Publisher: Harlequin HQN

Length: 432 pages

My Rating: 5 stars


Possessed by the demon of Misery, Cameo isn’t allowed to experience joy. If she dares, her memory is wiped clean. With no other recourse, she sneaks into a land more fantastical than any fairy tale, determined to find the one man with the key to her redemption.

Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual rules his kingdom with a single unwavering focus: to build his army and annihilate his enemies. Nothing distracts him – until Cameo. He is relentless in his quest to make her smile and seduce her into his bed.

As dark forces conspire against them, threatening to destroy the fragile bond they’ve forged, the once-calm Lazarus grows crazed. Every heart-stopping kiss and wicked touch causes Cameo to teeter on the brink of happiness. But if she falls, she risks forgetting him forever 

My Review: 

I’m so happy Cameo gets a happily ever after. To be possessed by the demon of misery is a complete torture and how she kept going is a mystery to me. For me it is one of the best and strongest stories in the series. I am in love. I was salivating when we had our first taste of Cameo and Lazarus a few books back and their story is amazing.

The added bonus of Viola and the twins Urban and Ever is amazing. Urban is so cute with his devotion to Viola.
