Dark Secrets (Arcane, #2) - Shona Husk
First up, the cover is perfect for the story. It's told first person by the hero Haidyn. Or maybe he's a bit of an anti-hero? Either way, he has that brooding sexy look of the cover.

The story is dark, intense, but a romance. I had to read on and know how things turned out. *By romance, I mean love is motivational and there is a happy ending - I hope that's not a spoiler?

Because I'd read "Dark Vow", I knew the world of "Dark Secrets". It's an intriguing and unique world. Wild West with a fantasy edgy steampunkish vibe. The book has style.
