In the Thrill of the Night - Candice Hern

I read book #2 first and then went bass ackwards and read #1.  This one wasn't as good as book #2. It took almost the whole book before the hero figured out who he really wanted and that was only because the girl he was attached to found someone else.  So I felt like Merrianne was 2nd choice really.  And her little game at the end of "punishing" him was really childish.  I don't know if I'll read the rest of the series.
