From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole, an electrifying standalone tale of a ruthless demon mercenary and the lovely young halfling who enchants him, set in the Immortals After Dark universe.

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.

A tormented warrior she should fear, but can’t deny...

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.

Surrender to dark desires...

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?

    This book is my absolutely favorite in the series so far. The character development was wonderful to read. You become invested in the characters. And the HEA was so sweet! 5+ stars.

    As a die-hard fan from the first book of the IAD series, I have to say that hands down, this is my all time favorite book of them all. I've read and re-read this book so many times, the pages are falling completely out!! I love Cade & Holly's story - the way Kresley Cole develops these characters is just outstanding and will really leave you unable to put the book down!!! Even after reading it probably 20 times I still find myself engrossed in their adventure!!! Great Book, Excellent Series!!!!!

    I was sold on her books from first chapter. Her works are fabulous and I am an avid reader. I am loyal to certain writers and she is the second author I fell in love with when it came to the reading. These are a must have for your best friends.
  • 3.5 stars...

    As a fan of the IAD series I'd give this about 3.5 stars out of 5. The characters are uneven at times and the story drags at a a few key points. That being said, I still enjoy her books thoroughly and look forward to the next in the series. Always entertaining!
