From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Larissa Ione comes a new story in her Demonica Underworld series…


As a special class of earthbound guardian angel called Memitim, Hawkyn is charged with protecting those whose lives are woven into the fabric of the future. His success is legendary, so when he’s given a serial killer to watch over, he sees no reason for that to change. But Hawkyn’s own future is jeopardized after he breaks the rules and rescues a beautiful woman from the killer’s clutches, setting off an explosive, demonic game of cat and mouse that pits brother against brother and that won’t end until someone dies.

Aurora Mercer is the half-wytchlone survivor of a psychopath who gets off on the sadistic torture of his victims. A psychopath whose obsessive psyche won’t let him move on until he kills her. Now she’s marked for death, her fate tied to that of a murderer…and to a sexy angel who makes her blood burn with desire…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

“Let me see your wings.”
 A smear of pink brightened his cheeks. “Memitim don’t have wings,” he said, which sounded like a convenient excuse. “Not real ones. But I have something similar.” 
 Before she could ask what he meant, a pair of misty, smoke-colored wings punched into the air behind him. “These allow me to move invisibly when I need to.”
 Her mouth went dry with shock. He really was an angel. She was standing in the presence of a being she hadn’t thought was real. Heck, she had always been *this close* to being an atheist, despite the existence of demons which, some would say, proved the existence of God.
 “Can I touch them?”
 “You can try.” He shifted, allowing her access. “But your hand will pass through them. They’re made of shadow.”
 She reached out, expecting to feel empty air, but instead her fingers felt...something. Something electric. He went taut as she stroked the apex of one of his ghostly wings.
 “I can sense your touch,” he breathed. “You can...feel them?”
 “Yes,” she said, in absolute awe that she was in contact with a real, Heavenly being. 
 Well, an earthbound Heavenly being, anyway. “They feel like warm water with an electrical current running through it.”
Curious, she concentrated on absorbing some of his energy through her palm, but nothing happened. She dropped her gaze to his perfect ass. Maybe if she touched a more solid part of his body...
 “I don’t understand.” He stepped away, his expression one of genuine confusion. 
 “No one has ever been able to touch them. This is the first time I’ve gotten any sensation from them at all.”
 Huh. Weird. “What did it feel like?”
 “Like...a caress. Like they were real wings and they were connected to my—” He broke off and gave her a cheeky grin. “Never mind.”
 Too late. Her gaze slid downward, and she drew an appreciative breath at the impressive bulge behind the fly of his jeans.


Sonja's Review 

I've loved all of the Demonica novellas I’ve read, so I couldn’t wait to read Hawkyn! It was even better than I was expecting and I absolutely loved it. Hawkyn was beyond excellent and I can’t wait for whatever Demonica book comes next!

It wasn’t hard at all to love Aurora — in fact, I loved her from the very beginning. She’s strong, spunky, and full of life and energy. Aurora is kind, level-headed, and understanding. She’s just sweet and wonderful and I loved getting to know her.

Hawkyn isn’t hard to love either. He is and takes his job seriously, but he’s also a bit of a rebel and he definitely has his own mind. He is determined, driven, and he wants to man's a difference. Hawkyn has such a good heart and he’s such a good man — it’s impossible not to fall for him.

I had the best time reading Hawkyn. It was so interesting and fascinating to visit this particular Demonica World. I feel like I learn new things every time I pick up one of them and it always makes for an exciting adventure and leaves me eager to discover more from both the old and future books. Hawkyn was fantastic and full of passion, action, and so much more — I just loved, loved, loved it!

Hawkyn can be read as a standalone, it’s told from multiple points of view, and Hawkyn and Aurora do get their happily ever after.
