About the Book

Original Publication Date: October 01, 2002

Setting: Modern New Orleans

See how it all began…

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: an accountant. She’s smart, sexy, witty, and wants nothing to do with the paranormal.

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. Now I find myself wanting  to believe that love and loyalty do...

Born prince and heir to Thrace, Kyrian was disinherited when he married an ex-prostitute against his father's wishes.

The Story Behind The Story

At the time Sherri sold the Dark-Hunters, the vampire genre was dead. No one had been writing any that sold in so long that she had to use the word Daimon instead to get the series even looked at by New York.

My how things change...

Sherrilyn started writing the Dark-Hunters in 1986 as urban fantasy short stories. Many of these were published in the SF magazine, Cutting Edge. The first DH novel was completed in 1991.

Night Pleasures was first submitted to a publisher in 1991. It was rejected by every publisher (more than once) in New York, as well as small press publishers and eBook publishers until 1999 when St. Martins finally bought it.

Because there was no market for paranormal at the time Night Pleasures came out, Sherri's editor was terrified of using the word 'vampire' on the back cover. She honestly thought no one would buy a vampire book if they...

you are too good kyrian..and i just love you.

I have just began reading the Dark Hunter Series. Absolutely love the series so far! :) Kyrian & Amanda so far have been my favorite coupling, I just wish when Kyrian regained his soul, he would have stayed Immortal, along w/ Amanda. I hate the idea of him growing old & dying :( He is too yummy & his abilities are very much needed. With Amanda's powers added, the duo as immortals would be unstoppable! :D

Nicole, June 10, 2012

Nicole, Kyrian and Amanda are immortal. When they died in Sieze the Night, they were killed and Acheron brought them back and when he did, they instantly became immortal. Actually most of the couple become immortal such as Talon, Val, Zarek, Kyrian etc.
