I mentioned in the reveal that I was going to do a more condensed post for Bad Things Play Here, so here it is! If you haven't already heard, this is an upcoming book set in the same universe as the Underworld Saga. HOWEVER, it is an Adult Paranormal Romance, NOT a Young Adult Paranormal. Please keep that in mind! This means there were will be strong language and sexual situations not suitable for a younger audience. If you're wondering why the cover says Seven Deadlies on the side, that is because, while this is a stand alone, I've been playing with the idea of making it part of a series and writing a book for each of the seven deadly sins, which in my universe are known as, you guessed it, the Seven Deadlies. This is not definitive yet, but while talking it over with my cover designer, she really wanted to do something on the side like that so I figured, why not. If I end up doing more with them then this cover is already set, and if I don't...no harm. It still looks really cool, am I right?! :)
Anyway, there are a couple appearances by familiar faces from the Underworld books, but Piper and Reece's (who is Dionysus) story takes place before the start of Unhinged, and just after Spencer and Micah's incident on the bridge. The release date is looking like sometime in June as of right now, but keep checking back for a set date!
This is now up on Goodreads, so please go add it to your TBR shelves:
And here is the blurb again:
You can’t escape destiny…
Piper Anesidora hates her last name, and the Reaper and demon infested life that comes with it. For centuries, her family has been tasked with protecting Pandora’s Box, and ensuring it’s never reopened. That’s why five years ago she ran away, hoping to build a normal life, one of her own choosing. And it worked. For a little while. But now her brother has been taken by Orpheus, a malicious soul who’s escaped from the Underworld, and if that isn’t bad enough, he’s also stolen the box. The sooner she finds her brother and stops Orpheus from unleashing hell on earth, the better. Piper wants nothing more than to return to the mundane existence she’s created for herself. That is until she’s partnered with the one guy capable of making her crave more. She’s always been told giving into sin is wrong, but her ancestors clearly never met Lust.
You can’t resist temptation…
Reece Luben takes intimate knowledge to a whole new level. As the Greek god of lust, he has a long standing reputation to uphold as a playboy, despite the fact he’s grown bored with the game. It’s been centuries since he’s cared about someone other than his maenads, so he passes the time getting people to shed their inhibitions. As one of the few beings who can sense Pandora’s Box, Reece has no choice but to help Piper find and stop Orpheus, even though he’s avoided her family since the start of his second life. But the feisty Anesidora woman makes him feel things he’s long forgotten, and what starts out as one night giving into desire turns into another…and another. What happens when the god of lust decides he’s changing the game and playing for keeps?
