Dark Desires After Dusk is another fantastic book in the Immortals After Dark series.
I lovedalmost 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 behaviorand 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 ratin...more
Fun Road Trip Trope: For most of the book, Holly and Cadeon are taking an action-packed road trip from Louisiana to Alaska, where they must meet an evil sorcerer before the month is up. Lots of sexy banter and some bickering along the route. The be...more
Another IAD book done… and still wanting more. Yes, I loved this one as well. Very much indeed *evil grin*. Now there can’t be a review of mine without me picking on the cover. WTF may I ask? I don’t see Cade looking like that AT ALL and another thing, where are his horns? Yes he may have cut them or something but still. I want Cade on the cover having horns. Is it too much to ask? A friend of mine, Aly, sent me a pic of how she sees him and I think it’s just perfect. Here he...more
I really really liked this and once more, I couldn't put it down. Cadeon was a great hero who had me laughing with his lines for the first half and really feeling his pain for the second. He had a really hard choice to make and I did like the way he handled it. He never strayed from the character we've come to know from the previous books, but managed to charm me and make me care for him.
Holly however, was another matter. She was the first heroine I was totally indiferrent about. I did...more
I like to pick up a romance book from time to time, and I prefer historical romance, but last night I was craving for something para-normally/romantically/sizzling hot that had a " virginal miss goody two shoes meets an adorable but dangerous bad boy" vibe to it.
Didn't think I'll find a book that met these criteria. But guess what?
Soooo....Cadeon is a foul-mouthed, sexy, cocky, randy...more
Oh baby baby -- How was I suppose to know
That I could love a demon
Oh baby baby --- I should have probably known
That his horns would be a turn on
Oh pretty baby
My husband now loves this book
And he doesn't even know it
LOLZ!! o-m-g!! I adored this book!! I seriously didn't think that anything could be hotter than a Highlander werewolf but squee diddily dee!! She then brings on the bad boy English Demon that wears leather. AHHHHH...more
After Mockingjay, I was feeling a little too depressed and finded myself in the desperate need of some fun reading. Luckily, I decided to grab Dark desires after dusk and had an amazing time with certain daemon. *wiggles brows*
I've been going back and forth with this series for a while, everybody seems to love it, but honestly, I didn't care too much for the first three books. I'm glad I stick with it, because things have been progressively getting better and no...more
I love this series because it is filled with humor, love, sensuality, and adventures.
The 6th installment of the series perfectly represents these ideas.
Cadeon is a very peculiar character. He is brash and naughty. He is a shrewd and uninhibited mercenary, but at the same time he is infinitely devoted and attentive. I loved how he managed Holly’s disease, and helped her. He was in a very complicated situation, and had to make a serious decision, and he...more
Cadeon Woede is a rage demon. Holly Ashwin is a newly turned Valkryie. HMMMM How to explain???
Cade screwed up bigtime a few centuries ago and he has never lived it down. Because of his callousness his brother, Rydstrom lost his throne. See Cade is a Demon Prince and was supposed to take his brothers place in his absence but he did...more
Even though the key element of the series (where the hero and heroine come to terms with the fact that they are each other's fated partner) is the same throughout the books, Cole manages to give every book it's own twist. Each has it's very own feel to it, but all are romantic, steamy, funny and very entertaining.
In Dark Desires After Dusk Cole combined the unapologetic, sexy, sloppy, badass rage demon Cadeon...more
Exceptional writing style and talent! I'm impressed with how the author has managed to keep each book, so far, in this series so unique. What an imagination! Reading this series in order, I sense there was a plan for these characters. The way Ho...more
I went into DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK liking it quite a bit like the last few books, but came out frustrated and annoyed. I think I made it a little halfway before I started getting annoyed and I guess part of that is because I found the heroine incredibly annoying. It was an exhausting read and I think my expectations may have been ra...more
I don't know how Kresley Cole's 'Immortals After Dark' series keeps getting better, but it does. Each book in this series has ramped up the plotline and put us further on the road towards the Accession. We've learned about Valkyries, Demons, Vamps, Lykae (weres), Ghosts, Phantoms, Wraiths, and Fae. (If I left any entities out, please don't hurt me.) Each with different strengths and weaknesses.
I thought this story was very enjoyable mostly due to the...more
I like most of the book 2/3's of it were good, really it was. It was the 1/3 of the book with Holly the incredibly unbelievable virginal, brainiac, PHD candidate, OCD'd out, inconstant character. *She wrecked the Veyron, how could anyone like a person that does that ?* I didn't believe in her at all, yeah I was shaking my head almost every time she opened her mouth or her thoughts.
Cade- Hot demon man you. Find a girl who'll lick those horns ! He almost carried the whole book himself. He...more
I enjoyed this latest instalment to the Immortals after Dark series, we got a little something new. Demons aren’t new to the series but it’s the first book where it revolves entirely around them. Once again Miss Cole delivers fun and quirky characters, intense and action packed situations.
Cadeon is a Rage Demon which basically means when he gets pissed you will know it, his horns will straighten and he will look like Satan himself or Hellboy without the ta...more
Thumbs Up: 4.5
Overall: Entertaining and sexy as hell. What more could you want?
Characters: Well Written
Plot: Too goals intersect, which one will rule out the other
Page Turner: Yes
Series Cont.? Yes
Book Boyfriend: Cadeon
SUMMARY (50 words or less)
I mean well worth the price of admission. I was thoroughly entertained. Cadeon really made this book. I liked him in a previous book, so it was a real treat to get all of him here...more
After losing his father and eldest brother to war, Rydstrom Woede, Cade's next oldest brother who is now first in line for the throne of their demon Kingdom, sends Cade away to be fostered out to ensure the succession to the throne. One fat...more
I HATE THE COVERS!
...well at least up until "Kiss Of A Demon King" they remind me of the old romance novels my grandmother would read (Fabio! lol) if I h...more
Cadeon has been drawn to Holly for over a year, he's desperate to be with her, but giving up Holly is the key to getting back his brother's kingdom. Dark Desires is also the story of Holly's coming of age. Over the course of the story, she literally grows into the person she was meant to be....more
And the cover... uck. Don't get me started on the cover.
So I was really looking forward to this book after reading the above mentioned books-with-silly-names, because I had come to really like Cade as a character based on the glimpses we got of him from those books. I think I probably went in with too-high expectations...more

He didn't open his eyes. "Nothing wrong with my ears."
"Of course not." She laid the cloth on his forehead. "So . . you and Tera seemed close."
"Been through a lot."
"Was she your girlfriend?"
He gave a laugh that sounded like a grunt. "Not at all."
"And you really didn't sleep with Imatra?"
"Bloody hell, noooo, I didn't . . . She's a slag."
"Then why did you kiss her?" Holly asked.
"Directions. . . and to see."
"To see what?"
"That it wouldn't be all that bad without you."
This was interesting. "Did you make a determination?"
He gave a bitter laugh. "It'll be all that bad."
Oh, Cadeon. "You've known I was your female for a year?" He nodded. "Why I would be chosen for you?"
"Fate decides . . . who I can be most satisfied with."
Nibbling her lip, she asked, "Have you slept with anyone else since you knew it was me?"
"Gave a halfhearted try for a witch . . . she wanted a werewolf instead."
There was no getting around it--Holly was jealous of the witch.
But then Cadeon said, "And I wanted you.”
