxiously awaiting Gregori's story, I do not regret reading Jacques and Shea's story. Among other things, I appreciated the way Ms. Feehan set up the beginnings of the relation between Gregori and his future bride.
In Dark Desire, Mikhail's brother Jacques is teetering on the brink of insanity after suffering innumerable wounds, being left for dead, and buried for years. He establishes a telepathic connection with Shea, a human American doctor. Shea doesn't know why she is being followed by mysterious men, but she hears Jacques' call and eventually goes in search of him. She finds this animalistic, riveting "man" and gets him on the way to recovery, but slowly realizes that her relationship with him is getting weirder by the minute. Together, Jacques and Shea must deal with his tenuous grip on reality, her acceptance of Carpathians, their intensely passionate bond, and being hunted by vampire killers.
I loved both leading characters. Shea's scientific outlook makes it believable that she wouldn't totally lose her mind when confronted with the differences between Carpathians and humans, and that she could accept the existence of an entirely new species. The idea that Jacques is so detached from everything around him that Shea is his only reality, and only interest, was immensely seductive to me. His need for her is mental as well as physical, and he has the possessiveness of a caveman. His reactions and motivations are purely primal, which again I found incredibly appealing.
With the Carpathians series, Ms Feehan does a wonderful job of re-introducing readers to the basic, instinctive rapport between male and female. Sensual heat radiates from every chapter, and leaves one lying in bed at night hungering for more.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark Desire 4 août 2000

The sequel to Dark Prince was everything I had hoped for and more. Jacques, the egotistical brother to DP's hero Mikhail and a very likable character, was tortured, staked through the chest (but not the heart), and left locked in a coffin in the basement of an abandoned cottage for seven years. In all that time, his only tie to sanity was a tenuous mental link across the ocean with another woman, one he believes to be his traitor but is his lifemate. Shea O'Halloran, an American doctor, doesn't know the dreams she's been having for years are about a real man until she finds him locked in a coffin with a stake through the chest in the Carpathian mountains. She feels drawn to this man whom she believes has the same blood disease she does, but as she tries to help this tortured man who claims she is his life mate she comes across the secret to her own past. I really, really loved the hero in this book. Christine Feehan had taken the tortured hero to a new level, yet let us retain our pity and adoration for him. Jacques is the epitome of a tortured hero, and those who read the previous book may feel more deeply the loss of the funloving yet sarcastic brother. The heroine is strong as well; she has to be to be able to put up with/recuperate the tortured Jacques. We also get a glimpse at the previous characters and get some ideas on future book characters. I very much recommend this book, whether you like vampire romances or not.
