Therein lay the threat, for they were the portals into the
Sins’ lairs: Wrath, Sloth, Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Envy, and Pride. From almost the dawn of time, the seven monsters dedicated themselves to toying with every living being, wreaking havoc and despair wherever they went.
It was for that reason the Virtues created the Guardians. Max touched the tattoo on his left arm, he didn’t need to see it to be able to trace the half moon braided with tree vines and crossed over by a black arrow.
Vince Malum.

The two words were burned in his mind as if affixed there by a hot iron: Defeat evil. Destroy the Sins and maintain the balance. It was his purpose in life.

A burst of adrenaline rushed through him, and he glanced at the door at the back of the room. Carved in stone, the image of a sexless being mocked them, alluring at one angle and defying with its beastly form at another. Above it, written in the ancient language and glittering under the torchlight, was the name of one of the worst sins
known to mankind: Lust.

How can a man love a succubus without literally losing his heart? 

Alpha Protector Max almost died during his last mission to Lust’s hellish lair, but the worst torture was his failure to save Eva, a young woman who begged for his help. When he meets her again in Spain, he discovers two things. One, she is his mate. Two, she is also a succubus.

Though Eva has not come into her full power, her love could still be fatal. For how long will he be able to defy her allure? 

Pleasure is Eva’s business. Love isn’t. 

Although unaware of her true nature, as a luxury escort, she is used to men falling at her feet. Yet, Max doesn't. Though his attraction mirrors hers, the soldier does things differently and she can't help falling for him.

And Eva is terrified by her recurring nightmares. When someone from her past shows up, and the dreams become reality, there is only one thing that can save Max’s heart.

  1. Wonderful encapsulation of his quest and duty. Such a job he has ahead of him!

  2. Well that was a very cool snippet indeed, loved his tattoo!Congratulations on the book's nomination for the award and best wishes...

  3. His quest seems impossible, but I suppose they can at least hold back the tide? Congrats on the nomination!

  4. Sounds like his life's purpose could be deadly. And he's right--lust is one of the deadliest of the sins. Nice snippet!

  5. Considering the book's cover, I find myself wondering how you'll reconcile the statement that lust is one of the worst sins known to mankind. You've set up a nice tension there.

  6. I'm not convinced that last is the worst sin, but that doesn't serve the story. Congrats on your nomination!

  7. That's quite a responsibility. Good job setting up the conflict. Congrats on the nomination.

  8. Loved the tension-filled snippet. I'm intrigued.
