Synopsis (Goodreads):
Tormented by a savage past and shattered by a bitter betrayal, Iron Guild warrior Toryn Flynn trusts no one and cares about nothing except the battle against their enemies. His target: a mobster who finances deadly missions into Cascadia.

Kicked out of the house by her puritanical father, Keely Weber and her sister run a bookstore and fortune-telling business in an underground district in New Seattle—until a powerful man who controls the area kidnaps Keely’s sister to sell her into the Talent sex-trade.

When a beautiful woman literally falls into his arms, Toryn realizes she holds the key to his success. Keely will do anything to rescue her sister…including taking risks with a dangerously sexy man who pushes all her buttons.

From the gritty streets of the city’s underbelly to a sexual-fantasy-themed island, passions ignite. But with evil surrounding them and time running out, Toryn must decide whether to sacrifice the woman he’s falling for or dare to trust his heart again.
Thoughts on Rebel's Desire: Oh, Toryn. Things aren't all roses and puppies for the warrior who's been betrayed by a woman he's loved before. Which means falling for Keely has more than a few speed bumps as Toryn has to come to terms with trusting his heart and instincts when it comes to someone who could hurt him.

Meanwhile, Keely's in a tough spot. Between her daddy issues (the guy is no saint!) and her sister's forced involvement with a very bad man, she's in a fragile emotional place. Toryn pushes all her buttons, but he also has the potential to hurt her badly.

Naturally, the two are smokin' together. Because a rocky relationship without hot sex is hardly worth pursuing. At least in my book.

I enjoyed getting to see some familiar faces and the seedier side of New Seattle. Sean's story gave me a sad face. I'd love to see him get to a happy place at some point.

A girl can wish, can't she?
