THE DARKEST KISS
Showalter's cursed warriors can't seem
to catch a break. In this new chapter
the Lords of the Underworld engage in a deadly dance. Anya is a fascinating blend of spunk, arrogance and vulnerability -- a perfect match for the tormented Lucien.
Anya, the goddess of anarchy, is drawn to warrior Lucien, who carries the incarnation of death. With Cronus free and back in charge, Anya is in a tricky position. She has a key he wants so badly that he orders Lucien to kill Anya. As Anya drives him nuts with her taunting and tempting presence, Lucien is at first determined to carry out his orders. But the fires of attraction flare between these cursed souls. Lucien and his fellow warriors are hunting for the dimOuniak in hopes of forcing their demons back into the box, and Anya says she can help. Can they break free? (HQN, Jun., 384 pp., $6.99)
