This book is intended for Mature Audiences Only!
There’s a LOT of F-bombs and other swear words. Very intense sexual situations (some Pegging, Mild CBT, and first time MM anal sex with a demon and his tail.)

Artisyn and Theodore’s relationship has always been a tumultuous one. Even up until his untimely demise. You’ve already experienced the aftermath, but do you ever wonder what happened to put them at such odds with one another?

After one very intense encounter, Theodore is completely smitten by the woman whom he had met at a bar one night. He doesn’t know her name, and after searching weeks to find her again to no avail, and he is about to give up. As luck would have it, she finally turns up, but it is in the last place he would’ve ever expected to find her.

Artisyn agrees to help her longtime friend Nikolai Gribkov, the captain of the southeastern division of the Paranormal Investigative Taskforce, with some missions that require her brand of “Depraved Finesse”. As expected she has to prove herself to the men of the division. What she didn’t expect is to run into the vampire playmate that she had a one night stand with weeks ago.

Start at the beginning of the journey and find out what really happened in the chain of events that led up to Artisyn being Indebted to Theodore.

***Cassandra – #NerdGirlLola’s  Review***
This is Prequel/ Sequel to Indebted: A Sin from Ashes. This is not a stand alone and must be read in order.

So right off the bat I have a small problem with this. As you may have read in the synopsis it states that this book is about the events that led up to Indebted. What the synopsis doesn’t tell you is that at some point in the book it is going to switch to present day and pick up right where the last book left off. At that point I was slightly confused but quickly figured out what was going on.

So for the prequel part of the book it was quite eye opening seeing just how obsessed Theodore was with Artisyn. This book really did nothing to quell my loathing of Theodore; in fact it may have made me hate him even more. Knowing the events that happened prior to the first book really just completed the story for me and cleared up a few questions I had.

As for the sequel part of the book, HOLY SMOKES!!!!! My mind was completely blown. Let’s just say things didn’t happen the way I thought they would. Which is good because I hate predictability in books, it takes all the fun out of it if I can figure out whats going to happen. I will say that this book left me with more questions than answers. I can’t wait to find out what happens next..

I highly recommend this book to anyone over 18. Great writing, excellent story, and compelling characters.
