DEMON PRINCESS: REIGN CHECK
Enter the world of Nikki Donovan, a demon princess hell-bent on living a normal teenage life!
Nikki Donovan has had a lot to deal with since learning she was half human, half demon. But things take a darker turn when Rhys, a gorgeous — but potentially dangerous — faery king enrolls at her high school to investigate Nikki’s potential for fulfilling an apocalyptic prophesy. Nikki knows she’d never turn violent, and she certainly couldn’t destroy the world…could she?
Of course, all Nikki really wants is to be reunited with Michael, a Shadow creature whose status as her personal servant is further complicated by their undeniable attraction to each other. Even though the rules of the Shadowlands strictly forbid their romance, Nikki is determined not to let Michael go. But when she is summoned to the Underworld to appear before a demon council, it will take all her courage — and perhaps a bit of demon-level strength — to get herself out again.
Here’s an excerpt!
Michael’s dark brows drew together. “What prophesy?”
“Apparently there’s some prophesy about me that was just uncovered.” A shiver went down my arms.
“Who would have told you something like that?”
I glanced over my shoulder and a distinct feeling of unease flowed through me when I saw the bearer of my prophesy news exit the cafeteria and scan his surroundings before spotting me.
“I really wish he’d just go away,” I grumbled and let go of Michael’s hand.
I nodded in the direction of the approaching faery king. “Him.”
“Nikki,” Rhys said dryly, his eyes flicking to Michael for a moment. “There you are. Trying to avoid me doesn’t change anything, you know.”
“Who are you?” Michael asked.
Rhys eyed him. “Who are you?”
“You didn’t answer my question.”
I cleared my throat. “Rhys is the king of the faery realm.”
It took a moment for this to register for Michael. “What are you doing in the human world?” he asked suspiciously.
Rhys pursed his lips. “I thought that was going to be our little secret, Nikki. Or maybe you want me to spread your little secret around as well?”
I didn’t like being threatened. “Michael lives in my father’s castle. He’s not a student here.” I looked at Michael. “Rhys came here to investigate me. Thinks I’m some sort of threat to his fellow iridescently winged friends. He’s the one who told me there’s a prophesy.”
Michael took this information in, his expression steadily darkening. “Did he threaten you, Princess?” he asked quietly.
The implied threat in biology was still crystal clear in my mind. “A little. But I—”
Before I could say another word, Michael grabbed Rhys by the front of his shirt and slammed him against a nearby locker.
“Leave the princess alone,” Michael growled, sounding as dangerous and protective as I’d ever heard him. “Or you’ll have to deal with me.”
