LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE…
Book Title: Obsession (An Arum Novel: Adult companion novel to the Lux Series)
Job: I work for the Department of Defense to help protect the world from the Luxen. The DOD seems to think I’m their bitch. They would be wrong.
Weight: My weight doesn’t matter. Just the fact that I’m a solid wall of rock hard abs and pure muscle.
Hair Color: Wavy and black as sin
Eye Color: Extremely pale blue
From: I’m an alien, so obviously not from this planet.
Significant Other: Serena Cross
Signature Move: There’s not any kind of trouble I can’t ass kick my way out of, but I guess I’m fond of neck breaking. It seems to get the job done. I can also feed off of the Luxen and humans which can be a pretty cool party trick.
Kill Highlights: I’ve killed so many of the Luxen that I’ve lost count. Not that they’re even worth counting. I do take great pleasure in killing anyone—Arum, Luxen, or human—that messes with Serena. Nobody, and I mean nobody, touches her. Ever.
Enemies: The Luxen are my biggest enemy, and now that I’ve met Serena, the government may be a close second. Too bad I don’t care. I can take any of them. Try me.
Favorite Pastime: I like to do things with my hands….yeah, those things. When I can’t find Serena to keep my hands busy, I like to use them to build and carve.
Other Facts: I can make some kickass bacon, I can speak to you in my true form by projecting my thoughts into your mind, I like to covet pretty things, I expect everyone to do everything my way, and I love blow…pops. I have bowls of them all over my house.
Hunter: So, I was asked to be a part of the Supernatural Smackdown and I knew I was the perfect fu–
Daemon: What. The. Hell.? You were asked to be a part of the Supernatural Smackdown?
Hunter: Seriously, Luxen? You think you can interrupt me? I’m gonna kick your–you know, what are you even doing here right now? You have your own books, so stay outta mine.
Daemon: I just stopped by because there must be some mistake. There is no way an Arum, you, would be chosen over a Luxen, uh me, to be in this Smackdown.
Hunter: Oh, little boy, you must not have heard, the Supernatural Smackdown is for adults, not kids. You might want to hurry along now because I think you are needed in the sandbox.
Daemon: You sure you want to go there, man? Because you aren’t really painting a great picture of yourself for this competition. Picking on a little boy and all.
Hunter: You know, I think you’re right. You just sit there quietly and suck your thumb while I list all the reasons I can take anyone in this competition. First, my badassery knows no limits.
Daemon: Is badassery even a real word?
Hunter: Shut up, Light Bright. Or, I’ll show you that badassery is most definitely a word.
Daemon: You know what? I’ve got far more important things to be doing than sitting here listening to you talk about yourself. Let’s just do this.
Hunter: This is gonna be so easy, it doesn’t really seem fair. But, you know what, Luxen? I don’t ever play fair so get ready.
Serena: Hey, Hey! Boys, just cut it out. Hunter, this is supposed to be a friendly Supernatural Smackdown and the Luxen isn’t even in the competition. And, you, Daemon is it? Just get out of here before this gets messy. You’ve got your own issues to be concerned with right now.
Daemon: You got your girl fighting your battles for you now, Hunter?
Hunter: At least I know where my woman is at the moment. She’s right here, right now, with me.
Daemon (turning to leave): Touché, Arum, Touché.
Serena (sighs): I wouldn’t say that went well.
Hunter: Well, no, it didn’t. I was just about to prove my badassery when you showed up.
Serena: I may have kept you from trying to kill him during the Supernatural Smackdown!
Hunter: If his mouth had kept running, there would have been no trying about it.
Serena: I seriously don’t know what to do with you sometimes.
Hunter: Oh, I know exactly what you can do with me…and it involves us getting out of here. Right. Now.

About this Book:
He’s arrogant, domineering, and… To. Die. For.
Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.
Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something… unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.
Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life…or is it Hunter?
