In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series THE DARK ELEMENTS, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…

Dez and Jasmine have been friends for a long time. They understand each other and they trust each other. They both are raised to fight off demons and keep the balance between good and evil. Jasmine’s father told them one day that they were to be married… Well mated. When Jasmine thought that everything was going great, Daz disappeared without saying a word.

Three years later, Dez returns and he’s ready to continue as if nothing ever happened. Can Jasmine trust him again? She has 7 days to decide…

my thoughts 2

I swear, Jennifer L. Armentrout NEVER fails for me to OBSESS over her books. I recently finished White Hot Kiss (which is the first book) and holy cow guys. I promise this is SO worth the read!

AND GARGOYLES?!?! How many authors have you come across that have talked about GARGOYLES?! I haven’t come across one!

I can’t get over how much I LOVED this novella. I really wish it was longer because I wanted to see more of Dez and Jasmine’s story. — Just so you know, White Hot Kiss isn’t from their perspectives, it’s Layla, a character you meet in the novella.

I promise this is so worth the read! You get more of an understanding of the world before you dive into the book.

Everything about this was amazing. I can’t.. I just can’t with Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’m now highly driven to read all her books!

“Nothing in this world is stronger than love. It should always be enough. No matter what.”– Jennifer L. Armentrout, Bitter Sweet Love


“I’ve missed you, Jas. You have no idea,” he continued, reaching toward me again but stopping short of touching me. “I thought about you every damn day. All I wanted was to get back to you and the clan. But mostly you. Always you.” — Jennifer L. Armentrout, Bitter Sweet Love
