Edge of Desire
Primal Instinct Series #3
Riley Buchanan is a sheriff of a small town, he has been living on the straight and narrow for years, in an attempt to make up for what he believes his fate is. He has had visions of his fate for years and has pushes away the one woman he loved to keep her safe as he is terrified of injuring innocents once he becomes Merrick and begins fighting in the war against the Casus. As he begins to search for an object known as a Dark Marker, the only things that can kill the Casus he has to face his past and begins to have new fears for the future.
Hope is brought back into Riley’s life once his search for the Dark Marker begins as Hope owns the land he needs to search on. Hope has had a horrible past since being dumped by Riley. She also has her own dangers that are coming after her. Riley soon finds that he cannot stay away from Hope and she soon realizes that hope may be the only thing that can save Riley.
Riley Buchanan comes from a long line of individuals who can become Merrick. These individuals become beings that can fight against the Casus, an evil group of paranormal beings who were banished from Earth a long time ago for their crimes against humanity. The Casus are finding a way to escape from their prison and as one escapes, a Merrick “awakens” to fight them. The Casus are planning on finding a way to release all of their clan from their prison and Riley must put his faith in Hope and embrace his fate to save them all.
Edge of Desire is a well-written book, and a good finale to the series. The author has closed up the Buchanan family portion of the story but I would be very interested in reading more about the Watchmen and the people who aide the Merrick.

Sheriff Riley Buchanan is a good man…but a man possessed. Plagued by vicious and uncontrollable impulses, he lives in fear of surrendering to real love. Even after years apart, he still craves one woman, Hope Summers, above all others, and will do anything to protect her from harm—even tempt fate.
Hope is a woman with her own secrets. For months she has eluded her abusive ex-husband, a ruthless creature who won't rest until Hope and her kind are destroyed. Hope's fantasies are still haunted by Riley, the one man who might help her, and the man whose searing touch she cannot forget. But surrendering to their long-denied passion could mean the destruction of everything they hold dear….
