    As much as I m loving this series, I have to admit that I didn t love this book as much as the others I liked it, but it was one of those middle of the road, okay types of reads for me The heroine, Holly, in particular, didn t speak to me The fact that I ve been reading the books back to back might be a factor also Since the storylines are very similar, it could just be that it s getting a little redundant In any case, I just didn t connect with this story like I have the others.This book centers on Holly, a not quite transitioned immortal, who is the vessel She is prophesied to bear a child that will be incredibly powerful and has the potential to turn the tides in the immortal war between good vs evil Of course, whether her child will fall on the side of good or evil is largely thought to depend upon the father Cue the suspenseful Poor virginal Holly is being hunted by immortal factions from both sides This OCD, sheltered, twenty something university instructor is about to have her tidy life turned upside down.If you ve read the earlier books in the series, you probably remember Cadeon as the cursed demon that is viewed as responsible for the loss of his brother s crown As a result, he has been forbidden joy in his life, including the claiming of his mate His entire life revolves around regaining the throne that he lost.Cadeon has been watching over Holly for quite some time He recognizes her as his female, but aside from his punishment, the fact that she is human makes her off limits for any immortal When she is determined to be the vessel, he knows he must protect her After coming to her rescue, Cadeon takes Holly on the run He wants to keep her, but he has other responsibilities that must take precedent He has spent nearly a millennium trying to redeem himself in the eyes of others and he cannot give up his cause easily.Overall, this was a good story It didn t appeal to me as much as the earlier books, but it was still okay There was action adventure this time around and plenty of tension So far, this has been my least favorite of the books in this series, but I will definitely be continuing on with it At the same time, it s still far better than many of the books I ve read.

    Gods, I love it when you talk mathy to me Cadeon Woede was very hot in the last book, but frankly, he s kinda bleak for me when it comes to this book Dark Desires After Dusk promised the butterflies in my stomach when I started reading the very first chapter, Cadeon s appearance stole my breath away and Holly was the heroine that I liked very much, she s so typical and easygoing, especially I loved her mind when the problems plow her One last question Very well, dearling Can I trust Cadeon N x gave her a sunny smile withblank golden eyes As far as you can throw him By the way, the whole story was quite predictable, it did point out where the ending would be I appreciated the action scenes, though Kresley Cole put many of them in this book and that lead the story to the climax with a steady pace Holly is so human whose heart is tough as steel, she doesn t give up easily with Cadeon being around her and wating something from her I ve got a fortune in gold Ah, was that a flicker in your eye Do you like me better now that you know I m rich He curled his finger under her chin Because I m all right with that Cade is a jerk for me for what he s done He doesn t deserve to be forgiven, but nah I knew it s the end of this book, therefore, it s time to make his wish happen even though it didn t feel natural for me at all However, I m looking forward to his brother s book that must be hot because he does steals the scene whenever he takes part in this book.https lReCih

    Cadeon Woede Demon Holly Ashwin Human Valkyrie What I have learned from this book about demons 1 Demons love to corrupt young virgins.2 Demons always lie to get what they want, i.e Never trust a demon, love 3 Demons don t kiss and tell, i.e What happens with the demon, stays with the demon 4 Demons have lickable horns according to Valkyrie N x.The story of the na ve halfling Holly Ashwin who thought that she was a human until she wasn t a human any and the cocky demon Cadeon Woede who though that he was a ruthless, heartless demon until he wasn t ruthless and heartless any.Or the story of the shy virgin and the naughty bastard

    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 view spoiler her virginity hide spoiler

