Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of Pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. Yet he craves a mortal woman, Danika Ford, more than breath and will do anything to claim her—even defy the gods. Danika is on the run. For months she’s eluded the Lords of the Underworld, immortal warriors who won’t rest until she and her family have been destroyed. But her dreams are haunted by Reyes, the warrior whose searing touch she can’t forget. Yet a future together could mean death to all they both hold dear…
This is the third book in the series, and while each book features a new couple the series needs to be read in order as the characters and plot are deeply entwined, and the story evolves with each book.
The main couple in this instalment Reyes and Danika, are so compatible and they bring the best out of each other. Reyes, while possessed with the demon of Pain, is so tender and sweet with Danika. The sex is hot and steamy, and while you would think given Pain it would lean heavily towards BDSM it doesn’t.
This book introduces us to new characters that will play essential roles in the future. We also learn more of Chronos motivation in using the Lords of the Underworld. This series just keeps getting better. well worth a read.
