The hot guy? Jude Delacroix—Dominus Daemonum, Master of Demons. Now her guardian, whether she likes it or not.
But she’s seriously beginning to like it.
The dude choking her? One of many demons from the underworld trying to abduct or kill Genevieve. As the prime target of the demon prince, Danté, she has no problem accepting Jude’s protection.
Why Genevieve? She’s a Vessel, one born to serve the Light but can be corrupted and used as a weapon for darkness. She had no idea this world even existed. Now, she just wants to survive it.
Forged in Fire by Juliette Cross (The Vessel Trilogy, #1)
Of course Genevieve expected her twentieth birthday in New Orleans to be a little crazy, after all she was with her best friend, Mindy! She wasn’t expecting this birthday to change her life, or what she thought was her life, nor did she expect someone to attempt to end said life. Enter Mr. Mysterious, Hot and Deadly to come to her rescue and lead her down the rabbit hole of Holy Crap revelations…Demons? A Demon Prince? And what exactly is a Vessel and how did Genevieve become one?
Jude Delacroix has the answers, but is Genevieve ready to listen and learn when just being in this guy’s presence sends her libido into overdrive just when she learns she must be untouched, and pure of soul, sometimes life isn’t fair, but demons don’t play by any rules and Dante will stop at nothing to possess her, body and soul. All she has to do is earn one black mark on that pearly white soul and she is toast…unless Jude can keep the minions of hell at bay.
Juliette Cross’ FORGED IN FIRE is more than a great start to another Cross series, it is a fabulous start! Be prepared to jump in with both feet, feel the flames of more than just Hell, because there is some heavy smoldering going on between Jude and Genevieve and it is electric! But, there are secret pains, failures and the need for self-redemption, as well as “the rules” that Jude must follow and more than once he will leave Genevieve dazed and panting for more.
Great attitude, great characters, great pacing and what a storyline! Juliette Cross and her magic pen once again writes us into a world of darkness, danger and passion. Safe to say, none of us had such a life-changing twentieth, but thanks to Juliette Cross, Genevieve did and we got to share it all!
