Burning Darkness (Offspring) : They live ordinary lives, but they are extraordinary. They are the Offspring, children of a mysterious experiment gone awry - and they are in terrible danger. A government-trained assassin, Fonda Raine has her sights locked on her latest target: Eric Aruda, one of the rogue Offspring - a pyrokenetic who can create fires with just a thought. But Fonda has awesome powers of her own - and her ability to astral project and be in two places at one time enables her to put herself exactly where she wants to be . . . in Eric's bed. Eric is stunned and pleased by the inexplicable appearance of the mysterious enchantress, unaware that Fonda plans to seduce him, throw him off his guard, and then eliminate him. But the game changes radically with the arrival of an assassin from hell with orders to destroy them both. And suddenly Fonda and Eric have only two choices: to join forces or go down in flames.
