“It’s truly some of her finest and most unpredictable writing. ”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve raved about Cari Silverwood’s Dark Hearts series and its conclusion, Wicked Hunt, has me singing her praises once again. It’s truly some of her finest and most unpredictable writing. At the conclusion of the last installment, Zoire is on the run, a woman on a mission to stamp out as many mesmers as she can get her hands on. Her ultimate target is the collector who took her beloved friend Cherie. Hot on her heels are Mavros and Grimm, unlikely partners, bound by a woman they both can’t seem to shake their connection to. Grimm thinks it’s love. Mavros doesn’t know the meaning of the word. Zoire knows she can’t run forever and Grimm needs their help. The solution won’t come easy. In the end, the answer is what we’re least expecting.

I’ve got to hand it to Ms. Silverwood. I’ve been a fan of hers for years, a fan of dark erotica in general, and she never fails to keep me on the edge of my seat, panting, dying to know the next twist in the story. Dark Hearts has been some of her darkest writing. The squeamish should take note. There are hints of erotic horror that come to a head in book two, Wicked Weapon. Where I was truly surprised was how this series evolved and came full circle. Wicked Hunt is a more in depth character exploration, an even more detailed glimpse into Mavros’ head, especially, which I really enjoyed. I’ve been drawn to his character from the beginning, saw a kernel of goodness, and I was eager to see him open up, see his usual cold and collected demeanor begin to show cracks of emotion. Grimm’s deterioration (I don’t want to spoil it further) and Zoire’s determination to fight for him, her loyalty, stood out. She’s one kick ass character, never weak, but vulnerable in all the right places. I loved seeing these three work together as a team, and not just in the action scenes. They burn up the sheets together as well. And one name. WOLFE. The spin off should in INSANE. Long-time fans of Ms. Silverwood’s dark erotica will know what I mean when I say that the ending was not at all what I expected. I was blown away, giddy and smiling. There can’t be darkness without light. These are characters that I will remember for a long time to come. This is among the most unique series I can remember getting my hands on. I can’t wait to see the world continue through Wolfe’s eyes.

About Cari Silverwood

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them. When others are writing bad men doing bad things, you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.
This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.

Her favorite hobby is convincing people she has a basement...though she really doesn’t. Promise.
If it existed it would be a terrifying place where you would find all the dangerous things that you never knew you craved.

I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember.And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10.I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention.The passion back, I haven’t stopped since.When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
