All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member -- a man trapped in a hell of his own.My Thoughts: This was exactly the type of book I was looking for! EXACTLY! There's a socially awkward woman with a supernatural gift and a passel of hot men who are a little on the feral side. LOVE!
Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments . . . and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction -- and a soul-shattering test of love . . .
Now, Maddox could have been the type of guy that you had no sympathy for. I mean, he's being punished for killing someone and unleashing the Demon Lords of the Underworld. However, how can you not feel for a guy who's been punished for thousands of years in a terribly horrific manner? There's punishment and then there's Geez, enough already, the guy's been punished!
Maddox's instant, bone deep attraction to Ashlyn was sweet and still somehow feral and edgy. Ashlyn herself is innocent and seems to be a perfect foil for Maddox's violence. I loved how she kept finding a way to be with him even when she was locked up or told to stay away. There's something about that sort of dedication that calls to me.
I loved the other Lords. I'm terribly excited that I'm going to get to read all their stories one after another.
