Karina Cooper is the author of the Dark Mission trilogy, and the first two books are tough and super-steamy. As she says on her website, they're "Wild Turkey with a bullet in the bottom of the glass."
The first in the series, Blood of the Wicked, came out in May and was quickly followed by Lure of the Wicked in June. The third, All Things Wicked, is scheduled for January 2012.
The Dark Mission series is considered paranormal romance, but as Trisha says during the interview below, it's more like "post-apocalyptic romance." The books are set in a rebuilt city, 50 years after a worldwide disaster, in a society where witches are hunted and killed.
