What’s a snake shifter demon in love with a mortal woman to do when they can’t seem to do anything but argue anymore? Try desperate measures, that’s what.
Dale Thornson is desperate not to lose the woman he loves, but not willing to risk her life by giving her what she wants from him. He wants to try a small dose of an aphrodisiac first, see if plenty of sex will win her back.
Val Mays is in love with her demon man but is sure he will one day grow tired of her and move on. To prevent this, she wants him to brand her as his, even though it could possibly kill her. She is willing to risk it. Will she win her way? Or will her demon lover hold his own and continue refusing to make her permanently his?
The characters were well developed, the conflicts believable for their world, and the sex hot, hot, hot.
