Sweet sassy molassy, there's a huge Sherrilyn Kenyon sale going on! Over 20 books are $3.99 at pretty much every vendor and $3.79 at Amazon. Gird your loins…I mean wallets.
Night Pleasures is $3.99, and is book 2 in the Dark Hunter Series. The book that started it all is Fantasy Lover – it is not on sale, but it's available for around $7.00. This book holds a special place in my heart as Kenyon was the first paranormal romance author I read. My mom had all the Dark Hunter books in a giant tub in our shed. Though this is one of the earlier books in Kenyon's series, many readers (myself included) insist the series gets better as they progress. It has a 4.2-star rating on GR.
Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to be immortal? To journey through the night stalking the evil that preys on humans? To have unlimited wealth, unlimited power?
That is my existence, and it is dark and dangerous. I play hero to thousands, but am known to none. And I love every minute of it.
Or so I thought until one night when I woke up handcuffed to my worst nightmare: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. Or in Amanda's case, buttoned all the way up to her chin. She's smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal-in other words, me.
My attraction to Amanda Devereaux goes against everything I stand for. Not to mention the last time I fell in love it cost me not only my human life, but also my very soul. Yet every time I look at her, I find myself wanting to try again. Wanting to believe that love and loyalty do exist.
Even more disturbing, I find myself wondering if there's any way a woman like Amanda can love a man whose battle scars run deep, and whose heart was damaged by a betrayal so savage that he's not sure it will ever beat again.

Night Embrace is book #3 in the Dark Hunter series and is $3.99. Our hero is a badass Celtic warrior with a artist, pseudo-hippie heroine named Sunshine. I consider her adorably crazy. Readers had mixed feelings on how early sex occures in the book, but it still has a 4.2-star rating on GR.
Life is great for me. I have my chicory coffee, my warm beignets, and my best friend on the cell phone. Once the sun goes down, I am the baddest thing prowling the night: I command the elements, and I know no fear.
For centuries, I've protected the innocent and watched over the mankind, making sure they are safe in a world where nothing is ever certain. All I want in return is a hot babe in a red dress, who wants nothing more from me then one night.
Instead, I get a runaway Mardi Gras float that tries to turn me into roadkill and a beautiful woman who saves my life but can't remember where she put my pants. Flamboyant and extravagant, Sunshine Runningwolf should be the perfect woman for me. She wants nothing past tonight, no ties, no long-term commitments.
But every time I look at her, I start yearning for dreams that I buried centuries ago. With her unconventional ways and ability to baffle me, Sunshine is the one person I find myself needing. But for me to love her would mean her death.
I am cursed never to know peace or happiness— not so long as my enemy waits in the night to destroy us both.

Dance with the Devil is book #4 in the Dark Hunter series. It's also $3.99. This one is probably one of my favorites, though I have a hard time keeping track of the series' offshoots with the Were-Hunter and Dream Hunter series. Our blind heroine is sent to judge and condemn our bad boy hero. Readers felt this book was a bit more romantic that the previous ones, but this is where the books and characters (in my opinion) start to intertwine, making it impossible to read them as standalone novels. It has a 4.3-star rating on GR
Zarek's Point of View:
Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude.
Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it.
Trust: I can't trust anyone…not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.
Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.
Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved.
But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?
Acheron is also on sale for $3.99. There's some debate as to what number this is in the series. Amazon says it's 12, while GoodReads has two conflicting numbers, 9 and 15. Either way, this book is a little farther down the line in the series, but features probably the most favorite character in the series. A few readers felt Acheron's story was pretty over the top, but most deemed the book worth the wait. It has an impressive 4.6-star rating on GR.
Eleven thousand years ago a god was born. Cursed into the body of a human, Acheron spent a lifetime of shame. However, his human death unleashed an unspeakable horror that almost destroyed the earth. Then, brought back against his will, Acheron became the sole defender of mankind.
Only it was never that simple. For centuries, he has fought for our survival and hidden a past he’ll do anything to keep concealed. Until a lone woman who refuses to be intimidated by him threatens his very existence.
Now his survival, and ours, hinges on hers and old enemies reawaken and unite to kill them both.
War has never been more deadly… or more fun.
