Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .This one was quite different from the first book in the series. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this one as well, but it was a bit darker than Pleasure Unbound. There was always something going on, and seemed a little more fast-paced the the first one.
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.
Shade and Runa have a history together from the previous book. She holds Shade partially responsible for her current warewolf condition. I love these two together; she's strong, she's capable, and doesn't just blindly follow whatever Shade tells her. They do however discover in this one who is responsible for the all the Ghouls and harvesting.
Wraith as usual is a blast, and I can't wait to see the woman who will be mated with him for the next 600 years. And I'm totally pulling for Gem to get her man; I'm hoping they get their own book.
