A seductive beauty he can never have, yet can’t resist...

Cadeon Woede will stop at nothing to atone for the one wrong that will haunt him forever. But once he secures the key to his redemption, the halfling Holly Ashwin, Cade finds that the woman he thought he could use for his own ends and then forget haunts him as much as his past.

A tormented warrior she should fear, but can’t deny...

Raised as a human, Holly never knew that some frightening legends are real until she encounters a brutal demon who inexplicably guards her like a treasure. Thrust into a sensual new world of myth and power, with him as her protector, she begins to crave the demon’s wicked touch.

Surrender to dark desires...

Yet just when he earns Holly’s trust, will Cade be forced to betray the only woman who can sate his wildest needs—and claim his heart?

Payne, a Destroyer with a tormented past, has a vendetta against his father, Damon, Lord of the Underworld. Forced to put his revenge aside, he is ordered to take Chanta Timbers through her transition from human to half-goddess. She’s the hottest thing he’s ever seen or touched, and his desire for her threatens to burn him alive. With the odds stacking against him, he must relive his past, conquer his inner demons, and see past the pain that has controlled his every action in life.

As a member of the One Race, Chanta must allow Payne to take her through the transformation or die. Even though she refuses to acknowledge the desire she is feeling, she is powerless against her body’s reaction to his. No stranger to the terror of the supernatural world around her, she is scared of the beast that lurks under his skin and of the darkness that peers out of his shadowy eyes. But with each passing hour, her hunger refuses to be denied and threatens to devour them both.

The gods, meddling and always interfering with destinies, stand between Payne and Chanta, each one with their own agenda. Payne must defy the gods, endure torments and pains, and see past the revenge and bitterness that has dwelled in his heart. Chanta must see past the beast, accept him as he is, and open her future to a life with the devil’s son. With so much against them, including an impending war in the Heavens and the Underworld, can they defy the odds and accept the love and desire that is screaming both their names?

Sensuality Level: Sensual
Before Release Me and Claim Me turned J. Kenner into a sensation, this electrifying author had been thrilling paranormal romance readers for years as J. K. Beck. Now this eBook bundle brings together the six novels and short story that comprise her entire Shadow Keepers series:

WHEN WICKED CRAVES
MIDNIGHT (SHORT STORY)
WHEN PASSION LIES

WHEN TEMPTATION BURNS
 
In this seductive world, vampires and werewolves wage an age-old feud on the fringes of human society. As Los Angeles teeters on the brink of apocalypse, the Shadow Alliance is dedicated to keeping the peace—and keeping their secrets. From a half-daemon master of control and the sinfully sweet reporter who makes him crave the pleasures he’s denied himself for centuries, to the strong-willed, ravishing succubus who must join a ferociously alluring enemy to survive an even more lethal threat, their stories reveal what it means to surrender to immortal and passionate love.
