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!
