The past is Darker than they thought...
Between helping her mother with the Darker Agency and laying the smack down on monster baddies, Jessie Darker puts the “normal” in paranormal. But lately, things have gotten a little crazy...even for a smart-assed half-demon teenage girl.
For starters, Jessie’s been contracted into fifty-five years of annoying servitude. To a demon. Then there’s Lukas Scott, her sexy new boyfriend. Once the former incarnation of Wrath, he’s been going through some...uh, changes. Like residual anger. And trading chaste hangouts for lusty make-out sessions.
But it’s when Lukas and Jessie accidentally release a Very Nasty Demon that things get really bad, setting into motion a chain of death and mayhem that threatens both Earth and the Shadow Realm. Jessie has exactly four days to fix it...before all of Hell breaks loose.

"It serves a purpose. We need information." Lukas came to stand beside me. He had that look again. The same one I’d seen in his eyes when we left Dobbs Park. His gaze traveled the length of my body twice before lifting—and staying—on my lips. "Besides, if left to our own devices…"
I'd ultimately put the brakes on things in the park, and even though one side of my brain screamed at me to keep quiet and continue working, the other side, one might argue my demonic side, wanted to urge him on. "And what devices would those be, Mr. Scott?"
There was a spark of deviousness in his eyes, and it sent my pulse racing. He traced the outline of my jaw, then let his finger drift over my chin and down the front of my throat before sliding his hand around to the back of my neck. There was no butt grabbing this time, but it didn’t matter. The look in his eyes was ten times hotter than a copped feel could be.
"You know." A wicked grin slipped across his lips, and his voice dropped to just above a whisper. "The inappropriate ones."
With a single twitch of his wrist, he brought us together. Our lips met, and I felt it everywhere. From my forehead down to the tips of each toe. Warmth spread like wildfire as he grasped for skin through my clothing. His left hand drifted down my torso, then slipped underneath my shirt and wrapped around my waist. Skin against skin. The contact made it all feel so much more electric, and I couldn’t help the sigh that escaped my lips. A shocking patch of warmth against the cool air in the office.
"Touching, kissing," he said between kisses. We stumbled backward, up against the wall behind my desk. With a jerk, we were facing the other direction, flush against the desk. In a single, swift maneuver, Lukas had our placement reversed. He was sitting on the edge, and I was in his lap with a leg on either side.
"Kisses aren't inappropriate," I said as he trailed a set of scorchers along my jaw and to my ear, taking the tip between his teeth for a fraction of a second. The action nearly had me screaming.
Warm breath tickled my neck. "The kind I have in mind are." He brought his lips back to my ear.
