Sarah Bailey is a wonderful author.

Paranormal romance is not a genre I would usually read, which is exactly why I added this to my "to be read" list.

So you can imagine my surprise when I slowly found myself becoming hooked to a book for which I am not the target demographic. Suddenly I needed to know where Lukas and Ellas's journey was taking them.

A brief word on the elephant in the room; I've not read a book with such...vivid word imagery when it comes to sex. Sarah has a real talent in makin

A well written paranormal romance between two passionate characters, Ella and Lukas.
This book surprised me from the very beginning with the author's concise language and ability to tell a great, and original story. There were some fantasy and supernatural elements throughout which were entwined well. I was extremely happy because too many times have I read a romance and said, wow that's cheesy, but with "Demon's Destiny" I never caught myself saying that once. I was eager to continue reading aft

Wow. This book flew by. I read it over the course of two nights. It is written with energy and verve taking the reader by the hand (and other body parts) through a compelling story about a woman's awakening powers, and her whirlwind relationship with a stranger that rescues her from demons. There are erotic scenes throughout which venture close to the explicit territory, without crossing the barrier into pure filth. They fit the story and are not merely there for the reader's titillation.

Bailey has written a romantic, sexy tale with a touch of darkness. The action, whether it be amorous or adventurous, doesn't quit. The cast of characters are lovely and I can't wait to read about them in the rest of the After Dark series. If you're looking for a fun escape read, I highly recommend!

Ella knew that she was different, but that had never been a problem until now. After she is rescued by Lukas from a possible life ending run in with some demons, she must help him track down an artifact that will lead her on the road to discovering who and what she is.

Bailey does a lot of things very well in this book. From the first altercation in the alley, I was drawn into the world that she created for this series. The characters are well developed and relatable even though they are otherwor

Sarah Bailey’s After Dark debut kicks off with Demon’s Destiny – the story of Lukas (a demon) and Ella Ward. I was absolutely hooked from the first chapter, having been pulled into a dangerous life-changing situation with Ella, I was taken on a journey that I’m still buzzing from.
Sarah Bailey sets the scene, pulls us into the minds of both characters in a way that is skilful, well-paced and simply natural.
I just have to mention the simmering chemistry and undeniable tension between Lukas and Ell

Rescued by a demon. An offer she can’t refuse. Hell is on its way.

Demon’s Destiny starts off with Ella being caught in an alley by some unsavoury types trying to have their way with her. This immediately sets the tone for the rest of the book. When she is rescued by Lukas, a demon bounty hunter from hell, she gives up her life to follow him and let him keep her save.

What follows is an entertaining story about two adults who try to deny their love for each other, each for their own reasons. The h

I'm in love

I couldn't put this book down, the story is unique and I'll admit ive fallen in love with lukas . It's not just the main characters or the story that I love, each side character you meet had a strong individual personality, it's refreshing I usually find side characters lack the spark but daisy is so much fun honestly I can not wait to read vampires kiss. If you love fantasy and the supernatural you need this book in your life!!

From the very first page, the author takes you on a supernatural romantic journey, with two oh-so-loveable characters Ella and Lukas, that will have you turning each page with anticipation, to see just what happens next to the both of them. I HIGHLY recommend this book! What are you waiting for? GO GET IT!
