"Rowe is a paranormal star." ~J.R. Ward
USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe, returns to the haunted recesses of the Underworld, where the most dangerous and unpredictable Calydon warrior of all must face his darkest past and the sensual woman hiding a secret he can't afford to discover.
Intensely loyal and yet violently unpredictable, immortal warrior Ryland Samuels has one chance to save the soul of the man he owes his life to, but with each passing moment, he spirals closer and closer to the life that once trapped him, a nightmare that has been waiting to reclaim him for almost a thousand years.
Ravaged by betrayal and loss, Catherine Taylor is almost out of time to save her daughter from a place so deadly, so haunted, that no one has emerged alive in centuries. The angel of death will not let anything stand in her way, not even the deadly, haunted warrior on a lethal mission. Ryland needs her help desperately, but she needs his even more…and they can't both get what they want.
Forbidden heat explodes between the two tormented, isolated souls when they meet, a fiery, sensual connection that threatens everything they hold most dear. Will they survive the passion raging between them? Or will it cost them the one thing each cannot bear to lose?
