Read an excerpt from Transcending Darkness by Airicka Phoenix

One: Sign the contract.

Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil.

Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh.

Two: Become his for a year.

When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts of others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished.

But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both?

Three: Don’t fall in love.

Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever.


“I noticed John and Tyson are gone. Are they on holiday or…?”

He yanked open his drawer and stuffed the folders into them. He shut them in and rose to his feet.

“I fired them.”

There was a flicker of confusion on her face, a fine wrinkle between her brows. “Why?”

“Because they didn’t do their job,” he told her simply. “They didn’t watch you like they were supposed to so I have no need for them.”

Her mouth parted in a silent O of stunned silence that radiated the horror shining in her wide eyes.

“What?” She shook her head like by doing so, it would make the situation less true. “Why would you … that’s … it wasn’t their fault! I’m the one who got away from them. You can’t—”

“I can,” he interrupted sharply. “I pay them to do a specific job and that job is to make sure you are safe.”

“They were doing their job!” she cried, her eyes glistening with tears of anger. “It was my fault.”

“Five men in a secured house and they couldn’t keep an eye on you.” His voice vibrated with a sort of rage that scared even him. “How can I trust that they can keep you safe when you’re out? How can I trust that they will be efficient enough not to lose you in a crowded mall? Your safety was put into question and I won’t have that, not when the thought of something happening to you is the only thing that can break me. You’re my weakness, Juliette. You’re my Achilles’ heel, the key to bringing me down and I can’t lose you.
