Passion is blind in vengeance and love  …
Ayden’s suburban home was invaded by a pack of Lycans.
The brutal attack is the only memory she carries of her former life.
Now, one motive burns in her soul:


The Sons of Wrath—a brood of vengeance-dealing warrior demons—band with Ayden to hunt the Lycans on Detroit’s most deadly feeding grounds.

Kane Walker should’ve been her easiest kill.
Unfortunately, the newly bitten Lycan has something she wants—clues that may finally lay her past to rest.  To reach them, she must be willing to submit to the sensual pleasures awakened by his touch.

Time is running out.

In seven days, Kane will become what Ayden despises most.  She can halt his transformation but the antidote requires the ultimate sacrifice.  As the beast takes hold, Kane becomes more of a threat.
Ayden must choose between her lust for revenge, or surrender to her enemy and discover a horrible truth.

One of the questions I’ve been asked a couple of times about my new Sons of Wrath series is:  why demons?  So I thought I’d take the opportunity in this guest blog to answer.

I’m fascinated by angels and demons, good versus evil, and how distinctly separate the two can be.  As a mere mortal, I find this duality a little hard to grasp though– that one entity can be so good and flawless while the other can be pure evil with malicious intent.  In my mind, I’ve always had this desire to smear the two a little and give angels some imperfections and demons a conscience.  Call it a human need to seek out relatable and redeeming qualities…

When I came up with the idea of the Sons, I wanted a brotherhood of supernaturals that not only had this dangerous brutality about them and an ability to effectively carry out vengeance, but also a set of morals and an honor code amongst themselves.  In the book, they are summoned by those who’ve been wronged.  The brothers are very selective about the cases they agree to take on, and tend to gravitate toward severe circumstances that might be considered more justifiable punishment. 

What I like about them is that the inner battles they face make them much more than a bunch of mindless beasts out to corrupt human beings and lead them astray.  They’re not perfect in one way or the other—they drink and dabble in sex and drugs, suffer their own inner demons, face relationship issues and loss—just like any human being might.  I think these characteristics give them much more depth and make them easier to relate to.  Yes, they have superhuman strength and abilities, but within their own realm, these attributes are comparable to other supes, making them less pronounced—a food chain, of sorts. 

The brothers are bad boys in that they’re dark and violent when provoked or called upon, but at the same time, they’re also very protective and reverent lovers—a nice balance of evil and goodness.  They have a deep respect for women in spite of their wild sex drive.  They’re also casino bosses who dress GQ and smell good too!  A total package of sexy as hell.

Keri Lake Bio:

Keri Lake is a married mother of two living in Michigan.  She writes paranormal romance, urban fantasy and loves a good, tragic love story.  Though novels tend to be her focus, she also writes short stories and flash fiction whenever distraction manages to suck her in to the Land of Shiny Things.

When she isn’t toiling away on plots and protagonists, she enjoys reading, music and travel.  If she could create mystical powers for herself, she’d have the ability to flash to anywhere in the world.  And if she could flash to anywhere in the world at this very moment, she’d be staring at the ocean from her adirondack chair on the shores of North Carolina.
