A worried Luc sits vigil over Kar as she give birth to their child, while wondering if he will be able to love the baby and be a good father.
This little story about Luc & Kar takes place eight months after the events of Sin Undone and shows the birth of their child. Based on their part in that book, I'd thought perhaps their story would play out as a secondary romance in future books of the series, but it looks like I may have been wrong. This story shows them happily living together and preparing for their future with a new little one. Up to this point, Luc has been so intensely alpha that he can be a bit of a jerk sometimes, so he hasn't been one of my favorite characters. But I really enjoyed this story, because he basically turns into a puddle of mush with worry over Kar as she gives birth and then over their baby afterward. This story really helped me to appreciate Luc more as a character and I very much enjoyed it. This story is available for free on the author's website as part of her Demonica: Overkill anthology of short stories.
