Well I don't know where to start. I enjoyed this book. It was romance through and through. The problem that I had was that I had gone out and picked up the two books that preceded this one since I am anal about reading books in order. I really enjoyed both of themâ'Shades of Gray' & 'After Sundown'. While those two books were very much tied together and had wonderful characters, this book, which is very loosely tied to the first two and could be read as a stand alone, had characters that to me were not as interesting. The plot also was pretty much the same as the previous two books, but with new characters, so it was like reading the same story over again, but with the names changed.

Don't get me wrong. If I run across any more of Amanda Ashley's books I will probably read them. They are good romances. But I probably won't actively seek them out as I understand that most of them are just the same plot, different characters. While the plot was great the first time around with 'Shades of Gray' and still interesting since the characters were really likeable in 'After Sundown', by the time I got to 'Desire After Dark', I had had my fill.

There were several elements to the story that just did not make sense. One example is when Vicki is going to rescue Antonio from Falco. She just so happens to run into a guy who not only sells her a gun but spends an hour training her to shoot it. While they are in an empty lot practicing they just so happen to run into a group of 4, what I would describe as hoodlums, who volunteer to go with Vicki and help her out. They don't know her, have no clue what she is going to do, but they go along for the ride. Pretty far fetched. There are a few instances like that where you just go, wait a minute, what is going on here! But put that aside and the story is okay. Lady Katherine is a fun character and we do get to revisit Edward Ramsey a bit. Worth an afternoon to read, but nothing fantastic~

Exciting set-up, mediocre writing, one-dimensional characters.

This was the first Amanda Ashley book for me. It was okay. Antonio is a handsome hunk of a vampire, but a little to whimpy and sensitive for my taste. (No pun intended). Victoria is a flake most of the time. Maybe that is because she is so young. Overall I thought the story and the characters were rather shallow.

Totally trite and boring. The characters have all the sexual chemistry of a banana. No wait, a banana is at least suggestive. A potato then, perhaps? All in all, totally craptastic.
