Book cover of Affinity for Pain by R.E. JohnsonIt was so stupid, but Hope knew that if she took his hand, that was it.

If she took what was offered, there was no going back. Her pulse thundered in her ears. She could barely hear herself think. Hope started to sweat and too many sensations flooded her. The memory of the bullet graze, the ache coming from Ciaran’s knee buzzed in her own, the cold air made her skin ripple, the hardwood pushed against her ankle bones, the pressure in her knees from sitting on them. It all pressed down harder and harder.

Then, she took Ciaran’s hand and followed him upstairs.

About the Book:

Hope Turner is the ideal human-hunting assassin, and she is damn good at her job. A daughter of the Chakal, a race of hybrid demons lacking physical sensation and emotion, Hope was always brutally efficient in her work. However, that changed when Hope is assigned to take down Ciaran O-Connor – a stubborn, strong-willed bodyguard with a dark past and severe PTSD.

He also happens to be her soulmate.

When the omaeriku – an inescapable soulmate bond – takes hold of her, Hope is hit with emotions and physical sensation for the first time in her life. Unable to kill Ciaran and ending up on her former boss’s hit list, Hope must escape with Ciaran into hiding. Immediately, the chemistry between Hope and Ciaran is electric. However, they must focus on finding a way to take down Marcus Dentry, their newfound common enemy who was both Hope’s former boss and Ciaran’s former captor and torturer. Can Hope learn how to handle her sudden emotions or will it drive her away from the only person who can make her feel? And can they track down Marcus Dentry before Marcus takes them down first?
