BLURB: He’s a man with a beast inside…
Connor Marrok never intended to work for the Seattle Para Unit. He’s not one of the good guys—he’s a real monster, and the beast he carries doesn’t exactly play nicely. But now he finds himself being blackmailed into a new assignment It’s supposed to be his last gig. His mission? Protect the beautiful Chloe Quick. Keep her alive. Destroy her enemies. Easy enough…until he starts to fall for Chloe.
She just wants to escape.
Chloe is tired of being a prisoner. She wants to get away from her Para Unit guard and run fast into the night. So what if Connor is the sexiest guy she’s ever met? Chloe knows trouble when she sees it, and Connor is one big, dangerous package of trouble. But, when an obsessed werewolf begins stalking Chloe, she realizes that her paranormal bodyguard may just be the one man she needs the most.
Their attraction is primal.
Every moment that Chloe and Connor spend together increases their attraction. Chloe has never felt a need so strong or a desire so dark. The beast that Chloe carries inside has always been silent, but Connor is stirring up her animal instincts. And as the danger and desire begin to twist together, Chloe wonders just how far she’d be willing to go…in order to spend one more night in Connor’s arms.
Review: Carrying so many scars from his past, Connor Marrok believes he is nothing more than a monster to the world. As a rare breed of half werewolf, half vampire, Connor now has exceptional powers few possess. Forced to do a job for the Para Unit, he has agreed to keep Chloe Quick safe and from harm. Little did he know what was in store for him when he took on the assignment guarding the spunky werewolf that stole his heart and held his fate in her hand.
Finally breaking free from her father, she now finds herself a prisoner of the Para Unit, for her own good. A werewolf that can not shift, she also has an altered scent that drives male werewolves crazy with need for her. Combine that with a wish that a djinn placed upon Chloe so that she’d never die, and now no one knows for sure as to exactly what she has become.
Each installment of this series makes me love it more and more. The plot, the characters, and sizzling sex are just a few of the many strong points about this work. Eden gets two thumbs up for a captivating story that all paranormal readers need to read.
