"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
