    Summary

    Elena was on her way home from class when she happened to turn her head at just the right moment and saw it through the window of the bookshop.

    It being a large, black snake curled up on a chair in the last patches of quickly fading sunlight.

    Elena jerked to a stop with a gasp, right in the middle of the pavement. She all but pressed her face to the window, studying the snake curiously. It was quite large, even coiled as it was in its big leather armchair, and although its golden eyes appeared to be open, she could tell that it was probably snoozing. “What a beautiful creature,” Elena said to herself in a hushed, awed voice, and then made the snap decision to go inside the shop for another look.

    Summary

    The angel is a surprisingly good kisser. All soft lips and gentle sighs, and the careful graze of fingertips along Crowley's jaw. But there's also the scrape of fingernails at the nape of his neck, the pins and needles shiver it sends down his spine, the slightest catch of teeth on his lower lip.

    Summary

    FBI Agent Damen Akielon spent years chasing Laurent Crawford before finally locking him away for bank robbery. When Laurent escapes just a few months before his sentence is up, it sets off a string of events that Damen never saw coming. Damen catches him again, but now Laurent is out of prison on work release – with Damen as his handler – on the condition that he helps the FBI take down a crime syndicate they’ve been after for years, run by a shadowy figure known only as The Regent. But Damen can tell Laurent is keeping secrets and has an agenda of his own, and Damen is determined to find out what Laurent’s hiding.

    Summary

    Damen’s grip on his arm is painful. His face in Laurent’s is ashy and sheened with sweat.

    He says, “There was something in my drink.”

    (Damen is poisoned, Jokaste is framed, Laurent must find them an heir. He's put it off for so long already.)
