Overview

In life, Cain had been a destroyer. In death, he still was. Only now lust was his weapon. Slain long before in a moment of despair, the onetime Viking had been collected by the Evil One and forced into servitude, He’d become an incubus, a demon with one purpose: to stalk the night, stripping away women’s fears and tasting their desire.

But when he slipped into Sophie Alexander’s dreams, she evaded his pursuit. Sophie had one purpose: to find the secret that would save a dying child. Cain could feel the desperation in her heart, but he could also sense something else. In her kiss, there was sweet redemption. Love was no longer the trap he’d believed it to be in the past – and his lust was no longer a weapon but a tool. With it he would break his bonds, and together he and Sophie would overcome the evil that imprisoned them and create a whole new world.

    Fine paranormal romance

    In Chicago, research chemist Sophie Alexander desperately seeks to find the cure for the cancer that is killing her beloved ward, Kara. Sophie, who works for a cosmetics firm, knows she is one ingredient away from a youth elixir that will work wonders for her cherished Kara and make people younger. However, the clock ticks, as Kara does not have much long to live so a few drinks later a desperate Sophie conjures up the Devil. The deal they make is her soul for the ingredient. The Devil returns to his abode and assigns incubus Cain the Slayer to the case. Cain comes to Sophie in her dreams, but is under strict orders not to touch her. He soon knows what love is all about after over a millennium of not caring when he realizes that his victim willingly sacrificed everything for a child not even of her womb. Cain falls in love with Sophie and wants to help her fully knowing the cost of betraying his employer is eternal loneliness in the deepest pits of Hell. Fans of paranormal romances filled with angels, incubi, and demons will relish A STRANGER¿S DESIRE. The story line is fast-paced and at a superior level when it concentrates on either Kara¿s health or the weird lead couple relationship. Acceptance of a scientist doing an incantation seems a stretch, even as desperate as Sophie was while a taut subplot focused on industrial espionage but feels mundane when compared with the wild paranormal elements that make Kimberly Raye¿s novel into a unique engaging read.
