Synopsis: BLACK SOUL, SUFFOCATING IN SILENCE
Severus: demon, incubus, escort–leech. After centuries of scorn from his own kind in the underworld, Severus went topside and settled amongst the secret demon community in Farrow’s Hollow. Located near a hell-gate, the city allows him to exist on Earth without sacrificing much of his demon abilities, but as with all incubi, he must take the life essence of humans to maintain his strength.
Working as an escort, he has been able to keep himself satiated, juggling enough clients to ensure that he doesn’t repeat the mistakes of past incubi–the murderers, the gluttons, the true demonic leeches.
In his line of work, Severus sees much of the same every night: human women searching for surrender, for a connection, for love. He caters to them, steals from them, not realizing that he’s desperate for all the same things.
BLUE EYES, WATCHING HER WORLD FADE AWAY
Moira Aurelia: grad student, TV-marathoner, bar trivia champion–unable to look in a mirror. Not anymore. Because when she does, she no longer sees herself. The person, the creature, staring back isn’t her. It can’t be.
The physical changes started after her mom died a year ago. Hair, skin, eyes. Nothing is the same as it once was, and no one can tell her why. Doctors refer her to specialists. Specialists shrug their shoulders. And Moira assumes she’s dying from the same mysterious illness that plagued her mom.
But if she’s dying, why is she getting stronger? Her body is changing, but into what? Something… supernatural. Inhuman. Other. Frightening new realities flash across her mind, but she can’t accept them. She must be dying–because the alternative is crazy.
Fearing the end is near, and refusing to accept other possibilities, Moira goes after the one thing she can control: her sex life. Twenty-three and still unable to experience a satisfying climax, she schedules a session with a Rus Tanner, esteemed male escort, and hopes for something to go right for once.
LIGHT AND DARK COLLIDE–DESPERATE TO CONNECT
But the night takes a turn from the moment they meet. Severus, expecting just another dull session with a new client, is thrown by the otherworldly creature seeking his services–this strange, beautiful woman who arouses his long dormant demon side like none other. Moira, meanwhile, finds herself face-to-face with a man who can handle her newfound strength–and wears a dark stare and sinful smile like a second skin.
Two lonely creatures grapple with the undeniable pull between them.
Moira flees. Severus pursues.
Desperate for answers, the demon seeks her out–unaware that he isn’t the only predator to have caught her scent.
Opinion: WOW! When I say this series completely captivated me, I mean it. I recommended it to a group of friends immediately after finishing Predator and we all gobbled it up.
Severus has dark secrets, but unbeknownst to Moria, so does she.
This first novella in The Hunt series follows the meeting of Severus and Moria, and continues as the two begin to delve deeper into Moria’s family history.
Predator is a seductive roller coaster, mixed with mystery and a cliffhanger ending that will leave you on your toes.
