In a world on the brink of chaos, passion and vengeance collide …
**Summary taken from Goodreads**
After six months in hell, Julian Castille has returned to the world a changed man. No longer the calm, powerful CEO, but a shifter fully embraced by the blood of his clan. Julian has one goal: find the key to the portal that stands between the human realm and unprecedented darkness—and win back the pieces of his soul. The last thing he needs is a distraction like the beautiful, enigmatic Jaden DaCosta.
Three years ago, a forbidden night of passion left Jaden forever altered: mated to Julian Castille–bound to a man who despises her. But the temptation to trust this darker, more savage—and more captivating—Julian is overwhelming. And as they fight for their immortal souls, their insatiable desire for each other may prove their fatal undoing…

There aren't many book series that can hold my attention these days. Too many choices that once a book is read, it's cast aside and onto the next. Sad to say really, but true. I only have a handful of book series i do come back to if i want an enjoyable read, for it to keep me interested.
And Juliana Stone's Jaguar Warriors series is one of them. How i love those Jaguars
His Darkest Salvation, is a raw gritty action packed book and tells the story of Julian and Jaden. Better known as a CEO, more comfortable in armani suits than his own Jaguar fur, Julian is now a changed man after being trapped in hell having his soul carved out.
What is it about a tortured hero that appeals to me? Julian is the epitome of tortured. He's not a Warrior, but wow does Juliana Stone weave an awesome tale for this Jaguar as he struggles and fights to regain the pieces of his soul that was taken from him. While in previous books "alpha male" wasn't what i'd have used to describe him, in Salvation he brought IT. Mister GQ CEO now fully embraces his animal side and woe anyone who gets in the way of what he wants.
This author writes heroines that i don't automatically hate. And that is a great thing! Most female leads irritate the hell out of me, but i liked Jaden. I felt sorry for the dilemma she was in, torn between her family name and the man she has bonded with. Right from the beginning the heat between characters is apparent, they have wonderful chemistry that kept me reading page after page.
He was edgy, dark -- the word sinister came to mind - Jaden's description of Julian
In that moment, nothing existed but the two of them. And even though it was all wrong and dark and humiliating, deep inside, the cat began to purr.
Another aspect of Salvation i loved was Declan! Oh the man of magic, Love! He featured along with Julian to regain his soul too, and it's his book Wicked Road to Hell up next in Juliana Stone's new series "League of Guardians" Finally! i've waited a long time for Declan's story. Cannot.Wait!
Anyone new to the Jaguar Warrior series, i'd say go and read book one first, you really wont regret it. Heroes to enjoy in all their alpha status, action packed intense and sexy stories. Truly wonderful.
I give His Darkest Salvation by Juliana Stone 4.5 Sparkles out of 5. TEAM JAGUAR!
His Darkest Salvation is released July 26th,2011
