There is no such thing as a chance meeting.
There’s no room in Avery Nicolis's life for an obsession, yet why else does he stalk Emeline Gamble. Lurking in the shadows, he hungers for a woman he can’t have. Between the secrets he guards and anarchy roiling in his soul, his only solace are his glimpses of Emeline. He will resist her, protect her from himself, and deny his desire to claim her heart.
Emeline Gamble was a Watcher for the Order—a secret society of women charged with monitoring the offspring of the gods. For months, she observed Avery Nicolis, an elite mercenary, Descendant of Ra, and enemy of the Order. Never knowing he had her in his crosshairs.
Trapped in a lie, Emeline is forced to accept Avery as her bodyguard. Compelled to spend time with him, she learns to care for his tortured soul and see the hero lurking beneath the assassin’s façade. But every word out of her mouth is a lie. Every action a betrayal. Because to save her family she is forced to accept a new assignment, deliver Avery Nicolis to the Goddess of Chaos, alive...
And do not fall in love with him.

Avery. If you thought the first two Nicolis were complicated it's nothing compaired to Avery. He has his secrets and keeps everthing to himself, never letting anyone in even his brother.

Emeline was a part of a secret order to keep an eye on decendants of Egyptian gods, but that al ended when her Grand needed her to take care of him. Her last job was to keep an eye on Avery and now forced back into doing the orders bidding she's supposed to gain his trust and betray him. But even before thier offical meeting she knew she could never do it, but what will happen when they come together and what happens when he discovers her secrets.

Avery is strong, silent, dangerious and angry. Keeping his anger in check is a chore but he does the best he can. He's also honorable and for those he cares about he would do anything.

Emeline is headstrong, but she also has great inner strength. She tries to do everything herself because she doesn't want anyone else to get hurt.

Where Avery opens up to protect those he loves Eme is closed of in order to protect them. They have their share of troubles, and it's quite a journey to see them figure everything out.

We see more of the storyline continued from the first two books and we understand more and see where the story will take us in the future.

I actually give 4 1/2 stars.

The storyline hooked me at the first sentence. With a heroine I began to like and a hero I fell for, Ms. Stephens gives the reader a paranormal romance worth a long winter’s night read. It will definitely keep the reader warm.

Read rest of the review (under my name, Pamela K. Kinney) I did for I Smell Sheep Reviews: http://www.ismellsheep.com/2015/01/bo...

This series provides an unanticipated journey that is action packed and leaves you wondering what's next. I do not recommend you read this book until you read the first two books in the series. The books build on each other with certain details of the Pantheon that would seem confusing otherwise. I enjoyed Avery and Emeline's story and how it began to merge the other characters together. Several ideas from the previous books made sense in this one. There are still so many questions that were left unanswered. This book provided so many close calls for the group! Tmonique Stephens has done a great job researching and spinning together such an engaging series. I look forward to reading more. I received a free copy from BookSprout in exchange for an honest review.

This is book 3 of the Descendants of RA series and it’s just as exciting as the other stories, and this is the story of Emeline and Avery. Emeline is a watcher for the Order a secret society that watches the offspring of the gods, she has been tasked with watching over Avery until she is ordered to take Avery to the goddess of chaos. That’s all I’m going to give you guys but let me tell you that this is a very exciting read and I loved every bit of it, I can’t wait to read the next book Encore which I will be reading once I’ve finished this. A fantastic read and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.

The Goddess of Chaos is a vengeful entity who has set her sight on Avery Nicolis and the infinite chaos that thrives within him. The Nicolis are descendents of the Egyptian god Ra and many of them are vessels housing entities of power, or demigods. Like Avery. This is a really great story and a huge one, as it continues from the previous books about Roman and Reign Nicolis. Lots of deadly confrontations and passionate romance. A very exciting read!

I am so glad I was able to read this entire series!
Her writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole of each story.
I found myself in love with not only the characters, but also the world she creates.
You truly feel as though you are living among the characters.
Great character development, steamy sex scenes and enough of the everyday grind to really be able to sink into each and every book.

I must say if you have not started reading this series then you need to start reading it. The Descendants of Ra is such a great series to read and written by an insanely talented auther. I love that thus series is filled with action and it is really fast paced. I love that this is such an adult themed read with great steamy and great characters. Highly recommend this series and this auther.

Evermore is book three of this captivating series and I can't wait to read the rest of the books to find out what happens next. Action packed, suspense, drama, steam and intriguing characters make this a great read. Avery and Emeline have steamy chemistry but is it enough to get passed all the betrayal and chaos.

At first I was a little confused, I've not read any other book in the series, so maybe that's why.
In the end, I bloody enjoyed this book now I'm thinking I need to read the series.

Independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock. Once again Tmonique has done it and now with Avery another of the gorgeous Nicolis. He is a strong tempered but honorable man that fights the obsession he has with Emeline. Emeline was part of and order in charged of watching the offspring. Of gods and now she had to get close to Avery with lies and gain his trust.
Once again I love the writing style and will continue to read her books.
So far this is my favorite of the series and I give this book 5 fangs!!!!!

I wasn't the biggest fan of this book or series. I felt it had a great concept but how it was played out was lacking. I have a hard time labeling how this book was because it has promise and I am interested in seeing other works by this author to see if they are better.
