Ryder. The man was just as sexy as she remembered him:
tall, lean, and dangerous, a demon hunter with the body of a god.…
But archaeologist Angelique Deveraux has little time for lust. She’s been hiding a gleaming black diamond, a prize everyone wants—including Ryder—and now she’s running for her life. Hot on her trail is Ryder, a legendary demon hunter she desires but can’t quite trust, a man with an insatiable need for danger and a few dark secrets of his own.
As sparks ignite between the rogue hunter and his latest prey, Angie’s world is rocked again when her twin sister vanishes, stolen away by the same dark forces stalking Angie and the black diamond. With Ryder offering protection—and more—suddenly a woman who’s never trusted anyone is falling for a man who isn’t afraid of anything…except losing his heart. Now, as an all-out demon war erupts and Angie’s family secrets unravel, Ryder’s demon hunt and Angie’s quest to save her sister are about to collide. And when they do, it’ll send these two wary hearts on the wildest adventure of their lives—and maybe even save humankind in the process.…
The Darkest Touch is AWESOME! I love Jaci’s demon series because it gives you a little bit of everything. You get intrigue, romance and a little humor along with some hot passionate scenes. Plus I love how she sets you up for the next book. Sneaky is our Jaci! J She has me wanting the next book RIGHT after I finish the one I’m reading.
Ryder is smoking hot with a touch of danger and that is just how I like my men. He has a military background which is hot unto itself! He tries to be angry at Angie, but he just can’t stay away from her.
Angelique is complex with problems of her own, but man she is kick ass. I love kick ass heroines and Jaci sure knows how to write them. I think that is why I am drawn to Jaci’s books, the heroine holding her own.
The Darkest Touch is a must read and if you haven’t read the first two…what are you waiting for! Go get them all so you are caught up for the next book. Here they are listed in order.
