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 he 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 sate his wildest needs — and claim his heart?(Description from Barnes & Noble)
Ms. Cole never disappoints!
Another fantastic book within the Immortals After Dark series.
Again, the main characters were wonderful.
Cadeon never believed he would want anything more than to win back his brother's crown and restore his kingdom, until he found his mate, Holly. She is everything he is usually not attracted to, but he can't help wanting her.
Though, he knows he can never claim her because he has to hand her over to an evil sorcerer - he must betray her trust so that he can gain a weapon powerful enough to kill the one who has stolen his brother's crown.
Holly always knew something was different about her, besides her O.C.D. and now she knows - she is not entirely human! And she has demons trying to kill her. She knows that Cadeon is absolutely the wrong kind of man for her, yet she can't help but be drawn to him and stuck with him, since he rescued her and has vowed to keep her safe. Can she trust him?
This is one crazy adventure. The only thing that held me back from giving it 5 of 5 is that I felt it was a bit too long and drawn out.
If you haven't already checked out this series - you should!
