Don’t make the devil angry…Cynthia Eden’s new series is simply amazing!
Luke Thorne loves having one hell of a good time. As the ruler of every dark creature to walk the earth, he certainly has more than a bit of a bad side. He lives for danger and isn’t the type to lose his heart—mostly because he doesn’t have one. Then she walks into his life.
Mina James is seduction in the flesh, a perfect temptation that the devil himself couldn’t pass up. Too late, Luke realizes he’s let a real siren into his life, a woman who is bent on using his dark powers to free herself from hidden enemies. Since Luke isn’t the type of man to be used, he should walk away from her, but…something about Mina draws him close.
Soon he’s realizing that she isn’t who she appears to be. Not dark and cold, but burning red hot. Mina is a woman fighting for her life—and the Lord of the Dark suddenly finds himself in an unlikely role…hero. Luke isn’t going to let her enemies destroy Mina. He will fight heaven and hell to keep her. But in the end, the secrets they both carry may just rip apart a love that should never have been…
There are Bad Things in the world…very, very bad. Are you ready for them?
This series features an abundance of paranormal and even mythological creatures. Judging from the first book, we are definitely in for a treat!
Mina James has a problem. Luke Thorne is her solution, or at least he is supposed to have her solution. Even though Mina knows what has to be done, approaching Luke isn’t exactly as easy as it sounds, not if the rumors she has heard are true. But Mina is running out of time and if she has to choose between Luke and death then approaching Luke doesn’t sound as bad.
Even from their first encounter Luke can tell there is more to Mina than she lets on but that certainly doesn’t stop him from getting closer. The closer he gets though; the sooner he realizes that her secrets might as well get the devil killed.
I truly love reading book by Cynthia Eden. I just love how she plays with the genres and we end up reading more than just a paranormal love story. The Devil in Disguise was a brilliant start to a series that will feature a variety of paranormal creatures. Luke was an incredible character and I loved his close friendship with Julian and Rayce, his bodyguards (? not that he needed bodyguards but they were damn good) I definitely hope we see more of them and of Luke’s brother, Leo as well.
