Welcome to my little corner of the world; a lady's den of depravity in which anything is possible. 

I am an Erotic Romance and ManLove author, and I want nothing more than to share my saucy stories with my fellow depraved sensualists. So please come, sit, relax and lose yourself in my tales of forbidden love and enchanted romance.

どうしようもないけれど 1 - Isaku Natsume, 夏目イサク

This is a new author to me, and I have to say, I am in love. The artwork and storyline is beautiful. It is exactly the kind of yaoi romance I enjoy. It is sweet, with a lot of adult humour and a romance to keep me glued to the pages. Absolutely worth a read. 

Dark Hunter Series

 

 

I started reading this series back in October, and I honestly just forgot to review the books as I went along. So, in a show of laziness, I am going to give a general review. The series started out great, Books 1 - 6 are among my favourite. I really enjoyed the ongoing storyline and the characters struggles. Not every romance can be rainbows and butterflies, and you see this in Kenyon's books. Each of her Hunter's has a dark past he needs to overcome, and it is enjoyable watching them get there.

 

Following book 6 things got a little meh for me. I honestly disliked the Dream Hunter instalments. I'm sorry, but I just found them too slow. I actually couldn't finish reading Upon the Midnight Clear or Dream Chaser. With the other books it was just hit and miss from me. I enjoyed Wren, Acheron, Seth, and Max's stories. And I loved Styxx. However, and it's a huge goddamn however, I think at times it could be a little too graphic. Apart from that, it was an amazing story. 

 

I look forward to seeing more from the Dragon's and of course Thorn! These male's have piqued my interest. 

 

(The four stars is an overall rating. I would give Books 1-6, 8, 15, 21, 24, 25 all four stars each. Book 23, who is Styxx, would be the only five star rating) 

Stalk Me!

Rune & Josie

Sweet Ruin (Immortals After Dark) - Kresley Cole

I love the fact that sixteen books into this series, Kresley still manages to ensnare me. Her storylines continue to be just as good, if not better than, the last. I have to admit though, I was a little surprised when I learned who this book was about. Two new characters we had never heard of before – I was expecting Munro to be honest. But I enjoyed it regardless.

Turns out that our heroine, Josie, is the sister of Thad – so we get to learn a whole lot more about their mysterious species. And as with all Kresley’s females, Jo is a badass. Which I enjoy.

Rune, on the other hand I was unsure of. He was one of those characters you love to hate. As far as my hero complex goes I’m afraid he didn’t exactly fit into my box of hotties due to his 'sex as a tool' obsession, but I still found myself taking a liking to him.

Their story was action packed, sexy, and everything I've come to love about this series. I’m curious to learn more about these two and see where their alliances lay when it comes to the Accession.

Thronos & Lanthe

Dark Skye (Immortals After Dark, #14) - Kresley Cole

From friends – to enemies – to lovers

 

This was another enjoyable instalment to the IAD series, and actually one I have been waiting for a while to read. Lanthe and Thronos’ relationship has been hinted at since Sabine’s book. My curiosity was piqued then and there. So much hatred. So much aversion to one another. Yet deep down there is so much unwelcomed love and lust. I really loved these two characters and the dynamic between them. So as you can imagine I enjoyed watching their romance bloom and grow as they righted past wrongs and overcame new obstacles together.

 

Kresley Cole has yet to disappoint with her fantastic storylines and amazing characters.

Will & Chloe

MacRieve (Immortals After Dark, #13) - Kresley Cole

This installment of the IAD series was amazing. I attacked the book with a frenzy, and finished it in one sitting. Uilleam's story had me enraptured. I don't think a book has left me as emotional as this one has. The hero went through so much abuse and torture in his lifetime, and the build-up just became too much for him. To a point where he would mistreated those who were undeserving. Especially his mate, Chloe.

 

These two had so many obstacles to overcome. Will’s temper, and refusal to change, the main one. My heart was in my throat wondering what was going to happen next, and how was Will going to repent and fix things with Chloe? It all made for a fantastic read.

 

And following that epilogue I am on edge awaiting Munro’s book!  

Trehan & Bettina

Shadow's Claim - Kresley Cole

Even though this book is part of the IAD series, it is also the first installment in the The Dacian’s. The secret Vampire clan within the Lore who we met in Lothaire’s book.

 

I really enjoyed this book. Trehan, a ruthless master assassin, follows a wayward demon into Abaddon in order to keep his home safe. Yet instead of capturing his foe, he finds Bettina. A shy and fearful Sorceress, and his Bride. Pleased with this discovery he dreams of a life he thought long out of his reach. However, things don’t go as he wishes and he finds himself locked in a death match in order to win his mates hand. I really enjoyed the tournament, and as with Kresley’s other books you can’t help but love the characters and get caught up in their romance.

Lothaire & Ellie

Lothaire - Kresley Cole

*gets the pom poms* Lothaire! Lothaire! The evil we love to hate…or is it hate to love? Whatever, he is amazing!

