Juliet huffed indignant then spun on her toe to follow the guard down the long corridor. Despite her irritation with Ares, she could feel his raw, sexual energy on her heels. She had since that first night after the fight. Was he like this around all women? She didn’t know the god of war could do that. What she did know was that it was turning her inside out in all the right ways.
The chaos of the casino faded away. The opulence shifted from gaudy to elegant. She glanced out the floor to second story windows to see a hotel across the courtyard. A series of white lit fountains dotted the etched stone set in a pattern in the center of the courtyard. It was majestic. It was beautiful. It was…
Juliet was pulled from her thoughts to find the guard standing there holding the door for her. A plate next to it spelled three simple letters. VIP. By the sheer amount of ginormous security personal standing in the hall it was obvious someone certainly had to be important to be here. She heard Ares chuckle behind her. She threw a particularly wicked elbow into his ribs before she stepped inside.
The place, like so many she had been to since Ares graced her cursed existence, knocked her off guard. She expected leather covered booths, strobe lights, fog machines and go-go dancers. The leather booths were there, each of them tinted in blood red. The walls were draped in black and crimson velvet. Lit candelabras were set on pedestals to give the room just enough light. Even for a vampire the place was terrifying.
But they were dealing with the god of death.
“Ares, my boy. Finally you stop by to say hello,” a voice greeted from nowhere.
