Book Description:
At long last, New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter unveils the story of Paris, the darkest and most tormented Lord of the Underworld….

Possessed by the demon of Promiscuity, immortal warrior Paris is irresistibly seductive—but his potent allure comes at a terrible price. Every night he must bed someone new, or weaken and die. And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he'd thought was forever beyond his reach…until now.

Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet in Paris's arms, the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up.

Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally—or tear them apart?

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
I enjoyed this book a lot. I have been wondering about Paris and Sienna since we first met Sienna. I have also been wondering all along how Paris would settle down with one woman when he can't sleep with a woman twice. As it turns out Showalter explains this all very nicely and Paris and Sienna's story is wonderfully entertaining and romantic.

Paris, isn't my favorite of the Lords but he has intrigued me over the series. I think this book portrays him more strongly than other appearances of him in the series and the Lord we met in this book was more interesting than in the past.

Sienna's character wasn't that fully developed, in my opinion, and yet she made me like her. Something about her honesty and understanding made her a very fresh character and I believe seeing her in future books will help develop her more.

Overall a pretty good book, though I admit, I'm still partial to Lucien and Strider.
