Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gena Showalter comes a new story in her Lords of the Underworld series...

Forsaken. Deathless. A monster in every way. Mostly, Brochan is determined. He craves what fate promised him - the woman who will help him conquer a heavenly kingdom. He will stop at nothing to win her. 

Viola, Keeper of the demon of Narcissism, lives for a single purpose - treating herself and her pet to the best life possible. But a crazed warrior is now appearing everywhere she ventures, ruining her fun.... tempting her beyond reason and keeping her at a razor-edge of desire.

Though legions of males have attempted to win her, all have failed. Somehow, this rampaging beast is tearing down her walls, one by one, claiming he owns her heart and her very destiny. To be with him, however, she must defeat the only force strong enough to destroy her - love.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new listeners, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Didn't think I'd like Viola's story but I loved it

THIS IS A NOVELLA. It says so. I breaks my hearts that people are giving it a low rating because it was a novella.

Brochan is Viola’s biggest fan. Why wouldn’t he love her?! She only took away his brother’s immortality. Everyone who is anyone loves her! No one has ever been able to win her heart though. They all fall short and Brochan is too afraid to try.

This story was funny, exciting, the characters are broken and defeated and my heart hurt for them. I love the sass and snark! I love how layered the characters are and basically I just loved these two together!

I didn't think I would like this story but I was wrong! I loved it!

The Demise of Narcissism

The story is good. Really reminiscent of Lucien's storyline. I enjoyed this book. I wonder if there will be any other LOTU type stories.

Great storytelling is her norm.

Gena Showalter delivered another great Lords story. It’s been a long while since she touched base with the Lords. Glad to see their story move further along and their universe get a little bigger. As always, loved, loved, loved Max Belmore’s narration.

spent a lot of money for a very short book

considering that this book is worth one credit or $19 Canadian I found it to be very short I story was good but not at the same calibre as her other books in this series I was waiting very patiently for this to come out but I am disappointed. her other books in the series are over 10 hours her books seem to be getting shorter and shorter with the same price, I understand that it does take a lot to write these books and I appreciate the author's time and attention to detail but it just feels like we're stalling with this series and I hope the author reads these reviews and take our opinion to Heart

i feel cheated

The story seemed rushed,and contradicting. I'm not gonna do any spoilers but..it just didn't give off the Lords of the underworld vibe. I feel cheated. the narrator was awesome as always.
