Danae “Dani” Espinoza is on the run and desperate to escape the demons of her past. Plans to hide out in a sleepy Los Angeles suburb turn into a pipe dream as she is drawn into the secret filled world of the local motorcycle club. Dani soon learns that her secrets and lies are nothing compared to those kept behind the clubhouse doors. Trying to avoid the suspicious Vice President, she must keep a low profile in order to survive. The trouble is he has other ideas.
Can an angel with blood-covered wings and the devil himself resist temptation or will they risk bringing hellfire down on everything that they love?
I didn't know how I was going to end up liking this story as the start of it was slow and seemed to take a bit for Hero and Dani to actually get together. The author has done a great job with keeping the reader on the edge of finding out Dani'sf secret that was one hell of a shocker. Lots of details in the story which of course is amazing, couldn't see the story any other way without them, they really had the story shine and make since. Once you really get into the story you can't get out of it at all. My first time reading from this author and I know it wont be my last that's for sure. With shocking twist and turns that come up at every stop and the wicked way the characters are attracted to each other just blows my mind. Hott Alpha alert!!! The men in this story not just the main man Hero are drop dead sexy and ozze hottness. Dani, running from her past to hopefully something better tables get turned and nothing is as it seems for her. Falling in love and being safe is all she wanted but of course that has come with a price. Hero and Dani are a very powerful couple with love, hate, lies, truths and death all apart of this crazy journey they take with each other. 2 person POV story is a MUST READ over and over again. This story is so worth the read from cover to cover, every word on every page makes the story shine, I know at first I didn't know about the story but once I finished it my mind changed and now I so can't wait for more it's like a deep seated craving that I need more Hero and Dani.
Cold. All I can feel is a deep chill blanketing my body. My eyes open to complete darkness as a voice calls to me. Its muffled tones send shivers down my spine with every garbled word. A sense of familiarity floats around me as its words become clearer.
“Run, Dani,” it pleas from beyond the black veil shrouding the room. “Escape while you can,” it continues. Panic courses through my veins. Where in the hell am I? Why can’t I see anything? The pleas go unanswered as my voice fails to render sound.
“Help!” I scream internally, “Please, fucking help me!”
The voice’s call fades with each word. “You need to get the hell out of here, Dani. You need to move. Find a wall and escape,” I coach to myself. A cold chill of air sweeps into the darkness encompassing me as I try to feel the place around me. My fingers plunge into a dense, sticky liquid as I crawl forward causing my body to slide with each movement. A hard surface is finally inching its way under my fingers.
Crawling upwards, I splay my hands against the cool wall. “You’re on your feet, Dani. The hardest part is over now. Time to find a door or a light switch, something to get us out of here,” my internal coach continues.
Keeping close to the wall, I finally find a switch. Flicking it upwards, the light shines brilliantly. As my eyes adjust to the light, my hands come into my vision. A scream barrels out of my throat when I see the sticky, red blood covering my hands and clothes. My heart races as I frantically wipe the blood away. Blood begins to pool at my feet, inching toward me. Rushing away from the blood, I fall backward into a solid, but warm obstacle. Before I can turn around, hands grasp my arms as a person’s hot breath trails down my neck.
“Hello, Dani,” a different voice whispers in my ear. “Welcome to Hell. You’re mine now,” the voice crackles as my body is pulled into black oblivion.
