Nico, a powerful and immortal Anathergian warrior, likes to have fun. Especially with weapons and women. Preferably not at the same time. Life for him, and the rest of the Anathergians, has taken a recent turn for the worse. So, Nico is relieved when he gets assigned the case to find Juliana.

Read an Excerpt:

“Someone’s in the drive,” Gunner’s low voice filtered to him from downstairs.

“Shit,” Nico whispered under his breath as he closed the closet door.

He double timed it down the stairs and peeked out the front window. Larissa closed the passenger door to a sedan.

“What are we gonna do?” Gunner asked.

Nico thought fast. He pulled the beanie from his head and shook his long hair free.

“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, dude?” Gunner said.

“Take these,” he tossed the beanie and then the diary to Gunner.

Gunner peered down at the items with a blank look on his face. “What the hell am I supposed to do with these?”


One of Gunner’s dark eyebrows raised.

“Just go along with me, okay?”

The man shook his head and headed to the back of the house.

Nico straightened his shirt and dashed to the cushioned seat facing the front door. As he sat down, Larissa opened the front door and switched on the light to see Nico sitting there with an alluring look on his face. She jumped and screamed, bringing her hands to her face.

“It’s about time you got here,” Nico said, as if he knew she had been on her way.

“What in God’s name are you doing in my home?” she screeched, her face turning red.

“I was waiting for you,” he said as he stood and strolled over to her. “Just kind of hoping we could finish what we started earlier today.”

The woman’s blue gaze became dreamy.

“Is everything all right here?” the man from the car stood on the porch.

“Hey, you must be Officer…” Nico said, extending his hand.

“Forge,” he answered, surveying both of them.

“That’s right, Officer Forge,” Nico laughed. “I’m Nico, the consultant in charge of this case. I can get her back to Mr. and Mrs. Bertram’s when she’s done here.”

The man regarded Larissa. “I’m fine,” she said.

The officer nodded and returned to his car. Nico watched the vehicle back out of the driveway and make its way down the street, and then shut the door.

He swiveled back to Larissa, reaching for her waist. “Now, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted?”

Larissa’s red polished fingers rose to his wide shoulders. “I think we were right here.” Her lips came up hard against his. Past her shoulder, he saw Gunner peek around the corner. Nico raised his eyebrows and Gunner rolled his eyes and disappeared again.

Nico broke free and, with a sly smile, took her hand and led her upstairs.

They made it to the landing, and she spun him around and started unbuttoning his shirt. He walked backward to the double doors leading to the master bedroom.

“I have wanted to taste you—all of you—from the first moment I laid eyes on you,” she said, her voice breathless.

“Do I taste as good as you imagined?” They made their way through the doorway. He spotted Gunner spying around the top of the stairs.
