Jaxon never wanted to tie himself to a single woman, not even when he was mortal. When a sexy temptress collides with him on the street, dumping her coffee all over his chest, he sees the opportunity for another installment of his modus operandi—seduce, bed then leave. But this fiery woman sees through his attempts and refuses to be just another notch on his bedpost.
Chyna is prepared to walk away when it becomes clear Jaxon plans to hit it and leave. She has a plan of her own and knows seduction is a two-way street. Once she gets him in bed, he won’t want to leave. But she gets more than she bargained for when her lover shows his furry side and reveals his true nature—as a shifter and warrior to an ancient Egyptian god. She must then decide if she’s brave enough to stay…or if she will be the one to walk away.
All these years of fighting evil and enjoying the single lifestyle, Jaxon has had his share of fun, never wanting more from a woman than one night. Yet when Jaxon meets Chyna, all his past fears and feelings seem to melt away. One chance meeting and theirs lives are changed forever. Jaxon finds himself wanting so much more, but when a demon enters the picture all may be lost before Jaxon even has a chance to try.
I enjoyed this latest visit to the world of Anubis’s warrior’s. Once again the author brings her warriors and their world vividly to life. I enjoy seeing each new warrior and their mate defeat their demon in this series and Jaxon and Chyna do not disappoint. They must find a way to defeat the demon before his revenge can be exacted. The two make a wonderful couple. Chyna is one strong woman who knows just what she wants and will not take any crap. Jaxon is a good man with a big heart. Jaxon finds so much more than fun with Chyna and when he's faced with loosing her he fights with all his might to keep her.
Watching Jaxon find himself and come to terms with his feelings made for a good read. The bond and the love that builds between the two was a wonderful thing to see. Fast paced and filled with emotions this book is a great installment in this series and has me eagerly waiting to meet the new warrior and his mate.
