Born with the ability to command the wind, Nicole Bonham spends her life hiding her gift. Deciding to take control of her power, she dispenses her own brand of vigilante justice in Chicago’s worst neighborhoods. Stealth and surprise are always on her side.
UNTIL A CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH A WARRIOR DEMON
Lash demon Gunnar prowls Earth and several supernatural realms to help maintain peace among the immortal species. His chance encounter with Nicole creates a hurricane of sparks between them, and he can’t let her out of his sight until he discovers her true identity. In his two hundred years, he has never seen a creature like her.
PLUNGES THEM BOTH INTO A FIGHT FOR HER LIFE
Nicole and Gunnar race to discover who – or what – is stabbing the city’s most destitute residents and stealing their blood. The fire that forged their bond explodes into white-hot passion, weaving their souls together on an unexpected level. Haunted by the past, Gunnar’s fiercely protective instincts battle with her need to defeat the creatures she was born to fight. As they track the mastermind behind the attacks, will Nicole’s unique talent unwittingly send her straight into his lair?
Everything faded from the room as his blue eyes locked with hers. Sapphire embers flamed. One bedroom. They would share a room tonight, or one of them would sleep on the couch. After last night, she knew what she wanted.
“I’ll take the couch.” His voice rasped like sandpaper.
She shook her head, rising to walk toward the large armchair he sat in, not breaking contact with the turquoise glow of his eyes. Awareness coursed through her body as she remembered his muscles rippling and flexing when he fought off the Vipers, and the way his fingers stroked her into a frenzy of need the previous night. She padded slowly over to him in her bare feet.
“No, you won’t. Not after the way you teased me last night.” She wasn’t usually this bold, but Gunnar affected her senses like no man ever had. Leaning forward, she braced her hands on the arms of the chair. “You’re spending this evening right next to me.”
He stared at her, frozen. She thought he forgot to breathe. Did he need more convincing? “You’re not kissing me senseless and then walking away, not this time–”
Her breath caught as he tugged her arms, tipping her off balance and tumbling her into his lap. He pushed her legs to either side of his so she straddled him. Gently, he cupped her face in his hands. “Hell no, I’m not going anywhere. But so much has happened in the last few days. I want you to be sure.”
In response, she took one of his hands in hers and slowly brought it to her mouth. She pressed a kiss to the center of his palm, and then kissed her way down the length of one finger before drawing it between her lips. Blue fire flared in his eyes as he held her gaze. He had to hear the pounding of her heart as it crashed wildly in her chest. She had invited a demon to her bed, and every cell in her body was on edge with curiosity and aching need.
She swirled her tongue around his finger and scraped gently with her teeth. He inhaled sharply as she began to suck, his eyes riveted to her mouth. With his free hand on her lower back, he scooted her forward on his lap until her core came into contact with the impressive bulge in his jeans. Humming in pleasure as her hips cradled his, she was unable to keep from rocking against him.
That was all it took. He pulled his hand from her mouth and threaded it into her hair. His lips covered hers with a rough groan. Demanding and possessive, he held her in place, claiming her with his kiss.
Her fingertips caressed the sides of his neck, tracing the line of his massive shoulders, and moved down to explore his broad chest. His pectoral muscles were hard sinew under her curious fingers, his abs steel bands of strength. Gently hooking her fingers into his waistband, she felt his lower body clench as he growled and moved both of his hands to her hips.
I must say this was definitely a good paranormal book and recommend it to those who enjoy paranormals. You have demons, vampires, and other un-human creatures. The author straight away sets a great opening to the book and brings the sisters and their special abilities for the readers to see the insight of partially what they can do. Nicole and her sister have decided to use their ability for good because they are not sure what causes them to be so different, so they protect others.
You then go on to meet Gunnar which is one type of demon called a Lash Demon and boy is he sexy (along with his friends) who are on earth to protect. Each of these Lash Demon’s have their own set of characteristics and personalities that makes you want to just read more of them (I do hope we get to get more books featuring these other).
However, the Lash Demon finds out there is something special about Nicole and her sisters and its not just their abilities but the history behind it (sorry can’t tell you any more details, you will need to read the book) but it is their main agenda to protect these girls.
This was the first book I have read by Sharon Kay and I was definitely not disappointed, she took the paranormal romance genre and took you for a ride. The author added some twists to what I have read before with paranormals which made me even more in love with the book and best of all there was some romance between characters, whom do you ask? Well my dear readers you will have to go get the book and start reading it, trust me it is well worth the adventure. I can’t wait for the next book to come out for this series.
I received an arc of this book via the author for an honest review
