Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .
Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn't resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he'd seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts-or succumb to a madman's evil plans. - via GoodReads
Runa Wagner made the mistake of falling for a man who only went by the name of Shade. Before Shade, Runa was shy and never took risks but Shade was patient with her and truly seemed to care for her. That illusion is shattered the night that Runa walked in on Shade with not one but two other women. That night Runa’s life was altered forever.
It’s been quite awhile since Shade had woken up shackled to a wall and can’t remember why. This time is different and it certainly isn’t good. Shade’s cellmate might even be more dangerous than his enemy. Runa’s had a year to cool down but her life has changed so much since that long ago night and she lays the blame squarely at Shade’s feet. Before she can seek her vengeance, she and Shade have to survive and work together long enough to escape their extra-crispy captor. Before they are able to escape their dungeon, their captor bonds them. Doesn’t sound too bad right? Well Shade has carried a curse for the past 80 years. Should he fall in love, a fate worse than death awaits him.
This is a book that left me breathless. I was constantly being surprised and Ione holds back no punches. The characters are so vivid you would almost believe that they’re real. A mystery from the first book is resolved and the bad guy is so dirty and vile he made my skin crawl. Ione grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let up . If you enjoyed the first in the series, be sure to follow up with the second. It is not to be missed!
