Alexis Morgan-- "Defeat the Darkness" (Paladin series)

Hard-eyed and hard-boiled, Hunter Fitzsimon isn't what Tate Justice expected in a tenant for the apartment above her garage. Terse and intensely private, Hunter's mission is to protect a narrow stretch of the barrier between Earth and Kalithia against the Paladins' ruthless enemies--a job that would be much easier without his sexy landlady nosing around. So when she follows Hunter into the woods late one night, he decides to teach Tate a lesson with a passionate kiss that brings her to her knees....and unexpectedly ignites red-hot desire deep in his soul. But the warrior's dark and dangerous world is no place for his fiery lover. Does possessing Tate mean turning his back on his brethren... or will Hunter forsake the woman of his dreams for the harsh duty he's always known?

***Morgan writes this series so slowly (1 to 2 books a year) that i forget what happened in the previous one. I can't remember exactly what happened to Hunter previously or if it was even written about. But it is easy to catch on to what his nightmares are about. If you haven't read this series, you may not understand the dynamics of the Kalith and the Paladin. It is a good series, and it all comes down to the basic romance plot....tormented guy saved by the wonderful woman...all live happily ever after....right? It is just the path they use to get there that changes from one author to another. I was happy to see that Barak and Larem are adjusting to their new life in this world, i like their characters. And the Paladin's have captured another "bad guy" who is using both sides for his own greed. This series and her Talion series are not like anything i have read. It is not a page-turner but a nice book for an afternoon read. I will continue to read both series.
