SHE HAS A BODY MADE FOR TEMPTATION...AND A KISS TO DIE FOR.
The war between otherworlders and humans changed Earth beyond recognition. It also saved Bride McKells's life. Before, the gorgeous vampire was a target for every fanatic with a stake and a crucifix. Now, she's free to roam the streets -- and desperate to find others of her kind. One man claims to have the answers she seeks. Devyn, King of the Targons, is a warrior and a womanizer, and he makes no secret of how much he wants Bride -- and how dangerous he could be to her in every way.
An avid collector of women, Devyn easily seduces human and otherworlder alike. Until now. Not only does Bride resist him, but she leaves Devyn feeling something entirely new...a bone-deep need bordering on obsession. Her blood is the key to curing a vicious alien disease, but helping Bride uncover her origins will compel her to choose between electrifying passion and a destiny that could tear her from Devyn's side forever.
I am finding the more I read in the series, the more I fall in love. Initially I was leery because when I think paranormal, my thoughts normally take me to vampires and werewolves and the like. Aliens had me a bit skeptical. However, Gena Showalter has built a fabulous, fascinating world where aliens exist amongst humans.
My love for Seduce The Darkness revolves around the characters. Both the main characters as well as the side characters who we learn a little bit more about in each book. Devyn is so full of himself and his effect on woman it is funny. Yes, he is a slut, and there is actually truth behind his claims of irresistibility. He is truly stumped by Bride resisting his charms. He is even more stumped by his fascination with her. Is it just a case of wanting what you can’t have, or is there more to his attraction to her.
“Devyn: “But what can I say? I’m irresistible.”
Bride: “No, you’re a ho, but the good news is I’m ok with that!”
Bride is also very confident in herself, or at least she portrays that she is. She is lost in this world as she searches for her friend and any others of her species that can answer questions she has since she has no memory of being with other vampires. Bride has developed abilities over the centuries, but truly has no idea what she is capable of. She is desperate not only to find out more about herself but also to find her friend. Devyn seems to know about both and she plans to play him until he gives up his knowledge. So begins the game. He wants her and what she has, she wants him and what he has. Now they have to make it all work together.
I was a bit confused about the timing of this book with Tempt Me Eternally. Goodreads says that Tempt Me Eternally is actually book 4.5 in the series, but I think it should have been book 3.5 as there are events and relationships in Seduce The Darkness that were dealt with in Tempt Me Eternally.
I am really enjoying this series. The audio is really well done and the story was fast paced and kept me wondering what was going to happen next. Also, I cannot WAIT until Dallas gets his book. I am trying to wait so I have them all in audio, but they are releasing them so slow it is KILLING me! Next release is in April and I can guarantee I will be saving a credit for it!
