A man's Past leads to his Future......
Agent Stone of the Shadow Unit's job is simple, most days. Work in the Shadows, police his own Kind.
When an unwanted assignment turns out to be his darkest fantasy from the past, Draven can't help but be conflicted by the memories of the past and his responsibilities in the future. But his decision has been made.
The Heart of a woman is Tested........
Jes can't let the tall dark agent back into her life.
How can she trust any man after what she's endured. Years of abuse have broken her down and she doesn't have room for more. The man she turns to for help hasn't abused her physically but he's tormented her emotionally. A past betrayal left her scarred, but also brought her life.
Can she accept him into her heart and trust him again?
One will survive and adapt, the other will realize hearts can be mended even if it’s a bit too late.
The road to forgiveness sometimes only brings more pain. Unexpected events set their lives on two separate tracks leading to one outcome. Lives will be changed and an emotional battle to save their souls will leave them both trapped and enslaved in their need for one another.
Jesminda “Jes” Zealand is sitting at a bar wearing a bikini along with her friend Belinda “Bells” Raine Ignis. They’re two women on vacation. Draven is at the same bar and becomes instantly attracted to Jes. The sexual tension is almost immediate. As you read this book, you will notice that Draven is a take-charge kind of guy. This is the book that gives you a lot of information as to who the people are that make up the Shadow Unit.
One night, while reading this book I happened to be watching a new CW series titled The Tomorrow People. It was a great way to get me into Tigris’ series – a great inspiration. It couldn’t have been planned better. I was reading the scene where Jes meets some people from the Unit for the first time. I could almost feel the amount of testosterone that filled that room.
This book has a lot of action in it – and the suspense is killing me. Each sex scene is so hot that you either need to keep a fan handy or an extinguisher so that you can put the fire out. Tirgris give’s her readers a mating scene that will just suck you in and you’ll be happy to know that our couple take their time to enjoy each other. It’s a sensual ride that you will not want it to end.
Our author has created some characters that make me wish that I could step in their shoes for just a little while – oh the fun I could have. And the action and suspense she creates makes for a great page-turner. There are also a few scenes that are a little graphic – violence wise. So it’s just a warning in case you are a little squeamish. Cruelty besides being graphic will make you shiver – it’s needed though in order to show how evil one of the characters is.
The ending is perfect because it will lead the reader right into book two. This is one reason that this series must be read in order. If you were like me and read Burned in Shadows first, a lot will make sense once you read Jes and Draven’s story. Then we can anticipate the release of her next book. If you like romantic suspense stories with a paranormal twist, you will love Tigris Eden’s latest series.
