Seduction that kills. Pleasure to die for. She just can’t resist . . . Guardian Riley Jenson always seems to face the worst villains. And this time’s no different. For it’s no ordinary sorceress who can raise the dead to do her killing. But that’s exactly what Riley expects to find at the end of a trail of female corpses used—and discarded—in a bizarre ritual of evil. With pressure mounting to catch one fiend, another series of brutal slayings shocks the vampire world of her lover, Quinn. So the last thing Riley needs is the heat of the upcoming full moon bringing her werewolf hormones to a boil—or the reappearance of a sexy bounty hunter, the rogue wolf Kye Murphy. Riley has threatened Murphy with arrest if he doesn’t back off the investigation, but it’s Riley who feels handcuffed by Kye’s lupine charm. Torn between her vamp and wolf natures, between her love for Quinn and her hots for Kye, Riley knows she’s courting danger and indulging the deadliest desires. For her hunt through the supernatural underworld will bring her face-to-face with what lurks in a darkness where even monsters fear to tread.
|I both liked and disliked this one. Finally Riley and Quinn have come together after a couple of books on the outs. It’s seems like they are finally on the path of happy and bam (punch to the gut), Kye Murphy comes to town.
We first saw him in book 5, Embraced by Darkness, as enforcer to the Pack Alpha that Riley and Rhoan don’t acknowledge. He is here as a bounty hunty and they are hunting witches who are raising up zombies to murder teenage girls.
Typical Riley, being around anything with a pulse gets her panties all wet. So when she boinks Kye, that puts a monkey wrench in her relationship with Quinn. Old School Vampires like Quinn are monogamous and very old fashioned, so he isn’t willing to share Riley. The problem is there is something strong there between Kye and Riley, so now we have another triangle.
