It's all been leading to this.
Jolie Benoit has become a skilled agent of the Underlight, relying on her savvy to complete assignments while Sergeant Wesley Haukon was out of commission. But an unexpected clue to the Order of Ananke's diabolical scheme rattles Jolie, and she turns to Hauk for comfort.
It's been years since Hauk took comfort from the touch of another person, though his love for Jolie is deep and powerful. Uncomfortable in his skin, scarred by a terrible fire, he is unable to give in to the pleasures that Jolie so desperately wants to grant him.
Meanwhile, the Order is lurking in the shadows - and when they strike, the blow is swift and terrible. Hauk and Jolie scramble to fight for their community, but with the future of the Underlight threatened, no one is safe. And Hauk will never be the same....

I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
Nice! I am curious as to why Hawk's and Jolie's team only has one warrior plus Jolie. Hummmmm that part doesn't make sense. I think if you at least had a few more warriors it would add more depth as well as more action. It is not really realistic that you have what is supposedly a war and the other side has an army and Jolie and Hawk only have 2 warriors. Huh?
But, other than that bit of unrealisticness the story is still good and I am ready to listen to the 3rd book! :)
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
First, I would highly recommend you read the first two books of this series before you start with this book. There is a lot of reference to previous characters, scenes, and plots that took place in the first two books of this series, plus they are just fantastic reads as well.
This book tied it up the story so nicely for me. It wasn’t a pretty relationship that came together and everything fit like a puzzle. Their story was heartbreaking and warming and ugly and real. Hauk and Jolie had to fight for their relationship with the world and themselves. Jolie had to learn to trust in someone besides herself and Hauk had to learn to let someone love him for him. From the moment I started listening to this story until the end, I was right there with them. Every twist and turn, had my tuning out the world to follow their story. I love Hauk. I wish a guy like him was in my future. He is brave, loyal, generous, very passionate and full of life, despite the events that have happened in his life. Jolie is beautiful, smart, sass and courageous. She is beauty and smarts in a package deal. I will not give too much of the plot away but I will say that I cried.
I am I
Yes, but I would recommend to read/listen to the other two books first. This book ties it all together, the first two are "action" "adventure" and "flirting" packed, this was more cheesy romance. I really liked that the author used 3 books to tell us the story, instead of rushing things in one book. Good job!
I like her sexy voice! LOL
I blushed a lot, since I was listening to this while driving. I also cried a little bit towards the end. I was also a bit frustrated (stubborn Hawk!).
YES! It was a great story and it should be read again and again!
Hulk I just felt for him he was a wonderful guy...
I love her performance. I would give anything she performs a chance.
The whole book in its self.
"A Guilty Pleasure!"
Hauk and Jolie are my favourite couple so far in 2013, this retelling of Beauty and the Beast had me grinning from ear to ear, there's humour, angst, determination until you get a culmination of events were you are not quite sure whether they will get over the impossible odds.
Both the lead stars are real characters with an edge that kept me listening, I loved it. Paranormal Romance is a guilty pleasure of mine, there is so much dross out there and here is a series that has put my faith back in the genre..bravo.
I must add that Therese Plummer caught Jolies character perfectly which added to my enjoyment.
"So much fun!"
This one ranks very high among my favourites to listen to. I've listened to it several times and it's become one of my comfort listens. It cheers me up every time and fills me with the warm and fuzzies.
I have a special warm spot in my heart for Catrina, she's so down to earth and warm, loving, funny... And she has all this no-nonsense wisdom.
Therese Plummer is my favourite reader now. She has a delightful voice and she really invests herself in the story. Often in books with strong erotic content, you can tell the narrator is not very comfortable and is holding back. Plummer goes for it, without going over the top, to give a nuanced but sexy performance. Love her to bits!
I laughed a lot and I squealed like the fan girl I am a lot. :)
I don't generally read romance, paranormal or otherwise, as a first choice but a friend made me listen to the first audiobook of this series and now I have definitely taken to the genre. Very, very fun!
