Reviewed by Talia Ricci



Aeron is the keeper of the Demon of Wrath.  He can look inside a person and know exactly what that person has done in his/her lifetime.  More often than not, this knowledge makes Aeron and his demon very angry.  Wrath is rarely quiet, but lately however, Aeron has been sensing another presence in his life.  A presence that is not making itself known and it is driving Aeron and his demon crazy.  Aeron threatens the unknown company, even going so far as to dare it to come into his life.  Aeron has no idea how much this has been disturbing him until he finally sees who has been following him.   And she is wearing white and used to have wings.  Her beauty is incomparable and she makes his demon purr.  Aeron knows that to touch her means her ruin and that is something he isn’t willing to do.  Besides, he already has a woman, or rather, a young girl, in his life and the demon Legion isn’t willing to share.

Just when I think Gena Showalter couldn’t possibly make her Lords of the Underworld series more unique, she comes up with the plot for The Darkest Passion.  Who knew that a fallen angel and a demon could be so sexy?  Aeron falls for Olivia and fights it every step of the way, and when he is unwilling to fight his feelings any longer, that’s when his true nature as a loyal, loving, and caring man comes through.

Self sacrifice and true love are the name of the game in The Darkest Passion.  With sexual tension hot enough to melt wax, Olivia and Aeron’s love story is truly one of my favorite.  I laughed and cried reading this love story and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.  I joyfully recommend Gena Showalter’s newest Lords of the Underworld installment. It will stay with you long after you have read the last word.
