The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld, Book 2) by Gena Showalter

Loved this book!
The first book The Darkest Night was the beginning of this new series as was not as good as this one IMO. This book centered around Anya, Goddess of Anarchy, who was introduced to us in the first book because she helped the Lords with their issue of Maddox's need of being killed each evening. I've now learned that choice to help was probably more self centered than they knew. Anya has an attraction for Lucien, Lord of Death. He has the responsibility of escorting select souls to the gates of heaven or hell.

Anya attends an event and dances with Lucien. It all starts there! They have a love-hate relationship. Each of them telling false feelings to each other. Why? Because Lucien is scarred and can't believe any female would be even slightly attracted to him. Anya is cursed. She cannot engage in intercourse unless she wishes to be forever attached to the male that she allows to enter her.

They join forces to search for the artifacts that the Titan king, Cronus, wishes for the Lords to find. Cronus wants a special key that Anya holds and orders Lucien to kill her. It's a pretty detailed story.

Love Anya's personality. She's perky and doesn't take crap from anyone, even Cronus!
Looking forward to Reyes story coming out in July!

9/10!

Anya is awesome. I hope we see more of her in future books.
