Under-the-table motorcycle mechanic Sly Morgan has been running his whole life, from his parents’ past, and now, from the Legion drug dealers who murdered his family.
When the Ruler’s daughter finds him, she plunges her father’s dagger into Sly’s heart. The antigen within grants Sly a name and a purpose but enslaves him to the Legion, a ritualized underworld hidden in modern day Chicago.
His only salvation is Gracious, a Claimed woman driven by strength and compassion, bound to her own web of deceit and forced servitude.
Protecting the secret locked inside him allows Sly a shot at a future, but spurs the Rulers of the Legions toward war. His allegiance could unleash peace or seal his and Gracious’s Second Deaths.
Coming This Winter
Bound, as a Sovereign Shield, to Slice, the youngest of the three rulers, Grim fights to regain the man he lost to the Legions.
Sensual, recently Claimed and ordered to a penance as Service for hiding a young woman and a ruler’s stolen dagger, she refuses to devalue her life and accept her new fate.
Trapped in Slice’s war against his brothers and the ticking clock of the Ceremony, Grim risks his safeguards and his heart to gain Sensual’s trust. A vulnerability he can’t afford and a belief that could defy her.
The code of the Shields is their only salvation. A code the three brothers battle to destroy.
