Paranormal romances are some of my favorite novels. I can honestly say this is not like any book I’ve ever read before. The story takes off at a rocket pace and never once slows down. That pace was fantastic, as it kept me engaged. As a reader, this is highly important to me. I found the characters to be charming and still vulnerable. Roxanne was one of the best characters I’ve met so far this year. She seemed so innocent and yet still so tough, she makes a fabulous heroine. The romance is still very touching and in some places, almost heartbreakingly sweet. I absolutely loved this book, and am eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.
Roxanne Love has had a very interesting life so far. She’s died four times so far, and come back each and every time. Now, with this fifth death and resurrection, Roxanne has attracted some unwanted attention. A reaper has been following her, trying to get to the one that always seems to get away. The problem the reaper has run into? He’s occupying the body of Santo, a cop who finds Roxanne extremely attractive. Santo also wants to protect her from the evil that’s out to get her. As Santo struggles with the reaper in him, he’s also trying to help Roxanne find her brother. Roxanne knows that Santo is hiding something from her, yet Santo refuses to say anything. The reaper wants to know what her secret is, and how she is able to keep cheating death. Santo wants to see her safe. Can the two sides of Santo reconcile themselves to save Roxanne? Is Roxanne safe with Santo? Or will all be for naught?
She cheated death....
All Roxanne Love has ever wanted is to be normal—marriage, kids, the life of June Cleaver. Because she isn’t normal. She tries to fit in but can’t conceal her ability to defy death—not from the world, not from the darkest creatures of the Beyond and not from the Reaper determined to destroy her. Now Roxanne is on the run, her only ally a compelling, dangerous detective with secrets of his own. Against her will, she's drawn to his quiet strength and heated touch. But can she trust him with the truth?
....until she felt death’s kiss.
Incognito as guilt-ridden cop, Santo Castillo, the Reaper’s plan is simple: get close to Roxanne, uncover the secret of her immortality and cut it at the source. Yet with this borrowed body come emotions the Reaper hadn’t expected. Now nothing is clear but his conflicted desire to protect the woman he came to kill. As destiny forces them to face an enemy hell-bent on using Roxanne to wipe out all of mankind, she and Santo must choose between love....and salvation.
