Risa Faden is a witch whose ultra-powerful shield magic is slowly breaking her mind. But when her beloved goddaughter is snatched by a demon, she’ll risk anything to rescue the baby—including lying to the handsome, intriguing stranger who has the power to help her keep her sanity, save the child…and steal her heart.
Linc Dillinger is a Wing Slayer Hunter whose sexy, rich, bad-boy charm hides a treacherous betrayal that left him emotionally scarred. As a result he risks his life to protect innocents, but is incapable of love—until he meets a beautiful witch who can save his cursed soul. Risa’s fierce courage and loyalty reaches past his barriers and he begins to believe she has the magic to free his caged heart.
But Risa’s lie explodes into dark danger that forces Linc into a hellish high-stakes gamble: He must either win the witch he loves and her godchild…or endure a loss that will destroy them all.
#1: Short Excerpt of 205 words, not sexy:
Rising to his full height, he nodded. “Touching you will keep the bloodlust down. The problem will be when I let go of you. Then it’ll hit me with the force of a bullet train.”
His unflinching honesty helped her believe he was at least trying not to hurt her. “What do we do?”
Something almost desperate flickered in his gaze. “Don’t let go, don’t pull away. And if something does happen, don’t run. It triggers the predator in me when prey runs.”
He considered her prey? Had she lost her freaking mind here? Goose bumps broke out on her skin. Kendall. You’re doing this for Kendall, and for Blythe. You owe them both. “Tell you what, hunter. I’m not prey, and you don’t pull that predator shit on me, or I’ll find a gun and shoot your balls off. And believe me, I don’t miss.” Damn Archer for melting her gun. She’d feel better if she had it.
Linc raised both eyebrows, his lips twitching. “Tough girl, huh?”
“You know it. I’m a trained bodyguard. I protect women from men who don’t know the meaning of the word no.” Reminding herself of her skills and how hard she’d worked to get strong steadied her.
