Jolie Benoit left her old life behind to become an agent of the Underlight. Training under Sergeant Wesley Haukon, she's honing her combat skills, all the while coping with the intense sexual attraction she feels for Hauk. She keeps their friendship casual, but when his high school sweetheart transfers into their division, Jolie finds herself grappling with jealousy.
The Underlight gave Hauk a purpose, but he can't escape his past completely. The physical and emotional scars from the fire that killed seven fellow Army Rangers will mark him forever. Jolie sends his protective instincts into overdrive, but he's convinced he'll never be worthy of her love.
Hauk is determined to keep Jolie from harm. But when the Order of Ananke ambushes them with a new weapon that neutralizes Hauk, making him vulnerable, it's Jolie who must tap into her hidden strengths to rescue him - or risk losing him forever....
Sequel to How Beauty Met the Beast.

For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
Therese Plummer did a fablous job as always!
This was the 2nd book of the underlight series. The action, the drama, the passion all roled into one.
I loved when Hawk was trying to PO "Red Hot" to make her learn how to defend herself. His reaction was priceless.
yes! I did!
I cant wait for more by Jax and the Underlight series. I want to see how the relationships play out and who whens the battle.
Why can't real life be like books?
I love Hauk -- and Jolie, of course, but what I really love is the snappy dialogue and original idea for a romance in this well written and entertaining series. Book 2 is every bit as entrancing as the first book and I hope Ms. Garren writes on and on. I especially love that this author is not following the genre's tiresome standard of each book dealing with different set of main characters -- I prefer to be able to follow the characters I love through a series of books. I wish more authors would do this, but I know not everyone feels as I do.
Couple of thoughts: One reviewer for the first book wrote: ". . . I felt a little concerned that beauty is only 17 and working in a strip club." First of all, Jolie is 24 years old, so I'm not sure if that reviewer was reviewing a different book by mistake. Also, Jolie does not work in a strip club -- she is a burlesque dancer, not a stripper, so again -- different book?
Also, there is a great new PR series that is only available on Amazon (so far!) -- it is fantastic and not to be missed. Look up: J. T. Geissinger's "Night Prowler." You can thank me later! (and no, I have no monetary interest in the sales of this series -- just doing a good deed for fellow PR fans.)
The story flowed seamlessly from the first book How Beauty Met the Beast, with sexual tension and characters that draw you in with their wit and charm.
This book introduces Hauk's high school girlfriend as Jolie's competition for his attentions. The sense of jealousy is palpable and offers further depth into Jolie's psyche as she struggles to save Hauk from a new weapon while fighting her own emotions.
Jolie, she's strong, beautiful, and funny.
The book made my heart race as Jolie processed her emotions, and I laughed along with the occasionally sarcastic humor.
This was an amazing sequel, and I look forward to the next and final installment in the series, How Beauty Loved the Beast.
Therese Plummer! She is one of the best narrators out here...
Don't want to give to much away but I will say in the training area...
I loved the whole book it self.... I wish it was longer or the next book would come out and be longer!
When Jolie truly realized that Hauk cared for her.
Just get the book already you won't regret it!
