The Dark King

Gina L. Maxwell. Entangled Amara, $15.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-1-64937-327-4

Bestseller Maxwell (Masked Desires) takes readers on a fast-paced thrill ride from the very first page of her first Deviant Kings fantasy romance. To the human world, Caiden Verran is one of the three brothers who own Las Vegas’s Nightfall Hotel and Casino. To his brothers and others in the know, however, he’s the Dark Fae King, the ruler of an underground court of faeries. Recently laid off Wisconsinite Bryn Meara thinks her luck is changing when she scores a free trip to Las Vegas—and even more so when she meets handsome billionaire Caiden. After a night partying together, Bryn and Caiden wake up married with no memory of the event. Unaware that a master puppeteer is pulling the strings that brought them together, the pair debate whether to stay married—until Caiden learns that the ritual that bound them was fae, not human, and that they are fated mates. Dominant Caiden and feisty submissive Bryn have red-hot chemistry, and Maxwell’s sizzling erotic scenes reflect that passion. Meanwhile, the dark, twisty paranormal plot delivers nonstop surprises and deliciously foreshadows the next novel. This smart, sexy story spells good things for the series to come. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, Seymour Agency. (Oct.)
