For one hundred years, a demon has been watching, waiting, plotting…
White witch Sage Matthews has inherited a gift that makes her both integral to an ancient prophecy and a target for a demon-possessed serial killer. Assigned to catch the killer, Detective Sergeant Ethan Blade falls wildly, and inconveniently, in love with the one woman he doesn’t know how to protect.
Together Sage and Ethan delve into the prophecy, and the more they learn, the more deadly their situation becomes. At midnight on the night of the blood moon, an ancient doorway will open, and a master demon and his horde will pour through and unleash hell on earth. Only Sage can stop their onslaught—but not if the demon kills her first.
With the blood moon looming, Sage discovers she can join forces with “the alchemist’s son” to destroy the demon. But who is the alchemist’s son? And will he be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice required to end this struggle between light and dark forever?

“Thought I told you not to move.” His voice was barely recognizable, little more than a sexy rasp. He motioned to the chair where his utility belt lay. “Do I have to use my cuffs, or will you stay still?”
Cuffs? Oh hell, yes! An image of herself, restrained on the bed while Ethan teased and pleasured her needy flesh, flashed into her mind.
“Where do we go from here?” Ethan repeated her words with an edge she hadn’t used.
She trembled, but not from fear. The part of him that was pure primal male rolled off him and scorched her skin.
“There are many things I need to say to you about what happened today, but I don’t know the words to convey everything to you so you’ll understand. I only know how it feels inside.” He tapped his chest, over his heart, with a closed fist.
“And words can be misinterpreted.” There was no denying the raw sexuality in his tone. He took his hands off the sill, dropping them to the collar of her V-neck T-shirt. “I’m going to show you instead.”
With one quick movement, he ripped the fabric down the middle, exposing her lacy black bra, and she gasped. He held her arms back, trapped in the torn material, his eyes darkening as he watched her chest rise and fall.
Brushing his palms down her arms, he shoved what was left of her shirt to the floor. He trailed his fingers across her collarbone, barely touching the parts of her breasts that swelled over the top of her bra.
“Fuck, Sage, you make me want to be anything but gentle.”
“I don’t remember asking you to be.”
