(The Dark Elements #2)
Published: October 21st 2014 (originally August 11th 2014)
Every touch has its price.
Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Stone Cold Touch picks up from where White Hot Kiss ended, where our protagonist Layla is still reeling from the events of the last book and is trying to adjust with Roth’s sacrifice (no spoilers, don’t worry!). Just when she has gotten some sense of normalcy back into her life, Roth comes back into her life with startling news for her and the Wardens: a Lilin has somehow been born. A powerful demon that’s the offspring of the demon Lilith, a Lilin can turn humans into wraiths (suck out their soul, basically) and its escape seems to be Layla’s fault. Read More »
