About the Book
From New York Times and #1 internationally best-selling author Lara Adrian, a romantic urban fantasy short story set in a dark post-apocalyptic world.
Tough female mercenary Nisha the Heartless is hired to transport mysterious cargo arrived from exotic New Asia to a well-paying client. But things are never what they seem in a dark world now populated by humans and the Strange: shapeshifters and telepaths, nymphs and hobgoblins. It is a lesson Nisha learns all too soon—one that puts her on a journey with a dangerously sexy, enigmatic man who will force her to confront the nightmares of her past, and risk her heart for a future she never dreamed could be hers...
This short story also includes information and bonus excerpts from a selection of Lara's best-selling novels.
