Hottest Couple of the Week #7: Zarek & Astrid (Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon)

/Cocktails and Books
The Hottest Couple of the Week is a weekly feature hosted by Shannon at Cocktails and Books.  We love to read our romance books and some of those books have a couple that burn up every page you read.  It's in their honor that we have this feature.  Each week, we'll feature a couple who's set a book we read on fire.   You can play along too.  Join our linky, grab the button and share who your hot couple is for the week.  Then post a comment below so the rest of us can add this scorching couple to our TBR pile.

My hottest couple for the week is both sweet, and hot. I haven't finished this one yet so shhh...but from Talon's book you just knew there had to be more to this supposedly insane Dark-Hunter then what we had seen so far.

“I have found my star. She is beauty and grace. Elegance and goodness. My laughter in winter. She is courageous and strong. Bold and tempting. Unlike any other in all the universe, and I cannot touch her. I dare not even try." (Zarek)

That's part of the sweet and the hot...well there was that 69 on the beach as the waves were crashing into them....*fans self* Yeah, that was pretty damn hot! 

Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunter, #3)
Zarek's Point of View:
Dark-Hunter: A soulless guardian who stands between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. Yeah, right. The only part of that Code of Honor I got was eternity and solitude. 
Insanity: A condition many say I suffer from after being alone for so long. But I don't suffer from my insanity-I enjoy every minute of it. 
Trust: I can't trust anyone...not even myself. The only thing I trust in is my ability to do the wrong thing in any situation and to hurt anyone who gets in my way.
Truth: I endured a lifetime as a Roman slave, and 900 years as an exiled Dark-Hunter. Now I'm tired of enduring. I want the truth about what happened the night I was exiled-I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Astrid (Greek, meaning star): An exceptional woman who can see straight to the truth. Brave and strong, she is a point of light in the darkness. She touches me and I tremble. She smiles and my cold heart shatters.
Zarek: They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?


  1. I love Zarek! He's my favorite Dark-Hunter. (Acheron comes in close second) And I loved his story, Astrid was a great heroine for him, they balanced each other out. *Sigh* Beautiful! :D I hope you're enjoying it!

  2. I am loving it, as I have all the other Dark Hunter books so far! I just wish I could keep reading them but I have to sneak between review books. :P lol

  3. Lol I know what you mean, but I tend to put everything aside when it comes to my favorite books >.< I haven't read Zarek's story in a while though, I miss him :( Lol Glad you're enjoying it :D

  4. I love Zarek and he's my favorite Dark Hunter. Really enjoyed his and Astrid's story!

    I'm really curious to know how his son is going to turn out!

    Have a great week!
