Ten years ago, one passionate night with Markus changed me. But it was also wrong. I haven’t seen him since…. Until now. He’s back in town, and to make matters worse, he’s working for my brother. I can’t seem to get him out of my mind, and there’s an obvious connection pulling us together. The only problem is, I have a boyfriend. Maybe it’s karma keeping us apart, punishing us for our secret tryst a decade ago. Maybe we’re just not meant to be together. Whatever it may be, Markus and I are having a difficult time finding our rhythm.Ten years ago, one passionate night with Markus changed me. But it was also wrong. I haven’t seen him since….

I was ordered to take Zoey as my bride. But fact is, I wanted to bind her to me in all ways. Now she’s slapped divorce papers in front of me and told me to get out. Except she’s in trouble, and it’s a given that I’ll protect what’s mine. Even if she doesn’t want me to. What I discover is a depth to my wife that I never imagined, and now I can’t sign those papers or let her go. Until I find out she’s betrayed me. The blackest hearts still beat…and mine drums with revenge against the people trying to end my family’s reign. And my disobedient wife will find out what my brand of punishment really is. She’s about to learn another truth about me—I always get what I want, and right now, that’s her. A bride in more trouble than she can handle…and the man who can show her just how far he is willing to go for her. Lord help her, she wants to give up all the control to him too.
They said I was special, that I had a bright future. They didn’t say that it was necessarily a good thing. “Magic is real!” That’s what the elderly woman proclaimed to me. Yeah, I didn’t buy it. It reeked of a scam, but I went with it. What was the worst that could happen? As long as I didn’t give them my credit card number, I’d be fine. Turned out I was wrong. Magic did exist. And you know what? I wasn’t half-bad at it. Unfortunately, a lot of other terrifying things existed too. I was lost and confused until I befriended a fledgling necromancer named Corbin who helped me get my bearings. The impossibly attractive Samael Bardot wormed his way into my life as I got more comfortable with the school. He was incredibly annoying at first, especially since he could read minds, but the more time I spent around him the more depth I found to the seemingly immature man. His incredible physique didn’t hurt things, either. Seriously, why is a warlock so muscular? My excitement at my newfound capabilities was quickly replaced by fear as something began stalking me. I had felt uneasy for a while, thinking it was just fear of the unknown, but it was something more sinister. Something deeper. Something not from this plane of existence.
It all started with a bet. When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up. Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property. We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches. You could say we got off on the wrong foot. We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out. He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work. I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast. We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it. But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof. Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son. We were in over our heads in more ways than one. Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother. And now the inn was the least of my problems.
