Assassin's Touch
Assassin's Touch - Laurie London

Neyla was found to have an ability after a horrific accident. She is conscripted into military service. While serving, she is harnessed and later attacked. Rickard was there/found her and took her. Rickard's family was murdered and he is out for revenge.
I would have liked more background information and world building. There is some that happens. I got a very general feel to the world. Cascadia is a world in another dimension, parallel to Pacifica, accessed through a portal. Nothing metal can go through without killing the one that carries it. There is magic in Cascadia. Pacifica is a high tech world, Cascadia is the opposite.
I liked the revelations that occur, there are some secrets. The romance was not quite instant, but was foretold with visions. Overall, I would have liked to learn more about the world. I am interested enough to read the next (Rogue's Passion).

Poorly Structured
Assassin's Touch - Laurie London

Assassin's Touch was a strange mash of paranormal romance set in a two worlds. It was the hero's world that was odd. His world is like a medieval period with Special Op warriors. The romance felt forced. The goals and motivations of the bad guys their purpose didn't make any sense.

There had been a kernal of a good story here. The potential! The potential! But this sadly unstructured novella is an example of poor execution, amongst other things.

Review: Rebel’s Desire (Iron Portal #4) by Laurie London
Rebel's Desire - Laurie London
Rebel's Desire 

 Iron Portal #4  
 Laurie London  
 Paranormal Romance - Magic  
 LB Books  
 July 15th 2015  
 Bought part of the Dark and Damaged Box Set  


New York Times bestselling author Laurie London presents REBEL'S DESIRE, the fourth book in the Iron Portal paranormal romance series. Enter a darkly sensual world where secret portals separate modern and ancient realms, band-of-brother heroes with special ability Talents fight evil together, and sworn enemies dare to become passionate lovers. 

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. 


Authors Note: All of the Iron Portal books are standalone titles with no cliffhangers. Each one has a new couple and story-arc. They are hot paranormal romances with band-of-brother heroes, strong heroines, special ability Talents, lots of suspense and danger, and plenty of sexy times. I hope you enjoy them! 


Book 1: Assassin's Touch - Rickert and Neyla 
Book 2: Rogue's Passion - Asher and Olivia 
Book 3: Warrior's Heart - Vince and Zara 
Book 4: Rebel's Desire - Toryn and Keely 





** Read as part of the Dark and Damaged: Eight Tortured Heroes of Paranormal Romance **

~ 4 Rebel’s Desire Stars ~


Rebel’s Desire is book four in the Iron Portal series by Laurie London. We are given a compelling world, plot, and characters.


I was pulled back into this fabulous and intriguing world. The concept is great with two worlds divided by hidden portals, one modern and one medieval. The Cascadians (medieval) have something the Pacificans (modern) want – Talents people with special abilities. These two separate worlds are waring with each other. The author does a deceit job explaining all of this, but I think the series is best read in order to get the full scope of what is going on.


Toryn, is part of the Cascadian Iron Guild and has some major trust issues after his love betrayed him. Falling for him is bound to have a few bumps along the way. Keely, is a Talent who grew up in the Pacificans world. She does not know the extent of her powers, but because of them her and her sister where cast out of their home as teenagers. She’s got daddy issues and her sister is missing.


These two end up working together and as they spend more time together they both learn to open up and heal. The romance is sweet and quick with some very hot and steamy moments. The author also features some familiar faces and that is always enjoyable.


Rebel’s Desire was a good read and I am looking forward to more installments in the Iron Portal series.
