Many centuries ago... Fatally wounded by his father, Dante Sinclair has only hours left to destroy his family's tainted legacy before he succumbs to the poison coursing through him. Rigidly focused on his goal, he has no time for anything else, until he meets a sensual, tormented woman that calls to his soul in ways that strip him raw and derails him from his mission. Elisha, the princess of darkness, is willing to give up her life to save the world she loves, until Dante Sinclair robs her of the one tool she has to defeat the evil that courses through her veins. The darkness is closing in on them both, and the two tormented souls are torn from their chosen paths and thrust into a passionate whirlwind of sacrifice, betrayal, and devastating choices. *Author's note: Originally intended to be a novella, INFERNO OF DARKNESS ended up being too long and complex to be a novella.
