Rhys MacLeod is a warrior first and a hacker second. Preserving the balance of power among supernatural beings is his prime directive, as well as keeping it far from human eyes. The discovery of a man killed by magical force on a Chicago street lands him on an op he didn't expect. He's good, but solving this crime requires a call to the best of the best.
Parker Black of Titan Group never met a network he couldn't infiltrate. Along with Titan team member Locke Oliver and Megan, a scientist who witnessed the murder, they uncover a maze of encrypted files and unethical DNA manipulation.
Rhys is duty bound to keep all supernatural details hidden from his human friends, so identifying the killer becomes more complicated when clues indicate the perp isn't human. And when the murderer shows up at their location, every second counts before its true nature is revealed.

This story is a standalone novel that is part of the Titan World release in which authors include characters from Cristin Harber’s Titan series. Twisted Desire blends the characters of Titan with the demons of Ms. Kay’s paranormal books. I will be the first to admit that I’m not a big paranormal fan most of the time, though the demon characters in this book are more like paranormal cops trying to keep that side from causing too much havoc in the human world. The story involves a murder of a human by a demon, a human witness (who, of course, doubts what she saw and is the female protagonist), a demon investigator and two Titan agents. In this story, Locke is a new hire with Titan and is on assignment to help investigate the murder; he is the male protagonist. The characters are well developed and likeable, even the demon-cops. The plot is also well developed and moves quickly. I enjoyed this stroll through the paranormal.
Sharon Kay added a marvelous story to the Titan World. Crossing the supernatural world with the human world was so well written. I've read all of the Titan Series books and I can honestly say, pulling something like what Rhy's has pulled on Parker over the years is not easy. It's not easy to pull the wool over Parker's eyes! Fortunately, it's easy for Parker and Locke to discount the strange things happening and the strange things found in the safe and the hacked files to the ramblings of a crazed scientist. Thoroughly enjoyed this addition to the Titan World!
Sharon Kay did an excellent job of combining her supernatural existence from the Watcher's Kiss series to Cristin Harber’s human inhabited Titan World series. The characters worked well together while the paranormal presence is never revealed to the human characters. TWISTED DESIRE takes place in contemporary Chicago. I love that the story included Rhys MacLeod from book four in the Watches’ Kiss series, AWAKENING KISS. I really enjoyed that book and was glad to read more about his character. I thought it was clever how Sharon Kay brought the Titan World characters into the story. Rhys and Jude are investigating the murder of human that was killed by a Deserati female. It leads them to Dayton Diagnostics. Rhys is an excellent hacker, but he cannot get into the company’s impressive firewalls. He calls in his human friend from Titan Group, Parker Black, to help with the task. Parker and his partner Locke Oliver head to Chicago to help Rhys out. While on the job, they meet witness, Megan O’Rourke, who helps with the investigation. Megan and Locke hit it off, having great chemistry. The scheme they uncover at Dayton Diagnostics is crazy. It was interesting to see the supernatural versus human side of things unfold as Rhys and Jude try to keep their world a secret. The story is full of non-stop action and numerous twists. I enjoyed the characters. The story was well-written and clever. It had a great ending. It was a wonderful collaboration of two series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
Twisted Desire is a short, captivating, and riveting novella that introduced the Watcher and Titan Worlds. It’s a great blend of contemporary and paranormal. I very much enjoyed and savored Twisted Desires. Rhys gets stumped trying to hack into an organization and decides he needs to contact an old buddy. Parker, works for the Titan organization, has worked with Rhys in the past, and once Rhys tells him what’s up, his interest is piqued. Locke, a new Titan member tags along with Parker to help. These three work well together. I enjoyed learning a little about each character. During the investigation these three didn’t expect to run into one of the scientist, Meghan, that work’s at the company and who is the only witness to a murder. During all of this Rhys has to keep the paranormal aspect of the investigation a secret from all the humans. We get a little mystery, a little suspense, a little action, and a little set up for a couple to maybe one day get a full book. It was a marvelous blend of genres and a great introduction to both worlds. Rated: 4 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Sharon Kay with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.
Twisted Desire by Sharon Kay When I saw this novella listed on NetGalley I wanted it. Why? I enjoy reading Sharon Kay’s books and was eager to see what this one might be about. I had not a clue that it was a melding of two different worlds and though I have not read even one story in The Titans series I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The Watchers are pulled into solving a murder in Chicago because their world and the human world have rules that must not be crossed and someone from their world has murdered a human. With the hunt on and hacker skills needed Parker, a human from the Titan group, is called in to help. There is a bit of romance mixed in with the locating and capture of the murderer and a bit of catching up with characters that no doubt have been in previous books of both series. I came away wanting to read more by Ms Kay but also wanting to find out who the Titans are. Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC. This is my honest review. 4 Stars