    I absolutely loved this latest by Kresley Cole, the story of the demon Cadeon and the half human, half valkyrie Holly.Cade is such a BAD boy, and he s everything that Holly isn t He s sexy, brash, foul mouthed, a slob, uncouth, lusty, and living with 900 years of guilt over losing his brother s kingdom while trying to save his foster family I felt a lot of empathy for him, especially when he finally found a chance at happiness but knew he could never claim it.Holly, the beautiful virgin PhD candidate with OCD, was so repressed, I didn t think there could ever be a relationship between her and Cade But to the author s credit, she had Holly resist Cade s charms for most of the book she had a real love hate relationship with him She was attracted to him and she wanted him, yet she hated that she did.I loved how Cade taught Holly how to protect herself and how to fight, and helped ease her transition into becoming a Valkyrie I loved all the little thoughtful things he did for her to accomodate her OCD too Loved the teasing and the sexual bantering between the two lots of sexual tension in this one And once again the actual sex scenes were few, but extremely erotic And when Holly finally let loose, there wasn t a better sexual match for Cade I found this one a little gruesome and horror like, especially at the ending when they had to battle all the disgusting creatures in the little Northwest Territories town, where Holly finally proved herself as a formidable Valkyrie It was non stop action And although Cade did betray Holly, I wanted her to forgive him I did , and I absolutely loved how he still made allowances for her OCD when he presented her with her future home Underneath all his alpha ness, Cade was really a sweet guy

    4 1 2 stars Dark Desires After Dusk is another fantastic book in the Immortals After Dark series I loved almost everything about this book Cade and Holly, the hero and heroine, were simply magical together, and, frankly, a hoot Holly with her over the top OCD behavior and her nerdish outlook and Cade a true but lovable cad were the perfect pair and I couldn t seem to get enough of their offbeat and very provocative relationship I m sure you re wondering why I gave this book a somewhat lower rating if I loved it so much For me, the ending was a little disappointing and anticlimactic Basically, the relationship resolution felt rushed and a bit underdeveloped I wanted no, I need a Did Cade and Holly get their happy ending You bet Still, I wanted considering all they had been through together Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book A special SHOUT OUT to Krisley Cole s quirky and eccentric soothsayer, Nucking Futs N x s She is my favorite character of the series and I look forward to her involvement in each book Call me crazy, but I would love to see N x get her man, Mike Rowe, the host of the American s TV series Dirty Jobs.

    I FINALLY figured out WHY I enjoy PNR fantasy genre as much as I do because when it comes to this genre, pretty much ANYTHING goes and you never once or at least I never did question HOW or WHY Now, add to this already great fact Kresley Cole s ability to tell a story she weaves so masterfully about a couple that is, once again, very unique and just overall fabulous, sprinkle the sexual tension that only Kresley can do and you got yourself a winner with every single installment in this series.I don t have much to say that I haven t already said about this series in my previous reviews other than I am adding Cade and Holly to my ever growing list of Kresley s swoon worthy heroes and kick ass heroines that love them And the fact that, once again, I can NOT wait to dive into the next book, which is what I am doing IMMEDIATELY If you are a fantasy genre lover and or a lover of alpha heroes who fall head over heels in love with some of THE best heroines you ll ever read about, this series is NOT to be missed You HAVE to experience this beautifully crafted world filled with some of the most entertaining, funny, sexy, sword wielding creatures told via Kresley Cole s amazing writing Cheers

