Book Review: The Darkest Kiss by: Gena Showalter

Summary:
She has tempted many men… but never found her equal.
Until now.
Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death—a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.
But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining.…

I love both of the main characters in this book. Anya is strong and independent, Lucian is controlled and methodical, and they both totally mess with each others heads. The book was steamy enough, and the plot line had sufficient twists. This book was more about the plot as a whole than the last book, which was good, but some of it seemed too rushed. For example, when Anya went from "Your ok" to "I love you"...I felt a bit rushed for that emotional leap. Lucian was a goner from the beginning though. I am curious as to what is going to happen with Paris, and the hunter getting killed, tricky, tricky. Overall not to bad, but not as good as the first still...two more to go though, hopefully one of them will trump Maddox and Ashlyn.
