Title: Transcending Darkness
Author: Airicka Phoenix
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
One: Sign the contract.
Juliette Romero had a debt to pay, a debt that wasn’t even hers. But it was the only way to keep her family safe and all she had to do was sell her body and soul to the devil.
Killian McClary wasn’t called the Scarlet Wolf for nothing. He’d been the head of the McClary Organization since he was fifteen and had built a reputation for being a ruthless son of a bitch when it came to running the city’s underbelly, not to mention merciless when it came to punishing those who betray him. He didn’t believe in weaknesses. Only results. Juliette, with her shy smiles and hot little body was a weakness unlike any other and yet he was powerless to resist one more taste of her sweet flesh.
Two: Become his for a year.
When given the choice between her life or her body, what could Juliette possibly do, but submit to a man whose very name invoked fear in the hearts of others? She just never anticipated falling for his dark, hungry eyes and clever hands, or the way the beast in him made her feel oddly safe and cherished.
But what will happen when Killian’s dark past finally catches up to him and threatens the woman he can no longer imagine himself without? What will happen when both sides find themselves caught in a web of passion, lies and broken promises? Can Juliette tame the wolf or will her love for him devour them both?
Three: Don’t fall in love.
Boundaries will be crossed, loyalties will be tested and lives will be changed forever.

Nervous for reasons unknown, she was less excited about her final reveal. Not that she didn’t think Killian would like the dress. It was only a dress after all. But it was the other thing, the surprise that made her palms sweat.
“Okay!” she called out before reaching for the doorknob. “I’m coming out.”
Knees wobbling, she stepped out into the bedroom and paused. Killian took her in, everything from her feet all the way up to the top of her head. His expression gave nothing away and that only intensified the anxiety clawing its way up into her throat.
“What do you think?” she asked, nervously.
“Sexy,” he said. “The body hugging material suits you.”
Her hands trembled as she ran them down the front of the dress. “Thanks. I really like this one.” She licked her lips. “Can … can you help me with the zipper? I can always get it up, but never down.”
Praying to God she didn’t stumble, or worse, face plant, she made her way towards him slowly on shaky legs. She scooped her hair up and over one shoulder. Her heart hammered in her chest as he rose and met her halfway. She turned, offering him the zipper running down her back. Her entire body seemed to vibrate with pent up anticipation. Her skin tingled all over. She held her breath and waited.
The first brush of his fingers along the nape of her neck nearly sent her clean out of her skin. She gave a violent jolt she hoped he hadn’t noticed. If he did, he never let on as he caught the tongue and rolled the zipper downward. The fabric gave inch by inch until the sleeves slipped down her arms. Juliette let the whole thing ripple to the ground in a puddle of black fabric. She stepped free and turned slowly to face the man behind her.
Her eyes locked with his.
“I also bought this,” she whispered, brushing a hand over the lacy scrap of fabric hugging her hips.
It matched the gel filled cups plumping up her breasts to firm, sexy globes. Both had cost her more than the dress and the shoes, but the look on Killian’s face … oh the look was worth every penny. It was raw lust in its truest form. It was feral and dangerous and she was in the center of all of it. It was enough to make a girl orgasm.
“Do you like it?” She reached for the first button on his dress shirt, her eyes never leaving his. “I thought of you when I picked it out.”
The second button gave as easily as the first. Then the third and fourth.
