Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin’s every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.
She is Keeleycael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean her end, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.
The eleventh book of the series is Torin’s story, the carrier of the demon of Disease. Torin, desperate for the touch of another, makes a deal that finds him in a prison, where he becomes acquainted with the Red Queen. Even though she hates him at first, the attraction is undeniable. Yet, how do you fall for a man whose every touch brings death? However, as their attraction grows, Keeley, the Red Queen, is determined to find a way.
Gena Showalter gave me a paranormal romance that I could really sink my teeth into. It had all my favorite things, great characters, a fun and believable love story in a world outside of the everyday humdrum we all live in. In addition, our main characters meet at the beginning of the book and we get to enjoy their struggle all they way throughout the novel. My favorite part may be that even though the couple meets right away, it’s not instant love. They have to work for it and that makes it all the more fun to read. In the end, you’re not sure how they are going to make it work; You just know that you really want them too.
I would definintely recommend this and the rest of the series. I have not read all of the books myself, but I have read enough of them to state confidently, if you’re looking to grab a quick paranormal romance, you can be sure that this will deliver.
