Week 24 Reviews: Heart of Darkness, The Darkest Passion

From Goodreads:
From the masters of paranormal romance, three brand-new tales of seduction…The Darkest Angel by Gena Showalter

A Lords of the Underworld tale

An iron-willed demon assassin, the angel Lysander has never known lust—until he meets Bianka. Spawned from the bloodline of Lucifer, the beautiful but deadly Harpy is determined to lead the pure-hearted Lysander into temptation….

Love Me to Death by Maggie Shayne

Twenty-two years ago four teenage boys were convicted of a young girl's murder. Now, in the form of a beautiful woman, the "victim" is seeking vengeance. And only one man dares to dig into the past to uncover its secrets… and set her free.

Lady of the Nile by Susan Krinard

Lady Tameri believes herself to be the reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian princess, and Leo Erskine has set out to prove her wrong…never dreaming that the two of them are about to discover a prophecy that will bind them together forever.

From Goodreads:
For weeks, the immortal warrior Aeron has sensed an invisible female presence. An angel-demon-assassin has been sent to kill him. Or has she? Olivia claims she fell from the heavens, giving up immortality because she couldn't bear to harm him. But trusting - and falling for - Olivia will endanger them all. So how has this mortal with the huge blue eyes already unleashed Aeron's darkest passion?

With an enemy hot on his trail and his faithful demon companion determined to remove Olivia from his life, Aeron is trapped between duty and consuming desire. Worse still, a new executioner has been sent to do the job Olivia wouldn't...

My Review:
Oh, man, loved rereading these books, they were just fantastic, and we got that glimpse of Baden, who has been mentioned multiple times as the only Lord to be killed by hunters, and even Pandora was there for a while! And we got an first look into the angel world in The Darkest Angel, then The Darkest Passion, as it was a longer book, and we got a few more details, but yeah, the angel world is one I hope we get to explore!!! Well, I know we will, because of the Angels of the Dark series!

Heart of Darkness was really awesome, though while I only read it for The Darkest Angel, I enjoyed all of the stories in it! They were all fantastic, well told, and entertaining! I enjoyed al three of them, which is no surprise, as I've enjoyed other books by all of them!

Oh, Passion had a lot going on. Like Olivia, which further connects the angel world to this one, so yeah, that was really fantastic! And the thing with Legion, and what she did, well, not the smartest, since as it turns out, he thought of her as a daughter, not a lover. Yeah.

We get to see Baden, and Pandora, which was really great! Since they've both been mentioned in the series, but this is the first time that we've truly met them, so yeah, that was really fantastic! I really hope that they're able to rescue them!

Such a great book, loved how it resolved, and I need more!
