In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series THE DARK ELEMENTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn't just Jasmine's crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything...right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn't help that Jas's father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.
And now he's back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn't taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again...

Excerpt:
 
Moving lightning fast, Dez shifted and I was suddenly underneath him. His arms were on either side of my head, caging me in. Our bodies didn't touch, but I felt him to the tips of my toes anyway.
 
The teasing grin disappeared when I dragged in a deep breath and my chest brushed his. Everything changed in an instant. The playful mood faded, replaced by primal heaviness. Our gazes collided and locked. Neither of us moved. His closeness sent a series of shivers skittering across my skin and made it hard to take slow, even breaths. My body tensed when his gaze dropped to my mouth.
 
He tilted his head to the side. "I... I honestly have no idea what we were talking about."
 
"Good. Neither do I."
 
He shifted his weight onto one arm, bringing him closer. "Have you enjoyed your trip so far?"
 
"Yes." I felt as if I couldn't get enough air into my lungs.
 
"Good." He lowered his head. His breath was minty as it moved across my cheek and then my lips. "I'm glad."
 
I wasn't really following the conversation and I wasn't sure that he was fully aware of what was coming out of his mouth. I searched my hazy brain for something to say and wet my lips. I-
 
The sound that came out of Dez's chest rumbled through me. A stuttered heartbeat passed and then his lips were on mine. There was nothing slow about this kiss. It scorched my skin and caused my body to stretch tight like a bowstring. The kiss deepened, spinning my senses. I shuddered when his hand curved over my shoulder and drifted down to my waist, his long fingers spreading out under the hem of my shirt, grazing the bare skin of my stomach.
 
I gasped, floored by the raw sensations pounding through my blood. My skin felt as if I was about to phase. Maybe I was.
 
"Jasmine," he whispered, the world falling against my lips, and then his body was pressing mine into the mattress, heavy, sweet and hard.
