Gideon has been wrapped in silver chains and locked up for years with his blood being drained by a witch intent on maintaining her (false) youthful beauty. He is kept almost starved and in agony so that when “dinner” is thrown into his cell he is unable to resist draining the life from the helpless women who are as much prisoners as he is. His latest dinner, however, is different. Her blood tastes funny and her defiance amuses him. He soon learns her secret, but there are more yet to discover. Kay’s greatest secret, however, is that even if she and Gideon are able to somehow escape, she faces an even greater threat. She may find freedom when she is in Gideon’s arms, but her future holds only chains of duty and family.
Amanda Ashley has written yet another spellbinding love story that delights the senses, fires the imagination and has enough twists and turns to elicit gasps. The characters are strong and vulnerable, the challenges seem overwhelming, and love barely wins the day. Desire the Night is a highly engaging and enjoyable read – perfect for a cozy, cold winter’s day or a lazy afternoon in the warm sun.
