You speak English flawlessly.” With a hint of an Irish accent. Intriguing.

“Gracias. Languages are easy. Not like the physics.”

What a half-assed conversation to be having in the middle of the ocean with a woman he’d just rescued from certain gang rape, being shot, and who knew what else. A curvy, luscious female whose virginity he’d just taken in front of four armed men. Talk about the best laid plans backfiring; Demon’s carefully plotted plan to capture the man who abused him, Pedro Nunez aka The Smiling Killer, was not off to a good start.

“What’s your name?”

“Jacinta Nunez.”

Jacinta claims to have lived her whole life in a cloistered convent. Claims she’s an orphan. Claims she’s only lived in the outside world for fifty-seven days. Yet she’s the mirror image of Pedro’s sister, Rosa. The sister Pedro murdered fifty-seven days ago.

There are no coincidences in life. Not for a SEAL.

Is Jacinta Pedro’s ultimate revenge on Demon?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: violence, voyeurism.

My Review:
I loved Demon Seed the next book in the Hades Squad series. From the very beginning Ms. Carlo throws her characters into the frying pan and their adventures continue throughout the book. It's a never ending roller coaster ride full of emotions and never ending twists and turns.

Demon is on a personal mission to seek revenge on an evil man from his past, Pedro.
Encountering a small group of armed men with two women outside the cave where Demon has stashed a lot of equipment is quite the surprise. The smaller of the two women has a familiar look, but Demon is too distracted trying to save his butt and the women from the armed men.

Demon is really a good guy and he tries to hide it with his rough exterior and bad boy activities. So when this petite woman shows that she can turn his stomach into knots, he's very surprised.

Jacinta da Silva is ready to take her final vows at the convent that she's lived in for as long as she can remember. Instead, she's told she needs to go out and live in the world, experience life. Jacinta is surprised but leaves the convent anyway. She also has a mission, to find her parents!

The book is very well written, the characters are full of emotions, dimension, and seem so real. The air between Demon and Jacinta seems to sizzle with excitement and tension during their entire journey. There is so much action and adventure inthis story, I never knew what was coming next, never a dull moment. Their relationship is constantly growing and getting better and better all through the book.

Pedro is the most vile, diabolical, despicable man around. The things he's done over the years are terrible. He's the villain a reader loves to hate and Ms. Carlo has written him perfectly.
And finally, Ms. Carlo reveals how Demon got his name. I can't wait to see who tames team leader, Satan, I'm sure it will be very delicious. I would strongly recommend all the books in the Hades Squad series and I hope you'll love them as much as I did.
