The Darkest Touch -- By: Gena Showalter

Fierce immortal warrior. Host to the demon of Disease. Torin’s every touch causes sickness and death—and a worldwide plague. Carnal pleasure is utterly forbidden, and though he has always overcome temptation with an iron will, his control is about to shatter.

She is Keeley Cael. The Red Queen. When the powerful beauty with shocking vulnerabilities escapes from a centuries-long imprisonment, the desire that simmers between her and Torin is scorching. His touch could mean the end for her, but resisting her is the hardest battle he’s ever fought—and the only battle he fears he can’t win.

Oh Torin!

You've been in our minds from book 1! You've been a favorite for all of us! I was so excited to finally read your story!

I am so happy to say I was not let down! Lately, I've had so many books that I've looked forward to them so much, and there has been so much hype for it, and it was an extreme let down.

Now, I'm ranking this 4 out of 5, and that one star is solely because I was so over the back and forth between Keeley and Torin. After every single encounter, literally, being "I can't do this to you anymore", "I can't do this anymore", "I can't do this anymore". Seriously, it got old fast. 

BUT the rest of the book else made up for it plus some. 

I remember when I first started the Lords of the Underworld series, I really wasn't all that impressed. I didn't enjoy it near as much as I wanted to, but I swear, every book gets better and better. By the time this one came out, I was so in love with their world and all the guys and all their stories.
