Driven to his death by the demon of Distrust, Baden spent centuries in purgatory. Now he's back, but at what cost? Bound to the king of the underworld, an even darker force, he's unable to withstand the touch of another...and he's quickly devolving into a heartless assassin with an uncontrollable temper. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and he finds himself saddled with a bride—just not his own.
Famed dog trainer Katarina Joelle is forced to marry a monster to protect her loved ones. When she's taken hostage by the ruthless, beautiful Baden immediately after the ceremony, she's plunged into a war between two evils—with a protector more dangerous than the monsters he hunts. They are meant to be enemies, but neither can resist the passion burning between them...and all too soon the biggest threat is to her heart.
But as Baden slips deeper into the abyss, she'll have to teach him to love...or lose him forever.
So here we are at book 12 and I STILL can not get enough of this talented author and her amazing stories! I'm so addicted!!!!
Like all the LOTU books, you are taken on one hell of a ride. Hot, scary, action packed, alpha males, badass females and life lessons. It's a yo-yo for your reader soul and every single masterful stoke dives you back down in to the next page. The next chapter. The best moments and saddest all combined. These books are the lifeblood to my PNR soul!
Yes, there's a big ole serving of side characters, stories coming down the pipes and past tales that need some attention. But that's the intricate weave of this saga, it spans over years and across dimensions.
Sure, our main male Baden has a bad past. Misunderstood much? Maybe. But every one needs a good come back story, I'm so happy Baden gets his Rocky moment! And once again the hot and heavy romance is out of this world! I know people may not all agree or like the way these two come together, but keep in mind it's NOT REAL. Sometimes you just have to go with it. I did.
If you're not swinging from the rafters, sobbing and laughing out loud during this one then check yourself for a pulse! You get everything you want and need. This latest edition is yet another PNR hit and I can't wait to see what is coming next!
