Desire Me is coming May 30th…
Metal flashes at the corner of my eye and then a burst of sound shatters the world.
The guy lurches hard. Something wet splatters my face. He sags to the ground.
I can’t breathe. Can’t move.
My mouth opens, but no sound emerges. Blood is seeping from beneath the guy, staining his green t-shirt and spreading across the concrete to encroach on his hair—which is rust-colored, I realize, not brown like I’d thought. My mistake.
I can’t take my eyes from him.
“Alright, then,” Kyle says.
“Wha…” I don’t recognize my own voice. “What—”
“Oh, he wouldn’t have made it. Humans die from shadow-crossing unprotected, even without being shoved past all the defenses around that roach motel where you were hiding.” He chuckles. “So how ya been, Cait?”
I want to scream.
Kyle sighs. “Get her up, would you? This is pathetic.”
Hands grab me and haul me upright. My wide eyes manage to turn from the guy on the ground to the man holding me. He’s got to weigh three hundred pounds and he’s easily a foot taller than I am, with a snake tattooed in strangely metallic ink on his neck. Other people surround us, a dozen at least. They regard me expressionlessly while one of them tucks a gun away beneath his jacket.
I look back toward Kyle. He’s still grinning like this is some great joke.
Reality is creeping back, though. Awareness of my body and the space around me. And with it comes rage. Cold, burning rage.
“What do you want?” I growl.
“Oh, look at that. She’s being brave now.” Kyle smirks. “We want your help, Cait. Don’t you remember?”
“I don’t work for fucking Linden. Get that through your head, asshole.”
Kyle makes a dismissive gesture. “Yeah, yeah, we figured that out. But that doesn’t change much for Josephine’s little girl, now does it?”

Demons are real.
And now I’m one of them.
I never expected my boring, regular life to change on a night out with my best friend. I only thought I was going to celebrate her birthday at a local club, not end up in a hospital after witnessing supernatural events that couldn’t possibly be real.
Talk about being wrong.
Now I’ve drawn the attention of the most dangerous forces in the demon world. I’m being stalked by a guy who can be in multiple places at once. I’m overwhelmed by a hunger I can’t shake—an impossible hunger that compels me to feed off the sexual energy of others, even if it might make me kill somebody. I am losing control and entering a secret world that exists in the shadows of my own—a world filled with vampires, werewolves, and demons who look just like anyone else.
The night was supposed to be simple. Normal. After all, I thought I was human and my life thus far has been unbelievably ordinary.
Now it’s anything but.
