Once upon a time I made a deal with the devil. It turns out I like playing in the dark. Over the years, I’ve become someone I’m proud of, someone dangerous.

I’ll never be as dangerous as Malone, though. She’s one of the most feared leaders in Carver City, and her reputation is more than earned. Years ago, we had a single night together and she’s ignored me ever since.

Imagine my surprise to discover she’s scheduled me for the final two weeks of my contract. Maybe I should be afraid. Everyone else fears Malone. Instead, all I feel is anticipation. It’s time to balance the scales, once and for all.

The villains aren’t the only ones in Carver City a person should be wary of crossing.

Sometimes the prettiest flower hides the deadliest poison…

I was both excited and sad for Queen Takes Rose. Excited because I love this series and have always looked forward the next book and sad because it’s the last book in the Wicked Villains series. I read the first book of this series almost exactly a year ago and endings always leave me with a bittersweet feeling. I did enjoy this book though!

Aurora and Malone. I’ve been looking forward to their story for so long. And I’m very glad to say that I consider them now my second favorite romance of the series (Hercules/Meg/Hades will always be my number one favorite). The chemistry between Aurora and Malone was something else. So hot and exciting!

Their relationship outside of the sex was also interesting to read about. Complicated for sure and not easy to overcome all the hurdless but I’m glad they worked it out in the end. I just loved them so much!

I also liked how the author dropped hints to the Sabine Valley series that’s coming up next year. The talk about the amazons and all that made me super excited to read that it. Bring it on!
