Full Blurb

He lost his fated mate and he'll stop at nothing to get her back.

Luke became obsessed with Johanna the moment he saw her. It wasn't just her beauty, it was the essence of her, the way she smiled, the way she laughed. But no matter how much he wanted to claim her, the mate bond never snapped into place—until the day his enemy dragged her away.

As a plus-size witch, Johanna has spent her life as an outcast. All she's ever wanted was to feel loved, to belong. Finding her fated mate should have been the miracle she'd always hoped for—instead it was the start of her destruction.

Captured and tortured, Johanna has been forced to betray Luke in unspeakable ways to protect him, leaving her nothing more than a scarred and broken shell of herself.

Luke will risk everything to save her from their enemies. But even if he does, can he save Johanna from herself?

Chapter One Look Inside

The day of the battle

Something called to Luke, playing with the fringes of his mind, teasing him with answers to questions he’d never dared to speak out loud. But he needed those answers desperately. He needed them to help make sense of everything he’d felt over the last few months, and they were worth everything, even Greg’s wrath. 

Luke ran away from the group, ignoring Greg’s shout. He followed the call as it pulled him further down the passage. It turned, narrowed, and then opened to a full room. The moment Luke entered, he was forced to duck, missing a punch aimed at his head.

“You weren’t who I was hoping for.” Zachariah smirked, his brown eyes gleaming. “But you’ll do.” 

Luke rushed him. He landed a punch to Zachariah’s face and another to his gut before jumping back in time to miss Zachariah’s counterattack. Ducking under a kick, Luke delivered a punch to the underside of Zachariah’s knee, satisfied when the bone splintered.

It wasn’t enough.

Zachariah caught him with an elbow to the chest. He kneed Luke in his ribs before punching the side of his head. When Zachariah’s kick connected, Luke flew back, rolling until he hit the cavern wall. 

Luke stood slowly, faking weakness. The healing agent in his blood was already working through his system and renewing his strength, but he needed to be smart about this. Zachariah’s enhanced strength would make him difficult to take down directly, and there was still speculation that Zachariah could copy another immortal’s ability. Without knowing how that ability worked, being impulsive could land Luke in a very dangerous situation.

And then there was Johanna. She stood in the middle of the room, her face blank, emotionless. She was still under Zachariah’s control. Luke had strategically pulled Zachariah away from Johanna during the fight, but he was still too close to her. Luke knew that if pushed, Zachariah would use Johanna as a hostage, and Luke would never risk her life. The best strategy was to tire Zachariah out without using his abilities. If Luke made him believe that he was weaker, Zachariah would grow cocky, ensuring Luke’s victory.

As Luke went to step forward, his body froze. An unseen pressure knocked him to his knees. He struggled against it, but the bone-crushing weight held him down, pushing his stomach flat against the dirt. 

“Luke?” a soft voice whispered in his head. 

His eyes darted around the room, but no one else had entered. Zachariah stood unmoving, entirely too still, and Luke wondered if he felt the same pressure. Luke’s eyes darted to Johanna. While she hadn’t moved, something seemed different about her—electric.

Confused, he responded mentally, “Johanna?”

“Good.” Her sigh of relief flitted through him. “You can hear me.”

“How are you doing this? What are you—”

“That doesn’t matter now. Please, stay down and lie still. Don’t fight me.”

Something akin to panic squeezed at his chest. Was it hers or was it his? “Johanna, whatever this is, stop it. Let me go.”

“No!” The force of her shout was so strong it made his ears ring. “You don’t understand. You can’t kill him!”

“Yes, I can!” Luke tried to will his body to move but it wasn’t responding to him.

“No, you can’t!” Johanna’s voice softened. “Please, stop. Zachariah isn’t the leader you’ve believed him to be. It’s someone else, and she is far more powerful than you or I. If you kill him, she will come after you, and she won’t stop until she breaks you. I don’t … I don’t want to see you hurt. I don’t want anyone to ever experience that again. Now please, stop—”


“We don’t have any more time! You’ll be able to move when I’m gone. As soon as you can, take the passage to the left. It’ll lead you outside.”

Zachariah suddenly twitched and shook his head, as if coming out of a daze. He stared down at Luke and then tsked. “I thought he would have lasted longer. Oh well.” He turned toward Johanna. “Since he left me so unsatisfied, you’ll have to make up for it. Now, let’s go.” Zachariah grabbed her by the arm and dragged her behind him.

Johanna followed him meekly, but Luke heard her quiet sob in his mind, and recognition pierced his heart. He fought against the pressure holding him down like a wild man. 

Move! Move damn it! Move! he urged himself. 

“I’m sorry,” she hiccuped. “At least you’ll be safe. Goodbye, Luke.” 

“Johanna!” he screamed, fighting against her power until she disappeared around a corridor. 

And just like that, she was gone.

* * *

Luke was still screaming when he woke up. 

Every night for the last two months Luke had awoken drenched in sweat, his mouth open, screaming at the horrible memory. It never changed, never stopped, never got better, never distorted. It was always the same. It was the day he finally got the answer to one of his questions, the moment he realized Johanna was his mate.

The four walls of his bedroom felt like they were closing in, and the air was too hot, too humid to breathe. He kicked off the covers and goosebumps raced over his skin as a brush of cool air flitted over him. He was the problem—not this room, not this house, not anything else. He was the one who was broken, the one who had failed. 

