Blurb:

Playing devil’s advocate with three demons? There’s no way I am ever going to win. 

Things were finally going right for us. We got the relics back. We defeated the dragon. I thought we’d won. But we’ve ended up losing so much more… 

Cain’s severely wounded, and I don’t know how to save him. Losing him shouldn’t bother me, but it does. A lot. 

Elias and Dorian have a plan: seek out help from people who wield the darkest and cruelest of magic. We soon find that the only one with enough power to bring the Prince of Hell back from death is a master of death itself. But nothing can be done for free and the price has us traveling across the world and facing a slew of new dangers, ones none of us are prepared for. 

Even with everything shot to hell, the demons remain a constant temptation I don’t need. Being with them only seems to fan the flames, but letting me go depends on finding all of Hell’s relics. 

And if I’m being honest, I’m not sure what I’ll do once my soul is freed.

Chapter One

Aria

Seconds feel like hours. My chest is wound so tight, every breath in is needle sharp and painful but I can’t move. Can’t even think straight as I stare at Cain’s slumped body and his blood darkening the ground around him.

Before I could fully process what was happening, Dorian’s arms wrap around me and he’s lifting me off the ground. We’re running through the shipment yard so fast, the frigid cold air bites at my face and ears. Fear crawls through my chest as the distance between us and Cain grows. There’s no way we could just leave him.

“Elias has him,” Dorian says as if reading my thoughts, and at that second, Elias appears around a metal container, racing after us with Cain in his arms.

When we make it to the Town Car, Dorian opens the back door and then the front. “You’re going to have to sit on my lap for this drive, little girl.”

I’m still having a hard time finding my voice, so I only nod. He slides into the front seat near the driver and pulls me in close. Right then, Elias appears and lays Cain into the back seat, only to climb inside after him.

The door isn’t even closed when Dorian barks at the driver, “Step on it, Holmes.” And as if the older man’s dealt with situations like this before, he punches the gas pedal and we speed away.

Peeking over Dorian’s shoulder and into the back seat, I gasp in horror. Cain’s wounds look even worse this close. His skin is ghostly pale from the bloodloss, almost translucent, and his eyes are closed. I stare at his chest for any movement to hint that he could be alive but see none.

“Is-Is he breathing?” I ask, my voice coming out in a fearful squeak.

Dorian guides my face to look at him instead. “He’s going to be okay.”

But even I can hear the slight waver to his words. He isn’t so sure either.

Elias and Dorian exchange weighted looks, and my stomach sinks. Losing Cain just isn’t an option. It isn’t.

With his hands firmly on my hips, Dorian twists me to face forward again. “We are almost home,” he says to me as if all we need is to step one foot in the mansion and Cain would be right-as-rain again. As if it’s that simple.

“It’s coming… It’s coming…” a soft voice sings.

I glance down at the box in my hands, almost forgetting I was even holding it still. It vibrates in my grasp, and the relics’ eerie and muted song wafts through its seal and lock.

Since no one else has reacted to the sad drum beat or creepy lyrics, it seems only I can hear the strange music, like before. I lean in closer.

“It’s coming… Coming… Coming…”

Coming? What’s coming? I don’t understand.

As if understanding my thoughts, the relics continue their singing. “Death… Death… Death…”

Icy cold dread snakes up my spine.

Are they talking about Cain?

When former Navy SEAL Jeff Crockett witnesses an attempted kidnapping of a young girl, he makes a conscious choice to save her. But what he doesn’t realize is how that singular decision will change his life forever. It is the catalyst for a new career and the event that opens the door to love.

What happens to former Navy SEALS when we enter civilian life?

Stop giving a damn about the mission we’ve been trained for?
Stop caring about our fellow Americans who are unable to defend themselves?

When I came face to face with human trafficking, I was forced to answer those questions.
My answer is and always will be “HOOYAH!”
I refuse to fail in the fight for freedom, and I am not alone.

I am Jeff Crockett, founder and CEO of Cock Blockers, Inc.

We target for rescue and recovery victims of human trafficking smuggled over the porous southern border.

Our motto: Freedom is the only option.

Melody needs to keep Dean and The Apex free from her aunt’s machinations, but she simply must escape Coven Bestia. Her aunt is angered by Dean’s continuing absence and wants Melody to return to the compound as soon as possible.

While she might be safer at Adolphus Academy, not everyone is happy to have her there – especially when she’s bonded to a much-desired member of The Apex.

Now Melody must juggle the needs of her new familiar, along with the urgings of six more shifters who wish to bond to her, all while dodging the catty and immature classmates and whatever her aunt is planning.

Then there is the new wolf who’s determined to have her at any cost. Yet another shifter she has to deny – without actually denying him. Her aunt’s punishments for disobedience are getting worse and there’s a good chance that she won’t survive the next one.

Two dragons, three wolves and a very sweet fox are all focussed on becoming her familiars, but Melody is struggling to adjust to her bond with Dean. She’s never been allowed to keep a familiar before.

Their beasts are urging them to claim her, to bond her, to possess her. How long can she resist these men? Freeing them from the academy means enslaving them to her aunt. There are simply no good choices and no easy solution.

