Hades’ Carnival, Book 6
Tilly Ledet has long been a friend of the immortal, shape-shifting warriors who follow the Lady of the Beasts, a willing helper in their battle against Hades. But now that Hades is free and unable to touch the warriors, Tilly is fair game.
When Phoenix shows up insisting she drop everything to go into hiding, Tilly balks. Phoenix is strong and courageous, but when she imagines being in his arms, the protective barriers guarding her heart slam down.
For the first time in his immortal life, Phoenix feels fear. Not for himself, but for the woman whose beauty and forthright nature heat both his mind and body. While one kiss easily ignites her passion, claiming her as his own will take more than heat.
It may require a sacrifice that could send them both up in flames.
Warning: This steamy love story may cause overheating and the possibility of bursting into flames. Read at your own risk.
Okay, this was a very quick read but sometimes that's all right by me. The chemistry this couple share is off the charts and this is definitely a very steamy story. Ms Walters writes excellent paranormal stories and always delivers a very hot read. I like the idea of mixing Gods with Demons and I'm kind of hoping that Persephone will finally get her man to understand love; as trust me Hades is all kinds of mixed up! As for the central couple, well let's just say for Tilly it's not an easy choice. Yes, she wants to touch Phoenix and they do heat up the sheets but she has an awful lot of baggage to wade through. Can she ever trust any man with her heart? Her barriers are firmly in place and it will take a very determined and passionate guy to ever break through. This was a story all about an independent heroine and a hard headed hero.
Flame of the Phoenix was a quick read and I finished far too quickly but luckily there's a certain lonely immortal waiting in the wings so roll on the next book. I'd recommend this to those who don't want to read pages of dialogue but prefer a story that's easy to just sink into. Ms Walters is so good at pulling her readers in and as usual, I'm so looking forward to reading more!