    Hot Damn, I loved it Cade was Yummy as SinHe gets 4.5 Sexy, Cocky Stars CadeCade has been blessed with impossibly green eyes and thick locks of blonde hair He s hot, and yummy, and women are falling over themselves to get in his bed But his life has been far from blessed Cade has been living with the guilt of losing his brother s crown over nine hundred years ago That guilt has led him to a dark place where he is willing to do Anything to get his brother s crown back Demons are constantly in search of their fated mate, but mates are hard to find The only way to determine one s mate is to have sex with them So as you can imagine, demons tend to sleep around A LOT And Cade is known as a man whore even amongst demons But all that changed when he met Holly Holly, math geekHolly is a human, math geek, germ a phobe, and math tutor at the local college She doesn t wear makeup, dresses conservatively in long skirts, wears her hair in a bun, and always wears a pearl necklace and glasses The sports jocks that she tutors have the total hots for her No matter how hard she tries to hide her sexiness, she turns heads Men drool as if she is wearing a micro mini and thigh highs.Holly has a dark side that she fights hard to keep a tight reign on She denies herself sex because she is afraid to lose control Her germ a phobia and type A personality are out of control But her life is about to change and All Hell is about to break lose You you fraternized with those animals Does your breed kidnap women as well Kidnap women I can hardly keep the chits off the jock as it is, pet Cade is sex on a stick, but Holly has no interest in him and it is driving him mad He has looked for his mate for over nine hundred years only to be denied How could fate be so cruel He just wants to throw her over his shoulder caveman style I absolutely loved watching these two fall in love Cade was so used to women falling at his feet that he was not prepared for Holly She is SO quirky and odd that I could t help but love her I loved watching her transform from an oddball to a total badass Oh and when Holly finally accepts Cade into her life These horny lovers couldn t keep their hands off each other Later, I m gonna do you nice and slow, but right now I just need to bend you over things and see what this sexy little body of yours can do This has to be my favorite book of this series so far It was action packed from start to finish Cade was so sexy and I loved his cocky ass personality Plus he had sexy ass horns that were great for grabbing hold of during sex It was also wonderful to watch him learn some humility I especially loved watching him cater to Holly s quirking and bizarre needs Holly ends up on a journey of growth She was originally a product of a sheltered environment She was a caterpillar on the cusp of blossoming into a butterfly I highly recommend reading this series in order because all one story leads into the next and there is an overall plot that continues to grow Characters also reappear throughout the series and it would be confusing as hell to try and read out of order.Kresley Cole has done and Amazing job at creating this paranormal world, and I am Loving it My Immortals After Dark Reviews The Warlord Wants ForeverA Hunger Like No OtherNo Rest for the WickedWicked Deeds on a Winter s NightDark Needs at Night s Edge Dark Desires After DuskKiss of a Demon KingUntouchablePleasure of a Dark PrinceDemon from the DarkDreams of a Dark WarriorLothaireDark Skye

    Mild Spoilers3.5 Stars This one was not as good for me as the others I have read in this series I had a very hard time connecting to Holly or Cade Holly got on my nerves with her I don t cuss I don t have sexual feelings of any kind I have a boyfriend of two year but I don t even kiss him on the mouth oh and I don t eat or drink anything the isn t prepackaged and I if i touch the rim of my drinks it ruined I don t see her appeal Even if I could get past that Cade lied the whole story and His betrayals were hard to get over I understand that in the story he was between a rock and a hard place but it just don t make for a very romantic story I really liked cade in other books but not so much in this one I didn t hate him but I wouldn t want him for my man I am a sucker for babies in love stories so I did rate it a little higher because of the baby Also the ending seemed rushed I am off to the next one and I hope it is better than this one

    Reviewed by Rabid Reads.After three superb installments, this series hit a bit of a snag with book 4, but I wasn t going to hold that against Kresley Cole or Robert Petkoff, and I m glad I didn t because DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK was glorious One of the things that I love most about IMMORTALS AFTER DARK is that you meet some of the protagonists beforehand because on top of giving you something to look forward to, it also helps to get readers invested in each character s eventual outcome.Holly wasn t the first heroine whom I ve encountered that s been afflicted with OCD, however she was by far the most likable Ashwin has lead a very PG life as a result of her condition which in turn is the reason why her transformation to Valkyrie was unusually delayed Intense emotions and warriors are practically synonymous, so when a group of immortals attempt to kidnap her, it frees her combatant side I think Cade s attitude in relation to Holly s disorder went a long way towards endearing her to me because he not only understood her limitations, but respected them, and that sensitized me to her plight instead of making it into a baffling annoyance.As fetching as some of the female leads have been, let s face it, I listen to this series for the men and Petkoff s narration, but I ll get to that , and Cadeon Woede was delectable I liked that he wanted to do right by his brother, and to a lesser degree, his mate His loyalties were first, and foremost to Rydstrom, although that didn t stop him from teaching Holly how to fight Nix s behind the scenes meddling continues to amuse, and with all of this talk of vessels, the Ascension, and the demons going to war, it s not unreasonable to assume that I ll be in the loop on all things IAD when 14 comes out because this series just keeps getting better You can tell that Robert Petkoff recorded the first ten novels in close proximity to one another by his ever increasing proficiency with Cole s characters and writing He was fully immersed in this universe for quite some time while bringing the audiobook versions of this series up to speed, and that fact comes through in his delivery, accents, and fervor I enjoyed his rendition of the rage demon aspects of Cade s personality, and applaud his commitment to the steamier parts of these stories.DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK put the MMMmmm in demons 4.5 stars
