Publisher's Summary

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 that 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.

Tortured and Sexy

OK,folks,listen up... the genre reviewed here is Romance, specifically Paranormal Romance. The hero/heroine interact wonderfully because they both are internally tortured by their own personally unresolvable problems, but that are satisfied both personally and sexually in each other. If you would be at all familiar with the concept, Romance frequent has the concept of 'destiny' in it,as in foredestined mating, and that concept comes across beautifully in this novel and audiobook.The action to bring this mating to its fruition comes in fits and starts, as a good novel should have, knowing that these characters are coming together, but how? and when? Also the interaction of the myriad cast of characters keeps the pace going well(I don't know how Gena keeps track of them all!) As for the narrator, Max Belmore, I was sold almost immediately with his sweet,sexy voice, delightfully male. It is no mean feat to tone one's voice to approximate different character traits...yeah, go ahead,you try it! So, kudos to a beautiful, dark, tortured, sexy tale. The sequels are delicious, too. Plan to keep comin' back for more. Luv ya, Gena and Max!

Keep Trudging...

Any additional comments?

This book kept me tagging along through it, albeit having to trudge though some tortuously bad spots. By chapter 9 I was SICK of hearing all of Maddox’s tortured thoughts. Good heavens he goes on and on with those, and I could have gone without having to hear it all... And he's not the only one, but maybe the worst, lol. All of these tough guys reduced to anxious ridden melting pots was just not what I wanted to read about. Despite that, there seemed to be just enough teasers and things to keep me reading. The last half of the book really picked up though, and had me white knuckling it through to the end in suspenseful excitement. I'm off to pick up the next book (too sucked in to walk away).

One thing that was tough was keeping up with all the characters. The author didn't remind me enough of which fella is lord of which demon. I found another reviewer (can't remember where) had listed everyone out and found that list a very helpful reference....

Torin - Lord of Disease
Lucien - Lord of Death
Reyes - Lord of Pain
Aeron - Lord of Wrath
Paris - Lord of Promiscuity
Sabin - Lord of Doubt
Gideon - Lord of Lies
Kane - Lord of Disaster
Strider - Lord of Defeat
Cameo - Misery
Amun - Lord of Secrets
Anya - Goddess of Anarchy
Maddox - Lord of Violence
Ashlyn - when standing at a spot, she can hear any conversation that has taken place at the spot from the pass no matter how long time has passed.
