Review: Deadly Desire by Keri Arthur

Deadly Desire by Keri Arthur
Publisher: Bantam Books
Pub. Date: March 2009
368pp

Seduction that kills. Pleasure to die for.

She just can’t resist . . .

Guardian Riley Jenson always seems to face the worst villains. And this time’s no different. For it’s no ordinary sorceress who can raise the dead to do her killing. But that’s exactly what Riley expects to find at the end of a trail of female corpses used—and discarded—in a bizarre ritual of evil. With pressure mounting to catch one fiend, another series of brutal slayings shocks the vampire world of her lover, Quinn. So the last thing Riley needs is the heat of the upcoming full moon bringing her werewolf hormones to a boil—or the reappearance of a sexy bounty hunter, the rogue wolf Kye Murphy.

Riley has threatened Murphy with arrest if he doesn’t back off the investigation, but it’s Riley who feels handcuffed by Kye’s lupine charm. Torn between her vamp and wolf natures, between her love for Quinn and her hots for Kye, Riley know she’s courting danger and indulging the deadliest desires. For her hunt through the supernatural underworld will bring her face-to-face with what lurks in a darkness where even monsters fear to tread.

So Riley is back at it again, there’s no time for rest and relaxation in her world. This book is another great addition to the series. I always want to hear more about the sexy men in Riley’s life and how the full moon affects her relationships. As for her current lover Quinn, I love how he’s willing to give Riley everything she desires….what a perfect man and how can I find one that’s undead.

Who is this sexy bounty hunter Kye Murphy? If you have been keeping up with the series, he was introduced in the previous installment Darkest Kiss as a bodyguard. With a change in employment, he’s constantly interfering in Riley’s investigation. What is a girl to do? Mmm… who knows when you have the hots for two men. We get a few surprises in this installment and they are to die for. Do you remember that question: “Can two souls have one soul mate? “

I’m always delighted to see what new cases Riley has to solve and wonder how close to home the cases come within reach of her personal life. This was a quick enjoyable read for me. I look forward to the next Riley Jenson adventure.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
