Quinton isn't human. While he hasn't embraced the demon inside, he hasn't fought it either. When Annabelle, a hot young reporter sets her sights on exposing Quinton, she soon finds herself knowing a little too much about this mysterious man. A fire ignites between them and threatens to explode. Will they both set fire or will they be able to do the smart thing and douse it before it spreads out of control?

If you like hot and spicy, relentless romance, this book is for you. Racy and sexy in the best possible way. I absolutely loved it!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Author Rita Herron is an award-winning author of more than thirty suspense, paranormal, and contemporary romance novels including: A Breath Away, The Eye Witness, In a Heartbeat, Last Kiss Goodbye, Say You Love Me, Don't Say a Word, Marry Me Maddie, Collecting Evidence, Under His Skin, Undercover Avenger, Epiphany, Silent Surrender, Silent Night Sanctuary and Up In Flames. In 2007, she was nominated for two Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Awards, including a Career Achievement Award.

CNN News Reporter Annabelle Armstrong doesn't believe in the paranormal. She deals in cold, hard truth, black and white- and she'll do anything to deliver a story. So when she's sent to track down Quinton Valtrez, a man long suspected of being a coldhearted assassin, the truth is even more shocking than she expected. Quinton has been fighting his demonic powers since childhood. Now working for Homeland Security in a private Ghost Cell, he uses his powers for good. Neither one can afford the overwhelming desire they feel for one another, nor can they afford the distraction. Demons want to draw Quinton into a life a pure evil and are using Annabelle to do it. After investigating a series of attacks, seemingly directed at them, they must work together to achieve the impossible or lose everything.

This book is listed as Book Two in the Demonborn Series, with Insatiable Desire coming before and Book Three's title and release to be announced. I was especially intrigued by this story because to me, it was a strong romantic suspense with paranormal elements. I found the characters and their actions to be highly believable and relatable. The setting, which takes you through areas of the south such as Savannah , Charlestown and New Orleans , was well crafted and researched.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Synopsis:
A paranormal thriller and love story, Rita Herron introduces us to reporter Annabelle Armstrong whose current assignment is to uncover the mystery behind the dangerous Quinton Valtrez. Annabelle suspects that Quinton is a killer but must follow him to find proof. The night that they meet, Quinton surprises her. Not only does Annabelle find herself deeply attracted to him, but she watches him save lives during an emergency. Quinton isn't what she'd expected but she has enough sense not to get romantically involved with him. As it becomes apparent that the first emergency was a bomb attack, Annabelle works with Quinton to find the killer before more destruction follows.

Quinton Valtrez is painfully aware of his demon blood. He has been subjected to training and discipline to overcome his dark side since he was a orphaned as a child. Quinton chose a job with a secret government agency that maximizes his skills and innate talents. When Annabelle Armstrong tracks him looking for a story, she becomes a risk to his secrets and his group. Quinton is ordered to kill her. But Quinton rebels and saves her instead.

Throw into this mix, Quinton's father, the demon Zion, who wants his sons to join forces in his play for power. Zion authorizes his minions to take action that will force Quinton and his brothers to accept their heritage.

Review:
As a paranormal romance, Dark Hunger is full of action and suspense. Throughout the novel both Annabelle and Quinton battle their attraction to each other. Quinton doesn't come across as a dark character despite the warnings and his history. It may be that Annabelle softens him or that he hasn't realized his good side.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
CNN reporter Annabelle Armstrong believes she has a strong story involving reclusive Quinton Valtrez; she feels he is an assassin and plans to prove it. However, when she finally meets the enigmatic man, Annabelle feels a stunning attraction to him.

A half-breed demon human, Quinton Valtrez has spent his life trying to control his dark side. He currently works for Homeland Security's top secret Ghost Cell hunting down paranormal predators. To his chagrin, he is attracted to the nosy intrepid journalist.

They soon learn of a pending terrorist attack that each hopes to prevent from happening; to do so they must team up though each fears doing so as their desire feels overwhelming. The evidence points towards demons bent on world domination behind the planned assault, but given the facts Annabelle refuses to believe in paranormal bogeymen until she is captured. Now Quinton has to save the purebred he loves while knowing if he succeeds she will see his tainted soul and her human DNA will knee jerk react by loathing his demonic half.

With a paranormal tour of Southern cities, the second Demonborn urban romantic fantasy (see INSATIABLE DESIRE) is an entertaining thriller starring a disbelieving reporter and a hybrid proof. The story line focuses on their relationship over the paranormal anti-terrorism action making the romantic subplot supersede the fantasy that runs throughout. Still fans of the sub-genre will enjoy the engaging DARK HUNGER.
