Having endured weeks of torture in the bowels of hell, Kane wants nothing to do with his beautiful rescuer, Josephina Aisling. The half-Fae female threatens to awaken the demon of Disaster inside him - a beast he's determined to kill, no matter the price. Josephina is hunted by a brutal enemy - her royal family - and Kane is her only source of protection. He's also the only male to ever set her aflame, and even he succumbs to the heat. But as they navigate the treacherous world of the Fae, they are forced to make a choice: live apart... or die together

This story was so unexpected. I really think that it is my favorite! Who would have thought?! Prior to this story I really did not think much about Kane. His time in hell destroyed him and broke my heart but I really didn’t know much about him.

When he his rescued by Tink I slowly began to fall him love with him. He is so much more than the Keeper of the Demon Disaster. Fate has decided he will start the Apocalypse. Fate says there are two chosen to be his wife. What will happen if he takes destiny into his own hands?

Though Hell took away so much of his softer side he will do anything to do right by the people he cares about. Tink is the same. Their story is about loving so much you let them free. Fighting only for their freedom.

As a side note: With every book I fall more in love with William!!!

When you are the keeper of the demon of Promiscuity everyone and everything falls at your feet but when Paris met Sienna no one could compare. After several books of longing and searching for her they are finally together again. Their pasts though keep them both from truly letting go and letting love in. Seducing Sienna is the hardest thing Paris has ever had to do and fighting for and keeping her heart, well that he will die for.

Sienna is no longer the timid woman she was. Now she knows that not everything or everyone is as they seem. No one exemplifies that more than Paris. Memories of him kept her as sane as she could be during her captivity and now she will do anything to save him and his friends.

Their path to romance is anything but expected and the journey will leave you breathless.

No one can defeat a Harpy. Strider has to keep reminding himself of that as Kaia makes advances and tells him that he is her Consort. No WAY! Not going to happen! Possessed by the demon of Defeat that is a no win situation for him.

Kaia has spent her life trying to make amends for an error in judgement she made as a young girl. When her sisters are asked to join the Harpy games for the first time in her life she knows this is how she can redeem herself. What she needs to be victorious though is Strider and he is fighting his attraction to her because of another mistake she made, sleeping with his friend Paris. Oops. In her defense, she did not know at the time that Strider would be her Consort. Nor did she realize her own attraction to him.

Now she must not only win the Harpy games but the heart of her man and the fight rages higher than she may be able to go!

I can tell you that I was not really of fan of Strider or Kaia. I didn’t really look forward to their story. I should have known that Gena would make me fall in love with them and cheer them on!

They say opposites attract. That has never been more true than Lysander and his obsession with Bianka. He is one of the 7. An Angel warrior. He is a rule follower, he has never been kissed and he just cannot fathom Bianka and all she does. Everything about her intrigues him. Bianka is a harpy who has to steal to eat, breaks her own bones for fun and uses sex as a weapon, among everything else available. She is his complete opposite in every single way and yet he still cannot get her out of his head. Do onto others takes on a new meaning when Lysander is stupid enough to kidnap her and take her to his cloud. Now she is a bit obsessed with taking this Angel in to temptation. Heads will roll!

With Gideon and Scarlet nothing is as it seems. They have a world of their own built on a past. Before Scarlet became the keeper of Nightmares but Gideon has no memory of her, even though he has visions of her and something about her draws his demon. He is the keeper of lies but for some reason he hears nothing but the truth from Scarlet and the story she weaves is beyond his understanding. They will both do anything to find out the truth and the journey that fallows is crazier and more bizarre than their love ever was, or is it?

Olivia literally crawls from the depths of Hell just to experience a few moments with the man who has tempted her from Heaven, Aeron. Their story is fraught with danger, anger, hurt, betrayal, passion, lust and finally love. Wash, rinse, repeat. Because nothing is ever easy for the Warriors and the women who fall for them. Nothing is as it seems and this one will wreck you!

Sabin cannot be with a woman without causing her destruction and as much as he would love to test his new found control on the wickedly tempting harpy Gwendolyn he knows that he can’t. She temps him to detraction and as dedicated as he is to the current battle the Lords of the Underworld have been tossed in to he just cannot afford to lose his concentration or to put anything above his obligation to his fellow lords.

Sabin stalks into Gwen’s life and makes it known that she means nothing to him. Why then does he want to train her so badly? Is she just another weapon in his arsenal or is there something else there? When she accidentally unleashes her harpy and overwhelms Sabin everything changes. Gwen goes from timid prisoner to the ultimate warrior but will she become a prisoner of love?
