Series: Lords of the Underworld #9
Published by HQN Books
Paris’s frantic search for Sienna is coming to it’s conclusion, he’s lied, cheated, murdered and screwed his way to find her so he can release her from Cronus’s clutches. But their time together can only be limited as all sides of the war want Sienna, the new Keeper of Wrath, and she must make a choice stay with Paris, but damn all the Lords to death or betray Paris and save them.At last! At last we have Paris and Sienna’s book, after waiting through most the series it’s here! I confess that after all the build up I was secretly feeling a little skeptical over how good this would be, I have found the previous few books a little disappointing and didn’t want to raise my expectations too high. I worried in vain. I thought this book could possibly be the best in the series so far, it was packed with EVENTS, revelations and romance, with multiple threads playing out through the books and new characters being introduced there was never a dull moment.
Paris and Sienna, who knew they could work so well together? They had chemistry, friendship and love. Like all really good love stories the have conquered epic obstracles in their way, death, gods, demons and their own pasts. But Paris is Keeper of Promiscuity, so lets get to the hot and steamy. The sex scenes were smokin’, managing to be a great mixture of panty wettingly hot but tender as well.
But as well as the romance, a few very unexpected events happened, this book kept me reading not just to see Paris and Sienna, but to also see what else Gena was going to throw at us. We need some new demon possessed immortals, my favourite being Viola, Keeper of Narcissicty, she reminded me a little of Anya. Then, there was Kane’s stint in Hell and Galen and Legion, not to mention what the Cronus and Rhea were up to. All these things happening around the main couple made this book a one-sitting-read.
The Darkest Seduction also has Gena’s humour and wit in it, I love how her characters interact, especially the Lords, it shows their friendship perfectly.
I loved this book, it had a great romance and has left me desparate to read more, not just of Lords of the Underworld but also her new series Angels of the Dark as we get a little hint of what it is all about in the epilogue. The best in the series so far!

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?
