Darkness Awakened: Reimagined

Book 12: Order of the Blade

In this highly anticipated remake of the first book in the RITA® Award-winning Order of the Blade series, this stunningly sexy, action-packed paranormal romance between forced mates reveals the power of true love against the darkest evil, by New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Rowe.

Ajax Steele has fought against evil for centuries, a brutal life that commanded the ultimate sacrifice. When a dangerous enemy resurfaces, Ajax must sever ties with his team and go deep to stop him. His only chance? Team up with the alluringly sexy woman destined to kill him the moment they fall in love.

Cursed with a rare magic, Madison Locke has spent her life on the run from assassins, living in the shadows to conceal a terrible secret. But when her sister is kidnapped by a merciless hunter, Madison must emerge from hiding to save her. To succeed, she must recruit the help of a dangerously tempting warrior who awakens a burning hunger inside her that threatens them both.

A silken caress. A steaming kiss. Can the two fated enemies survive their deadly mate bond and save those they love?
