From the Back Cover
So Darius warned her when she accepted a position with his traveling troupe. And gazing mesmerized at the merciless slash of his mouth, the implacable resolve on his face, the soulless emptiness of his black eyes, Tempest was afraid to ask what it was.
She had always been different, apart from others. From the moment his arms closed around her, enveloping her in a sorcerer's spell, Darius seemed to understand her unique gifts. But did his kiss offer the love and belonging she sought, or a danger more potent than his own panthers?
Somewhere deep inside herself, Tempest realized she knew the answer. She had no choice but to accept the velvet stroke of his tongue, submit to the white-hot heat piercing her skin, welcome an erotic pleasure like no other....--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Personally this series is not a favourite and i continue reading purely because I bought most of them after enjoying Dark Prince and Dark Desire. Since these my interest has unfortunately dwindled and this book hasn't reignited it. The storyline is good and there are plenty of characters around to add some variety but somehow this series doesn't quite do it for me. Lots of good things are there but no spark. I find myself disliking pretty much all the males of the series so far and the women aren't much better. The men are far too arrogant for my taste and the women well... (they need a slap). As usual the man (Darius) spends the whole novel dictating to the woman (Tempest) who fights it (sort of) for a while but then gives in cos he's soo gorgeous blah blah. I don't get it.
For me the books have too much description and not enough going on. The characters spend most of their time thinking about their feelings for the other (yawn). Too many slushy endearments and after 6 books I can't stand the phrase "I can do no other...(insert - ensure your happiness, safety, health etc). Also all the women seem to look exactly the same but with different hair - narrow ribcage, tiny waist, full breasts etc and I seriously want one with a bit more personality (they are the same again - little, gentle, wouldn't hurt a fly, feel bad about predator mate killing the people trying to slaughter them all. boring. Give one of them a spine will you.
I did like the sub-plot with Barack and Syndil from the last book but it was wrapped up too quickly overall. This was the best part of dark challenge for me and it ended rather suddenly. Plus Syndil seemed grow a spine and see that all the men were arrogant pigs and then it was just over and she accepted it which was a bit naff.
Don't let my review put you off if you are an ardent Dark fan. From the other reviews I see im in the minority here but in the off chance someone agrees i would recommend Jr ward or Sherrilyn Kenyon and many more before this series. If you take anything from this review it should be don't buy loads of them in one go.
Rusti, or Tempest to give her proper name has been hired as the the troupe's mechanic, to see to their regularly breaking down vehicles. When Darius sees her and colours and emotions are returned to him he see's her for what she is, his lifemate.
Darius is used to being obeyed in everything he decress, his word is the law. Whereas Rusti has fended for herself her entire life and answers to no one, she is a free spirit.
The fireworks when they meet are glorious, on more than one occassion she tries to run from his domineering ways and their obvious chemistry that really frightens her. His fury knows no bounds at her constant disobedience and he is forever getting her out of trouble. Yet he can only show her love and protection.
As we found out in the previous book, Darius is the younger brother to Gregori, Gabriel and Lucian, and boy does it show. In the Daratazanoff brothers, Feehan has managed to created a wonderful family trait of arrogance and domination that simply sings to me. Gregori is or was my favorite of the brothers - this being the second time I am reading the series...However in Darius I think he has a firm competitor.
There is also a lovely sub-story about two of the other musicians who will probably, sadly never have the own story, but we finally see the more of the tenuous realtionship between Barrack and Syndil.
It all makes for a truly wonderful, mesmerising and compelling read!
I am not reviewing the book, (I loved it gimme more!!) because I think first time "Christine Feehan" readers should read it for themselves, but if you love gripping stories, sensuous love scenes, developed characters and not sleeping at night because you always want to read one more chapter Christine is the Author for you.
Christine writes stories that makes me realise why I love romances. I bought the first book by chance (January this year) and fell instantly in love with the DARK series. I now have every book she has written to date and have even pre-ordered her next book in the series DARK LEGEND for Next year. There are six books out to date, and also short story in the series.
I only have one compliant the the stories are too short (even if they are over 350 pages long).
Thank you Christine. Keep the Dark Men coming.....
