On a devilish sabbatical in Europe, Azzie discovers that morality plays are all the rage.

But the forces of Good are determined to close the play before it opens. New characters suddenly start roaming the stage, such as a Grateful Dead-listening Cyclops, and Azzie’s own protagonists begin changing their hearts’ desires on the slightest whim. This is one theatrical production that could do without an angel – and there’s even worse news waiting in the wings…
Sherrilyn Kenyon - Sins of the Night
In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow: Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love. But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it's my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling. Or so I thought until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger-it's not just her name, it's how she lives her life. She doesn't trust me at all. And who could blame her? She alone knows that I'm here to be judge, jury and most likely executioner of her friends. Yet she is my key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die. Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead. But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I've ever loved?

In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around. But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her-even from her new and trusted friends-the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.

Néha egy-egy Sötét Vadász mégis azt hiszi, hogy ő a Törvény fölött áll. Ekkor jövök én. Hogy ki vagyok? Az, akitől még a rettenthetetlenek is félnek. Ha megszeged a törvényt, az én haragom sújt le rád. Az én szívemet nem lehet meglágyítani. Könyörtelen vagyok, nincsenek érzéseim. Legalábbis ezt hittem, amíg nem találkoztam egy Sötét Vadásznővel. A neve Danger. Veszély. Ez nem csupán a neve, hanem maga az élete. Nem bízik bennem, de nem hibáztathatom ezért. Egyedül ő tudja, miért jöttem: hogy bírája, esküdtszéke és valószínűleg hóhéra legyek a barátainak. Csak Danger segíthet, hogy néhányuk megmeneküljön. Nélküle mind meghalnak. Dangereuse St. Richard halálos őrület a számomra. Van benne valami, ami feléleszti rég halottnak hitt szívem. De a gonosz elleni harcban az emberiség egyetlen reménye, ha teljesítem a kötelességemet. Ám hogyan tehetném, ha ezzel fel kell áldoznom az egyetlen nőt, akit valaha szerettem?

A horrifying attack forces Alex to flee Miami and try to find her way back to the very place her mother had warned her she should never return—the Covenant.
