New Orleans at night can be a magical place. High energy. Hot music. Hotter men.
But there’s a reason this city carries a haunted, mystical aura when the streets clear and the mist rises. There’s a reason one shouldn’t stray too far alone…like I did.
Who am I? Genevieve Drake.
I’m not the helpless kind of girl. Never needed a man to come to my rescue. That is, not until my twentieth birthday when some dude nearly chokes me to death in an alley. A hot stranger saves me by splitting the dude in half, ripping a monster from inside, and then incinerates it into ash.
The hot guy? Jude Delacroix—Dominus Daemonum, Master of Demons. Now my guardian, whether I like it or not. But I’m seriously beginning to like it.
The dude choking me? One of many demons from the underworld trying to abduct or kill my ass. As the prime target of the demon prince, Dante, who has all kinds of lascivious and sadistic plans for me, I now have no problem accepting Jude’s protection.
Why me? I’m a Vessel, one who is born to serve the light but can be corrupted and used as a weapon for darkness. Until that fateful night, I had no idea this world even existed.
Now, I just want to survive it.
