Beth and Ryan find themselves at a crossroads. They can either part and try to find happiness or stay and accept their fate. After the tragedy they endured in their own home Beth is still trying her best to explore a love she cannot quite accept with Mani. His patience with her is nothing short of miraculous as she battles to make him more than just a carnal pleasure. Ryan is fighting his own demons, which have expanded from not only sexual but self destructive. All the while new enemies have risen up from the grave and are more than willing to try to consume them all.
Redemption can be found, even in hell, if that is where you happen to be.
"This installment is spellbinding, intriguing, and full of twisted turns that kept me guessing what was going to happen next... of course... I was completely thrown for a loop as the scenes played out... I woke up thinking about this read, to me that is a sign of a great story. One of my all-time favorite series by Rue Volley."
~Lovetiggi Book Reviews
"It was bittersweet to see the series end because of how the characters pull you in, but it had a spectacular ending and I couldn't have asked for one better."
Bethany was born into a world of privilege and has never had to want for anything in her life. Her parents gave her everything but the one thing she desired the most...love. When Bethany’s mother dies, her Father becomes even more distant with the immediate replacement of Bethany’s mother by “Miko”, a woman who has no compassion nor interest in Bethany whatsoever.
On her own and living in a penthouse, a lavish gift from her father, Bethany ignores all responsibility as she lives on a weekly allowance her Father is sure to place into her bank account. With too much time on her hands, Bethany is free to pursue other interests such as a young man she never cared for in school named Ryan Blackwood. Ryan is a male escort for hire and has made his living on pleasuring the higher echelons of New York society women, but when he meets Bethany his game is shifted from one of hunter to one of prey and he will soon find out that she is not the easy target he once imagined.
Their torrid love affair is filled with a painful need to harm each other in every way, including the bedroom. Will Bethany finally receive the love she has always desired or will her lineage doom her forever?
"There are no predicting what will happen. If you have a direction of how you want the story to go, GET IT OUT OF YOUR HEAD, because it won't be what you expect!!! The ending was perfect, absolutely perfect."
~Jennifer Baker Bridges

She ventures out and finds danger at the hands of what may be her only redemption. This one act sets the chess game in motion as a new man enters their lives and Bethany finds it very hard to resist him. Threatened and fearing rejection, Ryan contacts an old enemy and invites the darkness back in. All the while, August and Cas both harbor dark secrets of their own, navigating a world both Ryan and Beth are not even aware of until it may be too late. Sometimes no matter what you do, the dragon will rise.
