Forced to his knees in agony whenever he speaks the truth, Gideon can recognize any lie—until he captures Scarlet, a demon-possessed immortal who claims to be his long-lost wife. He doesn’t remember the beautiful female, much less wedding—or bedding—her.
This is the sixth book in the LOTU main series. This is one of my favourite books in the series. I love Gideon and Scarlett. Gideon speak can be a bit annoying at times as he can’t speak the truth without excruciating pain. Their lives have been entwined long before they were cursed to hold demons, and Scarlett’s version of events is heartbreaking, and her suffering is unimaginable. Gideon has no memory of Scarlett, but he knows through his demon that she isn’t lying. I was rooting for this couple from the very beginning.

I was really looking forward to Gideon’s book too, but I had to put this one down. Perhaps I wasn’t in the right frame of mind, but his thought process about Scarlett felt off. I’m sure I’ll pick it up again at some point, but at the moment it’s back on my shelf as TBR,
