Installment 1 in the
Immortals After Dark Series: The Dacians

#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians, a new paranormal romance collection following the royal bloodline of Dacia, a vampire kingdom hidden within the Lore of the Immortals After Dark.




Shadow's Claim features Prince Trehan, a ruthless master assassin who will do anything to possess Bettina, his beautiful Sorceress mate, even compete for her hand in a blood-sport tournament—to the death.

HE WON'T BE DENIED

Trehan Daciano, known as the Prince of Shadows, has spent his life serving his people, striking in the night, quietly executing any threat to their realm. The coldly disciplined swordsman has never desired anything for himself—until he beholds Bettina, the sheltered ward of two of the Lore's most fearsome villains.


SHE'S BOUND TO ANOTHER

 

Desperate to earn her guardians' approval after a life-shattering mistake, young Bettina has no choice but to marry whichever suitor prevails—even though she's lost her heart to another. Yet one lethal competitor, a mysterious cloaked swordsman, invades her dreams, tempting her with forbidden pleasure.


A BATTLE FOR HER BODY AND SOUL

Even if Trehan can survive the punishing contests to claim her as his wife, the true battle for Bettina's heart is yet to come. And unleashing a millennium's worth of savage need will either frighten his Bride away—or stoke Bettina's own desires to a fever-pitch....

  2. I like autumn nights because it`s getting colder and it just forces you to cuddle under the blanket either with a good book or your bf.
    Thanks!

    Though I wouldn't mind a hot naked scottish highlander in bed. Rawr! Especially if he has knotworks tattooed on him so I can follow with my tongue. OOps.

    Okay my ideal autumn night. Well depends.. I do like to cuddle up with my dachies when the boys are asleep (hubby at work) reading... also to write while all the distractions are done, occasionally chatting with the friends that really care.

      Mmm I am a motorcycle snob so it has to be a Harley. Why I like Julie Ann Walker books so much! Tatts, long hair, piercing. Oh yeah.

      Yeah my dachies do that. Rock slept at my feet and they were nice and toasty

    2. Actually I three and they all want on my lap. I have three recused dogs. Two Chiweeines and a Bison. Abby is the littles and she loves to cuddle. Cecil is the oldest and likes to sleep with me, but he get gumpy. The youngest is Beauregard. I call him BoBo for short cause he's silly. Example he doesn't know how to get into the car. I have lift him. I have stair beside my bed for the little dog. And he gets confused on how to climb them. Its funny to watch. Don't tell Abby, but BoBo is my favorite.

    3. Mary Frances 3 is a LOT, lol. I would love to have more, but Maggie is all I can handle at the moment. We rescued her from a family that wasn't prepared to take care of a dog and she was infested with fleas--UGH! They didn't take very good care of her. Although we weren' ready to tackle on a new pet, she was already potty trained :) Love your dogs names--esp BoBo. Too cute.
      Hope you are enjoying the hop and have a wonderful holiday season!

  21. Autumn is my fave time of the year. Since I don't care for summer, the cool, crisp days suit me fine. A good book can always be a great cuddle buddiy however I enjoy cuddling with my hubby near a bonfire. With both our lives so crazy busy with jobs and 6 kids its nice to just snuggle, enjoy s'mores, and unwind by the warm fire.
