Tactical, lethal, resolute.
Haunted by a centuries-old tragedy, there’s no room in Arawn’s life for softness. Every action he takes is for the betterment of his race and the good of the realm. He leads his elite band of warriors the same way he lives his life: full on, without compromise, determined. Except for one sexy female who happens to be his subordinate.
Tenacious, passionate, tough-as-steel.
Ria relishes the duties Arawn assigns her as much as she respects the deadly combatants on her team. And she has a secret: her formidable boss is also her deepest fantasy. Years of working under his authority haven’t dulled the spark she feels, yet her passion is tempered by the hints of loss she gathers about him. His dark and sexy moodiness draws her, but he’s a hard man to approach as he keeps the world at emotional arm’s length.
Secrets laced in blood burn his battle-hardened soul.
When Ria is gravely injured in the line of duty, Arawn can no longer fight his own long-simmering feelings. But a secret, more heinous and ugly than anyone could imagine, prevents him from surrendering his heart. Despite his intentions, he and Ria forge a connection both fiery and unexpectedly tender. Yet every day brings them closer to shocking facts. Evil stirs in his blood, and hiding the truth from her will be the ultimate betrayal.

Tainted Kiss is a spin off series from the Solsti sisters and starts were the other series ended. It's a new series though and features the lash demons/watchers at the headquarters, starting with Arawn the leader.
Arawn is tough, strong and hides his inner self including some secrets. Lately though people have been noticing him visiting the health centre a lot!
Tiriana, was injured in battle and hasn't woken since, she's had a steady stream of visitors, the most common one is the leader of Watcher HQ.
I knew the world they lived in from other books, but enjoyed hearing about the realms again as they were introduced to new readers.
When Tiriana awakes, she's pleased to hear about her frequent visitor, it seems they have both been hiding how they feel about each other.
Arawn likes to take control in all things, but he has a strong partner in the book that doesn't take things lying down.....
As an added bonus if you've read previous series, you get treated to some familiar characthers appearing through the book, whether this will continue in next book I don't know, but I hope so.
I have to say I really enjoy this authors writing, it flows so well with characthers that you really care about.
Expect passion, lust, danger, and romance in book 1 of this new series,
Can't wait for next book, which you get a taste for in this book.
