The Darkest Seduction By Gena Showalter


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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?

Since the moment I read the first Lord of The Underworld book, I was dying to read them all. They immediately became my favorite series. I couldn't wait to read Paris's story, then I realized he hadn't had a book yet. So you can imagine how excited I must have been when I found out Gena was finally writing his story! The day the book came out, I was at the store going through the shelves and peeking in the boxes as they were being put away. Finally! I had The Darkest Seduction in my hands! I did the happy dance in the middle of the aisle...and no, I didn't care who was watching me!
It took me less than 2 days to read the book. It was a little slow at first for me, but It was nice that it wasn't just all thrown together. It made you want to continue reading to see what was going to happen. Was Paris going to ever find Sienna? Would he finally be able to see her? Would she ever be free?......
We were introduced to some new characters in the book as well, the *cough* annoying Lord of Narcissism and three Lords that were held captive in the castle. We saw a lot more of Zacharel, which I'm thinking may be a set up to the new Angels of the Dark series. We got to see a little of Galen and Legion's side story, got the set-up on Kane's story with the female Horseman and got a few teasers on the immortal, William The Ever-Randy, plus a few other shocking things I can't wait to read about in future stories!
All in all the book was great and a must have on every bookshelves. Absolutely worth the read, especially if you love GS and plan to read her other LOTU books.
