*4.5 stars* Wow. When I started this book, I wouldn't have believed that, by the last 25 pages I would have been glued to the pages, shedding tears, surprised, and happily contemplating that there are 2 more books in this series! The Lords of the Underworld are warriors from the days of gods and goddesses who got a little frisky back in the day and ... well, suffice it to say that Pandora and her fabled box are involved. As punishment, these men have to live an eternity, each possessed by a demon. Our hero, who has had additional curses atached to him because he had been the ringleader, houses the demon Violence. The heroine, smart but vulnerable, innocent but strong, gets up close and personal with Violence and closer than she'd like to a few other demons housed in gorgeous men. There was quite a bit of hot bedroom (and shower) action, suspense, humor (gotta' love that demon Promiscuous!), romance, mystery, and paranormal action. My only complaint is that, after getting used to a certain pace through most of the book (things were fairly slow-moving, as each and every midnight was important to the story), the author rushed things in the end, sometimes having days pass "off-screen", so to speak. However, as I was in a rush to see what was going to happen, it really didn't bother me that much! If frank sexual language and explicit acts bother you, you'd better avoid this one.

I liked this book. Book 2 has been sitting in my TBR pile for a while now; hopefully, I'll get to it sometime this week.

Zara If you have read any P C cast books could you let me know how alike the writing style is. The two have done lots together and I'm hoping that is because their style is simialr. Thanks
