Sweet Ruin (Immortals After Dark #15) by Kresley Cole

An immortal assassin is caught between desire and duty...

A foundling raised in a world of humans 

Growing up, orphaned Josephine didn’t know who or what she was—just that she was “bad,” an outcast with strange powers. Her baby brother Thaddeus was as perfect as she was flawed; protecting him became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo’s transition from angry girl... to would-be superhero... to enchanting, ruthless villain. 

A lethally sensual enforcer on a mission

A threat to the Møriør has brought archer Rune the Baneblood to the mortal realm to slay the oldest living Valkyrie. Whether by bow or in bed, he never fails to eliminate his target. Yet before he can strike, he encounters a vampiric creature whose beauty conceals a black heart. With one bite, she pierces him with aching pleasure, taking his forbidden blood -and jeopardizing the secrets of his brethren.

A boundless passion that will lead to sweet ruin...

Could this exquisite female be a spy sent by the very Valkyrie he hunts? Rune knows he must not trust Josephine, yet he’s unable to turn her away. Despite his millennia of sexual conquests, he can’t ignore the unfamiliar longing she arouses deep within him. When Jo betrays the identity of the one man she will die to protect, she and Rune become locked in a treacherous battle of wills that pits ultimate loyalty against unbridled lust.

My review:
Sweet Ruin is filled with what we love best about this series. Trash talking bad girl Jo. Sexy as heck really bad boy Rune. And snark with Nix. Jo has come up the hard way. Jo comes into her powers very young and unaware but she survives and now she is 25 and has her first encounters with the Lore. Rune is working for the bad guys and has been ordered to kill Nix. He is good but is he good enough? When Rune and Jo meet it is one thing after another with fun surprises along the way.  I really like Jo. If you like IAD you will love this book.
