About this ebook

If you wished Harry Potter was adult and the Black Dagger Brotherhood was smexier...

This series is for YOU.

I hate her as much as I can’t live without her.


I’ve been cursed, and I’m out for vengeance. I’ll do anything to end my damnation, including kidnap an innocent with telling violet eyes.

For fifteen hundred years I’ve been an immortal recluse. Suddenly, I’m tortured by filthy dreams that leave me craving my captive. Worse, once I lay rough hands on her soft skin, I demand things from her I shouldn’t. I feel things beyond the hatred that has consumed me.



And a hunger more demanding than any vengeance.



The second I meet Marrok, my heart stutters. My world stops. I’m drawn to the brash stranger, until…

He abducts me.

He vows to slake fifteen centuries of lust on me.

He commands me to uncurse him—or he’ll kill me.

We should never have met. We’re enemies. Fate makes us lovers. Magic decrees us mates, unlocking secrets and unleashing a dark, paranormal power determined to burn down the world. Unless we band together, we’re doomed.


What’s inside? 

* Abduction

* Band of brothers

* Cursed hero

* Enemies to lovers

* Fated mates

* Immortals

* Magic

* Revenge

* Sex = power

* First time FMC

“Deliciously wicked and sexy hot… Shayla Black keeps me turning the pages!”

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

“A hot, exciting romance filled with intriguing characters and a great storyline. I can’t wait for more in this imaginative series!”

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian

5 stars! “…one hell of a ride full of high chemistry, which was all-consuming, and such a delight and addictive read. …action-packed story that will keep you second-guessing everything to the very end! AMAZING. This book was INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend it!” - The Sassy Nerd Blog

5 stars! “Wow. Just wow. Between the wonderfully written characters and a storyline that will make the reader not be able to put it down, this was an epic tale…that sucks you in from the beginning. The reader will devour each and every chapter and will be waiting not so patiently for the next book in the series - because YES - it is that good.” - The Overflowing Bookcase

** Originally published in 2008, Tempt Me with Darkness has been expanded and re-edited. I’ve added over 15,000 new words and two completely new scenes, as well as embedded lots of Easter eggs. I’ve also rewritten everything in first person, present tense and made tweaks to the storytelling for a deeper, richer experience. As the series progresses, I’ll be diverging the overall plot in some notable spots, so this version of the series will be different.

Book 1 of Doomsday Brethren series starts off with a bang and I can’t wait for more! Marrok and Olivia’s story was a great start to this new world full of magic, steam and an adventure that will have you craving for more. I enjoyed the build up of the storyline that was a steamy paranormal romance story with delicious characters and a spicy heat level that did not disappoint.

About the author

Shayla Black is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over ninety contemporary, erotic, paranormal, and historical romances. Her books have sold millions of copies and been published in a dozen languages.

As an only child, Shayla occupied herself by daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and started pursuing a publishing career. Though she graduated with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America, her heart was with her stories and characters, so she left her pantyhose and power suits behind.
