She walks in on me fucking another woman for sport.
Her blue eyes burn like twin suns at daybreak when they train on me.
One sniff in her direction, and I know she’s mine.
Ice to my pyre.
Scenting its fated mate, my wolf beast awakens for the first time and roars with hellfire.
Heat sears through my veins. I’ve never been so aroused by any other female.
But Tessa Morrigan can’t be my queen.
She came too late.
I’ve started the Underworld Bride Trials. All the contestants must fight to the death until the last one stands by my side to claim the crown.
Loki, the hot new boss of Hell, is hosting a bachelorette contest. He thinks it’s funny to have a troop of women fighting to the death over him.
But he doesn’t expect to attract the most lethal assassin and a rejected queen to his selection game. I didn’t come to ride the playboy king’s sexy body or be Queen of the Underworld. I promised Lucifer his son’s head on a gold platter.
I’ve been burned before and vowed never to let a handsome, powerful man touch me again. Yet when Loki and I lay eyes upon each other, sizzling chemistry scorches us. Under his ruthless bad boy exterior hides another man, one that ignites flames inside my icy heart.
“Care to join us, little bunny?” he offered with an enticing smile. “I won’t bite.”
“You expect me to believe that? With that big bad wolf smirk?” I said. “You must think you’re cute when you hide your fangs.”
“I was trying to help.” He grinned wider. “I’m a friendly guy. And I know you’re very much aroused. I know your type.”
“You know shit. That’s what you know and what you’ll get,” I sneered, my voice husky. “And you have no shame.”
He threw his head back and let out a snarky laugh. “What a mouth you have. I wonder what else it can do.”
He had the nerve to dip his eyes toward my lips.
“I can give you a list if you ask nicely next time,” I said sweetly. “This mouth can do wonders, but it’s also full of tiny fangs. I hope they catch your fancy.”
“My kind of fancy girl,” he purred again, then curiosity sparked in his heated eyes. “Why aren’t you afraid of me like the others?”
Afraid of him? I was a great assassin from another world and another time. I came to take his head! Lucifer had specific requirements.
I couldn’t help but giggle.
“Who are you?” he asked after a quiet moment. He must have sensed the surge of menace from me, though he didn’t appear alarmed.
The cocky bastard.
“Your worst nightmare, Demon King,” I said, heat and ice and hate swirling in my eyes all at once.
