Excerpt: Chapter 1
"Jillian Cardiff came to this remote mountain town to forget the demon attack that almost killed her. Instead, she rescues-and falls for-a gorgeous stranger who has no memory of anything other than his name. Handsome, charming, and protective, Reseph seems like the kind of man whom Jillian can trust. But with hints of a troubling history of his own, he's also the kind of man who can be very dangerous . . .
Reseph may not know why he mysteriously appeared in Jillian's life, but he knows he wants to stay. Yet when Jillian's neighbors are killed, and demon hunters arrive on the scene, Reseph fears that he's putting Jillian in danger. And once it's revealed that Reseph is also Pestilence, the Horseman responsible for ravaging the world, he and Jillian must face the greatest challenge of all: Can they forget the horrors of a chilling past to save the future they both desire?" ~ From Goodreads
Sometimes you know from the very beginning that you're going to love a book, and Rogue Rider started so great I was pumped to read every single bit of this book! Here you have a look too of Seph naked in the woods:
He opened his eyes, but he saw…nothing. Groaning, he shifted, because he seemed to be face-down. Yeah…he was doing a face-plant, all right. But where was he? All he could see was snow. No, that wasn't true; he could see trees laden with snow. And snow banks laden with snow. And snow laden with more fucking snow.
So he was in a forest…with snow. But where? Why?
And who the hell was he?
The name slurred through his ears as if uttered by a drunk man.
Sounded vaguely familiar, he supposed. Reseph. Okay, he could work with that. Especially since no other names popped into his head.
Weakly, he tried to push himself to his knees, but his arms wobbled like rubber, and he kept falling on his face. After four tries, he gave up and just lay there, panting and shivering.
Somewhere overhead, an owl hooted, and a few minutes later, a wolf howled into the growing darkness. Reseph took comfort in the sounds, because they meant he wasn't alone. Sure, the owl might fly over and shit on him, and the wolf might eat him alive, but at least he’d have company for a little while.
He didn't know much about himself, but he knew he didn't like to be alone.
He also did not like snow.
Curious then, how he’d ended up alone in the snow. Had someone abandoned him here? A tremor of anxiety shook his insides as hard as the cold was shaking him on the outside. Surely someone was looking for him.
He held onto that hope as he gradually became aware of a gnawing ache in his bones, accompanied by a stabbing pain in his head. Looked like he was in for a little unconsciousness. Cool. Because right now, he was both freezing and burning up, hurting and numb. It sucked.
Yep, passing out would be a good thing.
Real. Fucking. Good.
Are you as giddy as I was to sink my teeth into more!? Not to mention... oh,ahem, better not go there... * clears throat * So, as mentioned above I was psyched to read all of this! I hadn't read the first three books in the series but that didn't deter me in any way, it was so good! And I think the amnesia plot helped as well. Both me and Seph were clueless of what was going on in the world and with him and his evil demon side.
Oh boy, Seph was bit of a sensory overload to put it mildly! Usually blond guys don't do it for me but... man, Seph sure did! Tall, sexy, predatory, suggestive, muscled, hot, handsome, playboy stud muffin of a half-demon... I'm running out of sexy synonyms with this one! Let's face it ladies we like a bad boy, and reformed super bad boy...? Hell yeah! Sure there is mega load of package with the dude but he sure makes it up in bed. Okay so by now you know I'm totally crushing on Reseph... I won't try to hide it, just never mind the cardboard cut-out in my closet. What was that? What closet?
The romance with Jillian and Reseph had the sweetness of a new start, redemption and peace for Seph who's demon had been causing near Apocalyptic destruction before his memory wipe. But to balance that out it was incredibly hot and sexy the way these two had chemistry! Also Jillian was an absolutely joy to read, smart, confident and putting breaks on Seph's advances. Very entertaining!
I always find it hard to review my absolutely favorites as I just wanna gush how great it was, how hot the guy, how sassy the girl and how hot the romance! Rogue Rider got all of that and more. Enough of me loving this book and more of me moving my ass to find the previous three books!
