This is the third novel in Rosalie Larios Demon of Infernum series. This is a fast and exciting series that is highly sensual and full of fun. Ronin is one of four brothers who work for the council as inter dimensional bounty hunters. It's their job to hunt down and bring to justice rogue supernaturals who place the balance of the worlds in jeopardy. These strong sexy men each possess demon abilities coupled with something else. In Ronins case he is half demon and half angel as his evil demon father raped his angelic mother. It's only recently that Ronin and his brothers have been able to track down and imprison their father in Infernum. The four brothers have made their home here on Earth and two have already found a woman to love but Ronin is still looking for something more.
Amara is a succubus feared by all men as her kiss could literally bring death. Trapped by her powers and under the control of the incubus Asmodeus she is constantly sent out to harness the life force and powers of unsuspecting supernaturals. One night she is drawn to the o so tempting Ronin and almost kills him with her succubus powers. His brothers and their friend Cresso manage to save him but Ronin is left angry, hurt and aching for the beautiful woman who nearly robbed him of his life. His angelic powers have been reduced and he is no longer able to induce a calming influence over his enemies.
The council learn that Asmodeus is up to no good and although not sure how far his nefarious actions have taken him they send the four brothers to bring him in for questioning. Whilst staking out his home Ronin sees Amara leaving the building and manages to capture her. Believing her guilty of conspiring to kill, Ronin and his brothers think to use her as leverage against Asmodeus but it's soon clear that Amara is only a pawn in his game. Furthermore as she is controlled magically by the incubus as he can hasten her hunger for sex and ultimately kill her. Ronin is falling hard for Amara but as she's a succubus she can only safely feed from another sex demon. As things spiral out of control it's imperative that they capture Asmodeus before it's too late for Amara but will Ronin be able to keep his hands off her or will their shared hunger be too much. The brothers will face even more danger than they realise as unknown sinister forces are at work.
Wow what a sexy read! Much more steam than I was expecting but then Amara is a succubus! Lots of sexual tension and heat but also a strong emotional link between the couple. Love the strong family bond between the brothers and the women in their lives helped to humanise them. Very curious about Cresso and hope to get to know more about him and his backstory in future books. Also a possible love interest is introduced for the remaining brother Dagen.
So overall this was a hot and exciting read with lots of action. Passionate but with a touch of angst and a villain that deserves his comeuppance.
