Review: Edge of Ecstasy (Urban Seductions #7) by Elizabeth Lapthorne

Melissa is an Assassin and one of the best. Fiercely independent and with her own set of rules, she always works alone and never harms an innocent. When her best friend is murdered, she swears to hunt down the killer. But for that she needs information and assistance.

Daniel Cranston believes strongly in working for the greater good but he didn’t ask for a partner, particularly not a sexy blonde bombshell with revenge on her mind.

When they realize how powerful their prey is, it’s far too late to turn back. Melissa is determined to avenge her friend, and Daniel can’t bring himself to leave her side. Passion and magic explode around them. On the tail of a rogue Assassin, one who is increasing his powers by draining his victims, what few rules they each hold dear are all going to be left far behind.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

A rogue assassin is increasing his magical powers by draining his victims in this thrilling paranormal romance. Passion and magic explode around assassins Melissa and Daniel as they join forces to stop the rogue and by the time they realize just how powerful their prey is, it is too late to turn back and the few rules they have will be left behind.

The plot starts with lots of tension building suspense as the investigation gets started and the closer Melissa and Daniel gets to finding the rogue the more dangerous it gets.  The author describes the story with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated suspense draws the reader deeper into the story. The final battle with rogue is exciting and believable and the characters are strong, compelling and invite the readers to join them, even while making sure to keep them at arm’s length, they are assassins after all.

The attraction between Melissa and Daniel explodes from the pages and the sex scenes are red hot and scorch the reader with lots of passion. The relationship though, will take some compromising as their line of work doesn’t really lead to trusting or working with someone else.  This story has some aspects that are really upsetting and sad for readers that have followed the series so the reader can’t help but get caught up in the investigation and ensuring that the evil rogue is brought to justice.

This novella in the Urban Seductions series starts off a little on the slow side in terms of excitement but the intrigue keeps the reader’s attention and the rest of the book explodes with thrills and excitement.  Once again, I found this one to be a very enjoyable and entertaining magical romance with captivating characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.
