Centuries ago, Marrok of Cadbury was one of King Arthur’s most trusted knights.  He was handsome and brave and enjoyed a different woman every night.  All that changed when he made the mistake of spurning the sorceress Morganna LaFey.  With her powerful diary, Morganna cursed Marrok with immortality and never-ending solitude.  Doomed to be always alone, never able to find relief with a woman, Marrok is desperate to find the means to end his torment.

Olivia Gray came to England to find the father that she never knew.  Instead she found out that she is a fledgling witch descended from the infamous Morganna LaFey.  She soon finds herself kidnapped by an immortal knight who believes that she holds the key to ending his centuries old curse, and pursued by an evil magician who wants her to use Morganna’s diary to take over the world.  Along the way, she meets new friends and finds herself falling in love with the same knight who wants her to free him so he can finally die.

Marrok and Olivia soon find themselves needing help and join forces with other supernaturals; Bram, Sabelle, Shock, Ice, Caden, Duke, Lucan and Anka to form the Doomsday Brethren, an alliance created to protect Morganna’s diary from falling into the wizard Mathias’ hands.

Olivia also has to prove to Marrok that she will never betray him as her ancestress did, and Marrok has to come to terms with the depth of his feelings for Olivia.  All of this and they have to find Olivia’s father, who may have answers that they seek, weed out a traitor to the Brethren, protect the diary and find time to strengthen Olivia’s magic by making love.  Suddenly Marrok’s formerly lonely and boring existence has become very exciting.

The first word to come to my mind to describe TEMPT ME WITH DARKNESS is Wow!  Others are amazing, terrific, fantastic and outstanding!  Shayla Black is well known as an author of erotic romance, but with the introduction of her new Doomsday Brethren series, she is sure to win over legions of new fans.  TEMPT ME WITH DARKNESS is a story that seamlessly combines elements of fantasy, mythology and the paranormal with contemporary, sensual romance.  Marrok, Olivia and the other members of the Brethren are richly drawn, fascinating and utterly irresistible.  They will stay with you long after the last page is turned, and the storyline will leave you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next novel in this sure to be addictive new series.
