Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Gena Showalter comes a new story in her Lords of the Underworld series....

Fox is a demon-possessed immortal with many talents.

  • Ability to open portals - check
  • Power to kill the most dangerous Sent Ones - check
  • Scare away any man who might want to date her - mate

Now, the keeper of Distrust has been marked for death, a winged assassin with rainbow-colored eyes tracking her every move, determined to avenge the males she accidentally decimated. If only she could control the desire to rip off his clothes....

Bjorn is a fierce warrior with many complications.

  • Tragic, torture-filled past - check
  • A wife he was forced to wed, who is draining his life force - check
  • Ever-intensifying desire for the enigmatic Fox - mate

Never has he hesitated to exterminate an evil being. Until now. The sharp-tongued female with a shockingly vulnerable heart tempts him in ways no one else ever has, threatening his iron control.

But, as Fate itself seems to conspire against the unlikely pair, both old and new enemies emerge. And Fox and Bjorn must fight to survive.

And learn to love....

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new listeners, it's an introduction to an author's world. And for fans, it's a bonus book in the author's series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

I needed more

This story left me unsatisfied and wanting more story development and action outside of the bedroom plus most of my favorites didn't put in an appearance... The sent ones are not everyones cup of tea but this is the best sent one, probably spelling it wrong, story I have listenedto. I tried others but not a big fan of the story's where the characters spends most of the story fighting what they want to do and will do in the end... patiently awaiting William of the Dark story...

I been a longtime fan of the Lord's of The Underworld.

This is a real treat for me. I loved the short story. I can't wait to read the Darkest King I've waited along time for this release.
You will fall in love with the series.

Great story and addition to the series :D

4.5-5 stars

This was a great story. It was a enemies-to-lovers story and very well done. Fox and Bjorn are both likeable characters and it was hard to see them on opposite sides and wonder how they manage to get their HEA in the end. And while they're figuring out their "relationship" there's a lot going on, most of it overlaps with the events in the next book, The Darkest King. Overall, this was pretty typical of the rest of the books in the series...characters that are very likable in a great story that's majorly engaging (I only stopped reading this to sleep and then I was right back to reading it). I'd definitely recommend the series but the books might be a bit confusing as standalones. :D
