New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden spins a dark and sexy new paranormal romance tale…
He’s a man with a beast inside…
Connor Marrok never intended to work for the Seattle Para Unit. He’s not one of the good guys—he’s a real monster, and the beast he carries doesn’t exactly play nicely. But now he finds himself being blackmailed into a new assignment. It’s supposed to be his last gig. His mission? Protect the beautiful Chloe Quick. Keep her alive. Destroy her enemies. Easy enough…until he starts to fall for Chloe.
She just wants to escape.
Chloe is tired of being a prisoner. She wants to get away from her Para Unit guard and run fast into the night. So what if Connor is the sexiest guy she’s ever met? Chloe knows trouble when she sees it, and Connor is one big, dangerous package of trouble. But, when an obsessed werewolf begins stalking Chloe, she realizes that her paranormal bodyguard may just be the one man she needs the most.
Their attraction is primal.
Every moment that Chloe and Connor spend together increases their attraction. Chloe has never felt a need so strong or a desire so dark. The beast that Chloe carries inside has always been silent, but Connor is stirring up her animal instincts. And as the danger and desire begin to twist together, Chloe wonders just how far she’d be willing to go…in order to spend one more night in Connor’s arms.
The PURGATORY Series:
THE WOLF WITHIN – Book One
MARKED BY THE VAMPIRE – Book Two
CHARMING THE BEAST – Book Three
"Charming the Beast" by Cynthia Eden. Connor and Chloe - two lost souls that find each other. Connor, a tough, no-nonsense, controlling werewolf-vampire and Chloe, a sweet, scared woman that's not fully sure what she is. Connor's job is to protect her from those that want her. And there are lots of opportunities for him to protect her. This book is filled with action and danger. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the development of their relationship - a lot of focus was on the story of Chloe's background and who was after her. My heart did break, often, for Connor - he truly falls in love, despite not believing he can. Ms. Eden, once again, does a really good job of entertaining us - a perfect Halloween treat!!
This is Book 3 of the Purgatory series. I would recommend reading the first two, although it is not totally necessary. Ms. Eden does recap but the story flowed better, for me at least, knowing the full stories behind the characters. (Received copy from NetGalley for honest review)
