Gideon has been enslaved by a witch for several years. He is given human women to drain and the witch will then take his blood which keeps her body young. Gideon is desperate to escape and will soon find it possible with the next woman who is thrown into his cage.
Kay Alissano had no idea where she was when she woke up in a strange room. She will find herself trapped with a vampire and soon realize that she is his next meal but will soon find that with Gideon she will not have to forfeit her life.
Desire the Night was an impulse pick up as I walked the aisle of the library. I decided to give Amanda Ashley a try and found that it was a good book. It wasn’t mind blowing with tons of action or sex but it was a satisfying sit down book that I read pretty quickly. The plot was quick and the characters were easy to follow along with and you knew which ones to hate and to cheer for.
I found myself though asking is this going too fast? Should there be more detail with the characters especially the love that blossoms almost instantly without any supernatural help between Gideon and Kay. It’s a little unbelievable but still there are good transitions through the book.
What I did find annoying was the role of the father, the Alpha werewolf of Kay. He was way too dominating with his wife and daughter. He was a character you didn’t really like but didn’t hate either. The mother was the tragic one and at the end you were glad that at least she found a way out of her own hell even if it was a tragic way.
Now even though I found the father annoying I have a feeling I will be reading more from Amanda Ashley in the future.
