Last Kiss Goodnight:
THE SWEETEST TEMPTATION…
Black ops agent Solomon Judah awakens caged and bound in a twisted zoo where otherworlders are the main attraction. Vika Lukas, the owner’s daughter, is tasked with Solo’s care and feeding. The monster inside him yearns to kill her on sight, even though she holds the key to his escape. But the human side of him realizes the beautiful deaf girl is more than she seems—she’s his.
THE ULTIMATE PRICE…
Vika endures the captives’ taunts and loathing, hoping to keep them alive even if she can’t free them. Only, Solo is different—he protects her. But as hostility turns to forbidden romance, his feelings for her will be used against him…and he’ll be put to a killer test.
Gena Showalter is an incredible paranormal writer, and she definitely did not disappoint me with this, the beginning of the new Otherworld Assassin series. Overlapping the Alien Huntress series with the idea of different alien races living among humans, this book was filled to the brim with continuous action. There are definitely some Beauty and the Beast qualities to this book, although this time it is the man kept captive rather than the woman. There is lots of action and danger throughout and I loved that the heroine was deaf, yet she never let her disability get in the way of doing what needed to be done. The world Gena built was futuristic, intense and captivating. I instantly fell in love with all of the characters, and I`m craving more of their stories.
Vika lives under the rule of her vicious father, and her dream is to one day be free and free his prisoners from his abuse. But her plan for escaping is going to take some time. Time she doesn't have she quickly discovers as a new Otherworlder is brought into her fathers ``freak-show`` circus. Unable to deny the connection she feels with Solo, she finds it hard to stay away, yet constantly worries that her affection will ultimately lead to their deaths. Without the help of his comrades Solo is on his own, and despite being trapped and kept in a weakened state, Solo is determined to free and protect Vika. Together they fight to free the others, but the black magic her father uses is almost too powerful to escape.
