Technical genius and demi-goddess—a.k.a Divinity—Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone but her twin. After her parents were killed by the demons over two years ago, she graciously accepts her role in the war between the demons and witches. But when a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian and steps in with help she never asked for, she is torn between her desire for the dark predator and memories of the painful loss she endured at the hands of her enemies and from those who claimed to love her in the past.
One of the last Death Demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess of Witchcraft, Hecate. Charged with guardianship of the Divinities—one particular spitfire, in particular—he was told never to approach them, but simply to aid from a distance. But when Khloe sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and thus becomes the demons’ prey, Jagger has no choice but to reveal himself to her. However, he is taken by surprise when the desire to claim her as his own emerges, and his need for her burns hotter than her Fire. But in the midst of the war, their feelings for each other could prove more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.
Let’s recap a bit, we have two missing Divinities, The younger divinities have bonded and they have the Sinew and it’s protector the One of Hecate’s HellHounds Teddy-Bear<giggle>. Things have been quiet but the Divinities know something is going to happen. They know Kahn and his son Demetrious are not going to stop until they get what they’re after, the Sinew. There’s also Samoan, Demetrious’ daughter, she really hates Kalissa and Khloe and loves trying to best them. She has now targeted Khloe and the things she does have very interesting results.
Khloe has a shadow, she verified this while shopping with her sister Kalissa and the very pregnant Lydia. Now as they are leaving the mall she senses something much darker than the shadow she’s discovered and sends Kalissa and Lydia home while she stays to fight.
The fight turns out to involve a lot more demons and more powerful ones than Khloe expects and even with the help of her guardian she ends up cuffed to suppress her magic and seriously injured.
Jagger and his brother Jax are the last Death Demons and have sworn fidelity to Hecate. As such they have been appointed by her to protect the Divinities. When Khloe is almost captured and cuffed under his watch. Jagger is forced to reveal himself to her and the decision is made to keep the twins apart until they know why the Demons want them.
Then the Oceanway Coven is attacked and Dark Divine children are kidnapped. So much for keeping Kalissa and Khloe apart. This is a favorite scene.
Glancing to his temptress, he noticed Khloe dart off across the small community. A double take had him rushing after her. The twins were supposed to stay separate. What the hell was Kalissa doing here?
With quick strides, he made his way to the twins, who were locked in a tight hug. The rush of panic subsided as he observed the females. Frozen in place, he watched as magic swirled around them in iridescent waves.
“Ayden Daniels.” Kalissa’s mate stood in front of him with his hand extended.
Jagger gave a short nod and accepted the other male’s hand. “Jagger. I guess there’s no way to keep them apart.”
Ayden chuckled and sent his woman a hungry gaze before speaking. “No. They’re a package deal.”
What the hell was that supposed to mean? Khloe was his to claim. His body coiled with possessiveness, and he had to stop himself from carting her far away from everyone until she agreed to be his mate.
Ayden flicked his gaze back to Jagger, brow raised as if the man had read his mind. Then with a shake of his head and a smile lifting the corners of his mouth, he explained. “I meant that they can’t be separated. Lo is my sister now, and my bond with Kalissa ties us together, too. It was pretty weird at first.”
Ah, that made sense. Magical twins had an unbreakable link. They were a part of each other. Through Kalissa and Ayden’s mating bond, Khloe was also tied to the couple. And her future husband would complete a quad circle of power.
This newfound acknowledgement raised alarm in him. The trio was a powerful force, one the demons wanted. Were they trying to snag one to lure in the other two? Possible. He wanted to take Khloe’s arm and drag her back to her condo until he could figure out their next step.
