To become a king of the underworld at long last, William must resist an irresistible beauty—or a curse will ensure his end…

A merciless prince feared by all…

Cursed by a vengeful witch, William of the Dark will die if he ever falls in love—murdered by the woman who steals his heart. His lone shot at redemption is a book filled with indecipherable code. Break the code, break the curse. Now, centuries later, he’s condemned to a string of one-night stands…until he finds the only woman in the worlds able to set him free.

A rare creature of myth and power…

One of the last living unicorn shifters, Sunday “Sunny” Lane works from the shadows as a cryptanalyst, on the run from assassins and poachers. Then the darkly seductive William abducts her, holding her captive in Hell. The closer they get, the more she hungers for his touch…and the stronger a mystical desire to kill him becomes…

But which desire will prove stronger—lust or death? And who will give in first?

    Gena Showalter did exactly what a book is supposed to do... take you on journey, make you fall in love and believe that anything is possible. What an amazing read, I can’t wait to read it again already! #bowsdowntothequeen

    This book felt like she rushed the story line, it contained a lot of errors and typos. Honestly the chemistry between William and sundae felt forced and this didn’t quite meet up to par with the LOTU books.

    At least this moves the story forward. Flipped through the first half of the book engaged in their “smart” banter, to finally get to the last half where the story gets interesting enough to see what happens. Editing needed, “past” instead of “passed”, really?! Have enjoyed most of this series, but did not connect with this book.

    William,Unicorns,Sunny,William,Sexiness,Humor oh and did I mention William?! Really I think William is the only incentive you need to read this! I really liked this book too,did I feel at times a little underwhelmed with some things? Yes but it was still an enjoyable read and still love William and I think Sunny is a perfect match for him. Just go read it! You know you want too:)
