Sheriff Sam Sheridan takes his job seriously. The town’s safety is his responsibility, and now that hell has arrived, he’ll do anything to keep the darkness from taking over the citizens. He also must fight the darkness seeping into his soul. A vampire bit him while on a mission, and the infection carries a cold darkness he can feel clear to his soul.
Emerald Linton carries a secret: she’s part angel. She can feel the darkness in Sam, just as he can feel the heat of her angelic powers. Emerald lost her husband to a vampire bite years before. She watched him succumb to the darkness, watched as the evil became a part of him – and she wasn’t able to save him.
As Sam fights the evil and Esmerald’s attempts to help him, the town of Twilight is besieged by evil. The two, along with their powerful friends, must find a way to take down a terrible force of Red Demons while maintaining the safety of Twilight’s citizens. But can Emerald save Sam before the evil takes over his soul, or will he sacrifice himself to save the one woman who’s given him Heaven?
Kiss of Darkness was excellent. I felt as though I were getting two books in one. The details, the heartache and the emotion given to the characters only enhanced a finely crafted masterpiece. I didn’t think the writing could get better after I read book one in the series Touch a Dark Wolf, yet it did. Jennifer St. Giles packs an emotional punch that will take your breath away.
I found myself captivated until the very last page. I wanted to cry with these characters, laugh with them and share their hot chocolate (you’ll have to read the book to understand the hot chocolate reference). Fans of Jennifer St. Giles better buckle up and grab onto the dashboard…this book is going to take you on one hell of a ride.
