This will be Gabriel's book - I've waited a long time to share his story and I can't wait! His book will also be the second to last within the Rulers of Darkness series. There are so many things to consider and to wrap up, but I'm having a lot of fun!(less)

Caressed by the Edge of Darkness Prologue (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 26, 2017 10:56AM
Description: Caressed by the Edge of Darkness (Rulers of Darkness #5) has been a long time in the making. It didn’t help that I decided to rewrite the majority of the book once I was in the initial editing phase. Gabriel is a complex character and I wanted to tell his story the best I could. I apologize for the delay in its release and hate that I’ve kept so many readers waiting. I can only hope the book lives up to your expectations. I greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. Please, bear with me and enjoy the first part of Caressed by the Edge of Darkness.

“He explained to me that the reason he put his hand over
my heart,” he pressed his palm to his chest, “was to keep my soul

from God.” He sucked in a painfully sharp breath. “I've never told
anyone that.”

Prologue

Lithuania, 1237


The rancid stench of chard flesh thickened the stale dungeon air. Blood slickened the cold stone floor. A faint heart beat and the rasp of shallow breaths whispered through the darkness. There were no whimpering sighs or screams for help. The word mercy had no meaning in a Hell such as this.
Hate, so pure, so true, so strong, it electrified the air, snapping and sizzling like lightning.
Chains scrapped the ground, sloshed through puddles of blood.
Crimson rivulets snaked down the slave’s bare chest, back, and arms. Droplets of blood elegantly cascaded from his fingertips. Welts scored his torso, long slashes crossed over his shoulders. His skin still smoldered, tendrils of heat danced as his flesh continued to blacken.
The slave remained on his knees, his shoulders squared, his head never bowing. His chest slowly rose and fell as he met the blond stranger’s gaze. There was no fear or hope in the slave’s stare, but determination hardened his crystal green eyes and he tilted his chin up in challenge.
Impressive. Most would have crumbled from such a torture session, but the slave had endured centuries of pain and continued to be strong, rebellious.
“Your defiance…” the blond vampire whispered in awe, “Remarkable.”
The slave’s cracked and bleeding lips pealed back, revealing his fangs. They glistened in the darkness as he slowly stretched his dislocated jaw until it popped back into place.
The blond male stepped closer to the cell. Extending an arm through the bars, he held out his hand and said, “I am Dimitri Arsov.”
Ignoring the stranger, the slave lumbered to his feet. His chains rattled and rasped against the bloody, raw flesh of his wrists. His bones ached and every muscle in his body screamed in protest as he straightened, tearing his newly healed skin. More blood flowed. He didn’t notice. Didn’t care.
