Review: Assassin’s Touch (Iron Portal, #1) by Laurie London

Assassin’s Touch

Two worlds. Two enemies. 
Haunted by loss, Cascadian assassin Rickert D’Angelus is on a mission of vengeance. Determined to stop the Pacifican army from finding a portal to his world, he leads a group of warriors into New Seattle with one goal—to kill all Pacifican soldiers.
Neyla Trihorn had the perfect life until a deadly accident revealed her latent para-abilities. Now, the former fashion designer is the Pacifican army’s hottest commodity in their fight against the invaders. 
When Rickert discovers a beautiful, unconscious soldier on a cold mountain ledge near the portal, he realizes she’s a Protection-Talent and cannot be killed. To prevent the army from using her skills again, he takes her as his prisoner instead.

One fated touch.
But when he pulls her into his arms, a sexy and compelling vision appears, awakening something inside him. Something he can’t ignore. 
Torn between duty and passion, Rickert must decide if the vision is a Talent trick designed to foil the enemy or the answer to his deepest desires.


5 Stars ~ Assassin’s Touch (Iron Portal #1) 
by Laurie London

I got this book as part of the Dark and Dangerous, Six-in-One Hot Paranormal Romances Boxed Set.

Assassin’s Touch is book one in the Iron Portal series by Laurie London. This is the first time for me reading anything Laurie London and I enjoyed everything! What a fantastic amazing read! From the first sentence I was pulled in until the very end. I loved everything about this book from the two separate worlds waring with each other, the world building, plot and characters.

A successful mix of hot steamy sex, romance and adventure set in two worlds linked by a portal, one which is modern and the other almost medieval in nature. This book follows the story of Rickert, an Iron Guild Warrior and Neyla, a beautiful woman with a Protection-Talent.

Rickert and Neyla are from two different worlds, but fate has a plan for these two that will change there life and others. These two worked well together. They are brilliantly defined. How fate tells them they are meant to be was wonderful and once they hook up the bedroom gets steamy and hot.The writing is rich, descriptive and flows effortlessly. The plot is refreshing and interesting. 

Assassin’s Touch had a great balance of everything that I like to keep me interested. We get Action, Adventure, Heart-Ace, and Romance. I will be checking out more books from this author and recommend this series.
