Love didn’t have a place in Merrick Ashford’s life. The former Navy SEAL’s entire focus was on his job with Ruthless Corp. Relationships were the last thing on his mind while working on a hit…until Audrey Cantrell spotted him in the middle of an assignment. Merrick didn’t have any other choice. He had to kidnap the beautiful college student to protect his identity. Or at least that was what he told himself. The hitman had already fallen hard and fast for Audrey, and he was going to keep her close until she returned his love.
Never catch the eye of a High Fae Lord. And if you do. . .don’t run. That will only excite the beast. Hasannah: All I want is to be prima of the High Lord’s ballet company. With a secret edge over the competition, I’ll get it—as long as nothing destroys my focus, and I don’t attract the wrong attention. On this side of the realm gate, the rules are different and no one will save you. The wrong attention shows up at the worst moment, and High Lord Andreien snatches me off the street, whispering filthy promises I’m not stupid enough to believe. . .but my will is no match for a powerful Fae. I don’t know if he’s the catalyst to launch me into the glittering dance career I crave, or the monster who will drain my soul. I don’t know if I’m the monster. I don’t know if I have the strength to care. Andreien: Her dark eyes lure me in and activate my bloodline’s curse the moment I see her. Guileless but cynical, sweet but sneaky. My fated match in a mortal, and she’s set me aflame. The skittish Muse requires gentle wooing, and for now I can hide my hunger. As long as she is obedient. As long as she doesn’t challenge that she is mine. But I should have known I wasn’t the only one who saw her, and wanted. I should have known keeping her alive, and at my side, would become a game of life and death.
Vampires don’t get a happily ever after. Over the centuries, Eric Collins learned that the hard way, which is why he has sworn off the idea of companionship and throws himself into his job as a detective. But his plan for a peaceful, solitary existence is disrupted the night he saves Chase Turner, a fellow cop, from being murdered. Aside from the once-dormant feelings Chase stirs up, Eric has a bigger problem. There’s another vampire in Chase’s life whose intentions are even less noble than his own. If Eric leaves Chicago, Chase is as good as dead. But if he stays, he’ll end up in a war with the rest of the city’s vampires and Chase might become a casualty after all. Falling in love with his partner was never part of Chase Turner’s career goals. He already has two strikes against him at Chicago PD — the last thing he needs is a third. The son of an infamous Internal Affairs commander and the survivor of a shootout that left his partner dead, Chase is trying his best to keep a low profile until the heat blows over. Then he’s reassigned to Eric Collins’ division, the detective who saved him from certain death. Despite the fact Chase’s life is a complete mess, Eric is the only one who seems to think there’s light at the end of the tunnel. And no matter how much Chase denies it to himself or his therapist, it soon becomes clear that Eric is going to be Strike Number Three. How much is too much to risk for happily ever after?
