Book Description
Valla Moonring, an assassin for the Order of the Morgon Guard, is ordered on a mission into the Wastelands of Aria—a formidable, icy wilderness fraught with all manner of dangers, including outlaws, deadly weather, and big-game predators.

To her great distaste, she’s partnered with a Nightwing Security operative, Conn Rowanflame, a Morgon with the aggravating ability to get under her skin. While she takes her mission seriously, Conn’s confident charm throws her off balance, a dangerous place to be in conditions like these. Especially when cold nights require close contact.

Sensual attraction binds them ever closer, igniting a passion of unexpected force—the soulfire. But when the hunters become the hunted, their bond could prove perilous. Even fatal…

“You know me, do you? And what exactly do you know?”

“I know you’re the kind of guy that charms his way through life and is used to getting what he wants. Especially when it comes to women.”

“You’d be surprised that’s not always the case. Though yes, I’ve been known to enjoy the company of the fairer sex. And from what I understand, they’ve enjoyed my company as well.”

Her lips tightened into a line, a flash of blue-fire despite the shield of her goggles. She poked her finger in my chest. Actually poked me. “Well, get this, Conn Rowanflame. I’m not one of these women you can charm into bed. I’m not the kind of woman you can toy with and toss out once you’re finished playing.”

“I never thought you were.”

“I don’t play those games.”

“I never thought you did.”

The sincerity in my voice must’ve stunned her silent for she simply stared, her breaths puffing out in white clouds. She removed her finger, dropping her hand to her side.

“I know what kind of woman you are, Valla. The kind I want to know better. Not simply in my bed.”

“Ha.” She crossed her arms, flaring out her wings. “But you admit you want to bed me.”

Unable to prevent the rise of one eyebrow, I smiled. “Oh, I definitely want to bed you, sweetheart. I’m only made of flesh and blood after all.”

“And beast,” she added.

“You got that right.”
