Ms. Georgia Lyn Hunter has the ability to capture her readers and won't let them go until the end. Tangled Sin in another installment of her Immortal Series, yet it's definitely a stand alone read.

What I love about Ms. Hunter, is her talent for writing a unique novel filled with action and an enticing storyline. The ultimate, or the cherry on top is the hotness between her main characters, this tale revolves around Riley and Saia.

If you like to read a paranormal, sizzling action pac

Great read. Riley is dark and dangerous and sexy as hell.

Saia is a woman who's had enough of her mother matchmaking, so moves away. She is world aware, her family are demon hunters, not her though, she wasn't born with that sense.

Riley is a man living a lie, he has woman falling at his feet. The women have no idea he is a demon, one that is hiding from his sire.

Saia and Riley connect one evening, he helps her out of a dangerous liason. He hopes he'll never see her aga

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Tangled Sin is the first book in the Dark Realm series. This series is a spin off of the author's Fallen Guardian series. First, I have to say I love how each of her series are connected as it provides a familiarity unlike any other available out there and is a stroke of genius. Now on to my review. Riley is a demon and heir to a demonic throne. He has no desire to take his sire's place and continues to run from hi

I can only imagine as an author how difficult it could be to keep a story line going AND to see people want to read it as well... Georgia without a doubt has mastered it. Her new world , Tangeled Sin " The Dark Realm" ( but still see some our favorite characters too ) is full of mystery and excitement. Riley is extremely sexy , guarded and of course dark (and don't forget all of the twist and surprises ) .. Saia, you really cant get enough of, she's a typical woman who has the same every day iss ...more

WOW FREAKING WOW!!! This book is addicting from the start up to the last! Made me laugh and cry all throughout. Ms. Georgia nailed it! Love this book!
Tangled Sin is Riley's story. Riley is a demon who has a not so happy past. But when he met the feisty Saia, his world turned upside down. What I love about this book is that the banter of the characters are amazing - hilarious and you can easily get hooked on what they are talking about. Anyway, as the story goes, danger is lurking in the sh

This is girl falls for boy from the wrong side of town taken to a whole new level!
In fact, taken to a new world AND an underworld.
While Saia and Riley are wonderful, well developed characters, it is Liz I was most drawn to.
Everyone here has secrets and private motivations.

The plot moves quickly rarely allowing you to come up for air.
The teasing flirtations are dark and erotic. Full of electrical spark!
Then there are the fight scenes. Full force physicall

There are many books in where I found the hero to be strong, a complete alpha, yet sensitive to others feelings, but Riley is in a sphere all his own. With his horrific past, and the responsibility of his looming future, he still protects Saia in every way he can. Saia is strong and brave in her own right, and matches Riley in temperament. While stubborn, she is fearless and protective of Riley. A great read!!

Oh my looord this book! Riley and Saia are my new favorites 😍. From the very beginning their chemistry is amazing and I could not put this book down. Riley is the strong, sexy alpha that is so much more and Saia is everything I look for in a heroine: smart, funny, sexy, brave, and not overshadowed by her alpha male. I seriously need more to this series, and soooon!

I loved this story!!!! It was great! Riley and Saia are awesome characters and they pull you in from the very beginning. Saia just wants to live her own life and to be happy. She never feels good enough for her mom and that she is always a disappointment for her. Suitors are always being pushed on her and things don't go well. She loves her dad and her brothers, who are overprotective. She moves out to live with her Aunt Liz and that is where she runs into Riley for the first time. They are draw ...more

This story started out just the way I like it with a sharp tongued sassy heroine. Saia had plenty of spunk and sass. I remembered Riley from Absolute Surrender an informant to my super hero, the blue-haired Guardian, Aethan. So, I knew Riley was a good guy (demon). Yes, Riley is another awesome and yummy alpha hero to swoon over.

This being the first novel in the Dark Realm series, this story did not disappoint. By chapter three I was knee deep in a gang fight. The plot was fast paced

What a beautifully written, action-filled, paranormal!
I don’t normally read ‘demonish’ paranormal, but man was this fabulous. I really liked that the human heroine is brave and kicks ass without any special powers. (She’s a trouble magnet, by the way). I also loved the good demon Riley. He goes through hell in this book, but his love for Saia never falters. (Note: explicit sex of the hot and sometimes kinky kind occurs).
Hunter’s world is so vivid and alive that you won’t be able

Saia and Riley forever! Riley is an AMAZING alpha male who is just super sexy, possessive, and protective. Saia has a mom who insists on pushing potential suitors at her and some truly awesome brothers and dad but she really wanted to just get out from under her mom. I thought she was very relatable and handled the craziness that was going on around her well. The ending of this book had me on the brink of tears and I can't wait to see what else this author does.

This is one of those books where a secondary character from another book called out to me, and I simply had to write his story. And wow, what a story he revealed.
Join Riley & Saia in their tumultuous but epic rollercoaster romance...from the lush green earthly realm to the dark, steamy, and dangerous world of Stygia.

If you are a fan of Georgia Lyn Hunter, be advised that this is yet another world that one gets to delve into. I am constantly amazed at the worlds and realms she visualizes. This story is just as intense as prior releases yet completely different in tone. I enjoyed it immensely.

Loved it. Saia and Riley have a definite attraction. Riley is strong and determined and Saia is equally so. She would have to be to be the mate of the price of Wra. Georgia is a very talented writer and she definitely did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend reading this book.

I love how much detail this author put into this book. Alot of authors ive recently been reading on kindle get so focused on the main characters and tend to forgot to put the effort into the background info and details which is important to keep the character engaged in the world the author creates and to connect. There wasn't to much details that would bore me but just the right amount that kept me stuck on the story and wanting to read more of the other characters also. T

I have loved Ms Hunter's writing from the very beginning after reading “Absolute Surrender” to Darkness Undone”, “Tangled Sin” does not disappoint. This story pulls you right in and doesn't let up until you are finished. I felt everything as I read it and I have to say, “Tangled Sin” is tied with “Darkness Undone” as my second favorite in the world Ms Hunter has created, “Breaking Fate” so far remains my favorite.

I have read every book in the series and enjoyed them all. Saia is a young woman who is still trying to find herself without getting lost in her mother’s shadow. Because of her mother trying to steamroll her she has to be strong.

Riley has parental issues too, but unlike Saia’s mother, I loved Riley’s dad. He exuded power, the same that Riley inherited, only a lot later.

The romance between Saia and Riley was both sweet and passionate and the adventures they went on took us to unique places. I l

the humans and in turn he hunts the demons down to protect them.
Saia walked into his bar one night and noticed a demon/human approached her,
