Standard

enemyfrontTitle: The Enemy Within

Author: Lucy Varna

Genre: Romance (Paranormal/Suspense)

Rating: A

Purchase: Amazon

After fourteen years, Indigo Dupree returns to Tellowee, Georgia, to face the past she left behind. She’s tried of running, tired of hiding, and wants nothing more than to help her mother through the final days of her pregnancy. What she doesn’t want is to become romantically entangled, not even to the sinfully handsome Bobby Upton, whose kiss sent her fleeing a decade and a half before.

Bobby is the son of the Blade and a ruthless warrior in his own right. At sixteen, the age of manhood among the People, he tried to claim the woman he loved and failed, and spent the next decade hacking his way through Uncle Sam’s enemies. Now a successful businessman, he’s given the task of tracking down the People’s enemies, including India Furia, the twin sister of his heart’s only love.

Duty demands that Indigo atone for the sins of her sister by helping to bring her in. India has other ideas, ones that draw Indigo and Bobby into a deadly game involving the Prophecy of Light, forcing Indigo to choose between her duty and her heart.

It’s always tough to start a series later throughout the series, but I didn’t have a hard time catching up to the characters of this particular series. Indigo and Bobby, our main characters, share great chemistry. We learn a lot about their past, and about who they are, and their connection. There are some funny moments throughout the book, but mostly it’s a suspenseful ride from start to end.

India, the supposed villain, causes a lot of conflict, and does so in a good way. She’s a three-dimensional character, with inner conflict as well as conflict with others. I enjoyed learning more about her, and about how she was connected to Indigo and Bobby.

The book is definitely adults only material though. There were some hot scenes, if you know what I mean. And they were written well, always a difficult feat.

I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to fans of paranormal romance with strong heroines.
