They call him the Winter Wolf.
Nicholas March has few morals. fewer friends, and a notorious lack of honor.
And his heart? What remains of it is cold, desolate and locked away. He learned long ago the lessons of betrayal. Never trust a woman. Recognize others will expect the worst. And no matter the cost, always retain control of any situation.
Grace Willsdown has no patience for Society's silly games and no desire for the imprisonment of marriage. When a secret lien against her home is revealed, everything she treasures lies clenched in Nicholas's palm. She must make the Devil's bargain to save it all.
Five nights of pleasure and the claim will be dissolved. But neither Nicholas nor Grace anticipate the depths of their desire after their first night together. Consuming. Tender and brutal. Boundaries become distorted. What is the bargain? And what is true emotion?
Will they brave the storms and fires to unlock their love? Or turn their backs when the five nights are done?
