After Sunset

Two years of hard work finally paid off. After an emotional but necessary move, Winter Frame was now the proud owner of Bayou Books in New Orleans. She loved her new friends and apartment in the French Quarter and she wouldn’t have it any other way. So what if the natives were a little too involved in folklore and superstitions? It wasn’t real, so she had nothing to really ...more

While this story has a bit of a slow start, it is definitely racing by the end. Zahir is a fascinating character. It’s fun reading such unusual and diverse characters. I’m anxiously waiting for the next book in the series.

After Sunset by Nicole Renee is a book with paranormal characters. I did find the book to be well written, and Zahir and Winny had great chemistry between each other. This is not one of my typical reads, but I do enjoy reading new authors and trying out their work. Although this is not a book that I would buy for myself I would recommend it to those that enjoy reading this genre.

If it involves Serpent Kings, secret identities, Demon lord trying to take over the world, and all kinds of other immortal Paranormal creatures, you would definitely see me reading it. After Sunset is one such story with so much to offer plus a bonus of the Characters from West Africa, Libya to be precise. It has all my favorite things in a book from fated mates to fighting demon kings.

Wow I Wow! I love me some paranormal but this book just blew me away! I loved Winny from the start. She had such a kind way about her and she stepped up and helped a stranger in need without hesitation. Something more people can learn to do.
Anyway Zahir was wow! At first I was worried he would be a total jerk but really he was holding so much weight on his shoulders. Not to mention the world of the duals.
Their story was amazing and both characters were so strong. No one needed saving because the

This book was fantastic! After moving to New Orleans, Winny is now the owner of Bayou Books. She’s made some new friends and settling in to her new life. Winny was such a kind soul. Zahir has the weight of the supernatural community on his shoulders to think about and worrying about what his brother is doing in the human community just adds to his list. I truly loved Zahir, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like him at first, but he was absolutely incredible. I loved the relationship that develope ...more

I’m at 50% and nothing is happening. Zahir and Winny are not together. No action has taken place. We heard second hand information of duals having altercations but nothing between main characters which leads me to believe the rest will be rushed. We will have an epilogue with year later of all the things we wanted to see in the book. If the story isn’t just about Winny and Zahir why put only them in the synopsis? I skipp over Devian portion because he is not a main character. Amara && Akachi

This book was absolutely awesome. I loved the main character Winny. She was such an honest and trusting person. Also the two brothers Zahir and Akachi Slade were hot!!! Loved the interaction Between the characters and the story telling. The wide variety of characters was so interesting and kept me engaged the entire time. The story had a good balance of light and dark. I also found the bad guy Davien very interesting. This definitely needs a sequel!! I loved reading about this fascinating world. ...more

This is my first time reading a book by Nicole Renee and I love adding to the list of Authors I read. This book “After Sunset” took a little longer for me to get into, but in saying that, the Author was creating the world this story takes place in. Farther in, I found it easy to read and enjoyed the characters and their “duals”. There was a good amount of suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat, as well as a touch of steamy! Main characters “Winter” and “Zahir” will quickly melt your heart ...more

First i thought the story was going to be about Winter and Akachi. But then I realized he was the younger brother and it was about Zahir. Hmmmm. How they are put together was interesting because of his brother not obeying the rules he had set. Fro there I was not sure what i was reading until the light bulb went off. These characters were build and i forgot the real purpose of the book. It was very good. Remember to pause when reading the book. I liked it.

An exciting tale with werewolves, vampires, seers, and many more interesting creatures. The unsuspecting humans of New Orleans have no idea that whole world exists right along beside them. When winter decides to open up shop, she not only discovers this world, but finds she's an integral part of it. Throw in a sexy serpent king and his cute brother and this is a book you want to read. I'll be looking forward to the next one in the series! ...more
Oh my! Ok, first thing first, I am going to need Amara and Akachi’s story. From beginning (the real beginning) to happily ever after! On to this amazing story... so, to be honest, I haven’t read a paranormal romance in forever so this was like visiting an old friend. I loved the concept of the “dual” and as well as the addition of witches and vampires. The love story that develops between Winny and Zahir is beautiful. I love how the story grows and tells how truly perfect for each other they are ...more

First off I love a good paranormal story and this is one was a really good one. I haven't read a good paranormal story in such a long time and I was kind of sure I won't find one that held my interest for very long, but this one right here did that and more it had me wanting to know more and more, and I found that I couldn't put it down no matter how hard I tried I wanted to know more and more. Great Job Nicole Renee can't wait to see what you do next. ...more

This was a fantastic read. I loved the main characters Zahir ans Winny are wonderful. The other characters are so full of life I can't wait to see what Nicole Renee does with them in the world of the serpent king. I loved this book. So well written it comes together with romance, steamy hot intimacy and action packed suspense. A must read for all paranormal romance readers. ...more

Winny left California for New Orleans. Although she knew no one here, she felt it was where she belonged. She opened her bookstore and settled into life. Although there was something missing, she just didn’t know what. Soon she made a friend and started hearing strange tales. Was there more out there that Winny knew nothing about?
