Juliet nearly tumbled out of bed when she felt the soft fabric caress her naked body. She fought the fog that smothered her senses. She glanced sleepily around the cave. Instead of the brilliant, blue sky above her head she was surrounded by gauzy creme colored curtains. The flames from the multiple candelabras set all over the room flickered leaving dark shadows cast along the rock walls. She looked like she was back in Hades club, not Ares’s home. Was she?
He gaze fell on the god of war hunched over his knees as he sat on the final step of the stone staircase. She chided herself. Part of her knew she’d end up here. She believed every word that Ares said when he told her he was leaving her alone in Vegas at Dillion’s mercy.
She believed him so much she wandered the streets of Vegas alone. She couldn’t stop searching for the vampire hunter. If she weren’t scared out of her cursed immortal skin, she would have realized that Dillion was probably too busy to hunt her. It had been centuries since Juliet had been with a woman. She had been a mortal in the French court the last time she slept with another female. Even then and now as a certified member of the undead, she preferred men. But she had to admit the goddess of love could make her change her tune in a heartbeat. Juliet would do anything Aphrodite wanted her do just to be in her bed for one night.
She paused. Not everything. She wouldn’t give up Ares. But she wasn’t sure he wanted her anymore. With what his uncle said about Zeus, she couldn’t blame him.
She squinted across the dim room to see what he was up to.
