Format: Ebook

Blurb: Forced to his knees in agony whenever he speaks the truth, Gideon can recognize any lie—until he captures Scarlet, a demon-possessed immortal who claims to be his long-lost wife. He doesn't remember the beautiful female, much less wedding—or bedding—her. But he wants to…almost as much as he wants her.

But Scarlet is keeper of Nightmares, too dangerous to roam free. A future with her might mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon's enemies draw closer—and the truth threatens to destroy all he's come to love….

Review in 5: Disappointed, forced, steamy, intriguing, UNHAPPY!

Review: This is the lowest review I have ever given any of the LOU books. I am sad because Gideon's book is the book I have been waiting for since we met him. GRRRR! Ok, on with it. I felt that the book was sort of pieced together and that Scarlet and Gideon were sort of forced together, that is just the way I felt, don't stone me. I just felt that every conflict came up there was a convenient solution for it and I don't like that in books.

Of course, as with all Ms. Showalter's books, there was a TON of steam. I love that about her books, she jumps right into her naughty scenes and keeps on moving. I also loved seeing Torin pop up here and there through out this book, because I love him, and along those lines I like the new view of Amun, I am definitely now more interested in his book when it comes out.

*SPOILER ALERT* *READING BELOW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS*  *SPOILER ALERT*
highlight the text in order to see it.

What is with trying to save the stupid little demon, Legion? I would have left her after all that she had done to me and I don't think her life was worth the cost of Amun's life possibly. I really hate her. I also think there may be something in the future for Legion and the evil demon of Hope (forgot his name now, sorry)

  1. Bummed to hear it was disappointing. I was really looking forward to Gideon's story.
