Seraphina Orielle, an angel of divine fire and light, was also an oracle of foresight. Considered adolescent among her peers, she had yet to master her gift of precognition when her first vision came to pass; a captivating male whose destiny was intimately intertwined with her own. Yet he was not of angelic design. In fact, he was very far from it. Tragically, by the time Sera discovered this pivotal detail, he had already attained ownership of her heart.
But not her ability to flee…
A hundred years later and Cole Asteroth does whatever the hell he wants. When he’s not busy, that is, with ‘dirty deeds, done dirt cheap’ for his master. Ornery and sarcastic, he gets his kicks wreaking havoc in the human realm. Oh, and making very un-angelic women beg for his touch. Life is good…
Until fate finally catches up with him.
A few weak moments, one too many innocent visitations and the two are entangled all over again. But not as they had been before; things are much more complicated now. And Cole no longer possesses much in the way of faith and forgiveness.
As the estranged lovers struggle with what path to take, they quickly discover that destiny, too, is a reluctant second chance provider. As outside resistance and decadent captivity ensues, can their situation get any more exasperating?
His eyes flickered beneath closed lids as a mist formed inside his dream. Before him, a disturbingly familiar, heavenly vision appeared; a female he hadn’t seen since he was a young demon. The female who had destroyed his world. He looked around and quickly realized he was in a place he hadn’t seen in eons, either. Not since before he’d gotten sucked into The Master’s servitude. He frowned, confused.
“Why am I here, Sera? Miss me so much you just had to come to me in Sleepy Land?” he smirked, hiding his true feelings beneath his shining personality. In truth, he was suddenly a riot of emotions, emotions he thought he’d buried deep a long time ago.
He froze as her small hand reached out to him. As she floated closer, he had absolutely no idea what to do.
“You know why you’re here, Cole,” she murmured tentatively.
“Can’t say that I do,” he countered, purposely playing dumb.
“Your words pain me. Do you truly not remember us?” Genuine sorrow belied her small pout.
“Oh, I remember lots of things, like there being no ‘us.’ There hasn’t been an ‘us’ for a hundred years.” He took a deep breath, careful not to show any emotion as she came ever closer. “So I ask again, why am I here? What do you want?”
Her big, ethereal eyes blinked at his harshness. “Why do you act this way? Are you not happy to see me again?” She took a step back, sad confusion dimming her gaze.
Cole shook his head. “I’m not the green, stupid youth I once was. I’m something your kind hates. So why now, after all this time, have you decided to come to me?” His voice grew darker as he pinned her with a glare. “Wait. Don’t tell me. You’ve fallen so now you can lower your standards. I wasn’t good enough for you, remember Sera? You left me, not the other way around.”
He turned with a growl and ran a hand through his hair. What the hell? His life was a cluster fuck from one extreme to the other. He looked back at Sera and his heart pinched at the sight. So clearly he remembered that week they spent together. Naive he had been, but not so jaded as he was now.
He started to pace, shaking his head in frustration. What was she doing back in his world again? He wasn’t going to let her permanently uproot a part of him he’d repressed so deep he’d in any other situation need a shovel to find again. After all he’d been through since she’d left him, and all he was presently going through, he really didn’t need this.
As he stopped in front of her, he got a whiff of her scent. Fresh and sweet, like morning dew. He nearly groaned, growing instantly hard. Abruptly he grabbed her shoulders, intentionally forcing her into her physical form. “Why, Sera? Why now?”
