Genre: LGBTQ Dark M/M Paranormal Romance
One brief encounter and Jimena is determined to make Nic his at all costs. He wants him to be completely and utterly at his mercy. But, popular, gorgeous Nic doesn’t see Jimena. He is background material at best.
Until Jimena drugs him at a bar and ties him up in his basement. If that didn’t get Nic’s attention, then the dozen or so bodies buried in the basement he’s tied up in does. Nic feeds on souls. They taste better if they are flavored by strong emotion, usually fear or pain.
Jimena tastes different. His soul is flavored in obsessive love, focused on Nic. He’s never been loved by someone before, even if it is an unhealthy love and Jimena wants him dead. Not in a hateful way, but in a, I don’t want anyone else to have you, kind of way.
If only Nic could convince him to try being a normal boyfriend, he might be able to feed off Jimena’s soul for a few decades. A deadly dance begins. A demon wanting to be loved and a serial killer wanting to kill his lover. If they can find a balance, they might just find they’re perfect for each other.
