Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole

(Note: Illiterate me, has been writing Kresley's name wrong. This is the first time in the last two years of reading this author that I noticed her name is Kresley and not Kelsy. We are so programmed by modern names that, sometimes we fail to notice changes. It takes a little more to change the home page. I will get to it asap.)

Everyone has their own motives in the well written book number six of Immortals After Dark series. Trying to keep them straight is the easy part. Heroine, Sabine, is a Sorceress. She has one main goal and that is to live.


Her half-brother Omort the Deathless, the evil king of Rothkalina, sends Sabine to capture and seduce Rydstrom the Demon King. Omort knows that Rydstrom is trying to find a sword that is said to be able to kill Omort.


Sabine has her own plans for the future. She hopes that if she can use Rydstrom to produce an heir with her, she will be able to get rid of Omort and take over the throne. With her beauty and illusion power she is sure she will have no problem in achieving her goal.


Little does she know that Rydstrom is on to her plan to seduce him and he doesn't want any part of her or Omort's plans. Rydstrom has his own plan. He wants to kill Omort and recapture his throne. On the way to meet an accomplice in his quest, he is fooled by Sabine's illusions into stepping through a portal to a cell in the dungeon of his old castle in Rothkalina. Now Sabine can begin her seduction plans. Unfortunately for Sabine though not everything goes the way she plans. Rydstrom isn't as easy to seduce as she had thought.

After Sabine, the Queen of Illusions, lures and traps Rydstrom Woede in her lair, the ruthless warrior fights to resist her seduction. But his fierce demon nature lusts for her delicate body and won't be denied. Even as Rydstrom plots to escape, he still intends to claim Sabine as his own--on his terms.


Her downfall: the battle-scarred demon who vows to keep her at all costs.

When Rydstrom breaks free, he abducts Sabine, turning the tables. Now she's the one struggling to resist his delicious torment. With each relentless encounter, Sabine hungers more for her merciless adversary.


They were never supposed to want each other this much. . .

If they can defeat the sinister enemy that stands between them, will Sabine make the ultimate sacrifice to save her demon? Or will the proud king lay down his crown and arms to keep his sorceress?

Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his Bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn't enjoy a heartbeat or breaths and is consequently weaker than natural born vampires. He wants his Bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature.


Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress who can "make you want her even as she's killing you." She has devoted her life to protecting an ancient, powerful jewel and to fighting the vampires, and she now sees a way to torment one—for with Wroth's heartbeat comes consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her.


She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen the jewel which commands her, giving him absolute power over her. While he possesses it, he can make her do anything, and he plans to in order for her to experience first hand the agonizing, unending lust she'd purposely, boastingly, subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Wroth realizes he wants more from her and frees her, will she come back to him?
