Life is tough these days for Lydia Smith, licensed para-archaeologist. Seriously stressed-out from a nasty incident in an alien tomb, she is obliged to work in Shrimpton’s House of Ancient Horrors, a very low-budget museum. She has a plan to get her career back on track, but it isn’t going well. Stuff keeps happening. Take the dead body that she discovered in the sarcophagus exhibit. Who needed that? Finding out that her new client, Emmett London, is one of the most dangerous men in the city isn’t helping matters either. And that’s just today’s list of setbacks. Here in the shadows of the Dead City of Old Cadence, things don’t really heat up until After Dark.

My Thoughts

Discover a whole new world where dust bunnies are actually cool pets, Ghost Hunters are actually very powerful and very sexy men, and love is found in the most unlikely of places.

The author creates a mesmerizing world that readers will want to get lost in over and over again. Very well written with beautiful imagery “After Dark” is a must have for any romance lovers shelf. The intrigue and romance are plentiful in this story and they had me greedily turning each page.

Lydia is an independent woman trying to get her career back on track, but luck just isn’t on her side when she finds a dead body in the sarcophagus exhibit. Lydia is a fun character to read about she has real depth making it very easy to relate to her. Emmett is a very charismatic yet headstrong man who would most probably be the center piece of many a woman’s dreams. The minute these two meet the sparks fly.
 Readers will enjoy following along with these two as they get themselves into loads of trouble and try to understand the growing attraction to each other in the process.
