Image of Darkest Desire (Black Gryffon)

This second installment in the Black Gryffon series is a bit of a letdown. Lei and Malek’s love develops at a decent pace and feels real, but while there is plenty of action, there are gaps in the story, and characters aren’t fully developed. If you didn’t read the first book, you may feel a little out of the loop. That being said, it is still a page-turner.

Lei is just trying to restore her soul and take charge of her life. Malek is willing to do whatever it takes to help her. As a dom, Malek seems like the last person to do Lei any good, since she is also a dom and Malek is in an ongoing relationship with Brent. However, there is a continuing threat to Lei, as the enemy Chimera tries to grab a powerful energy source that the Black Gryffons are guarding. (APHRODISIA, Sep., 256 pp, $14.00)
