WARNING – SPOILERS MAY ENSUE BEYOND THIS POINT – REVIEW BELOW

I really didn’t know what I was getting into when I picked up Tormentor Mine by Anna Zaires. I saw the typical half-naked male on the cover, the exaggerated font of the title, and expected to get a pleasant but mediocre romance novel.

I didn’t.

As a dark romance, the book was a well-balanced, cleverly crafted struggle between a dedicated soft-hearted wife, and her aggressor – a paid assassin with a personal vendetta list that she, unfortunately, finds herself attached to. The author managed to walk the razor-sharp edge between a dangerously sexy romance and a dark thriller – and I love every minute of it!

If you enjoy dark romances, those that straddle the line of taboo, those that have a little bite to them – I highly recommend you give this book a try. I hope to continue with this series in the future.
