An ancient sect of gods, known as Sin-Eaters, have one last chance to save humanity from an Emperor God bent on world domination. And it all begins with Gluttony.
Tialoc had one mission, find gluttony and return it to the tlazolli or sin box. He doesn’t expect to find the sin wrapped in a sexy chocolate-skinned woman or that she is his mate.
CJ accepts a trip to paradise to meet Tialoc. When an accident sidelines her before their first date, she’s hesitant to go at all. What she isn’t prepared for is the passion or love they share.
When their lovemaking has unexpected consequences, time is of the essence. Tialoc must convince CJ to embrace her destiny or lose him forever.
Tenochtitlán, Sometime in the Past
War was inevitable.
Tialoc peered around the marble Pantheon. Great stone pillars disappeared into the high vaulted ceiling. Sculptures of fallen gods, those who’d lost their immortality, littered the cavernous throne room like forgotten trash. Several lesser deities clothed in silver breastplates and feathered headdresses stood at attention beside the doors and strategic points along the wall. Tialoc tried not to smile. He could take them all out with a flick of his wrist and a well-placed lightning bolt.
He was a god, part of an ancient sect known as the Sin-Eaters. He commanded the elements, held enormous strength, and was next in line for the crown. He could do without the throne.
“You demanded an audience, then show blatant disrespect?” A strident voice thundered. “You will kneel before my throne.”
Tialoc merely lifted a brow. The annoyance in Emperor God’s voice did not spur Tialoc forward, instead, he met the other god’s cold stare with insolence. “You have shown little respect for anyone but yourself, Emperor God,” the last bit was said with a sneer.
Moctezuma flashed a cold smile. “And now you keep me waiting as well.”
