Demon hunter Zenon lives with a dark secret. When he escaped Hell, he didn’t leave alone—and he’ll do anything to keep the shameful reason hidden. But when an intoxicating demi-demon, new to her powers, has him breaking all his own rules just to be near her, he knows he’s in serious trouble.
Painfully aware of being different, Mia Westbrook has always kept herself apart from others. Yet her new demon life comes with strings attached, namely one scarred and broodingly seductive knight who storms into her world—and her heart—and may just be her perfect match.
But a formidable evil has been watching, and is determined to tear them apart. They want Zenon back in Hell, with them, where he belongs…
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Holy-effing-crap! Is the plot thickening or what???
After being completely drawn into the story of the Knights of Hell series with Knight’s Redemption, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Knight’s Salvation.
When I realized it was Zenon’s story, I knew we were going to get one heck of a tortured hero. Even though I was prepared for it to be rough, it damn well broke my heart time and again. So, for all those readers who love a tormented soul as the main character, you don’t want to miss this one.
Mia is not only different from humans, as she is a demi-demon, but she is special in that world too. She had been waiting for the moment her powers would kick in, but nothing prepared her for the Knight that would turn her world upside down.
Mia was shy and quiet, having spent all her life not really living it. Being inexperienced made her a bit too cautious at times, but I really liked how she handled Zenon’s whole attitude towards her.
To say Zenon had a rough start in life is putting it lightly, and I’d advise those who don’t tolerate there being darker aspects View Spoiler » abuse and forced submissions « Hide Spoiler in their stories, maybe abstain from this one.
Zenon and Mia’s attraction was undeniable, and it warmed my heart when Zenon could let his walls down and enjoy being with Mia. They were the cutest most adorable pair.
With lots of action, suspense and sexy hot shenanigans, the story arc keeps unraveling and becoming more intriguing with some really unexpected twists and revelations thrown in at the end. Knight’s Salvation is by no means an easy story to read, but totally worth the wrenching of one’s guts in the end and I can’t wait to see what is coming next!

“I have to do something, Mia.” As he spoke, the fierce mask fell away. He looked almost boyish then, shy, uncertain.
Licking her lips, she curled her fingers into the wall, trapping them behind her back. “Okay.” She didn’t know what was going on, but whatever was about to happen, she knew she wanted it.
“Please, just…you can’t touch me,” he said.
“I told you I wouldn’t,” she whispered.
He surprised her by running gentle, barely there fingers down the side of her face and across her jaw. “You’re beautiful.”
Was he going to kiss her? She didn’t move, didn’t breathe, wanting to taste him more than anything she’d ever wanted in her entire life.
His hands moved to the wall, either side of her head, and his gaze dropped to her mouth.
Oh my God.
He leaned in.
She forced herself not to squirm as his lips hovered above hers for several seconds, his breath mingling with hers. It took all her strength not to close the gap. But finally, he did, his lips coming down on hers, dry and soft and warm.
His entire body jerked at the contact, and he went completely still, breath puffing in and out of his nose.
Please, don’t stop.
But he didn’t. Slowly, ever so slowly, he opened his mouth. Mia’s heart was pounding when he finally made a rough sound and ran his tongue across her top lip.
His big body shuddered. “Open,” he said against her mouth.
