"another fast-paced, scorching and suspenseful tale"
On Council orders, Panthecinos Sam Kincaid infiltrates Paul
Richardson's organization and one night during a lavish
dinner party at Richardson's mansion, he kills Richardson.
That he was doing his job and eradicating an evil,
unscrupulous and immoral businessman who'd sold his soul to
a demon, was little consolation when in the wake of Sam's
actions, innocent and beautiful Faith Richardson is left
widowed and at the mercy of her husband's enemies.
Bereft but free of her open, loveless and unconsummated
marriage, Faith Richardson's life is in danger now and the
only one she can trust is Sam Kincaid. She wastes no time
running to the man's isolated cabin in the woods to beg for
his help. Initially, Sam denies her request. But Faith is
persistent and makes the ultimate proposal, offering her
body in exchange for Sam's protection.
As Sam has wanted Faith ever since coming to work for her
husband so many weeks ago, it is no great hardship for him
to accept. But what will she do when she discovers he's not
who and what she thinks he is? What will she do when she
finds out that Sam is the one who dealt the fatal blow to
From just one touch, Sam knows that Faith, a mere human, is
his, fated to him for life. He does not want to frighten
her away by telling her this, but he knows he will do
everything in his power to prevent any man touching her; do
anything to keep her safe, including disobeying Council
orders and protocol.
Richardson had convinced his wife that he had a cure for
cancer, and Faith is under the impression that a rival
company was out to get him, hence out to get Faith now
under the impression she has the formula her husband was
working on. But when she talks in more detail with Sam
about their situation, she discovers that Sam is not the
only man by whom she was being duped.
In the meantime, while investigating possible leads into
who is behind the attempts on Faith's life, Sam discovers
that his own life has come full circle, and the past that
he has so diligently tried to deny is about to smack him --
and Faith -- full in the face.
Adams has fashioned a strong story of redemption and
forgiveness, one that boasts the usual bloodthirsty and
vengeful demons and their minions stalking the hero and
heroine and otherwise making their lives miserable. She
also includes several favorite goodies and baddies from
DEMONIC OBSSESSION (Book 2 in the series) to bring to
fruition another fast-paced, scorching and suspenseful
thrill-ride in FLESH AND BLOOD.
