Keeper of the demon of Secrets, Amun can manipulate the darkest thoughts of anyone nearby. But when the immortal warrior is chained and isolated to protect those he loves, death is his only hope of release – until he meets Haidee, a fellow prisoner whose beauty and hidden vulnerability draw him into a reckless test of his loyalty.
Haidee is a demon-assassin, raised to despise Amun’s kind. Yet how can she hate the man whose touch sets her aflame? But to save him, she must give herself body and soul… and face the wrath of a powerful adversary sworn to destroy her.
For a moment, Strider almost forgot how pissed he was with Amun and Haidee as he savored the fact that he’d just cock-blocked the keeper of Death. Almost.
William untucked the covers and stood, making a mental list of everything he’d need for the coming trip. A few blades, serrated and non serrated. A vial of acid. A bone saw. A spiked paddle. A cat-o’-nine-tails. And a bag of Gummy Bears.
He gave her what no one else had ever been able to give. A past to cherish. A present to enjoy. A future to anticipate.
“How can you love me?” she asked between hiccups. “How can you love me?”
“I just do. You’re a part of me.”
