In the shadows of our world, a secret band of warriors fights to protect us. They are the last line of defense against an evil no human can stop.

An ancient nemesis has resurfaced. Duty demands that Ashor Vlahos, Scimitar Magi commander, recruit a magical healer to fortify the remaining eight magi. The gods’ choice is the woman who helped him escape torture a decade ago. Ashor couldn’t have imagined a better punishment for his vow-breaker homicidal incidents than for the gods to bind him irrevocably to the only woman in the universe he cannot have. The soul-searing desire she ignites in him is strictly forbidden.

Kira Hardy, M.D. is a brilliant, hardworking internal med resident with big secrets. But when Ashor asks for aid after a brutal daemon attack, she is sucked into his dangerous, secret world. Enslavement to the magi, no matter how hot they are, may be an unattractive life plan, but being targeted for death by their enemies is less tolerable.

She must trust the sexy, tormented Ashor to keep her safe while he must deny his ultimate desire and keep Kira at arm’s length lest he bring destruction down on them both. As a centuries-old evil catches up to them, they face a crucial decision–follow the gods’ rules or follow their hearts.

*Warning: Contains explicit sex, graphic language, action-adventure, and an exceptionally hot tatted hero.

After an unjustified two-century stint in purgatory, Scimitar Magus Dakar returns to the human realm, renewing his eons-old curse. Once again he must murder the woman he loves. To break the vicious cycle, he must kill her before she strikes her deathblow, something he’s never done in the past.

Archaeology grad student, Shay McGinnis, suffers a near-death attack in pursuit of a piece of Scimitar Magi lore.  But did the magnificent warrior who pinned her to the wall injure her or the daemon he fought?  In her search for answers, she draws the attention of both an ancient evil sorcerer and the warrior Dakar. The attraction between her and Dakar is instant, and for Shay confusing. She wants to be with him, but intuition equates him with death. Not random death. Hers.

Will this be the lifetime they break the curse before they are murdered by an age old enemy or worse kill each other yet again?

Guest Post by Author Zoe Forward:

I’m excited to be visiting Why Can’t I Stop Reading today. Are you a reader who loves hot alpha heroes? If so, we have a lot in common, and I’ve got a treat for you today! Get prepared to get up close and personal with the hero of my paranormal romance, Forgotten In Darkness. This second installment in my Scimitar Magi series features kick-ass warriors that work for the Egyptian gods to protect us from daemons. In this book Dakar and Shay were cursed eons ago by a dark magic sorcerer to


1. Four words that describe Dakar:

Protective, powerful, tortured, cursed

2. Three things he loves about our heroine, Shay?

She’s smart, gutsy, and loyal.

3. Who would play Dakar in a movie?

  I had a pic of Joe Manganiello on my desktop whenever writing.

 4. What does Dakar look like?

I’m so letting Shay (our heroine) handle this one. Here’s her first impression:

She squinted into the shadows where he’d taken up residence—big and scary-looking. The earful she planned to unleash about his abysmal greeting skills lodged itself mid-throat when another lightning burst lit him up. And she processed his full frontal.

Oh, my. His appearance correlated with the Egyptian accent; at least, the cheekbones made sense. The power and danger radiating from him mesmerized her. All thought vacated her mind like the last sand grain whooshing to the bottom of an hourglass. Words spilled from her mouth, but she couldn’t have told a soul what she’d said.

For further description of Dakar’s yumminess, you’ll have to read the book!

Read more about Zoe’s books and her new release, Forgotten in Darkness:





Shay’s brain ordered her body to make a break for it, or at least let loose a scream to draw attention, but she stood there, dazed and staring. It was the throw-your-panties-off-gorgeous bad boy from her hotel room.

My God, this guy was a brick shithouse oozing don’t-screw-with-me vibes. And didn’t that just make her knees weak. She was so not a swooning type of girl.

Despite the warmth of the day, he wore a knee-length black leather jacket. No doubt, he was armed out the wazoo beneath it.

He subjected her to a scrutinizing once-over. A swirling black substance in his irises mesmerized her. She hadn’t noticed that last night.

What was this guy? Definitely not completely human. A month ago, she would’ve rationalized the sludgy black substance obscuring the real color of his irises into normalcy and remained in complete denial of anything amiss.

She wondered if this guy might just be the real deal–one of those mythical, sorcerer-like immortals obligated to fight daemons for all eternity. A Scimitar Magus. Shouldn’t he be a good guy? A hero figure? Why then did her intuition demand immediate evasion? For some reason, her gut equated this guy with death, but not random death. Hers.
