(Rulers of Darkness #5)
~His fingers curled into tight fists. The leather split, revealing his white knuckles. Cold, hard fury rolled off him in icy waves, chilling the air. His demon roared and savagely demanded he devour the souls of those who’d harmed his woman.
Gabriel closed his eyes, his jaw clenched and his nostrils flared, drawing in deep breaths, but there was no calming the beast. Every muscle in his body pulled taught as he struggled to maintain control. His fangs violently punched from his gums, slicing his tongue and lower lip. The coppery tang of blood antagonizing the demon even more.
His eyes snapped open. Deep black, whirling pools of violence and hate. His mortal. They’d dared to do such vile things to his female.
Raising a shaking hand to his chest, Gabriel withdrew Jordan’s photo. Using his teeth, he removed one ruined glove. The leather hit the floor, discarded without a thought as he brushed the pad of his thumb over the glossy image.
Jordan’s penetrating violet eyes sliced through him, cutting so deeply her gaze singed his already darkened soul. Her pouty lips…her long, silken hair...her smooth as cream skin…She was a vision: innocent, honest, sweet and seductive—a true goddess. It was a miracle she’d survived her captivity, she was safe now. She was with him. He’d avenge her and he’d find a way to heal her.~
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?
