From the first moment I saw him, I knew that Rainer Engel was like no other man. Dangerously sexy and darkly mysterious, he both enticed me and terrified me.

I wanted to run–to fight against the heat that was building between us–but there was nowhere to go. I needed his help as much as I needed his touch. And so help me, I knew that I would do anything he asked in order to have both.

But even as our passion burned hot, the secrets in Raine’s past reached out to destroy us … and we would both have to make the greatest sacrifice to find a love that would last forever.

my thoughts

Let me just start off by saying, I SO needed this book! Caress of Darkness gave me a quick escape from my contemporary erotic norm. I never knew how much I needed some paranormal sexiness in my world until I finished this one up by the incredibly talented Julie Kenner. Die hard fans of authors like Lara Adrian and Kresley Cole will EAT THIS UP! It will satisfy your craving for the paranormal like you wouldn’t believe! There is nothing like being thrust into a world of alternate dimensions, portals, sexy alpha immortals, and blades made of flame.

Caress of Darkness was a great introduction to Ms. Kenner’s Dark Pleasures series. This novella introduced us to so many great characters and gave us insight as to what we should expect from this series. The Phoenix Brotherhood, let’s just say, there are so many great stories that could come out of this group of immortal alpha’s and I can’t wait to devour each and every one of them!

This was a quick read for me, standing at about 80 pages, give or take, but it was also a very fulfilling read for me. Raine and Callie’s love story will leave you breathless and very, very hot. This isn’t just an insta-love romance between two people who just met. Caress of Darkness is a love story that goes back centuries, a love story that knows no bounds, no dimensions, no limits. This is a love story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will love the rush you get when you dive into this new world. Julie Kenner satisfied my paranormal cravings and I guarantee it will satisfy yours as well.

Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances (including the Stark and Most Wanted series) that have reached as high as #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy, Victorian-era thrillers (coming soon), and paranormal mommy lit.

Her foray into the latter, Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner, has been consistently in development in Hollywood since prior to publication. Most recently, it has been optioned by Warner Brothers Television for development as series on the CW Network with Alloy Entertainment producing.

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swopn for him.” A three time finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award, JK took home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me (book 2 of her Stark Trilogy).
