Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow---but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She's a paranormal private eye and grim reaper-in-training who's known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he's dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes's childhood happens to land in her lap, she can't help herself: She opens it . . . and then the real fun begins. First, Charley finds a naked corpse riding shotgun in her car. Then, a man loses his soul in a card game. Throw in a Deaf boy who sees dead people, a woman running from mobsters, and a very suspicious Reyes, and things can't get any worse for Charley. Unless, of course, the Twelve Beasts of Hell are unleashed. . . .

One step into the Dark-Hunter world and you'll never turn back 'Brisk, ironic and relentlessly imaginative. These are not your mother's vampire novels' Boston GlobeBorn the beautiful daughter of a poor cobbler, Valynda Moore learned early in life that beauty was its own form of a curse in a world ruled by ruthless men who would use any means to take what they wanted. And the stakes were never higher than the night when one man went so far as to steal her very soul and condemn her to live eternity in the body of a living straw doll.Now she has one chance to be human again. To have her soul restored to a flesh-and-blood body. But only if she betrays everyone she holds dear, and breaks every vow she's made.To her, the choice is simple. She'd never hurt her friends. Besides, what use does she have for a human body? Until her enemies use the one lure that even she cannot resist. Now, like Eve in the Garden of Eden, Valynda has a choice. She can be selfless and alone in her cold, doll's body for eternity. Or she can pluck the one piece of fruit she's always longed to taste and become human in the process. But there's just one small catch. Not only will her friends pay the price for her humanity, she will damn all of humanity in her place.The latest gripping instalment in this sensational, rip-roaring Historical Fantasy series, set in the Dark-Hunter World from #1 NYT bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon, 'arguably one of the most in-demand and prolific authors in America' Publishers Weekly'Kenyon boldly goes where no author has gone before and claims yet another genre as her own.
