New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter returns with her most explosive Lords of the Underworld tale to date, about a fierce warrior on the brink of sanity who will stop at nothing to claim the exquisite human with the power to soothe the beast inside him…

Driven to his death by the demon of Distrust, Baden spent centuries in purgatory. Now he’s back, but at what cost? Bound to the king of the underworld, an even darker force, he’s unable to withstand the touch of another…and he’s quickly devolving into a heartless assassin with an uncontrollable temper. Things only get worse when a mission goes awry and he finds himself saddled with a bride—just not his own.

Famed dog trainer Katarina Joelle is forced to marry a monster to protect her loved ones. When she’s taken hostage by the ruthless, beautiful Baden immediately after the ceremony, she’s plunged into a war between two evils—with a protector more dangerous than the monsters he hunts. They are meant to be enemies, but neither can resist the passion burning between them…and all too soon the biggest threat is to her heart.

But as Baden slips deeper into the abyss, she’ll have to teach him to love…or lose him forever.

Katarina wasnt afraid of Baden. Not anymore. 

He took a step to the side, intending to move around her. Oh, no. She flattened her hands on his shoulders, keeping him in place. 

I want to know whats wrong with you. She said. Tell me.
He snapped his teeth at her in a show of dominance. You think you want to know my problem. Youre wrong.
Her tone dry, she said, Im so glad you know my mind better than I do.
Very well. I need sex. He threw the words at her as if they were weapons. Badly.
Whoa. Blindside! 

Heart pounding, she jerked her hands away from him. Sex...from me?
Yesss. A hiss. Only from you.
Only. Amazing how one little word could send pleasure soaring through her, warming her. You told me never to touch you. Which shed just done, she realized. My bad. 

Ive changed my mind. His gaze dropped, lingered on her lips.
Burning her... But you and I...were a different species. As if that mattered to her body. Gimme!

He took a step closer, invading her personal space.  Well fit, I promise you.

Tristo hrmenych! The raspy quality of his voice, all smoke and gravel...she shivered with longing. Must resist his allure. 

But...but...why? Before shed committed to Peter, shed dated around, had made out in movie theaters, cars and on couches. Shed liked kissing and touching and riding the belt buckle, as her friends had called it. Then, after committing to Peter, shed gifted him with her virginity. At first, he hadnt known what to do with herhed been just as inexperiencedand shed left each encounter disappointed. When finally shed gathered the courage to tell him what she wanted, hed satisfied her well. 

She missed sex. But connection...intimacy...she thought she missed those more

The dogs barked, jolting her from her thoughts. Theyd cleaned their food bowls, and now wanted to play. She clasped Badens hand to lead him out of the kennel. He jerked away, severing contact. 

One action. Tons of hurt. 

Im allowed to touch you and you want to have sex with me, but youre still disgusted by me. She stomped outside the kennel, done with him. Well, Im leaving. Good riddance! Your do-what-I-say-or-else attitude was annoying, anyway.
He darted in front of her, stopping her. Breath caught in her throat as sunlight streamed over him, paying his chiseled features absolute tribute, making his bronzed skin glimmer. 

So beautiful. Too beautiful. 

Im not disgusted by you. You need me. Ive come to accept it, he admitted, looking away from her. But being skin-to-skin with another is painful for me. Well have to proceed carefully. And youll get over your annoyance.
Another order!  She would show him the error of his ways.
