Dimitri Tasarov has never had a choice in what he was. From infancy, he had been raised with the knowledge that he was a monster, an unlovable creature without a soul, until a single act of kindness threw his entire world into a tailspin.
Ava Emerson had always led a reluctantly sheltered existence. Friendship was a luxury that came with questions she couldn’t afford to answer.
They were an unlikely pair. He lived behind his mask and his roses, and she lived behind her secrets, yet they shared a bond that could get them killed if anyone ever found out.
Times were changing. The city was in turmoil. The weak were unprotected and someone needed to make a stand. But Dimitri wasn’t the only one with eyes on the north, or Ava, and they will stop at nothing to claim them both.
Can Dimitri keep Ava safe, or will the devil fall?
“She not here.” He faced the men hovering by the door. “Are you sure this is it?”
Carlos nodded. “These are the girls from this shipment.”
“She’s not here,” he repeated, desperation tangled with a building panic he couldn’t bottle back.
He could feel his heart thumping, could hear his blood roaring between his ears. He wanted to scream, to punch a hole in the wall, to do something, anything rather than stand there useless. But that was all he could do. This had been his final hope. The last place she could have been. All he could think was, maybe John Paul or Jarvis will get her. Simultaneously, he couldn’t stop the secondary voice prodding back with, what if they don’t?
“Where are the private sales?”
Hector shook his head. “There are none.”
“There has to be!” He was beginning to lose his temper. He could feel himself losing his grip on his sanity. “She was on that boat. She has to be here.”
“We have checked everywhere she would be,” Hector said with a gentleness Dimitri knew he wasn’t accustomed to.
“Take me to the booking house.” He straightened, filled with a new purpose. “I want to talk to the guy who selects the girls.”
