Shayla Black-- "Seduce Me in Shadow" (Doomsday Brethren novel)

Ex-marine Caden Mactavish has shunned his magical heritage all his life, but he will do anything to heal his desperately ill brother, a doomsday Brethren warrior in mourning for his missing mate. Posing as a photographer, Caden must convince firecracker tabloid reporter Sydney Blair to reveal the source of her recent expose on a supernatural power clash. Unfortunately, keeping his hands off the sizzling redhead proves as hard as getting them onto the potent and mystical doomsday Diary he discovers at her bedside. A bloody rebellion led by an evil, power-hungry wizard is imminent. If Sydney divulges the book's existence, she will jeopardize magickind's most deeply guarded secrets and become the ruthless wizard's number one target. Caden has never trusted magic's cruel and dangerous powers, but he will protect Sydney with his life and magic--even if it means risking his heart.

***Ok, I admit I wasn't going to read the rest of this series, but left with little else to read, I read on. There is an actual story moving along in this series, not a great one mind you, but there is a story. I like the first book better than this one, I didn't get attached to this couple. But I was given the first 3 books in this series, so i figured i should read them in order to be able to follow the story. Mathias is still on the loose, and the Brethren are still grasping at straws to find a way to defeat him. Same plan as the first book, sort of. But I disliked the part of the story regarding energy surrogates and Sabelle using her body to help Lucan. It all seemed a little barbaric and the repeated use of the term "mounting" when referring to a sexual encounter takes all the romance out it. (and don't get me started on the actual titles for these books) I hope the next book is better...
