Forced to his knees in agony whenever he speaks the truth, Gideon can recognize any lie—until he captures Scarlet, a demon-possessed immortal who claims to be his long-lost wife. He doesn’t remember the beautiful female, much less wedding — or bedding — her. But he wants to . . . almost as much as he wants her.
But Scarlet is keeper of Nightmares, too dangerous to roam free, and a future with her could mean ultimate ruin. Especially as Gideon’s enemies draw closer . . . and the truth threatens to destroy all he’s come to love . . .

It’s time to review Gena Showalter’s
latest Yummy Lord Story, which is about Gideon, Demon of Lies, hence the title, “The Darkest Lie.” It’s also about Scarlet, who has the Demon Nightmares in her. From the very beginning of the book to the very end both characters are trying to figure out why they have a connection to each other. They are also dealing with family and friends issues. Scarlet is dealing with a Mother who has hated her since she started developing. Gideon has his Lord friends wanting to know why he is so interested in the prisoner, Scarlet. It’s a love story with a twist too. If you don’t understand Gideon’s language, you’ll probably fall apart from the beginning of the book.
It took me a while to finish this book because I had prior things I was taking care of, but when I finally got the chance to sit down and read it, of course, I had a hard time putting it down. I like Scarlet’s character in the story. She is surely put through hell in the book, and I felt terrible for her and then she is reunited with Gideon, and he is all for helping her out and finding out what happened to his memories.
I also get a sneak into Amun’s and Strider’s stories which are the next two books to come out next spring. Oh, yes! I can’t wait for Amun’s story.
I’m so glad I started reading this series back in 2009. Thanks, Gena Showalter, for giving me double douse of Lords this Spring/Summer. I truly needed that. It made some parts of my summer even better. =)
I guess I should type a bio here. I'm FranJessca or Fran for short. I'm the owner of Book Lovin' Mamas and main Reviewer. I've been reviewing books since I got out of the Navy in 2011. Now 8 years later, I'm still reviewing, but this time with my youngest sidekick.
When I'm not reading and reviewing, you can find me at my day job during the week and on the weekend taking care of our little farm.
