Not all angels are angelic…
Thea Robinson has never needed anyone’s charity. Sure, her impoverished existence isn’t desired by most, but her ability to manipulate people’s emotions helps her to blend into the shadows of an unforgiving city. When hideous creatures threaten her life, a surly but gorgeous stranger shows up revealing a world she didn’t know existed. She refuses to put up with his rude, arrogant attitude, but how do you dismiss a warrior angel? And does she really want to when his stormy gaze sends delicious thrills straight to her core?
Cam is one of the most ruthless Power angels in the fight against evil. His devotion to kill demons has made him a celebrated warrior in the Angel Realm, even though his motivation stems from grief. When he is assigned to train and protect a half-angel just coming into her abilities, his rage is unparalleled. Until he realizes Thea isn’t like any others. She stirs a carnal passion in him that he can’t shake. He never counted on her being so beautiful… so fierce… so most definitely his.
Claimed by Power is the first book in the Empire of Angels series, a paranormal alpha angel romance series. If you’re a fan of alpha heroes, powerful heroines, paranormal worlds and falling in love, Zoey Ellis’ riveting, sexy tale is perfect for you.
About the end: Although this book can be read as a standalone, Cam and Thea’s story does continue over the next two books.
Sexual scenes and strong language included. Not suitable for readers under 18.
Cam swallowed before answering, trying to ensure no lust was present in his tone. “There are seven orders of angels. When we come into creation, it is usually with a number of other angels in the same order. So Archangels will consider the other Archangels they trained with to be their family. Dominion angels will be close to other Dominions they trained with. Power angels tend not to see things that way.” He chuckled humorlessly. “We tend to fight and live alone.”
“That sounds lonely.”
He shrugged. “Angels can mate if they feel they need the companionship.”
The wound had stopped bleeding, but hadn’t knit together. Thea stopped healing him, realizing that no more could be done for right now. “Mate?” she asked, in wonder. “Like how some animals mate for life?”
“Yes, although for us it is an eternity. It is something that can be arranged for companionship or it can be a blessing of attraction bestowed by the Creator.”
He gazed at her, a haze of desire around him. He was having trouble thinking with her so close, and couldn’t stop staring into the blue pools of her eyes. They were penetrating him, full of warmth. He was vaguely aware that he was still in his angel-form.
When she spoke again her voice was soft. “Can angels mate with humans? Or Nephilim?”
And just the thought of that, of them mating, made him lose his hard-fought-for control. He tilted his face down to capture her lips with his own, kissing her roughly, his whole body awakened. Even if she rejected him, he just needed this one thing. Just one taste.
She responded without hesitation, sucking his lips, slipping her tongue between them to tease and coax his own. His walls broke completely and he gathered her into his arms and pulled her into his lap so that she was straddling him, their mouths moving together. She whimpered against his lips when he pushed his hard cock up underneath her. Her hips ground against his, driving him wild. Their kiss deepened until they were molded together, and it felt so natural, so real to him that he couldn’t stop even if he tried. His wings moved almost of their own accord; a violent shudder fluttered through them from root to tip, and then they encircled him and Thea, creating their own private cocoon.
He ran his hands over her back, around her waist and up her neck into her hair, pressing her closer to him. The smell of her intoxicated him. Every nerve in his body throbbed with the need for more and that part of him he had tried so hard to suppress, flourished in a frenzied glee.
