See how it all began...
Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power?
That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of it.
Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: an accountant. She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal.
My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Now I find myself wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.
Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any way a woman can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.
Kyrian of Thrace
is a good debut for the Dark-Hunter
series, but leaves a few things to be desired.
It's a light fun read I enjoyed to a degree, but before I began writing this review I read six more books. And you know what? I can barely remember Night Pleasures
after the others.
I mean great books stay seared in my memory for a long time. Night Pleasures
was more of a temporary satisfaction.
What I remember most, is the (naturally) sexy hero and the plain Jane for the heroine. The type of formula that is not only overused, but also unreal. I guess it is done for all the Janes in the world to sleep better at night dreaming about gorgeous men, who are not only filthy rich, but perfect in every way possible.
Despite the cliché, or the fact that it didn't have strong effect on me, it helped to pass a few boring hours and gave the opportunity to learn about Dark-Hunter
world. The world that is only starting to develop and has great potential.
