What I Thought:

I really liked this one. Rita's story of LITERAL demon spawn finding tru love was entertaining and something different for me.

This is the third book in the Demonborn Series. While I would have loved to have read the first two, I think Forbidden Passion made a good stand alone book also. Even if you read this one first you could actually go back and read the others; I didn't find much in the way of spoilers so I think I'll ending up picking up those.

Quick Summary of my thoughts: I liked the characters, the storyline, and the ending. Those of you who like paranormal romances but could do without the sex scenes every other page should check this one out. ( I found it to be pretty laid back in that area) I, personally, thought this one was really good.

About The Book:
(from publisher's website)


SHE SEES HIM IN HER DREAMS...

Fueled by her family's murder years ago, Dr. Marlena Bender has devoted her life to understanding violent criminals. But when a serial killer in this small Southern town starts taking the lives of women in diabolical ways--leaving trophies of his kills on Marlena's doorstep--it all hits too close to home. Terrified, Marlena turns to the only man she can trust...the man who saved her life.

BUT HIS SECRET IS HER WORST NIGHTMARE...

Sheriff Dante Valtrez would move heaven and earth to keep Marlena safe, but he's not the savior she thinks he is. A dark legacy runs through his blood and a dangerous secret lies within him. Now a fierce, hot, ruthless desire draws Dante and Marlena together--as a demonic force from his past threatens to rip them apart, destroying everything they hold dear.
