(Amy's Review)
4 out of 5 Stars


His powers -- Inhuman...
His passion -- Beyond immortal . . .
All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member -- a man trapped in a hell of his own.  Neither can resist the instant hunger than calms their torments . . . and ignites an irresistible passion. But every heated touch and burning kiss will edge them closer to destruction -- and a soul-shattering test of love . . .

I absolutely loved this book.  I am a fan of mythology, and the Greek Myths.  This book just hit the spot.  This book is about Ashlyn and Maddox. Maddox who is possessed by a demon of violence, and dies every night at midnight to be tortured in hell for killing the female warrior Pandora.  So Ashlyn goes looking for these men who are rumored to be Angels because they do so many great thing for the towns people but what they don't know is that these men are no Angels, they are ancient warriors who are possessed by demons.  Ashlyn has a gift, she hears voices, conversations that took place in the exact spot she is standing in, with no limit of time passed.  She believes these men might be able to help her control or rid her of her gift.  She is a parapsychologist and is no stranger to the supernatural.  What she didn't expect is to find her savior in the form of Maddox.  He is the key to controlling her ability.  A romance blossoms between them but being thousands of years old, Maddox is hesitant and thinks Ashlyn might be helping the Hunters who are intent on destroying him and his fellow warriors.  Ashlyn finds out that the company she works for is not what they seem and she has been used by them for years.  Book 2 is The Darkest Kiss, it is definitely my next book.
