Book Description


Emily's sister disappeared without a trace. When authorities refused to search for her, Emily was forced to accept that she was on her own if she ever wanted to learn the truth. That's how she ended up stumbling into a den of werewolves under the full moon. But even in the darkness of this terrifying new world, hope can come in unexpected forms. For Emily, it came as the most feared among all immortals: the Executioner himself. Now, he's all that stands between her and being someone's next meal. But his protection has a price...

Sample Chapter

“After last night, the pack will be out searching for you. It isn’t safe,” he said.

His hand slowly moved from her wrist to her forearm in a gentle caress, and the atmosphere changed drastically.

His touch felt far too intimate, and her skin seemed overly sensitive where he touched.

“I’ve managed on my own a long time now, William,” she said, her voice a little thick.

She used his first name deliberately—like a school teacher might—to show she had the authority to do so, and was at least his equal.

His eyes took on a golden glint and a heat that made her pulse rate ratchet up another notch. With his free hand, he reached out and ran a single finger down her cheek in a featherlight touch.

“You’re so fragile and you don’t even know it,” he said silkily, his voice a low, throaty murmur.

She swallowed hard and tried not to lean into his touch like a cat. His words of the night before floated through her mind, and she felt the color rise in her cheeks.

He wanted her.

He’d told her so outright.

That made his touch now very dangerous, indeed. Her reaction to the contact seemed way out of proportion. It was nothing that should have caused sudden heat to build in her midsection and beyond. She needed to get control of herself before things got out of hand. With a small, forced laugh to dispel the moment, she shrugged nonchalantly.

“I’m not nearly as fragile as you seem to think,” she said.

To which he chuckled. It was a deep, rich sound. Then his gaze pointedly raked over her from head to toe appraisingly.

She refused to look away from his eyes. Instead, she raised a single brow mutinously, daring him to mention that her head barely reached his chest, or the gun in her waistband hung halfway down her thigh.

Instead of saying anything, he took a step toward her, crowding her away from the door and against the wall with his large frame, forcing her to step back.

Emily retreated a single involuntary step, but no more. She stood firm, determined to face him down. He might deliberately intimidate her—though she wasn’t really sure it was deliberate—but he wouldn’t hurt her.

She didn’t know what made her so certain of that.

After all, she’d seen him decapitate a man without a word only a few hours before. But somehow, she just knew she was safe with him. So, she stubbornly held her ground.

He had to stop eventually or walk over the top of her.

He didn’t stop advancing until his legs were against hers, and she became very aware of the sheer size of the man. With one hand, he cupped her chin and tipped her head up, then bent to brush her lips gently with his own. The pressure from his lips was barely there for an instant before he pulled away.

“I understand you want to leave the house. Give me a few minutes to get dressed and we can go wherever you want,” he whispered thickly, his mouth a mere inch from her own.

Emily watched him walk toward the stairs without saying a word, wondering that her knees still held her up. She was dumbfounded and rocked to the core of her being. As soon as she heard the door to his bedroom click shut, she turned and ran from the house for all she was worth.

Tally Adams

I live in Texas with my husband and four children. (And one big, fat English bulldog). I have been writing my entire life because the characters in my head just swirl around with different potentials if I don't put them on paper. By the time I entered high school, I'd already written my first book. Years later, I worked as a nurse and continued to write. Finally, I decided to move forward into the world of publication and share my imaginary friends with the world.
