Lilah will do anything to return home, including betraying Roth. As she spins her web of lies, Roth begins a slow, wicked seduction that eventually threatens to consume them both.

MY REVIEW

Lilah was a warrior of Artemis, cast out for falling in love and giving her virtue to a man. Desperate to get back into the good graces of the goddess and back to Olympus, she’s willing to do just about anything. Tasked with bringing Roth to Ares for a past indiscretion, she goes to his stomping grounds to learn more about him, stalk him, and worm her way into his life. Roth is an incubus, or so it seems, but the more time Lilah spends with him, the more she discovers the man many never get to know. Maybe he’s not just a philandering whoremonger after all.

I loved this little departure from the amazing Celia Aaron. I’m a huge fan of paranormal romance and realize that not every author can pull it off. I’m happy to say that she did so almost flawlessly. Her characters were instantly relatable, her plot and its points were fantastical and compelling, and her writing, as always, kept me captivated. With an open-ended conclusion and an array of appealing side characters, I can only hope that the author will be bringing these people back to life again some day.
