From the Inside Flap

There was a whisper--a familiar one--of cotton against flesh.
 
Turning his head slightly, he watched something black and soft fall to the floor.
 
His T-shirt.
 
His heart jumped into his throat, lodged there for about five seconds and made it impossible to breathe. Then it settled back in his chest, beating about two hundred beats a minute, he figured as he shut the dishwasher, still staring at the puddle of black cotton on the floor in front of him.
 
His palms were sweating as he lifted his head and stared at Sylvia, standing eighteen inches away, wearing nothing more than her damp hair and that devilish, cocky little smile.
 
"I don't get seduced," she said quietly. "I might decide to seduce somebody, or I might just decide to have wild and crazy sex with them. But I don't get seduced."
 
She closed the distance between them and reached out, trailed her fingers along the front of his shirt. "You still want to go for a run, Toronto?"
 
He couldn't speak. For the life of him, he couldn't say a damn word.
 
So instead, he gathered that dark, silky hair in one hand and slanted his mouth over hers. As she met his kiss, he wrapped his free arm around her waist and hauled her against him. Naked, her skin still warm from the bath, she fit him perfectly, those amazing curves aligning next to his body like she'd been made for him.
 
He growled against her lips as she rocked against him.
 
"I thought you said no grabby hands," he muttered against her mouth.
 
"I wasn't being completely honest . . . I planned to do plenty of grabbing. I just wanted to do it my way." She pulled back a fraction, staring into his eyes, clear challenge written on her face. "Is that a problem?"
 
She was in his arms, naked. "Hell, no."
 
"Good." A pleased smile curled her lips as she stroked her hands along his waist, then dipped them under his shirt, pushing it up as she went until she could strip it away completely.
 
As it fell to the floor by the other one, she eased back, staring into his eyes for a long moment before lowering her gaze. Toronto held still as she lifted her hands and curved them over his shoulders, stroking down, her fingers learning the planes and ridges of his body. When she reached the small ring piercing his left nipple, she paused. Lifting a brow, she touched it, tugging it lightly. "Silver, Toronto?"
 
He shrugged. "I got bored one night."
 
"So you pierced yourself with silver. You trying to poison yourself?" She continued to toy with it, her skeptical gaze lingering on his face.
 
"I'm too strong for that little bit to poison me." He grinned at her, trying not to react while she played with the ring. It shouldn't feel that damn good, he knew it. But while he was too strong for the ring to poison him, that bit of silver piercing his flesh did make him damn sensitive there and it was almost painfully erotic to have her tugging on it like that.
 
"So you did this because you were bored?" A wicked grin curved her lips. "You get bored a lot? What else did you pierce?"
 
Her gaze dropped low and a visceral, blistering punch of heat raced through him even as he instinctively winced. "Not there, sweetheart."

Hunter's Rise by Shiloh Walker
Paranormal Romance - April 3rd, 2012
4 ½ stars

Shiloh Walker's latest electrifying Hunter romance builds upon the previous books but can easily be read by itself.

Toronto's past eludes him. He was turned into a werewolf and adopted by a powerful witch. Now he is a Hunter, one who protects humans as well as paranormal creatures. But he is tortured by the blanks in his memories and seeks to vent his frustrations. A bit of a rebel, he is being threatened to be kicked out of his current base where he patrols. He is restless and unfocused until his next assignment -stopping and capturing the mercenary Sylvia James. Toronto is captured by her beauty and feels drawn to her for Sylvia is a beautiful vampire female vigilante who is cunning and mysterious.

Sylvia James is a mercenary for hire, but she picks her jobs carefully and does the work that others cannot do. She prides herself on bringing justice to those in need but little does she realize that her actions are being followed. For the Hunters want to prevent her from killing her next mark. And When Toronto and Sylvia meet, it is like oil and fire...smoldering heat.

This was a fabulous read. Not only does the author have a rich cast of old and new characters but the world is complex, compelling, and addictive. The passion that flares between Toronto and Sylvia is super hot. I couldn't wait for them to get together. Both are extremely controlled, alpha characters confident in their powers and sexuality. But while both are strong, they carry painful pasts. Both are wounded characters who show rare vulnerability to each other.

Fantasy meets gritty mystery in this story told in many personalities' points of view. The author tells their story through different voices as time unfolds for the witches, werewolves and vampires in this story. The humans that fill the world show up in different interactions with the non-mortals, they never have a POV voice but that is never missed as the story quickly takes you away in a tsunami of action.
The romantic aspect is subtle and in sensible places as the mystery unfolds. It does explain why a vampire (Sylvia) and a werewolf (Toronto) would trust each other enough to work together although they seem to be total strangers. I liked that the mystery unfolds with the building love and then I won't spoil the ending, but the mystery is solved about 50 pages before the actual ending of the book which gives enough time to find real closure for the main characters. I would have liked to have Rafe's or Angel's love story told in an other book because I felt close to them although they show up only a little in this novel.
Mostly set in Memphis and the United states, although Canada does make a little cameo with the city of Toronto. In this world, Vampires and Werewolves can get along and become lovers although it doesn't seem to happen often. There are also witches, human/vamp hybrids and natural shape-shifters. The non-mortals try to live a undercover existence from the mortal world and 'Hunters' clean up the riff-raff feral fantasy folks before they can make a spectacle and clue the humans into their existence.
I got to read this early when I won the book in one of Goodread's giveaways. I would recommend this to readers that like werewolves, vampires, gritty mysteries with a touch of romance. This is not erotica although there is mention of some seriously deviant pervy characters in the story, the sex scenes are fairly tender and vanilla sweet.

A century ago, Sylvia James was forcibly changed into a vampire. That predatory violence has become a rallying cry for her as she travels as a mostly hired assassin taking down evil. However, she has a code of ethics when accepting a client; including no lying; as Faith Dwyer learns when she tried to employ Sylvia to kill her husband. She also does personal not for profit jobs to kill the psychopaths hunting others.

Hired by the parents of a victim Toby, Sylvia travels to Memphis to kill Alan Pulaski, pedophile. A local enclave of Hunters is also after the same thug. The difference is in the outcome as Sylvia will assassinate the predator while the Hunters will turn him over to the cops; with one exception enigmatic two century at least old Toronto the renegade werewolf Hunter who will first beat the crap out of Pulaski. When Sylvia and Toronto meet, each is shocked by their attraction as both thought their respective hearts died over a century ago. After getting in each other's way, they team up to hunt a predator.

The latest Hunter romantic urban fantasy (see Hunter's Salvation, and Hunters: Heart and Soul) is a superb entry due to the lead characters, who share in common desire, outcast status and a disgust with falling in love. As they fall in love, they struggle to keep their eye on the mission but remain diligent to end a reign of terror. Sub-genre fans will enjoy this exciting fast-paced thriller with a fabulous late twist.
