J.K. Beck--When Wicked Craves (Shadow Keepers)

Their love could bring the most potent pleasure—or the darkest nightmare. — A danger to both the human and shadow communities, Petra Lang is cursed never to love. For one touch of her skin unleashes the vilest demons imaginable. Sentenced to death by the shadow authorities, who fear she’ll turn her curse against them, Petra is rescued at the last instant by vampire advocate Nicholas Montegue. As their bodies merge and transform into mist, Petra feels an urgent erotic longing.

Nicholas fought long and hard to save Petra—and nearly paid the ultimate price. He risked his own life to spare hers, yet he knows he can never give in to the explosive attraction he feels for her. But the deep yearning they share can only be deferred for so long. Together, they must find a way to lift the curse. For only a love this strong has the power to overcome such monstrous evil.

**** (4 stars)
Excellent book, not the extreme page turner as the first two. But still a great story. Nicholas has been an intriguing character through the first two books, now he gets his own story. Petra is an unknown, there is no one else like her. And like her curse, she is isolated from the world. She helped Nicholas and his friends in the second book, and now must help them correct the choice she had to make to free them. Their story is passionate in almost a simple "first love" kind of way, but a great mystery and one i really enjoyed, can't wait for the 4th book.
