About the Author
There is no such thing as a chance meeting.
There’s no room in Avery Nicolis’s life for an
obsession, yet why else does he stalk Emeline Gamble. Lurking in the shadows,
he hungers for a woman he can’t have. Between the secrets he guards and anarchy
roiling in his soul, his only solace are his glimpses of Emeline. He will
resist her, protect her from himself, and deny his desire to claim her heart.
Emeline Gamble was a Watcher for the Order—a secret
society of women charged with monitoring the offspring of the gods. For months,
she observed Avery Nicolis, an elite
mercenary, Descendant of Ra, and enemy of the Order. Never knowing he had her
in his crosshairs.
Trapped in a lie, Emeline is forced to accept Avery as
her bodyguard. Compelled to spend time with him, she learns to care for his
tortured soul and see the hero lurking beneath the assassin’s façade. But every
word out of her mouth is a lie. Every action a betrayal. Because to save her
family she is forced to accept a new assignment, deliver Avery Nicolis to the
Goddess of Chaos, alive...
And do not fall in love with him.