All Melody wants is a chance to breathe and be “normal”. Is it too much to ask for?

**Warning, this is a dark reverse harem story with elements that may cause some readers distress, including but not limited to descriptions of physical abuse, neglect and battle. Please consider carefully before purchasing.**

Trent leaned forward and looked at her closely. “You have a bit of egg near your mouth, may I?” he asked her, and she nodded. However, he was as sly as his beast. Rather than brushing it away with his thumb, or wiping it with a cloth, he leaned in and licked it from the corner of her mouth, before running his tongue lightly across her lips.

****

“Mm, delicious,” was all he had time to say before her bonded shifters lifted him bodily away

****

Inside, his beast roared. Already they knew the answer. Yes; yes, it had happened more times than anyone could ever imagine and she blamed herself. He could see it. She was helpless, as much a victim of the abuse as the shifters were, but she saw herself as the cause.

****

She wasn’t, Melody was merely the tool, but he knew that the differentiation would offer her no comfort.

****

His witch was suffering, soul-crushing wounds, and there was nothing he could do to ease pain. How could he, when she was inflicting most of it herself?

His lion surged forward. He wanted to tear out the throat of whoever had marked her. The only marks she should bear were the ones left by his teeth as he claimed her for his mate.

It was what his lion was chanting, however, that held his attention in a way that nothing else could.

****

Mate. Mate. Mate. Mate.

****

The beast was relentless and resolute. Melody was his, and Dean needed to claim her.

Dean sat there, shocked, thrilled, horrified. She was his mate. He’d found her. All this time, and he’d finally found her. And she was his witch! His witch. The woman who had conquered his beast, and then stolen their hearts. But she was in so much pain, so much fear, so much danger. He needed to protect her. He needed to pull her into his arms and hold her there, never letting her go.

****

Whatever Melody needed, he would provide it, or die trying. His witch needed him, and he would answer her call.

****

“Oh my!” Mrs Hardinger was taken aback. “And you’ve got seven of them panting after you. Well, my dear, you’re certainly in for a treat. I can’t speak for Asher or Trent, but I can tell you that the original Apex boys have fucked their way around this academy once or twice. They’re going to make you see stars!” She threw back her head and laughed.

****

“Tell me, sweetheart; have you ever done this to yourself? Ever brought yourself to completion?” he asked, licking the shell of her ear.

****

“You’re so beautiful like this, Melody. Relaxed, free, radiant. If I had my way, you would spend all your days this happy. The way you look now, I know every one of them would want to see it.”

****

“We’re shifters, Melody. The walls and doors are not enough to guarantee your privacy here, pretty one. Even without that, there’s the bond. Believe me, they both know what we’re doing.”

****

This was her wild, wanton and unrepentant, and he had brought her to this point.

****

Together they moaned and writhed and touched, but he took it no further than that. Right then, he just wanted to introduce her to pleasure. Something that she’d had far too little experience with, sexual or not. Melody’s life had been stark and full of pain, and Trent wanted to address the imbalance.

NOW LIVE!

She narrowed her eyes, the regret I’d seen in her gaze turning to contempt. “Fuck. You.”

I shouldn’t have enjoyed the pain flickering in her eyes, but dammit, she’d hit a part of me that only knew how to push back. “That’s the second time you’ve said it. Is that what you want then, for me to fuck you?”

Her hand met the side of my face so fast, I felt the sting and heard the sharp sound before I realized what happened. Startled, I stared at her, and the blue in her eyes changed to red, fangs pushing past her lips.

I deserved that slap and more for being such a prick. But shit, there was something maddeningly sexy about seeing her so full of rage and transformed. As I gazed into the glow of her eyes, I felt a stream of hot liquid trickle down my chin. Reaching up to touch my face, I smelled the blood before feeling its warmth coat my fingers. I rotated my jaw to ease the throbbing pain of her blow. She’d not only clocked me good, she’d cut me. From the amount of blood, the gash had been deep.

She’d wanted to piss me off, but her anger and defiance only made me burn hotter for her. Using my thumb, I smeared the blood across her lips, mocking her attempts to rile me, but also needing to quell my need to touch her. “How’s that taste, Beastie?”

Her eyes became glossy as she licked the blood off her lips, the sight of her tongue brushing across her plump mouth making my body stiffen and sending an electric current straight to my cock.

“Do it,” she said, leaning in, her voice breathy. “Fuck me. Or are you only about empty threats?”

I loved the mischief in her eyes and the challenge in her words. She could try to deny it if she wanted, but I felt it. How badly she wanted me to kiss her. How needy she was for my blood. The smart thing would’ve been to end this dangerous game. There was no point in playing if I didn’t intend to finish.

But I was too weak against the lure of her shiny gaze and the warm scent of her skin. Drawing in close, I caged her in my arms as I placed my palms against the tree trunk, taking in that sweetness that perfumed her entire body. Bending my head down, I feathered my lips against the soft flesh of her neck, and whispered, “Oh, Beastie. I’ll only give you what you want if you beg for it.”
