Night Prowler Series, #5
Before the Synopsis and the Excerpt and the giveaway, it is important to look at the cover, Yes look at that yummy yummy man, with his amazing eyes. The only thing that would make me melt more is if he was clean shaven, but you know 😛
Tough, smart, and seriously ambitious, reporter Jacqueline “Jack” Dolan despises the secretive clan of shape-shifters known as the Ikati—and has become determined to destroy them. After she writes an editorial arguing for their extermination and turns public opinion against them, the Ikati vow to fight back. They plot to send one of their own to seduce the reporter, then blackmail her into writing a retraction.
Women practically fall at the feet of hulking, handsome Hawk Luna, and Hawk relishes the idea of conquering and destroying the fiery redhead who’s caused so much trouble for his kind. The last thing he expects is to develop real feelings for her, but their liaison awakens a hunger in him that he cannot deny. He kidnaps Jack and brings her to his Amazon jungle colony, but the two lovers are soon embroiled in deadly colony politics and threatened by a looming global species war.
As the danger around them grows closer, Jack and Hawk’s forbidden passion may build a bridge between two ancient enemies—or cost them both their lives.
From years of habit, she mentally catalogued the pertinent details for later recall. Dark hair curling down to the collar of his shirt, sun-darkened skin, a hard, unshaven jaw. Lips overfull for a man, a nose that was once straight but had obviously been broken and carelessly repaired. And huge, as she first noticed—six five, six six, broad-shouldered, and muscular.
But Jesus—what a pair of searing eyes this hulk had. Brilliant yellow-green heart-stoppingly piercing, as if he could see straight down into her soul. Staring out from that glowering, handsome face, his eyes glowed hot and translucent, like an emerald back-lit by the sun. They telegraphed anger. Anger, intelligence, and dangerous intent.
A jolt of something sharp and electric sizzled through her, straight down to her toes.
Her first thought was: Holy shit, that is one scary-beautiful bastard.
Her next, a millisecond later: Get the hell out of my shot, asshole!
