Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance, Vamps & Shifters Romance
A vampire with a past stained with blood and a soul tainted with darkness, he is perfect in his self-control, never surrendering to his darkest desires. Now a beautiful witch in the shadowy fae underworld threatens to reawaken long denied hungers and tempts him with carnal pleasure.
Payne despises the incubus side of his mixed genes and refuses to give it free rein, but when the wickedly sexy Elissa offers him a possible way to help a friend, he finds it difficult to resist paying the price, even if it will be his undoing—one night of passion at her command.
Elissa is a witch down on her luck until Payne comes crashing into her life. The dangerously handsome male is the key to fulfilling a promise she made, but he is also forbidden, and surrendering to the wildfire passion he stirs within her means risking ruin and death.
When one incredible night of fulfilling their deepest fantasies leads to more than just a pathway to keeping a promise and saving a friend, will they be able to overcome the barriers that stand between them and forever?

Love conquers all.
Payne is part incubus, part vampire. Always hating his incubus side, he has lived an existence of dark self-restraint. Having believed he found his mate once, he was nearly destroyed when she turned on him. Now he keeps everyone at a distance for fear they will either disappoint him, or he will destroy them. Either way, Payne believes he was destined to walk alone. Hoping to find the witch who can help him assist a comrade at the Vampire Theater, he goes off in search of her.
Elissa is a witch with a problem. She needs to find her way into the incubus sanctuary in order to retrieve something that she vowed to keep safe. However, she needs an incubus to get her on the inside. Running head first into Payne was not only a blessing in disguise, but wreaked havoc on her self-control. Once she finds out that Payne is of mixed breeding, she knows she must stay away from him. Through their obvious attraction to each other, the two form an alliance that hopefully will bring them each what they desire. But will their desire for one another get in the way and cause deadly repercussions?
First off, Payne is a hot, brooding vampire/incubus with mommy and daddy issues. Elissa is a sexy, spirited witch who is wild at heart, but still afraid to dip her foot in the pool. Add these two together and you get BOOM! This couple is fantastically HOT! I loved them.
Payne is the perfect hero of this story. His constant struggle with himself and the reason behind his name will have you reaching for the Kleenex. You want him to be happy. On the other hand, Elissa is hot and a little naughty. She has always played by the rules, but Payne pushes her buttons in the most wicked of ways. She lets down her guard for him and is not disappointed when he lives up to her fantasy. These two need each other like air. They fought to be together and it was awesome.
This series just keeps getting better. These books are short and sweet, but boy do they pack a punch! Ms. Heaton puts her heart and soul into each character and it shows. Great series! Can't wait for the next installment.
