Good Books Touch of Darkness The Darkness Chosen series is...*rubs eyes* ...well, some have called it sweet torture; I on the other hand suffered my way through this book. I promised myself that I would not reread a book in 2012; so here I am .. reading new books ... new authors ... And paying the price.Don't get me wrong, Christine Dodd has an imagination that she proves easily in this series that is filled with a historical background of selling one's soul to the devil, a history of rape and dominance ... A back story of a family that ran away from it all and have survived hiding as well as preparing for the inevitable battle between ... *drum roll* ... Good and evil.Rurik is a fun character, shapeshifting hawk! Different and cool, eh? He is filled with conviction, passion and sexy yumminess to the tenth power baby! A charmer, he seduced the one and only Tasya into his bed and apparently under his hot and multiple-orgasmic throbbing skills. Where does that leave Tasya? Consumed with the fear of being overwhelmed and taken over."I can't predict the future, but I know this has just begun."There are several lines in this book that are more than worthy of a cheesy James Bond moment with a bit more romance that just makes you want to barf. The lines will surely make a lot of women whimper in the unfilled romance in their own lives...Me? Cheesy!"You and I were reborn from Mother Earth, clawing our way out of the birth canal and into precarious life."Finally, the eluding Tasya Hunnisomethingorother pops back into Rurik's life and he is angry and ready to remind her of the lust and desire that she felt with him. Fortunate for the back story of this book, she has this dark past filled with secret convictions of her own. She's running towards the deadly historical force, the same force Rurik hides from...This leaves the interesting couple of a clash of motivation.Still running from Rurik, running from the assassin psycho raping baddudes, running from ...hell every thing, they are forced to endure one another's company; the perfect chance for Rurik to remind her of who she is dealing with. "Because I want every breath you take to be empty unless you're close enough to smell me. Every word you speak to be unimportant unless it's to me. Every sound you hear empty unless it's my voice. I want you to remember that whatever pleasure you have from now on, you'll have it from me."Bit much, isn't it? Damned sexy though!I recommend this book to...mature adults only. The violence is fun and descriptive, although brief. The sexual content is entirely too sporadic for my taste, yet there is mild content found between the pages ...somewhere.I do not recommend this book to immature eyes.~happy reading!

The Darkness Chosen series is rubs eyes well, some have called it sweet torture I on the other hand suffered my way through this book I promised myself that I would not reread a book in 2012 so here I am reading new books new authors And paying the price.Don t get me wrong, Christine Dodd has an imagination that she proves easily in this series that is filled with a historical background of selling one s soul to the devil, a history of rape and dominance A back story of a family that ran away fr [...]


  2. Christina Dodd has not accomplished very much with her effort in Touch of Darkness Yes Paranormal Romance books are very popular, but that does not mean you should just write one because you write regular Romance In Touch of Darkness it become very obvious of the author the Dodd is trying to copy and she does a very poor job I wouldn t recommended this book if you are looking for a good Paranormal Romance book to get lost in during the Holidays There are so many authors of there who write this [...]


  3. I will give Christina Dodd this much, she sure does have a penchant for writing consensual rape scenes.I gave this second book in the Darkness Chosen series a shot despite reservations after having read the first book, which also contained such sex scenes Apparently I need to listen to myself closely.There are ways to write scenes of sexual domination that don t rely on the woman saying no, not once, not twice but three times before she ultimately succumbs to the man because he s right and oh s [...]


  4. There were some things I liked about this book but much that I didn t I know that many have told me that this book and the first were very similar, but for me they had almost nothing in common.I didn t like it that the story began when they had already met, because we lost all the details about how they met And it wasn t like with the first book where we knew they knew each other for a long time In this one they met but we have very little info about the the event Also I didn t like it that she [...]


  5. Rurik Wilder is determined to break the curse on his family and save his father s soul He knows he s close to finding the missing piece of the holy icon that can accomplish all that All clues point to a cave, an ancient warrior s grave, on a small Scottish island, but Rurik isn t the only one adamant on finding that icon.Photographer and writer Tasya Hunnicutt wants to find the icon to provide irrefutable proof on the Varinskis, the family that killed her parents Unfortunately for her, Rurik, he [...]


  6. 2,5 5 sonunda bitti ama bende bittim ok s k c yd lk kitaptan sonra bir heves ngilizce devam edeyim dedim seriye ama bu kitapta ara vere vere bi hal oldum ve d rd okur muyum Okursam ne zaman olur bu Allah bilir.


  7. Touch of Darkness wasn t the most fantastic book I ve ever read, but it definitely didn t need a Viking funeral in the kiddie pool, which is always a good thing.The situations is much the same for the Wilder family when we pick up their story Rurik, after finding out his archaeological dig in Scotland is all over the news, which can alert his murderous relatives, the Varinksis, to the plan to recover the stolen icons of the Madonna and free their father Konstantine from the pact with the devil w [...]


