Back Cover Blurb:

In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow:

Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.

But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it's my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling.

Or so I thought until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger-it's not just her name, it's how she lives her life. She doesn't trust me at all. And who could blame her? She alone knows that I'm here to be judge, jury and most likely executioner of her friends. Yet she is my key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die.

Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead. But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I've ever loved?

My Review:

OMG! Kenyon had me scared for a bit with this one! I couldn’t believe the plot twists and turns that popped up throughout. I definitely could have never imagined it but the entire plot came together seamlessly. She had me both laughing and crying throughout. At the same time, she continues to build her world and the mythology surrounding it, allowing everything to coalesce into something that you can picture yourself walking through.

The lead couple in this novel was definitely unexpected. I love the way that they came together and got to know one another. The relationship was complex and bent the norms that Kenyon has set out for the series. The supporting cast was great too. Simi and her sister are priceless. They are the best comical interlude ever. Kenyon also gave more and more insights into Acheron’s character. I love the way that he’s gradually unfolding and becoming such a complex and intriguing character.

This novel was a fantastic addition to the series. I enjoyed it thoroughly and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
