Bowen MacRieve of the Lykae clan was devastated when he tragically lost his mate. Already known as a ruthless warrior, Bowen grew considerably colder in his dealings with Lore beings. He shunned the tender touch of many beautiful Lore women vowing not to take another to his bed unless she was his lost mate. In a bid to win a talisman that would reunite him with his love, Bowen competes in the Hie, the Lore version of the Amazing Race only deadlier. There he comes face to face with Mariketa the Awaited, his competitor and the woman who awakens the dormant desire in him that only his dead mate could. And he is not happy about it.
Mari has no idea what destiny lies before her but she is certain it is something big, world altering big. While she waits for fate to send her a shout-out, Mari intends to prove to herself and others, that she can control her awesome powers. The hot Lykae warrior she cursed, and the other supernatural creatures doing their best to kill her the situation has become challenging. To survive Mari is going to need a hunky champion who can take a licking and...um, you know the rest. Falling for the stubborn beast wasnít on the agenda.
Kresley Cole's wildly imaginative Immortals After Dark series continues with Wicked Deeds on a Winterís Night. Bowen gets his shot at happily-ever-after in this engaging romance. I couldnít put this book down. Bowen and Mari are two of Kresleyís most interesting characters. I was drawn into their story and didnít want to leave their compelling world.
