Country Set in: United States, Texas
Summary: As leader of the elite counter-terrorism team Omega Force, former army ranger Jack “Kell” Kellison is always focused on getting the job done. So when a Houston high-rise is bombed and the governor killed or missing, Kell’s mission is clear: infiltrate the group suspected of the bombing and neutralize the threat by any means necessary. But once Kell meets beautiful chief suspect Mori Chastaine, he realizes there’s more to this case than meets the eye. And more to Mori than any man—any human man—could imagine.
Mori Chastaine is running out of options. Suspected for a crime she didn’t commit, forced into a marriage she doesn’t want, she sees no escape—until Kell walks through her door. A lifetime hiding her true nature warns her Kell might not be who he seems. But he could be the only one able to help save more innocent humans from becoming pawns in an ancient paranormal power play. If Mori reveals her secret, will Kell join her fight? Or will she become his next target?
When it comes to books set in Texas, I am pretty picky. I hate when authors make “assumptions about Texas and wing the setting. Clearly this author has lived in Houston or did her research. She even nailed directions and highways. I lived in Houston for 10 years, and it is a city I do hold near and dear to my heart, so I would have been a little sensitive if she assumed it was all farmland (yes it has happened, I kid you not)
This book was a fun, fast read that I enjoyed from beginning to end. This is a paranormal romance which is not everyone’s cup of tea, but clearly this book is for me. I looked for book 2, but can’t seem to find it.
The Characters– I loved both Kell and Mori, and I liked how Kell was human. Typically the man is always the supernatural one, so this was a refreshing twist on the genre.
I found this book action packed with a little steam, and this book did get major bonus points for nailing the city that I hold near and dear to my heart.
