About this ebook

Ignite your imagination with this immersive paranormal read!

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with a new book in the tantalizing Rise of the Warlords series, featuring a brutal Hell king and the irresistible beauty who upends his world.

For centuries, Rathbone the Only, King of Agonies, has existed for one purpose: recovering the enchanted bones of his slain wife to bring her back to life. He’s never been closer to success. But a new enemy has risen. A band of deadly war gods who have thirty days to destroy her or suffer the consequences. With time running out, Rathbone hires a maddening harpy-oracle, unaware she has an agenda of her own.

Neeka the Unwanted is a fierce warrior on a mission: stop Rathbone and the gods. She’s seen the future if either is victorious, and it’s horrifying. She’ll do whatever proves necessary to forge a new path, even seduce the ruthless royal from his purpose. What she can’t predict? How the intense male will shatter her hard-won defenses along the way.

As Rathbone battles unexpected betrayals, cunning foes and the wild temptress he craves with every fiber of his being, he knows he must choose: hold on to a cold dream or embrace a new flame.

Really enjoyed this book. Rathbone and Neeka's story certainly had a different feel to it but that made it no less intriguing and enjoyable. The chemistry is undeniable and the burn sultry and slow as the story unfolds. I thought that this was a fun read that also offered plenty of action, emotion, drama and twists along with the perfect amount of poignancy to serve as the perfect accent to make it all pop.

I devoured this release Such a great couple. The romance was a slow burn but the tension between these two bled off the pages The banter. The empty threats and misdirection. The denial of their obvious chemistry. The moment they both capitulate. It was done in a way that felt natural. One of my favorite couples. Action-packed from the beginning to the end. With all kinds of fub ar scenes. Some had me laughing others I was a bit worried. Plenty of twists and maybe betrayals? Let you decide. But
