A seductive beauty he can never have, yet can’t resist…
Cadeon Woede will stop at nothing to atone for the one wrong that will haunt him forever. But once he secures the key to his redemption, the halfling Holly Ashwin, Cade finds that the woman he thought he could use for his own ends and then forget haunts him as much as his past.
A tormented warrior she should fear, but can’t deny…
Raised as a human, Holly never knew that some frightening legends are real until she encounters a brutal demon who inexplicably guards her like a treasure. Thrust into a sensual new world of myth and power, with him as her protector, she begins to crave the demon’s wicked touch.
Surrender to dark desires…
Yet just when he earns Holly’s trust, will Cade be forced to betray the only woman who can sate his wildest needs — and claim his heart?
He stripped off her top, then his shirt.
“Are you coming on to me to get back at him?”
“Probably.” Down went his zipper.
“I’m okay with that.”
Dark Desires After Dusk is another amazing installment of the Immortals After Dark series: it is full of humor, love, sensuality, and thrilling adventures.
Cadeon is an irresistible character. He is cocky and playful. He is an unscrupulous mercenary, but at the same time he is infinitely devoted and thoughtful. The way he handles Holly’s disease is really great. He is in a very complicated situation, has to make a serious decision, and he is all alone to do it. My heart bled for him, for his sufferings, loss, and guilt.
Holly’s character, her OCD, and her development are absolutely credible (except her virginity…). The change between her behavior at the beginning of the story and the way she embraces the newly revealed aspects of her personality at the end is significant. She doesn’t freak out (much), and as she gets deeper and deeper into the world of the Lore, she realizes that she wants to belong to it.
She is not alone with this, by the way, and I’m so glad there is this latent Valkyrie thing, because it means I could be one! I mean, I have all the necessary characteristics: I love jewelry, fashion, and I can scream. It could happen. So I’m definitely going to face the next lightning storm in my garden…
The erotic scenes are hot and creative, but the main value of the novel is the dynamic and nonstop action: it is fully elaborated, purposeful, and thrilling.
