Book #: Book 5 in the Immortals After Dark series
Naomi 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
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.
Yet even if Conrad can win Naomi, 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?
This was a bit of a different book. Naomi is a ghost, and so she cannot touch or be touched by Conrad, which is such a… tease, and a hard thing to witness. I mean, you just want them to be able to bloody hold each other and they can’t! I really loved both characters, but mainly Conrad as he was so twisted and tormented and you just wanted him to get better, so you loved Naomi because she was helping him. Poor Conrad.
You also feel for his brothers, because they are desperately trying to help Conrad but just can’t, then hate them because they don’t believe him about Naomi. I had moments when I grinned like crazy throughout this book, like when Naomi was able to be touched finally (not really a spoiler- you know it’s gonna happen!) and lots of moments of ‘holy crap come on what the hell?’.
Dark needs at night’s edge rating: 9/10. Really great, again. I swear I’ve grown addicted to this series
Would I re-read it? Yuppers. Out of the Wroth brothers, Conrad and Sebastian are currently my favourite, so I’d def read this book again. Loves me some insane Conrad.
Who would I recommend it to? Fans of the series, fans of paranormal romances. This book features a vampire and a ghost, so it’s for fans of these supernatural creatures of the paranormal genre.
