My next featured book is one of my favorites. Dark Needs At Night's Edge by Kresley Cole is book four in her Immortals After Dark series. This book epitomizes everything about Halloween. The hero is a vampire and the heroine is a ghost. Here's what the dust jacket has to say about the story:
A Raven-Haired Temptress Of The Dark: Neomi Laress, a famous ballerina from a past century, became a phantom the night she was murdered. Imbued with otherworldly powers but invisible to the living, she haunts her beloved home, scaring away trespassers-until she encounters a ruthless immortal even more terrifying than Neomi herself.
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 Neomi, 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?
I love all five books thus far in this series but this one, Dark Needs At Night's Edge is my favorite. I love Conrad and Neomi is fantastic. Years of boredom at not being seen have caused Neomi to develop a few bad habits. She likes to pickpocket from unsuspecting mortals. And Conrad's insanity caused by drinking blood until he kills has left him with a cruel streak. He often takes his rage out on Neomi.
But when Neomi's ghostly life is threatened with complete and total destruction, Conrad's fierce and cruel tendencies are the only things that may save her. Dark Needs At Night's Edge by Kresley Cole is currently out and available. Click on the link I have up for her if you'd like to check out any of her books.
Tomorrow my Mom, Lin, author of Lin's Blog, will be here guest blogging about Halloween so make sure you come back for that. I will have the next Fright Month installment for you on Monday. Until then, Happy Haunting!
