The breathtaking second novel in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Broken Destiny series finds Ivy and Adrian rekindling their alliance – and passion – as the struggle for the fate of the world begins . . .
Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous – and dangerously sexy – Adrian. Ivy isn’t sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between demon and human realms, or resisting Adrian, who’s decided that come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.

At first, Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he’s vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny—and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them —will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined…

Excerpt from THE SWEETEST BURN by Jeaniene Frost

I began to hike up my dress as I resumed walking. Adrian watched with interest until I reached the straps around my upper thighs. I gave him a censuring look as I pulled out my cell phone. No, I wasn’t flashing him. I had to give Costa and Jasmine a heads-up that they needed to start packing. Poor Costa. He’d taken me and my sister in because we couldn’t return to our old house—or our old lives—after I’d decimated a demon realm rescuing Jasmine. Now, Costa would be forced to leave his own home, and I had no idea where any of us would go.
But when I looked at my phone, I let out a groan. The front of it was smashed so badly, I could see the plastic casing behind it. Memories of the minion’s fists explained how that had hap­pened. My ribs hadn’t been the only thing he’d bashed as he’d tried to kill me.
“Do you have a phone?” I asked, breaking my new silence.
His mouth tightened. “No.”
“Who goes anywhere without a cell phone?” I muttered.
Adrian’s features closed off, as if this was somehow a sore sub­ject. “I’ve been having issues with mine.”
We walked in silence for several moments. The sun was almost fully up, and I felt bad for Brutus flying in those rays while tak­ing the demon far out over the ocean, even though I was ticked at Brutus for sneaking behind my back to see Adrian.
“Do you know the worst part of staying away from you these past months?” Adrian asked. “I thought it would be remember­ing everything that had happened between us, but instead, it was thinking of everything we didn’t do.”
I still said nothing. If he’d missed me so much, ignoring me for months was a real unique way of showing it.
He moved closer, until his big body blocked the wind. I still didn’t look up at him, but kept staring straight ahead as if I could will myself back at Costa’s with sheer mind power.
“I showed you terrible places when I should have shown you beautiful ones,” he went on, his voice deepening. “Told you hor­rible details about my past instead of letting you get to know the person I’d become, and I taught you how to wield that sling­shot instead of teaching you a thousand different things that we would’ve enjoyed much, much more.”
The way his voice caressed that last part made his mean­ing explicitly clear. Surprise combined with a rush of heat as a treacherous part of myself started imagining what those things might have been. My lack of experience meant I didn’t have a lot to go on, but my mind seemed up to improvising. Then, with a mental slap, I forced those thoughts back.
“Too late now,” I said in a crisp tone.
Adrian caught me to him, his hands closing like warm steel bands around my arms.
“Ivy, listen. When we met, I didn’t think I could beat my fate. That’s why I kept pushing you away, why I didn’t tell you who I was at first and why I didn’t tell you what I felt until, yes, it was almost too late. But it’s not too late.” He stared at me until his gaze felt almost palpable with his intensity. “I know what I feel for you, and it’s stronger than any destiny. I told you the last time I saw you that I’d make you believe in us again. I meant that, and regardless of how mad you are at me, if you had a hard time resisting me when I was fighting my feelings for you…you won’t stand a chance now that I’m not.”My jaw dropped as pride chased away the dangerous warmth that had caused me to sway the tiniest bit closer to him. I’d prac­tically thrown myself at him the last time circumstances had forced us to spend time together, and what had that gotten me? Betrayed and dumped. Damned if I’d let history repeat itself.
