Runa experienced almost unbelievable passion with a sexy stranger but when she discovered his betrayal, fury pushed it to the back of her mind. Her anger was further fuelled by what happened as she left his home. She wants to make him pay and searches for him only to find herself in one of the worst places imaginable.
Shade is a Seminus demon with a love curse hanging over his head which could lead to his eternal torment. When he wakes up in a dungeon belonging to the ghouls who have been stealing body parts, he finds Runa chained up next to him. She affects him more than ever, but something seems different about her, changed from the timid woman he slept with nearly a year ago. When their captor tricks them into bonding as life-mates he knows he must keep her at a distance to prevent the love curse activating. His body seems to have different ideas however, and he finds himself fighting to stay one step ahead of the madman who captured them as well as his own feelings.
If possible I felt this book was even better than the first and did not see coming what we discovered in the first few chapters. The lives of the demons we met in the first book are thrown into turmoil by this discovery and it sets the plot-line up very nicely. The story was fast moving, action packed and full of sex (lots and lots of sex!!!) – well what do you expect with Incubus demons? It was equally full of twists and turns and I liked how Larissa Ione tied in things from the first book that at the time did not register as major events.
As well as the story involving Shade and Runa we get to find out more about Wraith and I am really looking forward to reading his book. We also catch up with Kynan and learn a lot more about Gem. There was so much happening in this book and just when you think you can relax, something else comes to light. I started this book in the afternoon and by 9 pm I had finished, I could not put it down. Bring on the next one!!!
