Hello dear friends, happy first Friday of December. It’s shopping season! This was my most dreaded time when I worked in retail. I bare it no ill will now though, thank goodness. It’s so wonderful to be able to enjoy the Christmas season again even though things seem to be getting a little bit….. scary again. I don’t like to mention the pandemic on here but this new variant has me feeling like the beginning of it all again. My parents are even in Spain again. They’re thinking of staying in Spain until after the influx of travel at Christmas which is understandable but it will make for a very strange Christmas.
Anyway, we don’t need to discuss Christmas or the pandemic, we’re here for books! At the moment I’m rereading Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series in anticipation of the next release, Munro. The book is due for release in January so I won’t be caught up but I’m not rereading in order so it doesn’t really matter. I just want to read to where Munro is introduced anyway. I am so freaking excited for this release and have applied to be on Cole’s ARC team so fingers crossed. That would mean I get to read the book that bit sooner and I would get my hands on the next Arcana Chronicles book earlier as well. I will admit, I have been going a little bit crazy wanting to find out what’s going to happen to those guys.
At the moment, I am very much enjoying rereading Dark Needs at Night’s Edge. This was probably my least favourite of the Wroth brothers stories on my first read of the series but I find I’m enjoying it more now. I feel more sympathy towards Conrad than I originally did and enjoy Néomi’s antics more as well. Forced proximity romances usually annoy me which is probably why I didn’t enjoy this as much before but now it’s suiting my humour quite nicely. This book has a more gothic feel to it with Néomi’s house, her compulsion to dance an eerie ballet every month and the fact that she’s a ghost making it a perfect read for winter.

Dark Needs at Night’s Edge by Kresley Cole
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Kresley Cole continues her seductive and “devilishly passionate” (RT Book Reviews) Immortals After Dark series with this tale of a vampire shunned by his own kind and a beautiful phantom, bound together by a passion they cannot resist.
Néomi 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 Néomi herself.
To prevent him from harming others, vampire warrior 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.
Yet even if Conrad can win Néomi, 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?
