The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld 2) - Gena Showalter

The Book
Release Date:  1 June 2008

She has tempted many men...but never found her equal. Until now.
Though she has lived for centuries, Anya, goddess of anarchy, has never known pleasure. Until Lucien, the incarnation of death--a warrior eternally doomed to take souls to the hereafter. He draws her like no other. And Anya will risk anything to have him.

But when the merciless Lord of the Underworld is ordered by the gods to claim Anya herself, their uncontrollable attraction becomes an anguished pursuit. Now they must defeat the unconquerable forces that control them, before their thirst for one another demands a sacrifice of love beyond imagining...

My Opinion  5 STARS

Well this book starts very shortly after the first book finished.

Lucien, otherwise known as Death, is the stoic, calm one of the demons and rarely flies into a temper unlike his friends.  However, upon meeting Anya the goddess of Anarchy, he finds that his temper flies and even the though of another man touching her can elicit a tantrum.

Anya was given a curse as a child by the wife of one of the men her husband had slept with.  Anya cannot be penetrated by a man unless she wants to be bound to him for eternity.  She has lived her life in fear of being taken or raped by a man and losing her freedom.  She is feisty and fun, oh and she has a love of stealing otherwise she ends up setting things on fire.

Both find that when they touch each other sparks go off and they cannot stop thinking of the other.  An adventure to find relics pushes them together and the sparks fly leading them to see what they would truly give up for the other be it life or freedom.
