This is the 3rd in the Demonica series by Larissa Ione and the story of Wraith and Serena.
Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter-and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she's been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn't all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she's finally met the one man she cannot resist.
Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe-her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: He's falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.
I love this series - but this book, by far, has been my favorite.
I was amazed at the transformation of Wraith as the story progressed. :) Who would have thought that Wraith could become a kind, thoughtful individual? This is the brother that only thought of himself - doing whatever he wanted to do and damn the consequences, no matter who or what was harmed.
Serena is a perfect partner for Wraith. She is strong, stands up for herself and doesn't take any of Wraith's crap. :)
The twists and turns we face in this book are many - and some of them are 'wow' moments.
I give this book and the entire series 5 out of 5 stars. :)
