ONE FOR THE WICKED
In the final entry of the Dark Mission series, Cooper does not disappoint. One for the Wicked’s setting is dark and gritty with sexy characters who further the story while tying things up to satisfy longtime readers. The relationship between the hunter and his prey is erotic and dangerous, revealing the depth of the characters, something readers have come to expect from Cooper. This is a satisfying end to an imaginative series.
Shawn Lowe’s mission is to protect Dr. Kayleigh Lauderdale, the daughter of his enemy and the one who holds the cure to what is killing New Seattle’s witches. But he has his own agenda, and Kayleigh is nothing but a distraction — one he is powerless to deny. Kayleigh is not one for reckless behavior, especially in her private life. But Shawn brings out a side of her she’s not prepared to deal with. He steals her heart with one breath and lies to her with another. An old enemy’s plans turn their world upside down, and New Seattle’s witches must rise again. (AVON, May, 384 pp., $7.99)
