In this next installment in the Immortals After Dark Series, USA TodayBestselling author Kresley Cole delivers a scorching tale about a forbidding vampire who lives in the shadows and the beautiful assassin who hunts him there.
A vampire soldier weary of life...
Centuries ago, Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire—a nightmare in his mind—against his will. Burdened with hatred and alone for ages, he sees little reason to live. Until an exquisite, fey creature comes to kill him, inadvertently saving him instead.
A valkyrie assassin dispatched to destroy him...
When Kaderin the Cold Hearted lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow—accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings—particularly lust—emerge multiplied. For the first time, she's unable to complete a kill.
Competitors in a legendary hunt...
The prize of the month-long contest is powerful enough to change history, and Kaderin will do anything to win it for her sisters. Wanting only to win her, forever, Sebastian competes as well, taking every opportunity—as they travel to ancient tombs and through catacombs, seeking relics around the world—to use her new feelings to seduce her. But when forced to choose between the vampire she's falling for and reuniting her family, how can Kaderin live without either?
April marks the beginning of XOXO After Dark’s Year of Kresley Cole leading up to the publication of her next Immortals After Dark hardcover! I love this series and I can’t wait to find out who is the next couple to fall in love. This is my first year as a XOXpert and I am so excited to spread the word on this series. For the next couple months I will be spotlighting a book from the series, leading up to the exciting news.
The first 3 books of the series – The Warlord Wants Forever, A Hunger Like No Other, and No Rest for the Wicked covers have been redesigned! Don’t they look amazing?! To celebrate the new look the ebook formats are on sale for $1.99! Hurry the sale ends May 3, 2015!
No Rest for the Wicked is the third book in the Immortals After Dark series and is one of my favorites. This was another incredible story in the series but would stands out is the passion that vampires feel towards their mates. Sebastian Wroth has been hiding in his home for years, angry still at his brothers for turning him into a vampire. Of his brothers Sebastian was the intelligent but socially awkward of the family so his life as a hermit has suited him. That is until the Valkyrie Kaderin the Cold Hearted comes into his life. The moment they meet it is earthshattering, literally! For male vampires when they find their “bride” their heart is brought back to life so the scene is shocking and soooo romantic (she brought him back to life!!). But it isn’t love at first sight for Kaderin and Sebastian is determined to win her love. He goes so far as to help her win the Talisman’s Hie, the immortals version of the reality show The Amazing Race.
No Rest for the Wicked is the third book of the series but it can be read as a standalone. This is another sexy, romantic and fun story from Kresley Cole. I loved the passion between Sebastian and Kaderin and the hilarious scenes from these characters. The Immortals After Dark series is a must read for all paranormal fans and for those who are looking for action, romance and comedy. This series has something for everyone to love!

Name: Sebastian Wroth
Appearance: 6 foot tall, black hair, stormy grey eyes
A master strategist and harsh commanding officer who fought alongside his three brothers in the Great Northern War. Sebastian was turned into a Vampire against his will by his brothers Nikolai and Murdoch.
Name: Kaderin the Cold Hearted
Appearance: Petite, white blonde curly hair, coffee brown eyes, golden skin
A delicate, vulnerable, yet chilling assassin, Kaderin is the most prolific vampire killer the Valkyrie have ever known. Because of Kaderin’s mercy to a vampire a millennium ago, both of her full-blood sisters (born with her as triplets) were murdered. She begged for oblivion from the sorrow and guilt, and some mysterious entity deadened her sorrow – accidentally extinguishing all her emotions. Once known as Kaderin the Kind Hearted, she now represents the Valkyrie and the Furies in the Talisman’s Hie.
“If you feel lust“—he pressed a kiss against her collarbone—”I want you automatically to seek me to ease it.”
