Sometimes the only choice you have is to surrender.
Cade is a fallen angel who still endeavors to follow the right path. That is until the angels’ new ruling body decide the warrior is the perfect match to carry out their new assignment. Schooling the young, snobbish Abagail in the art of demon fighting is a challenge he could do without.
When Abagail is finally summoned by the Tribunal, she is beyond eager to finally take her place among the angels. She already has her eye on an elite warrior for her mate. But when the nephilim is thrust into a mission with a fallen angel, she goes from thrilled to mortified.
Like oil and water, the two are constantly at odds with each other, but Cade can’t deny the attraction building for the aloof nephilim. As their mission draws to a close, Cade realizes Abby will walk out of his life and into the arms of another, unless he can convince her to surrender to one night of passion.

With each book I read in this series, I say this was my favorite. Then the next one comes out and I love it even more. Ms. Twombly has created such vivid world you get lost in it.

A sinful tale of good versus evil, and the horrors that lie where you least expect them…
Valerie Twombly has created another incredible tale within the world of the Eternal Mates. In Surrender to Darkness, the fifth installment in the series, we get a front row seat on the roller coaster that is Cade and Abigail. As a fallen angel with more soul than darkness, Cade still believes in the good in the world and wants nothing more than to preserve it. When he is tasked by the Tribunal to train a young, spoiled nephilim in the art of demon fighting, he is less than thrilled. When his new trainee turns out to be more of a challenge than fighting a demon horde, the tension grows hot…and something more than animosity flares.
Abigail has lived a pampered and indulgent existence all of her life, and expects nothing less when she comes of age and is called to take her place among the angels. Abigail’s expectations take a nosedive when her first mission is to train with a fallen angel warrior that is as sexy as he is untamed. Determined to get through this horrid ordeal and marry an Elite warrior worthy of her status, Abigail tries to put Cade out of her mind and concentrate on her training. The problem is, Cade is showing he has more sides to his rough demeanor, and Abigail finds herself drawn to him. Worse yet, a shocking development makes her realize that she’s never felt safer than she does with Cade.
Another winner from Ms. Twombly, Surrender to Darkness delivers all the elements her fans have come to crave from her. With a super sexy fallen angel as the hero, and a heroine that can be a little tough to like, this book has it all! An unwanted chemistry and desire that pulls between two unlikely souls, there was a slow burn to this story that kept you reading just to see what would transpire between them next. A great storyline within the Eternal Mates series, with long beloved characters making their appearances, Surrender to Darkness was an incredible addition to the series. I absolutely adore the worlds that Ms. Twombly creates for us, and can’t wait to see what comes next.
It just keeps getting better -
I was left with so many questions after book 4 - where is the son? Is there going to be retaliation? Who is next? We found the son and he is absolutely nothing like I had depicted (I even kind of like him) and we have a new evil which I did not see coming ,running amuck- and a few characters were dealt a hand that held it's own karmic justice -so much action and reaction packed in this one!
This is Cade's story I can say with all honesty - strap your self in because you are in for one "hell" of a good time - Cade is to train Abby for the tribunal - Abby is an aristocrat who is under the assumption her wings are white and all others are beneath her - There is nothing but attitude, snark and some serious heat between these two
I read a complimentary copy of this book
