Lucinda has existed for a long time as
demon dead, but she is feeling the weight of all her years.
She misses the simple kindnesses experienced through
interaction with others, where she’s not feared or reviled.
When Lucinda comes across a man that can understand her
isolation, she also finds a man that does not fear her, wishes
nothing from her, but the right to cherish her. However, when
Lucinda is called to perform her duties as Guardian, she comes
across more men who appreciate her, not who or what she is.
Will Lucinda be able to step away from the path she has
created for herself and accept what is offered, or will she
chose to repay their kindness and love with cruelty as she
expects of herself?
In Lucinda, Darkly we find
all the elements that make an erotic fantasy book memorable,
reminiscent of Laurell K. Hamilton’s Meredith Gentry series.
The characters have unexpected depths that surprise us, as
they drag us into their story and make it difficult to tear
yourself away from the action. Lucinda is a woman that seems
to revel in cruelty and pain, but in reality craves acceptance
and love. As Lucinda unwittingly starts collecting “her men,”
we live with them, seeing their pain and pleasure as they
fight to unravel the conflicting forces forcing them apart, to
bind themselves closer together. Lucinda and her men are
scorching hot and you don’t want to miss them. Sunny is an
author destined for the keeper shelf in your library and I
can’t wait to see where she will take us next. Lucinda,
Darkly is not to be missed; the Demon Princess series
has begun with an explosion that will leave you waiting
eagerly for the next installment.
