Darkness Seduced - Stephanie Rowe

Immortal warrior Gideon Roarke made an oath five hundred years ago to the woman who died for him. The ancient Calydon is ruthless in his quest to honor that promise, even if it means risking everything by teaming up with the one woman who will either destroy him, or finally bring redemption to his blackened, hardened soul.

After escaping from a two-year imprisonment at the hands of a madman, the only thing Lily Davenport wants is to go home and reclaim her life. Unfortunately for Lily, standing between her and that goal is a sensual, demanding protector whose dangerous seduction threatens to claim her life…and her soul.

The Calydons Destiny: The Calydons are a race of ancient immortals cursed with a dark side. Each Calydon is destined to meet his soul mate, to be so drawn to her that he is unable to resist bonding with her through the rituals of his race...

...but their destiny is to destroy each other and all they care about the moment their bond is complete.

Darkness Seduced, Stephanie Rowe, April 15, 2012

Stephanie Rowe's latest series, Primal Heat Trilogy: The Order of The Blade, takes you to a world where cursed warriors are willing to kill to spare the innocents of the world, including their destined soul mates. Darkness Seduced pulls the reader further into the tales of the Calydon as they fight to keep intact the walls containing the end of the world.

Brilliant Calydon expert Dr. Lily Davenport has despised Gideon Roarke forever, vilifying him publicly in her research and her writings. Held prisoner for the past two years by a rogue Calydon, Lily helps to save fellow captive Ana. Her own salvation comes in the form of the one man she blames for the destruction of her family. Despite their best efforts to fight a deadly destiny and each other, passion explodes between the centuries old warrior and the sassy survivor Santika as they unite to prevent the release of the most ancient of Calydon warriors - the one prophesied to destroy mankind. Their dark, edgy, sexy bonding ritual sizzles on the page, mingling blood and sex with soul shattering connections that leave the reader a little breathless!

Ms. Rowe surely knows how to create dramatic characters that grab you and haul you on a thrill ride. The world building of book one has already been established - more details are revealed about the history of the ancient warrior race and others intermingled in a way that is not only palatable but makes the reader crave more. Darkness Seduced delivers tight plot lines, well written, witty and lyrical - Rowe lays down some seriously dark and sexy tracks. There is no doubt that this series will have a cult following: The Order of the Blade series brings a whole new sub genre to the paranormal world - Calydons, Illusionists, Santika, oh my!

These warriors are soooo worth it - five Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries and a glass of ice water to cool a body down after reading this steamy, action-packed adventure!
