Centuries earlier, Prince Darake made a decision. The repercussions binding him to his realm. Unable to leave and prevented from finding his destined mate, not even his trusted brothers held the power to prevent his descent into the dark. Someone had to pay for the pain he carried, and through a prism he found his victim - a female in the realm of humans. As he suffered, so would she…

Running from her past, Jessica built a new life in Brey City. A place where no one knew her, and she became just another face in the crowd. But soon her dreams are invaded by a male who is handsome and holds an attitude which sparks her own. She fears his presence will bring into the light what she has fought so hard to keep hidden, destroying everything she had built.

Two worlds clash, and as events spiral out of control around them, can they put both their differences and trust issues aside long enough to not only face a threat barreling towards them, but deal with their growing feelings for one another before time runs out?

Chapter One


A loud peal of thunder sounded outside the palace, its arrival sparked by Darake’s dark mood. Demons scattered as he approached, not wanting to get in his way and risk losing either a limb or their lives. Usually one of his three brothers could pull him back enough to partially level him out, easing the storm raging within him and the one which rolled across their realm. This time they failed and wisely left him to work through it.


He came to a halt then slammed a fist against one of the walls as a face from his past rose to torment him. “Isobel,” he snarled. A female demon possessing unparalleled beauty which masked a vicious and cold temperament. Anything she wanted, she got. Usually. He had been her target, and his refusal to take her as his mate set a chain of events in motion which ended with his brothers and himself being cursed by her.


Bound to their realm, denied the right to go to the world of humans to seek their true mates. Four demon princes brought to their knees by a vengeful female.  The Consilium Daemoniorum had found her guilty of the traitorous act, sentencing her to have her realm seized and her powers bound. But the bitch fled before the latter could be set in place. Rumors had reached him not long after her escape that she had been killed. Something he refused to believe until her body was set at his feet and he cleaved her head from her neck.
