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 we 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 state his wildest needs--and claim his heart?

This series only gets better with each book! Dark Desires After Dusk it the 5th full length book in the Immoratals After Dark series by Kresley Cole, and like many paranormal romance series you COULD read this one without reading the earlier books BUT WHY WOULD you? This series is some much fun and you get to see other characters before and after they find their mate. And you would miss all the hilarious Valkyriev moments.

So Dark Desires After Dusk is about a demon, Cade and a human Holly. Ever since Cade saw Holly he knew she was his mate but since she was only human he’s stayed away. Why? Because humans and demons cannot mate. The humans would not make it through the claiming, so Cade has watched over his female from afar. Until….a group of immortals try to kidnap her. That’s where everything gets turned upside down.

Cade and Holly embark on a road trip from hell in order to keep her safe. Sexual tension is high and emotions are running wild. Not to mention they everyone wants to kill Holly.

Cole really knows how to write a PNR with humor and high heat levels. And these books are fantasic on audio. Robert Petkoff brings these nutty characters to life. I’m sure I would not laugh as loud if I was reading the books. Robert puts so much dazzle into the Valkyriev women that he has me spitting my drink out at times. And he knows how to make the men with those yummy accents purr. Both the writing and narration for the IAD series is just top notch.

The audios for the series are slowing being released as Robert records them and I can’t wait for the next audio, Kiss of a Demon King which releases May 7, 2013.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I don’t remember why but I do recall going into this book thinking I was going to hate it. Maybe because I think the cover is terrible but it ended up being one of my favorites in the series.
