"Eden's unsurpassed creativity shines once again!" --Larissa Ione
Eve Bradley was undercover looking for a story, not a cause. But something about the man they called Subject Thirteen got her involved. The scientists said he was a devil, and they had a decent case: Terrifying power. A bad attitude. And looks that could lead anyone to sin. . .
Cain O'Connor knows the minute he catches her candy scent that Eve could drive him wild. But she's a threat--in a way no one has been for him in years. She's safer away from him, too. But with a powerful conspiracy determined to shut Eve up for good, there's no time to argue. All they can do is trust their instincts--and their hearts. . .

"Cynthia's on my must-buy list." --Angie Fox
"A fast-paced, sexy thrill ride you won't want to miss." --Christine Feehan on Eternal Hunter
Prolific author Eden (the Fallen series) debuts a paranormal series that overwhelms skimpy plotting and worldbuilding with powerful erotic scenes. Undercover reporter Eve Bradley is determined to find the truth behind the Genesis Group's supernatural experiments for the U.S. military. When she witnesses the deliberate murder and immediate self-revival of a brawny handsome man called Subject Thirteen, aka "Cain O'Connor," Eve is horrified and determined to act. Cain is reluctant to believe this "little morsel" who smells "like candy" can rescue him, but together they engineer an escape, during which it becomes clear that Eve isn't harmed by Cain's supernatural flames and heat. As Eve investigates her abilities and Cain seeks revenge, the two predictably grow closer over a series of passionate encounters. Fans of fluffy erotic paranormal romance will find this tale as alluring as Eve's peppermint scent.

This novel had so much potential to be great...but it never made it to that level.
I loved the hero...Cain was scarred but not broken. His lady love, Eve, was strong and supportive.
There was action and adventure...but so many of the best details of this story were tossed by the wayside. I don't believe in spoilers, but honestly if you write a strong character who has so much potential ( what they are), then please do something with it...or don't make that such a huge part of the story that you repeat it and do nothing with that fact. I felt disappointed.
It is an overall good read, but not as wonderful as it could have become.
