Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday: Caressed by the Edge of Darkness 
Rulers of Darkness #5

~His cold gaze sharped, but his indifferent expression remained firmly in place as he replied with a bored drawl, “We’ve nothing more to discuss.”
“The hell you say!” she snapped and his crystal green eyes flickered with obsidian shadows.
He held his demon at bay, but she could tell underneath his controlled façade the beast lurked. She’d dared to challenge him and as she held his stare she saw the vampire within him, ready to attach, top rend flesh and muscle with took and claw.
Her instinct demanded she be cautious. He wouldn’t be easily dispatched like the lowly, loathsome outcastes she’d fought in the past. Gabriel was dangerous.
Focusing on her breathing, she forced herself to calm down, but she didn’t relax her guard.
“What are your plans for Klein?”
“As previously stated, questioning.”
“I’m sorry, vampire, but repeating answers isn’t allowed,” she said, mimicking a game show host’s chime. “Would you like to try again to earn points?”
“No.” Gabriel moved to step around her, but she slid to the side blocking his exit again. She knew he could escape her with little effort, but he remained.
“After you question him, what then?”
Anger flared in the depths of his gaze but was instantly extinguished. “He is a prisoner. You needn’t concern yourself with him.”
“He can’t be trusted. Ross is dangerous—”
“No.” Gabriel closed the space between them. Jordan craned her neck back to meet his gaze. His size was overwhelming, his stare intimidating and the heat of his solid body…Jordan clenched her fists even tighter, her nails biting into her palms. She refused to lean into him and she wouldn’t run her hands over his hard chest or tunnel her fingers through the hair at his nape. She didn’t want to rise on her tip toes and lay claim to his mouth.
Gabriel tilted his head down, his breath caressed the side of her face. “I am dangerous, sweetheart. You’d be wise to remember that.”~

Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.
Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and...complete surrender.
While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With every soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, testing his sanity and challenging his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?
