New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter captivates with a dark, tantalizing world of humans, otherworlders, and a powerful AIR agent consumed by his desire for a woman he can never have. . . .
With one caress, he can give unforgettable pleasure . . . or unending pain. . . .
Hector Dean is shaved, tattooed, and totally ripped—and he has a deadly secret. He is a walking weapon, capable of killing with a single brush of his fingertips. Little wonder he’s determined to remain on his own. But Noelle Tremain is a temptation like no other. She is beautiful and rich, with a party girl smile that hides a shocking vulnerability, and from the beginning his sizzling attraction to her is undeniable. For the first time, his stone-cold resistance is tested. But to be with her, he risks destroying her.
When a wealthy businessman is murdered in New Chicago’s seediest district, the two are partnered, and there’s no escaping what they both want: each other. Yet neither Hector nor Noelle knows what to fear more—the killer case, or their own lethal desires. . . .

Comments about Dark Taste of Rapture:
I really liked this book, Gena Showalter is a fantastic story teller who draws the reader into the story, as proof I have all her books. I know I'm a geek!
So far in this series Noelle is my favourite heroine, she spunky, funny, spoilt (grew up rich) and yet doesn't think she good enough for anyone.
Hector is a great hero to Noelle's heroine, he's dark, possessive, unspoilt (grew up poor) and doesn't care whether he's good enough for anyone or what anyone thinks of him.
In this book you go back in time to when Ava and Noelle start at the AIR taining camp and then jump forward to after they have graduated and are now agents. Gena is able to masterfully craft the story so that you don't get the sudden jump you get in some books that can give you whip lash, and you are left thinking "what just happened". Instead the story flows smoothly and effortlessly, allowing you to enjoy the story and characters.
If there is one thing that got one my nerve it was when Hector (not an actual quote) "We can't have sex or I might accidently kill you" to Noelle (however, that is my POV)
Apart from that it's a great story, fantastic characters (previous charcters popped up - yah) and I would recommend this book.
