Immortal. Colossal. Suave. Indebted killer Dante Blackstone has the world at his feet. Every vice, any desire, is his for the asking—until he finds the one person he cannot have: one sweet, diminutive woman who could bring about Dante’s destruction.
Despite her supernatural ability to heal others, a devastating act of evil has left Hannah Miller broken in body and spirit. As she rebuilds her life while on the lam, a not-so-chance meeting with Dante chips away at the walls surrounding her fragile heart. But before their fledgling love can take flight, Dante’s boss sends an evil minion with one mandate: Eliminate Dante’s new reason to break his eternal contract.
As they fight to survive, Hannah’s amazing gift gives Dante one chance to save them both from the vicious minion. How can any love survive eternal hell and annihilation?
The answer lies in Dante’s inferno.
My Thoughts - Story
A few months ago, I had the pleasure of Ms. David contacting me to read the first book in this series and I immediately fell in love with her characters! After finishing that book, I couldn’t wait for this one because I needed (wanted) to find out what happens next with Dante. In the first book, he is a cocky, arrogant man-whore but with this story, we get to really know what ticks under his rough exterior.
Ms. David did a kick ass job at bringing out the inter most personalities of the MCs ---- It was easy to connect to these two and I absolutely loved the pairing of Dante and Hannah.
I loved how Ms. David took Hannah as such a plain girl and created this complex character who had so much going on underneath the average persona.
Now I can’t wait to find out more about a new character we were introduced to in this book – Ruth.
Dante is dying for his ‘meaningful kill’ but is as much in the dark about it as the other Indebted Killers before they became human again.
With a message to deliver from one of his ‘kills’, Dante for once gets the cold shoulder from a woman who has his heart doing a double timed beat. But what he doesn’t know is that this woman could just be what he has been searching for all his life.
