Part of a small demon lair in North Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or ‘anchor’, is a guy who’s rumored to be the most powerful demon in existence. Compelling, full of secrets and armed with raw sexuality, Knox Thorne is determined to claim her as his anchor, creating a psychic bond that will prevent their inner demons from ever turning rogue. The billionaire also wants Harper in his bed. She’s not so sure she wants either of those things. No one seems to know what breed of demon Knox is, only that he’s more dangerous than anything she’s ever before encountered. But he refuses to walk away. And when an unknown danger starts closing in on Harper, it seems that Knox is the only one who can keep her safe.
As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to being in control. He’s also used to people fearing and obeying him. Harper does neither, which unexpectedly amuses him. Unpredictable, elusive, and complex, she draws Knox and his inner demon like nothing ever has. Knox is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He’ll have her, and he’ll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what’s his. He won’t allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make.
Harper Wallis is a local tattoo artist, and a demon. She's good at keeping out of trouble for the most part, but when she ends up having to fight for one of her friends in the Underground things get messy when the most powerful demon around takes an interest in her. Knox is living a pretty detached life. He only has his sentinels close, and even they are afraid of him. Those who know what he really is fear him, and for good reason, but it keeps most people away. But when he finds out Harper is more important to him than either of them realized life just got a whole lot harder for both of them.
Burn was a very interesting start to this series. The author brings us into a whole new world of different kinds of demons, and it extremely interesting. I really did enjoy this story. I liked both of the main characters, and I look forward to reading more.
The only downside to this one was I felt Harper and Knox's relationship went kind of fast once they got together, and that sort of made the story a little frustrating at times. Other than that I did really like it, and am excited for more.
