There's unfinished business in Haines City...
Cynyr Cree and his wife Aingeal have returned to the western town to protect its citizens from two men the Reaper thought he'd killed. With Cree have come the other six Reapers of his team, sent there by the Shadowlords to help stamp out an impending threat to all mankind lurking in the mountains of the high desert.
Otaktay, the Jakotai brave who once owned Aingeal, has sworn to take her back from Cree and to slay the Reaper before her eyes. Teaming up with Silas Gibbs, another Rogue, the Jakotai will let nothing stand in his way of retrieving the woman he believes belongs to him even if it means becoming a Rogue, himself.
From the blackness of space, the Triune Goddess Morrigunia keeps a close eye on Her beloved Reapers. When She senses death and danger stalking one of Her own in the form of the Ceannus--the immoral network of scientists who had brought the Rogues to Terran shores to destroy humankind--She returns to Terra with vengeance in Her eye and annihilation in Her black heart.
Take another exciting journey to the future with Cynyr and Aingeal.

Cynyr and Aingeal--cool names, right?--are like a firework and match...combustible together.
The Reapers' rule is the instant they sleep with someone, they're mated, and that's what happens to Aingeal with her Reaper husband, and a whole lot else...
When Aingeal was sold by her husband to a Jakotai brave, it triggered some complex events. Her new husband's intention was to kill the Jakotai and another of his kind, two malevolent and illegally spawned Reapers, but that didn't happen and this book recounts Cynyr and Aingeal's hunt.
Now, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book, but I found it a little convoluted. The prologue set me off the wrong way. It took a few reads for me to get into it, and I felt completely lost at first because I didn't realize this was the second book in the series. (My fault, I know.)
I'm not putting a negative slant on this one but I felt the story was bogged down by the fact it's a cross-series read. There were terms that were new to me, terms that made me feel like I was reading another book. It was difficult to look past that at times, as I haven't read the entire collection. Now, I know these details would enthrall me if I had, so my point is, this isn't a standalone. It isn't anyway, as it follows on from book one in this series with Cynyr and Aingeal, but the series doesn't feel like a standalone either.
That being said, I do like the way the author writes and the continuation of Cynyr and Aingeal's marriage was as romantic as always. There was plenty of violence, lots of gore, and I enjoy how the author sets the scene. The romance really shone through. I loved Cynyr and Aingeal together. Cynyr's this hardened warrior, and Aingeal just adds this softness to him. It's very hot. :D
A very good read :)
