“Deliciously sexy!”—Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author
An urgent dilemma…
To save her impoverished family, Marian Langley will become a mistress. But she will not be just any mistress. Marian intends to become so skilled, so coveted, that she can set her own terms, retaining control over her body and her fate. Only one problem remains: finding a tutor…
A scandalous solution…
Other men deprive themselves of pleasure for propriety’s sake. Nathaniel, Duke of Warrington, would much rather be depraved. He slakes his desires with professionals who ask nothing of him but his coin. Marian’s proposal—that he train her without taking her virtue—is an intriguing diversion, until their lessons in seduction spin out of control.
And a most unlikely duchess…
When Marian is blackmailed into engagement by a man she despises, Nate impulsively steals her away. Though he never intended to take a wife, he can’t tolerate the idea of Marian forfeiting her freedom to another. But can he bear to give her what she demands—a real marriage?
Desperate to escape her vile fiancé, Lady Clara devises a bold lie—that she’s pregnant with another man’s child. With her reputation in tatters, Clara flees to Scotland to live out her days in disgrace, resigned to her fate as a spinster…until she claps eyes on the powerful and wickedly handsome Laird Hunt MacLarin.
She’s the answer to his curse…
Laird of an ancient clan, Hunt needs an heir, but he comes from a long line of men cursed to die before the birth of their firstborn. When the Duke of Autenberry approaches him with a proposition—marry my ruined sister—it seems the perfect solution. Even better, the defiant lass stirs him to his very soul.
No escaping the truth...
Except marriage cannot set them free. No matter how much Hunt desires her. No matter how much Clara burns for him. Soon she is falling for her husband, but is love enough to end the curse? Or is the tragic history of the MacLarin Clan doomed to repeat itself?

<b>How do you live with yourself when you decide who dies?</b>
<b>Book One: <i>Birthright</i></b>
Ava Parks would have killed for an iPhone for her sixteenth birthday. Anything would have been better than coming into her birthright of being a seeker for the Grim Reaper, an arrangement made by her fallen angel ancestor in exchange for his re-admittance to heaven. And she isn’t just any seeker—she finds souls that have the potential for becoming angels and sentences them to death. A year and two souls into her role as a seeker with her conscience overflowing with guilt, Ava comes up with a plan to thwart the system. When it goes awry, she is forced to submit the name of a classmate, Cole Fowler, an ornery, rough around the edges guy who always seems to come to her rescue, whether she likes it or not. Her feelings for Cole prompt her to intervene, and she saves him from death, upsetting the Grim Reaper’s agenda.
While Ava schemes to find a way to save Cole, she learns he has some secrets of his own. She lets him believe he is protecting her, and not the other way around, until a final showdown with the Grim Reaper forces Ava to make choices Cole may never forgive.
<b>Book Two: <i>Retribution</i></b>
Ava Parks’ job as a seeker for the Grim Reaper is one she wouldn’t wish on anyone. It’s her responsibility to find souls with the potential to become angels. Last fall she learned the hard way that bucking the system has its own set of consequences, as her choices nearly killed the two people she cares about most—her mother and the boy she’s come to love, Cole.
Now, Ava’s mother is fading fast. Her former handler—and the root of her problems—seems set on revenge. And Ava must confess to Cole the price he has to pay for her saving his life—a decision he may never forgive her for.

<b>Book Three: <i>Sacrifice</i></b>
Still reeling from a recent debilitating loss, Ava is convinced she has nothing left to lose. She is proven wrong when she’s forced to cut herself off from the love of her life, Cole, in order to keep his new role as a seeker a secret.
Without him by her side, Ava sets out to find other seekers and they help her embrace her new reality and better understand the system she’s entrenched in. As time passes though, nothing quells her need for vengeance against Xavier, her rogue former handler, who’s gone into hiding.
Independence isn’t easy and tough choices await Ava at every turn. She must decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to change her destiny—if she can change it at all.
<b>Book Four: <i>Redemption</i></b>
Since coming into her birthright of being a seeker for the Grim Reaper, Ava has made countless missteps trying to protect her loved ones, only to have it all backfire. Now she finally has the chance to settle the score with Xavier, the source of much of her misery, but sometimes revenge isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Will she allow herself to take the vengeance she has thirsted for? Can she forgive herself if she doesn’t?
Even worse, her enemies are after Cole, who hasn’t forgiven her leaving, and they’ll stop at nothing to find him.
Ava is tired of the corruption and lies. Most of all, she’s done hiding. This time, she’s ready to rid herself—and the world—of the twisted handler-seeker system... for good.
