The Warlord Wants Forever…the sensually charged novella that started it all, now with an exclusive excerpt from MacRieve!

In this scorching series opener, #1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces the captivating Immortals After Dark series. The eBook also includes an exclusive extended excerpt from MacRieve, the highly anticipated next installment in the series.

The Warlord

Nikolai Wroth, a ruthless vampire general, will stop at nothing to find his Bride, the one woman who can “blood” him, making his heart beat and filling him with strength. Coldly interested only in the power his Bride will bring, he can hardly believe when Myst the Coveted awakens him body—and soul.

The Seductress

Famed throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, Myst has devoted her life to protecting a magical jewel and to fighting the vampires.Wroth provides her with the perfect opportunity to torment her sworn enemy—for with his new heartbeat comes a consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her. Denying him, she flees, struggling to forget his searing, possessive kiss.

The Hunt is on…

She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen her enchanted jewel, giving him absolute power over her. Now that she’s his for the taking, he intends to make her experience first-hand the agonizing, unending lust she subjected him to for half a decade.Yet when Nikolai realizes he wants far more than vengeance from Myst and frees her, will she come back to him?

Good little introduction story to the series.  I’ve been waiting to read this series for so long and am finally giving it a shot. The Warlord Wants Forever introduces Nikolai Wroth, a general in the rebel vampire army, and Myst, a Valkyrie. Nikolai has been searching for his Bride, the one who will make him strong again, and he’s finally found her…

I’m not usually a fan of paranormal romance in general but I’ve heard great things about this series and this short story gave me a good idea whether I would enjoy the remaining books or not. It did come off as being a bit rushed and would have benefited by being a full length novel but I’m looking forward to continuing reading the Immortals After Dark series and getting into the actual novels.