He’d failed Johanna. Occasionally, Luke would relive his nightmare as a specter. His corporal form would float just above the unfolding scene, and in those moments he’d revisit everything. If he had taken more risks instead of being concerned about Zachariah stealing his power, if he had moved closer to Johanna instead of away, would she have felt safe enough to reach out to him then? Would she be in his arms right now? 

Those weren’t the only times he should have fought harder for her. Luke would give anything to go back to the times he’d tried to speak to Johanna at work and she’d run away from him. If he had followed her, pressed her to explain why she kept avoiding him, would she be here right now? If nothing else, he would have finally known why she was able to combat the connection between them, the mate bond that had finally snapped into place in that cavern. 

Luke would even have been at peace if she had outright rejected him. It would have devastated and destroyed him, but this? Not knowing if she was even … He couldn’t go there, not again, because if she wasn’t alive, he’d lose it. He’d lose every single piece of himself and spend the last remaining minutes of his life killing Zachariah and anyone else he could get his hands on before they took him down.

The only thing that gave him hope was that after being on the receiving end of Johanna’s powers, he knew Zachariah would never give her up easily. She was extraordinarily powerful. A feeling of pride for his mate flashed through his heart before it was crushed under the heavy weight of despair. If it weren’t for those powers, would she even be in that position? 

No, she’d be dead.

That thought had him reaching out before his arm froze in mid-air, shaking so badly with the need to hurt, to break, to destroy with his rage. Luke took a deep breath, then another, and another, trying to settle his mind.

The simple fact was that if Johanna wasn’t powerful and Zachariah discovered she was Luke’s mate, he would have killed her, much like he had tried to kill Daniella. At least this way Johanna was alive, and Luke was sure she would stay that way.

But that still didn’t answer how Johanna had hidden their mate bond, and Luke was sure she had. Even if she were able to hide it from everyone else, he should have been able to feel it immediately. And why was it that he finally felt their mate bond in that cavern when she had seemed so … different? So real? When her voice seemed softer yet stronger than he had ever heard it, and she had become so determined, so protective over him? Why then and not before?

Luke rested his head back against the headboard and ran a shaky hand through his brown hair, swiping the stuck strands from his forehead. No matter how hard he tried to figure it out, he couldn’t. Every time one mystery resolved itself, another one unfurled. It was endless, and it would stay that way until he found her—and he would find her. But rage still barred its fangs and tore at him, peeling back more and more layers until it reached his soul and covered it in something dark and sadistic. 

Luke sighed. He couldn't keep doing this. He couldn’t keep being this way. It wouldn’t be good for the battle tonight, yet another attempt at finding her. 

You’ll find her. You’ll find her, he chanted in his head, hoping that thinking the words would somehow make them come true. 

Luke needed to move, to do something to keep his mind busy. Checking his phone, he saw he’d only slept for two hours and had another two before he’d have to drive to Greg and Daniella’s home for the strategy meeting. He cracked his knuckles and left his room, heading toward his gym where he beat and kicked the punching bag, unleashing a fraction of his wrath until the bag itself exploded. But even then he didn’t stop, not until he’d ripped it to shreds.

“Yes, sunflower?”

She licked her lips and his gaze flickered there, capturing the motion before returning to her eyes. 

“Back at the bar, you … you called me your wife.”

He smiled and answered unashamed, “I did.”

Her breathing hitched in her throat, making his grin grow. 

“B-but that means things,” she murmured.

“Things?” he said, teasing her. “What things?”

She narrowed her eyes and smacked his arm. “You know what things. Love. Marriage.”

“It does? I had no idea.”

“Luke!” she said, exasperated, but it only made him laugh harder. 

He bent down, his face level with hers, and whispered, “Is there something you’re trying to ask me, sunflower?”

She bit her lip and her gaze heated before it slid away from his. He brought it back with a gentle squeeze of her chin. 

“I called you my wife because that’s how I think of you. You are my mate, the other half of my soul. You delight me, you drive me crazy, and I know now that the reason fate made me immortal was to meet you. I may have called you that word in the heat of the moment, but that’s because it’s how I feel. My intentions are to marry you one day, my vicious little sunflower, and if you’re asking my feelings for you, well…” He smirked. “Yes, I love you.”

She gasped, her eyes growing wide at the confession, but it was him who was shocked when her mouth, seconds before in a perfect little “O”, pressed against his.

Luke had imagined kissing Johanna more times than he could count. He fantasized about how soft and warm her lips would be, how delicious she would taste, the soft noise she would make when he parted her lips with his tongue. He craved the way she’d sigh into his arms and moan in her pleasure. What he had never imagined, though, was that she would kiss him first.

This series is so addictive. You will want to sit still and read all three books at once. I love Luke and Joanna’s relationship. The way they work so well together but yet again I guess that helps with being fated mates. Their journey together so far is so healing. I love how much of a badbutt Joanna is. She is so awesome. I love Melissa Cummins books. She is such a great writer. I cannot wait to continue the series and read book three.

I liked this PNR storyline with danger, drama, rescues, healing, chemistry, and love. The MCs are defined, strong, determined, empathic, and love deeply. I found this book entertaining and enjoyable.

Five stars does not do this book justice. You have a little bit of steamy, witty, and plenty of emotions. A book you definitely want to read, it’s a great series.
