About the book –
When demons threaten London, Lady Belinda answers the call.
Lord Gabriel Thurston returns home from war to find his fiancée is not the sweet young girl he left behind. She’s grown into a mysterious woman who guards her dark secrets well. When he sees her sneaking away from a ball, he’s convinced it’s for a lover’s rendezvous. Following her to London’s slums, Gabriel watches in horror as his fiancée ruthlessly slays a man.
Lady Belinda Carlisle’s only concern was her dress for the next ball—until demons nearly killed her and changed everything. A lady by day, and a demon hunter by night, she knows where her duty lies. Ending her betrothal is the best way to protect Gabriel from death by a demon’s hand.
Gabriel soon realizes, like him, Belinda has been fighting for her country. He joins in the fight, determined to show her that their love can endure, stronger than ever.
Belinda woke to a chilled room. The chair in the corner creaked against the floor. “Claire?”
She rolled over to see who was in the dark room and why the window had been opened.
He was still as a cat, sitting in a small chair by her writing desk. One leg stretched out in a relaxed pose, but even with only the fire to light him, he looked ready to pounce. Anyone else might have seen a man at his leisure, but she knew him. He gripped the arms of the chair and his eyes narrowed. There was a movement along his jaw where it ticked whenever control of his temper stretched too far. It was rare for her fiancé to lose his temper.
Her heart pounded and her hands shook. She gripped the covers trying to still he nerves.
“I see you’ve remembered my given name, my lady.” His voice was low and dangerous.
“Are you drunk?” She sat up and leaned against the headboard pushing the mass of unruly hair from her face.
“What are you doing in my bedroom, my lord? How did you get in here?”
He stood up so suddenly, she gasped and pulled the sheet up around her neck. In two steps, he’d crossed the room and loomed over her bed.
“Why don’t you scream?” he asked.
“I…I am not afraid of you, my lord.” She could have kicked herself for showing any sign of fear.
“You should be.” He touched her cheek so lightly she might have dreamt it.
The touch sent a bolt of lightning directly between her legs. Belinda shifted uncomfortably. “Gabriel, what do you want?”
He sat down on the edge of her bed and put his head in his hands. “What do I want?”
Oh, how she wanted to reach out and comfort him, but she held back waiting to hear him explain.
“I want what I lost. I want four years of my life back. I want a wife who has kept herself pure while I was away risking my life for our country.” He narrowed his gaze on her.
She had never seen such pure anger from him before, and for the first time she feared him just a little. She shook her head. This was Gabriel. He would never hurt her. Pushing aside her covers, she moved to sit next to him on the bed. “You cannot regain the past, my lord. Those four years are gone forever.”
“They are with me still.” His eyes darkened, a crease formed between them, and he looked away.
His words stirred an ache deep in her chest.
