A moment of clarity is all that Prez needs to know what he wants, who he wants. But Marilyn is too busy trying to shield her battered heart to take the blind leap forward. Will she realize what she not only wants but needs before it’s too late?

Savage Impulses by Michelle Hercules

Everyone knows to stay away from the heirs of Olympus Bay. They rule the city through savagery and blood like the heartless assholes they are.

A streak of bad luck puts me on the path of the most ruthless of them all. Hades. The black sheep of the family, his reputation for debauchery and violence precedes him. No wonder he’s the king of Olympus U.

He wants me to pay for a mistake I didn’t intend to make, and I fear refusing him will only end in tragedy. But there are worse fates than being the target of a savage god.

When another ruthless player enters the arena and demands more than I can give, I find myself stuck in the middle of a family war, and Hades emerges as my savior. And my captor.

The longer I stay by his side, the more I realize the man is not what he seems. He’s dark and brutal, but he also possesses a tenderness I didn’t think was possible. That’s his most dangerous weapon. If I’m not careful, I might never want to leave his prison.

Only I can’t indulge in my desires. My family needs me, and if I surrender to Hades completely, I may never see my loved ones again.

I fell—hard.

An unexpected turn of events was the wake-up call I needed. I had to tell him, come clean. But would he accept my past? Who I am?
