"The Darkest Kiss" is a Sexy and Dark Pleasure!


She has tempted many men… but never found her equal.
Until now.

Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death—a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining.…

Lucien: dark, sexy, and tormented.. Sounds like the perfect man, right ladies? Oh, wait, one more thing... He's the Keeper of Death, the demon. But no worries-- he's still delicious and dangerously wicked! And the demon? If you're the lucky women who will be his soul mate, aka Anya, then the demon will even purr for you during certain.. intimate moments.

Really, based on that little bit of information alone, who wouldn't want to read this story, or Showalter's other Lords of the Underworld Series? This book, like always, has wit and adventure, suspense and myth, hard, hot, steamy sex and heart-wrenching teary moments. A perfect combination, flawlessly combined by Showalter, that will grab your attention and leave you wanting more from these sexy, tormented alpha male/demon warriors, labeled Lords of the Underworld.

4.5/5 STARS! Yet another great read by Showalter, this time adding in a new element-- gods and demons to the already smokin' hot romances! I swear, everytime I pick up one of her books they just keep getting, impossible as it may seem, better and better! A definite 'must read' for any romance lover! I can't wait for Paris' story though.... We got a glimace of his fated mate in this book *In a veeeery hot scene, of course!*, but then Showalter turned an unexpected corner in the story and I'm not sure how his book will turn out... Always a good thing, I guess, leaving the readers wondering, waiting for the next book! :)
