His hunger for power knows no bounds…until she binds his heart.
To keep an ill-fated bargain, witch Maeve MacKenna surrenders herself to the scheming Demon Lord Arawn. He's dangerous, arrogant, ruthless, and dominant–everything she should despise in a male, especially after the torture by another demon left scars on her body and soul. She should tremble with terror in Arawn's presence. So why does he make her shiver for entirely different reasons? And awaken parts of her body she believed numb after her assault?
Arawn gets what Arawn wants. But when the witch he's been coveting–for the ancient magic bound inside her–walks into his lair, what should have been simple and straightforward becomes uncomfortably complicated as his interest in her…shifts. A dance of power and attraction begins amid a looming outside threat–because Maeve is not the only one with an age-old force stirring inside her, and the Demon Lord's rivals are all-too eager to seize that kind of power…

Good cover. I liked this one, it was different in a good way.
I read this as a standalone and loved it. Stands strong on it's own if you haven't read the other books.
This is an enthralling paranormal novel portraying witches, demons, faes, dragons, shifters and other worldly creatures. It's a good rendition of equality in a diverse world. Arawn is an enigmatic demon lord. He is confident, powerful and charming. He thrives on power and strives for more. Maeve is a witch whose power has been suppressed. Her sister, Merle is very protective of her and has made a bargain on her behalf. When Maeve learns that her sister's situation is putting her in danger by acting on her behalf, she makes a decision. A brave decision that will change her life! She surrenders to Awarn, hence freeing her sister. She is not very confident, especially after being horrendously tortured by a demon. She is now plagued with nightmares and facing Awarn isn't at the top of her list. The feelings that she experiences upon meeting him are totally the opposite to what she anticipated. He is now intrigued! His priority is to own her powers, but finds himself being protective. Maeve sees a side of Awarn that he doesn't show to anyone else. There is a definite attraction sizzling between them and he has to thread carefully. Her ordeals have left her with physical and psychological scars where being in males' company is a struggle. As he works to unravel the bind to her powers, their interactions become more comfortable. Even playful! Given the situation, can love blossom? Merle and Rhun are having their own problem with the rival witch coven, and yet if fits in nicely with the main plot. Awarn is compassionate and handles the difficult issues with flair. Maeve gradually gains confidence with the help of her entourage, mainly Awarn. The nature of her powers comes as a complete surprise. This is a multilayered story where the plot and the character development are flawless. The banters between Awarn and Maeve are steamy and humourous. It's fast paced, sensual, full of suspense, mystery, magic and danger. I was fully engaged in the whole story. I was kindly issued with an eARC from the author and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
