The last thing he expects to find is the one exasperating female on his hunting ground in the middle of a dangerous demon ruckus, hauling him into chaos
Hes a killer
Through the ages, deadly Guardian T}r watches over the mortal realm with a sword that is as blood-drenched as his soul in his quest for vengeancehis sarcasm a shield for the deepening hell inside him. Until one glimpse of a breathtaking, carefree female stops him dead in his tracksbut shes the one person he can never have. Still, she has to be the most exasperating female on the planet, with a tendency to land herself in sticky situations.
Shes happiness incarnate
Bumping shoulders with intractable immortals is not Kira Smiths idea of fun. An unfortunate encounter with a certain annoying, |ber hot warrior undoes all her hard work, and the homeless boy she rescued escapes back into the demon-infested alleys. Kiras determined to find the childeven if it means tolerating the arrogant, know-it-all as a bodyguard.
For her, he’ll break every rule…
Thrown together in this treacherous hunt, long suppressed emotions unravel. T}r will do anything to claim the woman who stirs his deepest desire and Kira longs to succumb to the happiness she finds in him. But Fate isnt always kind, revealing a dark destiny that could very well tear them apart
As T}r jogged down to the ground floor, Hedori acknowledged him with a nod, and the ice queen whod reigned during the reception and tacitly ignored his provocations turned, too. Her hazel-green eyes flared in irritation, the color a startling contrast to her luscious, creamy-latte skin.
Sire, we have a bit of a situation, Hedori said. With the fae here, and guests still about, I cannot leave the castle just yet. Would you take Kira home?
No-no, Heds, she quickly countered. Ill wait for you.
He should leave, walk out. Aethan or another could take her, but T}r couldnt resist. Ah, Fluff, you wound me. Truly.
Her head snapped his way. Yes maybe, if I thought for one second there was a heart or soul buried somewhere deep down under that shell, she said sweetly, tone spiked with venom. She faced Hedori again, sweet as treacle. How long do you think youll be?
Hiding his amusement, T}r sighed loudly as if put out. Cmon, Fluff, lets get you home.
She pivoted so fast, fingers fisting as if she wanted to punch him. Call me that again, and I swear, Ill She broke off, her expression tightening as softer footsteps echoed. Lila Smith, their Oracle and the she-devils grandmother, rounded the staircase a moment later.
Hedori nodded to them and departed.
Thank goodness youre still here, Kira dear, Lila breathed. Would you Oh, hello, Warrior, she greeted him softly with a regal incline of her gray-haired head.
Lila usually treated the Guardians injured by those annoying demon bolts with her miracle potions and salves since they couldnt self-heal that crap fast enough. More annoying, those open wounds acted like a damn tracking device for the hellscums.
Oracle, he returned politely.
Lila glanced back at Kira. I have to go to Seattle for a few days. The coven has a problem and needs my help. It would ease my mind if you stayed here at the castle until my return.
Gran, I dont know why you worry so much. Its not the first time Ive been alone. Besides, I have to go to work. Ill be okay, really.
T}r could sense the Oracles growing anxiety, though her expression remained serene. It could only mean that whatever had gotten her so worked up was serious. Michael should talk to her. Better if the Guardians knew what trouble was stirring.
Lila glanced at him. Warrior? Would you?
Her horrified yell had T}r narrowing his eyes. Hed be the first to admit that he wasnt fit company for females to be around for any length of time, but she and the Oracle were under Michaels protection, and by default, the Guardians, too.
And he took his damn job seriously.
It would be my absolute pleasure, he overrode Kiras protest with as much sincerity as he could dredge up.
If it were anyone else they would have undoubtedly stepped back at her death glare.
But his own perverse nature when it came to her wouldnt let him back down. He merely quirked an eyebrow, enjoying her flush of frustration, and sent a quick telepathic message to Aethan. Babysit Ely tonight. Have to do a favor for the Oracle.
Would that have anything to do with a certain bridesmaid who wants to leave immediately? the Empyrean shot back, laughter echoing through their mental connection.
Damn smug bastard. As if he needed another funny-man around. T}r shut off their mind-link with a hard slam.
Are you leaving also? T}r asked the Oracle, suspending his silent stand-off with Kira.
Yes, if you wouldnt mind, Warrior.
Not at all. He crossed to the enormous front door, opened it, and stood back.
Ill go get my coat. Lila hurried off.
Kira stomped past him with no outdoor wear or scarf. Hell, hed never known lush lips could thin so much. T}r followed her out into the freezing weather. Wheres your jacket?
Yeah, you are, he muttered under his breath.
Her head snapped to him, eyes flashing in suspicion.
He cast her an innocent stare.
Scowling, she went back to slaying the trees with her glower.
He shook his head wryly. It must be the drugged air from so many flowers in the castle responsible for him uttering that provocative nonsense.
