New York & Costa Rica, Present Day

Runa Wagner did the one thing she never expected to do and that was fall in love with a stranger. Someone who seemed to know all of her deepest desires. The passion that was between them was so strong that she never has a chance of resisting it. All that came to an end the day Runa discovered Shade’s betrayal. Now Runa has gone through a transformation that she never expected and isn’t completely sure of how to handle and which was just made even worse when she is taken as a prisoner by Shade’s darkest enemy.

Shade is a Seminus Demon that has had a love curse placed on him one that promises him eternal torment. When Runa left him Shade thought that was the end of Runa and her irresistible charm. Just when he thought he was safe Shade wakes up in a dungeon chained to a very different Runa. This Runa has a strength that was never there before. If Shade thought she was dangerous to him before that is nothing compared to what she is now with all the changes she seems to have under gone. Now things are getting even worse with their captor placing a spell on them that has bonded them as mates for the rest of their lives.

Now Shade and Runa need to fight for their lives and their hearts if they have any hope of surviving the madman that is now after them. It is going to take everything they have to find a way out of the mess they have suddenly found themselves in. Runa is going to find out just how strong she has finally become both physically and mentally. Shade is going to find out just what is most important to him and he will have to try and find a way to overcome his curse if he hopes to have the future he suddenly wants to have with this new Runa.

This one is one hard to put down once the reader starts it. The world building begun in the first book in this series takes on more detail with this second book. The characters have even more depth as their stories really start to unfold as the series moves along. This story also delivers some really good twists to the overall story that makes the book move right along as you read the story. This is one not to miss.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
