"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

If it’s possible for a series to get better this is it!!
I loved the first book! I read this book, expecting the same bond and curse situation… But I was so wrong. This book is action packed from beginning to end, and you’re just happy that there is moments to catch your breath. The story, the characters, the intrigue, and steamy intimacy keep you engaged and wanton for more. I thought I would be done with this series with book2, but I’m super excited that there’s a book3 that I get to read!!!
Darkness Seduced (Order of the Blade)
Very exciting read that keeps one turning the pages all day long.
Book two was a thrilling read!!
I loved the second book in this series! Awesome characters and storyline. Highly recommend this series!
