About the Author
Born from the genetic mash-up of lesser royalty, storytellers, wanderers and dreamers, Karina Cooper was destined to be a creative genius. As a child, she moved all over the country like some kind of waifish blonde gypsy and learned how to adapt to the new cultures her family settled in. When she (finally) grew up, she skipped the whole genius part and fell in love with writing Paranormal Romance because, really, who doesn't love hot men and a happy ending?
When she isn't writing about things that go bump in the night, Karina designs Steampunk and neo-Victorian couture for gentleman hobbyists and ladies of questionable reputation. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with a husband, three cats, one rabbit and a passel of adopted gamer geeks.

Cant tell one from the other needs a long rest to recuperate
Shawn Lowe is about to take on the assignment of his life. Capture Dr. Kayleigh Lauderdale, daughter of the man that killed his parents, and bring her and the cure back for the resistance. Conflicting emotions is an understatement when it comes to Kayleigh, Shawn wants to hate her but he is drawn to Kayleigh like no other woman before her. Kayleigh is sucked into Shawns like a moth to flames, little does she know the danger she is really in. Pulled deeper into the underworld, Kayleigh slowly discovers the madness behind the man she loves and calls father. When the world is rocked by devastating earthquakes, Kayleigh and Shawn will have to face their darkest secrets to find the happiness they both desire. This is a world where witches and magic live. The church is the oppressing power, blaming the catastrophes on magic users. Kayleigh and Shawn had a very interesting relationship dynamic. Although when Kayleigh was betrayed and used by Shawn, she still kept a positive attitude, strong strength of character and general good heartedness. This is my first experience with the Dark Mission series. I did have some “catch up” to completely understand what was going on, but I have to say I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. I will be going back and reading the first four books in this series. One for the Wicked was an excellent read! The relationship is tenuous at best, a rollercoaster of trust and accusations…but boy was it a great ride to be on. Karina Cooper created a fabulous dystopian world that will keep you glued to the pages. This ARC copy of One for the Wicked was given to me by Avon Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
