Immortal Duty (Immortals Series, Book 1)
Walking home from a late-night shift at the hospital, Amy Bennett unwittingly stumbles into the violent, mysterious world of sexy Rhys Morgan. She wants him at once, but he’s a man with dangerous secrets, and despite the explosive attraction between them he seems determined to push her away.
One of the oldest of his kind, the intense Immortal warrior Rhys spends his nights on the streets of Chandler protecting the city from the demons that threaten to overrun it. He’s always been strong, but now he has a weakness…Amy.
His gift of premonition has always been more of a curse, and especially since Amy’s death has been haunting his dreams. But she’s part of his world now, and he doesn’t know how to save her, or how to protect his heart.
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously published elsewhere as My Immortal.
Amy groaned softly, not wanting to look at his face. If she did, she’d have to admit the things he was making her feel. Crazy things. Hot things. Things no sane person would let herself feel for a man who had abducted her.
He kept up the gentle pressure and she finally looked up. His eyes were so bright they seemed to glow like silver fire. They delved inside her as if to seek out her most closely held secrets and desires.
She tossed her head aside as she tried to avoid the intimate pull of energy back and forth between them. “How do you know my name?” Amy asked, clearing her throat, “And what am I supposed to call you?”
“Whatever you like.” He shrugged.
“Really.” She snorted. “Okay then…Cupcake.”
He deep, rumbling laugh caught her off guard. It made him seem infinitely more human. “I guess you can just call me Rhys.”
Those strange silver eyes were compelling. They locked her to him, and she didn’t have the power to pull away. She tried to speak, but couldn’t get the words past her lips, tried to say something that would bring them both back to reality, but she couldn’t make it happen. Her teeth clenched together and she tried desperately to stop her traitorous body from swooning with lust.
Then he kissed her, and there was no doubt that she was in trouble.
