Dark Taste of Rapture by Gena Showalter

Dark Taste of Rapture (2011), the sixth book in Gena Showalter's Alien Huntress series, is snarky and very entertaining.

Rich, beautiful AIR agent Noelle Tremain is an expert at keeping people at a distance. With her best friend now married, she's lonely. Dangerous AIR Agent Hector Dean is equally expert at keeping people at a distance. Just as lonely as Noelle, the woman he wants as much more than a work associate, Hector has reason to fear that he'll literally burn her to ashes if he lets her too close.

Partnered to solve a crime involving the death of one of the new wave wealthy, how can either one of them resist the other?

I enjoyed reading this story of two damaged people who come from abusive backgrounds finding a way to be together.

My overall personal rating of Dark Taste of Rapture is a B.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
