Review: Tormented by Darkness (Inherited Damnation #2) by Claire Ashgrove

Cursed by her incubus father centuries ago, the last thing Rhiannon McLaine wants is to fall in love.

The night she delivers flowers to detective Mick Farrell, however, everything changes. Deep-seated attraction flares into untamed passion. In the morning, Rhiannon awakens to find she’s lost her heart. Now, unless she can convince Mick of her secret past, she’s destined to take his life.

When Rhiannon asks Mick to go camping with her, instinct warns him to refuse. Though he hungers for her love and the goodness she represents, he’ll do anything to keep her from discovering the darkness within his soul. Yet a weekend in the woods is the perfect place to indulge in temporary desire…until he finds himself bound against his will.

Rhiannon McLaine has lost her heart to Mick Farrell but she’s destined to take his life unless she can convince Mick of her secret past in this thrilling paranormal romance.

Mick hungers for the love and goodness that Rhiannon represents but he’ll do anything to keep her from discovering the darkness within his soul and the reader can’t help but get lost to the seductive call of this story as Rhiannon and Mick’s secrets try to keep them apart. These strong captivating characters lure readers into the story and refuse to release them and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers shivering in anticipation with lots of suspense, excitement, emotional turmoil and romance. While the chemistry between Rhiannon and Mick sizzles with lots of red hot passion, the relationship is doomed unless Mick can accept Rhiannon’s true demonic nature before time runs out.

Suspense and excitement builds throughout the story as Rhiannon loses her heart despite her determination not to and her birthday looms closer and the danger escalates. The well written scenes and details capture the imagination and bring the story to life while the well orchestrated events ensure that there is never a dull moment and Mick and Rhiannon both capture the heart with their pain and suffering.

I couldn’t put the story down once I started reading it and while I wish it was a bit longer with a bit more ‘fleshing out’, this dark and edgy romance is a must read and I can’t wait to read the next one.