  8. I have to give credit to Christina Dodd, she really redeemed herself as a great writer because I was a bit disappointed with her Fortune Hunters series In her second work, she showed how versatile she could be with this hot second installment in the Darkness Chosen series I liked this better than the first one, it had adventure, suspense, action, humor, and the right amount of sex just the way I liked them The story started where the first left off, with Rurik rushing to a Scotland site where a [...]


  9. I got this book on Audible for super cheap and I ve had it in my library for a while I didn t realize it was a book 2 to a series, which I either applaud the author on or curse myself for, because I usually research books a little before I buy The story line is good but the narrator was horrendous, hence the reason for the 3 stars I also found some of the interactions between the 2 MC s a little strange at times If you decide you want to read this book do it the old fashioned way and not on audi [...]


  10. This is the second book in this series It was about a family from Russia that makes a pact with the devil In return, they can shapeshift One branch of the family comes to America and is trying to break the pact The only way they can break the pact is for the four pieces of an icon to be brought back together by the loves of the family s sons But the family in Russia does not want the pact broken and will do anything to stop the four icon pieces from being brought back together.



  11. Rurik must find the missing piece of the holy icon that must be put together in order to save his father s life and break the family curse Tasya is also searching for the same icon piece, but Rurik is unaware that she is on the same hunt Rurik is able to shift into a powerful bird of prey, the Hawk They know each other from a previous relationship They work together to complete their task Good story and a happy ending


  12. Wow this book was really great I didn t think the character as a hawk could have been successful after reading about a wolf and panther but it worked for me The fight scenes could have been a bit dynamic but all others than made up for some uninspired fighting by the hawk A good read all around from Ms Dodd.Now on to book 4.


  13. This is another series I got behind in reading, but thank goodness there s only four books in the series It won t be that hard to catch up with it With this second book down, I m enjoying the series so far, and it should only get interesting considering the hero of the next book hasn t been heard from for years and the last hero er, heroine uh, well, since I haven t looked ahead I m not sure what s going to happen I m looking forward to it, though.Besides the interesting premise of this series, [...]


  14. This novel was just as good as the first one in this series, if not better than it It had everything that I was looking for in a novel, and the fact that I also own it says a lot as well I ve read this novel two or three times now and I still love it Even though I already know exactly what s going to happen, I still love rereading it It just hooks me in every time and then it s hard for me to put it down Which is exactly what I need from a novel from time to time.Rurik has a fear that s been hol [...]

  18. I was really hoping to like this book than the first in the series Unfortunately it seems like I had even issues with this one that the last It started off pretty good Rurik and Tasya have a bit of history We don t learn much about their history, unfortunately, except for the fact that they shared one scorching night in bed before Tasya ran off, frightened by her feelings for him Rurik is understandably mad about the whole thing and wants to punish her by making her want him even Of course, t [...]

  20.

  21. My opinion I liked this book quite a bit than the first one My biggest problem with the first book was how mousy Ann was, and the ridiculous way she tried to seduce Jasha at the beginning But Tasya is completely different, very strong and sure of herselfd she seems to have a love hate relationship with Rurik Wilder After having spent an erotic night together, Tasya ran out on Rurik and they hadn t seen each other since But when Rurik returns to his dig site, he finds Tasya there Soon the Varins [...]

  27. This was a book that started off strong for me but then it lost my focus around midway into it The plot was decent, the characters flat and the book seems very repetitive I don t know if I maybe should have read the first one to get a bit of the storyline or if it would have been similar to this one What I did like about the story was the idea a family was sold to the Devil a reversal almost of Van Helsing for magical powers that corrupted them even And of course the age old love can save anyt [...]


  28. That was just flat out BORING I mean, what a drag I had to force myself to read it all the way through My main issue were the main characters, Rurik and Tasya, they were flat, lifeless and, ugh, boring I didn t understand them or their motivations and I certainly didn t understand their relationship I never really got why Tasya was stuck up and wanted nothing to do with Rurik Why she kept on refusing him and then suddenly, BAM, out of the blue with no warning whatsoever, she suddenly loved him D [...]


  29. This one was sitting on a shelf and I picked it up with no expectations Sadly, it is the second in the series so I was a little lost with some parts of the story but Christina Dodd clues the reader in even if they have missed out This novel is a signet romance, and well within the expectations of a signet romance A hint of the mystical, a little bit of the wild shapechanging magic, and hot and heavy scenes, this book had a lot of good plot points and story I didn t like the hot and heavy scenes, [...]
