Kill for You by Ayden K. Morgen







Kill For You 

A Warrior For Her #2 

by Ayden K. Morgen 

Genre: Romantic Suspense









The last thing Detective Octavio Hernandez expects to find at the scene of a mass gang-related shooting is a brown-eyed angel standing bravely in the midst of the chaos. One look at Faith Donovan and the homicide detective knows there's more to her than meets the eye. She's keeping secrets that just might help bring down Los Zetas, one of the biggest drug cartels in Los Angeles. 



He just has to convince her that trusting him is worth the risk. 



Forced upon a mother who didn't want her and enslaved by a gang that refuses to let her go without a fight, Faith's life has never been her own. She thought she'd made peace with her fate…until Octavio sweeps in and carries her out of her blood-soaked cage. 



Faith trusts no one, but the hardened detective makes it difficult to remember why. The way he cares for her makes her ache for what she never thought she'd find: love and a family of her own. But trusting him when she knows he has an ulterior motive is one of the most difficult things she'll ever do. 



He swore to give her the freedom she craves, but when the secrets she holds paint a target on her back, keeping that promise will prove no easy feat. 



To secure her freedom and win her heart, this detective will move mountains. And take down anyone standing in his way.

Fight For You 

A Warrior For Her #1 












Some people are worth dying for.

For me, January James is both. 



Too bad she hates me. 



Ten years ago, I destroyed her life and lost everything that mattered to me. I've been in hell since, desperately trying to forget her even though I've never been able to do it. She still haunts me. 



Now a dangerous enemy from my past has it out for her. He isn't going to stop until he gets what he wants. I know I should stay away before I hurt her all over again, but I can't do it. 



It's time to stop running and start fighting for her. 



My name is Michael Kincaid, and this is my swan song.  When it's over, I'll either be the monster at the end of this book…or I'll be the man January deserves. 



Fight for You is an angsty and emotional brother's best friend, second chance romance. It is the first book in a series of interconnected full-length standalone novels featuring alpha male cops willing to do whatever it takes to protect the women who need them most. Each book has no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA. 



**Only .99cents  3/15 to 3/31 on Amazon!**

"You should eat something, Faith."

"I'm not hungry." It's not a lie. The thought of food sends bile creeping up my throat. Octavio doesn't need to know that part though. "I had a big lunch."

He growls wordlessly, thrusting out an arm to stop me from slipping past him. "Stop trying to run from me, little bunny. It's pissing me off."

"I'm not running from you."

His eyes flash fire at me. "You're lying to me."

"I'm not…" The warning look he sends in my direction unravels my protest before I can even fully formulate it. "You're tired, Octavio. I'm just trying to get out of the way so you can go to bed. You've only had two hours of sleep since you got up yesterday morning."

"I'd sleep a hell of a lot better if you were in my bed with me, conejita."

"That's…not a good idea."

"Why not?"

"Because it's not."

Another growl rumbles in his chest. Something almost predatory flares in his chocolate eyes. He takes a step toward me, his expression fierce. I back up, but he keeps moving forward, stalking me like a wild animal until my back is pressed against the wall beside the recliner. My heart pounds like a drum against my ribcage and my stomach flutters.

"Back up," I whisper, my voice shaking.

"I'm not going to hurt you."

I never thought he would, but he's too close. If he touches me, I'll crumble. And being rejected by this man once was enough. I don't think I'll survive a repeat of that.

"I'd tear my heart out of my chest before I hurt you."

"You already hurt me," I whisper.

"How?" He leans over me, placing his forearm on the wall above my head. His scent surrounds me, making me dizzy. I lock my knees, clenching my hands into fists to keep myself from wrapping them in his shirt. "Tell me, little bunny. What did I do to hurt you?"

"You didn't want me." I grit my teeth and square my jaw, fighting the urge to cry over that fact. I think I'd sell my soul to belong to this man, but he doesn't feel the same way about me. That shouldn't matter as much as it does. It shouldn't hurt so damn badly. My own mother didn't want me, but I think knowing Octavio doesn't want me hurts even worse than that.

