Book Description:

Ciarán Blane had always been a soldier. It was the only way of life he knew. But he hadn't been an average warrior, since he was not even an ordinary man to begin with. He was something more than human, carrying a wild beast within, akin to a werewolf-like creature straight from legends and myths...

Except he was very real.

Ciarán was a highly trained sniper who was sent into the thick of the fray, when basic human senses were failing. He was also an executioner for his own kind, when they lost all semblance of a civilized being and had gone rogue. After years of dealing in death, he was on the cusp of losing his own humanity in favor to his ferocious nature. And once that happened, nothing but death awaited him...

Danielle Kendrick had planned her whole life up to the smallest detail, only to helplessly watch all her dreams and hopes unravel and crumple at her feet. All of it being merely the outcome of one catastrophic moment, when the truth had been revealed in all its ugly glory. Not the truth about her, but her older brother, who turned out to be a far cry from the person everybody thought he was.

After his death, all his sins fell on Dani's shoulders, in the blink of an eye costing her the loss of family, friends, a house and a dream career. But fate was not yet done with her and kept testing her by placing more challenges in her way. Was Ciarán going to be one of too many and her final downfall at once?

Being the mate to a savage alpha male would be hard enough but he was the very person, who was the catalyst behind her life falling apart. Was Danielle going to be able see past that and trust the intimidating man, who seemed to be nothing more than a hardened killer, possessing the same traits she despised in her own brother?

Will she turn her back on Ciarán and by doing that, damn them both?

Was a dominant male, used to having his way in every aspect of life, be able to rein in his primal instinct for a love he doesn't believe in? Or does the hunter turn into the very thing he hated and become the prey instead?

                                           CHAPTER 45
She wrapped her arms around his neck going to her tiptoes. Giving him more of herself, giving him all. When they finally surfaced for breath he didn't let her go, his lips sliding to her jaw, her neck, nipping at her burning skin.
Framing his face in her hands she took his mouth this time, and it was slow when he was ravaging before, but not less possessive than his kiss had been.
“Tell me.” He demanded roughly and it took her a moment to understand what more he wanted from her.
When she did, her arms dropped to her sides and she looked away from him. But then his strong fingers were there to grip her jaw and gently force her to look back at him.
There were so many emotions in the gray of his eyes she had trouble deciphering any of them. Colors were shifting so fast she needed to blink several times, but it proved futile as well.
His harsh request was beating between them like a fluttering of tiny, fragile wings of hope. Hope, because if he wanted this as the last words between them it meant he wasn't as indifferent as she had thought, Dani mused.
“I love you Ciarán.” She whispered, letting a single tear roll down her cheek.
But he caught it with his thumb, smearing the wet trail over her cheek. She wished he could dress in words all the things burning brightly in his eyes, but she didn't dare to break the intense moment of… something.
Something that was growing and spreading, but then he blinked and it was as if it has never been there.
He was looking back at her the same as usual, until she needed to fist her hands in order to stop herself from screaming. He looked satisfied by her admission and she understood it was all that it was about.
He needed to reaffirm his ownership over her, to prove to her she belonged to him, and she just gave him what he didn't even need to try too hard for.
Her bottom lip quivered, but she bit down hard on it, determined not to bare herself even more.
“I will be back soon Dani.” He said once more and after brushing her lips with his own again, he swiveled on his heel and left the house.
Danielle felt like all energy suddenly left her. But it was logical, she thought bitterly. Since she was a puppet in Ciarán's skillful hands, it made sense she was lifeless after he had left.

She slumped down into a seated position and hid her face in her hands. Heavy tears started to slide freely down her cheeks, her whole body felt battered.
Battered and defeated.
