Parker Adams has always done what’s expected of her . . . until a double agent with nothing to lose ignites a passion she doesn’t dare give in to.
Mission Agent Simon Wells is everything Parker Adams has been trained to fight: manipulator, murderer, spy . . . witch. But for her, what makes Simon most dangerous is his mesmerizing sexual magnetism, powerful enough to tempt even the famed ice queen of the Mission. Though she knows better, each encounter with the deceptive agent leaves her craving more.
Simon isn’t a man to let go of what’s his, and his pursuit forces Parker, a woman he can’t get out from under his skin, to make a stand that could destroy her. If they can work together, they might survive the politics that has enslaved their devastated world—or fall victim to the pitfalls of desperation, bone-deep mistrust, and a hunger that threatens to consume them.

This book draws heavily on the events of the previous installment and while there is a little bit of recap, there is not much. So I spent a little too much time, straining my brain to remember who, for instance, Nadia Parrish was, and where the hero fit in to the Eve project. The book assumes a working knowledge of the world-building and of past events.
All that being said, I think this is my favorite book in the series. The romance was smoking hot. Phenomenal sexual tension and sweltering bedroom action. (*fans self*)
Simon Wells is an agent for the mission, but he is also a genetically engineered witch. He's been placed in the mission as a spy for another sector of the Order. There are, in fact, other witches who have been placed in similar positions. But their DNA is degenerating. And it's Simon's job to take them out cleanly, before they die an ugly death and expose the program.
Parker is the Mission's director and she takes her job seriously. She knows there is something amiss with Simon and Sector Three, but she has no idea how deep it goes. The fact that she is wildly attracted to Simon only makes matters worse.
When Parker's name appears on Simon's hit list, he decides enough is enough. He won't kill this loyal, amazing and dedicated woman, just because she is getting too close to the truth. So the two of them go on the run...Read more ›
This book centers around Director Parker Adams who leads Sector Five is the unit that mainly hunts down the witches. Her unit has been infiltrated by Sector Three and the agents are witches. Simon Wells is a witch who works for Sector Three but is assigned to Director Parker. She knows that he is a witch and has no choice but to accept his working in her unit but she doesn't like it and knows there is more going on then she is being told. She is running her own investigation to figure out what Sector Three is up to and SImon is trying to dissuade her from that since he knows it will put her in grave danger and he is very attracted to her.

Simon doesn't have long to live and he knows it. In fact, he has been assigned to kill the witches before they degenerate completely and the experiments come to light.Read more ›
Being Director Parker Adams should mean something but right now Parker can't seem to get the truth from anyone. She wants to find out who is killing her people and stop them but no one is willing to help. Simon knows more than he's telling her, and she knows it! Parker will find out what is really going on or die trying and it seems that someone has decided dying is what she needs to do.
Will Simon be able to save Parker from the people hunting her? Can he convince her to trust him?
Sacrifice the Wicked is Sexy with a capital S! The Dark Mission series just worked its way to the top of my TBR pile with Sacrifice the Wicked. Parker and Simon share an intense sexual attraction causing enough heat between them to melt the pages. I highly recommend that this series be read in order. There are a lot of things going on in this story that will leave the reader saying "huh?" if you haven't read the previous books. I have really enjoyed Ms. Cooper's world building in the Dark Mission series. It just keeps getting better and better. I love that Parker and Simon return to the dark and gritty streets of New Seattle as they run for their lives. Karina Cooper gives her readers some fantastic action sequences in Sacrifice the Wicked. Between the thrilling action, killer plot and sizzling romance the reader can't help but become enthralled by Sacrifice the Wicked.
