From Sylvia Day, the #1 New York Times and international bestselling author of the Crossfire® series comes this steamy series starting with Eve of Darkness

Years ago, Evangeline Hollis spent a blistering night with a darkly seductive man she can’t forget. But that evening of addictive pleasure has become a disaster of biblical proportions: She’s been branded with the Mark of Cain.

Thrust into a world where sinners are marked and drafted to kill demons, Eve’s former one-night stand, Cain, is now her mentor—and his equally sexy brother Abel is her new boss.

Now Eve has become the latest point of contention in the oldest case of sibling rivalry in history...

Cursed by God, hunted by demons, desired by Cain and Abel... All in a day’s work.

"Sin is crouching at your door, it desires to have you, but you shall master it." -- The Lord to Cain, Genesis 4:7

Chapter 1

The Devil is in the details.
Evangeline Hollis understood the true gist of that saying now,...
