Here it is, the cover to my January 14th release from Crimson Romance.
When a normally quiet and polite Vampire Slayer is tasked to help an arrogant and selfish demon, only trouble can ensue.
“A woman shouldn’t walk behind a man, Elise. Women aren’t second class beings.”
Ignoring the warning on her face, he stepped forward until they were toe to toe, forcing her to look up. He ran his finger across the soft skin of her neck from one ear to the other and reveled in the defiance in her eyes.
“And I’m not stupid enough to turn my back to you only to have you stab me from behind,” he said.
She gritted her teeth but didn’t step back. Again, she was brave. Men — human and Others — usually backed off when they honed in on the danger in his tone.
“I fight fair, X.”
Catching him by surprise, she barged past and stormed toward the cabin, taking the lead. Clenching his jaw, Xavier rushed over to catch up to her, following silently at her side. Either she trusted that he’d fight fair too, or she was too trusting. Neither thought sat well with him.
Fairness and trust could get her killed. One second. That’s how quickly he could end her life when her back was to him.
Lives and friendships are at stake while love and loyalty is put to the test. Will Elise and Xavier come out unscathed and together? Or will a secret from Elise’s past tear them apart?
