Lethal Rider is the latest book in the Lords of Deliverance series from Larissa Ione. From Amazon's website.~
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Born of a match between good and evil, four siblings stand between hell's minions and everything they want to destroy. They are the Lords of Deliverance, and they have the power to ward off Doomsday . . . or let it ride . . .
Thanatos, the most deadly Horseman of the Apocalypse, has endured thousands of years of celibacy to prevent the end of days. But just one night with the wickedly sexy Aegis Guardian, Regan Cooper, shatters centuries of resolve. Yet their passion comes with a price. And Thanatos must face a truth more terrifying than an apocalypse-he's about to become a father.
Demon-slayer Regan Cooper never imagined herself the maternal type, but with the fate of the world hanging in the balance she had no choice but to seduce Thanatos and bear his child. Now, as the final battle draws closer and his rage at being betrayed is overshadowed by an undeniable passion for the mother of his child, Thanatos has a life-shattering realization: To save the world, he must sacrifice the only thing he's ever wanted-a family.
I’m a huge fan of Larissa Ione, so when I saw Lethal Rider up on NetGalley, I was super excited to get an early copy. I can’t say I loved Than in the other books, but did want to know more about him. I loved Than and Regan’s book! Can honestly say it is my favorite of this series so far.
Both Regan and Than are such strong characters and seemed to be stronger when together. I loved Regan from the beginning. She didn’t think she could be a good mother because of her background, yet would do anything to protect her baby…even if that means giving her baby to someone else to raise. However, that can only work if Than stays out of the picture until after the baby is born. It seems that not even his brother and sister can keep him away from Regan and their unborn child.
Things get crazy as Pestilence is trying to kill Regan and Than’s son so he can set off the Apocalypse. All is not as it seems, and Regan and Than soon figure out there are others helping Pest, aka Reseph go after the couple and their unborn son. Of course, Than is royally pissed off at Regan for drugging him to have sex, to conceive a child who could save the world. His anger goes away as he realizes Regan was also drugged and lied to about the outcome to set things in motion. I fell for Than as I watched him go from angry father-to-be to man in love with the mother of his child. Since both Regan and Than have major trust issues, there was no smooth sailing in their courtship, but it was fun to watch the big bad horseman fall in love.
Larissa Ione throws so many emotions at her readers. I was laughing, crying or cursing at any given time while reading Lethal Rider. The official release date for Lethal Rider was May 22, 2012 and can be found at your favorite bookstore or online retailer.
