#7 : My Immortal Assassin - Carolyn Jewel (TOUR & WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT)

Grayson Spencer is hellbent on killing the dark mage who destroyed her life. But when her attempt fails, she is forced to turn to Durian, a feared demon and expert assassin. Newly armed with powerful magic she's barely able to control, she'll do whatever it takes to complete her mission--even surrender to a dangerous fiend whose eyes promise unimaginable pleasure.
Sworn to protect all mages, Durian can't let Gray threaten the uneasy peace among demons, humans, and mages. So he proposes a deal: He'll train Gray to master her gift if she'll bind herself magically to him, submitting to his control. As Gray's powers intensify, so too does Durian's hunger for this fierce, irresistible woman. When the dark mage makes a final play for Gray, will the passion she and Durian share be the key to their survival or the seed of their destruction?

My Opinion:
I heard recently this was part of a series. I had no idea, and frankly after reading the book, it doesn't matter. You can read it as a stand alone. I didn't feel lost at all.
I really like Durian and Gray, even if she had really bad fashion sense. I was rooting for them right off the bat. Their chemistry is pretty intense for the lack of sex in the book.
Don't go thinking there wasn't any sex, it just wasn't the focus of the story. Romance or not. It was mostly paranormal fiction for me.
The one thing I wasn't crazy about was the beginning. The very beginning, in the prologue, the author uses a 15th century term. You see more of this throughout the book. The problem is, when a chick is decked out like a punk rocker, and the demon-god man is dressing in Armani fashions, they're not likely in that time frame. Era-wise, I don't think the author had all that figured out. That's just me, and the best part is, it didn't ruin the book.
A lot of women are going to love this one!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
