The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Born of a match between good and evil, four siblings stand between hell's minions and everything they want to destroy. They are the Lords of Deliverance, and they have the power to ward off Doomsday . . . or let it ride . . .
Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian, ReganCooper, shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse-he's about to become a father.
Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted-a family.
Ione's third Lords of Deliverance paranormal builds the secondary story line of Immortal Rider into a rollicking ride of thrills, angst, and sexual heat. Thanatos, aka Death, is one angry Horseman of the Apocalypse. Aegis Guardian and OCD sufferer Regan Matthews molested him while he was drugged, and those around him conspired to keep her resultant pregnancy a secret. Thanatos kidnaps Regan, vowing to keep her his sexual prisoner, but her genuine remorse over tricking him to impregnate her so that the birth of their baby might prevent the Apocalypse wears down his resolve and opens the door to a fiery and moving romance between damaged souls. Meanwhile, those trying to avert the upcoming end of the world must cope with double-crossing Watchers, false prophecies, vampires with a grudge, and the ongoing treachery of Death's brother Pestilence. Ione humanizes her leads and also captures the urgency of their mission, resulting in a very satisfying read.
