Image of The Darkest Passion (Lords of the Underworld)

Showalter’s newest Lords of the Underworld hero has been an unwilling resident of crazytown due to his demon, so his steps toward romantic love are tentative. This tale also has an unusual love triangle that could set the stage for future disaster. Showalter gives her fans another treat, sure to satisfy!

A sacrifice from his warrior friend Paris has saved Aeron from the insane rages brought on by his demon, Wrath. But Aeron has a new problem: he is being stalked by an angel with orders to kill him. Angel Olivia has been given orders to kill Aeron, but after watching him, she cannot, so she chooses to fall. Wounded and stripped of her wings, Olivia seeks help from Aeron. Both Aeron and his demon find Olivia irresistible, but there are several problems. One is the angel Lysander, who is determined to rescue his protégée, and the other is Legion, Aeron’s little demon friend. Because while Aeron has always felt paternal toward Legion, she’s got ideas about him that are more romantic in nature. (HQN, Jun., 448 pp., $7.99)
