Darkest pleasure

Darkest Pleasure
Gena Showalter
ISBN 03737733102

Reyes is the last man Dannika should trust. For one thing, he's bound to the demon of pain and forbidden to know pleasure. For another, he and his cohorts kidnapped her and have tried to exterminate her family. Yet, now, she is the one woman he wants and he is the only man who can keep her safe. Mortals determined to end Reyes and his fellow Lords of Darkness' existence have tried to use Dannika, demons want her dead, and now, she learns she and the other women in her family are they key to some sort of treasure. Her choices now might be the difference between love and death, and could prove critical for the world itself.

Of all the books in this series, this is the most moving and compelling. The concluding chapters will simply stun you with the drama of them. I'm reminded somewhat of the Key to Time series from the classic Doctor Who era and also of Terry Brooks' earliest works. However, there is much more romance and passion in this. You will not be sorry if you add this to your collection.
