Tempt Me With Darkness By Shayla Black

Tempt Me With Darkness (Doomsday Brethren #1)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


He's an immortal knight hungering for satisfaction....

As soon as Marrok sees Olivia Gray's dark windswept hair and burning violet eyes, he's sure they've met in eons past. He's felt her soft gentle curves writhing in pleasure beneath his own hard powerful body...Morganna! For centuries, towering Marrok, once the mightiest of King Arthur's warriors, has endured a terrible curse cast upon him when he spurned the witch.

She's a modern woman about to discover ancient magic....

Olivia shares a mystical - and irresistible - connection with brooding Marrok. Soon after the sexy warrior appears in her erotic dreams, he abducts her, demanding she uncurse him. Their intense passion is more powerful - and intimate - than either of them has ever known. Olivia may be the key to unlocking the diary that will break Morganna's hold on his life. But in the wrong hands, the book also holds the power to destroy all magickind. As they search for answers, a ruthless wizard returned from exile is building an army of evil. When he discovers Marrok and Olivia have the diary, only their love - with the help of a powerful group of magical Brethren - can save them.


I liked all the twists in the book, kept you guessing. It started off strong right from the start. I like Olivia Gray as a character, as for Marrok an immoral and previously one of King Arthur’s knights; he was a little iffy in places. He was pretty darn crazy in the beginning, though who could blame him, being cursed by Morganna and all after sleeping with her, she continuing to torture him in his sleep and believing that Olivia is truthfully Morganna trying to fool him. It is revealed that Olivia is in fact a descendant of Morganna and toward the end of the book it is shown that she possesses some power of her own. It was a bit up and down in places but I really enjoyed reading this, not to mention the hot-ness of the cover, hello muscles! Have to love a man who knows to how wield a sword. I’m a little hesitant giving this book four stars, I would say it was more of a three and a half star novel, I will be reading the next in the series.
