Huge congrats to my pal Luna Joya on the release of Wicked Grace! I’m so excited to share an excerpt with you today.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
He’s a grumpy demon prince. She’s a sunshine magical orphan who’s his fated mate and forbidden. But can he survive rejecting her?
Demon prince Alexei is ruthless in business and deadly in battle. The mafia boss will do anything to protect his family, even consider an arranged marriage with a royal he doesn’t love.
There’s just one problem.
When the grumpy hero rescues a sunshine princess locked away in a tower, he knows she’s his fated mate. She also seems to be a freakin’ forbidden angel. Like the villain he is, Alexei rejects her without saying why.
Despite her tortuous childhood, Jolene is determined to find her real family and win her grumpy prince. Come on—the man has wings! But loving her antihero makes him a target of her human enemies who are out to destroy all supernaturals.
These two opposites attract in all the wicked ways. But when supernatural children in Alexei’s hometown start disappearing, the two must work together, and Jolene will have to reveal that her sunshine-and-sparkles magic isn’t what it seems. Can they find their happily ever after or will their differences and enemies destroy them both?

A smile spread over her mouth, curving the edges into a slice of sunshine. Something twisted in Alexei’s gut, a strange need to keep her smiling.
His mother’s voice echoed in his head, her warning when he’d signed the contract to marry Yulia Sidorich, the most beautiful and coldest of demon princesses, for the good of his kingdom. Once our demon side recognizes the person we’re meant to be with at first sight, and that’s it. You’ll want nothing more than to make your mate happy, to protect her, to care for her. There’s no fighting the call.
But destiny would’ve chosen a mate closer to his own age, someone else a couple of years from college and beginning their adult life— not some kid, right? Except his father had over a decade on his mother.
“Thank you,” the girl said in English, pure and clear, a tinkling bell against the background of honking horns and a street musician’s haunting violin. Her voice soothed his magic, took the fire out of his rage. She tipped her head, taking him in with those innocent eyes. “They were scared of you. Why?”
