About the Author

Since she was a kid, Jaime Rush devoured books on unexplained mysteries and psychic phenomena. She knew she would be published, marry a fabulous guy, and win a Toyota Supra. Missing the romance, relationship drama, and action of her favorite television shows—X-Files, Roswell, and Highlander—she created her own mix in the Offspring series.

More About the Author

Things that go bump in the night have always fascinated Jaime Rush. Sometimes those things are human; other times, not so much. Her new Hidden series reveals humans with the essence of gods who walk the knife's edge between Miami and a magical world of passion and danger. Part dragon, angel, or sorcerer, they must fight their own kind, demons, and the lure of their darkest nature.

Jaime is the author of the award-winning Offspring series and writes romantic suspense as Tina Wainscott. Altogether she has published twenty-four novels and five novellas. Contests, sneak peeks and more at www.jaimerush.com.

The Offspring series is about a group of twenty-somethings who live ordinary lives but possess extraordinary psychic abilities. They are the Offspring of parents involved in a mysterious experiment gone awry. Sexy...dangerous...outcasts... They are being hunted by the government and others like them. Together they must find the truth and fight an enemy out to destroy them.

I also have an alter ego. Jaime Rush is a pseudonym for Tina Wainscott, my real name. As Tina, I wrote 18 books for St. Martin's Press and Harlequin, some of which have won Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart award, the Maggie, and RT Book Reviews Reviewer's Choice Awards. I am in the process of bringing out many of these books as e-books under Tina Wainscott!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lachlan McLeod has the extraordinary ability to astrally project to another place or time. On the verge of addiction, Lachlan ignored his father's warnings and it proved to have deadly consequences. Lachlan now lives a life of solitude and doesn't allow himself anything in the way of pleasure as punishment. But the sweet and beautiful Jessie is a temptation like nothing he's ever encountered. Jessie is hiding from a man who has been after her since the day he destroyed her family. After several attempts to put distance between her and Lachlan so he too isn't hurt, they'll fight as one in order stop a man with a power that can destroy them both.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. The main story arc of the series already wrapped up and all the main characters had their stories told. Lachlan hasn't played a huge role in the series and Jessie new. I may have been unsure going in but before I was halfway through, I was hooked.

Lachlan has been punishing himself for months and his brother Magnus is the only family he has left. When a picture Jessie, who his brother recently became interested in, sends his soul into the future to see his brother mortally wounded, Lachlan sets out to save him before its too late. Lachlan is a modern day highlander. He has the Scottish brogue and wields a sword with deadly accuracy. When Lachlan and Jessie alone, he tries his hardest to put aside his rapidly developing feelings for her because he feels it's not honorable knowing his brother cares for her, even though the feelings are mutual. His sexy accent and attractive exterior may have drawn me in but it was his honor and selflessness to help a complete stranger that had me falling for with the reluctant hero.

Darkness Becomes Her is book six in Jaime Rush's amazing Offspring series and though it could be read as a standalone, I suggest reading the rest of the series or you will be lost. The Offspring is one of my favorite series and after reading the novella The Darkness Within I couldn't wait to find out just what Darkness was and how it was going to affect the Offspring. When I found out Darkness Becomes Her was about Lachlan McLeod I squeed like the fangirl I am. Jaime Rush continues to impress and amaze me. She took this series in a direction I didn't expect at all when it started and Darkness Becomes Her had me wishing I had a full day to myself so I could finish the book.

I guess I'll start by saying this book is fan-freaking-tastic!!! OMG, I love this series! It's just so good and even though this isn't my favorite in the series (it's gonna take a lot more to top Cheveyo and Petra's book), it's still a favorite book of mine now. The characters are funny and entertaining, the story is very well written. Not confusing at all for those who haven't read the previous books. Though I do recommend you start with book 1 because you'd be missing some really great stories if you didn't read them.

Lachlan...sigh...Lachlan is the best kind of man. Passionate, loving, brooding, strong, sexy and let's not forget the sexy Scottish accent he got from his mother! Man oh man did I want to eat him up! Hehe I went in to this book knowing what to expect from him. I figured he'd still be the mean angry man from the other books he appeared in. WRONG! Yes, he was angry but damn if he didn't turn all sweet and mushy by the middle of the book. I was almost prepared to dislike him too but nope, I think I love him! Really I do! I just wanted to hug him and tell him everything would be ok, that he should stop placing blame on himself and live...but Jessie took care of that! :) And Jessie, wowee! Aside from Zoe (my fave female character in the series) Jessie is a fave now. I LOVE that she kicked his butt! She's one kick-a** chick but she's also willing to be a little vulnerable and accept help. There's nothing I can't stand more than a heroine that can't accept help when it's offered. Jessie didn't want to but she did it anyway because it needed to be done! That made her stronger if you ask me. With both Lachlan's background and Jessie's background, they were made for each other!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I haven't read all of the Offspring books, but the series is clearly one with extensive world-building that has grown more and more complex over time. But I think this book does a great job of getting down to basics and focusing on a fantastic romance.

Lachlan is a man who lives in something of a self-imposed exile, ever since he accidentally killed his mother while astral projecting. His father died a short time after her death and now the only thing left in his life that matters is his brother Magnus. As our story begins, Magnus is trying to pull his brother back out into the world and tells him about Jessie, the woman he is hoping to start a relationship with. Lachlan suddenly gets a vision of Magnus dead at Jessie's feet --and knows he can't stop until he finds a way to keep his brother away from her.

Jessie is a woman on the run from her past. Ever since she witnessed her uncle killing her father, her life has never been the same. And now that he is out of prison, she knows he is hunting for her. Jessie knows she carries the same Darkness in her that her uncle does, but she doesn't know what it means. Suddenly, he finds her and in a violent showdown, nearly kills Mangus. She is able to save his life, but only by using the dark gift that she knows will infect him too. He slips into a coma as he recovers.

Lachlan decides to help Jessie hide from her uncle as she tries to figure out how to defeat him. He thinks there is much more between her and Magnus than there really is. And he feels like he can find some redemption in saving his brother's girl. But it becomes much more difficult to be honorable as he starts to fall for her.

Usually I cringe from adult virgin heroines, but here, Jessie has a good reason for her chastity.
