The heroine: Jinx – in her past, she was the property of a madman. Now her business and her body were her own. She is a succubus and she owns a brothel, and when she gets some information from someone in the paranormal underground, she knows she is in over her head, so she goes to Asher, whom she has known for over 1000 years.
The Hero: Colonel Asher Brooks – He is the commanding officer of the Immortal Ops and nobody knows for certain what kind of supernatural being he is and how much power he has. He has never used Jinx’s establishments services, but he knew that she was his true mate, but he denied it in order to keep her safe from himself and the things he deals with.
The Story: Jinx lives and works in Seattle. She calls Asher when she finds that she needs help. She had angered Walter Hellmuth, a big player in the paranormal underground and she was informed that he would retaliate very soon. Asher was already in Seattle investigating some major issues at the pier which had to do with Hellmuth.
Asher knew that if he gave in to all of his power could do to a person, it could leave him a shell filled with rage, evil and a need to kill. He kept a tight reign on his power to make sure that never happened to him. Even the paranormal world thought his kind were nothing but myth. He kept what he was a secret from even his own troops.
This book was told in multiple points of view via solo narration and was narrated by Rider. I don’t think I ever heard his narration before but I really like his voice. He has a deep authoritative voice which was perfect for the colonel.
This was a fairly short book, but I liked the story of Asher and Jinx. I especially liked the mystery of what Asher was, what he could do and the control he had to exert in order to keep himself in line. Apparently his father didn’t do that and became full of rage and wreaked havoc because of it. The story was good and I liked the camaraderie between the agents of the Immortal Ops.
