Bestselling author Kresley Cole continues her seductive Immortals After Dark series with this tale of a vampire shunned even by his own kind and a beautiful phantom, bound together by a passion they cannot resist.
A RAVEN-HAIRED TEMPTRESS OF THE DARK...

A VAMPIRE WARRIOR CONSUMED BY MADNESS...
To prevent him from harming others, Conrad Wroth's brothers imprison him in an abandoned manor. But there, a female only he can see seems determined to drive him further into madness. The exquisite creature torments him with desire, leaving his body racked with lust and his soul torn as he finds himself coveting her for his own.
HOW FAR WILL HE GO TO CLAIM HER?
Yet even if Conrad can win Naomi, evil still surrounds her. Once he returns to the brutality of his past to protect her, will he succumb to the dark needs seething inside him?
April marked 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 books of the series are being redesigned so check out the new covers for Wicked Deeds on a Winter Night and Dark Needs at Night’s Edge. Don’t they look amazing?! To celebrate the new look the ebook formats are on sale for $1.99! Hurry the sale ends May 31, 2015!
Dark Needs at Night’s Edge is one of my favorite books from the Immortals After Dark series. This is because the love story of Conrad Wroth and Néomi Laress was unique a story of a ghost and deranged vampire. Conrad and Néomi are victims of tragedy. Néomi was a famous ballerina who was brutally murdered by her ex-fiance’. She has been haunting her estate since her death and has been sad and alone. Conrad was turned into a vampire by his brothers against his will. Because of his anger he refused guidance from his brothers and became a mercenary/assassin. He has become insane with the memories of the victims whom he drained blood from. Conrad is captured by his brothers and imprisoned at an abandon mansion. When Conrad first meets Néomi he believes he’s gone mad since no one else can see her. But it is the soul mate connection that brings Conrad and Néomi together. As an added twist (and refreshing surprise) Néomi is the seductress and Conrad is the innocent virgin. The scenes between them are hot and erotic!
As with all the books in the series there is the supporting cast of witches and crazy Nix that adds comic relief. Plus there is the action that makes all of Kresley Cole’s book well rounded and so entertaining! Dark Needs at Night’s Edge is the fifth book of the series which can be read as a standalone but I recommend you read the books in order. The books overlap each other so there might be some confusion and spoilers (for if you decide to go back to the first book). The Immortals After Dark series is a must read for all paranormal fans. This series has something for everyone to love!
