“THE HOTTEST COLLECTION OF STUDS IN ROMANCE. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!”—New York Times Bestselling Author Angela Knight
Within the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Rhage is the warrior vampire with the strongest appetites. He's the deadliest fighter, the most voracious lover, the quickest to act on his impulses. He's also been cursed with two hundred years of hell. Possessed by a beast, he lives in fear of the times when his inner dragon comes out and he's a danger to everyone around him.
Mary Luce has unwittingly found herself in the vampire world, and under Rhage's protection. With her own life-threatening curse to bear, she's not looking for love. Besides, she's stopped believing in saving grace and miracles long ago. But when Rhage's intense sexual attraction turns into emotional bonding, he knows he must have her for his mate. As their enemies close in, Mary finds herself praying for something she fears she’ll never have: life eternal with the one she loves.

As he stroked himself, the scent of her arousal bloomed like a bouquet in the room. “Come over here, Mary.” He twisted his hips. “I’m not sure I’m doing this right. It feels so much better when you touch me.” “You are incorrigible.” “Just looking for some instruction.” “Like you need that,” she muttered, taking off her sweater. They made love in an unhurried, glorious way. But when he held her afterward, he couldn’t go to sleep. Neither
the battle release he so desperately needed. Damn it— “Rhage.” V waved his gloved hand in the air. “You with me here at all, my brother?” “Sorry, what?” He rubbed his eyes. His face. His biceps. His skin itched so badly he felt like he was wearing an ant suit. “You are seriously out of it.” “Nah, I’m cool—” “Then why’re you working your arms like that?” Rhage dropped his hands. Only to start massaging his thighs. “We’ve got to get you to One Eye,” V said softly. “You’re losing it. You need

He cocked an eyebrow at her and then went back to staring at his brother. “I’m the evil one, in case you haven’t figured it out.” “I wanted your name, not your calling.” “Being a bastard’s more of a compulsion, really.
