The Darkest Destiny by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really missed the Lords of the Underworld, and even as a novella, I found this refreshing. We know Viola from her co-star role in some Lords of the Underworld books. She’s vain but being possessed by the demon of narcissism makes her that way. She’s also got a demon/vampire/dog/immortal pet named Fluffy that she needs to feed immortality to keep alive. As a damaged person, she’s got some baggage. This presents itself in her fear of being abandoned, which is only made worse when she’s captured by Brochan.
Brochan has his own issues. His brother/son/person had his immortality stolen by Viola shortly after he recognized her as his fated mate. Bummer, right? Well, he fell with his brother/son/person and now he’s “horribly deformed” and can’t allow Viola to harm another by stealing immortality. At odds with one another, they of course must go through some hoops to get their HEA, but we get there and that’s all that matters.
