Possessed by the demon of Misery, Cameo isn't allowed to experience joy. If she dares, her memory is wiped clean. With no other recourse, she sneaks into a land more fantastical than any fairy tale, determined to find the one man with the key to her redemption.
Lazarus the Cruel and Unusual rules his kingdom with a single unwavering focus: to build his army and annihilate his enemies. Nothing distracts him - until Cameo. He is relentless in his quest to make her smile and seduce her into his bed.
As dark forces conspire against them, threatening to destroy the fragile bond they've forged, the once-calm Lazarus grows crazed. Every heart-stopping kiss and wicked touch causes Cameo to teeter on the brink of happiness. But if she falls, she risks forgetting him forever FIVE (HUGE) BOUNDLESS STARS
I officially have a new book boyfriend and his name is Lazarus! I purchased this book when it first came out but didn’t get to it right away, then I decided to buy the audiobook. Which is quickly becoming my favorite way to enjoy books. I am ready to listen again, I loved it that much! Max Bellmore was superb. The Darkest Promise is EVERYTHING! Funny, exciting, passionate, and I didn’t want it to stop. Gena’s wit is unsurpassed! “Her pain was so strong, so shrill she could almost understand a man’s suffering when he had a cold.” Yep, that’s in chapter one and I spit coffee when I heard that. This novel made me laugh so much. I didn’t think that was possible, especially considering the story revolved around Cameo, the keeper of sorrow. But laugh I did. I loved every minute of the story and Lazarus is the dream hero, Arrogant, possessive, protective and loyal, and let's not forget alpha to his very core. I LOVED him. He and Cameo were perfect together. What I can’t wait for now is Viola’s story, I really hope we get that next. Because she is awesome. I am rating The Darkest Promise 5 Huge Boundless stars, I absolutely loved it.
