They’re morally grey at best. Their pasts are littered with corpses. And their tastes in the bedroom—the things they want to do to Shannon—are twisted, sadistic, dominating… and sinfully tempting.

Or will their darker natures cost her everything?Darkest Desires is a standalone dark romance with heavy kink content and scenes that may be distressing for some readers.

Caelan is the wild card. He's volatile, impulsive, reckless... and exceptionally exhilarating. One thing is for sure, there is never a dull moment when Caelan is around.In his early days as a true demon, he was a malicious entity who thrived on causing pain and bloodshed. He's calmed down a lot since being stuck in human form, and with some help from Elias. A wickedly cruel, black sense of humor and a penchant for threatening violence at the drop of a hat still remain, but don't mind him. He's more bark than bite. He's even a little sweet, sometimes, but don't let him hear you say that.Caelan has a whole lot of attitude—he's hot shit and he knows it—and an equal serving of hiding his vulnerabilities beneath it. He's slow to open up, and slow to admit he cares, but he'll defend the people important to him to the death.Then, of course, there's his sadistic streak and dark inclinations in the bedroom. Knife play is a huge thing for Caelan and you will see that come up throughout, as well as blood play alongside it. He's the one who will literally carve his name into you, then fuck you like an animal while the blood runs down your back. If you're into that.

Elias is the control to Caelan's chaos. And, oh, is he all about dominance and control. Elias is a walking embodiment of tall, dark, and handsome—emphasis on the dark. Though shackled in human form, he still retains a lot of his power to control dark energies and shadow in a twisted form of black magic.Elias is charming and charismatic, with a voice that will make you weak at the knees. He can make anyone do anything for him and would manipulate them for his own ends—once. He tries not to do so now, but old habits die hard.Nevertheless, he still finds it extremely gratifying to have a partner who will willingly and enthusiastically give themselves to him. He craves their submission. He craves ownership of them. And his possessiveness can prove quite the beast.Elias maintains an appearance of being conscientious and in control a lot of the time, but get him in the bedroom and those darker desires are waiting just beneath the surface.
