CNN reporter Annabelle Armstrong is out to get a story and she’ll go to any lengths to get it. She is tracking down Quinton Valtrez. She is determined to expose him for a cold-hearted assassin. When she uncovers his past she is shocked by what she finds. She is also determined not to let the dark brooding Quinton capture her heart.
Quinton has fought his inner demons since he was a child. He is the son of Zion (one of Satan’s minions) and an Angel of Light. His father is on a mission to make Quinton give in to his demon side and join him in ruling the underworld. Quinton has found a way to use his gifts by working for the government. When he learns that Annabelle is trying to uncover his story, he must do everything to stop her. He cannot let himself get distracted by his need for her. An evil force is brewing, one that could take her life. In order to save her he must tame his evil side before it consumes him.
I loved this book. I did not read the first book in this series but this book can stand alone. I love Annabelle. She is a strong woman who doesn’t take no for an answer. She is determined to get the scoop on Quinton and she gets so much more. Quinton is the ultimate bad boy that most women seem to gravitate towards (myself included). He is dark and mysterious and has and air about him that says I’m dangerous. Underneath all of that though, is a man with a troubled past trying to find the good in himself. The chemistry between Annabelle and Quinton is electric. There is an immediate attraction between the two but they know they shouldn’t be together. It makes me root for them through the whole story. I hope the next book in the series is just as good as this one.
