Night Pleasures

(Kyrian & Amanda)

Dear Reader,

Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal?  To journey through the night stalking vampires that prey on humans?  To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power?  That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous.  I play hero to thousands, but am know to none.  And I love every minute of it.

Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare:  a conservative woman in a button-down shirt.  Or in Amanda's case, one buttoned all the way up to her chin.  She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal - in other words, me.

My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for.  Not to mention the last time I feel in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul.  Yet every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try again.  Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.

Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.

Kyrian of Thrace



Here you'll find all the juicy tidbits you learned from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Night Pleasures, this includes important dates, details, and character interactions.  My hope is that these pages and the subsequent ones from other novels and short stories will paint a clear and detailed "family history" and timeline of the Dark-Hunter world!  If you have additional details to add or corrections you noted feel free to email us and we'll add/fix them!  Enjoy!
