Josephina is hunted by a brutal enemy—her royal family—and Kane is her only source of protection. He's also the only male to ever set her aflame, and even he succumbs to the heat. But as they navigate the treacherous world of the Fae, they are forced to make a choice: live apart…or die together.

Review by LT
Rating: 5
Kane, once in Zeus' army, was punished for opening Pandora Box and letting out the demons inside. He and his fellow friends and soldiers now have the demons living in their bodies which made them the Lords of the Underworld. Kane holds the demon of Disaster and is often left behind from battles because his friends feel a Disaster will happen. Kane has fallen in the hands of other full demons and dragged to Hell. He’s tortured and raped leaving him a different man than what he used to be. Once one of the sweetest & kindest of the Lords, he now  feels his only way to be whole again is to kill the demon inside him even if it means he will die also.
Josephina or "Tink" as Kane calls her because she is a fae, finds Kane in Hell after her family throws her into a pit that leads to Hell for 1000 years (which only equals 1 day in her realm). Tink, is a blood slave which means she must take the punishments of her half-sister the princess, who also holds the demon of Irresponsibility, so Tink gets punished a lot. She doesn’t want to live anymore because of this and is unable to take her own life, so she saves Kane in hopes he will put her out of her misery. She is also a big FanGirl of the Lords and is star stuck by them. The Lords are the talk of the town in Tink’s realm, stories of their battles are like reality TV for them.
It hurts Kane to touch Tink, but hurts even more not to touch her, but he will do anything he can to protect her and have her as his.
