TABT…Dark Desires After Dusk by Kresley Cole


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. 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. 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?


Another great, hot book by Cole.  Cadeon and Ashwin were wonderful together, but they were just as strong separately, which was really kind of cool.  In particular, I loved the scene at the bridge and the way Ashwin took care of Cadeon afterward, and the showdown with the bad guy.  In those scenes, Ashwin showed that she was a Valkyrie down to her core.  As I’ve said with Cole’s other books, I really recommend you read the previous books in the series, otherwise some of the surrounding character’s actions would be more mysterious than they need to be, such as the scenes with Mari, Bowen and Nix.  I cannot wait for Nix’s book…though I know we’ll have to wait for a bit, as Kiss of a Demon King, the next book in the series, is Rydstrom’s.
