After reading Touch of Temptation I wasn’t sure what was going to happen to Raine, whether she was going to become a helpless damsel in distress or she was going to change completely and be a tough kick ass heroine. Happily Raine became a happy medium of the two and I think it worked perfectly.
After Raine leaves the Watchmen compound and visits her parents she decides to carry out her own justice on find the ones responsible for killing her sister only she doesn’t expect Seth to track her down and make it impossible for her to say no to him helping her with her plan. Although Seth doesn’t really agree with what Raine is doing he wants her safe and will do anything to make sure that happens. Seth is an easy character to like; he has a code of honour that he really does stand by even after everything he’s been through which Raine doesn’t understand. She knows how much Seth despises vampires yet he wants to protect her and doesn’t want to see her hurt and although Raine has feelings for Seth she can’t get over what Seth used to do for the Collective nor how he treats the vampire half of herself. Seth can’t stand the idea of Raine biting him after what he suffered when he was a child but eventually he gets over it after some help from Ashe. It’s always great to have some Ashe in the Primal Instinct series. I really enjoyed the whole complex but not storyline with Raine and Seth and how they try to make their relationship work and the effort Seth goes to help Raine and to make her understand what he feels for her. It’s a sweet, yet deadly romance that brings a lot of information along for the ride.
“What he really wanted was to possess her in some kind of primal act of dominance, the need reminding him of the way the shifters he now called friends acted with their women.”
“And since he’d met Raine Spencer, everything had really gone to hell.”
Overall, another great addition to a truly great series that I’m enjoying more and more and am sad there is only one more book left in the series, Rush of Pleasure due out in June 2011.
