Intensely loyal and yet violently unpredictable, immortal warrior Ryland Samuels has hours left to save the soul of the man he owes his life to, but with each passing moment, he spirals closer and closer to a hell that once trapped him, a nightmare that has been waiting to reclaim him for almost a thousand years. 


Ravaged by betrayal and loss, Catherine Taylor is almost out of time to save her daughter from a place so deadly, so haunted, that no one has emerged alive in centuries. The angel of death will not let anything stand in her way, not even the deadly, haunted warrior on a lethal mission. Ryland needs her help desperately, but she needs his even more...and they can't both get what they want.


Forbidden heat explodes between the two tormented, isolated souls when they meet, a fiery, sensual connection that threatens everything they hold most dear. Will they survive the passion raging between them? Or will it cost them the one thing each cannot bear to lose?

 "Rowe is a paranormal star!" ~ J.R. Ward


Immortal warrior Gideon Roarke made an oath five hundred years ago to the woman who died for him. The ancient Calydon is ruthless in his quest to honor that promise, even if it means risking everything by teaming up with the one woman who will either destroy him, or finally bring redemption to his blackened, hardened soul.


After escaping from a two-year imprisonment at the hands of a madman, the only thing Lily Davenport wants is to go home and reclaim her life. Unfortunately for Lily, standing between her and that goal is a sensual, demanding protector whose dangerous seduction threatens to claim her life...and her soul.


The Calydons Destiny: The Calydons are a race of ancient immortals cursed with a dark side. Each Calydon is destined to meet his soul mate, to be so drawn to her that he is unable to resist bonding with her through the rituals of his race, but their destiny is to destroy each other and all they care about the moment their bond is complete.


"[D]ark, edgy, sexy ... sizzles on the page...sex with soul shattering connections that leave the reader a little breathless!...Rowe lays down some seriously dark and sexy tracks. There is no doubt that this series will have a cult following." ~ Guilty Indulgence Book Club


"DARKNESS SEDUCED is a fabulous story with all the right elements: a strong sexual attraction, a struggle against that attraction, a tender love, a horrendous battle against unimaginable evil and a fight to save the world...This is the kind of story you can't put down because you're so anxious to see what happens next." ~ Jeanne Stone Hunter, My Book Addiction & More


"Dark paranormal romance with passionate warriors, a cursed destiny, heartbreaking sacrifice and a gripping storyline. What I wouldn't give to hear the "crack" of a Calydon warrior's weapon as he protects me...swoon!" ~Sharon Stogner, Love Romance Passion Reviews

One warrior driven by an oath he will give his life to fulfill. Another tormented by his love for the woman he failed.


Haunted by loss, each warrior is consumed by his relentless quest for redemption. Alone, each will fail. But when Calydon warrior Gabe Watson and mage Vladimir Hawkings team up to cross over into the demon realm to hunt down those who matter most, they finally have a chance to change the past …until they encounter two bold, sensual women who hold the key to everything that matters to them…brave, independent women who want nothing to do with them. 


Sophie Flanagan has no memory of her life before she was kidnapped by demons, including how she got the wedding band that burns on her hand. Only her unbreakable friendship with half-demon healer, Maria Souvaine, has enabled her to survive. The two sisters are caught in a desperate battle against a threat so powerful it will destroy them forever.


When two fierce, towering warriors invade the demon realm, Sophie and Maria are thrust into a chaotic spiral of lust, escalating peril, and…for the first time in centuries…hope.
