Captain Garret Reed of the Nighthawk guard has a deadly mission: capture a steel-jawed monster preying on women. He hates to put his partner, Perry, in jeopardy, but she’s the best bait he has. Little does he realize, he’s about to be caught in his own trap.
Perry has been half in love with Garrett for years, but this is not exactly the best time to start a relationship—especially when their investigation leads them directly into the clutches of the madman she thought she’d escaped...
Forged by Desire by Bec McMaster
Forged by Desire is a wonderful paranormal steampunk adventure in the dark and mysterious world of McMaster's imagination.
This time around we are following the Nighthawks, Garret and Perry. Perry is one of the few female blue bloods with a past entrenched in secrets.
Garret has recently been put unofficially in charge of the Nighthawks. He is dealing with the stress of the offices as well as the newly awakened feelings his near fatal injury and Perry's care has brought to the forefront.
Perry has secretly been in love with Garret since the day they met. She has carefully kept her feelings bottled up but with one unexpected kiss her bottle was broken.
There is a serial killer on the loose and the more Perry investigates the more she realizes it mirrors her past and her creation into a blue blood. If she tells her suspicions it will expose her past and the life she left behind.
The story is fast paced and action intense with lots of romantic tension but still has plenty dark mystery boggled with the who's and what ifs.
I have immensely enjoyed every story I've read from Bec McMaster. Forge by Desire is definitely to be counted in that list of fabulous reads.
I love how McMaster ties her past characters with her current storylines, cementing the bond between this story and the series. I can't wait to see where we will be taken next.
I received this ARC copy of Forged by Desire from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 2, 2014.
