Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rush’s sixth Offspring paranormal (after Beyond the Darkness) is an emotionally charged romance uniting two people in spite of guilt and fear. Lachlan McLeod turned ascetic after he accidentally killed his mother while playing around with his ability to astral project. As a child, Jessie Bellandre watched her uncle Russell and his Darkness—tremendous negative energy brought on by intense feeling—kill her mother and possess her father. She escaped and has run from him for 15 years while stifling her own Darkness. While trying to kidnap Jessie, Russell badly injures Lachlan’s brother, Magnus. Jessie saves Magnus with her Darkness, and Lachlan bulldozes her into accepting his help, assisted by the spirit of a hilariously mercurial 18th-century McLeod. Jessie and Lachlan are perfectly matched, and as they suss out Russell’s plan, she learns how to channel her power while he learns how to accept redemption. This strong installment will have new readers hunting down Rush’s backlist. Agent: Nicole Resciniti, the Seymour Agency. (June)

Since she was a kid, Jaime Rush devoured books on unexplained mysteries and psychic phenomena. She knew she would be published, marry a fabulous guy, and win a Toyota Supra.

I loved the buildup in the relationship between Jessie and Lachlan, They didn't just jump into bed and fall in love. They struggled with their feelings and Lachlan's honor towards his brother. It was nice to read that Lachlan had never been with a woman before.....but that didn't mean he didn't know what he as doing. The love scenes were well written. This was the first book in this series by Ms. Rush that I have read. As a series book I didn't feel lost not having read any others. I definitely am interested in reading the rest of the Series and I cannot wait to read the next book. My only complaint was the ending. I was waiting to turn the page to see Lachlan go see Magnus when he awoke and to tell him what happened, but it just ended, But it just makes me (not that I wasn't going to anyway) more anxious to read the next book. Thank you Jaime for the opportunity to read and review Darkness Becomes Her....I highly recommend this book and the Series.

Darkness Becomes Her is book six in Jaime Rush's amazing Offspring series and though it could be read as a standalone, I suggest reading the rest of the series or you will be lost. The Offspring is one of my favorite series and after reading the novella The Darkness Within I couldn't wait to find out just what Darkness was and how it was going to affect the Offspring. When I found out Darkness Becomes Her was about Lachlan McLeod I squeed like the fangirl I am. Jaime Rush continues to impress and amaze me. She took this series in a direction I didn't expect at all when it started and Darkness Becomes Her had me wishing I had a full day to myself so I could finish the book. If you are looking for steamy PNR that's different, give Jaime Rush a chance. You won't be disappointed.

This was my least favorite book in the Offspring series. Don't get me wrong the book was well written and somewhat exciting however I feel that the author is loosing focus with the Offspring series. If you've been reading the series it is worth picking up. If you new to the series then I would start with the first book in the series.

Darkness Becomes Her is the sixth installment in the Offspring Series by Jaime Rush. In this story we read about Lachlan McLeod, turned 'monk' after he accidentally killed his mother while playing around with his ability to astral project, and Jessie Bellandre who as a child watched her uncle Russell kill her mother and possess her father when he was using his Darkness. After she escaped she had been running from him for 15 years. While trying to kidnap Jessie, Russell badly injures Lachlan’s brother Magnus and Jessie saves him with her Darkness, which puts him in a temporary coma. Wanting Russell dead for what he did, Lachlan forces Jessie into accepting his help. Later they find out Lachlan is being assisted by the spirit of Olaf, and 18th-century kin of Lachlan and Magnus and he helps Jessie find her mother and father and put the pieces of her life together and find out what really happened those 15 years ago. I loved the buildup in the relationship between Jessie and Lachlan, They didn't just jump into bed and fall in love. They struggled with their feelings and Lachlan's honor towards his brother.
