"Rogue Rider" [Lords of Deliverance Series, Book 4] by Larissa Ione (aka Sydney Croft)

My Book Summary : Jillian was only doing her typical chores on her property but her life chances when she finds a naked and unconscious man lying in a snow bank. She brings him home in hopes of warming him up and hoping he won't die, and thankfully, he recovers quickly. However, when the man comes to, he doesn't have any clue as to how he got there, or whom he was; the only thing he remembers is his name ... Reseph.

As they get to know one another and try to find out anything about whom Reseph really is, others from Reseph's past try to hunt him out too. Soon Jillian will have to decide which is more important to her the man she is beginning to fall in love with, the life that she has created for herself, or getting rid of any demon who crosses her path again...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! See how even the most evil being (well not completely) to have ever walked the earth can fall in love! I thoroughly enjoyed how the romance between Reseph & Jillian played out. Especially how, in the beginning when Reseph is trying to learn who he is he feels an instant connection to Jillian in a way that even though he says things like him not enjoy commitment when his instincts take over he completely disproves whatever he says. =0)

Also, I loved the beginning of this novel and the build up of it. However, I wish that when Reseph finally remembers, the build up of the novel continued and not fall as short as it did. Though, even saying that, I did like how the plot played out and how it ended. In addition, I can't wait to see where Reaver's novel (the next book in this series) will take us!!

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who enjoys reading new twists on the whole angel vs demons take, or just to anyone who likes paranormal romances!!

- On a side note -
I LOVED the snarky humor that was layered throughout this novel!! Plus, I couldn't get enough of the cover!! =0)

Author's Series Interview(s) :

Book Teaser(s) :
“Do you know where you’re from?”
“No idea. I can’t remember... anything.” He pushed up, his shoulders and biceps flexing with power, and looked down at his naked body. “Did we fuck?”
She nearly choked. “No.”
“Why not?” He eased back down on top of her and buried his face in her neck, inhaling deeply. This time she felt the distinct presence of an erection settling against her pelvis. The buzz in the very air around him shifted suddenly from menacing to blatantly erotic, but no less dangerous.
Oh, God. “Because we’re complete strangers.”
He lifted his head. “So?”
So? This was not going well. ~ within Chapter 2
“Why do you have a flower in your hair?”
“What, it’s not very Horseman-like?”
“It’s not what I would have expected, no.”
Limos huffed. “It’s a poison-spitting iris that dissolves flesh on contact.”
Jillian edged backward. “Seriously?”
“No.” Limos grinned. “I just like pretty flowers. I could remove your flesh myself. I’m great with a blade.”
Flesh removal? Oh, God. The reality of the situation was starting to sink in now. “And this...” Jillian swallowed sickly. “This is how you convince me to go with you?”
“Sorry. I probably need to work on my sales pitch.” ~ within Chapter 22
So... my boyfriend killed a lot of people.
No, that didn’t have the proper ring to it.
Turns out that my lover murdered millions of people.
Better, but still didn’t quite achieve that jaw-dropping horror factor.
Before I found him frozen in a snowdrift, my half-demon lover tortured and slaughtered men, women, and children by the millions.
Perfect. ~ within Chapter 32