 

I must say, this is now my favourite book in the series. This crazed vampire, the Enemy of Old, or Leo as his human calls him, was a pleasure to read. He was deliciously disturbed, yet a sweetie at the same time. I enjoyed watching him try to come to terms with his feelings for Elizabeth, and his crazy. I equally enjoyed how Elizabeth would brush him off without a fear or a doubt. This heroine is one of my favourite to date. As is their relationship. They bounced off each other, infuriating and arousing the other to a high degree. Always hot, be it with rage or lust. Without a doubt the perfect match! Regardless of the trouble Saroya caused them.  

 

This is most definitely a must read for fans of the ancient sarcastic enigma that is Lothaire.

Declan & Regin

Dreams of a Dark Warrior - Kresley Cole

I wasn’t sure what to think of this installment when I had first heard about it. All I could think was “How is Kresley going to pull this off?” Declan is one of the most hated men in the Lore. Who in the right mind could love him… oh, yeah – Regin!

 

We all know, and love, this feisty Valkyrie. And throughout this instalment of the series it’s hard not to love her all the more. The ever cheerful and mischievous female shows us a completely different side to herself in this book. One which will tug at your heart-strings. And make you want to gut Declan slowly! Feed the hatred…

 

However, when Declan’s world changes drastically, he takes to his new life like a champ. He finally realises, and accepts, who he is the male does everything he can to make amends, and win over his love. It kind of makes it impossible for you to him. All in all it makes for a great read.

Malkom & Carrow

Demon From the Dark - Kresley Cole

In this installment the organisation who have been capturing immortals is revealed.  And what a pack of bastards they are! To prevent the demise of her coven, and family, Carrow is forced to capture a rare and deadly Lore creature. One that even the most powerful Lore being fear. Malkom, the half-vampire half-demon abomination. Yet again we are treated to an amazing read. Danger, action, betrayal, and love. I really enjoyed this book. I loved following Malkom as he tried to come to terms with his new world, and the love for a woman who hurt him greatly.

 

I also loved the ending, which I won’t say much about, but it was a flurry of death, revenge, and unwanted alliances.

Garreth & Lucia

Pleasure of a Dark Prince - Kresley Cole

This was another great edition to the IAD series. A true thrill ride. This duo have their fair share of hurt and dark secrets, and it is difficult not to get caught up in their romance. It took me a while to come around to Lucia. I initially found her to be quite selfish, and mean to poor Garreth. Yet as their story progressed and her secrets were revealed my opinion changed quickly.

 

As for the wolf himself – rawwr. Need I say more! I loved how he was determined to win his mate over, even when he was acting like a douchebag. He was protective, attentive, possessive, and Scottish. He literally went to Hell and back for his mate. And in turn, she done the same for him. Another must read book.

Murdoch & Danii

Untouchable - Kresley Cole

This story was somewhat similar to previous installments, and if I were to be honest I was a little disappointed that Murdoch wasn’t the lady-killer I thought him to be. However, it was still enjoyable. Short and sweet, yet packed with enough action and emotional turmoil to make it a hit with me. Murdoch and Danii’s romance was as rocky as everyone else’s, but they do find what they are looking for in the end - with a few added bonuses. It’s worth a read.

Rydstrom & Sabine

Kiss of a Demon King  - Kresley Cole

Such an amazing read! Enemies to lovers. I loved this.

 

In this instalment we meet the Demon King, and brother to Cadeon. Captured and imprisoned by his hated enemy, Rydstrom endures tortures unthinkable to a male like him. Especially as his so-called mate is the one doing it all. Sabine pushes him to the edge of insanity with her sexual wiles. Yet things get all the more interesting though when Rydstrom escapes. Let’s just say, Sabine gets a taste of her own medicine.

 

This story was somewhat similar to previous instalments, and if I were to be honest I was a little disappointed that Murdoch wasn’t the lady-killer I thought him to be. However, it was still enjoyable. Short and sweet, yet packed with enough action and emotional turmoil to make it a hit with me. Murdoch and Danii’s romance was as rocky as everyone else’s, but they do find what they are looking for in the end - with a few added bonuses. It’s worth a read.

Cadeon & Holly

Dark Desires After Dusk  - Kresley Cole

Cadeon *le sigh*

 

Every time I read one of these books I fall in love. This time with a rather crude, yet sexy, Demon prince. Cadeon is one of those characters that you can't help but love. Whenever he acted indifferent toward his fated mate, making him die a little inside each and every time, tugged at my heart-strings. His loyalty is tested throughout the whole book, making it one very emotional whirlwind of a read. Never mind the drastic life-style changes Holly has to over-come. Yet again we meet two fantastic characters struggling to come to terms with the difficulties, and love, thrown their way.

Conrad & Neomi

Dark Needs at Night's Edge - Kresley Cole

I am seriously in love with these Wroth brothers.

This installment of the series was a great read. A twisted romance between a ghost and a crazed vampire. The ups and downs of their relationship, and Conrad’s sanity, kept me roped in till the very end. It was impossible not to fall for these two unfortunate characters. Both with dark pasts and embarrassing secrets. Ones they over-came together. Their story is a true romance, and I hope to see more of them in future books.
