Surrender to Darkness

Eternally Mated #5

By Valerie Twombly

Sometimes the only choice you have is to surrender.

Cade is a fallen angel who still endeavors to follow the right path. That is until the angels’ new ruling body decide the warrior is the perfect match to carry out their new assignment. Schooling the young, snobbish Abagail in the art of demon fighting is a challenge he could do without.

When Abagail is summoned by the Tribunal, she is beyond eager to finally take her place among the angels. She already has her eye on an elite warrior for her mate. But when the nephilim is thrust into a mission with a fallen angel, she goes from thrilled to mortified.

Like oil and water, the two are constantly at odds with each other, but Cade can’t deny the attraction building for the aloof nephilim. As their mission draws to a close, Cade realizes Abby will walk out of his life and into the arms of another, unless he can convince her to surrender to one night of passion.

Cade stared at Abby with what he was sure was disbelief on his face. “ You’re seriously not wearing that, are you?” She had on a dress that bared more of her legs than it covered and had thin, little straps that tied at her shoulders. He moved his gaze to her feet, which were clad with sandals. Flat, but sandals nonetheless. Apparently, he should have informed her at last night’s session on how to dress.

“What’s wrong with my clothes? I found them in my closet. Besides…” She gave a shrug. “I think the dress is pretty.”

He wouldn’t dispute that her well-toned legs were a nice sight. Her skin, kissed by the sun, had a healthy glow, and her hair was pulled back into a ponytail. Wisps rebelled, curling down her neck and face. Cade picked up a blade and twirled it to keep from freeing the mass and running his fingers through it, to see if it was as thick and silky as it looked.

“You can’t fight like that.” Though he wouldn’t mind seeing her give a high kick. Might even take one in the groin himself just to see if she wore panties. “On second thought, dress however you wish.”

She flashed a smile that spoke of how pleased she was to have won this battle. He could hardly wait to see the look she gave him later when he made her actually battle in that getup.
