HE’S EVERYTHING SHE FEARS…
Reporter Annabelle Armstrong will go to any lengths to deliver a story, even track down Quinton Valtrez, a man she believes is a coldhearted assassin. Yet the truth about the darkly sensual Quinton is even more shocking…and the overwhelming desire he ignites is one she vows to resist.
SHE’S EVERYTHING HE CRAVES
Quinton has fought his demonic powers since he was a child. Now using his gifts for the good of national security, he can’t let himself be distracted by the beautiful, determined Annabelle. But his need for her is sudden, fierce—and could soon cost Annabelle her life. For a wicked enemy is out for vengeance, a demon who wants to draw Quinton into a life of pure evil and is willing to use Annabelle as bait. To save her, Quinton must achieve the near impossible: tame the sinister force that is both his inheritance and his curse before it claims him forever.
Annabelle Armstrong, a reporter for CNN, feels that Quinton Valtrez is hiding something; she feels he is an assassin and plans to prove it. When finally meeting him however, she is very strongly attracted to him. Quinton is a half-breed demon who supresses his dark side in order to live a good life. He uses his gifts to help Homeland Security hunt down paranormal predators. He also finds himself attracted to Annabelle, much to his chagrin. They soon learn of an upcoming attack that they both wish to prevent, so they team up in order to stop it, all the while fighting an irresistable mutual attraction.
This book is basically about the age old fight of good vs. evil, but done in an interesting way. I don’t usually read romantic suspense, but I decided to give this one a shot when it was offered up as a blog tour through Hachette Book Group. The romantic subplot is at the forefront of the novel, superseding the suspense and fantasy portions, which made it much easier for me to enjoy.
Rating: 4/5 stars
