Lia is here to give you a closer look at Jagger from Death’s Storm.
Jagger is everything I love in a romance hero. He’s a death demon, so the dark, bad boy edge is there. He’s also loyal to those he love and he’s compassionate under the alpha male stubbornness.
So why is he so loyal to the magickin and determined to help the Divinities win the war against demons?
One, Khan (the evil big bad) ordered Jagger’s village to be destroyed. His whole family except for his half brother, Lex, was killed in cold blood. Vengeance runs deep in his veins. Two, Hecate took him and Lex in, trained them in the craft of magic and shown him patience, which was no easy task. The goddess also showed him love.
Through his bond to Hecate, he has unlimited powers. However, his discipline taught him to only use the power as a last resort. Plus he is a descendant of the Fates. His actions will affect more than just his intended target.
When he meets his mate, the strong willed and equally stubborn Khloe, his patience is tested as the need to protect her from the enemy and herself rises.
Title: Death’s Storm, The Divinities, book 2
Author: Lia Davis
Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing
Length: 42,000 words
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Technical genius and demi-goddess--aka Divinity--Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone other than her twin. After her parents died by the demons’ hands over two years ago, she has graciously stepped up to her place in the war between demons and witches. When a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian, she is torn between her desires for the dark predator and the painful loss she has endured at the hands of her enemies.
One of the last death demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess Hecate. Charged with the guardianship over the Divinities, he is never to approach them, but to aid them from a distance. When the firestorm, Khloe, sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and becomes the prey, he has no choice but to reveal himself to her. He is taken by surprise when the need to claim her as his own emerges. A desire he has never felt before could be more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.
Here’s an excerpt from Death’s Storm:
“What are you up to?”
Jagger groaned at the sound of his brother’s voice behind him. He closed his eyes and drew in a deep breath. He so didn’t need to fight with Lex right now.
“My job.” He turned and walked past him to the other side of the study, where a set of drawers lined the opposite wall next to the bookshelf.
“Is to protect them,” Jagger said through clenched teeth as he whirled around to stand nose to nose with him.
Lex smirked. “From a distance, brother.”
Jagger turned back to searching the contents of the draws. “I had no choice.” He sighed and lowered his shoulders. He gave Lex the short version of the attack on the Divinities and Khloe’s self-sacrifice to keep the others safe. “I had to get her out there. I’d have no problem with taking on the Regals, but with her powers muted, she’d be nothing but a distraction.”
A silver key appeared in front of his face. Jagger wrapped his fingers around it, but Lex held onto the ring connected to it. “What are you motives? And don’t think about brushing this off as an ‘I’m doing my job’ bit. I know you.” He paused, searching Jagger’s face, then smiled. “You like the female.”
Figures. One of rare occasions Jagger saw any kind of emotion on his brother’s face, and it was at his expense. Snatching the key out of Lex’s hand, he turned to stroll toward the door. He stopped when his brother asked, “What can I do to help?”
“Can you go keep a watch on the Divinity House?” he asked over his shoulder. He saw Lex’s nod from the corner of his eye and said, “Thanks.” He rushed out of the study and back upstairs where he’d left Khloe.
When he arrived at his bedroom door, he paused and listened. It was quiet except for her heartbeat. By the rapid beats, he could tell she was frustrated. Smiling, he twisted the knob and slowly pushed open the door.
She sat on the bed with her head bent, picking at the lock on the cuff until he stepped inside the room and shut the door with a soft click. Her head snapped up, her eyes a darker teal than they’d been when he’d left her. Stunned, he stared as if seeing her for the first time. Her face was clean of makeup, showing her natural beauty, but it was her hair that caught his attention. Wet from the shower, it cascaded over her shoulders. The pink streaks were gone. He shifted his eyes to her attire. She wore nothing but an oversized bath towel wrapped around her small frame, tucked in between her breast to hold it in place.
The only things that remained the same were her tiny nose piercing and a small hoop piercing in her eyebrow.
“What?” she snapped.
