His powers—Inhuman…

His passion—Beyond immortal…

All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she’ll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member—a man trapped in a hell of his own.

Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments… and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction—and a soul-shattering test of love…

Though they carry an eternal curse, the Lords of the Underworld are irresistibly seductive—and unimaginably powerful…

My Review:

I love Greek Myth and am a huge fan of paranormal romance, finding this series several years ago was fantastic. Each story is well crafted, the characters are engaging, the world-building is amazing, and the sex is steamy.

everyone love a tortured hero, and in this book, we have Maddox, a man who pays every night for one mistake. (it was a pretty big one) Ashlyn has also suffered, and together they are incredibly compelling. a fitting start to a great story.

  1. Lords of the Underworld is one of the series I want to finish this year – although there are loads of books and more coming so I’m not sure how far I’ll get but I’ve read the first half a dozen already. Glad you enjoyed this one too.
