One touch will prove fatal.
Caleb is dark, hot, and commanding in human form. As a dragon, he’s a force to be reckoned with. When he witnesses the slave Lileta being beaten by his Overlord Odage, he nearly comes unglued. Without understanding why, he asks to take Lileta as his own, but soon realizes his longing is more than an attraction to a beautiful woman. In a sick twist of fate, the gods have given him a demon as his mate—one he can never touch unless he wishes his own death.
His only choice is to grant her freedom.
Abducted as a teen, and later purchased by a dragon Overlord, Lileta’s venomous touch remains her only safeguard as a slave. When the demon’s rebellious nature brings about a brutal punishment, Caleb steps in and takes her as his own. As if having the sexy dragon save the day isn’t bad enough, she soon realizes they are destined to be together.
Mating is out of the question.
The abduction of a goddess intertwines their paths once again, spiraling them to the brink of passion. Unable to resist their fatal desire, the two must trust fate and hope they don’t destroy each other.
This book formerly published as Fatal Desire. Revised 2nd edition.
I purchased this book.
From the second I started this book I KNEW I was not going to be able to put it down. OMG the angst and stress of these two. I mean to be destined to someone who you can’t really have…..ANGST soooo hardcore!!
I loved and pitied Lileta in the last book. I wanted her to be reunited with her brother, Baal, after her freeing Marcus. She risked so much for the Guardian’s with no real hope of surviving. When I saw she was going to be mated with Caleb in this book I was excited because Caleb seemed like such a great character who was just following his friend …unfortunately his friend was not such a great guy to follow.
Caleb and Lileta are both drawn to each other but know there is no way the can consummate their relationship because of the kind of demon she is. But we all wonder WHY the Gods would be so cruel. As the story starts to unfold and we see the God’s explaining WHY this mating must happen …it was such a great read. The banter between the two characters was hilarious especially when they are pushing each other away. However, Caleb asking the Guardian’s for womanly advise was the best especially when Cassie stepped in to help. The history and backstory between the 2 characters and their families was amazing. At one point when one of their family lineages is told I was floored!!!
This book has soooo many twists and turns plus the set up for book 3 is started and I CAN NOT WAIT to dive in.
