Blood of the Saints is the newest offering from Denver Rose. This duo absolutely keep getting better book after book, and I'm beyond excited to see what comes out of their twisted minds next. This thriller kept me on my toes and delivered on an amazing new storyline. There was a twist toward the end that was done so well and just made the whole ending come together beautifully. The relationship that grows through the book was just icing on the cake.
Zamira is our take charge heroine, an FBI agent who's newest undercover assignment is threatening to dreg up old hurts and completely derail her life. Whilst taking on the persona "Courtney", Zamira begins investigating a rich playboy who may be connected to some disappearances of other well-to-dos in the community. Zamira's target has her frequenting a night club owned by our intriguing harem: Ace, Theon, and Blais.
Ace is the undisputed leader of the pack, and at first glance is seemingly cold and detached from normal human emotion. We quickly come to find that Ace is desperately unhinged and frequently does a horrible job of keeping himself in check. Theon has loved and lost, and he's exceedingly hesitant to let anyone else close to his inner circle. He's the most in tune with being "normal" out of the three, but that isn't saying much. He's just as deadly as the others. And Blais is a fun-loving guy, the playful one and most ready to give Zamira a chance. But don't let his light-hearted ways fool you; this guy is certified. Get on his bad side, and his obsession with watching you bleed will be the last thing you remember.
When Zamira's investigation interferes with the Saint's own, she's taken hostage by the three. Zamira time with them is a confusing cacophony of self-reflection. She's had a difficult past that the Saints use to their advantage in torturing her. Ultimately, she has to learn that there are shades of evil, and she needs to discover how dark she will allow hers to be.
