Annette McCleave--bound by Darkness (soul Gatherer Novel)

Soul Gatherer Brian Webster has long lived with the guilt of his failure to save his teenage sister. When another girl dies in his arms as she protects an ancient coin from a demon, he takes up her cause. The coin is one of thirty pieces of silver paid to Judas. United, the coins are a dark relic of immense power, and in the wrong hands, they could destroy civilization.

Lena Sharpe is on her own mission to find the Judas coins. A Soul Gatherer by day and a thief by night, she's negotiated the most important deal of her life. When Brian intervenes and kidnaps her to obtain the coins, she attempts to escape. But the brazen warrior is unrelenting, as he is fearful that the beautiful felon has made a pact with the devil himself. And he's not entirely wrong.

Bound together by burning desire and a similar darkness in their hearts, they race against time to recover the missing coins. But as the truth behind Lena's bargain surfaces, Brian is faced with a desperate choice to save one or save many...

*** (3 stars)
Liked it, didn't love it. This book didn't seem to have the same intensity as the first. Brian was too likable, not brooding enough. And Lena's constant escaping was a little tiring. I was more interested in the story line happening with Carlos and Emily. Something is seriously wrong with him and is tweaking my curiosity. Brian and Lena are an ok couple, not the best romance I've ever read, but not the worse. I will still keep reading the series. The basis of this series is unique and interesting enough to keep my interest. I like that even though it has a religious basis, it's really about good and evil and the decisions we all make in our lives. It's nice that they get the chance to redeem themselves.
