For weeks, the immortal warrior Aeron has sensed an invisible female presence. An angel-demon-assassin has been sent to kill him. Or has she?
Olivia claims she fell from the heavens, giving up immortality because she couldn’t bear to harm him. But trusting – and falling for – Olivia will endanger them all. So how has this mortal with the huge blue eyes already unleashed Aeron’s darkest passion?
With an enemy hot on his trail and his faithful demon companion determined to remove Olivia from his life, Aeron is trapped between duty and consuming desire. Worse still, a new executioner has been sent to do the job Olivia wouldn’t…
“Because you aren’t who you think you are. You aren’t what everyone else believes. You might have delivered countless deaths but you love more fiercely than anyone I’ve ever known.”
He gulped. “No, we aren’t done chatting. Why aren’t you afraid of dying?”
“Everything and everyone has an end,” she said. “I mean, you’re going to be killed soon and though I loathe the thought, you don’t see me crying about that, either. I know what will happen, and I accept what cannot be changed. I’m trying to live while I can. While WE can. Dwelling on the bad is what destroys all hints of joy.”
“When you lost something precious, the memories of it became a tormenting reminder of what you could never have again.”
“Forceful little thing, aren’t you?”
“You have no idea. So we doing this or not?”
Those lush lips twitched. “Let me get this straight. We’re going to the bathroom, and I’m going to fuck you, and you don’t even care to know my name?”
“I’d actually prefer it if you’d keep your stupid mouth closed.” Oops. Her hatred was slipping out.
“Well, well. You might just be my soul mate.”
