crack the impenetrable shell around his heart? As evil draws near, will
Laryssa survive the demon that has come to take her soul?

My Thoughts on the Book
books just keep getting better and better. I really enjoy this series
and the writing has improved with every book. This is Leopold's story
and we really get to know and understand him better in this book and
feel his pain from his past. Laryssa is a human that is special in her
own right and helps to heal Leopold and he helps her. This book is very
sexy and not for the young ones but the story is great and the love
rings true. We get to see all of the characters from the past books as
well so that was an added bonus for me!
