“This is who I am. This is what I want. Now I need a man dangerous enough to give it to me.”

Graduate student Vivienne Charles is afraid of her own desires—ashamed to admit that she fantasizes about being taken by force, by a man who will claim her completely and without mercy. When the magnetic, mysterious Jonah Marks learns her secret, he makes an offer that stuns her: they will remain near-strangers to each other, and meet in secret so that he can fulfill her fantasy.

Their arrangement is twisted. The sex is incredible. And—despite their attempts to stay apart—soon their emotions are bound together as tightly as the rope around Vivienne’s wrists. But the secrets in their pasts threaten to turn their affair even darker…

For the first time in his life.

While investigating border violence in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, Denver journalist Natalie Benoit is caught in a bloody ambush and taken captive. Alone in the hands of ruthless killers, she will need every ounce of courage she possesses to survive.

Betrayed by another operative, Deputy U.S. Marshal Zach McBride has endured a week of torture and interrogation at the hands of a bloodthirsty Mexican drug cartel. Ready to give his life if he must, he remains unbroken—until he hears the cries of an American woman.

Although Natalie is only a voice in the darkness of their shared prison, her plight brings renewed strength to Zach’s battered body. With her help, he overpowers their captors, and they flee through the desert toward the border, the attraction between them flaring hotter than the Sonoran sun.

But past loss and tragedy leave both of them reluctant to follow their hearts, even when the passion between them reaches its breaking point. Faced with feelings neither expected, they fight to stay ahead of the danger that hunts them as forces more powerful than they can imagine conspire to destroy them both…


If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know that I’m a HUGE fan of Cassandra Clare. Every single book I’ve read from her goes straight to my favorites list and leaves me with a book hangover for weeks. A while back it was announced that a brand new TV show based off her Mortal Instruments series will be airing on ABC Family and to celebrate, both that series and the Infernal Devices trilogy have revamped covers!!  It’s the same content as the current books with the only difference being these books will have extras related to the TV show.

While I didn’t intend for this post to turn into a huge series recommendation I’m going to throw out recommendations for them anyways, just because I loved them SO much (both are 6 star series for me!) If you haven’t read either yet, STOP whatever you’re reading and jump into these books ASAP! These are all YA paranormal/urban fantasy reads filled with EPIC romance, action-packed suspense, and brilliant writing. They’re completely unputdownable and I had to remind myself to eat, sleep, and you know, return to reality while reading
