Publisher's Summary

At long last, New York Times best-selling author Gena Showalter unveils the story of Paris, the darkest and most tormented Lord of the Underworld….
Possessed by the demon of Promiscuity, immortal warrior Paris is irresistibly seductive - but his potent allure comes at a terrible price. Every night he must bed someone new, or weaken and die. And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he'd thought was forever beyond his reach… until now.
Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet in Paris's arms, the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up.
Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally - or tear them apart?

Well Worth the Wait

This book is the latest in Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series, and it was certainly worth the wait. This series is great for those who like paranormal or fantasy romance, and the hero of this book, Paris, has been my favorite "Lord" from the start. Even though it's not been that long since the last book in the series was published, I'd been waiting not so patiently for Paris' story since the first. This book appeared in New Releases 3 days before I was due to get my credits, but there was no hesitation. I threw it in my cart and purchased it within 30 seconds of first seeing it listed. I'm pleased to say that it lived up to and even exceeded my expectations.

Each book in this series focus' on one couple, but there is an ongoing back story that continues on from book to book. The books are sensual and the sex scenes are explicit and detailed, but not so much as to take away from the storyline. The plot in fast paced, the action is covered well without getting bogged down with details. No, it isn't serious literary fiction and doesn't pretend to be, but it scores high on the "good escapist fun" scale.

Previous books give you an obvious clue to who the heroine in this story is, but there are still enough unexpected twists to make it worth the read. Without risking a spoiler, I'll only say for those reading the series that some big changes take place in the back story in this book.

Max Bellimore does a tremendous job with this material as usual. He seems to get better and better with each book. He does great character voices and keeps the narrative flowing smoothly.

This series is fantastic, and this book has to be hands down the best one yet. Five stars all around because there's just nothing about this book that I didn't like.

Not the best..but still very good!

Although this not my favorite - I think mostly due to how high in the sky my expectations were, this was still a tremendous listen and I highly recommend it (as part of a series- for complete enjoyment) to any fan of a hot ( yes, strong sexual content) paranormal romance genre.
Thank God Ms. Showalter hasn???t lost her ability to take me away now that I???m finding more and more difficult to surrender my mind and heart to a Paranormal Romance novel.
I love the lords and I???ve not grown tired of their world, I still want to hear William???s story (my favorite) I still want to go all the way to end, and if you???re a fan of the series I wouldn???t skip this one, it still contains all the elements that made you love it in the first place.
Well developed characters???
A good love story???
Updates on the rest the lords ???
It was great to get Galen???s point of view which has ignited my interest in him and Legion. I really enjoyed their story, I???m dying to see where it goes and where it will end.
New characters are introduced, secrets are revealed and don???t you want to know if the end is getting near?
LOTU continues to be one of favorite Paranormal Romance series.
All in all, this is a solid entry to the Lords of the Underworld and a highly enjoyable listen.

I can???t believe that I have to start my review of the narration with ??? how can???t anyone not love Max Bellmore???????
I love the way he narrates these books, and The Darkest Seduction is not the exception.
Again he???s approach and pace are flawless, and the mood of the novel, the characters personality, and sensuality are perfectly conveyed.
Another fantastic job by very talented narrator.
