And submit.
Book Two of The Debt Duet.

 

 
Hours pass before the door to my room opens again. I’m exhausted from the sheer number of orgasms I’ve had on this device that’s firmly clenched between my legs. I tried to move so many times, but the chain wouldn’t allow it. And the longer I stayed in position, the weaker I became.

My legs have turned into a puddle beneath me. I’m shaking from the intense sexual lust flowing through every fiber of my being and the sheer need consuming me whole.

Easton walks into my room, closing the door behind him, and I can barely lift my head to look at him. I’m tired … and so fucking aroused I can’t think straight. I want this to end. I want to explode into bliss.

Easton stands in the middle of the room, towering over me. He stares at my naked body, his eyes following every bead of sweat that rolls down my forehead. The moment seems to last an eternity.

My lips part, and my tongue moves without regret.

“Please,” I murmur.

The left side of his lips inches up as he lowers his head. Almost as if he’s waiting for me to continue.

So I do. “Fuck me.”

The words that slip from my mouth release the load off my shoulders. I’ve been carrying this guilt and shame for far too long. It’s done now. My resolve is gone.

I want this more than anything.

My body quakes with yearning. It wishes there was more than this device thrumming against my clit. My body already knew long ago what my mind refused to believe. My soul wants this man. It’s tethered to him by something more than a debt. My body sings to his tune, and he knows this well.

It’s showing on his face in his wicked smile and the triumphant glimmer in his eyes.

He’s won.

I lower my head in defeat as he approaches. There’s no point in fighting him. He’s already claimed my body, so why would I hold onto that last sliver of me? Besides, I don’t even want to anymore. There’s nothing I crave more than to have him deep inside me, to come one last time, and then fall into an eternal sleep.

Suddenly, the buzzing between my legs stops. Sensations no longer bombard my clit, but it continues to throb with pleasure. It’s a strange feeling … as though someone has ripped away the very thread that kept me together.

When Easton’s hand touches my shoulder, I brace for what’s to come. Will he shove me against the bed and fuck me on the floor from behind? Will he pull me up by my chain and fuck me on the bed in traditional style? Or will he shove me against the door and make me look at him while he takes my pussy?

His hand slides upward along my neck, and he cups my chin and lifts my head. He slithers down to grasp the chain.

Click.
The chain falls to the floor, and I’m no longer confined to the bed.

Just like that … I’m free.

The blood of my friend is on Aon’s hands, a King who would do anything to protect me. He believes his actions are justified because of a prophecy by the Ancients predicting my undoing by the hands of a friend. 
 
I refuse to accept it. Nothing can justify what Aon did, what he took from me. 
 
But as one threat is buried, another arises. The other Kings and Queens of Under are waking up from their crypts, and a war among us is imminent. The need for revenge and power is driving immortals to the brink of madness.
 
While the other Kings and Queens of Under are blinded by their own selfish conquests, something big and more dangerous than anything we’ve ever faced is about to shake Under to its core. 
 
There’s one King who seems to hold the key to it all, the answers to our fate. A white-winged angel, a legion whose mind is made of a thousand souls with magic strong enough to hold the Ancients captive at the bottom of the pool. 
 
The King of Blood.
 
I just need to determine whether he’s an ally…or the worst enemy Under has ever seen.

Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: June 11, 2019
 
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. – John 16:13
Yet my God is more silent than ever before.
Even worse, I’m trapped in this spiral, more focused on a singular addiction.
It isn’t the alcohol this time.
The killer’s turning more brazen. With each roadblock we throw up in front of her, she finds a new way around it.
Murdering at a quicker speed.
Taunting me at every turn.
But it’s Kiera that dominates. Kiera that rules. The mystery of her becomes even more important than all the lives being lost in Boston.
There’s an illness in her family. One as pervasive as what’s infected our streets. I don’t know what it is yet, but my soul is determined to find out.
Maybe my God isn’t silent. Maybe he is speaking.
The voice telling me I need to save her is the strongest of all.
The most consuming.
There’s a circle of lies—my own and that of others—closing in from every side.
Little do I realize, everything is about to crash down around me, putting every one I love at risk.
