J. K. Beck - When Wicked Craves

Petra Lang is cursed never to love. One touch of her skin unleashes the vilest demons. Sentenced to death by the Shadow authorities, who fear she'll turn her curse against them, Petra is rescued by vampire advocate Nicholas Montegue. As their bodies merge and transform into mist, Petra feels an erotic longing.

Nicholas risked his own life to save Petra, yet he knows he can never give in to the explosive attraction he feels for her. But the deep yearning they share tempts them. Together, they must find a way to lift the curse. For only a love this strong has the power to overcome such monstrous evil.

Comment: This 3rd book isn't as good as the others in my opinion. But it offers some complex difficulties: how to stop a curse and how to help a friend.
In the end there are some surprises, which is good, because we feel eager to read more. Thankfully, there are 3 more books to be published next year.
I don't think this romance was a well done as the previous ones. First, it was too quick, second it was the main female caharacter's first time, which begs for more time and certainty I think, and in this case although we know she wants to be with him, I still have my doubts about the whole thing, I wasn't convinced. I guess I wanted more feelings, more despair over that issue.
In the end it was a good read, it surely entertains, but I kind of wanted to see romance, considering this is called praranormal romance....
