Everything Caerus Thornton touches turns to gold… or dies.

Furious at his failure, the Fates exile Thanatos on Earth, where he must remain until he redeems himself in the eyes of his fellow gods.
Somewhere along the way Thanatos finds himself falling for the woman he’s spent more than two decades trying to kill.

The sound of a transport rumbled in the distance. Seeing his opportunity, Thanatos reached for her hand and nudged it so the wheel moved to the left. Lost in her dreams of a beach vacation, she didn’t even shiver at the contact. Every human felt the brush of Death, except Caerus Thornton. She should be dead. His touch was Death. Her immunity to his touch caused him the most distress, because no matter how exceptional, a human couldn’t survive his touch—not without divine intervention.
Thanatos pushed with more force than was necessary. No matter what got in his way the woman would die. She and her tiny silver sports car wouldn’t survive a collision with the massive vehicle approaching. The car moved into the oncoming traffic lane as Caerus focused on finding another station on the radio, oblivious to the horror looming ahead.
His breath caught. Would he finally rid himself of his epic nightmare? The stain that left an eternal black mark on an otherwise spotless record would finally vanish in a mess of twisted metal and gore. The very idea sent an almost orgasmic chill through his body.
The elation vanished as something else, something strangely familiar, crept into the small car with them.
Thanatos gritted his teeth. As the truck came into view, he willed the car to keep its course. The Mercedes shook as it ran over a bump in the road and the cell phone flew off the console to clatter on the floor near her feet.
It must happen.
