Publisher's Summary

If I don’t find an outlet for this rage, I’m going to lose my shit.

Lily is off-limits. Ever since we got back to Fortune Academy, it’s been too dangerous to get anywhere near her. For her sake, I keep my distance.

The rage demon that’s corrupted our mate-circle has gotten under my skin…and he knows it.

“Are you feeling sorry for yourself again?” a male voice teased, filtering into the room as the Dark Mage walked right past my wards.

“Go away, Hendrik,” I growled. 

Hendrik stepped out of the shadows as he peeled off his coat. “I could use another session,” he said, grinning as he gave the offer to spar a double-meaning. 

“Last time was a mistake,” I snapped as I went back to the vampire stake I was working on. I sliced my dagger over the tip, sending a tendril of wood falling to the ground. “We’re just being influenced by the demon.”

“I kind of like it,” he admitted as he ran his fingers over the weapons on the wall. He glanced at me when he picked a short fighting stick. “Do you think you can beat me this time?”

A grin spread across my face as the thrill of violence surged through me. I took on his taunt, wasting no time with my attack, but the Dark Mage was ready for me and shoved me hard enough against the wall to snap a rib. I released a breath and went still, letting the bone knit back into one piece.

“Do you feel it?” he asked, his breath hot on my cheek.

“I…don’t know what you’re talking about,” I lied. My strength had its limits and the Dark Mage knew it. I needed time to regenerate, or magic. Neither of which I had access to right now.

He continued to wear me out, forcing me to strain against him to catch tiny gulps of air to stay conscious.

“Concede, or I won’t be able to stop,” he warned. 

The dark edge of his voice said he needed one of two things right now to take off the demon’s edge. 

Murder…or sex, and I had a feeling I knew which one he wanted from me.

Don't miss these novellas...

Just as the title implies, this truly is an episode and so it’s under an hour to read or less than half that to listen to it. While you could read it alone, and it’s smoking hot, you’ll appreciate it a lot more if you read it following .

To say it ends on a cliffhanger wouldn’t exactly do it justice. This whole episode is a cliffhanger, but it does add some fun to the world it takes place in and serves to give an addict of this world another hit. Totally worth it, IMO.

I opted to listen and wow—a steller performance from a narrator with a very sexy voice. 5 stars for the performance.
And, while I usually only assign a max of 4 stars to short reads and episodes, I’m giving this one 5. It’s very well executed and sports some great writing.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
