A master of dreams, a failure at life….
After another botched career attempt, Quinn Carmichael escapes to a remote lodge for a weekend recharge, needing respite…especially from the nightmares that haunt even her days. When a wounded, sexy-as-sin stranger faceplants unconscious on her kitchen floor, there’s something disturbingly familiar about him—as in he’s the boy from her childhood dreams. Mr. Dark, Dangerous, and Diabolical may be the key to unlocking the mysteries of her past and future, and Quinn isn’t about to let the opportunity—or him—escape without a fight.
His time is running out…
Known as Purgatory’s Missing Prince, Zaire’s existence has been one of endless pain, torture, and loss. Resigned to his fate, his final goal is simple—rescue his nephew before succumbing to the deadly darkness inside him. But when a fateful misstep brings him face-to-face with the one woman who could have saved him once upon a dream—the one woman he treasures above all else—he battles to keep his distance before he destroys her, too. But he would gladly sell his soul for just one taste.
Love draws them together, destiny will tear them apart
With ruthless enemies closing in, Quinn and Zaire must fight to save each other and those they care for before it’s too late—even if it means they’re doomed to live apart forever.
Danyella Foster’s night turns from mundane to monstrous when the man from her nightmares walks into her bar. No joke. Unfortunately for Ella, the punchline is her independence. She’s swept into a world she thought only existed in her Gran’s superstitions—a world of dreams, danger, and demons. He calls himself a V’alkara, but Ella knows what he really is, even if he doesn’t sparkle in sunlight or hiss at holy water. Surrender might be easy … if it didn’t cost her sister, her will, and the life she’s always known.
After enduring an existence enslaved to a cruel master, Daxen has found freedom with the new V’alkara regime. Being assigned to guard Ella—who may or may not be a sought-after dreamcaster, the women V’alkara need to survive—isn’t on his agenda. But he’s unprepared for the tempting sparks between them or how she enflames his protective instincts. After all, he’s incapable of love and already bound to another dreamcaster … isn’t he?
Yet when an enemy from Daxen’s past strikes and Ella is caught in the crossfire, they discover there are worse nightmares than surrendering to unlikely dreams.
Kidnapped by the man of her dreams, she must embrace the darkness within to save her life … and her heart.
