Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. The pre-publication release we are eagerly anticipating this week is:
Taken by Fire
by Sydney Croft
(ACRO # 6)
HIS MISSION WAS TO TAKE HER OUT.
BUT DESIRE GOT IN THE WAY.
A product of genetic manipulation, Melanie Milan shares a body with her malevolent sister Phoebe. A sleek, blonde predator with a heart of pure darkness, Phoebe puts their body through the wicked underbelly of sex for thrills—when she’s not igniting her pyrokinetic skills for an evil organization bent on taking over the world. Melanie rarely gets out to play—much less fall in love. But that changes when rival ARCO agent Stryker Wills shows up, with a mission to take out the woman who torched his partner.
An operative with rare abilities, Stryker soon realizes that the woman he’s about to kill isn’t the murderous fire starter he’s hunting. But he does want her. Melanie, with the power to ice anything in her path, is heating things up in ways that are setting his blood on fire. As long as Melanie stays in control, she is his best ally to bring down her sister and stop hellish havoc from being unleashed. Walking a tightrope of longing and hate, Stryker and Melanie begin to understand that true power lies in sweet surrender to each other, to the fire between them, to the erotic adventure that’s joined their hearts and abilities to become their salvation—and perhaps the world’s.
I’m so excited to get this book. It’ll be the final book in the ACRO series (book # 6), which a mix of X-Men with paranormal romance/erotica. Yes, these guys and girls have superpowers, and there’s a good agency and an evil agency battling against each other for supremacy. Who is Sydney Croft? The alter-ego of Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler!! And… does this series really have to end? Taken by Fire releases June 28, 2011!!! Don’t miss out!
