Hex and his six demon warriors escaped the depths of Tartarus under Hades's watchful eye to live among the mortals in the Top World. The Oracle has prophesized an epic battle to come—a war between good and evil that will test the warriors as never before.

When Echo arrives on their doorstep, cold, naked, and hungry, they immediately realize he is their mate, and the prophesized “heart” that beats between them. Echo may be the ultimate weapon in the war, but he’s also a spitfire, and he instantly turns their world upside down.

If fighting an angry god weren’t enough, the warriors learn Echo has escaped from a secret lab hidden away in the mountains, and it isn’t long before trouble comes looking for them. Can the demons keep their new mate safe when it seems the entire world—and the Underworld—is against them?

Story Excerpt

They gathered in a large circle, each watching the Oracle intently. Her silver-blonde hair cascaded down around her, brushing softly against her ankles as she tilted her head back and stretched her arms wide. A ring of fire erupted around them, the flames reaching toward the skies to form a cocoon of fiery heat.

Casting a look about the circle, Hex met each man’s eyes, holding their gaze for just a moment before moving on to the next. Only twice before had they shared their dreams, and never did the act bring good tidings.

“The gates of Tartarus will burst open wide, releasing its evil upon the world,” the Oracle began speaking in her robotic monotone. “Those who have escaped the flames must stand together and fight or return to the bowels of whence they crawled.”

Closing his eyes, Hex felt the heat wash over him, a reminder of the prison from which he and his lovers had escaped. Two thousand years had passed, and still he remembered the treacherous journey across the river Acheron as though it were yesterday.

Nothing could make him return to the Underworld.

“Each gift must be united, sealed together in eternal bond. The heart that beats between you will be your salvation, bringing you together in ways you have never known.”

Now they were getting into the mystical riddles he hated so much. Why couldn’t the Oracle just give it to them straight?

“The Earth’s retreat marks the beginning. With the passing of each shadowed moon, a new wickedness shall be brought to those who dwell upon her soils. The waters shall run red with misery and woe. Hades’ fire will rain upon the land. The sky shall split open, screaming in its fury.”

Well, that all sounded just peachy. Hex scrubbed a hand over his face, his heart heavy with the task that lay before them.

“Crops will shrivel, and beasts shall scatter their worries. The sun will fall, and the moon will bleed.”

Okay, he didn’t even know what half of that meant. He just hoped he woke up soon.

“Your enemies shall seek out the heart, laying waste to the ones born of the first. Nurture and protect your sacred bond with your very lives.” Then the Oracle lifted her head, and though she didn’t look his way, still managed to pierce Hex with her gaze, right down to his hard-won soul. “The heart is coming with whispered echoes.”

Adult Excerpt

Hex and Myst worked together, quickly removing Echo’s pajama pants before Hex lifted him into his lap so that Echo’s back pressed against his chest. Myst moved to the floor between Hex’s legs, spreading Echo’s thighs so that his knees rested on the outside of Hex’s.

“How many times can you come, baby?” Hex whispered in his ear as his hand roamed over Echo’s chest.

Echo gulped audibly. “I–I don’t know.”

“Let’s go with four. Can you come four times for us?”

Echo didn’t know, but he’d sure as hell try. In answer, he lifted his arms over his head, tangling his fingers in Hex’s hair as he turned to pull the man into a devouring kiss. He heard the snick of a bottle cap, and then slick fingers found his hungry opening, caressing the fluttering muscles before one thick finger pushed inside.

Moaning into Hex’s mouth, Echo rocked against the digit, loving the slight burn and the fullness inside his ass. “More,” he mumbled around Hex’s lips.

Myst complied, slipping another finger into his eager hole, pumping in and out as he worked quickly to stretch him. “How much experience do you have?”

“I’m not a virgin,” Echo answered. That’s as far as he was willing to travel into the conversation just then.

Myst seemed to get it because he nodded once and pushed another finger into Echo’s ass, rising up on his knees to claim Echo’s mouth. Hex growled, his chest vibrating beneath Echo’s back. “Need you now.”

“Yes,” Echo breathed as Hex lifted him, lining up the head of his thick cock, then slowly lowered him over it. Echo breathed through the slight pinch of pain, relaxing his body until he was fully seated.

“Fuck,” Hex hissed. “Damn, you’re tight, baby.”

“Been a while,” Echo mumbled distractedly. Myst nibbled up the inside of his thigh as his long fingers massaged Echo’s tight sac.

Hex palmed his aching cock, stroking him firmly as his teeth grazed along the side of Echo’s neck. “Watch them, baby. See how beautiful they are together.” His other hand gripped Echo’s hip, encouraging him to rock back and forth on the huge prick buried inside his ass.

From the corner of his eye, he saw Syx and Vapre move to the floor to join the others, all five kissing, touching, licking, and biting.

Myst’s mouth replaced his fingers, and he laved and sucked at Echo’s balls, rolling them around in his mouth and moaning. Echo groaned and panted, the sensations overwhelming him as he watched the five men move together on the floor.

Fiero had Onyx on his knees, driving into him from behind as his fingers dug into the man’s hips. Syx kneeled in front of them, thrusting his cock into Onyx’s mouth as Eyce bent Vapre over the arm of the love seat and pounded into his hole with wild abandon.

Grunts, groans, growls, and moans filled the room, and Echo couldn’t hold back any longer. Hex was right. They were gorgeous together. He’d never seen anything so erotic in his life. Hex gave a hard thrust just as Myst wrapped his lips around Echo’s pulsing shaft, pushing his prick to the back of Myst’s throat.
