Book - Darkest Pleasure

The Darkest Pleasure (Lords of the Underworld, Book 3)… by Gena Showalter
Book 3 continues the search for the ancient artifacts that will lead to finding Pandora's Box. Reyes, Keeper of Pain becomes distracted from that quest after finding out that Danika Ford the women that had haunted him waking and asleep for several months now, has been kidnapped by the Hunters. She did not know she was being followed by those that claimed to be the good guys, she only knew that she had been put in another terrible situation and would do anything to ensure her and her families safety. The Hunters had offered her that protection, all she had to do was spy on the Lords of the Underworld. Returning to the fortress in Budapest had been a scary thought, with Aeron, Keeper of Wrath, out to kill her and her family, and then there was Reyes, he bothered her in a completely different way. Spending time with these demons, she started to realize that something just didn't feel right about what she was suppose to do. With desire running through her, she trusted these demons with the truth and could only dream for the best.

I am addicted to this series, the struggles of these wonderful characters keep me wanting more. The emotions of the characters radiate the depths of each warrior and demon, the conflicts, the similarities and the compromises that must be met. The description of each battle, argument, discussion and love scene is so precise it is easy to conjure in the minds eye. I felt the pull as Reyes flew to the heavens and the sorrow of Pain himself when she was gone. To have the written ability to make a person crave to know these warriors and demons alike is a wonderful gift, I am excited to know there are more to this series, it was left so undone. I wait for more of these beautifully tortured and tempting Lords of the Underworld.
