“Ah, romance is in the air.”
“You are so right, Ted. Just look at the happy couples.” Bear titled his head so it touched his twin’s.
Kalissa, snuggled into Ayden’s side on the sofa, raised a brow at the hell hounds. “What do you know about romance?”
Teddy-Bear lifted their chins and puffed out their chest. “We were quite the object of desire back in the Afterworld.”
Khloe snickered from the desk where she worked on a new graphics for Magical Enchantments–the magickin social network. “I bet. How many two-headed hell hounds are there in the Afterworld?”
“Doesn’t matter.” Bear rolled his eyes.
“Sure it don’t,” Khloe replied sarcastically never taking her eyes from the computer.
“Everyone has a different view on romance. I like quiet music, candle-lit dinner followed by a message.” Kalissa laughed softly when Ayden whispered in her ear.
Khloe shook her head. “Not me. I don’t have to time for. If a man wants to impress me he needs know how to take down a demon.” She flashed a smirk to the death demon stretched out in the arm chair beside the desk.
Jagger’s lips curled into a lazy smile. “I know how to make that wildcat purr.”
Teddy-Bear stand and walk toward the backdoor.
“Where are you two going?” Khloe calls out.
“Outside to get some air. The TMI levels are overloading the other weird shit that’s been going on.”
They opened the door using their telekinesis and left the others laughing behind them.

Kalissa Bradenton isn’t your average coffee shop owner. Born to an elite witch bloodline with a rare genetic mutation, she’s a Divinity on a mission. The death of her parents sends her away from her Maxville, Florida, home and into an ancient war between witches and demons. When childhood friend Ayden Daniels comes to her aid after an almost fatal accident, visions of a past she doesn’t remember sparks an old flame and new desires. With the past slowly becoming clearer, she eagerly sets her sights on mending Ayden’s heart and gaining his trust–until a ghost from her past returns to claim her as his demonic mate.
Ayden, the new Sheriff of Maxville and grandson of the oldest living Divinity, is investigating a series of Divinity killings. When he comes face-to-face with the one woman he hopes to have little to no contact with, old pain rises, quickly followed by anger and resentment. Through his rare power of adaptability, he learns actions from the past may not be what they seem. Hope fills his broken heart and determination pushes him to do whatever it takes to win Kalissa’s heart once more before he loses her forever.
Together they must find the strength to mend their tormented souls, while fighting an evil out to destroy the world.
Ayden Daniel had only been in Charlotte an hour before his cousin, Zach, called with a favor. No. Not quite a favor. A request that sounded more like a plea.
“You’re shittin’ me?”
“I’m afraid not. Charlotte PD said it was a hit and run.”
Right. “Please tell me she’s …”
“She’s alive. A bump on the head, but she’ll be okay.” Zach hesitated before continuing. “I know how you feel about her, but you’ll have to go get her.”
A muttered curse slipped from his lips at the same time his heart lodged in his throat. “Fine.” The word came out in an irritated huff. Ayden hung up and wished he had never answered the damn phone. No, that wasn’t completely true. He would never forgive himself if something happened to Kalissa that he could have prevented.
She was the one person he’d hoped to avoid as much as possible when he’d taken his place as Sheriff of Maxville. It wasn’t that he disliked her, that was the problem. Despite his better judgment and a glutton for punishment, he still cared too damn much for the woman.
The mere mention of her name made his pulse race with excitement. His body hardened at the thought of seeing her again after fifteen years. But his mind screamed to walk away. To let her be. Kalissa was trouble, and a hazard to his heart. She’d broken it once—torn it right out of his chest—at the age of seventeen.
A human friend had laughed at the mention of their young age and Ayden’s claim that she was the only one for him. A mistake on his part to confide in a human and expect him to understand magickin way of life. Magickin children developed at a faster rate. At the age of seventeen, he was as mature as most twenty-five-year-old humans and fully aware that he had met his eternal companion.
They were life partners—magical mates—destined to spend their extended lives together. To find one at such a young age was a gift.
A gift she stole from him.
