Summary

It is difficult growing up in the shadow of heroes revered throughout the galaxy. But that is the lot of young Khorii—daughter of the legendary Acorna and her lifemate, Aari—who must now follow her own destiny through a fantastic universe of wonders and perils. 
Khorii became a hero in her own right as she fought to save the universe from a mysterious, deadly plague that not even the healing powers of the Linyaari could stop.  
Now, confined with the rest of the survivors on Paloduro, the home planet of the disease, it seems as if the danger may be fading, and Khorii and her friends may be able to stem the tide of death and disease . . . until ominous signs indicate that the perpetrators are near and that the epidemic is only beginning. As old enemies reemerge and a shocking family secret is revealed, Khorii must unlock the malevolent mysteries of the deadly pestilence with the aid of her android "brother" before their unknown foes complete their covert mission to cripple the entire star system.

    “Tracey O’Hara writes in a voice full of passion and power.”—Nalini Singh 
    “I can’t wait to read more about the Brethren.”  —Keri Arthur 
    Fans of supernatural fiction can’t stop talking about author Tracey O’Hara’s Dark Brethren—a phenomenal urban fantasy series in the bestselling vein of J.R. Ward, Patricia Briggs, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jeaniene Frost, and Jocelynn Drake. O’Hara continues her gripping paranormal saga of shapeshifters, vampires, werewolves, and darkest magic with Sin’s Dark Caress, as an NYPD Detective joins forces with a powerful forensic witch to investigate a rash of gruesome murders that plagues the city, hoping to prevent an ancient, insidious evil from reentering their world. Sin’s Dark Caress is supernatural suspense combined with a captivating love story that will appeal equally to dark fantasy lovers and fans of paranormal romance. It’s no wonder the Romantic Times BOOKclub declares that, “urban fantasy just got a major jolt of talent with O’Hara’s arrival.”

    This is Part 2 of 3 of the Waldgrave series.  
     
    Lena Collins has nearly adjusted to her new life with the Silenti. However, a part of her still wishes her previous life of carefree traveling had never ended.  
     
    The Silenti won't allow her to leave Waldgrave unescorted, and she never ventures far. Some of them claim it's for her own protection. The rest will never trust a Daray--not after the veil of lies and secrecy that the elderly Master cast over their society.  
     
    Deciding that there is only one way to make them trust her, Lena decides to embark on a mission to return an ancient--and potentially deadly--relic to the Council's possession.  
     
    However, Lena soon discovers that not everyone is happy about the possibility of the portal's recovery, and some of them are willing to kill to make sure that the portal is never seen again.  
     
    And before it's all over, Lena will learn a secret so destructive that it could send the Silenti world spiraling into chaos.

    She's finally met the man of her dreams–too bad he lives in a different century! 
      
    A devoted history buff finds the re-enactment of a pre-Victorian ball in London a bit boring…until a mysterious artifact sweeps her back in time to the real event, and into the arms of a compelling British lord. 
      
    Isabelle Rochon can't believe it when she finds herself in the reality of 1830's London high society. She's thrilled to witness events and people she's studied. But she may also have to survive without modern tools or career–unless she can find a way to return to her time. And then there's Viscount Lord Montagu, a man whose embrace curls her toes, but who has a dangerous agenda of his own. 
      
    Lord Phineas Montagu is on a mission to avenge his sister, and he'll stop at nothing, including convincing an alluring stranger to pose as his respectable fiancé. He's happy to repay her by helping her search for her stolen calling card case that brought her back in time. But he doesn’t bargain for the lady being his intellectual match–or for the irresistible attraction that flames between them. 
      
    They're both certain they know what they want, but as passion flares, Phineas must keep both himself and Isabella safe from unseen opponents, and she must choose when and where her heart belongs. Can they ever be together for good? 
      
    Don't miss the time travel romance USA Today called "a delicious twist on historical drama and romance."
