Synopsis:

Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, inter-dimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.

Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List.

And no one wants her more than Keegan's father.

Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics-the far deadlier, uncontrollable half-when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.
Brynn had no idea that her life was about to abruptly change when handsome Keegan walked into her art gallery and knocked her out.  After waking up in a strange apartment she starts to panic; wondering who has kidnapped her and why.  Little does she know, they are only trying to protect her.

On orders from the council, Keegan and his brothers are hired to track down the evil Mammon, who is bound and bent to destroy the world.  They are charged with protecting the 'heir' at any cost - even if it means killing them to prevent the monster Mammon from raising an army of zombies. 

This was one of those books that was a bad idea to start on my lunch hour; because I couldn't stop reading.  I had to force myself to put away my e-reader and get back to work.  The story of Brynn and Keegan swirled around in my head until I could finally pick the story back up after dinner at home.

These two characters have some very major obstacles to overcome - one being Keegan's evil father who wants Brynn for himself.  Between demons tracking them, a madman who wants to raise an army of the dead, brothers who are just following orders - they manage to fall in love... and steam up the pages with some pretty amazing love scenes.

I look forward to reading more about Keegan and his brothers - and how they each meet the loves of their lives.  A fabulous start to a new series, Rosalie Lario has definitely been added to my auto-buy list.  Those who love a sexy paranormal romance - this is a book (& series) for you!
