Book Description

On the night lovely Néomi Renate, a famous ballerina at the turn of the century, was murdered, an evil force turned her into a spectre - a phantom that's neither alive nor dead - and cursed her to relive her harrowing death every month during the full moon. Unable to leave her home, she has managed to scare away any trespassers, until she encounters an inhabitant even more terrifying than Néomi herself.
When Conrad Wroth, a vampire warlord who's been half-mad for centuries, first beholds Néomi, he knows nothing will stop him from claiming the ethereal beauty as his own - not even death itself. Yet even if the gruff warrior can win her love and defeat the evil that surrounds her, he still must determine a way to bring her fully back to life, and back to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Immortals After Dark" series book 4 3 Mar. 2009
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Naomi Laress had the world at her feet in the 1920's. Rich, beautiful and a famous ballerina, the only black cloud on her horizon was the jealousy of a spurned lover, a man determined to ensure that she would have no other in her life. The result; a twisted knife in her heart that left Naomi dying at the lavish party she hosted.

80 years later the ghostly Naomi witnesses a savage uncontrollable man brought in chains to her home and soon not only learns of the supernatural creatures of the Lore, the blood thirsty vampire caged in her home can see and hear her. Naomi is delighted; however this vampire Conrad Wroth, already bordering on insanity is convinced if he acknowledges Naomi in any way he will cross the line into true madness.

KC writes highly imaginative paranormal romances and yet again she has created leading lovers who match each other perfectly, disregarding their obvious differences. Conrad is a killer vampire, abhorred by the Lore for drinking his victims dry whilst Naomi is quite simply dead. There appears little future for them; despite their attraction they cannot even touch each other and as the phantom Naomi is unable to "Bloody" Conrad or prove in anyway she is his Bride, Conrad's attraction is purely mental as he is unable to respond physically while his body remains dead to sensation.

KC cleverly overcomes this major obstacle to their potential relationship; however danger continually threatens the pair resulting in a truly absorbing read and she proves that a magical and beautiful blossoming romance does not have to rely heavily on sex. That said, when Naomi and Conrad are able to become intimate; their wait is positively worth it with plenty of red hot action.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Wroth brothers are set out to save the last and final brother who has succumbed to the vampire bloodlust and in no way willing to give it up. Conrad is hell bend on revenge as he was turned in to a vampire without his knowledge at the time. A remote manor is bought for the very occasion of determining if Conrad can be saved or is lost for all eternity. As the Wroth brothers find Conrad it takes all three of them to bind Conrad with magical enforced handcuffs and sedate him as he is brought to this secluded manor.

Néomi was brutally murdered at her manor, Elancourt, in the 1920's and has haunted the place ever since. No one can see her, touch her, hear her and she lives in her small world of her manor. Now four giant men enter her world, stir up her dull routine and trash her beloved place as they try to hold on to a giant mad man. As her anger turns in to rage for their disrespect of her belongings it evaporates just as fast when the mad man says: "beautiful.....woman." He could see her!

Now Néomi visits this man as much as she can and with the drugs leaving his system Conrad gets to meet this vivacious woman that yearns to live again and he discovers a peace with her he never knew could exist. But how can a mad vampire, who can only live again by finding his Bride, fall for a ghost, who can never become a woman of flesh and blood again?

Prepare yourself for a searing paranormal romance story that is out of this world. It never seizes to amaze me how Kresley Cole can take me on this emotionally intense and at times action packed tale. The love that develops between Conrad and Néomi is so profound that it left me breathless, aching for more as I turned the last chapter but yet utterly satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars sheer excellance 30 May 2008
By hazel
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wont detail the storyline as other reviewers have done such a good job! For those who have yet to discover Kresley Cole - her stories are immensly enjoyable. I have read every single one of her books (including the historical novels) and have found her to be consistently good. I would recommend in particular her 'Immortals after Dark' series and the 'If You' series .

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing twist of roles for the couple 4 Dec. 2012
By Nurrie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite book of the series. I like how the male isn't as aggressive towards the female as the other males from the series, mainly because that won't work with this girl since she's a ghost and can't be forced to do anything. Everything that happens is her leading the way, instead of the other way around. The other books in this series, the female is the virginal maiden and the male is the experienced lover, but in this book the roles are twisted here. Which I found a refreshing change. The build up is also slower since there are a lot of obstacles preventing the couple exploring each other, the writer had to rely on creating deeper, more interesting characters.

Won't say anymore, but this is a refreshing book out of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ghostly dancer 25 April 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Neomi Laress was a famous ballerina with a sensual past who was tragically murdered in the 1920s. Since then she has haunted her mansion, waiting for something interesting to happen. Conrad Wroth is a vampire warrior consumed by madness. Turned against his will, Conrad began to drink his victims to death trapping their memories in his head. Now lost as to which thoughts are his own, his brothers lock him in a seemingly abandoned mansion to try to save him. But when Conrad sees Neomi, both begin down a path that leads to darkness...

This is the fourth book in the Immortals after Dark series (after Hunger Like No Other, No Rest for the Wicked and Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night) and is the first not to deal mainly with Lykae or valkyrie. Conrad is one of the Wroth brothers (Sebastian's story was book 2, and Nikolai's story was told in a novella in Playing Easy to Get set before the first novel) turned against his will to be a vampire. The twist with Conrad that makes him different to Sebastian is that Conrad had already joined a group of mortal vampire hunters and spent years killing vampires only to become one.

The other unique twist to the book is that Neomi is a ghost. Only Conrad can see her, but he has no idea whether she is truly real or just a figment of his tortured mind. I must say a romance where the characters can't actually touch or interact physically was definitely new to me and interestingly written.
