Description:  In a world of sorcery and seduction, the nights bring out the beautiful, the damned, and the desired. Here, Riley Jenson is on her own–half werewolf, half vampire, working for an organization created to police the supernatural races. Trusting her superiors and lovers barely more than she trusts her worst enemies, Riley plays by her own set of rules. Her latest mission: to enter the heavily guarded pleasure palace of a criminal named Deshon Starr–a madman-scientist who’s been messing around in the gene pool for decades.

With two sexy men–a cool, seductive vampire and an irresistibly hot wolf–vying for her attention, Riley must keep focused. Because saving the world from Deshon Starr will mean saving herself–from the trap that’s closing in around her. . . .

 The book picks about about six months or so after the end of the second one. Riley has been busy training to go undercover. But when the timetable gets moved up, Riley is unsure if she can pull it off. Even though, Jack manages to keep Quinn out of the loop on when the mission is going active, Quinn is smarter than Jack. 

It doesn't take long for Riley to capture the attention of Deshon Starr's lieutenants, or even Deshon Starr himself. He claims that Riley looks familiar, and even hints that he knows her true identity. It's not until she goes to brunch with Starr, and sees what he has in mind for the entertainment. Rhoan, undercover as security is set to fight one of Starr's creations. Riley knows that Starr knows who Rhoan is, and suspects who she is as well. Riley is growing more uncertain if she will make it out alive. 

I'm really starting to love this series. Not as much of Kade in this book as I would like. And I want to see more of Kellen. Still not feeling Quinn and Riley as a couple. And I simply adore Rhoan. I just have a soft spot for sibling relationships. Liander isn't in the books nearly enough either. Hopefully at the end of the series Rhoan will finally settle down with him. 

All in all this series keeps getting better with each book. 

Rating: 4/5
