Blurb

Monsters don’t often look like monsters on the outside.

Forced to marry a man I should hate, I’m now bound to Damian.

I sometimes wonder what he sees when he looks at me. Deer in headlights, I guess.

What I see is clear.

Darkness.
Desire.
Carnal want.

A man with too much experience.

The night he took me he told me I belong to him. He proved it on our wedding night. And I believe him when he says he’ll keep me safe. He won’t let anyone touch what’s his.

But I can’t forget what he is. Can’t forget the things he’s done.

And no matter what, I can’t let myself fall in love with him.

Excerpt

“Welcome home, Brother.”
I look up at Damian. Beautiful Damian.
He shifts his gaze to mine. 
“Didn’t I tell you to leave the locked doors alone?” he asks me, but his voice is strange. Echoing in this dusty, forgotten place.
The music starts again. That eerie sound of piano keys played slowly, so fitting to this place, this room, this house. 
My head is spinning. 
The other man, Damian’s brother, says something. His voice is similar to Damian’s but off. Like his face. Wrong.
Damian tucks hair behind my ear. 
I push his hand away, push his arms away. I turn slowly. They’re both watching me now, waiting to see what I’ll do. 
And the tune keeps playing, the chords slow. Sad.
I need to look at him. 
Can they hear my heartbeat? Blood beats like a drum against my ears. 
Run.
Run.
But I can’t run. I meet a monster at every turn. One standing behind me. The other holding me. 
He warned me about the monsters. How many more hide in this house?
“Cristina,” Damian says. 
I keep turning, my body still pressed to Damian’s.
I’ve taken shelter in my enemy’s arms. 
He’s in my periphery now. The monster. The brother. Tall, like Damian. I see the coat. It’s wet. He was the man walking back toward the house. It wasn’t Damian at all. What is out there that they go to see in the dead of night?

Review

Unholy Intent is the outstanding conclusion to this author’s Unholy Union duet.  I thoroughly enjoyed this dark romance as I was completely enraptured by Damian and Cristina’s remarkable journey.  The character development throughout this novel was well thought out and the plot was perfectly executed; thus creating an enthralling read with engaging characters and a fast-paced narrative that kept me immersed in the story from beginning to end. 


Damian and Cristina are both likable characters that have strengths, but also flaws which makes them seem more real. Damian fully endeared himself to me.  Yes, he maintains a commanding and powerful presence, but there is so much more to him.  Cristina, while young, is clever enough to wonder about who she can trust in a house laden with dark and sinister “monsters".  She has an inner strength about her which I loved.  The chemistry between Damian and Cristina is palpable and the kindle melting scenes left me fanning myself.


Unholy Intent is a novel that will keep you on your toes as there are mind games galore, betrayals at play as well as action and suspense.  Unholy Intent is not a standalone as it is book 2, the conclusion of this author’s Unholy Union duet. The duet in its entirely is a phenomenal read and if you have enjoyed this author’s previous works &/or dark romances, then you will definitely want to check out this duet!
