Released: January 20, 2009
Series: Immortals After Dark #7
Published by Pocket Books
Genres: Paranormal Romance
Sabine, Sorceress of Illusions: the evil beauty who surrenders her body, but not her heart.
Rydstrom Woede: the ruthless warrior who vows to keep her at all costs.
THEY WERE NEVER SUPPOSED TO WANT EACH OTHER THIS MUCH…
With each smoldering encounter, their shared hunger only increases. If they can defeat the sinister enemy that stands between them, will Sabine make the ultimate sacrifice for her demon? Or will the proud king lay down his crown and arms to save his sorceress?
You know that saying that still waters run deep? Well this book is what happens when those still waters are installed into a sexy demon king and then a hand grenade aka Sabine Queen of Illsions is thrown in them! Needless to say the results are explosive!
Rydstrom is hands down the sexiest demon EVER, and I loved his book, I know this is quite a few peoples least favourite, but they must all be crazy. The sexual tension, the sexy Rydstrom, the action, the hot as hell Rydstrom, a smart ass heroine who has become my favourite female in the series and oh did I mention the exteremly lickable Rydstrom?
As I mentioned above, Sabine has become my favourite female in the series, she was funny and slightly evil, although I think survivor is probably a more apt description of her.
This book was really great and another great addition to the Immortals after Dark series which seems to be getting better and better.
I am trying to think of my favourite quote, but there are just so damn many! So here are a few:
“Blah, blah, blah. Demon boy, I can’t speak that language. Furthermore, I don’t want to pollute my brain by learning it. So it’s time for you to learn mine. First lesson-I’m Say-been. I’m oft described as byoo-tee-full and mah-jest’ick.”
“You know, do nice shite for her. Buy her things. Really think about what she likes and what makes her happy and make it happen. She’ll come around. And if she doesn’t, you can cut off your horns for her. Chicks dig that.”
In an incredulous tone, he said, “You don’t know the meaning of virtue!”
“Of course I do-it means your thong must be white.”
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
