I loved the first one in this series (The Cursed) and cannot WAIT to see what’s up with Luke and Rio. The pair of them sound like they’re in some seriously hot water in this second installment. However, I hope that they really don’t learn to control those “fires of passion” — hot is GOOD!
While I like the pair walking down a street with the city aflame behind them, what is up with their expressions? Dazed and confused…and missing shirts and clothing that actually covers anything. *snort*
THE UNFORGIVEN (The League of the Black Swan #2) by Alyssa Day
Expected publication: May 6, 2014
Luke Oliver isn’t an ordinary private eye; he’s the Dark Wizard of Bordertown—the dimensional fold in Manhattan between the human, Fae, and demonic realms—and he keeps the peace when nobody else can. But he has fallen in love with the heiress to two thrones, and neither the Fae nor the demon royalty want him near their princess.
On her birthday, Rio Jones discovered that she’s royalty on both sides of her bloodline and inherited the powerful magic of starlight. She’s a bike messenger turned princess, and now she has sworn a year of service to the deadly League of the Black Swan in order to stay neutral between her two battling families.
When Rio inherits an unexpected treasure trove containing an impossibly rare and coveted dragon egg, and a former enemy comes back to life in a startling way, it will take every bit of Luke’s strength and magic, and Rio’s ingenuity, just to keep her alive. As they battle enemies—both strangers and family—Luke and Rio must learn to control the fires of passion raging between them, because a single moment of distraction might be their last.
