Synopsis: It’s Time To Meet A New Kind Of Hero...
Dante Stark has a dark secret--a legacy left to him by his father which is both a blessing and a curse. A traumatic experience as a small boy gave him special powers of healing, but it comes with a price. Destined to wander the world alone to heal others, he's accepted his fate. Until Selina Rogers forces him to confront his deepest fears, erotic desires, and question his capacity to love.
Selina Rogers has made a name for herself at Inferno Enterprises. She's tough, confident and prepared to succeed. She's also built a world she believes is safe, until she's attacked and then saved by a masked stranger. As he helps her heal physically and emotionally, she becomes fascinated by his overwhelming power and gentle touch. Determined to show Dante the love he's been denying himself, Selina surrenders her heart, and dreams of a future with the mysterious man who completes her.
But will his dark legacy destroy them...or save them both...
What I Thought:
I never read a paranormal story written by Jennifer Probst. I don't think she's written one before this, but I might be wrong. I read paranormal novels written by a handful of authors and I'm glad to say I enjoyed this one too. I mean I really shouldn't have been worried. It's Jennifer Pobst. The woman can write.
I like how the story progressed. When Selina was attacked my heart was in my throat and I found it hard to breathe. It's always personal when a women is attacked and in that moment I felt her pain, panic, and fear. I was totally caught up in the story. I was so glad Dante was there to not only save Selina but help her overcome her trauma.
I do wish one thing had happened differently in the story. I can't mention it because it could be considered a spoiler and I don't want to ruin the story for anyone else. That being said, I read this story quickly. I'm so glad the Dante in my head and the hot guy on the cover match. It's one of my pet peeves when it doesn't. The story ended in sort of open ended and I'm sincerely hoping Jennifer continues with the characters introduced in this book. I see so much potential in this story and would like to know more about Dante, his father, and the source of their powers.
