The same night Lady Katherine Blakely discovers just what a monster her husband is, she meets a charming stranger, a gentleman from top to toe, not a wolf in gallant evening dress as so many of them are. But even he is not all that he seems.
Lord George Draconis Thornton has returned from abroad as Earl of Melbourne. As the commander of the Dominus Daemonum, demon hunters set on earth to purge the world of creatures corrupting mankind, his mission is to expel the demon prince, Damas, back to the underworld before he corrupts his last remaining descendant. But a golden-haired beauty derails his plans. Determined to save her from an abusive marriage, he loses his way. And the price for his failure will be the greatest loss he has felt in all the centuries he has lived on earth.
The Deepest Well by Juliette Cross (Dominion, Prequel)
It wasn’t a marriage of love, but when Lady Katherine Blakely was shown proof positive that there wasn’t even any respect, Fate stepped in and introduced her to a charming stranger, a true gentleman. Even gentlemen have secrets, but were they as unbelievable as Lord George Draconis Thornton’s?
THE DEEPEST WELL by Juliette Cross is filled with the atmosphere of Gothic romance with a supernatural twist as one strong heroine will face the horrors of monsters because she fell in love with the right man for her. Little did she know his enemies would be dark, powerful and immortal.
George has secrets that go back thousands of years and enemies that will stop at nothing to destroy him, one way or the other. As the commander of the Dominus Daemonum, he has led his warriors against the powers of evil, of demons bent on destroying the goodness that is left in the world. Now one has found his revenge and it involves stealing Katherine, body, soul and mind. Will George be able to save her or will she be lost to him forever?
Once again, Juliette Cross proves her talent as an author able to cross genres and create a masterpiece of romance and emotional turmoil. Wonderful characters, a sweet romance in its first bloom and the dark stench of evil that has found a way to break hearts and crush spirits. Ms. Cross had me from page one! Intense, brilliantly executed: simply magnetic as I was glued to each page and each event that led to an incredible finish I never expected.