"Ah, angel," he whispers, his voice pained…as if I hurt him. "Don't you know I'd kill any man who tried to touch you?" He brings his right arm up, tipping my face up toward his with gentle fingers. The intense expression on his face sears into me, stealing my breath. "Tu me vuelves loca. Te adoro. Te necesito. Quiero que seas mio."

"I…what?" My head spins and I know there's no way I'm awake because there's no way he just told me that he adores me. That he needs me. That he wants me to be his.

"You drive me crazy. I adore you. I need you. I want you to be mine," he whispers, leaning forward to place his lips against my cheek as he confirms that I didn't mishear anything he said.

"I…" My mouth won't work. My tongue feels thick and heavy, like it's cloven to the roof of my mouth. My knees tremble like they might give out beneath me.

"Believe me," he whispers, his voice a rumbling growl of sound that liquefies my insides. "When you kissed me, I never wanted you to stop. It was the best damn kiss of my life. But I was trying to be good, Faith. I was trying to be honorable. To be the kind of man who deserves you."

"I…I don't understand."

"I didn't want you to think I was anything like Sanders, willing to use my position as your caretaker to get you into my bed." He leans back until his chocolate gaze collides with mine. Nothing but sincerity burns in the dark depths of his eyes. "I've tried so damn hard to be good. But I'm just a man. And if I don't make you mine soon, I'm going to lose my fucking mind in want of you."


"Octavio." My mind spins again, trying to make sense of what he's saying, trying to fit it into place with what I know about him. That he thinks he's anything like Agent Sanders breaks my heart. How can he not know that I've never once compared him to that horrible man? That I would never compare them? "You're nothing like him. You are a good, honorable man." I swallow hard, tears welling in my eyes. "The best man I've ever known."



My Dream Cast
Guest Post by Ayden K. Morgen

What author doesn't love picking out a dream cast? I know I do! Because characters from Kill for You appear in other books in the Warrior series and in the Her Best Friend's Father Saga, I've had my dream cast picked for a while.

Here are my picks for the Kill for You Dream Cast.

Detective Octavio Hernandez – DJ Cotrona


I don't crush on my own characters often, but sweet Jesus. I love Octavio. When I first imagined him, I had no idea who DJ Cotrona was. When I saw him in Shazam! a couple months ago, I almost fell off the couch because he is Octavio to a T.

Faith Donovan – Kat Graham

Faith is pretty small. Mostly because she's lived in captivity for the last five years and her captors weren't particularly kind. She's also pretty sassy underneath it all, especially when dealing with Octavio. Kat Graham is a perfect mix of both, I think.

Agent Roman Gregory – Jason Momoa



Roman is a giant mountain of a man who looks like he could chew you up and spit you out…but who is really just a big teddy bear. Jason Momoa would make a pretty believable Roman.

Mila Lawson – Kate Upton


Mila is curvy and sassy. Roman calls her his little blonde bombshell. If Kate Upton had green eyes, she'd be pretty perfect as Mila.

Finn Bethel – Morris Chestnut


Finn is a hard-ass who is used to issuing orders. He's also even more massive than Roman is. Morris is the perfect pick!

Agent Michael "Cade" Kincaid – Christopher Mason Brown


Cade is tall, blond, and kind of a badass. He's a little scary, but underneath the tattoos and gangbanger persona, he's a big softie, especially where January is concerned.

January James – AnnaSophia Robb


January is in her mid-twenties, but she's this little bitty thing who looks younger than she is. Cade is super protective of her because of her diminutive size. AnnaSophia Robb, who is the same age and just as small, would be a really good fit for her.

Agent Luke Santiago – Bruno Bevan


Luke is Brazilian American and is fiery hot! He's all alpha and has a soft spot for women and kids. Maybe because he has four little sisters who wrapped him around their fingers. Bruno (who I adore) would make a killer Luke.
