The Santiago Trilogy by Catherine Wiltcher
***Hearts of Darkness***
He’s a criminal with no conscience. The whisper of a name, a faceless stranger… A man content to dwell in the shadows of his underworld.
I’m the light to his dark, an investigative reporter intent on exposing dangerous men like him. We were worlds apart until I caught his attention. Now I’m his captive, kept at the whim of a devil with no kindness or morality.
I may be an innocent but I have secrets too. For years I’ve been fighting a private war with the illegal drugs trade, with the cartel responsible for murdering my brother. I’m closer to revenge than I’ve ever been until his duplicity tears my life apart.
Ours is a relationship borne of hate, but we can’t deny the fire that rages between us.
Now I have two choices. Save his soul or lose myself to his darkness forever.
The FBI is forcing me apart from the man who haunts my dreams.
The man who stole me, broke me and made me his forever.
My deepest, darkest secret.
I may be ignorant to the worst of his savagery, to the tortured history that has driven the heartless criminal to such extremes, but I know exactly how his body feels as it sinks slowly into mine – stretching, conquering, completing. I know every hard angle, every dark trail of hair; every smooth, olive-hued plane as he molds himself to me like second skin.
The man I will never ever betray.
Six months apart.
I swore an oath to stay away and keep her safe.
Together we wiped my past from the face of this earth but another rose up in his place. An enemy more deadly, more determined. One who will stop at nothing to destroy me.
Damn this half-life that I’m forced to endure without her.
I run the risk of exposing her if I return.
I will lose myself to this darkness if I refuse.
***Hearts on Fire***
He came into my life like a raging storm.
The man I despised.
The killer with no conscience.
I fell as hard as a woman like me can fall.
When he bleeds, I feel his pain. When we kiss, I taste his tragedy. When he kills, my heart is stained with all the colors of his vengeance.
In the heat of the night we loved hard and became one.
I was the captor who became the captivated.
Her light was a blazing trail, illuminating the bullet holes that studded my darkness.
I betrayed but she forgave.
Now we’re standing on the threshold of hell and everyone around us is burning.
Trust no one.
Seek the truth.
We have no choice but to finish this war… Together.

Review by Paula:
I’m sad this trilogy has come to a end. But wow does it end in a bang! Intense overload! I had goosebumps while reading parts and even laughed. Overall my emotions were all over the place. Eve and Dante hot as ever and I fell even more in love with Dante. We see the past and present all come together. One of my favorite series ever. I would absolutely love to have Joseph’s book cause I wanna know what’s behind those eyes of his! Looking for a series that keeps you on your toes through every page? Don’t pass this series up! No spoilers here just hang on tight and welcome to the Devils playground aka Dante. 5/5 stars
