New York Times bestselling author Laurie London presents ASSASSIN'S TOUCH, the first book in the Iron Portal paranormal romance series. Enter a darkly sensual world where secret portals separate modern and ancient realms, band-of-brother heroes fight evil together, and sworn enemies dare to become passionate lovers.
He can never have her. It would mean the end of his career as an Iron Guild leader.
Haunted by loss, Cascadian assassin Rickert D'Angelus is on a mission of vengeance. Determined to stop the Pacifican army from finding a portal to his world, he leads a group of warriors into New Seattle with one goal--to kill all Pacifican soldiers.
Agent Neyla Trihorn had the perfect life until a deadly accident revealed her latent para-abilities. Now, the former fashion designer is the Pacifican army's hottest commodity in their fight against the invaders.
When Rickert discovers a beautiful, unconscious soldier on a cold mountain ledge near the portal, he realizes she's a Protection-Talent and cannot be killed. To prevent the army from using her skills again, he takes her as his prisoner instead.
But when he pulls her into his arms, a sexy and compelling vision appears, awakening something inside him. Something he can't ignore.
Torn between duty and passion, Rickert must decide if the vision is a Talent trick designed to foil the enemy or the answer to his deepest desires...
Authors Note: All of the Iron Portal books are standalone titles with no cliffhangers. Each one has a new couple and story-arc. They are hot paranormal romances with band-of-brother heroes, strong heroines, lots of suspense and danger, and plenty of sexy times. I hope you enjoy them!

Good start to a good series...There is two worlds connected through portals one more modern one more medieval..the characters are written well and the concepts of both worlds fleshed out enough but just didn't compel me like some of my other series...I still periodically re-read these stories but this one never really truly grabbed my attention but it still is a good read and nice paranormal romance...when two supposed enemies collide you never can tell what love will do
Cool world mythology...
I really enjoyed this story. The writing just flows, and the story is captivating. I like the characters, Neyla is smart and head strong and selfless. Rickert is the consummate warrior, he doesn't think of his own future only how he can protect his people.
Looking forward to Archer's story!
It was definitely a great read. It had good characters, a very nice plot, and it was well written.
Paranormal is my favourite genre. These books just strengthen my beliefs.
I just wish it were longer with a more elaborate plot. Would get more attached that way.
