Sequel to Kiss Me Deadly Abandoned by the one she thought would never cause her harm, Viridian Steel has no choice but to leave the place she'd begun to call home with none other than Ryder -Octavian's devilishly charming son- by her side. Together, the reluctant allies must save Octavian's latest experiments and find a way to take down the monstrous leader before he causes more destruction. As if that wasn't enough, Viridian must also face the demons of her past and resist the temptation to let in the darkness once again. But that's easier said than done when resisting means someone you love will die. Old flames, broken hearts and heart-stopping suspense come together in the second book of the Kiss Me Deadly series . . . Kill Me Softly.
