Synopsis
Don’t make the devil angry…

Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side. He lives for danger and isn’t the type to lose his heart—mostly because he doesn’t have one. Then she walks into his life.

Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies. Since Luke isn’t the type of man to be used, he should walk away from her, but…something about Mina draws him close.

Soon he’s realizing that she isn’t who she appears to be. Not dark and cold, but burning red hot. Mina is a woman fighting for her life—and the Lord of the Dark suddenly finds himself in an unlikely role…hero. Luke isn’t going to let her enemies destroy Mina. He will fight heaven and hell to keep her. But in the end, the secrets they both carry may just rip apart a love that should never have been…

There are Bad Things in the world…very, very bad. Are you ready for them?

My Review

★★★★☆

Luke is the ruler of the dark. He enjoys a fine whiskey and likes his life. All paranormals belong to him and he rules with an iron fist. He's practically invulnerable and no one would dare to come after him. He doesn't need anyone. Or does he? Because when he meets the woman of his dreams, Mina, he realizes that maybe he doesn't love being alone.

Mina knows she has power, but she doesn't know how or exactly what she can do. The little she does know she uses to her advantage. She wants something from Luke, and she'll use everything in her power to get it. But what happens when you pit the most powerful man in the world, aside from his twin brother, against a floundering newbie? A story of a hot collision mixed with tons of action and intrigue. Luke isn't the only one who wants her and as Mina is being hunted, she learns exactly how powerful he really is.

I've loved everything I've ever read from Cynthia Eden and The Devil in Disguise is no exception. I enjoyed the story building and introduction of characters that make up this world. I love dragons and all things mythical and this book gave me that. I also loved the way this story played around with The Little Mermaid. How cool is that? Everything that happened was entertaining and alluded to a bigger story and I know I'm going to love reading the rest.
