The worst moment of Micah’s life was when Ella nearly died in his arms. Her miraculous recovery should have been the start of their future. Unfortunately, a new demonic heritage, the Shadow Agency’s corruption and Julian, the vampire who turned Ella, are testing their relationship. Despite hotter-than-ever sex and a variety of new places and positions to explore, Micah begins to wonder if a relationship based on lust can survive for more than a few scorching-hot months.

Ella has forgiven, but not forgotten, the fact that Micah once plunged a dagger through her heart. Everything with Micah is passion, excitement and an uncontrollable desire to explore his body in a variety of very satisfying ways. But as buried secrets, ongoing lies and murderous deceptions pile up, Ella is reminded that she and Micah’s relationship was based on a curse. In order to forge a future together, Ella and Micah will have to face down their personal demons—and prove that love and trust are more than just words.

My Review

Firstly I want to thank Madeline for kindly providing me with a copy of “Dark Secrets” to read and review for this blog tour.

Things will no longer be the same for Micah & Ella as she is now the Vampire Queen and the Shadow Agency are after her for a crime she didn’t commit, they think she bit a human….little do they know that Micah isn’t a human….he’s far from it…he’s a fricking HOT ASS demon!!!!!!

This guy is sexy as hell, the sex scenes between him & Ella just keep getting raunchier and raunchier as his demon side is coming to the surface…

Julian is up to his wicked ways also….after Micah made a deal with him when he saved Ella’s life she has to be by his side for functions and balls…..will he win her heart back?

Will she cave into his love again?

We thought things were going to well for everyone, until Micah learns the truth of his parents….all isn’t as it would seem, lies have been told, secrets have been kept and things between Ella & Micah are strained because of the secrets…..

When a tragedy occurs and Micah is no where to be found, Ella turns to the one who is there for her, the one who professes his undying love for her….Julian…

There are lots of twists and turns in this story, there’s love and laughter, but pain and torture too.

I LOVED the psycho Ella, yes, she needs to be more like this in the next book….maybe Pryce will make her….after all she is the Vampire Queen…

What will happen now between Micah and Ella?

Will she be the Vampire Queen she’s meant to be?

Will Micah’s demon side continue to push to the forefront?

Will Eli get his HEA?

Ella Grey’s life sucks. A half-breed vampire, she does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He’s hot, dangerous and knows it. He’d be just Ella’s type if he weren’t likely to kill her the moment she put a toe out of line.

A chance encounter with a succubus changes everything. From the second the succubus’ spell washes over them, Ella and Micah are helpless to keep their hands off one another. The sex, when it’s not leaving them on the verge of death, is earth shattering and for the first time in ages Ella is connected with someone on a level she’d feared lost forever. But a dangerous prophecy has been set into motion, and if Ella’s not careful it’ll pull her straight from Micah’s arms and into the deepest bowels of the underworld.
