In the shadows of our world, a secret band of warriors fights to protect us. They are the last line of defense against an evil no human can stop.

An ancient nemesis has resurfaced. Duty demands that Ashor Vlahos, Scimitar Magi commander, recruit a magical healer to fortify the remaining eight magi. The gods' choice is the woman who helped him escape torture a decade ago. Ashor couldn't have imagined a better punishment for his vow-breaker homicidal incidents than for the gods to bind him irrevocably to the only woman in the universe he cannot have. The soul-searing desire she ignites in him is strictly forbidden.

Kira Hardy, M.D. is a brilliant, hardworking internal med resident with big secrets. But when Ashor asks for aid after a brutal daemon attack, she is sucked into his dangerous, secret world. Enslavement to the magi, no matter how hot they are, may be an unattractive life plan, but being targeted for death by their enemies is less tolerable.

She must trust the sexy, tormented Ashor to keep her safe while he must deny his ultimate desire and keep Kira at arm's length lest he bring destruction down on them both. As a centuries-old evil catches up to them, they face a crucial decision--follow the gods' rules or follow their hearts.

*Warning: Contains explicit sex, graphic language, action-adventure, and an exceptionally hot tatted hero.

After an unjustified two-century stint in purgatory, Scimitar Magus Dakar returns to the human realm, renewing his eons-old curse. Once again he must murder the woman he loves. To break the vicious cycle, he must kill her before she strikes her deathblow, something he's never done in the past.

Archaeology grad student, Shay McGinnis, suffers a near-death attack in pursuit of a piece of Scimitar Magi lore.  But did the magnificent warrior who pinned her to the wall injure her or the daemon he fought?  In her search for answers, she draws the attention of both an ancient evil sorcerer and the warrior Dakar. The attraction between her and Dakar is instant, and for Shay confusing. She wants to be with him, but intuition equates him with death. Not random death. Hers. 

Will this be the lifetime they break the curse before they are murdered by an age old enemy or worse kill each other yet again?

Shay's brain ordered her body to make a break for it, or at least let loose a scream to draw attention, but she stood there, dazed and staring. It was the throw-your-panties-off-gorgeous bad boy from her hotel room.

My God, this guy was a brick shithouse oozing don't-screw-with-me vibes. And didn't that just make her knees weak. She was so not a swooning type of girl.

Despite the warmth of the day, he wore a knee-length black leather jacket. No doubt, he was armed out the wazoo beneath it.

He subjected her to a scrutinizing once-over. A swirling black substance in his irises mesmerized her. She hadn't noticed that last night.

What was this guy? Definitely not completely human. A month ago, she would've rationalized the sludgy black substance obscuring the real color of his irises into normalcy and remained in complete denial of anything amiss.

She wondered if this guy might just be the real deal--one of those mythical, sorcerer-like immortals obligated to fight daemons for all eternity. A Scimitar Magus. Shouldn't he be a good guy? A hero figure? Why then did her intuition demand immediate evasion? For some reason, her gut equated this guy with death, but not random death. Hers.

Please welcome author, Zoe Forward, who has stopped by to answer some questions and share some details about her books.

(Zoe) Thank you for having me drop by! I’m celebrating the release of the second in the Scimitar Magi paranormal series, Forgotten in Darkness. I love writing about hot alpha badboys and mixing in a bit of ancient Egyptian myth. I’m also a veterinarian, mom of one young son, wife, and total readaholic.

What inspired you to write your first book?

(Zoe) I’ve had chatty characters bouncing around in my head for eons. A few years ago everything came together. The characters in my head demanded they be released onto paper, my love of Egyptian mythology and my obsession for PNR. It’s been an exhilarating adventure ever since.

What is your favorite book that you wrote?

(Zoe) I love the third installment in the Scimitar Magi series, which is in editing right now. In this story Astrid Scarre, ex-covert operative, finally arrives at the threshold of the death she’s sought for years. She’s yanked back into life for recruitment into the Scimitar Magi. The gods require she be doorkeeper to the magikal prison in which they housed Draggon, the magus who stole her heart and then shattered her life when he attempted to kill her years ago. He may be the only magus who can eliminate a deadly daemon enemy, but he’s uncontrollable and unpredictable. Facing him ignites their gods-fated attraction, but does not eliminate Astrid’s hate. She is pulled between her physical attraction for Draggon, and her emotional connection to the man she longs to give her heart to – her spy partner, Kane Langford. The pull between these two men might destroy her. Sometimes soulbound love is not enough.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

(Zoe) I have many favs, and many who influenced me. I started out fascinated by Ann Rice’s The Witching Hour. Her story telling is…well, it’s awesome. Then I discovered romance! I followed paranormal romance from its fledgling inception through the vampire crazy to now when there are so many wonderful otherworld creatures and talented authors. Anyone who’s a PNR fan must give kudos to J.R. Ward, Christine Feehan, and Karen Marie Moning. Those ladies are immensely talented story tellers.

Can you share a little of your current work with us?

(Zoe) I’m so excited about my recently completed Pleiades witch novel called Reality Shift, the first in a new series from Entangled Publishing. In this novel Kat Ramsey, veterinarian with an unusual ability to read minds, has a big problem – dimension hopping. She’s now trapped in an alternate reality with religious nut jobs who believe the inquisition never ended targeting her. And the only person she knows is the one-night stand from years ago who she accidentally cursed. 

What book are you reading now? 

(Zoe) I’m finishing up Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye. Isn’t she amazing? She ranks up there with my hero authors that I mentioned before with her masterful delivery of characters and a splash of fantastic chemistry. I also just finished Rebecca Zanetti’s Forgotten Sins, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks? 

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
(Zoe) I love to hear from readers! Read more about my books and get info on giveaways:
