Insatiable Desire by Rita Herron

This is the first book in what I believe is to be a new series by Rita Herron. This is my first book by Herron and its classified as a paranormal romance, which is one of my favorite genres. I wouldn’t put this into the paranormal romance category however, I would classify it as a paranormal / horror with some romance thrown in.

Clarissa King is a psychic. She can commune with the deceased and has been able to do so since she was a child. Her mother, and her Grandmother before her all had this “gift”. Clarissa never thought of it as a gift however, it was always more like a curse. One of her only friends was a boy named Vincent, who struggled with his own inner demons. Literally. Vincent’s father was a demon, and his mother an Angel of Light. When he was a child, his father kills his mother and in her honor, Vincent kills his father. Little does he know that his fathers’ death will haunt him for years to come.

Fast forward 20 years, and Vincent is an FBI agent called into assist on a possible serial killer case in his old hometown of Eerie. When he gets there he expects Clarissa to be the same waif that he left years ago, so imagine his surprise to see a beautiful, sexy woman waiting for him. Clarissa convinces him that the spirits of the deceased are telling her that something supernaturally evil is going on. At first Vincent doesn’t believe her, but as events develop, he starts to change his mind. Will they be able to work together to get to the bottom of these murders, or will their attraction for one another get in the way of solving this case?

The romance in this book is abrupt and harsh, not a slow build that gets stronger as the book goes on. It was hard for me to believe that Clarissa cared for Vincent with the cruel way he treated her throughout most of the book. The book also contains a lot of graphic violence towards people and animals, and it goes into just a little bit too much detail for my taste. However, if you like a good dose of horror and suspense mixed in with some paranormal romance, this book is definitely for you. Overall, this book was interesting, but I don’t know that I would pick up the next book in this series.
