Darkly Ever After Series
Desparion. The place where they put men with an inner monster.
A place no sensible citizen goes unless they’re seeking a dark, unrestrained kind of thrill.
Only I love my little sister. It’s her birthday, and despite being the sensible, dependable, boring one, I end up in the alpha zone surrounded by the kind of men only mentioned in hushed whispers with a sneer of distaste.
That’s when I met him.
Nearly seven feet tall, all muscle and a devilish smile that promises a night of pleasure. I can do this. I can escape the drudgery for a night, enjoy the wild side, then slink back to my small sensible life.
But his touch does more than light a fire inside me, it reveals a part of me I didn’t know existed.
Every monster has a match. A female who is weak and yet strong. One who responds to pheromones and is driven by instincts every bit as beastly as the monster inside me.
Those women should be protected, not touched. After what I saw my sister go through, I kept my animal side on a tight leash.
Then I saw her, the cute little citizen taking a walk on the wild side.
But fate has other plans, and she’s not the ordinary I expected.
Mine, the beast inside me says.
I want to protect her.
I want to ruin her for everyone but me.
And I can’t have it both ways.
But if I want to save her, I might not have a choice.
Desparion—the place where they put men with an inner monster.
A place no sensible beta goes unless they’re seeking a dark, unrestrained kind of thrill.
That’s me. The thrill-seeker. Well, not usually, but it’s my birthday, and I’m making an exception.
Only, I think I might have taken on more than I can handle…
Ryder—no other comes close to his level of raw masculine appeal. All the smoldering good looks that a girl expects from an alpha, along with a brooding stillness that makes me shiver from the other side of the room like he sees things beyond the understanding of us mere mortals.
What did I do about it?
I propositioned him. Told him it was my birthday and I’d like him as my present.
I just wanted to take a big bite out of all that hotness. And that was when I discovered that alphas bite back.
Ryder is book two in the Her Monster series, an extra spicy m/f dystopian omegaverse romance.
