Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since.
As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?
Sable hunts demons! She's a trained warrior working to keep the paranormals on earth in line. All she has ever dreamed of is commanding her own elite unit and now, finally, it looks like it's within her grasp. War is coming and Sable is sent to aid the demon king, Thorne, and defeat his enemies. It's a new departure for Sable as she usually hunts all the creatures that nightmares are made of but this time she will fight at their side. Unfortunately, Thorne is the most arrogant and seductive male that Sable has ever met! He seems determined to win her over but there's no way Sable is going to fall for his charms . She has a job to do and it most certainly doesn't include time for romance!
Thorne has his work cut out defending his people from enemies but, he knows that Sable is destined to be right by his side. Thorne is more than happy to allow Sable time to get to know him but what he won't do, is let her go! Sable is his eternal mate and somehow he will convince her that her place is with him.
We first got a glimpse of these two characters in the previous book, Kissed By A Dark Prince, and this sequel does not disappoint. The heroine, Sable, is most decidedly feisty and kick ass and really makes the hero, Thorne, work for his reward! She is used to a tough life and prepared to fight for what she believes right. I loved that about her. Sable is most definitely not a pushover and she deserves a male who will proudly stand by her side. Thorne is a complex character and it's an absolute joy to peel back his layers. Whilst he's prepared to bide his time, he refuses to lose sight of his goals and the love and respect of Sable is paramount to him. Two very well matched characters that truly set the pages on fire!
This is a wonderful romance to lose yourself in, but it's also filled with action. Ms Heaton has certainly penned an adventure for her characters to undertake and her world building is such a delight. This book is filled with characters to excite and interest the reader. Fans of her Vampire series will get a pleasant surprise too. If you want a fast paced paranormal romance filled with emotion and heart, then look no further because this book has it all. A joy to read and not to be missed.
