Genre: paranormal romance
Back Cover Blurb:
As a former blood slave, Zsadist bore the scars from a past filled with suffering and degradation until Bella came along and helped heal his emotional wounds. Now, though, with the birth of their child, the demons of his past have been resurrected, called forth by the innocent eyes of his beloved daughter, Nalla. Unless Bella and Nalla can bring him back with their love, he may be lost to them forever.
On its own this was an ok story, but as part of the series it was fantastic. Ward filled in a great deal about the relationship between Bella and Z while also further developing Z as an individual, both in the past and the present. I loved this jaunt back into their relationship that gave me a much fuller picture of this couple and where they stand now.
