After being rescued from the Underworld, Gryphon is plagued by strange voices and an evil foreboding. He believes that his only hope for salvation is to track down the goddess who cursed him…until he meets Maelea.
A prisoner with no bars, Maelea encounters Gryphon on her quest to find Olympus. He’s about to test her loyalty to the gods, and she’s ready to find out if he still has a heart worth saving…
“Love is nice, but it’s fleeting. I know for a fact it doesn’t last. Heartache and pain? They last. They’re the only things that endure.”
Long minutes passed before his muscles came back to life, but when they did, he lifted his head, looked up at her dark, mesmerizing eyes, at her face flushed from her orgasm, at her skin slick with sweat. And knew from the bottom of his heart that even if she wasn’t his soul mate, she was worth living for. She was everything he was fighting for. He brushed a lock of hair away from her face then skimmed his thumb over her cheek.
“I don’t deserve you.”
“But I want you,” he said before she could protest.
“I’ll always want you. You are the heart that beats inside my chest. That gives me life.”
His throat grew thick. “I love you too, Maelea. Without you, I am nothing.”
Tears filled her eyes, and she kissed him. His lips, his nose, his cheeks.
“Show me,” she whispered…
