Quick Reviews...

While I was sick, I managed to read quite a bit so I'm going to do some quick reviews on some of the books that I've read recently. Today's reviews: 3 from Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series. I bought a Kresley Cole Bundle from that was 3 books:

A Hunger Like No Other

A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her…

After enduring years of torture from the vampire Horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy...

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents--until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae--and their notorious dark desire--ebb as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

An all consuming desire...

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be...?

my thoughts~ This was the first book that I read and I think that I enjoyed it the most. There is just something about a man with an accent that I adore. I loved Emma & Lachlan. This is one seriously HOT couple who will stop at nothing to be together!

Wicked Deeds On A Winter's Night

Her breathless kiss haunts him.

Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was nearly destroyed when he lost the one woman meant for him. The ruthless warrior grew even colder, never taking another to his bed—until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited, reawakens his darkest desires. When sinister forces unite against her, the Highlander finds himself using all his strength and skill to keep her alive.

His slow, hot touch is irresistible.

Temporarily stripped of her powers, Mari is forced to take refuge with her sworn adversary. It’s rumored that no one can tempt Bowen’s hardened heart, but soon passion burns between them. Though a future together is impossible, she fears he has no intention of letting her go.

No deed is too wicked for her seduction.

If they defeat the evil that surrounds them, can Mari deny Bowen when he demands her body and soul—or will she risk everything for her fierce protector?
my thoughts~ This book had some serious twists to it! I could say that I loved it for those twists alone, but it wouldn't be the truth. I liked Bowen. Even when I was thinking "boy men sure do suck that do that!" I still liked him. And I have to say that Kresley Cole has her heroines & heroes steaming up the pages!

Pleasure Of A Dark Prince

A Dangerous Beauty Lucia the Huntress: as mysterious as she is exquisite, she harbors secrets that threaten to destroy her—and those she loves.

An Uncontrollable Need

Garreth MacRieve, Prince of the Lykae: the brutal Highland warrior who burns to finally claim this maddeningly sensual creature as his own.

Lead to a Pleasure so Wicked. . . .

From the shadows, Garreth has long watched over Lucia. Now, the only way to keep the proud huntress safe from harm is to convince her to accept him as her guardian. To do this, Garreth will ruthlessly exploit Lucia’s greatest weakness—her wanton desire for him. . . .
my thoughts~ Whats not to love about Garreth? *sigh* I mean really he will do anything to get his "lass. He forgives Lucia everything she does to get away from him (and she does alot of wicked things) because she knows if/when she succumbs to him, she will be forever changed. Literally. This is another couple that I can't wait to catch glimpses of in other books!
