Shameless: House of Vipera by Laura Wright
Chosen as a member of the harem by the Three was not Rosamund’s plan.  She wanted a normal life with a human husband and family.  Rosamund had stumbled across a little know clause that stated if a Nephilim was not selected by an Incubus within the first year, she will be released.   Free to return to her little apartment, Roger and a normal life.  Enters Scarus the leader of the House of Vipera who needs to recharge his energy and only a Nephilim from the harem will do the job.  He had been betrayed before by a Nephilim that had stolen his son and caused the child’s death.  All he needed was to recharge, nothing else.  Rosamund had been deliberately disguising herself to look as horrible as possible so when Scarus selects her for the night she is devastated.  When he had selected her all he had seen were her beautiful eyes and he had felt the tremendous power in her blood. Instant attraction and want will it be enough?  Will the two find what both are searching for?  Must read book!
