Genre: Dark Reverse Harem Romance
Release Date: December 20, 2022
They are my saviors… and my downfall.
I tried to ruin the Lords before they could drag me into the depths of hell with them–and failed. Now, I’m reaping the consequences–vengeance by four, ruthless men who would like nothing more than to rid me from their order. Betrayal is funny that way–one proverbial knife in the back turns their cold, dead hearts even colder.
Until I’m taken by one of our rivals.
My rescue and the subsequent massacre that follows proves that those cold, dead hearts still beat for me–their Lady of Darkness.
And I can’t resist the way their bloodied hands rip me open, barging through every defense I’d ever put up over the years. They’ve awoken a monster in me. I have no choice but to step fully into my new role.
And as time goes on, I have no idea if I’ve fallen for the honorable Lords everyone looks up to–or the vicious Lords of Darkness.
Heroes may get the glory, but villains get the girl.
Lady of Darkness is book two in a dark reverse harem romance duet. It is advised to read the books in order. Lady of Darkness does not end on a cliffhanger, and there is a HEA. Please note: this book is dark. You will love the heroes, and then you will hate them before you love them again. If you’re looking for villains who eventually turn good, that doesn’t happen in this book. They are the antithesis to a romantic hero in every way. Proceed with caution. A list of triggers can be found in the author’s note.
My ARC Review:
The concluding part in this duet – previously Harlow was kidnapped by the Lords and has been being turned into a Lady of Darkness, taken away from her normal life and turned into a killer like them. But she planned to escape by poisoning them, but of course this backfired.
The 4 Lords were hurt, angry and felt deceived by her attempt, they thought they had won her trust. So punishment was doled out, just not in the way she expected, and she did not like it one bit, apologising at every turn, but seemingly unable to make it up to them.
Enemies turn up seeking revenge for the killing of their new boss, and Harlow is their target. The Lords, even though they were upset with Harlow, would rain fire down on the world to protect her, she is theirs, and rain fire they do!
Lots of action, intrigue and suspense with hot steamy menage scenes between the 4 Lords and a Lady, I mean really hot, enough to melt your kindle, with MM scenes to go with the MMMMF scenes.
Harlow takes to being a Lady like a duck to water, she fit in very well, and in fact turns out to be more ruthless than the Lords in the end, you go girl! Great epilogues to go with it as well, would love to see more of these guys with the children as they grow older to see how they all turn out.
Amanda Richardson writes from her chaotic dining room table in Yorkshire, England, often distracted by her husband and two adorable sons. When she’s not writing contemporary and dark, twisted romance, she enjoys coffee (a little too much) and collecting house plants like they’re going out of style.
