From two different worlds… 

Now that she’s escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends—even if most of her friends don’t know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she’s just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger.

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her… 

Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she’s not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he’s not letting her go. Unfortunately someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage.

He’s not letting her go… 

Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn’t know why. When they’re thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.

Linda's Thoughts:
"Uh...are we going to talk about what just happened?" Victoria asked as Drake stepped over to Finn's desk to look at the map layout of the cemetery, seemingly calm about the fact that Bo and Nyx had just disappeared into thin air....
Drake, her sexy mate, just lifted a big shoulder. "Bo clearly does not know how to act around his female. Once he figures out how to, they will be mated soon."
"No doubt," Finn murmured.

HUNTED BY DARKNESS by Katie Reuss is finally here! I've been dying for Bo's and Nyx's story and it certainly didn't disappoint! AND, as an exciting bonus, it introduces new intriguing characters whose stories I can't wait to read either! The appearances of previous favorite characters added to my enjoyment. This whole series is fantastic and, in my opinion, this is the best installment-to-date. However, if it is your preference, this book would also work well as a standalone as Katie seamlessly fills in any needed history.

As the story opens, Nyx's mother hands Nyx a package to deliver to a cemetery to satisfy the favor that Nyx owes her from the last book. Her mother is despicable so everyone knows that this won't be a walk in the park... there's a method to her mother's madness. Bo won't let Nyx make the delivery alone but Nyx isn't happy that others are being put in danger on her account. Oh my! What an adventure and emotional roller-coaster ride this errand turns out to be! All the while, Nyx and Bo are tap-dancing around their attraction to each other....

I love both Nyx and Bo. Even though Bo has been sexually active in the past, he's a newbie at relationships and is clueless as to how court Nyx. Nyx is naive in the extreme as she's been so sheltered. Let's just say that their chemistry kept me glued to the pages. Read it and understand...

Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this read:

She watched him for a long moment, an adorably annoyed frown wrinkling her forehead. "You're obnoxious when you're right."

"I smell?"
"You smell..." He flicked a glance at Bo, who was growling. "You tell her then."
Bo's jaw tightened, but he looked at her with a rawness on his face that completely undid her. "Like roses and sunshine. It makes them want to kill you or eat you or..." He cleared his throat, not needing to finish because she knew what he meant. "It's very enticing."

"I know you're more than fae."
She just grinned. "It's true, I'm part fae, part awesome."

Katie is one of my very favorite authors. With a steamy romance that positively made my kindle sizzle, a plethora of danger and action scenes galore, colorful new multi-faceted characters - some good, some bad and some yet-to-be-determined and an incredible new underworld setting, this installment kept me on the edge of my seat through-out. There was no way I could put it down until I'd read the last word. I would highly recommend HUNTED BY DARKNESS to anyone who enjoys thrilling, action-packed, hot and steamy paranormal romances.
