Wicked Passion (Under Realm Assassins #3)
~“Vampire,” she sighed, the word a plea, a question, a prayer, a curse, she didn’t know. It didn’t matter.
He drew his fingers down the side of her neck then back up to trace the curve of her ear. His caress feather soft she wondered if he touched her at all.
Katya leaned into him, seeking the contact. Her breath caught when his large hand settled on her nape. He held her captive with his gaze and grip. Silently stating his dominance and daring her to test him.
Good Lady, he could read her so easily. Yes, she hungered. Her magic was weak, her power low, her body craved, her heart and soul ached from neglect and yearning. She wanted nothing more than to be with him, to take what he offered, but instinctively she knew she’d want more. His energy and strength were limitless, so easily addictive.
This wouldn’t just be a kiss. He wouldn’t allow it and neither would she. This would go far beyond what they’d shared earlier. Was she ready for more? Could she control her magic? Would she be able to resist the darkness within her?~
James Stonewoll is an Elite Assassin for the Under Realm Syndicate—an expert hunter and merciless killer. As a former pirate, he thrives on danger, the more perilous the mission, the better and he can't resist his newest contract: eliminate a rebel shape-shifting magic thief that stalks the border of the Under Realm kidnapping and murdering innocent Others. But never did the centuries old vampire anticipate playing hero to a mythical temptress with luscious curves, tantalizing lips, and hypnotic eyes.Captured and held prisoner, Katya Moro was trapped in a seemingly endless loop of unimaginable agony as her magic was slowly being torn from her soul. A gasp away from death, she is rescued by a sinful kiss and awakens in the strong arms of a powerful warrior whose roguish smile, sharp fangs, and intense strength unlock dormant instincts within her, an all-consuming madness that demands complete surrender.
Gazing down at her, James knew he had to kill her. Dark Magic Wielders, like the beautiful female he’d found, were a grave threat to human society and were not permitted to roam the mortal world. But Katya’s smoky voice and sweet kisses stir a fierce hunger inside him. She is unpredictable, uncontrollable and wickedly seductive—his perfect kind of dangerous. To keep her safe, James will protect her from the magic thieves that hunt her and his fellow assassins until he can find a way to return Katya to her home in the Under Realm.
Can Katya’s passion conquer the darkness within his soul?
