|Do you love the Dark Ones? I know I do. In this latest Dark Ones novel, Katie Macalister brings us the story of Iolanthe and Nikola. Nikola has lived as a Dark One for many long years. He is dark and sexy and I loved him from the start. Iolanthe is able to manipulate time and soon finds herself traveling back in time to Nikola. Can the past and the future come together in the present? What will the consequences be? Nikola and Iolanthe may come from two different worlds but the spark that pulls them together burns brighter with each moment that they are together.
I am a big fan of this author and series and was excited to read this latest book. I loved watching the interaction between Iolanthe and Nikola. As with her other books, this one was full of humor. Right from the start, this book had me laughing. Nikola does not know what to make of the loud and opinionated woman who has mysteriously arrived in the road he travels. I loved the banter between the two. Nikola is a hoot especially when he tries to use modern day language. Iolanthe is an independent woman who takes everything that is thrown at her. Watching the relationship develop between the two was a nice read. As the two try to figure out their feelings and where to go with them they must also deal with Rolf. The only thing Rolf's meddling seems to succeed in is bringing the two together and cementing their love. I loved seeing Nikola in the present time, especially when a woman offered to allow him to look at her vehicle and he tries to placate Iolanthe about the difference in their looks. I truly enjoyed this read and was pulled into their world right from the start and found myself glued to my seat and turning those pages to see what would happen next with these two.
