Riana Dumain and her triad sisters are Sybils, a secret organization of magically gifted women with the ability to control the elements who have been battling the darkest of foes,the Legion, for centuries. Her affinity for earth elements is her strength, and her weakness. Her sister Sybils balance her, make her stronger. Until now Riana’s sole focus has been keeping the Legion and its demon minions in check — and keeping her sisters’ alive — but then NYPD detective Creed Lowell enters her life. Now Creed, the overwhelming desire she feels for him — and the demon locked inside of him — occupies too much of her waking thoughts and many of her dreams. But her instincts tell her there is more to the handsome detective’s demon half than even he knows.
Creed is a member of the low profile Occult Crimes Unit. No one knows about his secret half except for his twin brother, who hides the same creature within. Not even his partner. When a politician’s young son is murdered in an apparent ritual sacrifice, Creed and his partner draw Riana and her ‘sisters’ into their investigation. But Creed is the key to cracking the case wide open and the best weapon the Sybils have against the Legion.
