Review: The Darkest Seduction by Gena Showalter

The Darkest Seduction is the eleventh installment in the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter and a Paranormal Romance from HQN.


Possessed by the demon of Promiscuity, immortal warrior Paris is irresistibly seductive - but his potent allure comes at a terrible price. Every night he must bed someone new, or weaken and die. And the woman he craves above all others is the one woman he'd thought was forever beyond his reach...until now. 

Newly possessed by the demon of Wrath, Sienna Blackstone is racked by a ruthless need to punish those around her. Yet in Paris's arms, the vulnerable beauty finds soul-searing passion and incredible peace. Until a blood feud between ancient enemies heats up.

Will the battle against gods, angels and creatures of the night bind them eternally - or tear them apart?

My thoughts:

Paris houses the demon of Promiscuity.  He calls his demon Sex and that is what his demon needs - daily - or Paris will weaken.  If that happens, then Sex takes over, releasing a pheromone that attracts everyone and everything - leaving Paris with no control over who he sleeps with.  There is one problem though - Paris can not sleep with the same person twice - it is physically impossible.

Until Sienna Blackstone.  For the first time Paris is not only willing - but able - for a second go round with the same person.  Before he can analyze the why and what fors? - Sienna is killed.

Cronus steps in and places the demon of Wrath inside of the human Sienna - then locks her away.  When Paris finds out that Sienna is still around he is determined to find her.

And find her, he does.  

But Cronus has plans for Sienna - plans that do not involve Paris.  If that weren’t bad enough - another faction is interested in Sienna.  It would appear that the war between Cronus and his wife Rhea has far more at stake than first believed - and Sienna may hold the key to victory - or be the bearer of defeat...     

I love this series and, like everyone else, have been waiting for Paris’s story.  I was not disappointed   

I give The Darkest Seduction 5 out of 5 stars.
