About this ebook

He enters her life through a nightmare. Now she sees him everywhere – at her shows, in a local shop, at her front door. These encounters no longer feel like a coincidence.

Renowned celebrity singer, Teresa McMillan, has a relatively ordinary personal life when she’s not in the limelight surrounded by star-struck fans and paparazzi.

On a recent tour, she has a startling nightmare about a man-like creature chasing her. She dismisses the dream because, after all, it is merely a dream. Upon finishing up her tour and getting settled back into a routine, she keeps running into a man named Ali Rahman that reminds her of the creature she encountered in her dream. But unlike the creature in her dream, this man is drop-dead gorgeous.

So why does his presence feel like that of the creature?



Shortly after meeting Ali, Teresa can kiss her ordinary private life goodbye. This seemingly innocent, gorgeous stranger belongs to a secret cult that traces its roots back to the 12th century. They thrive using the alchemy of King Solomon and use their powers to get whatever they want.


Now, Ali wants Teresa, and he will stop at nothing to make her his own. She will be lured into his sinister world like a moth to a flame as if he is controlling her every move. Upon realizing the trap she has fallen into, Teresa must escape Ali's clutches before it is too late.
