To become a king of the underworld at long last, William must resist an irresistible beauty—or a curse will ensure his end…

A merciless prince feared by all…

Cursed by a vengeful witch, William of the Dark will die if he ever falls in love—murdered by the woman who steals his heart. His lone shot at redemption is a book filled with indecipherable code. Break the code, break the curse. Now, centuries later, he’s condemned to a string of one-night stands…until he finds the only woman in the worlds able to set him free.

A rare creature of myth and power…

One of the last living unicorn shifters, Sunday “Sunny” Lane works from the shadows as a cryptanalyst, on the run from assassins and poachers. Then the darkly seductive William abducts her, holding her captive in Hell. The closer they get, the more she hungers for his touch…and the stronger a mystical desire to kill him becomes…

But which desire will prove stronger—lust or death? And who will give in first?



Years ago I picked up The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter and fell in love with the Lords of the Underworld and their ladies. Needless to say, I’ve been waiting for William the Ever Randy’s story for a while now and I am so incredibly happy with it! Sunny is the perfect woman for him. She’s snarky, she’s adorable, she’s a feisty bombshell and I am obsessed with her.

Shall I fetch you another chair, or are you done with your tantrum?’ She asked. ‘Fetch. Another. Chair.”— The Darkest King by Gena Showalter

The story continues from the previous books, and the war with Lucifer has arrived at Big Willy’s door. My favorite part of the LOTU series is that it isn’t just one single new plot carried throughout each book, but multiple threads layered throughout the entire series so there’s so many things going on in the background that leads to the next books.

I have two loves, my dagger and my dick. One slays hard and fast, and the other is my dagger.”— The Darkest King by Gena Showalter

The banter between William and Sunny is something that I have truly enjoyed. I laughed, I blushed, there were tears… this book is just everything. I can’t wait to read more from this series.

If sex had a voice, it was William’s. Husky, low and deep, an auditory caress that reached every atom of her being.”— The Darkest King by Gena Showalter
