This is the first demon book in the series. And you might know how I like demon horns  😉 And the infamous horn job! LOL

Cadeon is the sexy, funny and carefree demon we met in Wicked Deeds on a Winter’s Night. He has known that his mate is Holly for a while now, but she’s human, and he can’t claim her because she will not survive it. So he’s stayed away, but he’s constantly watched her.

Holly is a bit of a geek, has some difficulties dealing with real life, and has a huge case of OCD!!!!! It can get a bit frustrating while reading, but it also makes for some very funny moments.  And there’s always the fact that Cadeon has to get her out of her buttoned-up shell.

And, oh, did I mention that she’s a virgin?!?!? But a very curious one at that??? And our sexy demon is not shy AT ALL to let her explore and satisfy her curiosity. *As my thoughts drift to that patch of blond hair trailing down and disappearing into his jeans*
Except now Holly is not human anymore, she is part Valkyrie, and she is the Vessel, a very important part of the Ascension. And everybody wants her because they want to get her pregnant.  Her child will be a very important part of the battle.

We do get to see Nucking Futs Nix! As always I adore her! She’s so funny! And always on target even in her crazy ways. Always has a purpose. Rydstrom was also supposed to be part of this adventure, but “something” happens to him and he …. can’t make it! Oh boy… setting up the next book perfectly!

About Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the electrifying Immortals After Dark paranormal series and the young adult Arcana Chronicles. She has also written five award-winning historical romances.

Since her first novel was released in 2003, Kresley has published nineteen books with Simon & Schuster and has seen her releases translated into more than eighteen foreign languages. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Queensland area of Australia.

Cole’s trademark action, sensuality, and humor are exemplified in her popular Immortals After Dark Series, which revolves around the Lore, a secret stratum of hundreds of immortal creatures--ranging from Vampires to Lykae, Furies to Shifters, and Fey to Valkyrie--that each have their strengths, weaknesses, and age old prejudices against the others. Though they secretly live among humans, they constantly war among themselves, which gives her a lot of material.

In 2007, Kresley won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King. In 2010, Kiss of a Demon King earned Kresley her second RITA award. 2011 brought Cole her second #1 NYT bestseller with Dreams of a Dark Warrior.

She lives in Florida with her husband and far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water.
