Story Overview:
Rukh O’ Shay, half-djinn and assassin, is used to taking out the bad guys. But his latest assignment, Sarah White, is nothing like he expected. A glimpse of her bright aura reveals her gentle spirit, while her luscious beauty clouds his mind and makes him long for only one thing—to taste her.
Sarah shares the feeling of raw desire at Rukh’ s touch. He can turn her on with a glance, and satisfies desires she didn’ t even know she had. But Rukh had been hired to kill her—and the only way to save her is to find out who wants her dead before someone else finishes the job….

My Review:
This is one hot little book. Rukh is a djinn assassin who's been hired to kill Sarah. There's a couple of problems with that. The first is that he can see auras and is used to his hits having pretty dark auras. They aren't nice guys which is why someone wants them dead. That's not the case with Sarah. Her aura is light and sparkly and definitely not the sign of someone that needs to die. The second problem is, Rukh feels incredible chemistry towards Sarah. He's attracted to her...really attracted to her. 

Sarah is a reporter in Austin, TX and has no idea that she's attracted someone's attention who now wants her dead. She also has no idea that she should be wary of Rukh especially after he saves her from some muggers. She just thinks he's an incredibly hot, nice guy.

I'll admit, this is a new world for me. I've never explored djinn's before, but they have some pretty cool abilities. Rukh is a half-djinn and can mist in and out of the dimensions. That ability allows him to watch over Sarah without her knowledge. There are a couple of scenes in the book where he uses that ability to help comfort her and I just loved that.

This is a short book, but there's a lot packed into it. Sarah's life is in danger, but you, as the reader, have no idea why. That adds to the danger and suspense of the story. There is also a mystery about Sarah herself. Normally Rukh can access human thoughts, but she is completely closed off to him and he doesn't understand that. Then there is the sizzling romance between Sarah and Rukh...and it is sizzling. This book packs a really powerful sexual punch!

It was definitely an interesting read. I enjoyed it and loved that it takes place in a corner of the paranormal world that is new to me. I love that Mina has introduced me to another hot paranormal being to fall in love with! I look forward to exploring more djinn books!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
