Daniel Light is a powerful wizard prince on the hunt for a dangerous prophecy—only to find it's in the hands of Zoe Blackwood, the woman he'd adored, and who'd firmly friend-zoned him, when he was a gangly teen. Daniel can get his hands on the prophecy by seducing Zoe at a masked ball, settling accounts with her. Yet he finds he wants to woo her.
Wolf shifter Zoe Blackwood throws a classy, grand masked ball as her last chance at romance before her wolf forces her to mate. She remembers Daniel as that rich, awkward boy she could always count on yet never really noticed. When he shocks her by showing up at her ball, he's still rich but not awkward at all, and she notices his deadly grace plenty. But can she still count on him?
Then an evil fire wizard crashes the party, eager to get his hot hands on Zoe—and her prize, an ancient parchment. She's horrified to discover both men are really after the parchment for its hidden prophecy—and she's caught in the crosshairs.
Warning: A wolf shifter on the cusp of mate-or-else, a smokin' hot wizard who won't let anything stand in his way, and sexy times in closets.
