As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to being in control. He’s also used to people fearing and obeying him. Harper does neither, which unexpectedly amuses him. Unpredictable, elusive, and complex, she draws Knox and his inner demon like nothing ever has. Knox is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He’ll have her, and he’ll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what’s his. He won’t allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make.

Well, tooting a horn here because I'm loving this new book and the direction it's going in. Yes, everything I want in paranormal romance is brimming joyfully here. Alpha hero who dominates with a capital D and quite frankly scares the pants off most! Heroine who doesn't fit into any mold but boy is she more than a match for anyone who crosses her; and then of course there's that little thing called the demon inside that is a whole new ball game. Yes, it's more than fair to say Burn pulled me in and I didn't want it to end.
Knox Thorne (love that name!) is possibly the most powerful demon on the planet but bored and he just keeps moving on. Then like a ray of sunshine comes Harper crashing into his ordered world. You will love her, with her unusual upbringing and impish ways but it's her confidence and utter self-belief that really shapes her. I'm loathe to say too much but there are things in play that are most definitely not straight forward and the mystery and suspense just adds so much to this story. Add in supporting characters that tickled me, from a snarky grandmother to an OCD Lucifer and then there's the Sentinels ruffling a few feathers and even the baddies kept me guessing.
My final thoughts are, I was pulled into this world and didn't want to leave. I really want more and soon! I've spotted a couple who could get their own story but even if they don't I'd be happy just seeing what mischief Harper and her family could cause for Knox. This was a winner for me and it made me a very happy reader.
I was gifted a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
