Miami's best bounty hunter, Nikita Tesoro will do anything to collar a fugitive. Including stepping into a stripper's stilettos for the night. Outsmarting her rival Kyle Beaudecker is just a bonus. Despite the sexual tension sparking between them, Nikita keeps a professional distance from "Hurricane" Kyle. After all, she can't get hurt if she doesn't care.
A descendant of the archangel Barakiel with the power to harness electricity, Kyle should be focusing his energy on tracking down a demon that may be hiding in the human realm. But he's a lover, not a fighter, and he'd much rather use his special talents for pleasure: specifically Nikita's. And teaming up to find a bail jumper means spending lots of time together…
But when their case takes a turn for the demonic, Kyle can no longer hide his true nature from Nikita. He'll do whatever it takes to win her heart—even stop the apocalypse. But he can't do it alone.
Ok, so I’m a bounty hunter, female, full of attitude and willing to do just about anything to catch a bail jumper. That includes waiting tables in a nasty, back alley “Gentlemen’s” Club and doing a little exotic dancing. I’m not the only bounty hunter in the Miami area and there is one that really has had my attention for the last five years. His name is Kyle and he is one hunk of deliciousness! He thinks he is the number one bounty hunter in the area, but that is so not true. Point in fact we were both after the same jumper and guess who caught him?
“Wait a minute.” But even as suspicion slammed into Kyle with all the force of a sledgehammer, she slapped the cuffs on Jon-Jay and hopped off the stage in a no-nonsense manner, pulling a badge out of one of the spangled bra cuffs of her bikini top as she went.
Kyle has a secret…he is more than a bounty hunter. He is a human/hybrid cross, part human, part angel. No one knows his secret and until recently he was on his own. Now he is a member of active Nephilim community. Kyle wants to be more than just sex to Nikita, but she is not willing to open up to him until she is attacked by a demon. The very same demon that Kyle and the Nephilim have been hunting.
“Do you remember meeting someone by your car? Making someone bleed? Running like hell along the beach? Your feet are a mess because of that, by the way.”
Kyle finds that he has no choice but to tell Nikita about who he is and what he is chasing. Nikita and Kyle team up to try and find the demon and his proxy to stop the demon from manifesting himself into the human world.
“Demons, like angels, are spiritual beings, Nikita. If these beings are not specifically sent her, it takes one hell of a lot of energy for them to stay in a realm where they don’t belong. You know all those Hollywood movies about demons latching onto humans to the point of possessing them? There’s actually a lot of truth to that….”
Trust must be earned and freely given by both Kyle and Nikita. The past must give way so that a future can be made.
“I started out wanting to save the world, but that’s no how I’m ending up. You are the only person I’m interested in saving, and I’ll do it even if I have to sacrifice every belief I hold dear…”
