Maccus Fury fell from heaven, lost his wings and turned assassin. After leaving heaven and spending too long in hell, Maccus feels nothing. Until Morrigan Quill, renowned Hell's bounty hunter, is sent to take him down. Funny all that Archangel Gabriel and Lucifer managed to do was to cause his formidable FURY UNLEASHED or is that their plan all along? The surprise is definitely on them as things turn out completely unexpectedly. A Fallen Angel contracted to kill a Demon Hunter and a Demon Hunter who is ordered to kill a fallen angel, three guesses on how that works out? It works out as an amazingly steamy, action-packed read as only author N.J. Walters can give her readers.
Morrigan Quill sold her soul to the devil to keep her younger sister safe. Lucifer turned her into his bounty hunter, after years of torture in hell. Now he wants her to kill a fallen angel and will call the contract null and void if she does it. If not she is going back to hell forever. What choice does she have? Not that she expects to survive this assignment, but it is worth a try.
There are several twists and turns that make this a fun read and Maccus is perfect for readers who love their hero tortured. He is also a survivor who doesn't like to be screwed with, and though he realizes that Morrigan is something more than even she understands, he wonders why she was sent ... a mortal ... to kill him. Something that would be laughable if his heart wasn't starting to belong to her. They really do make a perfect couple. A few home truths come out about Morrigan's background and what really happened the night she was sent to hell. Maccus opens his heart, and when he is given the choice of protecting her even beyond life or destroying everything in sight. What choice does he have?
A tortured lost soul, a woman who loves (maybe not wisely but strongly), action, drama, a steamy can't catch your breath yet surprising sweet romance with many surprising twists is FURY UNLEASHED. A book you will not be able to put down.
Maccus Fury, a fallen angel, is trying hard to keep his sanity. Seems being an assassin might be catching up with him. Now, Heaven, or Hell, has sent a beautiful assassin to kill him. Lovely. She’s pretending to seduce him, and he’s okay with that. She’s smart and snarky—but she has no idea what she’s walked into. And he’s more than peeved that they only sent one person. They’re going to need an army if they want him dead.
Morrigan Quill is one of Hell’s bounty hunters. She sold her soul to keep her sister safe, and now she’s working off her contract by catching bad guys and dragging them back to hell. When Lucifer makes her a new offer––that’s definitely too good to be true—she can’t say no. All she has to do is kill a powerful and crazy-hot fallen angel, who will totally kick her ass in battle.
Good thing he won’t see what’s coming next.
Maccus was almost seven feet of muscle and menace. The only thing soft about him was his silky black hair. In person, his features were even more rugged. And his eyes seemed to hold all the secrets of the universe, all the pain.
Black pants clung to his powerful thighs. A black tank top stretched across his massive chest beneath a light leather jacket. They were dressed in an almost identical manner, blending seamlessly with the night.
He woke long forgotten yearnings from back when she’d been nothing more than an unsuspecting human living her ordinary life.
He made her remember who she’d been, not what she’d become.
Primal instincts urged her to run.
Softness was not something she could afford. Not with her life and that of her sister hanging in the balance. Until she’d fulfilled her contract and paid the debt in full, Lucifer was within his rights to grab her sister. And there was nothing she wouldn’t do to keep Kayley safe.
That was her objective. She couldn’t forget it for one second. “Where are we going?” Now that they were no longer in hearing range of the cops, she was done blindly following him.
When he didn’t answer, she reached out and grabbed his arm, intending to stop him. Her fingers barely had a chance to graze him when iron-hard fingers caught her wrist in an unbreakable hold. He wasn’t hurting her, but she couldn’t get away from him, either. His grip was as binding as the cuffs she’d slapped on Clem earlier.
“You shouldn’t touch me.”
Morrigan snorted. “We were sure as hell touching a few minutes ago.” Her heart beat fast, her skin tingled. His lips had been warm and firm. He tasted like coffee with a hint of some exotic spice. Mixed with the natural taste of hot, sexy male, it was downright addictive. No matter what else the man might have done, he sure knew how to kiss.
One corner of his stern mouth twitched, but he didn’t smile, didn’t even come close. His features hardened.
The sound of vehicles, sirens, and people’s voices filtered down the secluded alleyway. They were alone. No rats scurried about; no vagrants searched for a place to sleep or dug through the dumpster for food.
The heat from his hand seeped into her skin. His breathing deepened along with hers. Sexual awareness and fear grew side by side. Her gun and sword were unreachable with him holding her. The knife tucked at the small of her back was closer, but she didn’t reach for it.
She slowly raised her arm and looked pointedly at where he held her. He released her one finger at a time. Her skin cooled, but she refrained from rubbing it. Best not to let him know his touch affected her.
“Where are we going?” she asked again. She wasn’t some docile lamb to be led to the slaughter.
“My place.” His deep voice stroked her senses. “Unless you’d rather go to yours?”
Her entire body hummed with sexual need unlike anything she’d ever encountered. Static electricity seemed to snap in the air. Her skin tingled.
Being with Maccus was like riding a rollercoaster—frightening and exhilarating. She was scared to death but ready and willing to ride to the very end.
And since she needed to know where he lived or at least where he was staying… “Your place is fine.”
Dangerous undercurrents swirled under their every word and action. It was too bad she wasn’t an ordinary woman hooking up with a hot guy for a night of fantastic, mind-blowing sex.
Maccus is a deadly killer on Lucifer’s hit list.
