Brent fell in love when he and a group of humans were pulled through an interdimensional rift, but he’s the Alpha of the Juneau Pack and she’s a trauma surgeon from Seattle on vacation in Alaska. His responsibilities make relocation impossible, and he can’t imagine she’d want to leave her friends, family, and career to be the Alpha’s mate in a werewolf pack.
Kennedy found there was more to Alaska than beautiful scenery: angels, monsters with laser weaponry, and werewolves. One werewolf in particular has occupied her every thought since they returned home from the other side of an interdimensional rift. But five minutes after their rescue, Brent walked away, leaving her to continue her vacation of hiking and climbing in the Kenai wilderness with a werewolf guide.
But a group of shifter hunters has Kennedy’s guide in their crosshairs—and they don’t care if a human becomes collateral damage. Suddenly love isn’t the only thing on the line as Brent races to find Kennedy and get both her and her guide out of Kenai before the hunters can track them down.
Dozens of different diseases and pests have suddenly infected the California winery’s grapes in a biblical-scale blight. The warmonger she thought was a one-night stand has shown up uninvited with an indecent proposal. And now she finds she’ll be working side-by-side with an elf—a horticultural “expert” brought in to heal the plague-ridden vines, who would just as soon kill her as pass her the pruning shears.
The final blow comes when she’s assaulted in the vineyard while trying to heal the infected vines under cover of darkness, and threatened with worse if she continues. Heal the vines and risk her life by angering two plague demons, or turn her back on the winery and the dying plants, and walk away? For a half-elf/half-succubus, there’s only one clear choice.
Demon corpses have been found drained of all energy, their spirit selves ripped clean from their bodies. Sam’s angel, Gregory, considers her a prime suspect, so when an angel is discovered dead in the same manner, he drags her to Seattle and Juneau to try to clear her name. The race is on to find the murderer before Sam’s secret is exposed and she’s blamed for the deaths. But is a devouring spirit really the killer, or is there more to the deaths than either Sam or Gregory suspect?
But elves aren't the only problem facing Sam. The ancient demon, Ahriman is holding her to the terms and conditions of the breeding contract she signed – and one thousand years under his claw is looking to be the most terrifying thing in all of Hel.
