Review: Rogue Rider by Larissa Ione
Published: November 20th 2012
The prophecies were there but no one listened. Until now. They are the Lords of Deliverance and they have the power to ward off Doomsday . . . or let it ride.
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 that Jillian can trust. But with hints of a troubling history of his own, he’s also the kind of man that can be very dangerous . . .
Reseph may not know his background, or why he mysteriously appeared in Jillian’s life, but he knows he wants to stay. Yet when Jillian’s neighbours 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 with death and destruction, 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?
I am so happy this is not the end of the Lords of Deliverance series! This is one of those wonderful paranormal romance series that just grabs you with the fascinating characters and the compelling plots. Rouge Ride is not my favorite of the Lords of Deliverance series but is comes in as a close second.
This book starts off almost as a small town story with a bit of paranormal thrown in. Jillian Cardiff lives by herself in a very remote farm. About a year ago she was savagely attacked and almost killed by demons. Now on her way home in the snow she comes across an unconscious man who is naked. When he finally wakes up he only remembers his name, Reseph. He doesn’t get his memory back until his family shows up. By then he and Jillian have feelings for each other but will she be able to love him once she finds out that he was behind her attack?
Oh yeah, this is one of those books that won’t let you go even after you are finished reading. This is a wonderful story about love and forgiveness. The characters are intriguing and the plot moves so nicely in this unique world that Ms. Ione has created. I am so looking forward to the next installment.
