His darkest secret is revealed while her greatest fear comes to life.

New mother and Divinity, Lydia Rayners, is no stranger to heartache and loss. Her father, husband, and brother were taken from her by the demons, and now they want her son. Lydia will never let that happen, and she is determined to bring them down one by one—by herself if necessary. Her plans are going well until a certain sexy deputy discovers that she's the rumored demon slayer and is hell-bent on stopping her.

Witch and deputy sheriff, Zach Manus, has run from his past for too long and it’s catching up to him now. He’s determined to keep his dark family secret hidden as he fights for control over his emotions and growing powers. His darker side controlled him once before, and he won’t let it happen again. But the closer he gets to Lydia, the more the darkness threatens to consume him, just as the gorgeous Divinity consumes his thoughts and threatens his resolve.

Zach is powerless to resist her, and while Lydia may understand him like no other, trusting her might unleash a new dark power that could destroy them both and put everyone they love in danger in the process.


Dark Divine is book three in The Divinities series. This series does need to be read in order. The plot continues throughout the series and each couple we meet, meet up and develop a relationship throughout the books until they get their own. 

This novel gives us Zach and Lydia’s story and continues the battle against the demons. Zach is still hiding his true nature from Lydia and the Divinities. Lydia is reluctant to admit that Zach is her fated mated. She’s lost so much and is grieving and fighting in her own way. Theirs mystery, suspense, and insta-love. Secrets are revealed and battles are being fought in this fast paced story. 

It’s a unique world with unique and interesting characters. If you enjoy insta-love and quick past-paced adventures then this series is right up your area. I enjoyed reading the Dark Divine. 

Rated: 3 Stars
