Really evil bad guys, women with brains, heroes that are usually swimming in the deep end of alpha, smokin' hot smexy times that actually evince character development, and sometimes a touch of the woo-woo stuff. (That's highbrow talk for paranormal elements.) There's less of the woo-woo than in some of her books, but In For The Kill still hits every item on the list.
From shannonmckenna.com: "The risks ex-cop Sam Petrie has taken have turned his life into a train wreck. So he has nothing to lose by doubling down as the elusive Svetlana Ardova’s unwanted bodyguard on her ill-advised trip to Italy. Her crusade against modern slavery has blazoned a bullseye on her chest, but when one of the death threats against her almost hits the mark, Sam’s protective instincts go into overdrive. Every lethal obstacle and trap they encounter ups the stakes—and the undeniable heat between them."
I loved this book, but I will go ahead and clarify something that confused me from the start.
At the time of IFTK, Sveti is 24 years old. It's mentioned explicitly around 30% into the book, but without checking the time frame of the previous novels,
I had a hard time working out just exactly how old she was at the beginning. Normally in the course of a romance novel (and certainly in a steamy romantic
suspense like this one), you don't really need to know, but so much of Sveti's bad juju happened during the series. Plus, readers from way back first met her when she was *twelve*. Add that to that Sam's thoughts about her relative youth and the McCloud Crowd's intense protectiveness of Sveti (understandable though it may be), and I was a little confused.
And now, for the accolades, because I loved. this. book.
Sam is every inch the uber-alpha, and I loved him that much more for it. He reminded me strongly of Connor McCloud (from Standing in the Shadows, book two in the series, and one of my all-time favorite books ever), especially given the nature of his attachment to Sveti. His "in your service" speech hit me where I *live*. Well played, McKenna, well played.
And it bears repeating. McKenna writes some really awesomely evil, horrible, terrifying bad guys. Sveti's ghosts are no joke.
I don't want to give away too much, so I'll wrap up by saying that I'm glad Sveti gets fireworks. All the McClouds deserved them, but I'm glad she got them.
