Strider is a big, sexy Lord of the Underworld who is possessed by the demon of defeat. If challenged he will do anything to win because failure to do this causes him great pain. He has met a Harpy named Kaia, beautiful, smart, and very hard to resist. She tempts him like no other, and it will be a challenge to stay away.

Kaia wants Strider, and is unwilling to take no for an answer. She will do everything in her power to achieve her goal. Kaia has been summoned to the Harpy games, where combat is dangerous and she will have a chance to make up for the past. She was dubbed Kaia the disappointment due to a mishap when she was a younger participant at the Harpy games. Strider could distract her, something she can ill afford. First Prize is a Godly artifact that would grant her great power and could also help Strider. This might cause a problem between the two of them, but the bigger problem would be if they fell in love - a prize bigger than both can imagine.

Hot, hot, hot! Beware of burns when you read this one. Gena weaves a love story like no other, filled with action, danger and some witty humor. The love scenes smolder with sexuality, bordering on deliciously naughty. Great read.
