A DARK LEGACY where only the strong
survive and those who are Goddess touched can complete the warriors who fight
to protect the world from the creatures that go bump in the night.
Jennaveve, the Fey chosen by the Goddess
to be the queen of her people for the past few millennium, is tired and wishes
for a break, but hadn’t counted on being reduced to almost mortal thanks to a
dark stranger. They say you should be careful what you wish for. The last time
she’d taken a break, her Fey had left their realm, resulting in shifters on
Earth known as the Mystic and Iron Wolves and even more she was still searching
Damien and Lucas Cordell knew they’d
share a Hearts Love when the time came. As the twin sons of the Vampire King
who’d mated a shifter, they were the first of their kind. When they’d thought
their mate was finally within their reach and was a shifter like their mother
only to realize she wasn’t theirs, they’d almost lost their lives to the alpha
of the Iron Wolves, Kellen Styles. Instead, the error led them to the being
that was…the Fey Queen Jennaveve. Only she was even more elusive than the wind.
Time and patience was something Damien
and Lucas had in spades, until the female they’d already laid claim to, even if
she hadn’t accepted them yet, was taken by an enemy. Saving Jenna became their
one and only focus. As time and realms slip between them, their fear for her
had them forgetting about patience and made claiming Jenna as their Hearts
Love, hoping she accepted their Dark Embrace.
Will the Cordell Twins be able to rescue
Jenna from the evil who has taken her? Will Jenna get her powers back? Who is
the dark presence and how will they defeat a being who is strong enough to
bring the Fey Queen down to her knees?

They both turned as one toward the door as a commotion
swirled into the room.
“What have you done?” Raina asked.
Lucas looked at the tall man who followed behind their
sister, waiting to see what Creed, the son of Satan, had to say. Hellboy
himself would be a good one to have on their side. “Shit, how’d you get in?” he
asked as realization dawned.
Damien flashed to his sister. “Where did you come from?” He
held her by the arms, giving her a little shake.
A deep rumble came from Creed. “Boy, I suggest you unhand my
Eros, or I’ll remove your arms from your body.”
Lucas came to stand next to his brother. “Our Hearts Love is
missing along with our father. We’ve been locked into this fucking castle and
you two just strolled in like it’s nothing. We just want to know if you can get
us out.” The last was yelled at a decibel that bordered on a roar, but Lucas
was at the zero fucks giving point.
“You got two seconds before I start dismembering your
brother. Tell him to get his fingers, palms, and any other body part off my
Raina if he wants to keep them.” Creed’s voice had become the deep tone of his
“Damien, you might want to take a step back before we have to
rumble with our brother-in-law in front of baby sis here. Raina, please answer
the damn question while our brother is letting you go. Now, Damien, release
her.” He put as much order behind the last part, hoping to reach his twin, but
he’d never seen his twin’s eyes turn such a dark obsidian like their father’s.
Raina wrapped her arms around their brother, stilling Creed
from going killer beast. “Damien, calm down. We popped in like we always do. I
felt mama’s distress and told Creed I needed to visit. He of course insisted he
come with. When we got here I couldn’t find her, so I followed you two morons’
scents. There’s another, not quite the same, but familiar smell here too.” Her
voice shook, the slight tremor more an indication of her rising worry. She released
Damien and went to the same corner. “It’s like dad but toned down.”
“Can you track him?” Damien asked.
“No,” Creed growled.
“He took Jennaveve and our father went after him, alone.
He’s our…brother,” Damien said in a barely there whisper.
Raina spun to face them, her hand going to her throat.
Creed flashed to her side. “She will not be your sniffing
“Our father has another son. Goddess, its messed up to even
say that. He’s the one who hurt Jenna. He nearly killed her the last time he had
his hands on her. Somehow that…bastard traced her back here and took her out
from under our noses. Now, our father is tracking them alone while we stand
here arguing. We can’t breach these walls, but you two can. You can sense him,
Raina. Please.” Lucas held his hand out, holding the pillow with Jenna’s scent
still on it.
“That’s why mother is hurting.” She moved forward, a tear
slipping down her cheek. “Creed, I can’t stand here and do nothing when my
family is falling apart.”
“Damn it, I knew this family stuff was going to be a pain in
my ass.” Creed jerked the fabric out of Lucas’s hand. “It’s the Fey Queen. I
can scent her as well. We go together, all of us on one condition.”
Lucas and Damian nodded, waiting.
“I’m in charge and Raina is not to be harmed.”
“Hellboy, you can call all the shots as long as we find our
Love.” There was nothing he wouldn’t
agree to in order to find Jenna.
“I’m so going to regret this.” Creed dropped his chin to his
Raina turned to face Creed.
Damien pointed at the two. “No making out with our sister in
front of us. Save it for the bedroom. Let’s go people, times a wasting.” He
changed into all black clothing, and although his words were teasing, the
hardness behind the tone was anything but.
“Can I eat them?” Creed asked.
Raina shook her head. “You promised to be nice to my
“Can I let Liv eat them?”
Their sister snorted. “No, you told her she couldn’t do that
either. Come on, boys. Let’s get this party started.”
Lucas focused on Jenna’s sweet smile and promised himself
they’d have her tucked between them soon. When he opened his eyes, his brother
was staring with that same single minded intent on his face. “We’ll get her
back and make sure she can’t escape without one of us always knowing where
Raina snorted. “You two will learn, a woman like Jenna won’t
take to being caged or coddled.”
He met Creed’s dark stare. “How’s that working for you,
Creed lifted his middle finger. “You still wanting a way out
of here, or we gonna sling insults back and forth? Believe me, your little
nickname is nothing compared to the things I’ve been through and trust me, boy,
I’ve definitely had much bigger beings say much nastier things than that to
Instant regret punched him in the gut. “Damn it, I’m sorry
man. You’re right. Hellboy isn’t meant to be a…bad thing. Shit! I like you and
I think you’re great for our sister.”
His sister’s mate tilted his head and nodded. “Good enough.
Let’s go. One big circle like…well, one big happy family.”
Damien groaned. “Son of a bitch, not you, too.”
Their sister clapped like she was proud to be part of the
crazy, wrapping one arm around Creed and held the other out. He moved forward,
slipping his hand in hers, waiting for Damien to grab onto his other one.
Once they formed a circle, Creed’s lips formed a straight
line. “Here we go boys and my girl.”
Darkness came quickly. The opulent bedroom replaced by a
forest that had gone eerily quiet. Creed moved next to Raina, waving his hand
around her, changing the sexy dress she’d had on into all black, making her
resemble a character from the movie Underworld. He didn’t have time to question
the man as they all seemed to notice the unnatural quietness.
“Anyone know exactly where we are?” Damien’s voice echoed
Creed closed his eyes, then opened them quickly. “We’re
still on Earth. Something is unnatural here, but it’s not demon born.”
