**2008 PEARL HONORABLE MENTION - BEST MAGICAL/FANTASY ROMANCE**
He can bear any pain but the thought of losing her.
Danika Ford is on the run. For months she's eluded the powerful Lords of the Underworld -- immortal warriors who won't rest until she and her family are dead. But her dreams are haunted by the one called Reyes, whose searing touch she can't forget.
Reyes is a man possessed. Bound by the demon of pain, he is forbidden to know pleasure. But he craves Danika more than breath and will do anything to claim her. Even defy the gods.
When forced to choose between all they once held dear and each other, the decision could mean death. . . or a love to last the ages.
