Dark Hunger by Rita Herron

Dark Hunger is the second in Rita Herron’s Demonborn Trilogy. In it we meet Quinton Valtrez. Quinton is not your average man - he’s half human / half demon - and can hear your thoughts. He was orphaned as a child and was raised by monks who helped train him in controlling his powers in order for him to battle the demons that would eventually taunt him into turning evil and returning to the underworld. He presently works for Homeland Security as a deadly assassin, part of an unacknowledged division in the government. He is able to balance his darker needs by killing bad guys - he does this without any remorse and is happy with his life.

Annabelle Armstrong is a reporter for CNN and she has one mission - to expose Quinton Valtrez for the killer that she knows he is. She has received various mysterious tips and they all lead to the same thing - Quinton is a bad guy and a murderer and she will do anything to get the scoop even if it means getting closer to him in order to achieve her goal. But as bombs start going off in Savannah, Charleston and New Orleans - it is up to Quinton to discover who the culprits are behind these evil acts. As Annabelle starts questioning his motives and his humanity - she is put in a position where she’ll have to choose between exposing Vincent or following her heart.

Quinton and Annabelle were both very strong and very likeable characters. I loved how they both did everything in their powers to fight the attraction that they feel for one another but in the end they could not stop the inevitable. Although Quinton is described as a half-demon, for some reason he did not come off as a dark character - on the other hand, I found it endearing that he had such soft spot for Annabelle. As for it being part of a series, I can definitely say that you do not need to read the first book Insatiable Desire (although these characters do have cameo appearances). It was very easy to read and just as easy to understand this demon infested world they were living in. Ms. Herron does a fantastic job in keeping the reader anxious to see just what will happen next. She intertwines all the action with just enough romance to keep you satisfied. I loved the scene with the surveillance camera =P Very sexy!

It was intense, action-packed and full of steamy scenes that will have you turning the pages quicker just to get to those juicy moments. All in all, this is fantastic reading for you paranormal romance lovers.
